Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
Along with fat and carbohydrates, protein is a "macronutrient," meaning that the body needs relatively large amounts of it. But unlike fat and carbohydrates, the body does not store protein, and therefore has no reservoir to draw on when it needs a new supply.
Choose Your Proteins Wisely
Grass-fed protein is better! Grass-fed whey protein comes from grass-fed cows. These cows are raised in a more traditional manner, free to graze fields and eat naturally grown grass. They are not fed grains of soy and/or corn. They aren’t injected with antibiotics or pumped full of steroids.
