What Exactly Is Protein?
Proteins make up 20% of your muscles, tissues and cells. Proteins are long chains of AMINO ACIDS. Amino acids are building blocks that we get from our diet. There are 20 amino acids, nine of which are considered “essential” because the body cannot create them; they must be absorbed from the food you eat or supplementation.
