Protein is the building block for our body. It is an important component of every cell in our body. Our body repairs tissue with the help of proteins. Our bones, muscles, skin blood, nails and hair are mainly made of proteins. Protein is a macro-nutrient that means that our body needs a relatively large amount of protein for normal functions. And unlike fats and carbohydrate the body does not store protein and so we need to have a protein rich diet to be healthy. Depending on age and sex, a healthy adult needs about 50-60 grams of protein everyday. For a body builder it is around 120 grams. The more active you are, the more proteins you need.
