Today we will talk about a much loved companion for a fitness enthusiast – proteins!
The building blocks of our health, proteins are available in every cell in our body. At 4 calories per gram, proteins can offer the body energy, if carbohydrate consumption is low, while also performing several important functions.
Developing, maintaining and repairing muscles and tissues, regulation of essential hormones such as insulin and secretin, promoting healthy antibodies that ward off infections and boosting immune system while promoting good brain health are some of the important tasks that make proteins a crucial macronutrient.
Based on your genes, the amount of protein that you require is different from everybody else.
