Proteins

Protein is found throughout the body—in muscle, bone, skin, hair, and virtually every other body part or tissue. All of our cells and even blood are packed with protein molecules. It makes up the enzymes that power many chemical reactions and the hemoglobin that carries oxygen in your blood.

Protein helps replace worn out cells, transports various substances throughout the body, and aids in growth and repair. Consuming protein can also increase levels of the hormone glucagon, and glucagon can help to control body fat.
