Protein is a nutrient that is essential for growth and development. Protein is the second most abundant compound in the body after water and is fundamental to the structural and functional properties of all cells in our body. Our muscles are made of protein and some of our most important anabolic hormones are made of protein including insulin and growth hormone.

Proteins are involved with the metabolism of energy and nutrients in our body. In terms of sport, protein is the primary essential nutrient capable of building new muscle and repairing damaged muscle. Protein is found in both animal and plant sources, with animal sources being the best source of complete protein due to high availability of all amino acids.
