Protein is extremely important for anyone looking to lose weight, build muscle, or just be generally healthy. Protein is responsible for the growth and repair of many structures in the body, such as the muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments, and plays important roles in carrying nutrients in the bloodstream, maintaining the immune system and helping to make the natural chemical reactions which happen inside our bodies.
