Proteins are one of three primary macronutrients that provide energy to the human body, alongside other macronutrients, fats and carbohydrates. Proteins are also responsible for a large portion of the work that is done in cells; they are necessary for proper structure and function of tissues and organs, and also act to regulate them. Proteins are comprised of a number of amino acids that are essential to proper body function, and serve as the building blocks of body tissue.

Protein important for building and repairing lean tissue (like muscle), but it is also essential for many body functions. Essentially every single cell in the body is made up of proteins, including your DNA, red blood cells, and bones; and are in a constant state of breaking down and rebuilding, requiring protein and amino acids.

If you don’t eat enough protein through food, your body has to tap into your stores to maintain normal protein turnover - and this means you could potentially lose muscle.
