Benefits of Protein

Protein is one of those nutrients that are available in most diets. Our hair and nails are mostly made of protein and so we need this nutrient to keep our hair and nails healthy. Our bones, cartilage, and muscles also need protein to function well. Without protein, we’d be virtually nothing. Protein can also help with keeping hunger at bay, which explains why people who are active in sports take protein supplements and shakes.

Deficiencies in protein will not only affect how you feel, but how you look. Your skin and hair will be brittle and dry. Your muscles will basically waste away. You need protein to stay alive and well.
