Protein is the most abundant substance in the body after water. It is vitally important for the growth, maintenance and repair of all body tissues. Therefore protein is one of the most important components of a healthy diet. It is a major component of bones, muscles, blood, nerves, internal organs, hair, skin, nails, ligaments and tendons. Hormones such as thyroid hormone and insulin are also reliant on protein, as is the immune system, which requires adequate protein for the formation of antibodies. Protein is made up of amino acids, 22 of which are required by the human body. Eight of these are known as essential amino acids because they must be consumed in the diet. Unlike the others, the essential amino acids cannot be synthesised by the body.

Proteins are indispensable for body development, replenishment of lost blood, healing of wounds and scars, replacement of dead cells, and hair and nail growth need proteins. Proteins in the form of enzymes, hormones and antibodies promote healthy metabolic and physiological processes, and boost our nervous and immunity systems. In situations when fat and carbohydrate food sources are not providing adequate calories, proteins are degraded to generate the calories our body needs.
