What is protein? We probably have underestimated what protein really is. In reality, you will not be able to execute normal functions in life without this macronutrient. Protein acts as one of the main building blocks in the body—your muscles, organs, tendons, and even your hair and nails uses protein. Our body also uses protein to make hormones, neurotransmitters, enzymes and even other essential body chemicals.
