Protein is essential for building and repairing muscle tissue, but it’s also required for every other tissue in your body -- hair, skin, nails, organs, etc.
Protein is also needed for the creation of thousands of enzymes that play vital roles in metabolism (including the digestion of food), proper immune function, hormone and neurotransmitter synthesis, and optimal bone development.
Without adequate protein intake, not only do your workouts suffer, but your body’s overall integrity and function do, too.
