Consume all the various kinds of protein for a optimal muscular development and brain chemistry!

Protein, protein, protein!

As we know, proteins are the building blocks of muscles, and if you work out, then protein is your best friend.

But is any protein suitable for you? Well, yes and no.

There isn’t just one kind of protein – there are many different forms. Some are better than others depending on the situation. We are going to run down the list of different proteins and their benefits, and when and how you should be consuming them.

Proteins come from many different sources – animals, dairy, fish, nuts-grains-and-seeds, legumes, and plants. Even fruits carry some protein. Basically, protein is found in most things.

It is important to know the differences of each protein, and even more important to know how much protein to ingest and when.

By definition, from WikiPedia, PROTEINS are

large biological molecules consisting of one or more chains of amino acids. Proteins perform a vast array of functions within living organisms, including catalyzing metabolic reactions, replicating DNA, responding to stimuli, and transporting molecules from one location to another. Proteins differ from one another primarily in their sequence of amino acids, which is dictated by the nucleotide sequence of their genes, and which usually results in folding of the protein into a specific three-dimensional structure that determines its activity.
