Proteins are essential nutrients made up of 22 amino acids
that build and repair body tissues. They are needed not only for
muscle but also for hair, skin and internal organs and a very
important part of a well-balanced diet. Proper nutrition is
critical for optimal health and achieving the results you
desire. Exercise regularly and eat right: you'll be on the right
track to looking, feeling, and performing at your very best.
Withhold key nutrients and eat poorly: your body will have
little energy and your muscles will have literally nothing with
which to repair and improve themselves.
