“Our cells en­gage in pro­tein pro­duc­tion, and many of those pro­teins are en­zymes re­spon­si­ble for the chem­istry of life.” ~ Randy Schek­man,No­bel Prize-win­ningAmer­i­can cell bi­ol­o­gist

Pro­tein is a crit­i­cal part of our diet. We need it to build and re­pair cells, and make mus­cles, or­gans, glands, and skin. Ev­ery­one needs a min­i­mum amount of pro­tein each day. It is im­por­tant to main­tain a bal­anced diet chart that in­cludes healthy and nat­u­ral pro­tein-rich foods. That, though, is eas­ier said than done. Keep­ing a tab on meet­ing one’s daily re­quire­ment for pro­tein and other nu­tri­ents needs con­stant ef­fort. More of­ten than not, one is un­able to meet the pro­tein, mi­cronu­tri­ent, and fi­bre re­quire­ments due to poor fruit veg­etable, pulse, and whole grain con­sump­tion. And if that is the case, sup­ple­ment­ing one’s diet with pro­tein can make a dif­fer­ence to over­all fit­ness and well­be­ing. The rec­om­mended di­etary al­lowance (RDA) for pro­tein is a mod­est 0.8 grams of pro­tein per kilo­gram of body weight, or 0.36 grams per pound
