Protein is a composition of amino acids which are organic compounds of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen or sulphur. There are around 20 types of amino acids which are arranged in millions of different ways to create millions of different proteins. Proteins are present in different forms in a human body. They can be structural like collagen, hormonal like insulin, carrier like hemoglobin or enzymes like amylase. Proteins perform various functions within an organism including building muscle mass, strengthening and replacing or repairing tissues.
Animal protein is known as complete proteins as they have all the essential amino acids which a human body cannot create on its own. All foods made from meat, fish, poultry, dairy etc. are the sources of animal protein. Animal proteins help in improving muscle mass and cholesterol level and reducing risk of heart disease.
