The first concern that may arise is the meaning of proteins and what they can do to our body. Proteins are one of the building blocks of our bodies. They constitute about 16% of the total weight of a human-build. Proteins make up the hair, muscles, skin and many necessary tissues of our body.
Many important functions performed by our body are primarily due to the presence of proteins and majority of the reactions in the cells take place because of the presence of proteins in the body. Furthermore many of the crucial constituents like enzymes, hormones and DNA are made up of protein chains.
