The Perfect Protein
Amino acids combine to form proteins. Together, they are the basic building blocks in our body. Amino acid deficiency can lead to illness. We need to make sure we get enough protein in our diets.

Not all proteins are created equally. We eat proteins so our bodies can make that protein into something useful. Quality of protein in fruits, vegetables and nuts is poor, as the body doesn’t synthesize them as well. Eggs, meat and fish can be more efficiently utilized by the body.
