Protein is essential in the human body to build and repair body tissues. It is essential for regulation of metabolism, digestion and maintenance of fluids balance. Antibodies for healthy immune systems are developed with the help of proteins (high resistance to diseases and infections). They are converted to energy if the supply of carbohydrate in the diet is insufficient.
