What is Protein?
Proteins are called the building blocks of our bodies, a macronutrient, and contained in every cell, tissue and organ in the human body. Structurally, they are large complex molecules made up of long, branch chains amino acids (BCAA’s) which are highly concentrated in muscle tissue and are used to fuel working muscles, repair cells, and to produce new cells.
Next to water, protein is the most abundant substance in our bodies BUT…while the body reproduces many of the 20 amino acids it needs to function properly, 9 are not and must be replenished daily through food sources.
Food sources of protein include: beef, chicken, poultry, fish, eggs, diary products, nuts, seeds, and legumes like black beans and lentils
Trimino Features Whey Protein Isolate
trimino protein infused water is made with whey protein isolate and includes essential amino acids required by the human body to perform effectively.
The whey protein isolate offers the highest percentage of pure protein, is easily digestible, and is lactose, carbohydrate, cholesterol, and fat free.
Protein Function & Purpose
Energy: Is a major source of energy for the body
Enzymes: are proteins that increase the rate of chemical reactions in the body (how the body processes and metabolize molecules, etc.). Example: aiding in the digestion of large protein, carbohydrate, and fat molecules into smaller molecules.
Transportation and Storage of Molecules: Protein is a major element in the transportation of specific molecules. Example: hemoglobin is a protein that transports oxygen throughout the body.
Antibodies: Protein forms antibodies that help prevent infection, illness, and disease. They identify and assist in destroying antigens such as bacteria and viruses.
