    Protein is the building block of all life and is essential for the growth of cells and tissue repair. You will here and read about the importance of protein in every nurtition artical you come across the world over. The reason for this is without protein pressent you can not build muscle. It really is as simple as that.

    All proteins are made up of different combinations of 20 compounds called amino acids.

    Depending on which amino acids link together, protein molecules form enzymes, hormones, muscles, organs and many other tissues in the body.

    There are two types of amino acids:
    non-essential amino acids can be made by the body.
    essential amino acids cannot be made by the body and must be got from food. There are nine essential amino acids.

    Types of protein

    Animal protein

    Animal proteins contain all the essential amino acids.

    This type of protein is found in:

    .Dairy products.

    Oily fish (salmon, sardines, trout, tuna) is a good source of protein. It has the added advantage of being high in types of fatty acid that provide protection against heart attack and to some extent stroke.

    Oily fish contain up to eight times as much omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids as lean fish (cod, haddock, skate).

    Plant protein

    Plant protein contains many amino acids, but no single source contains all of the essential amino acids.

    This type of protein is found in:

    .Legumes (peas, green beans)
    .Soya products
    .Vegetable protein foods such as Quorn or veggie mince.

    You need to combine different plant proteins to make up the complete range of amino acids needed by your body. This is there reason most trainers rely on meat and dairy proteins as there 1st port of call.
