Why do we need protein?
All the cells in our body contain protein. We need it to perform basic functions in our body and support us with the energy we need each and every day.
Because our body doesn’t store protein, we have to get them from the food we eat.
Low protein intake can be the first reason for fatigue, anemia, lengthens our body recovery time and many other disorders.
A quick and easy way to get extra protein into your diet is using a protein powder supplement like Grilo Protein.
