Proteins are very essential macromolecules as they have a range of many important functions like:

• Required for building and repair of body tissues (including muscle)

• Enzymes, hormones, and many immune molecules are proteins

• Essential body processes such as water balancing, nutrient transport, and muscle contractions require protein to function.

• Protein is a source of energy.

• Protein helps keep skin, hair, and nails healthy.
