What are proteins?

The human body needs proteins. In the course of the body’s own utilisation process proteins are split into their individual amino acids. In the next step, the body now builds up its own proteins of these amino acids – as needed.

The proteins are indispensable for a variety of tasks. Among other things, they are needed for cell regeneration and tissue formation, and they are also crucial for muscle growth. Low-protein malnutrition can have risky consequences for both humans and animals.
