Proteins Are the Basis of Our Structure and Function

The name protein is derived from the Greek term proteos, which means "primary" or "to take place first." Protein was first identified in a laboratory about a century ago at which time scientists described it as a nitrogen-containing part of food that is essential to human life. While protein has long been the darling of the weight lifting and sport community, over the past few years there has been more attention focused on the importance of protein during weight loss and general health.
