Protein Facts

  • Proteins can transmit and commute signals from living cells & tissues.
  • Protein keeps you fuller because protein boosts the level of Peptide YY (a hormone made in the small intestine which helps reduce appetite and limit food intake).
  • Proteins primarily replace worn out cells and damaged tissues. Human tissues may be impaired from physical or cellular injury, so proteins fix them.
