Q -WHY IS PROTEIN IMPORTANT?
Physical activity increases protein turnover in the muscles. Very hard exercise also causes an increase of muscle breakdown and because of this the muscles need to be “repaired”. Therefore, it´s important to get protein when exercising.
Q -WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROTEIN AND AMINO ACIDS/WHAT IS AN AMINO ACID?
Protein consists of amino acids which help to maintain muscle mass. 20 amino acids make up a complete protein. 9 of them are essential – our bodies can’t produce them, so we need to get them from our diet instead.
