Proteins are a vital part of a healthy diet. It helps in the growth and recovery of tissues, including the skin, bones, eyes, and, most importantly, muscles, and also helps maintain a healthy immune system. Also, protein-rich food gives a feeling of satiety, reduce appetite and reduce hunger because the function of proteins is such that they travel more slowly through the digestive tract, and therefore, we feel a more extended sense of satiety.
