Protein is an important macronutrient that every cell in the body needs. It helps build and repair cells and body tissues, including the skin, hair, muscle, and bone. It is also important for blood clotting, immune system responses, hormones, and enzymes.
Protein is one of three macronutrients, which are nutrients the body needs in larger amounts. The other macronutrients are fat and carbohydrates. Protein is important for growth and development, especially during childhood, adolescence, and pregnancy.
Protein is made up of long chains of amino acids, there are 20 amino acids. The specific order of amino acids determines the structure and function of each protein.
There are nine essential amino acids that the human body does not synthesize, so they must come from the diet.
Protein deficiency can lead to weak muscle tone, swelling due to fluid retention, thin & brittle hair, and skin lesions; in adults, a loss of muscle mass, in children, growth deficits and hormone imbalances.

Glucotrix Energy Booster contains BCAAs (Branched-chain amino acids), a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These amino acids are grouped together because they are the only three amino acid to have a chain that branches off to one side.
BCAAs are considered essential because, unlike non-essential amino acids, your body cannot make them. Therefore, it is essential to get them from your diet. They represent around 35–40% of all essential amino acids present in your body and 14–18% of those found in your muscles.
BCAAs are mostly broken down in the muscle, rather than in the liver and play a role in energy production during exercise. They may also be involved in regulating your blood sugar levels by preserving liver and muscle sugar stores and stimulating your cells to take in sugar from your bloodstream.
Out of the three, leucine is thought have the biggest impact on your body’s capacity to build muscle proteins. Meanwhile, isoleucine and valine seem more effective at producing energy and regulating your blood sugar levels.
- Increases muscle growth
