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.

BENEFITS OF CURCUMIN(TURMERIC)
- Anti-Inflammatory: As chronic inflammation contributes to many chronic diseases, curcumin may help treat conditions like inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, and arthritis. The results may be more effective than inflammation-fighting medications.
- Protect Against Heart Disease: Curcumin may improve endothelial function, or the health of the thin membrane that covers the inside of the heart and blood vessels.
- Prevent (and Possibly Help Treat) Cancer: As inflammation is linked to tumor growth, anti-inflammatory compounds such as curcumin may play a role in treating and preventing a variety of cancer types, including colorectal, pancreatic, prostate, breast, and gastric cancers.
- Osteoarthritis: It may be a safe and effective long-term treatment option for people with osteoarthritis (OA).
- Increases the Antioxidant Capacity: Oxidative damage is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind aging and many diseases. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure.
- Boosts BDNF: Curcumin Boosts Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor(a protein found in the brain and spinal cord that plays a key role in keeping nerve cells healthy and regulating communication between nerve cells, which is critical for learning and memory).
