Why Do People Who Workout Take Protein Supplements

The answer varies from person to person. Some people take them because their friends take them. Others take them because their nutritionist told them to take protein supplements. Some people take them because they believe that protein supplements increase muscle size, and other people take them because they have fully researched the supplements and believe that they are the supplement for them. Before you decide which reason(s) is the correct one, let’s examine what protein is.

A protein is a chain of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of organic life and are what your genes (DNA) are made up of. They are tiny molecules, which when stretched into a string (a chain) create a protein. This means that protein can be found in any organic living thing (even jellyfish). It is also present in plant life, but in much, much smaller numbers. This is why vegetarians often need protein supplements, because they are not getting enough through their diet.
