1) Protein is a source of backup energy that your body stores, a large complex molecule made up of one or more chains of amino acids. Proteins perform a wide variety of activities in the cell.

Highly complex nitrogenous compounds found in all animal and vegetable tissues. Proteins, the principal constituents of the protoplasm of all cells (apart from water), are of high molecular weight and consist essentially of combinations of amino acids in peptide linkages. Twenty different amino acids are commonly found in proteins and each protein has a unique, genetically defined amino acid sequence that determines its specific shape and function.
