Proteins are found in high concentrations in foods such as steaks, chicken, eggs, and fish. Proteins can also be found in meat substitutes such as soy and tofu. Our body utilizes proteins to build and fix tissue as well as produce hormones and antibodies. Proteins also help our bodies build muscle which makes this nutrient an imperative piece to physical therapy and exercise. However, protein needs to be consumed in controlled portions. Too much protein can be unhealthy. Our Monmouth County nutritionists at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation will show you how to measure your protein intake effectively and efficiently.
