OATS is a Excellent Source of Protein

Protein makes up the structure of most cells in the human body. The major function of protein with regards to exercise is its involvement in the reparation and development of all tissues and hence it is essential for muscle growth. Protein is made up of small molecules called amino acids. While some amino acids are manufactured by the body, some must be obtained through the diet. These are known as the essential amino acids. All 22 a.a must be present in order for the body to metabolize protein properly.
