Protein is one of three macronutrients the body needs to sustain life. Smaller components called amino acids are linked together to form different proteins, and when we consume these proteins, the amino acids are broken down and subsequently reformed into the building blocks our body needs in order to function properly.
All cellular action depends on protein and amino acids to function.

This means bodily priorities like internal organ health and function and cell function will have their own protein needs taken care of before the body allows recovering muscles to be satisfied with their protein needs. When a muscle is exercised its tissue is broken down, causing a need for protein to support repair and essentially this leads to a bigger, stronger muscle.
