More information about our protein calculator:

Protein is one of the three essential macronutrients your body needs to survive and thrive (protein, carbohydrates and fats). We need protein for various essential functions, including building and repairing tissues, producing enzymes and hormones, and supporting immune system function. The body uses protein to build and repair muscles after intense workouts, helping you gain strength and recover faster.

Proper protein intake is important because it supports muscle growth and repair, aids in recovery after workouts, helps maintain a healthy metabolism, and ensures overall body function by providing essential amino acids necessary for various physiological processes. This protein intake calculator can be used to tell you how much protein you need and help you find high protein foods to make more progress in the gym.
