Protein is an essential nutrient with a variety of roles in the body, including growth and maintenance of cells. Intake of protein is necessary to maintain muscle. Protein deficiency can occur whenever protein is lacking in the diet or if calorie intake is inadequate. Furthermore, some physical or medical conditions require an increased amount of protein in the diet.
Nestlé Health Science offers a variety of supplemental and nutritionally complete products to help meet daily protein needs. Individuals should check with their healthcare professional to determine which protein powder or protein-containing drink is most appropriate.
