Always add and mix the protein last.
The Health Benefits of Protein is that it is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. Protein is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the "building blocks" for healthy bodies. Protein has a number of different roles in the body including the following: Repair body cells, Build and repair muscles and bones, Provide a source of energy and Control many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism.
The body is able to make non-essential amino acids from other amino acids in the body. However, the body is not able to make essential amino acids and the only way to get them is by eating high quality protein foods. Protein sources that contain all of the essential amino acids are called complete proteins.
