  • Supplementary or complementary protein:

If u take two or more types of incomplete protein in combine formed, that is called complementary protein. It is very crucial in muscle building.

Structure of protein:

       1.Primary structure:

In ordinary circumstances, 20 amino acid merged with protein is called the primary structure.

       2.Secondary structure:

When protein combined and looks like 3D protein, then it called secondary protein.

         3.Tertiary structure:

When more than three bond combine, protein becomes more 3d in look and that types of protein called tertiary structure protein.

The function of protein:

The human body needs the right amount of protein to increase strength or muscle and maintain a daily routine. It is necessary to consume the average amount of protein in the daily diet in a healthy life.
