The Protein Connection: Boost Your Immune System & Relieve Digestive Issues
We created this guide to help readers learn how to make the most of their protein intake with wise food choices and whole-food supplements.

Protein also plays a key role in balancing the bacteria and mucous lining of the digestive system. The Omega-3 fatty acids in protein-rich fish and nuts can lower inflammation, promote healing and reduce the risk of certain diseases.
