What Is The Best Protein: Animal Protein or Plant Based Protein?

High-quality complete protein is only available from animal sources because they have an amino acid pattern similar to that needed by the body. Plant-based proteins are deficient in one or more of the essential amino acids including lycine and cysteine, making them low-quality, incomplete proteins. Rotating protein sources is the best way to take advantage of the unique properties each bring to the table and assure that you’re getting all the amino acids and other micronutrients you need. Grass-fed beef, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, wild meats like bison and deer, and protein powders are your best choices for muscle building and the overall health benefits of protein.
