And, animal sources remain the most popular means of getting the muscle-building macronutrient.
Animal protein contains all of the 22 amino acids necessary to build muscle tissue, including the nine essential amino acids that must be obtained through diet. This complete amino acid profile gives animal protein an edge over plant-based alternatives.
