    We have a lot of proteins present in our body. These proteins are in the form of hormones, antibodies, cell components, enzymes, structure. Without any of these chemical substances our body will not function well. For instance if there is a lack of protein which forms an enzyme, there will be no enzymatic activity which was supposed to occur giving an important product. So because the body is deficit of that protein, a disorder might result.

    similarly hormones play a vital role in body functions from growth to reproductive processes and many many more.
