Contrary to what you might believe, it isn’t just used to build muscle tissue, but is required for the synthesis and maintenance of almost every type of cell in our bodies. Protein is essential for our survival. My general recommendation for a bare minimum daily protein intake would be 0.8g of protein per kg of bodyweight for a sedentary adult.
