Why is protein so important?
Protein has a number of roles within the body. It's one of three major macronutrients (fat and carbohydrates being the others) and is found in each of your cells. Protein is needed for the production of enzymes and hormones as well as for building and repairing muscles and other tissues. In other words, you can't live without protein.
What is whey protein?
Whey protein is a protein made from cow's milk that is commonly taken as a dietary supplement. Whey protein contains all essential amino acids, which are needed for protein synthesis and optimal muscle growth and recovery. Whey protein is all-natural and absorbed faster by the body than other proteins, including soy and casein.
What is the difference between whey concentrates, whey isolates and whey hydrolysates?
All types of whey protein help build muscle and drive anabolic processes within the body. The main difference between the different forms of whey is purity. Whey concentrate is the least pure form of whey available, containing anywhere from 30% to 90% of available protein; it is also higher in fat and lactose than other forms. Whey isolate is whey that has been processed to lower fat and lactose content, resulting in higher purity as well as better overall absorption. Hydrolyzed whey has been predigested, eliminating virtually all fat and other secondary nutrients for the purest experience.
How does whey protein compare to casein protein?
Both whey protein and casein protein are derived from milk, but there is a dramatic difference in their absorption rate. Whey protein is a fast-digesting protein, boosting protein and amino acid levels within minutes of ingestion. This also means that it is utilized quickly by the body, leaving your body hungry for more in a short period of time. Casein protein, on the other hand, is a slow-acting protein that takes a few hours to digest. But once it does, its effects last for several hours longer than whey protein, creating a long-lasting, optimal environment for muscle synthesis.
When should I take this men's nutritional product?
You can take whey protein anytime as a supplement to your daily diet. Use it as a snack or to replace one of your meals. For optimal pre-workout and post-workout nutrition, consume Pre-Workout Training Booster Formula and Post-Workout Accelerated Recovery Formula instead.
