Whey protein is the most efficient, the most popular and therefore the most widely used protein supplement available. To understand why you will first have to understand what proteins do for our body. Protein is a very important nutrient - it is essential for our health. Besides water, protein is the most common organic substance in the human body. Proteins are the building blocks of our body: our hair, skin, muscles, connective tissues and so on. It repairs, maintains and builds our muscles and connective tissues. In short: without protein, we would not be able to function. In general, we get protein from our food. Protein can be found (in different amounts) in meat, fish, chicken, dairy, legumes, beans and some fruits and vegetables. This means that we consume protein daily from different sources. The question is, however, whether we consume enough protein and whether we pay attention to where these proteins come from.
If you do a lot of sport, have an active job or lead a lifestyle in which you are physically occupied for most of the day, the body's protein requirement increases. The muscles become more stressed or even overburdened. In order to recover, become stronger or grow, the muscles require more protein than when they are at rest. So your protein requirement increases and you will have to eat more to get enough protein. If you are consciously training to become faster or stronger, to develop muscle mass or to maintain muscle mass then you have to adjust your protein intake accordingly. An easy way to do that is with whey protein. Through a protein shake, mixing whey protein into your breakfast or as a tasty snack you make sure you get enough protein for your lifestyle and training goals.
WHAT EXACTLY IS WHEY PROTEIN?
Whey protein powder is made from milk. At the base is the liquid left over from cheese production. This liquid is also called liquid whey. This liquid is filtered, heated and dried until finally a nice powder remains. Many producers add other ingredients to this, which does not always benefit the protein shake or your health, but we will come back to that later.
THE BENEFITS OF WHEY PROTEIN
Why specific whey protein is so popular among athletes lies mainly in the fact that the protein content of whey is very high, about 80% or more. In addition, it is very easily absorbed by the body. After taking a whey protein shake, the first proteins will enter the bloodstream after about 20 minutes. Your muscles will quickly be supplied with the necessary nutrients. Especially after a heavy workout it can be very convenient to take a whey shake. Whey also makes you feel full for longer and it helps to stabilize your energy and focus by balancing your blood sugar level. That means more satiation - and reduced carbohydrate requirements! In addition to making you feel good and able to function at your best, proteins can also help you lose weight while preserving muscle tissue. Because the more muscle mass your body has, the more efficient it becomes in burning fat. Getting enough protein is a problem that many people who exercise regularly or often experience. Whey protein is a good way to quickly get enough protein in your system. Whey is well and easily absorbed by the muscles and stimulates muscle building, muscle maintenance and muscle recovery.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT PROTEIN POWDER
There are many different whey protein powders on the market. Pay attention to which one you take because in many cases the cheapest are certainly not the best. Take a good look at the list of ingredients and consider if you are dealing with a reliable manufacturer. The best quality proteins are rich in nutrients and contain no harmful ingredients such as refined sugars and artificial additives (e.g. aspartame, sorbitol, saccharin), soy, wheat gluten, lecithin, preservatives and inferior proteins.
