Protein

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

 

Protein supplements are available in a variety of sources and formulations. They can be used to aid individuals who train regularly and struggle to achieve an adequate intake of protein with food alone. Whether it's bodybuilding, fitness, CrossFit, power lifting, martial arts or a vegan/vegetarian diet, your body may need a little extra protein. This essential macronutrient can help you meet your daily protein needs, build muscle, improve metabolism, and aid weight loss.

There are numerous types of protein supplements out there. One of the most popular protein powders is Whey Protein. It is quickly digested and provides a rapid rise in amino acids leading to increased strength and muscle mass. Plus, it promotes fat loss and reduces appetite.

A great alternative to Whey Protein is Casein. To help you grow and maintain muscle between meals and even during sleep, the Casein supplements are loaded with slow-releasing protein. Casein can aid recovery, reduce muscle protein breakdown, and promote fat loss.

When it comes to bulking up and gaining mass, there are Weight Gainers, also known as Mass Gainer Proteins. Whether you are underweight or want to build big muscle fast, the weight gain supplements are the perfect solution. They mass-gainers work only if sufficient calories are consumed in your diet. They should not be consumed by themselves.

Made from different single protein sources (e.g., whey protein, casein protein, egg white protein), there are also Protein Blends delivering a comprehensive muscle-building formula. To help your body grow, maintain, and repair muscle, they provide fast-acting and slow-release proteins and enable you to maximize gains by consuming various sources of protein in one go.

 

WHY DO YOU NEED PROTEIN?

 

An important part of your diet, protein is key to building and maintaining all types of body tissue, including muscle. It helps to produce hormones and enzymes, boost energy, fight the ageing process and enhance muscle recovery. Protein supplements are beneficial for maintaining a healthy weight, reduce blood pressure and total cholesterol. As well as contributing to muscle growth, protein may speed up recovery from muscle soreness after training sessions.
