When it was time to write this article I had to think back about what I was asked about this week. I realized that the question I am asked the most is, “What are you drinking?”. In most cases I was drinking a whey protein shake. Why was I drinking it? Protein shakes allow me to consume high amounts of easily digestible protein to either;
- repair muscle
- sustain muscle
- or replace a meal
What is whey? Whey is a protein taken from various sources and broken down into a powder. The powder is whey’s easiest digestible and sustainable form. We want our protein to be digested quickly because after a hard workout the muscle is starving for protein to rebuild itself bigger and stronger.
Here are the benefits of Whey Protein;
- Easy absorption into blood
- Cheap source of protein
- High quality protein source
Ask me if you should be using whey protein.
