Where does Whey come from ? It comes from milk. During the process of turning milk into cheese, whey protein is separated out.
Whey protein has the highest value in providing branched-chain amino acids, which result in building and retaining muscle tissue. http://www.articlesbase.com/wellness-articles/whey-protein-what-is-it-and-where-does-it-come-from-459947.html
Researchers have found that whey protein contains the perfect combination of overall amino acid makeup… and in just the right concentrations for optimal performance in the body. Both hormonal and cellular responses seem to be greatly enhanced with supplementation of whey protein, too! Not to mention the benefits whey protein has on the body’s immune system according to documented scientific research. Whey protein also plays a role as an antioxidant and helps support a health immune system. Most importantly, consistent whey protein intake coupled with exercise will result in consistent muscle building.
Whey protein is a soluble, easy to digest protein and is efficiently absorbed into the body. It is often referred to as a “fast” protein for its ability to quickly provide nourishment to muscles.
So, why do I like Whey protein….
- It’s cheap. You can get a 80 serviing bucket for about $45 – around 50 cents a serving.
- It tastes good – chocolate,vanilla,strawberry.
- It’s very quickly digested, which makes it perfect for a meal before a workout or as recovery after a workout.
- It’s a complete protein.
- No known side affects. Most of the whey protein side effects are of the ‘probable’ nature and none are scientifically proven through medical research or studies. And as these side effects are seen only when whey protein is consumed in very high quantities over time, it is best to keep your consumption to moderate levels.
So, drink you protein shake with milk, fruits, whatever your heart desires. It’s almost essential for post-workout nutrition.
