Protein is the most important for muscles, which draw from it building blocks to build stronger and stronger fibres. Protein supplementation is a very simple and convenient way to supply your body with the right amount of protein.
Protein supplements - types and specifications
A protein supplement naturally contains a good amount of protein in its composition. There are different types of protein supplements - some have less and others more protein. As a rule, however, it is a minimum of 80% protein per serving, which gives a lot of easily digestible protein. The most popular types of protein supplements include:
- Whey protein which has about 80% protein. Whey protein also contains lactose, which for some may be neutral, while for others it may be a curse. This is because lactose can be intolerated, which could result in stomach pain and indigestion. If this is the case, it is worth opting for higher end supplements, which unfortunately cost a bit more
- Whey protein isolate has about 90% protein. Here the amount of lactose is minimal, so people who have problems with its digestion will not be at risk. It is very well absorbed and contains traces of fats and carbohydrates, which is a great asset, especially on reduction. See Whey Protein - Crossthelimits
How to consume protein supplements?
Protein supplements make it very convenient to deliver the desired amount of protein to the human body. All you need to do is pour the required amount of nutrients into a shaker and add liquid. Most often water or milk is used. A few shakes are all it takes for the nutrient to dissolve and form a sort of protein shake. Many people use protein in baked goods, omelettes or oatmeal for breakfast.
