Whey Protein benefits
There are several reasons that make whey protein shakes widely popular among sportsmen from all fields of sports. Some of these include:
- A complete amino acid profile. Proteins are absolutely essential for muscle growth and are the building blocks of muscle. In the body there are 20 amino acids present that combine to make proteins. Nine of these amino acids are “essential” meaning they cannot be synthesized by the body and therefore must come from diet or supplementation. Whey protein contains all essential amino acids in adequate amounts making it one of the best options for anyone looking to increase their daily protein intake.
- High bioavailability. Whey protein is superior to other protein types whereby it is rapidly broken down by the body, making it a great protein source during periods where the body is most eager for nutrients. Due to its high absorption rate, it's best taken after intense workouts.
- Delicious flavours. Thanks to the most advanced and modern technology, consuming our whey protein products has never been easier whereby we now offer over 51 mouth-watering flavours, so that you can enjoy your protein shake and take your nutrition to a higher level.
How much protein should I take?
The amount of protein you should be taking will depend on a number of factors such as size, age and how active you are. If you're an athlete or are looking to bulk up then you should be taking more protein than the average person. As a rule of thumb you should be taking in between 1.2 and 1.7 grams of protein each day, for each kilogram of body weight. Remember that this is a rule of thumb and will not be the same for all people.
