Protein is one of the main macronutrients used by the body for the build, repair and maintenance of lean tissue as well as being responsible for virtually every process that occurs within the body including metabolism and the transportation of nutrients. Anyone involved in intense exercise, wanting to build muscle or wanting to reduce body fat knows that protein is an absolute necessity.
While protein is found in a rich source of foods, a quality protein powder is a fundamental choice for anyone wanting to achieve training goals. The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for adults is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, however when exercising this amount should be doubled, with around 20% to 40% of daily calories coming from protein. Protein shakes and powders are a convenient, efficient and fast absorbing solution to help you consume the correct amount of protein and take your training and results to the next level.
