So i went to my local GNC store today and picked up some 100% whey protein. Is this stuff any good? Also what are the MAJOR benefits from it in the long run?
YngHungSFSD saidThe benefits of a good whey protein mixture cannot be understated. This is the best supplement on the market today. Yes it does have anti-carcinogenic properties, as well as numerous other ones.
The very best protein supplement on the market right now is the one by Optimum Nutrition Pro Blend. It contains a multi-protein blend of whey protein isolates, whey protein concentrate, casein, egg albumen. This gives you the best of all the proteins in terms of timing, whey is a fast acting, casein is an intermediate (4hr) and the egg protein is a longer acting protein from 6 to 8 hours. It also has a great amino acid profile combining BCAA's and Glutamine. Also as far as I am concerned the taste beats anything else I have tried. Its also not loaded with carbs.
Whey protein definitely helps to increase lean muscle mass. It is useful for fat loss, and appetite control. Brain function relies on appropriate protein. It enhances immune function by increasing important glutathione levels. Whey protein has been researched in prevention and life extension studies for such things as cancer, AIDS and other degenerative diseases. It may help T-cell activity and decrease wasting tissues during illness and therefore increase well-being and the speed of overall recovery.
Whey protein is now the most biologically available protein on the market which is why athletes reach for it as their first choice. This means that whey protein is the most easily absorbed, easy to utilize protein, with the most protein per serving.
