    I need someone to tell me the best Whey Protein to take for muscle building, whether that being Whey Isolate or whatever other kind there is. And if someone could explain the differences and benefits and negatives of each, that would be greatly appreciated! icon_smile.gif

    Generally speaking whey isolate is easier to absorb but is substantially more expensive. Commonly accepted beliefs, however, show that a blend works just as well and is substantially cheaper.

    Most people prefer Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey, its a blend and you get isolates, concentrates, and some other "proprietary" blend.

    I go with a blend of a whey protein isolate and monster milk. I find it tastes great, doesn't leave me bloated, I don't get "tired" of it, it satiates hunger cravings, and gets me the protein I need. In the past, I found it incredibly hard - as a vegetarian - to put on muscle, but by going to the gym and supplementing regularly throughout the day (especially within an hour of the gym), I've noticed a lot of gains and I am impressed! Long way to go mind you.

    I like te monster milk because of the lower saturated fat than regular muscle milk. The protein isolate has no carbs, so it helps "cut" the carbs a little bit more - but I use these shakes more as regular mini-meal replacements rather than strictly a protein substitute, so it's okay that I get some carbs and fats from the monster milk.

    As you know, whey is made from milk; therefore. lactose is present. If you are lactose intolerant this can cause a problem. Whey isolate has much less lactose than whey concentrate. The isolate is recommended for lactose intolerant individuals. Isolate usually contains 90 to 98% protein while concentrate has 70 to 85% protein and more fat. Isolate is more expensive than concentrate.
    I don't believe that isolate is worth the extra bucks unless you are lactose intolerant.
    Most of the protein powders are whey concentrate with a little isolate added.
    Whey is a good protein supplement to take. Whey is a complete protein that contains all the essential amino acids. Whey is also a rich source of branch chain amino acids.

    Hello Friends........

    Whey protein is a mixture of globular proteins isolated from whey,the liquid material created as a by-product of cheese production.Some preclinical studies in rodents have suggested that whey protein may possess anti inflammatory or anti-cancer properties; however, human data are lacking.
