Whey Protein Concentrate

If you want to boost your performance, whey is the way. Whey Protein is widely considered as the best source of protein for bodybuilders and athletes looking to put on more lean muscle mass. It supplies all the amino acids your body needs to build muscle, gain strength and speed up recovery. Whey comes naturally packed with branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s = leucine, isoleucine, and valine). They are the building blocks of protein and play a crucial role when you are training intensly and the recovery afterwards.

During rigorous exercise protein levels in your body drop significantly. To support the process of rebuilding muscle tissues you need to fuel up with amino acids. The fact that whey is fast ingesting makes it one of the most important post workout supplements.

 

How much whey should you take?

Your protein intake is dependent on your weight, exercise level and the goals you want to achieve. No two people are the same. Bodybuilders and high performance athletes generally need a higher protein intake. Approximately 1.5grams of protein per every kilogram of your own lean body mass is a good guideline for daily consumption. Whey should be taken in two to three serving daily. The most crucial time to take it is directly after a workout..
