At any local supermarket and vitamin store you can find yourself surrounded by loads of supplements, such as protein, whether in shake form or powders they are everywhere, but are they right for you?
On a personal level, I am strong supporter of whey protein isolate, I have been using it for more than two months and I have seen a big difference in my overall health, energy, and I have seen a faster recovery time - I do not get as sore as I used to, the day after extraneous training.
According to wheyoflife.org,
"Why protein is an excellent protein choice for individuals of all ages. It provides a number of benefits in areas including sports nutrition, weight management, immune support, bone health, and general wellness."
Before making a protein purchase make sure you understand the two different types of protein; protein concentrate and whey protein isolate.
If you are looking to enhance and promote lean mass, whey protein isolate is your best choice, the protein is more pure, less lactose, and has fewer calories than the counterpart, but if looking to bulk up it is recommended to take concentrate protein.
Anyone can take isolate protein and is the preferred choice for those who are lactose or suffer from bloating/gas from taking dairy products.
