What Your Trying to Find on this Page


Protein supplements have BCAA's (branched chain amino acids) in them that are NOT naturally occurring in the body.  BCAA's play a huge role in muscle synthesis and recovery.  Supplementing with protein is key if you are not eating enough of it within your normal diet.

Whey protein isolates and hydrolyzed proteins are the most common forms of protein supplementation and are usually found as a protein powder to make protein shakes.  The reason manufacturers make protein in an isolate or hydrolyzed form is because it absorbs faster. There are also slower digesting proteins made to have a longer lasting effect on your body.  The most common form of this protein is called casein protein.  A lot of people take this form before bed or during down times throughout the day to maintain consistent protein consumption daily.

Protein Regimen

   Overall it is recommended that you consume the equivalent in grams of protein of your body weight or twice that!  
For example:  If you weigh 150lbs you should eat 150g to 300g of protein daily!
 Keep in mind that this is optimal and completely healthy even to people who don't workout!
You might want to watch your fiber intake as well though considering protein supplements can back you up pretty badly if you aren't eating a healthy diet rich in fiber!
