Wonders of Whey

Wonders of Whey

Whey Protein Powders are protein supplements from whey, the by Product liquid in making cheese. Milk is made of two major proteins namely casein and whey. Casein is removed in solid form and made into cheese. This leaves whey which is then run through a series of purification processes and leaves it in powder form. Whey is known to be rich in amino acids the building blocks of protein and of the muscle tissue. This is why protein is essential in the repair and growth of torn muscle fibers after an exercise or activity.

Whey Protein Powders are the most popular and the best protein supplements both for athletes and especially body builders. It has very high and rapid bio availability and digestibility. It is easily absorbed by the body thus immediate absorption of protein by the body is very much possible.

Whey proteins are very low in fat and carbohydrates and yet very rich in a wide array of health boosting nutrients like the branched chain amino acids, leucine, dietary protein and other semi-essential amino acids. Whey protein is credited for bigger and stronger muscle growth and repair compared to those with casein protein. Whey protein powder is best with the rapid and immediate protein needs for repair. During weight lifting or heavy physical activity, tears in the muscle happen. In weight lifting, muscle tearing is initiated by the excessive use of force while this is unavoidable during strenuous routines in sports. When whey powder is ingested right after the strenuous activities, protein is readily available for the muscles to repair. Raid muscle repair will not allow the muscle structure return to its original state which in some manner of speaking, adds excess fibers to the muscle thus in collective analysis makes each single fiber bigger and as a bundle making the muscle really “grow”. Normal muscle repair that usually takes two days would return the muscle fibers to their original state. This is the reason why there is great difference when allowing muscle to repair through longer versus shorter time period. This is also the principle why whey powder intake has its proper timing which is immediately before and after the muscle training making whey protein readily available to sustain and initiate any repair faster and more efficiently than taking a bigger dose three time or more a day away from the training. However, during non-training hours of the day, make sure to equally supplement your body with other types of protein so that the rest of the body has its enough supply of daily protein needs in the same way.
