Protein powder is the "Go-To" for almost every almost every goal out there.
There are three main types or protein products all made from dairy; WHEY, CASEIN or a BLEND of the two.
We'll get to the blend in a second but first... the most important difference between the two of them is that Whey is fast digesting and Casein is typically a slower more drawn-out digestion process. The other key difference is in the production process where the Casein comes from dairy "curds" while the Whey comes from the primarily liquid "wheys".
It not always simple to choose a product with so many variations and types but here are some main points for you to think about:
Whey Isolate istechnically better than concentrate but it’s mostly better because of mix-ability and digestion factors. (easier to mix and quicker to digest for most). The quality of the protein and long-term benefits end up being basically identical.
If you have a choice between concentrate and isolate, and it’s pretty much the same price and taste, go for the isolate. However, don’t worry if you decide to stick with concentrate— it’s still good protein.
Lastly, there is a more and more compelling research that shows combining a fast digesting Whey Protein with one or more types of slower-digesting Casein Protein is better for muscle growth than just utilizing whey protein only.This would be that third type of protein product we mentioned. The Protein Blend. It might just make the best all-around choice.
Also, dont forget about that clinically effective dose thing we talked about.
