As you know, not all proteins are created equal.
Each protein powder has a different amino-acid profile and rate of digestion, which is WHY it’s a good idea to get in a range of different proteins (whether wholefood or supplemental). By doing so, you will make sure that your body has all the aminos at all the right times to maximize results!
Here’s a breakdown on what type of protein you should look for when…
Choose casein whey when… you need a slow-digesting protein. casein forms a gel in the stomach, slowly releasing it’s aminos over a long period. Take it right before bed, with your post workout whey shake or as a meal replacement when ti’s going to be a while until your next whole food meal.
Choose whey when… you need a fast-digesting protein. Whey is one of the best sources of protein for building muscle. It’s quickly absorbed by the body, so it’s most effective before and after workouts and at times, like first thing in the morning, when you’ve gone many hours with eating and you need to “break the fast” (hence the word breakfast!).
Now that you know the difference, you can see why whey protein is used in supplements like the P90X Results & Recovery Formula!
Time to pick your protein and to GET RESULTS!
