WHAT IS IT?
Whey protein is a mixture of proteins isolated from whey. Whey is the liquid part of milk that separates during cheese production. Milk actually contains two main types of protein… casein (80%) and whey (20%).
Whey is found in the watery portion of milk. When cheese is produced, the fatty parts of the milk coagulate and the whey is separated from it as a by-product.
(If you’ve ever opened a yogurt container to see liquid floating on top, this is whey. Cheese makers used to discard it before they discovered its commercial value.)
After being separated during cheese production, whey goes through steps to become protein. Taking whey protein is a convenient way to add 25-50 grams of protein on top of your daily intake.
HOW DOES IT WORK:
Throughout the digestion process protein is broken down by dietary enzymes known as proteases. The quicker these are broken down, the faster they can be converted into amino acids which can repair muscle tissue faster and promote quicker and natural growth. Whey will also improve your overall immune health, helping you to stay healthier, fitter and stronger for longer through training. Research also suggests that consuming extra protein before you work out is a great way of encouraging muscle development. Whey protein is quickly digested into amino acids to be used by the muscles requiring repair after work-out.
Not only does whey have protein benefits it also has some been proven to target stress, improve immunity, loose weight, reduce hunger and fight cancer.
