Whey Protein

Protein is one of the 3 'marco' nutrients, the other three being fat and carbohydrates, that are essential to the body. Proteins' main contribution is to provide the building blocks to tissues, especially muscle tissue, and therefore protein helps support muscle repair and recovery. 

Whey Protein comes from dairy milk whey, a by-protein of the separation of curd from milk and comes in either a concentrate or isolate form. In general isolate is processed further than concentrate, to purify the protein, and in doing so reducing the carb and fat content, and some believe it is easier digestible for those with lactose intolerances. 

People often supplement with whey protein to support exercise recovery, as its ability to support muscle recovery make it ideal for both strength and power athletes, and endurance athletes. Also, people looking to reshape their body’s appearance, whey protein can support weight management, as it can help growth muscle, which in turn assist in burning fat. Protein is also very satiable, allowing the body feel fuller for longer, thus assists appetite control.
