» Editor Review:
protein is not created equal.
As proof of this, we can take
a look at whey protein, which
is the 'highest quality' protein
very important to muscle growth
and metabolic processes within
the body - in particular, the
amino acids that make up protein
are directly responsible for building
and maintaining muscle tissue.
Whey has the highest value in
amino acids", which makes
it a logical choice for any bodybuilder.
after study has shown the benefits
of whey protein on muscle growth,
and just about every bodybuilder
understands the importance of
absorption properties of whey
protein, which is a milk by-product,
make it a perfect pre- and post-workout
shake. A good post-workout drink
should definitely include both
whey protein and creatine (they don't taste too bad, either!).
of taste, my personal favourite
are berry-flavoured whey protein
shakes. Chocolate and vanilla
flavours can be a bit overwhelming.
Try the berry flavour of Dymatize
Elite Whey, or for
the ultimate protein product,
check out Optimum
100% Whey Gold Standard (recently renamed).
Those on a
budget should check out Higher
Power 100% Whey, which
is affordable yet effective. For
whey protein, buying online is
by far the cheapest option - try Bodybuilding.com.
