Do you ever wonder if you're getting enough protein? ... I mean, if you're not a bodybuilder why would you need additional protein? Well, turns out you need it more than you think you do.
If you train regularly you’ll know that protein has many benefits.
It is well known that protein helps you BUILD muscle tissue, helping you get stronger and toned with a boosted metabolism. What is less known is that protein REPAIRS muscle tissue by targeting and repairing microtears in your muscles that create soreness and fatigue.
What is Whey Protein?
Good question! Whey protein is the most common protein used in protein powders. This is because your body absorbs it very quickly and easily. Whey protein is essentially all the best parts of milk, with carbohydrates and fats removed. Allowing you to increase your protein intake of other macronutrients, which can help boost athletic performance, improve muscle tone and increase overall health.
When should I take it? The time you take your protein can affect the benefits it has on you are your body.
Before exercise: When you exercise, it is a good idea to have some protein 30 to 60 minutes before you start to create an ‘anabolic window’. This can reduce the risk of damage to your muscles as you train.
During exercise: Consuming protein during exercise will boost your energy levels and reduce exposure to muscle damage. If your muscles are receiving the benefit of ongoing repair, your ability to exercise at a higher level for longer is enhanced.
After exercise: After a workout is the most important (and commonly used) time to have protein. Your muscles will repair and recover faster, leading to less soreness and fatigue the next day.
