The Three Major Varieties of Whey Protein

Posted by: PFB

Whey protein is an undisputed leader when it comes to bodybuilding supplements, used by athletes and bodybuilders around the world to work alongside a high-protein diet and a rigorous training routine. Whether taken in the form of caplets or tasty whey protein shakes, the protein helps to build muscle and speeds up recovery time, and why insufficient protein levels cause the body to cannibalise its own muscle tissue when placed under strain.

What some bodybuilders may not know, however, is that there are several kinds of whey protein, which can be classed into three main groups - whey protein blends, whey isolate and whey concentrate. Let's take a look at them.

The cheapest form of whey protein, and arguable the one which gives the most "bang for the buck"' is whey protein blends, which are generally available in the form of whey protein shakes. Unlike pure whey concentrates, which can merely add mass, whey protein blends are great for athletes seeking lean muscle building - and of course for bodybuilders.

The highest amount of protein found in the various kinds of whey proteins is to be found in whey isolate - which also corresponds to the price tag usually attached to these forms of supplement. Unless you are lucky enough to find a stockist committed to the best possible prices, of course! Containing less far than other forms of whey protein, whey isolate is often favoured by bodybuilders and athletes interested particularly in weightlifting and cutting.

The mid-priced option, whey concentrate contains less protein than whey isolate and is especially useful for weight gain, if not for cutting. It is a pretty direct route to mass gain, and should be expressly used for this purpose - just be sure that it forms part of a more rounded regime if you are seeking a more nuanced effect.

Note: Bio-Available Protein is a synergistic protein complex which is an ideal blend of ten proven and highly effective bodybuilding protein sources with added Branched Chain Amino Acids and L-Glutamine. For more info go to https://www.trulyhuge.com/bio-engineered-protein.html
