Whey protein has become a vital part of any gym-goer’s lifestyle. The benefits of whey protein are endless, particularly post-workout when your muscles are hungry for fuel to repair and get stronger. USN makes use of the most premium quality whey protein that is high in naturally occurring amino acids and low in carbohydrates and fat.
Whey protein is a mixture of proteins isolated from whey – the liquid part of milk that separates during cheese production. When cheese is produced, the fatty cells of the milk coagulates and are separated from the cheese as a by-product. This by-product is then taken through various processes to become the powdery substance we all recognise as whey protein.
Whey protein, used in conjunction with regular exercise and a healthy, calorie-restricted diet, can greatly improve muscle or strength gains. This is due to the fact that it provides protein and amino acids—the building blocks of your muscles. It increases the release of anabolic hormones such as insulin, which also stimulates muscle growth. Whey protein is absorbed and utilised much quicker than compared to other types of protein and has been shown to be effective when consumed before, during or after a workout.
Replacing other sources of calories with whey protein, combined with weightlifting for example, can result in weight loss, while increasing lean muscle mass.
Whether you are trying to lose weight or encourage lean muscle gains, BlueLab™ 100% Whey Protein can help you to achieve your goals. A constant intake of protein can speed up your metabolism, while repairing muscle fibres for lean muscle growth.
A commonly recommended dosage is 1–2 scoops (25–50 g) per day, usually after workouts. It is recommended that you follow the serving instructions on the packaging for best results.
