Whey is a complete protein derived from cow’s milk, and has all nine essential amino acids necessary for protein synthesis. Whey is fast-digesting and perfect for lean muscle building and fat loss in combination with a healthy diet and exercise. Whey protein also boosts blood flow to muscle tissue, increasing blood flow and supporting muscle growth and recovery.
For the cleanest label whey protein - we recommend you choose a grass-fed whey protein like Orgain.
There are three major types of whey protein:
Whey Protein Isolate is more protein-packed than concentrate, and has an extremely low carb and fat content.
Whey protein Concentrate goes through minimal processing. As a result, it's often much cheaper than other forms, making it a good choice for those on a budget.
Whey Protein Hydrolysate is the most highly processed of all the whey proteins, and is the quickest to absorb.
