Whey Protein Facts

You may have heard that whey protein is the best form of protein available to us. Well, you’ve heard right. Whey protein is a super source of protein for athletes, bodybuilders, those looking to lose weight, and people with a whole array of medical conditions.

Today I’m going to list some of the whey protein facts. Facts that make whey protein the best source of protein. The fact is that whey protein is a superfood and almost anyone can benefit from consuming it. Here’s the facts about whey protein…

Whey Protein Facts:

  1. Whey protein is the best source of amino acids available. It has a complete amino acid profile, no other protein source contains this. Amino acids are not only vital for many body functions, they are the building blocks of protein and are essential to muscle growth and recovery. Without adequate amino acids in the diet performance and muscle growth will be hampered.
  2. Whey protein is absorbed faster than any other protein source. This makes it ideal for drinking after workouts, and first thing in the morning when the body needs nutrients and aminos as quick as possible.
  3. Whey protein is actually a by product of cheese. It’s what’s left over in the cheese making process. In the old times, whey protein used to be thrown away, being dumped in rivers close to the cheese factories.
  4. Whey protein isolate (the most purest form of protein) contains the highest biological value of any protein source. Biological value (BV) is a measure of how quickly and efficiently the body can use a protein source. The higher the better. Eggs have a BV of around 100, whey protein isolate can be up to 150!
  5. Whey protein can help with type II diabetes. For people with type 2 diabetes, adding whey to high-carbohydrate meals stimulates insulin release and reduces spikes in blood glucose levels after meals.
  6. Whey protein can help you lose weight! Protein takes more energy for the body to process than carbs and fats. This means more calories are need to process it, and more calories are burned. This leads to a faster metabolism and faster weight loss.
  7. Good whey protein supplements are also high in Glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, and is responsible for muscle repair and regrowth as well as being the primary fuel for the immune system.
  8. Some studies have shown that whey protein can help increase memory power in stressful situations.
  9. Whey protein supplements are also sold as “tasteless”. These tasteless forms of whey protein can be mixed with just about any recipe to add extra protein without effecting taste.
  10. Whey protein isolate is practically fat free. It’s also lactose free. Whey protein isolate is filtered and can be almost 95% pure protein!
  11. Whey protein is now the most common ingredient in weight loss drinks, meal replacements and products.

    Anita, I am trying to be nice here, but absolutely nothing you said in your comment was correct or even made sense.

    You may want to start reading from some different reliable sources (I would recommend published scientific journals).

    Words of advice: 1.)Really look into the so called healthfulness of soy and see if you still want to consume it.

    2.)Learn to spell.

    3.)Realize that protein powder is not medicine or a cure for any disease.

    4.)”100% pure and 95% digestible”…so what happens to the other 5%?

    5.) Please don’t write about things you do not have a clue about because other clueless people may follow what you say and then recommend it to someone else. There is so much misinformation on the internet and it really is a vicious cycle.

    Alfredo! I’d hate to come across you when you aren’t being nice!!! Anita may have been inaccurate about things but there must be a better way to help her understand/learn that soya isn’t the best thing to consume? Take a good look at yourself and learn to be a nicer person and impart your oh so knowledgeable information in a better manner! :) )

    Anita, Alfredo is absolutely correct, first you should know what you are talking about, there is no way soy protein is better than whey protein, and if it is then those people who are using whey protein and are getting good results are morons……so don’t just post something you don’t know about unless you realise that many people by just reading your comment might stop using whey protein for soy protein and who the hell told you that soy protein helps in arthritis. I hope you are not a doctor but if you are, you might wanna throw your medical license in the trash.

    Ok, ok relax all you’s guys. The fact is I have been taking Pure Protein brand, 100% Whey (The Frosty Chocolate kind) and I feel freaking amazing! Honestly, I hate soy products for so many reasons, mainly they make me moody. See, Soy has relatively high levels of Estrogen in it which can disturb the hormonal balance of men as well as women. It can make women moody and men aggressive. There was a Scientific study done about it. Also by-products of Soy can be dangerous. The only healthy form of soy is Edamame beans (the purest form of soy), but even they contain high levels of carcinogenic preservatives.

    Whey protein is by far the best. I take it myself, and with me being 16 I already have a bench of 250. I weigh 170. The soy protein is worthless compared to whey.
