Terms like muscles and protein are often used interchangeably by gym goers. In short, adequate protein is essential or muscle growth. Protein alone doesn’t provide enough results in muscle growth, until and unless combined with a proper weight training schedule. Whey protein has gained its popularity amongst sports nutrition supplements lately after research has found its fascinating benefits on muscle development. Hence, designed especially for athletes and body builders.20% of cow’s milk comprises whey. Whey is a by-product of cheese and curd manufacturing. Once milk is coagulated, it separates into curds and whey. Whey has a high biological value & consists essential amino acids. Whey protein can be classified as following:
Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC)
80% protein concentration by filtration method.
This can be increased to 90% by micro filtration.
Includes fat and carbohydrates (in the form of lactose).
Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)
Free of water and lactose and cholesterol.
Consists 95% protein concentration.
Preferred for lactose intolerant people
Whey Protein Hydrolysates (WPH)
partially pre-digested whey with enzymes. This makes it to be absorbed at a high speed, with a high bio-availability.
Preferred for those with absorption problems as this form is easily absorbed.
Other benefits of whey protein include:-
Whey protein if consumed with proper exercise regime and Vitamin D, results in fat free muscle mass.
Whey protein stimulates muscle protein synthesis and generate higher gains.
Research shows increased lean body mass and strength when compared whey protein with carbohydrates, while on resistance training for 5 years.
Dose of 1.5 gm per kg body weight of whey protein concentrate and isolate showed increase in lean mass and strength.
Studies have proved consumption of 20g whey protein every 3 hours has increased muscle protein synthesis.
Preferred for those with absorption problems as this form is easy to be absorbed.
For intense workout, 1.2-1.5 g per kg per day is suggested to stimulate lean muscle mass growth.
Consult your dietitian/ certified gym trainer prior to confirm whey protein dose along with diet and exercise regimen.
