Protein is made up of 22 amino acids which are known as the building blocks of life. It is these building blocks from which protein molecules are created. There are two main types of amino acids, essential and non-essential. There are nine essential amino acids that cannot be manufactured by the human body so they must be obtained from the foods that you consume.
This can also be broken down as conditional amino acids. It has been proven that these amino acids play a major role in both performance and recovery.Whey is known as the anabolic protein since it increases protein synthesis with a greater efficiency than other sources. There are three different types of whey proteins, whey concentrate, whey isolate, and whey hydro slate. Concentrate is between 50-80% proteins. The isolated version separates whey from lactose, ash, fats and carbs so that you receive 90-97% protein. The best types are either ion exchange or cross flow micro filtered whey isolate. The isolate is the most expensive, but you are getting more protein per gram of powder.
