Lean Protein Powder
Lean protein powder is formulated for those who want to build or maintain lean muscle growth without the bulk of weight gain.
Whey protein is probably one of the best know supplements used by body builders today. It is a complete protein meaning it contains all essential amino acids, and is easier to digest.
Whey protein is low in fat and carbs but rich in a variety of healthy and muscle boosting nutrients such as branched chain amino acids (BCAA), Leucine, non/semi essential amino acids, and dietary protein in general. Furthermore, the rapid digestion of whey protein makes it an ideal protein source for bodybuilders and athletes needing a quick hit of protein. These make whey an effective agent in increasing strength, increasing lean muscle, and reducing fat.
There are several reasons why protein is good for weight loss. First of all, gram for gram protein yields the least energy compared to carbohydrates and fat. Secondly, protein intakes cause feelings of satiety (fullness), so that you are less likely to over eat while dieting. Thirdly, high quality proteins, such as whey, are better able to increase energy use. Finally, high protein intake during periods of weight helps to prevent muscle loss.
Protein is essential for muscle growth and repair. Although weight training is effective in promoting muscle gain, the gains will not be possible without adequate food and protein input. Whey protein is rapidly digested, which stimulates high levels of muscle protein synthesis, and prevents protein degradation.
