- Whey Protein a by-product of cheese manufacturing: supports protein synthesis and muscle development.
- Whey products can vary in the amount lactose, minerals, fat and proteins (including lactoferrin, beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, glycomacropeptide, and immunoglobulins).
- Whey is a popular dietary protein supplement because it contains a full spectrum of essential amino acids and high concentration of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA).
- Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins that are essential to human metabolism, growth and development.
- BCAAs-leucine, isoleucine, and valine are needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue, preserving muscle stores of glycogen (a storage form of carbohydrate) and helping to prevent muscle protein breakdown during exercise.
- BCAA are readily oxidized as an energy source during stress.
