Bodybuilding is not an easy task. You can work out as much as you can but sometimes it does not suffice. This is because your body needs an ample amount of protein for your muscles to recover faster. Body builders often take a lot of whey protein products to help them in building bigger and stronger muscles. There are so many whey protein products out there and so far, here are ones that me and my co-body builders have tried.
Now Foods Whey Protein Isolate
This whey protein product is all natural. It is pure CFM WPI making it the highest quality that you can have from a whey protein product. It has no artificial colours, flavours and mixes up a bit thicker.
Syntha-6 Ultra-Premium Protein Powder
This is one whey protein product that has definitely been patronized by many body builders like me. You can drink it before or after a workout or any time of the day. It is perfect for muscle growth and enhancement and weight management as well. It is the best tasting whey protein for me.
ISS Research Complete Whey Power
This whey protein product has a variety of flavours. The quality is really top notch that is why it is quite more expensive than other whey protein products. But I can guarantee you that you will get your money’s worth because it is a mixture of WPI and WCI.
Optimum’s Gold Standard 100% Whey
If you want a protein overload, then this will surely be the best product for you. An ounce of this whey protein has already around 24 grams of protein. The whole product is around 79% protein.
Those are four of the best whey protein that we’ve tried so far. If you want to shop for yourself, be mindful of some certain guidelines. Check if the whey protein you want to buy is easy to mix and does not create clumps or foams. Other people would not mind the taste but some people would. So before buying anything, ask for any flavours.
There are many whey protein supplements on the market that have flavours like vanilla and chocolate. Also be mindful of the texture. Some people, like me, will want a shake-like texture. Some body builders prefer a juice-like texture since it is easier to consume. Check, as well, the protein content of the product. Some whey protein products are really high in protein while some contain just enough protein for muscle recovery.
The last thing, but might be the most important thing, you need to check on is the price of the product. Some are very expensive while some are fairly affordable. With all this knowledge at hand, it will be easier for you to assess what whey protein is best for your body building needs.
Note, however, that whey protein is not meant to replace the natural protein you can get from food. It is merely a supplement. This should not be your only source of protein. Still include protein rich food in your diet like seafood, eggs, beans, soy and milk.
