The Information You Must Know About Protein Water Supplements

Think about the ripped athletes and bodybuilders that you see on television.  How do you think they got their bodies so perfectly sculpted?  Obviously, part of it is dedication to exercise and a healthy diet.  However, another major aspect of their training is the consumption of whey protein water.  After a solid workout, your body needs to refuel and repair the muscle tissue that has been broken down. Whey protein water provides the essential amino acids needed to repair and strengthen your body.  Try it for yourself.  Watch as your workouts become more effective and your results improve.

Problem with Protein Water Supplements is that they usually don’t live up to expectations and don’t mix well unless put through a blender. They usually always end up thick, lumpy and too sweet. They contain too much protein for your body to use and have sugars and other bad chemicals in them! Enough is enough! I have used Protein Water Supplements personally for years and when starting my nutritional supplement company decided to investigate the science behind protein and how to make a great protein supplement. Now read what I learned…

The Science

The human body can only process up to 30 grams of protein from Whey in any one drink. Any excess protein consumed from a whey supplement is usually oxidised for energy and unless you are working out very hardcore it will more than likely end up around your waist line. Now protein does not convert to fat but some amino acids when oxidised convert into a glucose state and this is what causes the problem…it will make you put on water and fat weight as well as muscle! What use is muscle when it’s covered in fat?

Also a lot of protein water brands contain little or no low GI carbohydrates, vitamins or minerals! This is bad news as the protein in them will not be used efficiently by your body. The main function of a protein supplement is to get your body to process the protein quickly and effectively to build and develop muscle. The trick needed for your body to this is simple, trick it into thinking it has consumed a high quality nutritional meal…for this you need a protein supplement that contains low GI carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.

The Taste

Most protein water brands contain aspartame, sugars and other non beneficial ingredients to promote flavour…this just does not work! For a start these substances are not good for your body and also have a negative effect on users who will end up gaining body fat or water weight because of these ingredients. They also make the taste too artificial and sweet which ruins the taste!

Three flavourings rule the protein world however… Orange Guava Flavor, Melon Cucumber Flavor and Lemon Coconut Flavor Why? Because they can be naturally derived and mix well with milk. Avoid all other flavours. Orange Guava Flavor, Melon Cucumber Flavor and Lemon Coconut Flavor flavourings are usually always naturally derived and good for you as well as being pleasant to taste if they are not too sweet!

Just remember the points above when buying protein water and get the best from it! Get the body you deserve
