Choosing A Protein Powder – What You Should Know

With so many different kinds of protein powders out there, you will have a hard time choosing the right one. Not to worry though, because we have it sorted out for you, as I pick on the finer points, so that you get what is just right for you.

The supplement companies spend a LOT of money on advertising and that’s why some of these products are very expensive because YOU have to pay for that advertising. But the most expensive may not always be the best, so I’d suggest you to avoid all those flashy labels.

Whey Protein Powder

Whey Protein Powders

This is the standard protein for some people and there is a good reason for that. There are two main kinds of whey protein , Whey protein concentrate and Whey protein isolate, the latter being better. This type of protein absorbs faster than the other proteins and that’s what makes it better. Also, it is advised that you take it right after leaving the gym.

Casein Protein

This protein has a slower absorption rate than Whey protein and its very good to take it before going to bed because it will keep your body from deteriorating.

Egg Protein

Egg Protein

This type of protein is similar to the Whey protein in many ways, but it comes from the egg (obviously) and its great if you are allergic to milk or Whey.

Protein Blends

You will see this in products such as MyoFusion, Syntha-6, Pro complex, etc. And this product is a blend of different types of protein (whey protein, casein, egg, soy, etc.) so that the protein delivers throughout a long period of time.

Gainers

These particular products I personally don’t like because it’s supposed to help you gain weight and it does but is mostly FAT. Think about it, these products are cheaper than the regular proteins and are supposed to get you big league, so why would they be cheaper? Simple, it’s filled with all sorts of crap.  I would only suggest you to use it, if you are a guy with an incredibly fast metabolism or you’re having a really hard time putting on mass. This will help you get a caloric surplus because it contains a LOT of calories.
