In the modern era Creatine and whey have become the wonder sports and health supplements. Even the IOA and WADA have endorsed as safe and good for health. It is derived from Milk. Normally we get mammal animal milk not human. But the efficiency is as good as human milk.
Milk is made of two proteins, casein and whey. Whey protein can be separated from the casein in milk or formed as a by-product of cheese making. Whey protein is considered a complete protein and contains all 9 essential amino acids and is low in lactose content. Whey protein was first used as a supplement for athletes trying to maintain and grow muscle mass. To this day it is the most widely used protein supplement for health and fitness. Here are some of the reasons prove that it is so effective:
- The amino acid profile of whey protein is almost identical to that of skeletal muscle making it an ideal protein source for the human body.
- Whey protein helps stimulate muscle protein synthesis after exercise to reduce muscle damage and breakdown by.
- Providing a high concentration of readily usable branch chain amino acids.
- Supplying a source of glutamine which has been shown to limit muscle breakdown and decline in immune function.
- Supporting a positive nitrogen balance which promotes muscle growth while limiting damage.
- Whey protein contributes to greater muscle endurance, preventing muscle fatigue during longer and more intense workouts.
- Whey protein is easily digested and readily usable by the human body.
Whey protein is traditionally used to promote muscle growth, but as new scientific studies are conducted, whey is being used in many other applications. Some of these include: cancer treatment, infant health, wound healing and the elderly. Practically everyone can be benefited in some way from whey protein supplementation.
Here are some of the benefits that have recently been discovered:
1 Biologically active peptides
2 Improves bone repair
3 Lowers blood pressure
4 Supports a lean body, preserving muscle and promoting fat loss
5 Supports immune function
6 Satiating effect
7 Increases serotonin levels, mood modulation
8 Lowers cancer tumor growth
9 Helps with wound healing
10 Delays Sarcopenia
Whey protein supplementation along with resistance exercise can help improve muscle protein synthesis and promote the growth of lean tissue mass.
Possible side effects
Some people who are allergic to milk may be specifically allergic to whey. In moderate doses whey protein doesn’t generally cause any adverse effects. However, consuming severely high doses can cause: Stomach pains, Cramps, Reduced appetite, Nausea, Headache and Fatigue.
The whey is avoidable as WP [Whey powder] WPC [Whey Protein Concentrate] & WPI [Whey protein isolate] The whey is available in different concentrates, as 35%, 60% and 90%. More concentration of the whey more is the price. One should be careful in buying the perfect WHEY only from a reliable source and company. Be careful from duplicate and sub standard Whey.
