Key Benefits Of Whey Protein

Whey Protein Benefits

 

I wrote about Whey Protein in one of my older posts.  In this post I will go into more details and benefits of Whey Protein.

The first thing I would like to point out is – not all the proteins have equal benefits to our body. What proteins are made of has difference whether they do or do not work for your body, especially depending on your activities.

Whey is a truly amazing supplement, because not only has it been proven to help you build muscle, improve physical performance, sharpen your mind, enhance circulatory system function, but it also has potent anti-aging effects.

Whey has its special building blocks that our bodies need most.  Protein is one nutrient we cannot live without, because the body needs it to repair and rebuild, and researchers have been discovering that most people don’t get enough.

The scientific research on Whey started during the mid 1900′s, when researchers were experimenting with proteins from plant and animal sources.  They discovered that some proteins have all the essential amino acids to support growth and health, while other proteins didn’t.  After years of testing they determined that whey protein scored the nighest in amino acid composition and a high biological value measure ( a measure of how much protein is actually used by the body ).  As the research progressed the scientists began to focus on protein building blocks ( the individual amino acids ), testing each amino acid separately.

 

Here are some of the functions of the main key amino acids that occur in significant amounts of high-quality Whey Protein:

 

BCAA’s ( Branched – Chain – Amino Acids )

  • Increases endurance
  • Prevents Fatigue
  • Improves Mental Performance
  • Increases Energy Level

Phenylalanine

  • Maintains nervous system health
  • Relieves depression
  • Elevates Mood
  • Decreases Pain
  • Boosts Memory
  • Suppresses appetite

 

Tryptophan

  • Relieves mild to moderate depression
  • Relieves insomnia
  • Suppresses Appetite
  • Reduces overall sensation of pain

 

Arginine

  • Increases growth hormone levels
  • Protects against heart disease
  • Lowers Blood Pressure
  • Improves poor circulation
  • Aids in production of creatine ( important source of energy )

 

Glutamine

  • Boosts immune system function
  • Maintains muscle mass
  • Prevents muscle breakdown
  • Enhances glycogen storage ( a form of energy muscles use )
  • Aids recovery from exercise
  • Promotes healing

 

Proline

  • Rebuilds cartilage in bones
  • Speeds injury repair
  • Promotes tissue recovery following exercise

 

Another incredible effect that Whey Protein has on the body, is that it enhances the production of the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant – Glutathione.   It also has the highest levels of BCAA’s, which boosts immune system functioning.

The best time to consume Whey Protein is before and after your workout, this way you will get a large and quick rise in amino acids, which is important during exercise and recovery.

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
