Protein is the primary nutrient group involved in repairing and building muscle tissues. It is also the only nutrient group that contains an appreciable amount of nitrogen. This is important since the body must be in a state of positive nitrogen balance in order for muscle growth to take place. On the flip side, negative nitrogen balance can cause the body to break down muscle tissue as a source of protein for other uses resulting in decreased muscle mass. While any source of protein can provide protein, whey protein has some distinct advantages.
Benefits of Whey Protein
Whey protein is a mixture of globular proteins from milk. It has a complete amino acid profile as well as other beneficial factors such as alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, lactoferrin, serum albumin, lysozyme, and immunoglobulins A, G, and M. Whey protein also tends to provide a higher concentration of essential amino acids than other protein sources. Typically about 25% of the amino acids in whey are branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are readily oxidized as an energy source during and after stress and exercise.
Whey protein is also rich in cysteine, a precursor to the vital intracellular antioxidant glutathione (GSH). GSH is depleted by oxidative stress that occurs during exercise, immune defense, and healing. In fact, some researchers think that whey protein may help play a role in promoting immune health by providing GSH precursors and increasing levels of GSH in the tissues.
What Type of Whey Protein Is Best?
The debate about “the best type” of whey protein is a topic of infinite discussion on message boards pertaining to bodybuilding. Typically, one form or another is advocated based solely upon the manufacturing method used to produce it. For instance, whey protein isolate (WPI) is often touted as being a “purer” form of whey because it typically goes through more processing steps resulting in lower carbohydrate and fat content. Whey protein concentrate (WPC) is often processed in a very similar manner to WPI, but is less processed with a slightly higher retainment of lactose.
Many clinical studies on the effects of whey protein supplementation have been conducted on the use of WPC, especially in the areas of weight management and immune health. Also, the source of whey may affect the quality and product purity of the nutrients of supplements. For example, whey protein concentrated from grass fed milk has fewer contaminants such as added hormones and other environmental toxins.
The type of whey protein chosen is a matter of personal choice but, when evaluating the quality of a whey protein product, one should carefully inspect the supplement label to determine ingredient sources, processing methods, quantity and quality of each amino acid and other nutrients.

Artificial or natural sweeteners: which one is the best choice?
For several decadese, there's a disturbing trend in which the majority of the population has gained weight as a result of overeating and/or underexercising.
Most experts agree on how a big part of the over consumption is caused by ever larger portion sizes of junkfood. Junkfood is very cheap to make, as it can be stored for such a long period of time and lacks in the most expensive macro nutrient: protein. It also has virtually zero micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals and most of all, the precious antioxidants we derive from vegetables and fruits.
An ongoing discussion is how to stimulate lower calorie intake as well as making exercise more attractive.
Do we guide the general public by offering colour codes, in which green colour signifies the 'right' choice and a red colour the 'wrong' one, whatever the guidance may be. Don't get me started either on fake margarine being promoted and real butter and coconut oil being damned as 'evil saturated fats'.
Or do we punish the industry by banning over-sized junkfood? It isn't even so long ago when the standard sized bottle of lemonade was 'only' 1 litre or less! Now 2 litres is quickly becoming the norm.
A few weeks ago the Dutch government published her decision to stimulate the choice for lower- and zero calorie drinks by lowering the taxation on mineral water as well as that of artificially sweetened soft drinks.
In the light of the upcoming 50% increase of taxation on all foods from 6% to 9% as of January 1, 2019, the majority of people was outraged!
How is it possible outright beneficial health foods such as vegetables and fruits aren't subsidized and get 0% taxation?
A lot of people stipulated how artificial sweeteners are not good for your health, while others reassuringly sussed these complaints, stating that e.g. aspartame has been researched for decades and barely any negative side-effects have been reported.
Hence why we are on a quest to find out more about low-glycemic low-caloric sweeteners. Are they good substitutes for real sugar?
The unofficial history of sports supplements in the USA - Part IIIn Part I of this series, we traced the development of how supplements were designed and marketed. Since their very conception, supplements have always provided a pseudo panacea for virtually every health-related problem. Fatigue, slow muscle growth, even impotence can supposedly be cured with natural substances attempting to simulate the effects of drugs through "natural" pathways. Although it's true that various nutrients and herbal compounds have been proven to be quite effective, there was a period circa the early 1990s when the distinction between "natural" and "chemical" became blurred.
Why should I care about meal frequency?Why should I care about eating several times a day? A straight answer is, because it works!
It works if you wish to burn fat and maintain a good muscular attractive physique when you are over 40. Back in 2009 I was pretty darn fit and strong and in the best shape of my life while eating small meals five to six times a day and working out right after work around 7pm.
Recipes with protein powder
Most of you will know how important protein is for building or maintaining lean body mass when dieting down or suffering from a chronic disease.

Put in a shaker cup, add water, shake, and you have a portable drink to revitalize your muscles and energy. Or add it to a blender with milk, fruit, greens, nut butter, or other fun ingredients and it's an anytime snack or meal replacement.
