Whey Protein Hydrolysate DH25 is absorbed faster than whey isolate or whey concentrate and therefore has more muscle-building potential. A good whey hydrolysate is very easily digested and gives your muscle the fastest impulse to recovery after a challenging workout.
Whomever is active in sports, knows you can't really perform on an empty stomach! Yet, at the same time sometimes we are forced to train in the (early) morning.
Since even a whey shake from a concentrate or isolate takes up to 2 hours to digest, a good alternative will be to take either leucine, BCAA or as a more cost-effective alternative, a whey hydrolysate around 45 mins before your workout!
why a protein hydrolysate?
• fast absorption
• higher insulin response for more muscle growth
• saves energy by rapid digestion
• saves energy by decreased immune response
• fully digested
what distinguishes Whey Hydrolysate DH25 from other similar supplements?
Most other protein hydrolysates have a degree of hydrolysis of DH4 up to DH12. These hydrolysates are being absorbed much slower and give rise to more allergen responses than DH25 does. Furthermore they also do not boost insulin response as much as this type of DH25, which is precisely the only moment when you want a fast insulin response.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Health benefits and dangers of intermittent fasting
Last week I explained how the celebration of carnival and the ensueing Lent with a partial fast can have mental health benefits for you.
Fasting is part of almost every single religion because famines are hard to avoid at the end of winter when food stores are at its lowest. Or in hotter climates, when there is a severe drought.
So it made sense to make peace with unavoidable famine espeically when it is short-lived.
But what if I told you that fasting could actually be healthy for you? That is, fasting for a short period of time. This practice has been adopted by an ever growing amount of people, who mostly adopt a method called intermittent fasting.
Intermittent fasting is said to lead to easier fat loss, increased stamina and vigor, improved focus at the gym and at work, and, improved immune health.
Intermittent fasting effectively mimics the eating habits of our ancestors, who did not have access to grocery stores or food around the clock. They would cycle through periods of feast and famine, and modern research shows this cycling produces a number of biochemical benefits. In short, by altering what and when you eat, you can rather dramatically alter how your body operates.
Why do we celebrate carnival?Now we are in the midst of Carnival, it made sense to me as a true Southerner to explain the phenomenon to those who don't have an idea where it is all about.
Canival is celebrated in the period preceding Lent, mostly starting on Saturday and finishing on Shrove Tuesday, which is also known as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, because it is the last day on which you can still indulge in fattening foods and alcohol.
The highlight of the carnival is the Sunday parade, for which floats are towed through the streets on which people are all dressed up, oftentimes wearing very intricate costumes. In my home region of Noord-Brabant, a lot of floats would mock local as well as national political issues.
From the anthropological point of view, carnival is a reversal ritual, in which social roles are reversed and norms about desired behavior are suspended. By wearing masks and costumes, it is much easier to make sure this happens and people also experience a heightened sense of social unity.
For those that are most actively involved in carnival, the actual season starts on November 11, the date when the council of Eleven (Elferrat) is chosen. That day is chosen not so much because it is the 'fools number' day, but because November 11 is 40 days before December 21 or midwinter.
While almost everyone knows what Carnival involves, very few actually know what Lent is. If you are among them, you are not the only one.
Lent is the short form of an old English and current Dutch word for spring and is probably also related to the word 'lengthening' (of days in spring).
For Christians, and specifically Catholics, Lent is the practice of fasting observed in the period before Easter.
Fasting is a loosely interpreted term here as it mostly doesn't involve complete abstinence from food, but instead of giving up indulgences for the period of Lent. Some give up on everything considered 'sinful' and others promise to give up one specific vice for Lent, such as alcohol, tobacco, candy, junkfood, sex or more recently also abstinence from social media like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
It is these habits that are increasingly also adopted by non-religious people, oftentimes also synchronized with friends who fast for religious reasons.
How to make a habit out of good intentions
Sometimes you stumble on articles, that are too good to pass up on. For those who have started the year with good intentions, we are sharing an article on how to make a habit out of good intentions. It's written by a guy who changed his habits after he became a father and wanted to be a good parent by setting an example.
“Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.”
You probably agree with that statement.
But, for you (and everyone else) the problem is that good habits are hard to form and bad habits are easy to keep.
It is certainly true for me. Like most of us, I meant to start exercising for about six years after I started my career.
But it never happened. I’d do it for two or three weeks here and there, but nothing that ever stuck.
Then, all of a sudden, it did.
And it did because something changed for me. I had a son that was old enough to mimic me and that I wanted to be able to keep up with for the next twenty years. That scared me straight essentially.
In a number of areas in my life, including fitness, I realized he was going to base a significant portion of his view of how to live life and what habits were important off of what he watched me do.
So I stopped acting like I was going start exercising and I actually did it.
To create my new habit, I used a combination of the techniques below. You can use them to firm up your new habit and get your good habit quotient up.
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.
