Whey Protein 101

Whey Protein is a very healthy and beneficial protein supplement.  Whey is a dairy based product that is very high in Branched Chained Amino Acids especially Leucine, which has been shown to be a stimulator of muscle protein synthesis.  As an athlete, Whey supplement is very good for building lean muscle and fat lose.  There are three types of Whey Protein; Concentrate, Isolate, and Hydrolysate. Concentrate is 80% and lower protein.  Isolate is 90% protein.  Hydrolysate or more commonly know as hydrolyzed whey, is 95% protein and has been pre-digested so that it is absorbed faster.  Which one is right for you?  Depends on the goal and how much you want to spend.  Typically the concentrate and isolate will be the best "bang for your buck."
