The Best Protein Powder
Rate the topic:( Rating:

What is the best protein powder to buy? I get this question all the time,
and really, there is no best protein - many are very good for different
reasons! In my opinion, it is futile and possibly detrimental to stick to only one brand for the following reasons:

a) I always recommend that you cycle your supplements so that your body does not
get used to them thereby decreasing their effect,

b) for variety sakes alone, it breaks the
monotony and allows you to try different brands,

c) to take advantage of
the unique qualities offered by various brands, and

d) it is a good idea to switch the powders you use on a frequent basis to not develop
any food intolerances or even worse allergies (I have an article coming out on this
subject in the near future.) A blend that combines various protein sources (i.e.
casein, egg, whey, and even beef if you can find it) is your best bet. I highly
recommend the following: MD+ Myosin Protein Complex, Beverly International
Muscle Provider, Biotest Low-Carb GROW!, and Dorian Yates Approved ProPeptide.

High-quality whey protein powders are excellent choices for post-
workout nutrition since they get into your system fast to feed those
depleted muscles. Casein, on the other hand, is a slow releasing protein
as it recurdles into a solid in your gut prolonging digestion - this would be an ideal
choice prior to your workouts or before going to bed.

Anyhow, as far as whey powders are concerned, amino acid complex
profile determines quality. I have in my possession a list of protein
powders that were analyzed for quality by an independent laboratory,
but since I don`t want any of these companies breathing down my neck, I
will only divulge that information to my clients. Remember one thing, you
get what you pay for! Keep that in mind. Also, some people are quite
sensitive to aspartame and lactose so you will have to find free versions
of those. Taste will ultimately determine whether you purchase that
powder again. Write in with some of your feedback on these products -
I`d love to hear your comments.
