The Different Types of Whey Protein Supplements

Depending on your fitness goals, choosing the right type of whey protein may enhance your results, allowing you to hit milestones faster. Below we’ll outline the 3 main types of this beneficial supplement.

1. Concentrated Whey Protein – The most common type; this supplement is usually around 80% protein and also contains some healthy fats and sugars as well.
2. Isolated Whey Protein – Normally sitting at about 80%+ in terms of pure protein, Isolate Whey really tries to give you the most protein possible, at the expense of all the other compounds which are usually found in concentrated whey protein.
3. Hydrolysate Whey Protein – This type has already been partly broken down which allows for faster absorption within the body. Protein percentage can vary from product to product. Hydrolysed whey is also much easier to digest and generally has greater bio-availability in terms of which amino acids can be absorbed by the body.

What type of protein shake is best for me?

With so many different types of protein powder available online it is important to choose the supplement which fits best to your lifestyle and fitness goals:

Whey protein is a rapidly digesting dairy protein which provides quick access to amino acids. perfect for post workout shakes.

Casein is a slow digesting dairy protein which reduces muscle protein breakdown. The slow action help suppress cravings for snacks and is perfect before bed.

Plant Based Protein

These are generally more expensive due to the sheer amount of agricultural effort involved in producing enough plants to create a high purity protein powder, these are a perfect option for people who can not consume dairy due to severe allergies – or for those who choose to avoid dairy for ethical/religious reasons.

Is whey protein powder good for you?

Whey is more than just a high-quality protein source, you will also get other beneficial nutrients from it too!

Establishing a source of high quality protein is very important among both athletes and regular citizens alike. As the body ages it requires more protein to help repair and maintain the body. The amino acids which function as the building blocks of protein are also used for a wide array of bodily functions. From hormone regulation to gut health.

When should i take whey protein?

Taking Whey Protein at night

During the night your body starts to run low of glycogen and begins to use up stored amino acids. This puts your muscles into a catabolic or breakdown state. A great way to ensure your body does not run out of stored nutrients is to take a casein protein shake before bed. Casein is a special type of long-chain protein which takes roughly 8 hours or more to metabolise into its constituent amino acids, This means it is a long-release protein and great for ensuring that you have a constant supply of protein, even when you’re asleep!

Don’t worry if Protein shakes at night aren’t your thing, replacing the amino acids is simple. SAS Nutrition WPI 80 whey protein contains everything that your body needs to get your day off to a great start.
