The Best Protein Powder For Building Muscle

February 22, 2012

Today we can find many different protein shakes, powders and bars all over the place. The problem is that many of us lack the knowledge to choose the best one. Luckly your in the right place and I will teach you how to choose the best protein shake thats healthy but also good for your muslces.

First of there is no best protein powder for building muscle. In order to understand and learn about protein you must first master the basics. There are 4 types of protein powders.

whey protein
soy protein
egg protein
casein protein

whey protein – Fast absorbing protein to support lean muscle.

Soy protein – Low fat, low cholesterol, good for vegeterians.

Egg protein – High lactose free protein, good for lean physique.

Casein protein – Slow digestive protein.

Again whats the best protein powder for building muscle, it would be whey protein and egg protein. The reason behind that is the goal is to build muscle and whey and egg protein are designed to do that. Now if the goal was to tone up soy protein would be the better choice. Now when do I use casein protein and is it one of the best protein powder for building muscle? Casein protein is a slow digestive protein which means it lasts longer in your body. It is ideal to take it before bed. If you work out late at nights this might be a good protein choice in order to supply the muscles with constant fuel.

Things to avoid when buying protein

It is recommended to look for protein that says whey protein isolate as one of the primary ingredients. This is necessary as some companies add in fillers that dont do jack for the body, hence why you want to avoid them.

Look at how much suger and carbs the protein shake includes. Suger is added for taste but too much of it is not good. Same with carbs too much of it and you mid section is gonna get big. Any protein that has over 15 grams of carbs is a no no.

Creatine, creatine should also raise a red flag. What it basically does is it fills your muscles up with water making them look bigger but not stronger. Some protein shakes include creatine in them and thats fine, just make sure its not alot.

Okay so thats the basics of protein, you can also look into muscle gainers if you would like to put on some pounds to get bigger. As always stay strong and keep this post in mind while choosing a protein shake. Good luck!
