Whey’s days as the most popular protein powder are numbered. Science is proving that protein blends are more effective for muscle building.
Whey Protein: It is the fastest digesting protein and often taken post-workout to support recovery. Because if its speed, it supports protein synthesis for a short time, which is why it may not be the optimal protein.
Casein Protein: Casein is known as the ideal protein to take before bed. This is because it digest slowly and provides a steady stream of aminos to support recovery and growth for anywhere between five and seven hours.
Soy Protein: Soy has gotten a bad rap as an estrogen booster due to inconclusive studies. In reality, soy has the full range of aminos to build muscle and deliver them with a speed in between whey and casein.
