Whey has notoriously and stereotypically been associated with hardcore athletes and male body builders as a supplement for building muscle. The health benefits of whey protein extend far beyond muscle growth and appeal to a variety of individuals and lifestyles.
Whey protein is high-quality protein naturally found in dairy. It is a complete protein containing all nine of the essential amino acids your body needs. Whey protein is commonly deemed as the #1 protein supplement for building muscle. It has earned this title due to being one of the best sources of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which stimulate immediate muscle growth (unlike other incomplete sources of protein such as many plant-based proteins). While muscle growth is extremely important to some supplement users, whey protein also plays a vital role in other important functions of the body. Whey protein aids weight management, satiation, getting lean, muscle recovery during exercise and reducing muscle loss with aging.
The wide-ranging benefits of whey protein give the supplement a natural appeal to most individuals seeking a healthy lifestyle. Women and men, young and old, active and sedentary, alike can benefit from supplementing their diet to ensure they are consuming the USDA’s Dietary Reference Intake for protein each day to keep their bodies healthy.
