Protein helps a lot in the growth of our body.
Many people are unable to get the right amount of protein intake according to their needs from the diet, then they add protein supplements for this.
Protein supplements are the world’s most commonly used body building and muscle building supplements. The reason is that it is very effective and due to its many flavors, it is also good in taste. But this does not mean that you should stop taking protein from the food and stay dependent on the supplement only. Rather, you can replace any of your miles with whey protein.Now sometimes you will have a question that how to select the right protein powder? So today I am going to tell you 5 important things about protein, which you need to know before buying protein.
1. There are 3 types of protein supplements
Whey protein comes in the form of powder, so the protein is divided into these parts based on its purity or on the basis of the protein content in it.
Protein content varies from 25% to 80%. It is also called WPC or WPC80. Most of these proteins are available in the market and most of them are used.
The pure form of protein is called isolate. It contains 90-95% of the protein content. Isolates cost more than the protein concentration. It also has very low carb content.
It is the most expensive form of Whey protein. Which contains 100% protein content. It is used for muscle building, lean mass gainings.
2. Both protein and casein are different
Whey protein is a high quality ‘complete protein’ made from milk. It contains a lot of amino acids, Branched Amino Acids, Glutamins, Lusins etc.
And there, casein protein is also made from milk. It is a slow digesting protein, it digests in 7-8 hours. It can be taken 30 minutes before bedtime, because when your body is in slipping mode, casein makes amino acids in your body and your body remains in anabolic, not in catabolic and it develops your muscles.
3. Mass gainers contain protein but are different from ‘protein supplements’
Mass gainer is a type of mixer that when consumed you get calories from protein, carbohydrates, sugar and fat, while calories in protein come only from ‘protein’.
Simply put, protein increases your muscles due to fewer calories, while mass gainer (due to its high calories) makes you very heavy. A good protein essentially consists of 1-5 Gm carbs, fat and 22-30 Gm protein.
4. Evaluate Office and Workout as well
You will not get transformed by constantly taking protein supplements with your eyes closed. You will also need a workout for this. For this it is important that you also pay attention to the time you sit at your office and your desk, how much time you are spending there or also see how much time you are training yourself.
Protein will only make more impact when you workout, so keep in mind that whenever you buy protein supplements, first manage your time, otherwise your money is going to go waste.
5. Supplements can be thrown
In today’s time, all companies are selling their products through advertising. The same is true in the supplement market. Many companies write false claims and promises on a jar of protein and after reading it you become happy and buy protein.
Most claims are false. For a few years, such supplements have been in the Indian market. So whenever you buy protein, buy it from an Authorized Store and also check it thoroughly first.
So now you must have understood what should be kept in mind before taking protein. For this, do not forget to take the advice of an experienced person or even your trainer.
