We all have read the nutrition labels and know how important macronutrients are to our life. After all, without carbohydrates, protein, and fats we wouldn't be able to have energy. However, there is one macronutrient that serves a greater purpose than to be used as fuel, and that is protein.

Protein is different from other macronutrients because it is composed of small chains of nitrogen. These chains are divided into even smaller chains called amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and thus your muscle. Remember that our muscles are 70% water, 20% protein, 5% fat, 5% carbs.

Because these amino acids help to build lean muscle, it is important to consume a lot of them when you are trying to get a better physique. This is why whey protein is so important. Whey protein digests within a half and hour and contains all of your essential amino acids. In addition, whey protein is very cheap and it tastes swell as well.

The best time to take whey protein is immediately post workout. When you exercise, you deplete your muscles of glycogen and break your muscle tissues down. To adapt to this stress, your body becomes more sensitive to insulin - the hormone responsible for shuffling nutrients to your muscles.

During this period after you workout, it is very important to get as many macronutrients to your muscles as possible. You really want to build up your glycogen reserves and muscles so that you can get stronger and recover faster. This means that you can hit the gym quicker and get results faster.

Whey protein is also very safe for you. There is no evidence that says that whey protein has any harmful side effects. With moderation, it is very safe. In fact, it can boost your immune system and increase muscularity. Whey protein is also natural and is found in everyday food such as milk.

Another question about whey protein is how much should you consume. Well, for the most part, you could consume it during any time of the day. However, the most beneficial times occur right after you wake up and workout. This is because your body is sensitive and will benefit greatly from its fast absorption.

For the other times of the day, just stick to your basic meats and dairy products for protein. There is no need to rely heavily on supplementation to get you results. Remember that only proper diet and training program will get you there, but supplements can help.

If you aren't already using whey protein, look into it right away. You can get 5lb for under 30$ and that will last you at least a month. You can afford to invest in your body. It doesn't get any better than looking and feeling great.
