Whey Protein Isolate is the most common, most popular post-workout protein on the market. Thanks to its quick release it has been long used for improving post-workout recovery.
Whey Protein Isolate is also the lowest carbohydrate, lowest fat, and lowest lactose containing protein. This makes it excellent for anyone looking to add protein to a fat loss diet, or for those who are lactose intolerant.
This complete protein is also a popular addition to many breakfast shakes. Since the body does not get to take in any amino acids while sleeping, it wakes up depleted and needs to be replenished. Adding a scoop of Whey Protein Isolate to breakfast replenishes the amino acids in the blood stream.
For optimal post-workout recovery you should add some fast-acting carbohydrates to help refill glycogen stores and to drive more amino acids into muscle cells. Take a look at adding Waxy Maize Starch or Maltodextrin to your post-workout shake for improved recovery and added muscle mass.
