Protein Protein can be most easily explained as the fundamental building blocks to increase your skeletal muscle mass. Although protein comes in many forms, in relation to sports nutrition protein supplements play a key role in building muscle cell, increasing the time of recovery and giving your body essential amino acids to grow and function.
Whey protein - Fast digesting protein designed to rapidly help the body grow and recover post workout
Protein blends - Generally a mix of different protein types, with the goal of giving the body different proteins at different break-down times to optimise recovery.
Casein protein - Slow digesting protein, generally used to keep your body digesting protein whilst you sleep/ have prolonged breaks in protein availability.
