What is Whey Protein?
Whole milk has two types of proteins; casein (80%) and whey (20%). Whey is the liquid part of milk that is separated during the production of cheese. It is also the thin liquid you sometimes see when you open a can of yoghurt. This liquid is processed to a powder which is whey protein. This is what is used in MREs, shakes, and protein bars. But for athletic supplements, you needwhey protein isolate Australia that is low in sugar.
Pure whey protein Australia powder is very useful for people with high protein needs like bodybuilders, MMA fighters, and sprint runners. It is a useful supplement to post-workout meals and snacks, helping the muscle fibres recover faster, heal torn tissue, and build new muscle cells.
Whey protein is safe to take for many people though people with lactose intolerance should consult a dietician before use.
When Should You take whey powder?
Protein forms the building blocks of your body. You will need it for the following;
Athletic performance – More lean muscle translates to increased power, speed, and strength for sports. You should supplement with whey protein if you need to increase your muscle mass without increasing body weight. Whey protein helps the process of building muscle mass by;
- Providing amino acids which are the building blocks in muscle building. This includes leucine which is crucial in the making of muscle building at the cellular level, ensuring long-lasting muscle growth
- Triggering the release of anabolic hormones that stimulate muscle growth, for example, insulin
- Optimizing muscle growth by providing quick absorption proteins immediately after workouts when the muscles are most prepped for protein use.
- Providing higher levels of protein for the same mass as other protein sources e.g. soy protein
Other proven benefits of using whey isolate include;
Lowered cholesterol levels- A study done in people taking whey protein showed that whey protein users had gradually lower levels of lipid and insulin levels. Total cholesterol levels dropped as well while retaining levels of good cholesterol (LDL)
Anti-asthma – Whey protein has been seen to improve the immunity of children with asthma. Children who supplemented with as little as 20 grams per day showed lowered attacks after 1 month and had lowered attacks from other ailments as well.
Lowered blood pressure and risk of cardiovascular disease- Regular users of whey protein have been found to have lower blood pressure, and at lower risk of developing hypertension as well as lowered risks of getting a stroke or heart disease.
Eczema (atopic dermatitis) prevention - Whey protein supplement is useful for babies in the first 3-12 months of life in helping reduce the risk of eczema in later years. Research shows that babies on protein formula are less likely to develop skin allergies than children of the same age who are fed standard formula.
Reversing muscle loss in HIV/AIDS- The high protein levels in whey protein can help reverse muscle wastage in people living with HIV/AIDS.
Treating dry and itchy skin – Supplementing with high protein levels like whey protein helps fight dry, itchy, and scaly skin (psoriasis). People taking whey protein supplements see positive skin results in 5-8 weeks.
What is the best storage method for whey protein powder?
Foods containing protein are by nature short-lived; meats, eggs, dairy. Whey protein has a short shelf life as well. You are advised to buy whey protein Australia that you can use in 2-3 months. A quick estimation is that you need about 30 grams per day, so for three months, you would need about a kilo or less.
If you buy more than one container ofwhey Australia supplement, take care not to break the seal until you are ready to consume it. Arrange your containers from front to back on the shelf with the upcoming expiry dates at the front. Ensure that you seal the container tightly after serving the whey protein you need. This is because whey protein attracts moisture and mould which can be toxic.
Store your WPI whey protein in a cool dry place free of moisture. You should never store your whey protein in the freezer or fridge, to avoid attracting condensation moisture. If possible, wrap the whey protein container in a food-safe wrapper packet to prolong its shelf life.
What are the serving sizes for WPI whey isolate powder?
Protein needs vary from one person to another, with more physically active people needing higher protein intake. It also depends on your fitness goals;
- When attempting to lose weight and replace it with lean muscle mass you should target the daily intake at 1.5-2.2g/kg or 0.68-1g/lb. of your bodyweight
- If you have a goal of losing body fat while preserving the existing lean muscle, whey protein intake should be lowered to a daily intake of 1.0-1.5g/kg or 0.45-0.68g/lb. of your bodyweight
- If you just want to lose body weight but are relatively sedentary e.g. office worker, your daily intake should be 0.8g/kg or 0.36g/lb. of your bodyweight
However, people who are already overweight are advised to avoid high protein intake, until their Body Mass Index drops to the normal level.
What does WPI whey protein isolate do?
The human body including bone, ligament, muscle, organs, soft tissue, and even hormones are made of proteins. Every single part of the body needs proteins. This means your muscles need protein to build new muscle fibre, repair and heal when torn. Proteins provide essential amino acids that are crucial in these bodybuilding processes.
WPI Whey protein contains all the essential amino acids including the complex amino acids like cysteine, branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), and leucine. The human body has a high affinity for whey protein and can use it very effectively. Human breast milk is made of 60% whey, 3 times higher than the 20% level in cow's milk.
Why should you use whey protein isolate?
You should use whey protein to increase lean muscle mass, and encourage healing and repair of fatigued and injured muscle tissue. You should take whey protein before and after working out. The protein will be synthesized to provide an energy boost during the workout, and also provide the healing material after the workout.
Research has shown that daily protein intake is the most important factor in muscle building and growth. The timing of the intake is secondary to the intake. WPI protein powder has shown better absorption than other protein sources like soy, which makes it ideal for fast action.
How much do you need per day?
Fitness experts opine that a person of relatively mild physical activity needs 25-50 grams per day, which is 1-2 spoon servings. Most athletes take whey protein after their workouts, but pre-workout intake is equally effective.
For more precise results, you will need to take into account your Body Mass Index (BMI), and the amount of weight in lean body mass. People with more lean body mass can absorb higher amounts of amino acids, which means they require higher whey protein intake.
WPI or WPC, which is better?
Many people are confused when it comes todifferentiating Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) and Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC). Both contain high levels of protein and are normally made from cow milk. The main difference is that WPI contains lower levels of sugar (lactose), which is naturally found in milk. This is because whey protein isolate is obtained by further refinement of WPC. While both deliver high levels of protein, WPI is better for developing lean mass without weight gain, which comes from sugar.
