More Information About Protein Shakes
With so many protein powders and shakes on the market we have listed the top rated protein shakes available today.
Whey concentrate protein shakes - this is the most basic protein shake available. Most of the cheaper protein powders bought straight off the shelf contain whey concentrate protein. These shakes are ideal for beginners who do not want to be left feeling out of pocket.
Casein protein shakes - the body takes between five and seven hours to break these shakes down. They can be used as a meal replacement or simply to top up your body's protein levels. Whatever the use, casein protein shakes are a great way of providing your muscles with a constant supply of protein over a long period of time.
Whey isolates protein shakes - in contrast to casein protein shakes these whey isolates protein shakes are broken down by the body very quickly. They are very low in carbohydrates and are perfect for before and after an intense workout, because they're easily broken down the protein can get to the working muscles quicker.
Hydrolysates protein shakes - these shakes are the most expensive on the market. Because they are so expensive however hydrolysates are the most effective, they have few side effects on the body and are perfect for before and after exercise.
The above are usually purchased in a powder format and should be added to either water or milk to produce the shake. Unless stated otherwise on the label protein shakes should ideally be consumed 45 minutes before a work out and immediately after.
Purchasing powder rather than ready- made protein shakes is a cost effective way of adding a large amount of protein to your diet over a long period of time. For a one off then ready- made shakes are probably more suitable.
The shakes and powders usually come in a range of flavours. Although the manufacturers try to add taste to what would otherwise be a very boring drink they sometimes do not succeed. The fact that these powders and shake do not contain sugars make it difficult to improve their taste.
This said however protein shakes are very effective and each of the four types listed above are very popular, each works in a different way. Manufacturers may not advertise their products directly by the names in the list but by studying the packaging closely you should be able to determine what type of protein shake it is.
