Why Whey Protein Powder
Whey Protein Powder
Almost every day for lunch, I have a whey protein shake.
I add two scoops of whey protein powder into the blender, add rice milk, yogurt and a banana or strawberries and blueberries and blend them all up together.
This makes a wonderful healthy drink full of goodness and is all I need as the whey isolate protein gives me enough energy and keeps me full until my next meal.
A great healthy, energy enriched drink.
The Facts About Whey Isolates
Whey protein power is made from the rich contents of filter milk, making a rich concentrate or isolate whey powder.
These isolates contain fat-free protein which is also almost lactose, carbohydrate and cholesterol free.
This high source of protein helps to repair muscle and cell growth in our bodies and is nutrient dense which provides increased energy levels.
It also improves digestion as it is high in fibre, regulates natural body weight and when taken often exercise aids in recovery.
So as you can see if taken every day in a smoothie or added to healthy cakes and biscuits when baking, you will reap the benefits of whey protein power.
It is especially handy to have in the house during times if ill-health for a light easy nourishing meal.
