Protein supplements . . . protein powders . . . protein shakes . . . catch words in the 21st Century for those into fitness. They can be found in any nutrition store, at most gyms, definitely online . . . in goat milk products . .but what, exactly, do they do?
Protein powders are the most commonly used form of protein supplements because they are a water-soluble milk protein. They are known as a complete protein, meaning they contain all nine of the amino acids necessary for a human’s dietary needs. Yes, one can also get everything a protein powder offers by eating meat, fish, chicken, or dairy products, but protein powders are popular because of their convenience. While working out, one does not have the ability to fry up some lean meat, but it is very easy to mix protein powder with water and drink it down for an added boost.
When would you use a protein powder?
Teenagers need more protein to fuel their bodies. A growing body uses more protein in general and thus needs more to replenish.
Those staring a workout program will want to build muscle, and added protein is needed for this.
If you are increasing your workout program, say in training for a marathon, you will need more protein.
Those recovering from injuries often need more protein to help them heal.
Those looking to lose weight will see results by using protein supplements.
And vegans are finding that protein supplements are a wonderful way to add protein to a diet which does not include meat, chicken, or fish.
In addition, goat milk whey protein is anti-inflammatory, helps with irritable bowels, and has generally been found to further enhance a healthy balance in your body.
So yes, protein supplements are beneficial, and no they are not some New Age gimmick designed to separate you from your hard-earned cash. They are a medically-proven aid to good health and as such should be considered by anyone looking to live a healthy lifestyle.
