Whey protein is one of the only truly complete proteins for humans based on Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAA). Its high leucine content enables it to powerfully enhance muscle protein synthesis signaling and trigger exercise recovery.
- Contains more leucine than any other source of protein.
- Enhances lean body mass gain from weight training.
- Doubling protein intake from 12% to 23% of total daily calorie intake with whey protein, but not soy protein, has been shown to reduce body fat by 6 pounds.
Q: How much protein do I need?
A: Protein is best dosed relative to your body weight. In other words, protein should be consumed on a gram per kilogram or gram per pound of body weight basis. The minimum amount of protein any individual requires per day is 0.8 grams per kilogram (0.36 grams per pound). Endurance athletes require between 1.5 and 2.0 grams per kilogram (0.68 – 0.91), and strength athletes require 1.7 – 2.2 grams per kilogram (0.77 – 1) gram per pound.
Q: Is eating too much protein dangerous?
A: Under most circumstances no. “Too much” protein only becomes a concern for individuals with inborn errors of metabolism (such as the inability to digest proteins due to enzymatic insufficiencies) or another pre-existing disease.
