Being a personal trainer , most clients tend to have questions about their diet and more specifically protein intake. Among the questions that are asked regarding protein, which protein powders are the best is a common question that I am asked. So what is my opinion on protein supplementation than protein powders?
There are many protein supplements out there on the market as sports supplementation is a multi-billion-dollar industry. However it is very important to realize that the supplement industry is not regulated by the FDA so you got to be careful with what supplements you purchase. My advice is to always go with a reputable company that has been around for an extended period of time with good reviews.
That being said to increase your protein intake I do feel that protein powders can be very beneficial. In regards to the powders, I feel that whey protein isolate is going to give you the most efficient protein for your body to assimilate. Make sure that whey protein isolate is the first ingredient on the ingredient list of your protein powder. Make sure to stay away from protein powders that have proprietary blends and maltodextrin.
Additionally at your best served to stay away from protein bars as well. Many protein bars are filled with sugar alcohol, and fillers that are no good for you.
