Consuming whey protein is an excellent way to get all the essential amino acids. It is more easily absorbed than plant proteins and has excellent nutritional value. A whey protein shake is good for muscle synthesis after a workout. It helps suppress appetite and reduce food intake. It slows gastric emptying, stimulates insulin, and promotes gut hormones, including the incretins. In this way, it reduces post-prandial blood glucose. Whey may also suppress appetite and reduce food intake.

Make the Most of Whey Protein
• Add Greek yoghurt to the protein powder to make a protein shake.
• Add a limited portion of fruit to the protein shake to improve the taste.
• Add almonds, walnuts, or chia seeds to the protein shake to delay blood sugar absorption.
• Consider adding spinach or avocado for a little more fibre.

Whey protein is rich in essential amino acids and antioxidants. Leucine plays a crucial role in skeletal muscle development. Whey protein benefits against heart ailments, high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes. It boosts injury recovery, improves gut health and shields the skin from harmful radiation.
