all the different types of supplements on the market nowadays,
it's becoming increasingly difficult to know what you really need.
While whey protein is an all time favourite for bodybuilders and
athletes, there are other supplements which are worth taking a
look as well notably protein blends, casein or egg white protein.
These proteins are also known as time release proteins.
While a time release protein can be a simple egg white protein
or casein protein, the best ones would be a mixture of different
types of protein sources which we call a protein blend such as
whey and casein or whey, casein and egg albumen just to cite a
great thing about a time release protein is the added benefit
of multiple stage release of amino acids into your bloodstream
since these proteins digest at different rates from fast, medium
to slow. Whey is a fast-acting protein, egg white is a medium-release
protein while casein is a slow-release protein. In other words,
you get the best of both worlds.
time release protein will promote quick muscle growth while keeping
your body anabolic for an extended period of time thanks to the
casein present in most protein blends which provides a sustained
release of amino acids up to 7-8 hours or more. There are several
types of casein protein notably micellar casein, calcium caseinate
and milk protein isolate. For the instant released proteins, you
should usually see hydrolyzed whey, whey isolates or whey concentrates
which have fast digestion rates within 10 minutes and 30 minutes
respectively. Time release proteins are a good option for pre-bed
as well as post-workout nutrition but you can definitely take
this protein any time of the day as well including meal replacement.
you're health-conscious, you'd better stick to natural protein
powders which are free from artificial sweeteners(sucralose, acesulfame
potassium, aspartame), flavors, colors, fillers or chemicals,
instead opt for supplements containing natural sweeteners like
stevia and cane sugar for instance. Stevia is a zero calorie sweetener
and is derived from the leaves of the herbal plant Stevia rebaudiana.
