Because whey protein is more quickly digested and has a higher concentration of essential amino acids compared to other protein sources, it is unrivaled for its ability to increase muscle mass in the post-workout period. Whey’s superiority has everything to do with muscle protein synthesis, or MPS.
When it comes to food choices, do you ever think about how many you make each day? Surprisingly, the average person makes about 220 food decisions each day!

However, we noticed at our Ask the Nutritionist booth during Isagenix Celebration 2015 that folks still had questions surrounding their use. Here
While a well-rounded and nutrient-dense diet, set up around sufficient energy requirements, should be the first order of business for anyone looking to build muscle, there are additional supplements to enhance your workout.
