When it comes to use of diet during bodybuilding, protein unarguably is the best source to give us big muscles. There are different types of proteins available and this article would give you a review about different types of proteins and then you can get an idea about features of each type. Below is the detail:
1- Casein Protein: Casein is famous because it has great profile of amino acids. This protein gets absorbed slowly in our body. If you are looking instant source of energy, you must not use this protein because it will release energy after quite a bit of time in our body. So for those guys who are thinking of taking this protein during exercise workouts or as as pre and post supplements must take some other instant energy protein. In pre workout supplements, our aim is to get instant energy so that our body can perform well during heavy workouts. So we need instant energy to enable muscles to do well. Similarly, once we are done with our exercise, our body loses quite a bit of energy and needs immediate repair. So post workout supplements provide our body with instant energy to cover the lost energy. In both cases, casein would not be a good option for guys.
2- Whey protein: Whey protein is the one which is best suited to be taken as pre or post workout supplements because it releases energy quickly due to good amino acids and variety of peptides. Most of the supplements which are used as pre or post workout supplements, normally contain whey protein and you can use whey protein shakes to get instant energy.
3- Soy protein is the third type of protein and there is some controversy about this protein. Some studies say that it is not a good type of protein and should not be taken while others say that it is good. I would say that since there is a doubt, we should avoid this type and use other types of proteins which are ranked good for muscle building.
