1. Which is the best protein for mass gain?
1 scoop WPC combined with 2 scoops of Oatmass.
2. Which is the best protein for lean muscle gain?
Whey Protein Isolate.
3. Which is the best protein to make a meal replacement shake?
1 scoop Micellar Casein (MPI) with 2 scoops Oatmass and a multivitamin.
4. What's the best protein to use after exercise?
Both Whey Protein Hydrolysate (WPH) and Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) are excellent choices. Add in Waxy Maize Starch for fast glycogen replenishment.
5. What's the best protein to take before bed?
Micellar Casein (MPI). This protein takes up to 7hrs to fully digest, slowly feeding your body amino acids throughout the night while you sleep. Micellar Casein is proven to prevent muscle catabolism (the body feeding on muscle tissue) during the day and night. Remember, you grow outside of the gym so it's important to give your body the nutrients it needs to build muscle for the 7-10 hours you're asleep.
6. I'm not a hardcore athlete and I get confused about supplements – which protein should I use?
Whey Protein Concentrate is a great all-round protein at an affordable price and is the perfect option for the general gym-goer who wants to increase their protein intake for better results.
7. I'm lactose intolerant – what protein can I use?
Whey Protein Isolate is highly refined and the lactose removed. It is suitable for those that are lactose intolerant.
8. Which is the best protein?
Different proteins are better at doing different things. Micellar Casein (MPI) is the best before bed because it's slow releasing. Whey Protein Hydrolysate is the best after a workout because it's pre-digested so the nutrients are absorbed into your body fast. Overall however, Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) is the king of proteins with the highest protein and amino acid content, lowest fat and carbohydrate content, and fast digestion into your body.
