Whey Protein: Gain Muscle, Burn Fat

Whether you want to build muscle or cut fat, whey protein works in your favor. The study of recovery nutrition-nutrition before, during and after exercise- has shown that whey protein has the ideal array of essential amino acids and branched-chain amino acids to stimulate muscle recovery and growth. Whether before or after axercise, whey protein stimulates protein synthesis, allowing muscles to recover from each bout of exercise and prepare for the next day's bout.
