Whey Protein Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient Whey Protein

Whey protein and casein are the two major types of proteins in milk. While casein is digested more slowly, whey is a quickly and easily digested source of protein. It contains essential amino acids, including branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), and its amino-acid profile is similar to that of human skeletal muscle. While whey protein is naturally found in dairy products, it is also available in a more concentrated form in dietary supplements. These include health and bodybuilding supplements such as CytoSport, IsoBolic, Multi-Pro and Elite whey protein powders.

Functions of Whey Protein

Protein contributes to the growth, development and repair of human tissue, so consuming whey protein can help to support these functions. The amino acids contained in whey protein play a critical role in regulating protein metabolism, and are believed to aid the body in transitioning from a catabolic state to an anabolic state following exercise. Furthermore, studies have suggested that whey protein may decrease fat stores in the body and increase feelings of satiety (fullness), thereby helping to regulate weight and body composition.

Sources of Whey Protein

Dairy products are a natural source of whey protein, which separates from milk during the cheese-making process. Among food sources, ricotta cheese contains the highest levels of whey protein; however, it can also be found in milk, yogurt and other cheeses. When whey protein is extracted and processed for use in natural dietary supplements, it can take one of several forms, including whey powder, whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate. Of these, whey protein isolate contains the highest protein content, followed by whey protein concentrate and then whey powder.

Whey Protein Benefits and Uses

Consuming whey protein elevates the body’s overall levels of protein and essential amino acids, which help to maintain human skeletal muscles. As a result, whey protein is a popular ingredient in health and bodybuilding supplements, where it is used to increase muscle mass and strength as well as improve athletic performance. Because whey protein appears to decrease fat stores and create feelings of fullness, it is also used as an appetite suppressant and may be included as an ingredient in weight-loss supplements.

Another benefit of whey protein is its ability to lower blood-sugar levels, which may be helpful for individuals with milder cases of diabetes that can be controlled with proper diet and exercise. Whey protein is also used as an ingredient in baby formulas because it is an easily digested form of protein and provides important nutrients needed for growth and development. There are many other purported uses of whey protein – ranging from acid reflux to chronic lung conditions to psoriasis – though evidence in these areas is currently inconclusive.

Side Effects of Whey Protein and Potential Interactions

Whey protein is generally considered safe for most adults; users should follow the recommended dosage and directions listed on dietary supplements. Those who are lactose intolerant or have a known sensitivity to milk may find that some whey protein formulas can cause similar symptoms, such as bloating, cramps, diarrhea or nausea. When taken in high doses, whey protein may cause headaches, fatigue or thirst in some people.

Individuals taking certain types of medication should be aware of potential interactions. Whey protein may decrease the absorption of levodopa, alendronate and some antibiotics (including quinolone, fluoroquinolone and tetracycline). Since whey protein has been shown to lower blood-glucose levels, it can cause hypoglycemia when it is taken in combination with diabetes medications. When whey protein is taken in combination with blood thinners, it may increase the risk of bleeding.

More detailed safety information on whey protein side effects and interactions can be found on the Mayo Clinic website. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing whey protein.

Whey Protein Research and Studies

Numerous studies have examined the effects of whey protein on muscle mass, muscle recovery, athletic performance and body composition. For example, recent animal studies published in the journals Nutrition and Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that resistance exercise combined with whey protein led to significant muscle weight increases in rats and that whey protein supplementation improved exercise performance, body composition and biochemical assessments in mice.

Human trials also support the use of whey protein for post-exercise recovery and improved body composition. Research published in Amino Acids determined that whey protein may accelerate the muscle regeneration/remodeling process after high-intensity exercise, while the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism reported that whey protein supplements taken by runners facilitated their recovery from strenuous training. In the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, researchers analyzed 14 randomized, controlled trials on generally healthy adults and found that whey protein supplements – either combined with resistance exercise or as part of a weight-loss or weight-maintenance diet – improved body composition parameters.

In addition, research findings suggest that whey protein supplements are beneficial for overweight and diabetic individuals. In the Journal of Applied Physiology, researchers studied overweight/obese adults who consumed whey protein supplements either with or without exercise and found that all of them lost body weight, fat mass and abdominal fat. Among those test subjects, the group that took whey protein supplements in combination with a multimode exercise training program lost significantly more body weight and gained a greater percentage of lean body mass. An article published in Diabetologia examined the impact of whey protein on diabetics, and determined that taking whey protein before breakfast helped to increase insulin levels and decrease glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes. For additional whey protein research reports, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Best Bodybuilding Supplements to Gain Weight, Lean Mass, and Muscle

Best Supplements to Gain Weight with Solid Muscle

Beginner bodybuilders often wonder; why is it so important to gain weight in my bodybuilding career? Isn't the goal to burn fat while gaining muscle? While this is essentially true, the reality is that muscle weighs more than fat by volume. As such, the more muscle you gain and the more fat you'll lose, the more weight you'll gain overall. Of course, if you currently have a skinny frame, weight gain is important to bodybuilding even if you've never set foot in the weight room.

Gaining weight is actually just as difficult for some individuals as losing weight is for others. One way of gaining weight safely is by using natural bodybuilding supplements in combination with a proper strength training routine and a strategic diet, one that includes plenty of protein, complex carbs and healthy unsaturated fats.

Here are some of the best supplements to gain weight with solid muscle:

Ana-GH

 
ANA-GH by HGH.com
and Purity Select
Created in 2012 by Purity Select, Ana-GH is a natural bodybuilding supplement available from HGH.com. It contains Maca, Horny Goat Weed, Mantha Piperita, Magnesium Stearate and a variety of other natural ingredients like L-Leucine and L-Valine, all designed to work in combination to help you gain weight consisting of solid muscle, safely and naturally. This is accomplished by enhancing your body's natural ability to synthesize muscle from the protein-rich foods you consume.

With the help of Ana-GH, each gram of protein you eat will be better utilized by your body, making for more efficient dieting. Ana-GH is designed to be taken primarily during the bodybuilding off-season as a way of jumpstarting your bulking cycle and delivers results in approximately two weeks. It also has excellent water retention properties, lubing your joints to reduce injury risk during heavy lifting.

Anapolan Max 50

 
Anapolan Max
Anapolan Max 50 is another one of the best supplements to gain weight, and it's also available from HGH.com. Anapolan Max 50 can be added to your existing bodybuilding supplement regimen in order to allow you to gain an extra 15 pounds of pure, lean muscle in the next 1.5 to 2 months. It's considered a legal steroid, with properties that fall just short of making it an illegal steroid. The ingredients are natural and include Horny Goat Weed, Tribulus Terrestris, Shailaji and L-Tyrosine, which work together to stimulate healthy weight gain similar to Ana-GH. This product is designed for more advanced bodybuilders who are looking to gain weight very quickly.

Dekka

 
Dekka Legal Mass Builder
Recreated in 2012
Another fantastic supplement that I consider one of the best supplements to gain weight is Dekka, available at HGH.com. Dekka is the most popular legal weight gain supplement on the market, largely due to its lack of side effects and the fact that it reinforces joint health while spurring muscular weight gain. Dekka includes active ingredients like Wild Yam Root, Yucca Bark and Korean Ginseng Root, which also increase your appetite to allow you to pack in more protein with each meal. Only one tab must be taken each day, with or without food.

In late 2012, Dekka's formula was reworked and redesigned by HGH.com and Purity Select to give a more potent formula and additional ingredients to make it more effective than ever before.

ROID X Juice

Finally, Roid X Juice is one of our supplements that gets great feedback. Roid Juice is used by many bodybuilders after an anabolic cycle or even during. Roid X contains "Tribulus Terrestris", which is known to increase testosterone levels naturally. It also contains Dehydroepiandrosterone, which is thought to give lean body mass, strength, and increased testosterone levels - although scientific studies are still inclusive on this. Lastly, Roid X contains Moomiyo "Black Gold", which is a very strong adaptogenic herbal mineral from Russia that gives strong natural anabolic healing properties. It's often been used by Russian Athletes and Astronauts to increase strength and lean muscle mass due to its incredible properties.
