Your Guide to Protein Powder

If you’re getting into fitness as part of your New Year’s resolution and have your work outs under control but are wondering about what else you can do and don’t know where to start then ScitecNutrition can help.

It can feel like you’re being bombarded by proteins and supplements so are left wondering if you do really need to be consuming them. Protein is a macronutrient which is essential to building muscle mass and it does form part of a healthy diet and fitness routine, not just something for ‘meat heads’ or those wanting to become body builders.

You need to have protein as part of a balanced diet, especially if you’re looking at building and maintaining muscle mass. Protein sources don’t just come from protein shakes; sources include fish, eggs, meat, beans, pulses, and protein powder.Take Scitec Nutrition’s 100% Whey Protein Professional Powder protein shake, for example.It is a high quality whey protein blend designed to help aid recovery and muscle growth and you would consume this as part of your post workout routine.

The 100% Whey Protein Professional Powder contains a blend of whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate alongside added digestive enzymes and Amino acids. This allows your body to recover faster from your training sessions and improve muscle growth. So why not just eat more protein? Using a protein shake or 100% Whey Protein Professional specifically post-workout will enable you to get protein into the body faster than eating alone.

If you’re worried about taste, you don’t have to be nervous; the powder comes in a range of tasty flavours and can also be added to more than just shakes. You can use protein powder as part of your meal plan.It has great mix-ability, so you can use it in pancakes, porridge and even ice-cream.
