The Protein Powder Guide

Posted on 01-Feb-2016 by Kripa Jalan

Face it - it’s extremely tough, if not impossible to eat 5-7 timely, “square” meals a day. That’s where supplements come into the picture. Whether as a mid-day snack or as an aid to enhance our training, they offer a convenient way to receive high-quality nutrition in precise, calculable amounts.

As you may have noticed it’s extremely simple to meet your daily carbohydrate and fat needs. However, when it comes to protein it may become extremely tough to meet these demands solely from lean and natural sources. Pounding meats and eggs all day long may not only become monotonous but may not be supplying your body with the exact amounts of protein, but in random amounts.

As opposed to natural protein sources, supplements document high bioavailability, controlled calories and nutrients, have targeted use and cater to specific needs. The hoards of brands and different kinds of protein powders available on the market shelves would baffle anyone. Before you go by hearsay or fall for the stellar appearance of the box, there are a couple of things you need to know. 

Firstly our golden rule with supplements - Need it take it, don't need it don't take it.

Next the origin of the protein, the way it was manufactured, its advantages, its disadvantages and its relevance to your needs. While there may not be an exact algorithm, but meagrely a trial and error method to answer the last question, the following cheat sheet will definitely help you out.
