Whey Protein Boosts Muscle Protein Synthesis

Whey Protein Boosts Muscle Protein Synthesis
Whey protein stimulates muscle protein synthesis, even when you don’t lift weights— according to a literature review by researchers from Finland and the United States. They concluded that whey protein works best when combined with weight training. At least in younger athletes, consuming whey protein supplements after exercise promotes recovery and increases gains in strength and muscle mass. Whey protein should be part of every bodybuilder’s sports nutrition arsenal. (Nutrition Metabolism, 7: 51 Published Online)
