Why are protein shakes post-workout important?
Protein is the main nutrient which everybody needs to support their internal and external repair process and the immune system. My suggestion is that you consume a generous amount (30-40g) of protein within 30-60 minutes post-workout.
Other benefits of consuming protein shakes have been seen to be fat loss, hunger prevention, fighting off cancer from peptides and amino acids found in dietary proteins and reduced stress levels relating to brain health.
Currently I am using a protein called Prana which I have chosen because it’s organic and adds micronutrients to my health like complex carbohydrates, healthy fats from flaxseed oils, creatine monohydrate, digestive enzymes and complex amino acids.
