Frequently Asked Questions

Why is protein so vital?

Protein has many vital functions. It’s the main structural component of muscles, bones, hair, skin, nails, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Insulin, human growth hormone, and many other hormones are also made from protein, as are the digestive enzymes that help break down food. Our bodies have no way of storing protein, so we must obtain it daily from our diet.

Is whey protein complete?

Yes, it is considered a complete protein, as it contains an optimal balance of all the essential amino acids, which are those that cannot be made by the body and must be obtained through the diet. Whey protein also contains a high amount of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) including leucine, which is a key muscle-building amino acid.

What's the best time of day to take Whey Protein?

You should spread out your protein throughout the day. However, getting a good intake of protein first thing in the morning is important for maximizing muscle mass, so topping up with a serving of Whey Protein for breakfast can be a good idea.

Do we need more protein with age?

Yes, age increases the requirement for dietary protein and the essential amino acids. As you age it is a nutrient that really needs to be prioritized.

What’s a good protein intake and how much can Whey Protein contribute to this?

In this podcast episode, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon recommends one gram per pound of (ideal) body weight. In other words if you are 120 pounds and that’s your ideal body weight, 120g protein a day is about what you should consume daily. That can be hard to get from just food, so a serving of Whey Protein provides 20g per serving to help you meet your needs.
