With so much buzz about protein lately how can you know which protein is right for you? Well, there are different proteins available designed for different purposes. Derived from the Greek word “prota,” meaning of primary importance, protein is an important building block that aids in the growth, maintenance, and repair of muscle tissue. Essential parts of organisms, proteins participate in every process within cells. Proteins are vital to the metabolic process. Whey protein is a dairy protein present in cow’s milk or obtained as a by-product in cheese manufacturing. Providing quick nourishment to muscles, whey protein furnishes the body with high levels of essentials amino acids (EAAs) and branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Plus, it helps build muscles and enables them to recover quickly after stress. Egg albumin, commonly known as egg whites, contains no cholesterol, is fat-free, and low in calories. Containing more than 8 types of protein, egg albumin is considered a “perfect protein” because it contains all the building blocks of life (protein, minerals, vitamins & good cholesterol). In addition, egg albumin is an easily digestible and absorbable protein that contains all the essential amino acids required for optimal recovery after intense muscle building workouts and supports lean body mass. Building Blocks Protein contains both whey protein and egg albumin. This high quality, lean protein powder contains 110 calories, 20 grams of protein, less than 2 grams of fat and 4-6 grams of fiber per serving, as well as an assortment of vitamins, minerals and amino acids for overall health.
