On March 19, 2013 the Muscular Development Store issues a response to an article discussing the difference between casein and whey protein.
A recent article on Stack asks readers, “What is the difference between whey and casein protein?” According to the article, whey and casein are two popular kinds of protein often used in supplements for athletes. Both are derived from dairy milk, but each offers unique benefits for different fitness goals. Accordingly, Stack advises that each be consumed for different purposes.
Whey protein, according to Stack, makes up almost a quarter of the total dietary protein found in cow’s milk. Since whey protein is easy for the body to absorb and digest, the article recommends it as a post-workout supplement, saying that it should be consumed by athletes “within 30 minutes after a workout to supply your muscles with amino acids.”
Stack warns athletes and fitness enthusiasts to remember that “protein powder and other protein supplements should be used to supplement your diet, not as a substitute for whole-food protein options such as lean meat, fish, nuts, milk and eggs.”
Brian Turner, representative for Muscular Development Store, offers his input on the question of protein supplementation. “Research has shown that protein supplementation increases muscle mass and strength when used in conjunction with resistance training. There’s no question that a carefully-managed protein supplement regimen can have positive results. However, it has to be approached mindfully— be careful to use whey and casein appropriately. Use whey for short-term energy boosts and casein for long-term, background protein infusion. And, as always, make sure you are getting an adequate supply of protein from whole-food sources to meet your basic dietary needs before you consider using supplements.”
