Undenatured Whey Protein vs Soy



Undenatured Whey Protein vs  Soy

Undenatured whey protein

How is undenatured whey protein better than soy?

Protein quality and quantity are important in the pursuit for long-term quality of life. Undenatured whey protein is the optimal protein for adults. Whey’s ability for muscle retention is much better than soy (and other protein sources).  Undenatured whey protein is superior for stimulating muscle and for muscle retention.

Muscle is necessary for movement, strength and action. Time taxes our bodies our  muscle mass.  With the combination of less energy and less physical activity, we see the connection between aging and a loss in muscle.

*A 2012 study shows that yes, soy is a good quality protein, but whey is far better for repairing and building muscle. Undenatured whey protein is high in leucine, which stimulates muscle growth, and with all of the other essential amino acids in whey protein, it the rate for protein growth in our body increases.

Adults should  have undenatured whey protein throughout the day

Typically young adults need 20 grams of protein to promote muscle growth.  Mature adults need more protein, twice as much, to accomplish the same growth.  So a younger person requires 20 grams of undenatured whey protein per meal and 40 grams per meal for an older adult.  We usually don’t spread out our protein consumption equally during the day. Typically it’s maybe 6 grams protein at breakfast, 12-15 grams at lunch, and a whopping 60 grams at dinner; not such a good idea if you want to keep the muscle you’ve got.

This video explains in greater detail about undenatured whey protein and its benefits.

 

The best protein for all the reasons I stated above is undenatured whey protein isolate from New Zealand grass-fed cattle.  The best source with the absolute best tasting shake by far is IsaPro from Isagenix International.
Organic, gluten-free and contains a full essential amino acids profile.
