Top 10 Protein Powders

Top 10 Protein Powders

Everyone's talking about protein. They chat about it after the gym, write about about it in articles (guily as charged) and blogs and discuss it with their healthcare professionals. On top of this, they shake it, bake it, toss it, fry it and grill it for hamburgers. Yes, everyone's talking about protein. And for good reason. Quality protein provides us with the 9 essential amino acids. Plus, protein powders are easily digestible pretty darn convenient too. So maybe everyone's talking about protein, not because it's the fad of the decade, but because we are only starting to reliase how important this stuff really is to general health, chronic disease prevention and sports and exercise recovery. 

 

The essential amino acids have both structural and functional uses within the body. This simply means that they are incorporated into tissues and organs to create structure and are also used to create other important compounds for the workings of the body. Most commonly, protein shakes are taken after exercise to activate the anabolic (building) pathways of the body. This is important, as during exercise our catabolic (breakdown) pathways become very active, and it is not until a significant source of essential amino acids are consumed, like a protein powder, that the overall state of the body can be said to be anabolic again. And anabolic does not necessarily mean you will get massive. This is simply the ideal state to be in to recover from whatever form of exercise you choose, be it long-distance running or powerlifting.

 

The fact that we become catabolic when exercising might seem counterintuitive, especially if you are a bodybuilder. This is simply the design of the body. Any “stressful” event, whether it be minimal sleep, stress or intense exercise causes the release of catabolic hormones such as cortisol. It is important to remember, also, that the body is always in a state of protein turnover. This means, we are always breaking down muscle and building muscle, at the same time. That's right, AT THE SAME TIME! It can be compared to a house with a bricklayer on one side, and someone on demolition on the other. Muscle breakdown is an important process, as we want new fresh muscle fibres to replace the old ones. Stimulating muscle building and taking the body into a state of overall anabolism (where muscle building is greater than muscle degradation) is an important aspect of protein powders. It is the protein powder’s essential amino acid content that stimulates these anabolic pathways.
