Whey Protein

20% of the proteins in milk are whey proteins. The profile of whey proteins is mostly the existence of an amino acid with low levels of lactose present. There are various forms of whey proteins with the occurrence of whey protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate and whey protein concentrate. They are easy to digest and give a lot of energy before a workout routine. Whey protein helps to build muscle mass, facilitates the growth of the muscles and the extra amount of fat is burned out, which results in a healthy weight gain.

Casein Protein

Casein proteins are about 85 of the total milk proteins with an advantage to maintain the slightest presence of amino acids in the blood for a long time. Other protein powders digest quickly while casein protein takes time to fully digest in the blood stream. Not only the energy is enhanced but it is also stored to build muscle mass. The loss of fat is collected to gain weight and build the body. It can be perfect for maintaining energy for a long time.
