What is Protein Powder?

Protein powders are nutritional protein supplements that help repair tissue, build muscles, and synthesise enzymes and hormones. A protein powder supplement can play a potentially useful role in terms of optimising physical health and positively influencing the subsequent recovery processes for both resistance and endurance training. The best protein powders are mainly categorised into 1) Plant-based protein powder and 2.) Animal-based protein powder supplements that include whey concentrate, hydrolysate, and isolate. The daily protein intake for athletes and individuals involved in resistance training is 1.4-2.0 g /kg body weight. 

Steadfast Nutrition has the best protein powder in the market. Our formulations include Warmax, MiCaesin, HerbFast Protein, Power Protein, Nitromax Protein, LIV RAW, Incredible Isolate, Incredible Whey, Wheylo and Power Active. These are available as single servings in sachets with adequate serving sizes.

Benefits of Protein Powder:

Proteins are essential in the human diet throughout life - they ensure growth in childhood, support muscle and bone metabolism, ensure the body’s maintenance and development, and help maintain weight and physical performance in older individuals. 

1. The following are the benefits of protein powder:

1. Help Manage Weight: Protein supplements provide satiety and help curb cravings, which helps an individual maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.

2. Increase Muscle Growth and Strength: Taking the best protein powder supplement is essential for muscle growth. A 2020 study by the British Journal of Sports Medicine, protein supplements significantly improve muscle size and strength in healthy adults who perform resistance exercise training. 

2. Expedite Recovery after Exercise

Proteins are made up of amino acids, which act like building blocks for the body. The consumption of a protein powder supplement after intense training gives muscles the necessary amino acids to build and repair. 

3. Reduces DOMS (Delayed onset of Muscle Soreness) 

Long-duration, high-intensity workouts cause wear and tear in the muscle tissues. In response, our body releases inflammatory chemicals, leading to muscle soreness and stiffness. High protein intake relieves the pain and prevents cramps. Consuming a protein powder supplement after a workout helps speed up recovery and reduces the delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS).

4. Helps Treat Muscle injury:

Increasing protein intake helps reduce the duration of the entire healing process because of its role in RNA and DNA synthesis, collagen and elastic tissue formation, and acceleration of the healing process during the injury period.

5. Improve Skin Health

Proteins are the building block of skin tissue essential for healthy skin. They contain L-lysine and L-proline that support collagen production. Collagen improves skin health and dryness and reduces wrinkles.

6. Boost Hair Health:

One can nourish their hair from within by consuming protein-rich foods or protein supplements. The protein converts into amino acids to form keratin - a structural protein for nails, hair, and skin. 

7. Fill Nutritional Gaps

Vegans and vegetarians are not able to get enough proteins as plant sources lack a few amino acids. This gap can be bridged by consuming a combination of milk and cereals or one of cereals and pulses. Protein powder supplements are the best for supplementing  individuals lacking proper nutrition, vegans, vegetarians, and individuals involved in sports and resistance training.

Types of Protein Powders

Protein powder supplements are widely available in the market and are derived from plant or animal sources of proteins. They are easy to consume - one can mix them with water or milk or have them in the form of protein shakes. 

Animal Protein: Proteins from animal sources have a high biological value and are a complete source of protein. They include eggs, milk, meat, fish, and poultry amongst others. Animal sources of protein can be further categorised into: 

1. Whey:

It is the translucent liquid part of milk separated during curdling. Whey products can also be used in emulsifiers, salad dressings, and infant and medical formulas. Varieties of whey commonly found in the market are whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, and whey protein hydrolysate. 

2. Casein: 

A major component of protein found in bovine milk, it is also a complete source of protein but takes a longer time to digest. 

3. Egg white protein: 

It is made by separating yolk from egg whites. The egg white is then dehydrated to form a powder, which is used as a protein powder supplement.  

4. Meat protein:

Meat protein is made up of chicken or beef. The various cuts of meat are boiled in large vats and the resulting liquid is then skimmed to remove most of the fat. Finally, it is spray-dried to form beef protein isolate powder. It is not commonly used. A meat protein powder supplement is costlier than a whey or plant protein powder supplement. 

5. Soy protein: 

This protein is made from dehulling or defatted soybeans. It is a nutrient-dense alternative to meat and flesh. 

6. Pea Protein Powder: 

This protein powder is extracted from yellow dried peas and is the best source of high-quality protein, fibre, and iron. It is mainly used by vegans and vegetarians.

7. Brown Rice Protein Powder: 

It contains both rice and rice bran protein. The brown rice is treated with several enzymes to separate proteins and carbohydrates, resulting in brown rice protein powder. 

8. Sacha Inchi Protein Powder: 

It is a natural source of protein that contains all the essential  amino acids. It is extracted from sacha-inch seeds. 

9. Chia Seeds Protein Powder:

Derived from chia seeds, it contains essential nutrients such as antioxidants and omega-3.

10. Plant Protein Blend:

It is a mixture of two or more types of protein extracted from different plant protein sources. Cases in point are soya with pea protein isolate, and pea with brown rice protein blend.

How to Choose the Best Protein Powder Supplement:

Choosing the best protein powder supplements from endless options is not easy. Keep the following factors in mind before choosing a protein powder supplement:

Quality: The quality of protein depends upon the making, digestibility, and their source. A good quality protein should contain branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and all nine essential amino acids (EAAs) which form a complete protein profile. Heat treatment would denature the protein and degrade its quality.

The source of protein is an important factor that determines quality - animal-based protein supplements have a high biological value as compared to plant-based sources. Plant sources of protein lack a few amino acids such as lysine and methionine, amongst others, making them an incomplete source of protein. Protein supplements should include all the EAAs but ensure first before choosing. The best protein powder for muscle gain and recovery for athletes is Warmarx. The protein powder price varies from one supplement to the other. 

Ingredients: Always look for minimal ingredients and processing products. Check the nutritional information for various added ingredients other than protein. Avoid unwanted additions of honey sweeteners, maple syrup, sugar alcohols (Maltitol, erythritol), artificial flavouring, and refined sugars as they may cause adverse effects on health such as digestive distress. Additionally, a few brands may mask the ingredients as their proprietary blends without listing them, which can disqualify the athletes.

The best protein powders by Steadfast Nutrition include Warmax, Nitromax Protein, and Incredible whey from the protein range. Buy protein powder from Steadfast Nutrition’s website, Amazon, and Flipkart. The protein powder price varies with different protein powder types. You can easily make protein shakes out of these protein supplements, which are easy to consume.

Side Effects of Protein Powder:

Protein powders can be used by athletes and gymgoers. The most common side effect of a protein powder supplement is that it can upset the digestive system.

Taking  excess protein supplements may cause symptoms such as intestinal discomfort, constipation, nausea, and dehydration and may damage the kidney and liver in the long run. Another side effect of protein supplements is that they increase the production of hormones that produce sebum, causing acne.
