Considered the “gold standard” for athletes and the physically active, it is well-known that whey protein has the highest “biological value,” a measurement of how well a protein retains nitrogen or how usable it is to the body, as high nitrogen absorption enhances muscle gain. Compared to other proteins, whey contains the highest concentration of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) that serve as important fuel sources for skeletal muscle during periods of metabolic stress, including exercise.
In addition to its role in sports nutrition, whey protein is also a functional food with tremendous implications for general human health. It provides heart health benefits, enhances immune function, and helps maintain a healthy body weight and promote bone health. It is also a great alternative for parents who wish to boost their child’s nutritional status.
