Protein

Protein is a macro nutrient that is essential to building muscle and the creation of a strong, healthy body.

There are three vital macro nutrients, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Protein is responsible for building muscle, and so for endurance, strength development, body building and as part of an overall fitness regime, a high intake of protein is therefore essential.

What is protein?

Protein helps us to build and preserve muscle mass.

While already a staple of a healthy diet, when it comes to increasing rates of muscle growth, a higher intake of protein is needed. How much this will be depends on a number of factors, such as weight, activity levels, and age, but for anyone serious about bulking up and building muscle, protein supplements, shakes, bars and powders are necessary.

Why use protein supplements?

Foods such as meat, fish, eggs, legumes, beans, nuts and seeds are naturally high in protein.

In order to gain large amounts of muscle, higher rates of protein are required than can often be gleaned from food alone. Muscle grows best when subjected to short, intense burst of exercise – specifically weight training - whilst receiving high levels of top-quality protein. For athletes and fitness enthusiasts who want to bulk up with lean muscle mass, this means consuming around 3.5g of protein per kilogram of bodyweight. Given that lean chicken breast contains just 20-25g of protein, it’s easy to see how the addition of powders and supplements can help bolster the development of muscle mass.

In addition to eating certain foods, athletes and fitness enthusiasts can up the protein intake by consuming a number of different products, including:
