Whey Protein Concentrate and Its Benefits 

Whey protein concentrate is probably one of the best known supplements on the market today. If you have been considering jumping on the fitness bandwagon, we can certainly advise to take a look at Whey protein concentrate. Below, you will find more information about Whey protein concentrate as well as its documented benefits.

What Is Whey Protein Exactly?

When we refer to whey protein, we basically refer to a complex protein consisting of smaller protein fragments. These protein fragments usually include substances such as beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, immunoglobulins, glycomacropeptides and many others. Each of the smaller protein fragments in whey protein has its own biological function, therefore contributing to the fitness of the consumer.

Does Whey Protein Have Other Benefits Than Muscle Growth?

Yes, because anti-ageing and longevity minded people have also joined the whey protein trend. Studies have shown that whey protein could have the ability to reduce the risk of cancer, help fight HIV, reduce stress, increase serotonin levels in the brain, improve the liver function and so much more.

One of the major functions researchers have discovered with whey protein is the ability to raise a substance called glutathione (GSH). Glutathione is a substance that is vital to the immune system, considering it plays a direct role in the functioning of this system. GSH stands in close relationship with lymphocytes, which are an important part of the immune system.

The presence of GSH makes lymphocytes more reactive, subsequently improving the function of the immune system itself.
Oxidative stress is another problem many athletes face and that could be combated by using whey protein; this has everything to do with the GSH levels in the body. By having higher levels of GSH, muscle fatigue is decreased and athletes are able to train longer and harder, at least according to the latest additional research that has been done in this field.

What Is Whey Protein Concentrate?

The latest whey protein concentrate supplement releases usually contain anything between 70%-80% protein, but with a reduced amount of lactose and fat. By reducing the amount of lactose and fat in the composition of whey protein concentrate, athletes having trouble digestion lactose can still enjoy a dairy-based protein supplement. Of course, the reduced fat also has benefits for people wanting to lose weight, since the use of the supplement will not pile on the fat.

Whey protein concentrate contains less protein than an average isolate supplement. However, concentrate does offer athletes a number of interesting nutrients that cannot be found in the isolate version.

When looking for a whey concentrate supplement, athletes should always look at the levels of growth factors. In general, the higher the levels of growth factors such as IGF-1, TGF-1 and TGF-2, the better it could be for your training results. Whey concentrate supplements with a considerable amount of these growth factors tend to contain a variety of phospholipids and bioactive lipids, but also more immunoglobulins and lactoferrin.

The additional nutrients that can be found in whey concentrate do not have a direct impact on muscle growth, but they have shown to be good for additional functions in the body; this includes the immune system as well as digestion.

Which Athletes Are Better Off with Whey Protein Concentrate?

In most cases, athletes will choose their supplement to obtain a specific goal. Therefore, each protein supplement will have definite functions and be suitable for a specific type of athlete. In the case of whey protein, athletes watching the amount of fat they consume in their diet might get the most benefit, considering the total amount of fat in concentrate is considerably lower than most other protein supplements.

When Should I Use Hydrolysed Whey Protein?

Some athletes may suffer from digestive distress when they consume supplements on a regular basis; this is usually due to an inability to digest the supplement itself. When this happens, it could be a good idea to determine the source of your digestion problems and look for alternatives. Fortunately, there are many non-dairy based formulas and formulas with smaller protein that may be worth considering.

Hydrolysed whey protein tends to be a good option for athletes with a sensitive stomach or irritable digestive tract. If you find yourself struggling to digest a supplement that is of a non-hydrolysed nature, you may want to consider the hydrolysed protein version instead. Hydrolysed protein supplements contain protein fragments that are considerably smaller than other supplements, making the supplement itself a lot easier to digest.

Why Should I Choose Whey Protein Concentrate Over Other Supplements?

In addition to the benefits of whey concentrate, the supplement is also recommended for athletes who need to stick to a specific budget. Whey protein concentrate is still considered as one of the most affordable yet effective protein supplements on the market today, so if you are on a tight budget this may be the best option for you.

Why Should I Choose ND Whey Protein Concentrate?

ND Whey Protein Concentrate has plenty to offer thanks to the use of ultrafiltered Australian WPC, a production method that incorporates semi-permeable membrane technology to increase the bioavailability of the supplement. ND Whey Concentrate is also high in branched chain amino acids, which assist with muscle growth as well as muscle repair.

The nutritional values of each flavours may vary when you compare them, although the differences are quite minor and tend not to have an impact on the effectiveness of the product.
