A recent study on protein has revealed that protein increases endurance as well as obviously creating muscle and strength gains. The increased endurance comes from protein’s long term effect of increasing the bloods ability to carry oxygen. You’ll also be able to recover from your workout quicker. That is why a great protein supplement is so essential in order to make progress in the gym. With the many protein products out there its hard to know which ones are the best or which ones taste the best. Here are two great tasting protein products that I love and have heard great things about.
I’ve always used Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Whey protein. I love their vanilla flavor, despite protein’s reputation for vanilla tasting terrible and chocolate being the only bearable flavor. I’m not a chocolate lover and prefer vanilla, so it could just be me, but its by far the best tasting vanilla protein supplement I’ve tried. If you also add a tablespoon of dextrose it will sweeten it up while providing you with necessary post-workout carbs. Optimum Nutrition also includes a ton of amino acids such as glutamine. It’s the best protein supplement for it’s price. You get 77 servings at 24 grams of protein per serving for just $27.15, no other protein supplement is able to beat that.
Men’s Fitness gave their praise to Nature’s BestnIsopure protein. It contains 50 grams of 100% Ion Exchange Whey Protein Isolate and has zero carbs and tastes great. It also contains glutamine and is lactose free. Isopure also provides 50% of essential vitamins per serving such as Vitamin A, C, E, K, B6, B12, and various other vitamins and minerals.
