Are you aware of the benefits of Probitics when taken with Whey Protein?
Whey Protein Isolate is one of the best protein powders around that assists with muscle recovery, repair, and growth. What better wat to boost its benefits by added probiotics to the blend, such as ISO+ which contains the probiotic (Bacillus coagulans), which will help with many digestive functions.
So what are Probiotics?
Probiotics are live microorganisms that provide so many health benefits when you take them in an adequate amount. These organisms help to modulate the growth of bacteria in the gut, and also improve the mucosal barrier function.
Did you know that there are more bacteria inside your gut than anywhere else in, or on, your body? But not all of these bacteria are good. Probiotics work to decrease the growth of harmful bacteria.
When you take probiotics with rich protein sources such as the Whey Protein Isolate, they help to influence the availability and absorption of the protein (whey).
What is Whey Protein?
Whey is one of the two proteins found in dairy milk. It is the semi-transparent liquid part of milk gotten after the coagulation, curdling, and separation of cheese. Whey is highly valuable and nutrient-dense – the primary reason why we use it in protein powders for sport supplementation. To learn more about protein, read here.
Whey is one of the best sources of protein, and it has a high level of digestibility. That’s why you can find it in natural sports nutrition blends like the ISO+. This premium protein powder is now widely accepted in the fitness and active communities.
After an intense workout or training session, it is important to refuel and feed the muscles within a specific time frame, usually in about 20 minutes to 1 hour after an exercise. Whey Protein Isolate helps to supply the muscles with the needed protein and nutrient for recovery. This protein also provides other additional benefits for optimal function of the body.
The Benefits of Probiotics when taken with Whey Protein Isolate
Probiotics generally help with the digestion of protein and carbohydrates through the action of digestive enzymes such as alkaline proteases, etc. So when you take them with the Whey Protein Isolate, they produce enzymes which increase the amount of whey protein available for absorption.
More so, the proteases produced by probiotics help to increase the appearance of amino acid in the blood when then taken with protein sources. However, the fast absorbed proteins like whey show optimal result than slow-digesting proteins like casein.
Besides, probiotics when taken with whey protein isolate (WPI) helps to increase the absorption of essential amino acids (EAA), which is needed to build muscles as you exercise or workout.
Not only that but when you take probiotics with WPI, it helps to increase your sports performance. This boost is due to the ability of probiotics to aid muscle recovery through gut modulation. Studies have shown that probiotics have a beneficial effect on muscle damage, performance, and recovery after a muscle-damaging exercise bout.
A study compared the level of muscle soreness, strength, and power, perceived recovery as well as markers of muscle damage in two groups of recreationally trained males.
One group consumed protein (casein) alone, while the other consumed a blend of casein and probiotics while performing a muscle-damaging one-legged exercise. The result showed increased muscle soreness and reduced perceived recovery in the group that consumed protein alone. However, the group that received a co-administration of protein and probiotics experienced reduced pain and increased perceived recovery.
Therefore, when you take probiotics with WPI, it helps to reduce muscle damage and promote faster recovery. This recovery may help you adapt faster to training and subsequently boost your performance.
So it’s beneficial to take the Whey Protein Isolate with probiotics. It improves protein absorption and utilization, increases perceived recovery, and reduce soreness as your workout or exercise.
