It really depends on how active you are, but the general recommendation is half a gram of protein per pound of body weight per day. That includes protein from both food and supplemental sources.
Whey protein is a by-product of cheese production. During cheese production, milk is separated into two parts, curds and whey. While the curds are used to make cheese, the whey is processed down into a powder form. The resulting whey protein powder is a complete protein, which means it contains all of the Essential Amino Acids our bodies require for muscle maintenance and growth.
To obtain the highest quality raw materials, we source our whey protein globally. As you learned above, since whey protein is made from milk, all of our whey protein started out as milk from a dairy farm. trusource products are made in company owned and operated facilities right here in the USA
If mixing with a spoon is not working for you, try using a shaker cup. They are available at most health food and sports nutrition retailers. Should you want to make a smoothie using trusource products, we suggest using a blender.
trurusource products are ideal to use both before and after exercise, but our products are versatile enough to be used any time. If you have trouble falling asleep after consuming caffeine, you may want to limit your Protein+Energy or ProteinJava consumption in the afternoon and evening, as these products contain caffeine.
A serving of Protein+Energy contains 75 mg of caffeine and ProteinJava has 70 mg of caffeine. Both are about what you would get from an 8-ounce cup of coffee.
If you are lifting weights in an effort to build muscle size and strength, protein can support those efforts. Even though everyone responds a little differently to exercise, the consumption of protein alone will not make you grow big and bulky.
That is pretty much up to you. While cold water and skim milk both work well, beverages like almond milk and coconut water are also options. We suggest avoiding carbonated and warm/hot choices.
