Learn the top three benefits of taking protein supplements:
1. Repairs Damaged Tissue
The number one benefit of taking a protein supplement is to make sure that your body can repair damaged tissue and lean body mass after you’ve been training. The whole purpose of training is to have a goal in mind. If your goal is to put on lean body mass and get more fit, then you’re going to need the body to have the proper tool it needs to repair. A lot of people think that you actually grow in the gym or when you’re actually training or when you actually develop your results but in fact, it’s the recovery process. And a large part of the recovery process is actually providing the body the proper tools it needs for actual repair.
2. Improves Sports Performance
The second thing which is really important for protein supplementation is that it improves sports performance as well. Playing off the first one, if you are actually getting the benefits from training and getting lean body mass, obviously you’re going to have increased sports performance. So if you want to run faster, jump higher, ride faster on the bike, ride bigger hills on the bike as well, you want to make sure you’re taking enough protein so this way you can actually be able to develop that lean body mass and all that to make you excel at your sport.
3. Increases Energy
And the other one is the increase in energy. I take an essential amino acid called Perfect Amino 20 minutes before I work out and I can tell the days that I do take it and the days I don’t take it. About 15-20 minutes into my workout I have a significant amount more energy because the protein in it is actually 99% utilized by the body, it takes about 20 minutes for it to kick in. I notice a significant amount of more energy during those workouts.
