Whey protein is digested and
absorbed rapidly, stimulating an
increase in muscle protein synthesis
and a small suppression of
muscle protein breakdown.
addition, new evidence from Journal
of Proteome Research confirms
findings that whey is the most
beneficial protein powder for people
who are obese and do not yet have
diabetes. The researchers examined
how different protein sources affect
metabolism. A meal supplemented with
whey caused the subjects' stomachs
to empty slower than the others, and
had higher amounts of the specific
