Health Benefits of Whey Protein

Provide High-Quality Protein

Whey protein is extracted from the protein part of whey. Therefore, it is a high-quality and complete source of protein that contains all of the essential amino acids. This form is very digestible as well, making it quicker and more effective for the gut to absorb. Compared to other animal- and plant-based sources, whey protein is among the best dietary sources of protein, especially for athletes and bodybuilders. You can choose from three options: hydrolysate, isolate and concentrate. [2]
