WHEY PROTEIN STIMULATES PROTEIN SYNTHESIS BEST

High-protein meals stimulate protein synthesis, even when you are not weight training. Including protein with each meal is important for athletes.

Dutch researchers found that whey protein stimulated post-meal protein synthesis better than casein or casein hydrolysate. Whey protein is digested and absorbed faster than other proteins and has a high leucine content. Leucine activates the mTOR pathway, which is a series of chemical reactions in cells that initiates protein synthesis. Whey protein is an important dietary component in athletes trying to increase muscle hypertrophy.
