How to use protein powder by Rubina Ratnakar

Many people are involved in activities related to fitness these days. When your body isn’t getting enough of the required nutrients, you go for a lookout for supplements to complete your body requirements. One such supplement needed by your body to work out in a good manner and make your body stronger is protein powder. Everybody would have heard about protein powder but not everyone may have used it. In this blog, Rubina Ratnakar tells you how to use protein powder, its amount, and its dosage.

Our body required 2 grams per kg of our body weight. For example, if you weigh 60 kg, you need to eat around 120 grams of protein every day. This requirement cannot be fulfilled with the food we eat. Protein shakes are a great way to complete the requirement of the body.

Since there are so many options available in the market for protein shakes it becomes quite difficult for us to choose one. There are different types of protein you can use in your diet. The two main types are whey and casein. Whey protein is a popular one as it is easy to digest. It has a huge number of benefits. On the other hand, casein is a protein that is slow in action and shall be taken before sleeping if you want good results.

You may be thinking about the right way to consume protein powder and the most optimum way that will get you better results. You can mix with water and even use it with milk or any drink that is mild and known for its fitness benefits. You can even drink it with a fruit smoothie.

If we talk about the right time to drink protein, drinking a protein shake after working out is one of the best times. It would be good if you drink the shake within 30 minutes of completing your workout.

Considering the amount of protein powder to be taken, 30 g is the amount suggested by all fitness professionals.
