The Journal of Nutrition out of the Netherlands has confirmed yet another stance on the never-ending debate regarding the specific timing of protein, and when it’s best to take especially supplemental protein to assist in recovery and muscle building/enhancement.
Hopefully I do not need to go into the importance of quality protein. I cover this in my programs heavily. If you are not using the most superior form, that of whey, and specifically the raw whey that I use and promote, then at the very least I’d be using the vegan options to help up my intake. I am absolutely convinced that most people need additional protein when it comes to fat loss efforts, to help build and maintain our fat-burning machine; our muscles.
Turns out, it’s the intake just before going to bed that is most helpful.
In this study, they were using a 27 gram serving size.
Please keep in mind the analysis that needs to happen with any study you read, ever, so that we can best determine what was really accomplished and how it may apply to us.
In this example, they did not specify the exact protein source used. We can be reasonably certain that the raw whey source WE use is superior to theirs, based on the fact that 99% of the rest of the market in this area uses inferior forms of protein, and especially as a “shake,” as they define it in their study…one can only imagine the real quality of what this drink may have been. “Shake” for me usually translates into “McDonalds liquid sewage,” likely loaded with all the crap McDonalds puts in their “shakes” that allegedly have any nutritional value at all.
OK. So that said, the study proved out over 12 weeks between a control group and supplement group that the latter had increased benefits, unquestionably so, in the area of muscle strength; literally DOUBLE the results.
Again, we do not know ALL the details, nor the individual variances.
But when results are THIS significant with two groups, both that performed resistance exercise and one that took the protein supp before bed with significantly enhanced results; it’s telling enough that I believe we can bank on the end results.
Raw whey protein is available via a link to the right of this page. I will be producing some new videos in the next month catering to the promotion of this amazing, muscle-building, detoxifying supplement, perhaps the one supplement in my arsenal I would always place at the top of my list as both a food source, as well as a health-enhancing and overall nutrition-boosting addition to my life path.
I am starting my personal YT channel this summer. It will venture outside of fat loss efforts, but still involve them from time to time. I may or may not alert you to this effort…if you are interested, shoot me an email.
Love, Happiness, Health and Peace……..Tim
