What Type of Protein Supplement Should You Be Using?

What Are The Different Types of Protein Powder?

There are many different types of protein powders and they all provide slightly different benefits. So, what one should you be using? Who said you only had to pick one?

With Leo Supplements Four-Claw Whey Protein Powder, you can reap the benefits from four different types at the same time. The four types of protein that Four-Claw is made up of are whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, hydrolyzed whey protein, and micellar casein protein. All types of protein in our formula help aid in muscle protein synthesis. So, how are they different? First, let's talk about the types of whey protein.

Well, the main difference between the three whey proteins is how they're processed. Whey is the liquid part derived from milk that separates during cheese production.

Whey Protein Concentrate

Whey concentrate has about a 70%-80% protein content. Contains lactose and fat and also has the best flavor. Whey protein concentrate contains all nine essential amino acids (EAA) and particularly high amounts of the branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) that your body needs.

Whey Protein Isolate

Whey isolate has a 90% protein content or higher. Contains less lactose and fat and lacks a lot of the beneficial nutrients that are present in whey protein concentrate.

Hydrolyzed Whey Protein

Whey hydrolyzed is pre-digested so that it gets absorbed faster. Causes a 28–43% greater spike in insulin levels than whey protein isolate.

Now, Let's Move On To Casein Protein

Casein protein is absorbed by the body much slower than whey protein so this makes casein a great choice for a protein shake before bed and also curbing your hunger throughout the day for longer periods. 

Both casein and whey protein are derived from milk. Milk is 80% casein and 20% whey. 

Four Claw Whey Protein Powder contains the purest form of casein protein called micellar casein protein.
