A protein shake is a drink you can use to help you build muscle, improve your health or lose weight. The idea is that you are providing a convenient way to increase your protein intake, which is helpful because the body uses protein to make muscle, make neurotransmitters and repair wounds.

But not all protein shakes are made equal. It would help if you chose them wisely to get the best benefits. So read on, and we will look at how you can get the most from your protein shake by selecting the best form of protein and then turning it into a delicious smoothie!

Types of Protein

When you buy protein shakes, you will have many different options to pick from. For example, you can choose whey protein, casein protein, egg protein or soy protein.

The best option for your protein is whey protein. That is because whey, a by-product of the cheese-making process, is completely natural and healthy and can easily be absorbed into the body. In addition, whey is more bioavailable when compared to soy or casein and cheaper when compared to eggs!

The only departure from this rule is that casein may be more useful when choosing a shake to drink before bed. The reason for that is that casein absorbs more slowly. This provides a constant release of amino acids that the body can use to build muscle throughout the night.

You will also find that protein shakes come in a variety of mixtures. In addition, they come in all flavors and a wide variety of additional ingredients, such as creatine.

The best thing to do is to look for a protein shake that is pure whey, with nothing more. This will cost a lot less. Also, you can source something like creatine cheaply if you want to add it, but it will also mean you are not getting heaps of carbs, sugars and fats added to your drink so that you will be building more muscle and less fat!

Next, we need to add it all to an excellent smoothie.

Creating The Smoothie

Plain and unflavored whey is not tasty at all. However, you can fix that by adding whey to a smoothie and by adding your own flavors. For example, you can add strawberries, bananas, green apples, and other healthy ingredients. The important thing is to consider both the taste and the added health benefits that can be derived from the smoothie.

As an illustration, you can add whole milk to improve absorption and testosterone production, where applicable. Include strawberries for vitamin C and antioxidants or avocado for more healthy fats and a few extra proteins. All this will supply many additional health benefits and be cheaper and more delicious. So, go with the basic stuff and make your own mix; it is the only way to make the most of your shake!
