The best time to take protein is after the gym and when you wake up. It contains whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate and hydrolysed whey making it a blend of protein.
A blend of protein is great for during the day as when you take some in a morning it will help drip feed your body though the day and keep your body elevated on amino acids. These help with preventing our muscles from being broken down often known as catabolic state.
It can be mixed easily and is a very smooth protein supplement. It tastes amazing too. It comes in some of the best flavours and you have a whole lot to choose from.
