Whey protein is known for being readily available to the body and for its high essential amino acid content. These advantages make it the ideal protein after the physical strain of strength or endurance training. A supply of protein building blocks is important to accelerate protein synthesis, thus stimulating anabolic (muscle building) processes in the body.
Whey protein is naturally gluten-free. May contain traces of gluten due to being produced in an environment with other gluten-containing products.
