Have you ever stood in front of a wall of protein powders in a health food store or sports supplement outlet and been completely confused?
Find out which one to purchase then here.

As the protein market has grown there has been a massive increase in the different types of proteins available in respect to ingredients & nutrient composition along with flavour variants.  Let’s look at making it a little easier to navigate through the products to find the one that best suits your needs in terms of nutrient requirements, body composition & training goals. 

Step 1 Function

To start you have to decide what nutritional function the protein powder is going to play in your daily meal plan: 
        •  Is it replacing a main meal or snack? 
        •  Are you using it pre- or post-workout for nutrient support during your session and recovery after training?
        •  Are you using it to top-up your overall protein intake to help build or tone muscles?

If you are looking at replacing a main meal then you need to look for a protein powder product that provides sufficient energy per serve provided via adequate levels of protein & carbohydrate low to moderate total fat and fortified with at least 25% RDI for essential vitamins & minerals. This will help you get the right balance of macro & micronutrients to replace a regular meal - NAZLAB Meal Replacement 24/7 Formula is an ideal formula to suit this need.

If you are looking for a powder to use pre- or post-workout you need to ensure it has adequate carbohydrates to fuel the body during exercise & replenish carbohydrate energy stores (muscle glycogen) after training.  In addition you need a formulation that is high protein and low in fat.  NAZLA4in1 and NAZLAB Pound4Pound MassGainer (also good for gaining muscle mass) are ideal products for use in & around training times when fuel in the form of carbohydrate is an important nutrient consideration.

For people looking at simply gaining lean muscle or muscle tone then look at using a protein powder with a higher protein to carbohydrate ratio.  These powders can be used pre- or post-training, as a between meal snack or at any other time of the day when protein is required. NAZLAB offers a number of suitable high protein, low fat, low carbohydrate powders including: NAZLAB and High Protein Formula.  

Step 2 Type of Protein

So the next step when looking at protein powders is to explore the different types of proteins. You may have seen names like WPI, WPC, Whey Protein, Hydrolysed Whey all thrown around – but what do these actually all mean? What are the benefits of all these different forms of protein?

Whey Protein Isolate (WPI)

Whey Protein Isolate or WPI is a protein powder that contains more protein and less fat & lactose per serving than any other protein powder derived from milk. Most whey protein isolates contain between 90-94% protein and have a fast Hydro digestion rate making them rapidly absorbed by the body. WPI also contains high levels of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), GLUTAMINE,NO-PUMP,NO SUPREME,CCE which may assist muscle recovery making WPI a great choice both pre- and post-training.

It should be noted that WPI is also the most expensive protein powder, be very cautious of purchasing a protein powder if you see it the same price as non WPI powders!
I recommend 
NAZLAB for a whey protein formula.

Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC)

Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) contains between 35-70-85% protein. It contains slightly higher amounts of carbohydrate & fat than WPI but these nutrients are still at relatively low levels and the natural sugar (lactose) level in WPC makes it more palatable. WPC powders are a great everyday protein, and because it is less expensive than WPI it is an extremely popular protein choice.
It can be used post-training as well as taken throughout the day to increase overall protein intake.
I recommend
 for a whey protein concentrate formula.

Casein Protein (or Whey Protein Caseinate)

Casein is known as a slow release protein, meaning it takes a lot longer to be absorbed & digested by the body. While this sounds like a negative it can be used to your advantage at certain times. The most common use is to allow a steady release of protein into the blood stream while you sleep to aid muscle recovery overnight.
As fast absorbing protein sources are preferable post-exercise and casein is more slowly digested it is not normally used in isolation post-exercise; however casein is a key component of protein blended products.
I recommend 
PRO-6 for a slow release protein.

Please post any questions that you have around this or let us know what type of protein you are taking currently and why and remember to join up to NAZLAB for access to exclusive content and to continue your education of sports nutrition.

SUGGESTED USE: Servings Per Container: 75-240ct GLUTAMINE 

The most abundant amino in the bodyIncrease endurance & stamina rapid recovery & fat metabolism.

L-Glutamine helps to promote lean body mass and helps to increase endurance and stamina.

L-Glutamine aids in rapid recovery after training and promotes Fat metabolism during training.

Research reveals that benefits associated with glutamine are; an increase in growth hormone levels, the prevention of muscle breakdown, an improved immune system, an increase in protein synthesis, and improved intestinal health.

Advanced Protein IGF-1 is a low carbohydrate and high in protein sustained release formula that includes Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein Isolate, Egg Albumen Protein and Miscellar Casein.

NAZLAB soy protein isolate is rich in Isoflavones. Isoflavones have been proven to increase IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor) in human subjects when taken as a dietary product.
Increased levels of IGF-1 have been shown to harbour some very positive results, particularly in males, where it has been noted to reduce hair loss, potentially reduce the risk of prostate cancer, and in conjunction with regular excersise increase muscle mass and improve recovery time.

Protein is essential for building and repairing muscle in the body, and the NAZLAB Advanced Protein IGF-1 formula will provide the very best in time release technology and rich isoflavone protein to ensure your muscle are constantly fueled when they most need it.
