To Protein Or Not To Protein?

Best Supplements For Building Muscle

Do you ever experience the following:

  • Low energy
  • Just plain don’t feel good
  • Not happy
  • Feeling depressed

Your fitness level can have a direct effect on how you feel. Consider how your life might change if your list looked more like this:

  • Lots of energy
  • Generally feel pretty good
  • Cheerful
  • Hope for the future
  • Pleased with body image

A HUGE part of fitness is muscle. Muscle is miraculous. It helps you burn fat and efficiently process your nutrients. What can really help you build muscle?


Protein is important, but so is what kind of protein you eat and WHEN you eat it.

Protein has so many benefits. For starters, it is more satiating than fats and carbohydrates. In other words, it helps you to feel satisfied, or "full." Because it is more satiating, it can help you to consume less calories than you might otherwise consume.

Furthermore, protein is going to help you get stronger and gain muscle mass. With more strength and muscle mass, you will be able to more efficiently metabolize the calories that might otherwise be stored as fat.

But, you don't want to just go around drinking protein shakes at all times of the day. There is a time and place that is most beneficial. I recommend drinking a slow digesting protein like casein each night right before you go to bed.

Why? Why casein and why at night? How would it help me?


Exercise that cause your body to increase muscle mass is frequently called resistance exercise. This kind of exercise cause protein synthesis to increase and muscles to break down for more than 24 hours after the exercise is finished. You'll want eat a meal with good protein, or consume a protein supplement, during this recovery. If you don't, your muscles will breakdown faster than protein synthesis occurs and you will actually lose muscle mass.

But, the body is a magical thing. It doesn't do the exact same things at all times of the day. In fact, your body has a little secret that it hides from you each and every night. While you are cozy in bed snoring the night away, it is busy recovering from all the stresses and labors of the day.

To maximize your recovery and to get the most out of your protein supplementation, you ought to try drinking a slow digesting protein at night right before bed. This gets the protein into your system when your body needs it most. You're body will utilize this protein to build your muscle and recover. The benefits of bedtime protein supplementation include faster recovery, better muscle gains and less muscle soreness. At nighttime, casein is one of the best supplements for building muscle.
