Protein - The building material for your body
Protein or protein, in addition to carbohydrates and fats, is one of the three major macronutrients that people consume through food or supplements. In contrast to fats or carbohydrates, protein does not serve the body primarily as an energy source, but as a building material. However, protein is not a single substance, but consists of many different amino acids such as glutamine, arginine, leucine, valine and others which are linked as chains. These chains are called peptides. The shorter these amino acid chains, the faster and easier it is for the body to digest the protein. Especially this factor plays a special role in the correct selection of the protein and the appropriate time of administration. For example, Whey Protein or Whey Isolate are fast-acting proteins that are available to the body about 30 minutes after ingestion. On the other hand, casein protein is a slow source of protein that can continuously supply the body with amino acids for up to 8 hours. A mix of both represent so-called multi-component protein products. Due to the special composition, they provide the body with amino acids both in the short and long term. Athletes have a high protein requirement due to high physical activity, but also because of a larger muscle mass. This increased demand is very difficult to cover for athletes despite foods with a high protein content such as milk, eggs, meat or fish, which is why it is recommended to supplement with protein preparations such as a protein drink. The protein in the body, among other things, contributes to an increase in muscle mass, helps the body to maintain existing muscle mass and it also promotes the maintenance of healthy bones. Without sufficient amino acids in the body, an athlete risks losing performance and losing muscle.
