Whey To Play Better
antioxidant helps reduce inflammation, support detoxification, strengthen immunity, speed healing, decrease signs of aging and prevent disease.
HOW TO INCLUDE
Go low and get lean by supplementing at least 25 grams of whey protein before, during or after your round. Pack a protein shaker bottle and a serving of whey for a quick snack at the turn. Whey powder mixes well when added to water, yogurt, veggie juice or an electrolyte beverage.
Not all whey is created equal. Many whey products are processed in way that denatures the protein. They can also have lots of hazardous chemicals, preservatives, GMOS, refined sugars and artificial sweeteners. For maximum nutritional benefits, select a high quality brand of whey that’s minimally processed with few ingredients and preferably from hormone-free, antibiotic-free, grass-fed cows/goats.
Although whey protein is low in lactose, it may still affect individuals with lactose intolerance and should be avoided by those with allergies to dairy proteins. For similar benefits try Paleo Protein made from grass-fed beef.
