Whey Protein Benefits

Whey protein has no equal when it comes to enhancing your recovery process. CBD Whey protein is an essential component for succeeding athletically, and of all protein sources, it has the absolute highest biological value (BV). BV provides a rating on the availability of protein after it has been ingested, and it can be argued that whey is also the most rapidly absorbed of all proteins, which is precisely what you need after a workout. The amino acid profile of whey protein contains the highest essential amino acid percentage, 25% of which are the BCAAs valine, isoleucine, and leucine, which are critical for muscle tissue repair. Also, whey is a rich source of cysteine and methionine, which are two essential amino acids. Natural glutathione production is also stimulated by these amino acids, which are the most potent antioxidants in the body, and a significant force in helping to maintain a robust immune system. Healthy liver function is also supported by glutathione.

Canna4 WHEY

There are 18 grams worth of 100% micro�”filtered whey protein isolate in every scoop of Canna4 CBD Whey, with no added flavoring, artificial sweeteners, sugar or fillers. Isolate is the crucial term here. Two types of whey are supplied by manufacturers: concentrate and isolate. There is a range of 70% to 80% of actual protein contained in whey protein concentrate (and, unfortunately, even less sometimes). The rest is lactose and fat. On the other hand, isolate contained 90% to 97% protein, with very little or any, fat or lactose, which makes it the purest type of whey protein that is available. Since isolate contains practically no lactose, even people with lactose intolerance find it to be an easy protein source to digest. In our Canna4 CBD Whey Protein Powders, we only use isolate.

Every scoop of Canna4Whey also contains six grams worth of glutamine, which is an incredible amino acid. There is a limited amount of space to be able to discuss all of the benefits that this amazing, multi-beneficial amino acid can provide, but it is critical for endurance athletes to support enhance immune system function and recovery. The amino acid that is most abundant in your muscles is glutamine. Glutamine is severely depleted by intense exercise, which is why supplementation is so critical. A very significant role is played by glutamine as part of the glycogen synthesis process, and glutamine also helps with repairing and rebuilding muscle tissue in addition to the branched-chained amino acids. It has also been shown that glutamine helps with raising glutathione’s endogenous levels, which is essential to immune system health. Glutamine is also a necessary component of intestinal health and contributes as well to growth hormone release.

How Much Protein Do You Need?

So how much protein needs to be consumed by endurance athletes? There have been numerous studies that demonstrate that more protein is needed by endurance athletes who are involved in heavy training compared to recreational athletes. It was once thought that 1/2 gram of protein per pound every day was enough (2/3 to 3/4 grams of protein for every pound of body weight). However, today’s standards would increase this amount to around 100-112 grams.

To determine how much you need, take your weight in kilograms and multiply it by 1.4 – 1.7, depending on what your exercise intensity level is. That will give you how much protein (in grams) you should eat every day. (to make the conversion form pounds into kilograms, divide by 2.2). Therefore a 165-pound (or 75 kg) athlete who is in high-intensity training mode needs to consume around 128 grams of protein every day.

In terms of real-life amounts, in order to get 128 grams of protein, it would be necessary for you to consume a couple of bananas (one gram each), 4 slices whole whet bread (16 grams), 7 ounces of lean chicken breast (62 grams), 3 ounces of tuna (15 grams), and one quart skim milk (32 grams).

Protein can, of course, be obtain from amounts of various foods. But not too many people consume the equivalent of 4 slices whole wheat bread, two chicken breasts, half-can of tuna and a quart of milk on a daily basis. Start tracking and recording your diet and perform some calculations. To ensure that you consume an adequate amount of protein does take effort, especially for those people who don’t eat dairy products and vegetarians. If you are coming up short, you can think about additional Canna4 Protein capsule and powder applications. If you take your health and performance seriously, then respect how important it is to provide your diet with an adequate amount of protein.
