Protein is the building block for muscle and, since the body can’t store excess for later as with carbohydrates and fat, consistent intake throughout the day is needed in order to keep muscles strong and healthy. But immediately after a full night of sleep or a tiring workout, the body has little to no protein available to rebuild tissue. So sync those watches and work a healthy dose of aminos into breakfast and post-workout meals to ensure the body has an adequate supply
We hear it all the time: breakfast is the most important meal of the day… with protein being a critical component. And if there’s any time the body is craving to get some much-needed replenishment, it’s after being deprived of muscle-repairing nutrients for the entire night. So wake up and smell the protein! The body is hungry, and protein is a great way to break the fast. Plus, if aiming to lose weight, consuming a high-protein breakfast has been shown to reduce hunger throughout the day.
Similarly important is our intake of protein after exercise, especially if muscle growth and maintenance is a goal. Following a tough training session, the body needs help from its friend protein, carbohydrates, vitamin and minerals to repair body tissue and start the process of building stronger, more resilient muscles. Recent studies suggest taking in around 20 grams of high-quality protein within 30 minutes after exercise gives the body the nutrients it needs to start recovery and prevent muscle loss.
Consuming a light, protein-rich snack before bed also allows our bodies to keep repairing muscles overnight
However, you cannot consume just protein after a workout, as in a protein shake or protein bar. Protein fills your stomach and helps build and repair muscles, but it does not refuel your muscles. Your muscles want three or four times more calories from carbs than from protein. Recovery is a complex process and as such needs a number of balanced fuels to ensure you
What about recovery electrolytes?
After a hard workout, many athletes reach for a sports drink, thinking these are “loaded” with sodium (an electrically charged particle). Think again! “Real foods”/natural foods are actually better sources of electrolytes than most commercial sports products. These electrolytes (also known as sodium and potassium) help enhance fluid retention and the restoration of normal fluid balance.
Recovery can start before you exercise
What you eat before you exercise impacts your recovery. According to research presented at the 2011 annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine, consuming protein before lifting weights enhanced recovery better than consuming a protein drink afterwards. That’s because your body digests pre-exercise protein into amino acids (yes, your body can digest food during exercise) and puts those amino acids right into action repairing damaged muscles. Consuming protein before working out can trigger our bodies to start muscle synthesis (a fancy name for repairing and building those guns) throughout and even after hitting the weights
|For those who are doing high intensity training – endurance athletes or body builders, or even if you are just looking for a vegetarian/vegan source of protein, organic Hemp Protein Powder is the best protein available. Hemp Protein gets absorbed faster than any other protein – 15g of organic Hemp Protein Powder is more anabolic than 50g Whey, since 2/3 of it is made up of Edestin – a plant protein only found in Hemp – it is similar to protein found in the human body. That makes it perfect for DNA and cellular growth. It also makes it easily digested, so you won’t make those awfully smelly protein gas, like you do when you drink other protein powders.
Yes, it contains some carbohydrates as well, but to obtain optimal Amino absorption, you need some carbohydrates present – hence the statement, the best protein available.
As Hemp Protein Powders become more readily available in South Africa, be aware what you are buying, as not all Hemp “Protein Powders” are created equal. Most, in fact all, Hemp Protein Powders (and here we do not mean concentrates or isolates which are created through extraction processes) are made from raw hemp ‘cake’ (when cold pressing the seed to extract oil, the residual is called ‘cake’). This cake still contains oil, fibre, EFA’s and Amino’s.
However, if you just take the cake and dry and crush it, what you get at best is a rough flour. This rough powder does contain protein, but will contain a lower % protein per serving than if you refined the cake to an actual Protein Powder.
So yes, Hemptons’ Hemp Protein Powders are more expensive than some you may find, but our Protein Powders are created from organically grown crops and then processed to an actual Protein Powder – to provide you with a healthy source of vegetable Protein – with a specific amount of Protein per serving.
2-4 Scoops (32g per serving) taken daily – mixed in fluids of your choice – prefereably first thing in the morning and last thing at night before bed.
Note, this product is a whole food (not an isolate – so it has not been chemically extracted or altered) and does not dissolve in water. It is best consumed in smoothey’s or in liquid of your choice.
Storage : Recommended to refrigerate after opening. Best consumed within 6 to 8 weeks of opening.
Looking For An Effective Protein Powder That Works?
Protein powders are the single most important addition to your diet for the development and repair of new muscle tissue after strenuous exercise..
Settling for the wrong protein powder means the difference between mediocre muscle and a sleeve-splitting physique – between feeling bloated and toxic versus healthy and fit. Let’s evaluate what you need to look at :
