Whey Protein vs Casein Protein - Which is better ?

"Which is better ? Whey or Casein protein ?" This is one such question that seems to be asked often .
However instead of asking which one is better in general, we should ask which one is better for certain situations or time.

WHEY PROTEIN is a fast digesting protein powder that is absorbed by the body quickly, meaning that whey protein might be better suited to have either before, during or after workouts as it supply amino acids to your muscles very quickly. Whey is a lean source of protein i.e it neither has any fat nor any carbohydrates in it. 

CASEIN PROTEIN is a slow digesting protein that normally takes 5-7 hours to digest, meaning that casein might be better to take before bed, as it will continue supplying amino acids to the muscles while you sleep and help in muscle recovery, which is good because when sleeping, you are going a long time without food,However your body requires protein so that it can recover the muscle. 

So, simply put , one is not better than the other overall. But one may be better than the other depending on the situation. So if it's around pre/intra/post workout, go with WHEY. If you're about to go for a longer period of time without food or protein intake , you should take casein protein. 

Also, let's remember that PROTEIN POWDERS ARE NOT MAGICAL ! Its simply a convenient way to up your protein intake and meet your daily protein requirement.

About Me

My photo
“Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.” My fitness journey started in 2015 when i completed my graduation, I was an underweight guy with a weight of 49 Kg and standing 5ft 10inch. Before 2015 for almost 5 years I was taking medicines on daily basis due to tapeworm in my brain which, the continuous consumption of medicine made my liver weak and this effected my growth. After finishing my degree ,I finally decided that I need to fix myself. Then I started working out and it changed my life. I didn't wanted to go to gym as i was skinny guy and lacked confidence, So I started with home workout (push ups pull ups) . I red articles, magazines, videos just to learn how to grow. In just 8 months without any coach or nutritionist I gained 20 Kg. This boosted my confidence a lot. Now Today I weigh 73 Kg a fit lean guy with max for Deadlifts: 330 lbs (2 Reps) Squat: 242 lbs (6 Reps) Bench: 209 lbs (6 Reps) I am still learning a lot and want to share what I have learned during my fitness journey. Lets learn and grow together.- love and peace
