The Benefits of Protein Supplements for Muscle Growth and Recovery

The Benefits of Protein Supplements for Muscle Growth and Recovery

Want to build muscle? Eat more protein. Want to maintain mass during a cut? Eat more protein. Looking to lean out for the summer? Again, eat more protein. Protein is the ultimate macronutrient when it comes to supporting your muscle growth and recovery. However, it’s tricky for people to eat enough protein throughout the day. Put down the sad-looking unseasoned chicken breast and opt for a protein shake from MooreMuscle. Here are some of the benefits of protein supplements for muscle growth and recovery. 

Why Protein Supplements are Important

First off, protein is made up of amino acids — the building blocks of muscle tissue. When you crush those weights at the gym, you create micro-tears in your muscles. Even if you’re spending time doing cardio like running or cycling, you’re still using those muscles to propel you forward. Protein swoops in, repairing those tears and building new muscle fibers. That fiber repair makes you stronger and builds the muscle (aka helps make you more shredded). 

But here's the kicker: not all of us can consume enough protein through our regular diet alone. This can also be especially tricky for those who don’t eat a ton of meat or opt for vegan and vegetarian lifestyles! That's where protein supplements come in. They're like a handy sidekick, providing that extra boost of protein to meet your body's demands.

Protein supplements offer several benefits, including convenience and easy absorption. You can toss a protein shake in your gym bag and chug it down right after your workout, giving your muscles the nutrients they need to recover and grow. The right protein shakes can also taste great instead of chalky. We’ve got a killer Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel flavor that’ll knock your sweaty socks off. Even if that doesn’t sound good, we’ve got vanilla, chocolate and other protein powders that’ll make you say “yummmm”. Vegetarians and vegans should opt for a plant-based protein source, but everyone else should be looking for quality whey protein if they can to get the most protein per scoop possible.

What to Look Out for in Protein Supplements

Now, we all know that protein is the foundation of muscle growth and recovery. It's the mighty Hercules of nutrients, repairing and building those muscles after an intense workout. However, not all protein supplements are created equal. Some companies are more focused on flashy marketing gimmicks than delivering the real deal. In short, if what a company is promising is too good to be true, it likely is. 

Look for companies that clearly state the protein content on their labels and provide third-party testing to back it up. You should also keep in mind the longevity of the supplement company. A lot of newer companies are like flashes in the pan. They’re here today, gone tomorrow. You deserve supplements from a company that knows what customers like and have spent years perfecting it.
