The 2 Supplements You Shouldn’t Train Without – Protein Powder & Post Workout Glucose
Too little protein can lead to muscle soreness and fatigue, rather than increased strength and stamina. Taking protein can, however, help the body to begin quickly healing the micro-tears in the muscle (leading to muscle soreness), a process which makes muscles stronger over time.
High blood glucose levels increase protein breakdown and reduce protein synthesis. Protein synthesis is the process where cells make proteins. These are the two most important biological processes when it comes to building muscle. Low blood glucose will steal energy and mental focus making training difficult.
Using protein powder (including plant protein and vegan protein) and post workout glucose allows your body to heal quicker, which allows your muscles to get stronger, faster. This, of course, allows for muscle building and muscle tone.
