Perhaps the most cost-effective method to increase protein in your diet, whey protein concentrate provides the body with the ideal amino acid profile for muscle-building, strength and recovery. Because whey is also fast-digesting, it’s well suited as a post-workout nutrition source when your body needs a quick fix of protein. However, because whey protein concentrate is made from milk, it typically contains lactose—the natural sugar found in dairy products. If you’re lactose intolerant, your body will likely be unable to metabolize the lactose and show signs of allergies. If whey protein concentrate upsets your stomach, consider spending a little extra on whey protein isolate, which purifies the whey protein more and includes fewer production byproducts.
