The Best Protein Supplements

in Protein

The Best Protein supplements are a great way to add protein to your diet easily and effectively.Protein comes in many forms but the most common and the most effective is powder as is it very easy to introduce to your diet. The only problems are that there are so many available on line and on the high street and with many containing high levels of sugar which is no good as sugar raises the insulin response so increasing fat stores within the body. So here is a few simple check points to consider when deciding on which brand to buy.

1. How much protein is their per serving

2. Is the protein supplement full of sugar check the ingredients anything below 2.0 grams per 100 grams is a good low level amount

3. What other nutrients does the protein supplement contain

But to be absolutely sure on what you are consuming I would go for pure whey protein as this is the purest form of protein. You can buy tubs with only whey protein and then you can have the convenience of adding other supplements to the mixture if you wish such as pure Creatine in my opinion it is the best way to customize you diet.

The best protein supplement bars are a great way to supplement your body building diet as you can take them any were with you. which allows you to fulfill diet requirements each day. They contain large amounts of protein and most need water to be digested properly but there are so many available which one are the best? we don't want to be consuming excess sugar and fat as some manufacturers produce some with high levels of basic fillers and sugars. Below is a simple check list to follow when choosing your protein supplement bar.

1. The price for the best protein supplement bars should never be low as developing these bars aren't cheap and making them tasty is a lot of hard work so go for the more expensive ranges.

2.

Another method is to simply look at the ingredients and look for the quantity of protein most protein supplement bars state the amount on the front packaging. Check for fats and sugar contents and go for the lowest amount as sugar raises insulin levels which converts sugar to fat within the body.

3. As for flavors a general rule is the most basic of flavors such as chocolate are the best although I have seen a few different flavors such as peanut butter and apple pie and these are very tasty. 'although the flavors say chocolate, they don't contain any'.

4. For the best protein supplement bars you can buy them in bulk as you will save a lot of money. I have also found some big companies, that release new protein bars with huge discounts. keep a look out and just buy the whole box.

There are also protein supplement bars that claim to replace whole meals and they need to be drunk with a lot of water. I find they don't satisfy and only messes up the stomach, because it feels like you have missed a meal. Great if your busy, but if you eat regularly then you may get into a bit of trouble.
