The panorama of food supplements for sports is truly varied and it is often difficult to choose the ones that are right for you.

First of all, quality must be taken into consideration: with so many companies active on the market, moving between the various offers can be confusing.

Then there is the price factor: are the more expensive ones actually better?

Finally, a separate discussion must be made for the type of supplement to be used.

Protein proteins are currently the most popular - among professional and non-professional athletes - and in particular Myprotein whey proteins.

This is because at a low cost - also obtainable thanks to the Myprotein discount, they combine an above average quality and greater benefits for your body. Which?

What are whey proteins

In English, whey refers to whey protein, a powdered protein mix that is obtained from the liquid obtained from the processing of cheese and which contains - in addition to other components - beta-lactoglobulins (~ 65%), alpha-lactalbumin (~ 25%), serum albumins (~ 8%) and immunoglobulins.

Whey proteins can be in concentrated or isolated formula, with different benefits and contributions that we will see below.

In general, however, thanks to their composition they are used to:

  • promote post-workout recovery
  • promote the growth of muscle mass, through protein stimulation
  • increase insulin release
  • act as a substrate for gluconeogenesis (so they help produce energy thanks to some amino acids)

Myprotein Impact Whey: the concentrated formula

Compared to isolates, concentrated whey proteins are richer in lactose, fat and minerals. Their protein contribution, however, is slightly lower (between 70% and 85%), so they are less expensive.

Their quality-price ratio makes them the ideal choice for those who need a good supplement to combine with sports or simply want to increase their muscle mass.

Myprotein Impact Whey isolate: why choose them?

Whey isolate are the proteins with the highest protein concentration: their contribution averages between 89 and 94%. However, they have less sugars and carbohydrates and are low in components such as lactoferrins and immunoglobulins.

This makes them - for a slightly higher price - the ideal choice for people with lactose intolerance.

Other protein supplements

Another noteworthy product is Myprotein impact whey gainer, which acts as a weight gain blend.

Thanks to a formulation made from 31 g of protein, 50 g of carbohydrates and 388 calories per serving, it is ideal for those with a very fast metabolism and who have difficulty gaining muscle mass.

Tastes and quantities

Whey proteins come in 40 different flavors ranging from Chocolate to Vanilla, through Blueberry, Strawberry and Without Aroma.

And what about the packaging? In the case of isolates, there are 3 different formats: Myprotein impact whey protein of 250g, of 2,5kg and of 5kg.

The isolates, on the other hand, can be purchased in packs of 1 kg and 2,5 kg, to finish with 5 kg impact whey protein.
