So for those reasons - and a really low price point at Wal-Mart - I grabbed a jug of Body Fortress Whey Protein. Of course, it's the "Super Advanced" version.
What's common with whey protein these days is that it's not just protein...you're getting a bunch of other weight builder goodies that are supposed to convert a tubby master man into the Incredible Hulk:
"Body Fortress® Super Advanced Whey Protein features a scientifically designed Super Recovery Blend to further enhance the benefits of our premium Whey Protein Blend. Each scoop provides high quality creatine in combination with the important amino acids crystalline taurine, glutamine, leucine, isoleucine and valine."
I'm not going to go all hard science on you here, but what we have is amino acids, which are supposed to assist in breaking down the lactic acid built up in your system after exercise and creatine, a body-builder supplement that supplies energy to muscle cells.
I'm doing a frothy shake with this stuff each morning after my gym or trail run. Let's hope it's going in and doing good things. Is more, better? I'll let you know over time.
