Protein is vital to our ability to repair, maintain, and grow lean muscle tissue. But protein isn't just crucial for muscle tissue.*
It also aids injury recovery and is involved in the production of enzymes, hormones, and neurotransmitters.*
And, while we technically could get all of our protein from whole foods (chicken, beef, eggs, etc.), many individuals don’t have the time, patience, or desire to prep, cook, and eat all the protein required to keep supporting the body’s needs.*
That’s where having a high-quality protein powder comes in handy.*
What Are the Benefits of Protein Powder?
Protein powders offer a convenient, affordable, and delicious way to reach your protein requirements.*
Steel Whey® uses 100% whey protein concentrate (WPC-80), the highest quality concentrate available.* Whey protein offers high bioavailability and a rich amino acid profile containing all the essential amino acids needed to support muscle growth and recovery.
Steel Vegan™ combines four different plant-based protein sources, including pea isolate, watermelon seed, pumpkin seed, and sunflower seed, to deliver 20 grams of protein per serving to help build lean muscle.* Additionally, Steel Vegan™ provides a complete profile of essential amino acids and 4 grams of naturally occurring branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) per serving to support muscle recovery.*
Protein powder also helps improve satiety and supports weight management, among other benefits.*
What Makes a Quality Protein Powder?
While there are many available protein powder options on the market, the best ones utilize protein sources that have a high bioavailability, meaning our bodies can efficiently digest and absorb the amino acids present in them.*
Who Should Use Protein Powder?
Protein powders can be used by any individual looking to supplement their protein intake, from the pro-level physique competitor to the field sport athlete to the casual fitness rat.*
Both Steel Whey® and Steel Vegan™ can help assist with any goal, be it performance, muscle growth, or fat loss.*
They can be used as a pre- or post-workout shake, and it can be used as a low-calorie, high protein snack any other time of day as well. *
But that's not all, protein powder is incredibly versatile, and it can be used in smoothies, pancake/waffle batters, or baked goods (cupcakes, cookies, or protein bars).*
