Whey Protein May Help Build Muscles
March 15, 2017 -- Eating whey protein may help build muscle mass even
if the dairy substance is taken a day after a workout session, a new
Researchers at McMaster University in Canada and the University of
Nottingham in England recruited 15 young men, all experienced in performing
The participants underwent testing to measure the rate of muscle building
under two conditions: after eating 15 grams of
at rest and 24 hours after a round of resistance exercise.
During the exercise portion of the study, each participant performed these
activities: lifted a heavy load on a leg extension machine until fatigue; a
light load until fatigue; or a light load in which the workout session was
stopped before fatigue set in.
After a Workout:
Each man returned to the laboratory 24 hours later and ate 15 grams of whey
protein, a common dairy constituent.
Results indicate that regardless of the type of exercise load, muscle
building increased after eating whey.
The findings suggest that muscles may make better use of dietary amino
acids eaten 24 hours after exercise, regardless of exercise load as long as
the exercise is being performed until fatigue.
The researchers say their findings suggest insights about how exercise can
provide benefits to lean muscle mass growth and maintenance.
The study is published in the April 2011 issue of The Journal of Nutrition.
