Protein, derived from the Greek word meaning "Of Prime Importance", is one of the three essential macronutrients needed by our body. Protein is seen as the building block of the human body, as it is used in the formation of contractile tissue or muscle. It also makes up a large part of our cell structure. In short, it is everywhere in our body. We need protein to rebuild our cells and to grow.

Exercise can deplete our protein stores, since our bodies are able to strip our muscle proteins as energy sources. Therefore, those seeking to put on lean bodyweight need to consume an adequate amount of protein to support their lifestyles and build up muscle mass.

Furthermore, ingesting protein can lead to an increased metabolic rate in individuals. Since protein is more metabolically active than carbohydrates or fats, the process of digesting it requires 30% more calories than either both macronutrients.

However, in today's fast-paced and hectic world, it can be quite hard for many to consume enough quality proteins during the course of a day. This is where protein supplementation comes to the rescue. Simply by mixing protein powder with water, milk, juice or any beverage of choice, one can easily increase the total daily amount of protein taken per day. This results in what is known as a 'positive nitrogen balance', which facilitates in the building up of lean mass.

Protein powders, in general, are low in carbohydrates, and are derived from various sources. The current trend in protein powders are those that are derived from whey protein, which has shown to have a higher bioavailability then other protein sources such as milk, soy, or egg.
