A high-protein diet is therefore recommended by leading nutritionists - at least 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight should be consumed by people who are not very active in sports, or between 1.5 and 2 grams per kilogram of body weight should be for athletic athletes or competitive athletes per day. The individual protein requirement can be met on the one hand through the regular diet and on the other hand through the consumption of nutritional supplements . Natural protein sources include meat , fish and dairy products ( cheese , curd cheese , etc.). Protein mixtures are available as dietary supplements, especially in the form of whey protein and vegetable protein as powder or ready-made drinks.

For the preparation of the most common protein mixture, the whey protein, whey protein is used, during which vegetable protein mixtures, for example, rice, peas or soya be prepared. Above all, whey protein mixtures impress with a variety of essential amino acids that are important for the physical regeneration processes of muscle cells and immune cells. In addition to the actual protein powder, protein mixtures are often equipped with other supplements that can have a positive effect on health.

Protein mixtures also include minerals , semi and non-essential amino acids

Among other things, protein mixtures, minerals , semi- and non-essential amino acids and short-chain carbohydrates are added for improved absorption. Protein mixtures are also available in countless flavors and can be ideally mixed with water , fruit juices or milk . Protein mixtures are usually available in bag form, container form or as a finished drink in bottles.

Use protein mixtures for muscle building and for weight loss

Protein mixtures can be ideally used as a dietary supplement for muscle building in the context of post-workout shakes . Depending on your needs, 20 to 40 grams of protein powder must be mixed in a shaker or in a glass with water, milk or fruit juice. The corresponding shake should be consumed immediately after training, since the proteins contained in it enable accelerated muscle regeneration.

Protein mixtures can also be used to lose weight . Here, shakes with protein mixtures can serve as meal replacements, for example, which are low in calories and at the same time fill you up. The macronutrient protein also has the property that it can be used well for muscle building or for heat production (around 15 percent of the protein consumed goes into thermogenesis ).

In any case, care should be taken to incorporate various protein sources in the diet in order to make them balanced and healthy (for example animal protein , milk protein as well as vegetable protein and protein mixtures in the form of dietary supplements).
