Protein Shakes

When You Should Drink a Protein Shake:

The best time is after your workout to help your body recover and refuel….

Protein is ideal for the repair and growth of your muscles. So whether you’re focused on building muscle or losing weight, protein shakes can help supplement your diet and achieve your wellness goals.

Why timing matters

Your body is primed after a workout to use any protein you consume. It comes down to understanding your body’s metabolism and knowing whether your body is in a catabolic or anabolic state.

If your body is in a catabolic state, this is when it’s breaking down your muscles. Your body will be in this state while you’re exercising or working out.

And then when your body is in an anabolic state — or post-workout — your body is rebuilding and refueling.

That window of time after you exercise is when your body is just a little bit more efficient at utilizing that protein to help build that muscle, versus while you’re exercising and you’re breaking down the muscle and stressing the muscle.

Whatever your goals, it’s best to focus on the amount of protein you need each day. You want to space out your protein intake throughout the day for maximum results — and adding a protein shake to your routine post-workout can be a good way to reach that target.
