Whey protein is a naturally-occurring protein found in many dairy products. When milk is made into cheese, whey protein is the liquid part of milk that is produced as a by-product. It contains many of the essential amino acids that your body needs to carry out essential processes. In the past few decades, whey protein has surged in popularity amongst those who exercise, professional athletes, or those who don't like traditional forms of protein. It is most often found in powder form, and then it is mixed with milk, water, or other drinks, such as smoothies, for a delicious drink. Whey by itself does not taste very good, which is why you will usually find many whey protein flavors to choose from.


Many studies have been done on the health benefits of whey protein. Below are just a few of those benefits.

  • Builds muscle. Whey protein has been shown to help improve muscle synthesis, which then promotes lean muscle mass. More gains in strength are seen and more quickly as well.
  • Helps with weight loss. Since your body needs protein to build muscles, it stands to reason when you are taking whey supplements, your body has more protein to build muscle. Muscle, in turn, burns more calories, which helps with weight loss.
  • Helps to reduce weight loss in people with HIV.
  • Helps to prevent allergic reactions in infants and small children.
  • Helps with muscle recovery. Whey protein has been shown to help some people recover faster from exercise.
  • Reduces the risk of eczema and psoriasis. Some studies have shown that whey protein supplements have helped to reduce these skin conditions.

Truly, the list of benefits of taking whey protein goes on and on. Studies are on-going and not everyone experiences the same benefits as others. This just makes sense since each one of us is unique.
