What does protein powder do?
Recovery protein powder provides your body with an essential macronutrient that encourages lean muscle growth and ongoing maintenance. It may also help minimise muscle loss resulting from exceptional endurance activity.
Does protein powder help with muscle recovery?
Every body is unique, so ultimately, this answer depends on the individual. However, broadly speaking, protein powder for exercise helps facilitate muscle recovery and build strength after physical performance. You will often hear of elite athletes taking low-calorie protein powder (available here) to help reduce the onset of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness or D.O.M.S.
