Whey Protein For Women

I’ve posted before about the marketing of whey protein for womenyou can read that post here.

What I wanted to demonstrate with this table is that a lot of the time the whey protein marketed for women can be quite inferior to other whey protein powder products out there.

You can see that the Dedicated Woman Whey MRP has only one type of whey protein isolate.  While this is an excellent whey protein it has a fast emptying rate out of the stomach.  That means within 20 minutes of drinking this your stomach will be empty and you will probably be hungry again.  It does have a low calorie count and low fat but it just won’t sustain you if you are trying to diet.  Using whey protein for women shakes is a great way to diet but you need something that will fill you up and sustain you until your next meal.

The Optimum Pro Complex looks like a great protein powder that could be used for dieting.  If you are looking for whey protein for women I would recommend a blend of proteins that digest at different rates.  This will keep you feeling full and help you with your diet.  The Optimum Pro Complex has a range of whey proteins, egg protein and amino acids.  These will digest at different rates and provide a sustained release of amino acids into your bloodstream.  It also has an excellent multi-vitamin and mineral component.  This helps a lot when you are on a diet and keeps your immune system healthy.
Whey protein for women is a giant market… but you don’t have to pay top dollar to get value for money.

Finally, if you insist on a protein shake that is purely whey protein, then I would have to recommend Optimum 100% Whey Protein.  It really is an excellent source of whey protein for women.  Combining whey protein isolate with whey protein concentrate they have also added extra whey peptides.  This helps boost up the protein count per serve while still keeping the calories very low.  It will be digested quite fast because it is purely whey protein but it is a far superior product over other whey protein for women products that you find on the market.

Please, don’t be fooled by the pretty pink labels.  Most of the whey protein products marketed to women and very poor in nutritional value.  If you take the time to shop around you can find some excellent products available and they come in a wide variety of flavors too.
