Proteins are molecules that consist of one or more chains of amino acids. They are a structural component of muscle and other tissues in the body. Number of investigations involving strength and endurance athletes have shown that exercise increases the protein and amino acid need. Many studies are showing that bodybuilders need to ingest from 1.2 to 2.0 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight daily, for maximal muscle hypertrophy to occur. Whey has the highest biological value, thus being superior to both milk and casein, while casein forms a gel or cloth in the stomach which results in sustained release of amino acids.
