What exactly is a Protein Shake?

The classic shake is a few spoonfuls of protein powder mixed well with water or milk accordingly.

Today, the increasing popularity of protein-packed liquids means that there are far more options available. You can opt for buying ready-made protein drinks in the market available nowadays, but again, you must make sure to check the ingredients they contain..

What is the point of consuming protein shakes after all?

Protein Shakes are a convenient way to increase your protein intake, which helps to support muscle growth and many other bodily functions. 

Remember, protein plays an essential role in muscle growth, repair and normal functioning of the muscles, thus, forming enzymes and hormones, transmitting nerve impulses throughout the body and protecting immune function. During our routine exercises, or during stress placed on the body results in these protein breakdown. The replacing protein after exercise allows our body muscles to rebuild and recover back.

The big question - Are protein shakes good for weight loss?

A lot of protein supplements available in the market help a lot in weight loss and while they certainly can help, it’s – as always – a little more complicated than that. They certainly can play a role in aiding weight loss, but it also rightly depends on the context where they are being used.
