Protein Supplements

Suddenly going from doing no sports at all to running around 50KM a week took its toll on my health and physique. I went to look for protein supplements which also contained Glutamine or Chondroitin to give some protection to my knee and ankle joints. I found that the most reasonably priced (whey) protein supplement was Weider Muscle Fit Protein. weider muscle fit protein
Calories 73Kcal Vitamin B2 0.54mg
Protein 14.2g Vitamin B6 0.46mg
Fat 0.3 - 1.1g Vitamin B12 0.80~3.60µg
Carbohydrate 2.6g Niacin 8.0mg
Natrium 60mg Folic Acid 80µg
Calcium 300mg Pantothenic Acid 2.4mg
Iron 3.6mg Glutamine 3,000mg
Vitamin B1 0.46 Isolated Glutamine 26mg

Weider Muscle Fit Protein seemed the best because it also contained Glutamine, vital vitamin B, and a fairly large amount of calcium. Within a few weeks of taking protein supplements I started to notice that my recovery time was shortened, muscles felt less sore the day after intense workout and a quicker buildup of muscle tissue. This protein supplement powder is easily dissolved in cold water and doesn't taste bad at all. I drank some protein before doing a work out and always before going to bed at night. Taking protein supplements at night gave me the best recovery and muscle buildup results.
