Whey protein is king when it comes to initiating protein synthesis and improving body composition, and with a few small tweaks it can be an amazing catalyst for muscle recovery as well. New research published in theJournal of the American College of Nutrition showcased the results of combining whey protein with the leucine metabolite beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) and isomaltulose, a slow-releasing carbohydrate typically used by endurance athletes. A group of resistance-trained men ingested this combination before, during, and after three days of intense workouts. Subjects who drank this concoction experienced less soreness, reduced markers of muscle damage, and improved athletic performance.
