Many people that work out and take protein powder use it for the building muscle part of the product however many people don’t realize that these people use it for the recovery too. Most athletes take the powder in protein shakes before and after a workout to ensure muscle development and muscle recovery. This can help the athlete work out longer and not feel as sore in the morning.
However, everyone should be aware that taking protein powder without working out can lead to some problems. Some people have had kidney and liver problems because they take a lot of the powder, but don’t actually work out and don’t drink enough water. This causes toxins to be released into your body which is obviously not good. Also, some people experience weight gain. Remember to work out at least 3 times a week if you’re taking protein powders on a regular basis.
