When you consume whey protein powder, you need to know the difference between whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate, because it could truly mean the difference of a good body versus a not so healthy body. All right, whey protein concentrate is just like the name implies. It's concentrated whey, so it still has all the lactose, it still has all the milk solids, and it still has all of the other things that make it a milk product, which means it can be very, very hard to break down, whether or not you're lactose intolerant.

Then when we look at whey protein isolate, it also is just like the name implies. It's isolated from the whey. It's a protein that is extracted, isolated, and separated, meaning that it's much easier to process and assimilates much faster in the body; therefore, making it synthesize faster and get you results faster. If it says whey protein concentrate, step away. If it's whey protein isolate, that's going to be the route that you want to go. Concentrate, cheap; isolate, high quality. There you have it. That's your HYLETE minute. I'll see you soon.
