Working with Brian St. Pierre from Precision Nutrition. I created this guide for Life by DailyBurn to help you sift through the garbage that is sports supplements and choose a protein powder that is actually effective.
Walk up and down the aisles of any major supplement store, and you’re bound to feel overwhelmed by the variety of protein powder available. Sources range from whey to soy to pea (yes, pea as in the vegetable), and come in flavors like “Rocky Road,” “Birthday Cake” and “Extreme Milk Chocolate” (not to be confused with “Double Rich Chocolate,” of course). On top of it all, buyers are presented with premium options like “hydrolyzed” and “isolate,” which come with a considerably higher price tag.
