Proteins are a very essential part of the human diet because they are vital for the body's metabolism as well as the multiple cellular processes. For years nutritionists, fitness experts and diet creators have been explaining the benefits of protein in our diet. Unfortunately most people do not get enough protein in their diet which can cause limitations on how the body functions and its ability to produce energy. This lack of protein is due to the increase in consumption of carbohydrates, which are essential to health as well but in plenty can lead to fatness and in the long run diseases. Although protein is normally taken in through the food products, but in recent years a new supplement advertising Whey Protein has caught the interest of bodybuilders, nutritionists and people who want to lose weight.

Whey protein is a collection of globular proteins that is extracted from whey. When cheese is manufactured from cow's milk, whey is the by-product. Whey contains a mixture of lactose in water, minerals and lactalbumin. The fat is extracted to leave whey protein. Whey protein naturally becomes bioactive when introduced to the body. Bioactive proteins are capable of functioning more efficiently due to their increased number of amino acids. Although there are several benefits to consuming whey protein, it is important to follow the directions when taking any whey protein supplement.
