Why We Love Whey Protein
Your body needs a lot of nutrients as you transform your life, and protein is one of the most important parts of any healthy diet. At Yoli, our meal plan is centered around protein in both the food you eat and our whey protein shake. That’s why today, we’re going to talk about why we love whey protein!
First things first: what is whey protein? When cheese is made, the watery portion of milk is separated from the curds, and that watery portion is called whey. The protein in that whey can be isolated, and that’s where we get whey protein!
Protein plays a key role in your health. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues and make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. It’s the building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
Protein also plays a big role in weight management. In addition to making you feel full longer, eating protein helps your body build and maintain lean muscle, which helps you maintain a healthy metabolism. For all of those reasons, protein is one of the most important nutrients to incorporate in your diet as you work toward optimal health!
Because we’re such big fans of whey protein, we use it in the Yoli Essential Shake (YES)! YES is a high-quality protein shake that contains twelve grams of whey protein.
Whey protein supplements can be a great way to boost your protein intake, but the quality of your protein is just as important as the quantity. Many protein supplements include high amounts of sugar, artificial sweeteners, or even chemical fillers, so it’s important to consider what you’re actually consuming rather than simply looking at the protein content.
YES, the Yoli Essential Shake, is a great way to boost your protein intake because it features PuraWhey, a high-quality form of whey protein. Our whey protein is minimally-processed and sourced from grass-fed cows that are not given hormones or antibiotics. YES is sweetened with stevia, not sugar, and it contains a special blend of fruits and vegetables called LeanImmune for added nutritional value. Best of all, it’s delicious, so you’ll look forward to drinking it each day!
