As of present, there is no real data that can give us the definitive answers to these questions yet. But what we do know is that different types of protein take different amounts of time to reach the blood stream and when consumed in conjunction with fats and carbohydrates it can slow those rates down. There is also some debate over how much protein and frequency is actually needed by the body for optimal tissue recovery. Debate is still raging on those questions, however, ne thing we know is absolutely true is that we DO need protein for muscle/tissue recovery so explore and enjoy seeking new and exciting form of protein to add to your diet! (Meat and Dairy aren’t the only options for protein choices so don’t limit your choices to just these!).
