The Best Protein Powder for Women
Finding the best protein powders for women can be a chore. To choose the best, we need to consider what makes a protein powder the best for women. What is the ideal protein shake for a woman? Is it taste, type, texture, quality or all four? Below are some things to think about when choosing the best protein powder for women.
- Type: Whey and casein are two of the most popular protein powders for women. What makes them popular is the fact that they contain all of the essential nine amino acids needed that the body can't make on its own. Whey protein powder is known for its ability to help in weight loss and enhance muscle development. It contains ghrelin which is a hormone that stimulates appetite. This hormone is responsible for weight loss by reducing hunger. Moreover, whey protein speeds up muscle development and growth, especially inactive women, however, since whey protein is made from milk, it is not recommended to people who are lactose intolerant or vegans. Casein, which is also derived from milk digests slower in the gastro-intestinal tract. This allows for a slow but sustained delivery of protein to the body.
- Taste: Most women are very particular to the taste of protein powder. We get tired of the same flavor day after day. We know that having a variety of flavors will keep us satisfied and coming back for another protein shake.
- Texture: Some protein powder are thick and grainy, while others are smooth but too watery. The best protein powders for women are generally smooth and a little on the thicker side. This allows us to savor each shake as a delicious dessert and not a daily chore to drink.
- Quality: The quality of protein powders has been very controversial over the years. Many claims by different brands have undergone legal scrutiny. The quality of a protein powder depends on it’s bio-availability and added benefits. The best protein powder for women would not cause gas or bloat. It would also have benefits beyond just protein. This includes medium chain triglycerides, digestive enzymes, and more.
Devotion Nutrition protein powder is hands down the best protein powder for women. In fact, it was designed by women who consume protein powder on a daily basis.
Devotion protein is an 80/20 whey/casein blend as this has been proven to be the best ratio for muscle growth and weight loss. This ratio also yields the best texture and consistency.
Devotion protein powder comes in both Angel Food Cake and Brownie Batter flavors. These flavors make a great canvas for our Flex Flavors. Flex Flavors are zero calorie flavored stevia that can be added to each protein shake. These allow each shake to take on a different flavor so we never get tired of the same protein powder flavor. The texture of Devotion protein powder is smooth and thick. It’s perfect when shaken up with water, but also can be blended into a rich and thick smoothie with only ice and water.
Quality protein is what makes Devotion protein powder the top rated protein for women. Devotion only uses the highest grade protein available. We’ve also added 6 digestive enzymes to help eliminate gas and bloat that are very common in other brands.
