Protein is the most fundamental component of healthy human cells. (1) The amino acids from dietary protein have numerous essential roles throughout the body, such as building and repairing bodily tissues, maintaining a healthy immune system, supporting metabolic functions, and supplying energy. (1)
When protein intake is low, or the proportions of amino acids consumed through the diet are unbalanced, it can impair many aspects of health, leading to reduced muscle mass, hormone imbalances, low immunity, increased oxidative stress, weakened skeletal structure, and much more. (1)

The nutritional value of dietary protein is based on its digestibility and proportions of amino acids. (1) Whey protein is a highly bioavailable source of protein that is quick to digest and absorb. It provides an excellent balance of essential amino acids and contains higher levels of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) than those found in other structural animal proteins. (2) This is relevant because BCAAs, such as leucine, isoleucine, and valine, activate protein synthesis and play important roles in building and repairing body tissues. (2) Meta-analyses of randomized control trials have found that BCAAs reduce both muscle soreness and damage following exercise, especially if taken for a longer period (at least 10 days) and if taken prior to the exercise. (3,4)

Whey is high in bioactive protein microfractions, including lactoferrin, immunoglobulins, and lactalbumins, which contribute to immune function and metabolic health. (2,5) Alpha-lactalbumin is one of the predominant proteins in whey and contains high levels of the amino acids tryptophan and leucine. It has been shown to generate a threefold increase in blood tryptophan levels in the hours after consumption, providing the potential to improve sleep, enhance mood and cognitive function during stress, and contribute to many of the health-enhancing roles of whey protein. (7,8)

In addition to eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly, supplementation with a minimum of 20 g of protein has been shown to help reduce muscle wasting in aging and sick populations. (2,5) In a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial, healthy men aged 55–75 years old were supplemented with 30 g of either whey protein isolate or soy protein, one hour after exercise. Those who consumed whey protein isolate showed a 46% reduction in rate of muscle protein breakdown and a 67% increase in rate of muscle protein synthesis. (5) In addition, a randomized trial using whey supplementation compared to a placebo showed improvements in older women’s muscle mass, strength, and functional capacity while starting a resistance training program.
