    Because they don't make fuzzy peaches flavored chicken. Also. Lol theirs multiple sources of protein for different reasons. Whey isolate is mictofiltered and concentrate is not. Both are 2 hour digestion proteins (how long it refeeds your muscles) eggs are 4-6, casein is 6-8. They're also more or less bioavailable. How much your body actually uses as nutrients (amino acids) to filler. Isolates are usually 90+% concentrate is 80%ish eggs 70%ish etc. Which is 100/scoop x protein. Higher is leaner. Yw

    So basically it’s isolated and Won’t create as much waste? So less poo?

    Doesn’t your body just start flushing it out after a certain point? Like what is it gonna do with all that extra protein if we already get enough?

    Your body uses protein as amino acids. Building blocks if you will. Which is all cellular repair and restructure. It can damage your liver etc using too much protein. But you'd have to be eating an absolutely horrific amount. Like a couple grams per lb of body weight lol there is usually 20 grams per scoop in a powder, and 30 grams in a chicken breast.

    How many grams can your body use per day though before it just gets peed out?

    And it depends on again, digestion rate and bioavailability

    Plus you can slow down digestion to increase absorbance. Digestive enzymes. Average person absobs 80% of nutrients anyways, enzymes bumps it up

    protein powder slows down digestion? I thought they were digested quickly? :confused: Even if you did absorb the extra protein, if your body can’t use it won’t it still just come out in urine?

    ... it depends what kind of protein for rate of digestion.... Examples were original comment.

    For it to be in your urine, it would have had to cause kidney issues which as previously said. Is taking an extreme amount.

    Your body will convert it, UNUSED protein into calories, and fat. Not into pee.

    So if using protein powder is just adding more protein than we need to our diet, it’s a waste of money and will make you fat? And once you have muscle built, you need less protein to maintain that right? So why would you keep taking extra?
