Protein powders in comparison

Overview of SPONSER protein powders

Protein fulfils many physiological functions in the body. Proteins not only play a decisive role in the development, maintenance and recovery of muscles. They are also present in the entire structure of the human body: in the skin, in muscles, nails, bones, ligaments, and other tissues. Hormones and enzymes also consist mainly of protein.

Why is it necessary to consume protein in food?
Protein is formed from chains of amino acids. These are distinguished as non-essential and essential. The human body cannot produce the latter itself, so they must be supplied through food. Some amino acids are also regarded as conditionally essential (formerly semi-essential) because the body cannot produce them sufficiently by itself in certain situations (e.g. in childhood, during healing processes or growth).

Who benefits from an increased protein intake?
Because proteins play a central role in muscle building, it is obvious that during intensive physical training, such as strength or endurance exercise, the protein needs increase. However, proteins are not only important in strength training and in the recovery of endurance athletes. They also play an important role in weight loss: a protein-rich diet, thanks to its satiating effect, helps to save calories and achieve the desired weight more easily. People who are active in fitness, strength and endurance sports benefit from an increased protein intake compared to general intake recommendations.

Which protein for which purpose?
It may be relatively difficult to cover one's increased protein requirements solely through the general diet. For this reason, SPONSER® offers a wide range of high-quality protein preparations in various dosage forms: powder, bars, shakes, mixable, ready-to-drink, lactose-free, vegan, etc. Depending on individual preferences and situational needs, the most appropriate protein powder can be chosen accordingly.
