Best Protein Powders for Men Muscle Gain

Published : Feb 22, 2022 1 mins read Updated On : Jul 26, 2022

The most important task for budding athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and bodybuilders is finding the right protein powder for themselves. A protein powder that can not only sustain the requirements of your body but also enhance its performance. This is especially important for men because even though most protein powders can sustain the protein requirements of a human body, they lack the nutrients that can boost a man’s metabolism and increase his testosterone levels, both of which are essential to building muscle.


Why use protein powder at all?

The protein intake necessary for an average, human body is 0.8-1 gram per kg body weight. To put this in perspective, 1 egg contains about 6.5 grams of protein, meaning someone who weighs 65 kgs, must maintain the protein intake of 8-10 eggs per day. An important piece of detail ignored by most people is, that this protein requirement is meant for an inactive human body. So, for someone with an active lifestyle like an athlete, fitness enthusiast, or bodybuilder, the required protein intake ranges from somewhere between 0.8 to 2.7 grams per kg bodyweight. Putting this new value in our previous example, someone with an active lifestyle must maintain a protein intake of 8 to 27 eggs every day. This kind of diet is difficult for non-vegetarians and nearly impossible to maintain for vegetarians and vegans. So, protein supplements i.e protein powder sounds like the desired alternative.

What protein powder should I choose?

While most people suggest whey protein over all other kinds of proteins, my suggestion would be plant protein. Plant protein with the right blend of pea protein, rice protein, and so on would be exactly what your body needs.


Why plant protein?

Plant protein is a lot easier to digest compared to whey protein, especially plant protein of good quality as they contain more digestive enzymes that can ensure a smooth digestive function. Plant protein is also preferable for those with lactose intolerance. Some people often face problems like bloating upon the use of whey protein.

Amongst various plant protein powders, the best protein for most men out there would be Fast&Up’s Plant Protein Man, which contains a powerful blend of super herbs and multivitamins that boost male metabolism and increase testosterone levels that in turn increase muscle strength and stamina. This protein powder contains performance boosters that make this a specially designed protein for muscle.
