Meta-analysis affirms whey protein muscle benefit
October 5 2015. A systematic review and meta-analysis published on September 24, 2015 in the journal Sports Medicine concluded that whey protein alone or in combination with other ingredients maximizes lean body mass and upper and lower body strength compared to the ingestion of calorically equivalent carbohydrate or non-whey protein supplements in men and women engaged in resistance training.
Fernando Naclerio of the University of Greenwich and Eneko Larumbe-Zabala of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center selected nine randomized controlled trials that included 192 participants for their analysis. Trials were limited to those of six to twelve weeks duration. Consumption of whey protein, alone or as part of a multi-ingredient formula, was associated with gains in fat-free mass or lean body mass in resistance-trained individuals. Maximal upper and lower body strength was also associated with whey intake. The addition of creatine was found to enhance these positive effects.
