Protein shakes used to be viewed as a drink that only heavy weightlifters would take after a big workout, but that is no more. With an industry in Britain that is worth £650 million a year, it is used by most fitness people that exercise regularly.
The body requires large amounts of protein as part of its balanced diet, once absorbed into the body through digestion; protein breaks down into various amino acids which are then built into new proteins to help make red bloods cells and building muscles. So after a workout this is very much needed to help your muscles recover and grow.
