Around 460 BC, Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine, started to prescribe whey to his patients for its health benefits, naming it “serum”. Today, whey protein is recognized as a protein of superior nutritional quality. It contains all of the essential amino acids needed by the body on a daily basis and contributes to growth and maintenance of muscles and bones.
While the positive health benefits of whey protein may be common knowledge to doctors, nutrition scientists and athletes trying to improve their performance, they are not as well-known among the general public.
The purpose of Wheyforliving is to inspire and ensure that discussions about whey proteins, as well as other proteins, are based on facts and science-based knowledge rather than myths or hearsay. On this site you will find articles, recipes, tips and videos for inspiration to make whey protein a part of your daily diet.
