Why Native Whey Protein Isolate is better than Protein Concentrate

When you walk into a supermarket or health food store, you are confronted by rows of products and powders promising weight loss or lean toned muscle. It can get a bit confusing picking the best one for your needs, as well as understanding how it’s prepared and the ingredients used to make it. There are some key factors to consider when deciding on the right protein supplement for you.
