Proteins are one of the 3 fundamental macronutrients, they have numerous functions in the human body and are indispensable for protein synthesis, muscle growth and plastic function.
In the context of sports supplementation, protein supplements play a fundamental role in enabling athletes and sportsmen and women to achieve their protein requirements, which are often very high and vary according to body size and training. They are also an important source of amino acids, both essential and branched, and can be obtained from both animal and plant sources. Various scientific reference societies, such as the American College of Sports Medicine, recommend a protein intake of between 1.2 and 2g/kg bw/day for athletes, even reaching quotas of 2.2-2.5g/kg bw/day for power sport or body building athletes, as opposed to the recommended amount for healthy sedentary people (0.8g/kg bw/day). Obviously, these variables are subjective and also depend on the duration and intensity of sporting activity.
