Dairy Proteins Enhance Muscle Growth after Exercise, Research Shows

Feb 23, 2011

A recent review of the latest science examining the impact of dietary protein and strength training on muscle growth is featured in the January research report from the National Dairy Council. The review concluded that not all proteins are created equal. Dairy proteins, especially whey protein, enhance muscle growth when consumed after strength-training exercise.

The report also features a recent cross-cultural study that considers what motivates young adults to choose calorie-reduced dairy products. The full report is available here.
