Protein powder is likely the first supplement you think of when you think of supplements for weight training and fitness.
And for good reason...in order to build muscle, you should increase your intake of high-quality protein.
I'll be the first tell you, you don't necessarily NEED supplements to get sufficient protein in a day, however what protein supplements primarily offer you is convenience.
It's a lot faster and easier to drink down a protein shake with 20 grams of protein than taking the time to cook up a chicken breast immediately after workout.
So with that in mind, I wanted to give you my experience testing out Orgain Clean Whey Protein...
The Bottom Line:
I'm a regular user of protein powders...I've been taking them for more than 30 years.
And in that time, I've come to be able to tell the different between a good quality protein and a poor quality protein simply by how they taste and how they "feel" in my mouth as I'm drinking them.
Orgain mixes easily and with no clumps and has no weird aftertaste. It's delicious.
Orgain protein is definitely one of the highest-quality proteins that I've tried. I really like the flavor and the sourcing of the ingredients is top notch...100% grass-fed cows from New Zealand.
Because "you are what you eat" is only part of the story...you also are what your food eats.
The only thing I'm not a big fan of is the addition of erythritol (a sugar alcohol). It's used as a sweetener that won't affect blood sugar. They do use an organic source of it and as long as you don't take massive amounts of the protein at once, it should be no problem.
One other thing to be aware of is that one serving does contain 4 grams of effective carbs, so if you're on a low-carb or keto diet, you'll need to factor this in with your food intake.
None of this should stop you from using Orgain or testing it out. The overall quality is outstanding.
Other Orgain Products:
In addition to whey protein, Orgain makes a wide variety of other produts, including an organic vegan protein powder (pea, brown rice and chia protein), collagen powder, keto-friendly proteins, meal replacements, read-to-drink shakes, bars and more.
As you can see in the picture here, I really like their products and stocked up on a bunch of them (my wife loves the plant-based ready-to-drink ones because not only do they taste great, they're convenient for when she has to dash out the door to go to work). I've tried the plant-based ones and they're very tasty, too.
So yeah, definitely a fan.
This is a product I can highly recommend from personal experience.
