Je choisis le type d’isolat car il contient de très grandes quantités d’acides aminés essentiels et d’acides aminés à chaîne ramifiée. Si vous êtes intolérant au lactose, l’isolat de protéines de lactosérum (whey isolate) est sûr et contient les acides aminés dont votre corps a besoin pour une réparation musculaire optimale et une fonction immunitaire améliorée.
