Yup you guessed it, whey isolate is the best muscle building protein. Why though? Wasn't whey concentrate the big thing a little bit ago? How does the concentrate differ from the isolate? Great questions.
Whey isolate is different because it is the more filtered version of whey concentrate. What does that mean? That means your body does not have to digest it as much as it does the whey concentrate.
