Egg protein as a supplement can be used by anyone in need of a high-quality protein to meet daily needs and move along muscle growth. Egg protein is also good for those allergic to soy or dairy.
Egg protein stimulates muscle growth and has been demonstrated to increase muscle protein synthesis most likely from the high concentration of the amino acid leucine (major amino acid responsible for stimulating the synthesis of muscle protein after a meal).
The body digests egg protein at a rate similar to whey protein. After consumption, this rapid digestion leads to a large increase in plasma amino acids. Muscle cells are sensitive to changes in blood amino acid levels, and this rapid increase causes a correspondingly large muscle-building response.
