There are few points when it is best to take a protein supplement:
•Right after a workout - This is when your body goes into a stage of recovery and growth. Having the amino acids that make up the protein is key at this point.
•First thing in the morning - Because your body has just gone though 8 hours (or however long you sleep for) of not having food - so the protein levels are way down.
•Before you go to sleep - This helps prevent the protein breakdown that naturally occurs when we sleep. If you are not trying to build muscle mass then this protein breakdown is fine. But if you are working out - you want to try to minimize any losses you suffer when you sleep and your protein metabolism slows down.
