    protein absorbtion


    does anyone know how much protein your body can absorb in a given time period....for example if i have a post workout shake of 40g's of protein and a half hour later i want to eat a can of tuna...will my body be able to absorb the full amount of protein in the tuna or is my body still digesting the protein from the shake which would make the protein in the tuna worthless?

    Typically, your body can digest approximately 20g / hr.

    well that depends, full digestion into the small intestine could be 3-4 hours. a full gastric cycle could take 24 hours. for protein digestion's sake I would say 2 hours is a good measure, gives it enough time to get through the stomach.
