    Isn't capitalizing on the "pronounced peak" why most people consume a whey shake directly after and then eat a meal an hour later?

    I agree. This study did not include a meal...

    Dymatize Elite XT. 3 kinds of protein. Love it. Tastes great. Inexpensive . Been using it 3 years. Best low cost protein I've come by with as many benefits.

    This study seems to be pretty poor. First, look at the two charts. Compare the area where Whey protein is greater than the blend to the area where whey protein is less effective than the blend. I wouldn't be as concerned with the levels of phenylalanine as much as I would total BCAA. Also, the charts show that peak concentration of whey in the blood is about 40 minutes in. The FSR % was measured at 2 hours... This is when the blend is at its peak. If the FSR% was measured at 40 minutes, the chart would be wildly skewed toward whey having an advantage. This means that whey played a much larger role in muscle repair and hyptertrophy early on.

    Look up research by John Ivy, the ideal scenario would be to take whey protein every 90-120 minutes for a few hours post workout.

    So you're saying to take a whey shake immediately after as well as taking a shake 1.5 to 2 hours later

    yes absolutely. the only time i'd really be concerned about taking a blend, and really casein only would be better, is prior to sleep.
