There is no other supplement in the fitness industry that is widely consumed as protein powder. These are the top 10 protein sources found in protein powders, and the alternatives you can take to replace traditional protein powder.

These days, it’s not hard to find just the right kind of protein powder to fit your taste and needs. Whether you’re lactose-intolerant, gluten-intolerant or vegetarian, the supplement industry has it for you.

But where else can I get protein if my daily food intake doesn’t contain enough protein to maintain my active lifestyle?

Many of the foods we eat everyday contain the range of proteins our body needs to grow muscle.
