Protein powders give us an excellent source of protein in a powdered form. When we eat certain foods we need to eat a large volume to get the same amount of protein that can be found in just one scoop of protein powder. This doesn’t mean that protein powders should replace protein sources from food in our diet necessarily, but it does mean that protein powders can be extremely useful for those looking to get in a high amount of protein in a convenient form.
There are many cheap knock-offs that call themselves the best protein shake in the world and claim that they’re incredible for weight loss and building muscle, but can actually be harmful because they may use sub-par ingredients and an incorrect manufacturing process that damages the protein.
2017 Best Protein Powders
It appears everyone has a different way of defining the best protein powders. Some, like whey isolates, are valued by how much protein per gram they contain. Other brands seem pretty adamant that the best whey is one without artificial ingredients, and others still seem to try to add as many extra ingredients, like glutamine and taurine, as possible.
Our 2017 Top-Rated Protein Supplements is based on manufacturer reputation and trustworthiness, user reviews, documented athlete results and clinical studies.

Pro JYM by JYM
While a high-quality protein powder should be at the top of everyone’s supplement shopping list, don’t make the common mistake of buying a pure whey protein powder right off the bat. Yes, whey protein is a critical staple for muscle growth, but to truly maximize growth, you need more than just whey. You need a precise blend of performance proteins.
Each scoop of Pro JYM delivers 24 grams of pure, quality protein. It’s not “spiked” with single amino acids to artificially increase the protein content or made with cheap and inferior whey protein concentrate or caseinates. To make Pro JYM, I selected only the highest quality whey protein isolate, micellar casein, milk protein isolate, and egg white protein (egg albumin).
