In the matter of gaining muscle mass, plant protein is not inferior to animals, as research has shown. A huge number of people regularly go in for sports and lean on protein foods. Protein is known to be a building block for building muscle mass, which is why protein shakes are so common among bodybuilders. People who are not involved in professional sports prefer high protein foods, usually of animal origin. However, a new study published in the journal Sports Medicine found that a high-protein, plant-based diet is as effective in muscle growth as a diet made from animal proteins. It also gives the desired effect to people who practice resistance training for muscle growth. It is curious that earlier scientists came to different conclusions. They proved that only animal protein stimulates the development of muscle fibers. And now, the first study to examine chronic muscle adaptations from resistance training in vegetarians versus carnivores. Everyone knows that to grow muscle mass, training must be combined with protein. And if the first component of this equation does not raise questions for anyone, then the controversy over the source of proteins continues.
