Should you drink Bowmar Nutrition Protein Powder with milk or water?

Ultimately it doesn’t matter. Either way you drink your protein is fine, but let's go through some of the facts just so you know a little more about the difference between protein powder with milk and protein powder with water. Which one is best can all depend on your goals. For example:


Benefits of protein powder in water:

Adding protein powder to water keeps you extra hydrated throughout the day without any added calories. Water is essential for muscle function and overall performance. If you are trying to get lean or trying to lose weight, this can be a good option for you. Mixing Bowmar Nutrition protein powder with water is also the easiest and cheapest way to get your protein in. If you are on a calorie controlled diet and want to keep track of your calories, water is an excellent way to make sure you know exactly what you are consuming. Another benefit of protein powder mixed with water is that water can be absorbed instantly, especially compared to milk, which means the protein can be absorbed a lot quicker than if you drank it with milk.


Benefits of protein powder in milk:

If you are trying to gain muscle, mixing your Bowmar Nutrition protein powder with milk can be a great alternative for you. The reason behind this is that you would be consuming more calories and extra nutrients depending on the milk you choose. Milk can also help to stimulate protein synthesis more than just mixing Bowmar Nutrition protein with water.


Whole Milk: FAT 7.4g, SUGAR: 9.6g, PROTEIN: 7g, Carbohydrates: 9.4g, Calories: 122

Skim Milk: FAT 0.6g, SUGAR: 10g, PROTEIN: 7.2g, Carbohydrates: 10g, Calories: 74

Semi-Skimmed Milk: FAT 3.6g, SUGAR: 9.6g, PROTEIN: 7.2g, Carbohydrates: 8.6g, Calories: 100


Benefits of Bowmar Nutrition protein powder mixed with plant-based milk alternatives:

Mixing your Bowmar Nutrition protein powder with plant-based milk can be an awesome option for you if you are wanting some extra calories, but not as many as traditional milk provides.  There are many different options and brands, but these milks are usually low calorie. Some have added sugars, so be sure to watch out for that! Another thing about plant-based milk is that you are still getting that creamy delicious flavor that you can’t get from water. 


Basically, it is a personal preference based on your goals, how you like your shakes to taste and your diet. None of these options are better or worse than the other!
