Are you having trouble losing weight or building muscle?
It may be time to consider taking whey protein before bed.
Research indicates that taking protein before bed helps increase muscle mass. Whey specifically provides amino acids that our body needs to build muscle.
Not only do the amino acids aid in building muscle there are a few studies that show having whey before bed helps you sleep better.
Better sleep is important because our body repairs itself while we sleep.
Growth hormone, which boosts this muscle growth and decreases fat, is elevated during our sleep, too.
So by taking protein before bed you’ll take full advantage of this spike in growth hormone and maximize muscle gains because you’re providing the amino acids that are needed for repair and growth.
The more muscle you have the more fat you can burn.
I have a little “cocktail” called The Bedtime Belly Buster or BBB that I recommend to people who are having trouble losing weight, feel bloated, or just want to increase their muscle mass.
Keep in mind, this special drink won’t work with just any whey protein. You need to use quality whey. If you drink any ole whey supplement you won’t get the best results. In fact, you could be doing more harm than good.
Here’s What I Recommend To Drink At Night:
Mix these 2 supplements together for a powerful nighttime drink that will help you build muscle and feed your body powerful nutrients.
- Vanilla or Chocolate IsaPro – An undenatured whey concentrate protein with no added fillers or artificial sweeteners. It’s low in calories, carbs, and fats.
- Isagenix Fruits or Isagenix Greens – These add flavor to the BBB without too many calories or sugar. Plus, you’ll get valuable phytochemicals that help keep hormones balanced and fight cancer.
I personally like the Vanilla IsaPro plus a scoop of Isagenix Greens.
Instructions: Drink the BBB 30 to 60 minutes before you go to bed.
My favorite way to prepare it is in a blender with 8 oz of water and some ice.
Add more or less ice depending on how thick you want it.
If you don’t have a blender just put it in a shaker cup.
I’ve even mixed it up in a cup with a spoon when I’m in a hurry.
How Does This Work
According to Isagenix the science behind the Bedtime Belly Buster is simple:
“The quality of protein is key. According to studies, whey protein not only boosts metabolism (for extra fat burning during sleep and upon awakening) and satiety (feeling full longer) but also improves postexercise overnight recovery and overall sleep. One way it might improve sleep is because it provides a good dose of tryptophan, which increases the amino acid’s access to the brain for creating serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, which converts to melatonin to regulate the body’s sleep-wake cycle.”

Take It Up A Notch
Another component that some people add to this Bedtime Belly Buster is the Isagenix Sleep Spray. According to Isagenix:
“There is mounting evidence that the quality and amount of sleep one gets can predict weight loss. The reason being that lost or mistimed sleep can wreak havoc on the body’s “central clock,” or central circadian rhythm, which can affect everything from metabolism to appetite regulation. Sleep Support and Renewal provides melatonin, production of which declines with age, as a safe way to help restore healthy sleep. Supplementing with melatonin and following advice such as getting regular exercise earlier in the day and turning off anything with a screen (e.g. computer) early in the evening can help ensure a better night’s rest.”
