Protein powder allows you to increase your protein intake without having to make significant changes to your diet. You can use protein powder to make protein-rich shakes or add it to your food to enhance its protein content. Adding protein powder to your foods can help you make sure you get enough protein to maintain or increase your lean muscle mass.
