How can I grow my buttocks? 

The size and shape of your buttock is determined by the size and shape of three muscles known as the glutes. Strength training (squats, lunges, etc.) has an effect on the growth of these muscles, but only when paired with adequate nutrition.

Muscle growth can occur only if muscle protein synthesis exceeds muscle protein breakdown. This is called having a positive muscle protein balance. Strength training improves muscle protein balance, but in the absence of adequate protein intake, the balance remains negative. You must therefore eat protein if you want to build muscle.

How much protein do you need? 

The current recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for protein is 0. 36 grams per pound of body weight per day for most adults. This amounts to 70 grams per day for most American men, and 60 grams per day for most American women. These numbers can vary a lot depending on factors like activity level, age, and overall health.

Strength athletes, for instance, may need as much as 0.72 grams of protein per pound of body weight. This means that a 150 pound person who does regular strength training may need to consume well over 100 grams of protein each day! Use our Daily Protein Intake Calculator to figure out how much protein you need.

Can protein powder help me grow my glutes?

Eating enough can be challenging, especially for people with dietary restrictions and busy schedules. This is where protein powder can help. Adding protein powder to your diet is an easy way to boost your protein intake and stay on top of your fitness goals.

It is important to acknowledge that protein powder is just food. It will not help you build muscle any faster than any other dietary protein source. It is, however, one of the most convenient and versatile ways to increase your protein intake. It is also worth mentioning that no one type of protein powder is better than another. In other words, as long as you eat a balanced diet, any type of protein powder (whey, pea, egg white, etc.) can help you achieve your goals. That said, not all protein powders are created equal.


What is the best protein powder for glutes? 

Unless you have a dietary restriction or food allergy, what makes one protein powder better than another has nothing to do with the type of protein. The difference lies in the added ingredients. Most protein powders are made with a cocktail of food additives that can cause painful side effects and long-term gut health problems. 

Added emulsifiers, thickeners, flavors, and sweeteners not only cause side effects like bloating and diarrhea, but can also alter the composition and function of your gut microbiome – the community of microorganisms living in your gut. An altered gut microbiome is a leading driver of inflammation in the body. It is also unable to effectively absorb nutrients. Together inflammation and nutrient malabsorption are going to make it hard for you to build muscle and grow your glutes! This is why reading the ingredient list is so important.

When choosing a protein powder for buttocks growth, look for a short list of simple ingredients – the shorter and the simpler the better. Basically, the more your protein powder looks like real food, the easier it is going to be easier to digest. Ease of digestion is a key factor to consider when it comes to protein supplementation for muscle growth.  


Why drink wholesome

drink wholesome is additive-free.

One of the reasons why we make the best protein powder for buttocks growth is that we do not use any food additives whatsoever. This includes gums, lecithin, artificial flavors, and artificial sweeteners. Even in small amounts, these added ingredients can lead to discomfort, especially if you have a sensitive stomach.

Here is a list of the most common food additives in protein powder:

acacia gum, acesulfame potassium, artificial flavors, aspartame, carrageenan, cellulose gum, dextrin, dextrose, erythritol, gellan gum, guar gum, gum arabic, inulin, locust bean gum, “natural” flavors, maltodextrin, rice syrup solids, soy lecithin, silica, sucralose, sunflower lecithin, xanthan gum, xylitol

In simple terms, food additives are not real food, making them hard to digest. As a result, they linger in your gut longer, feeding you gut bacteria. Bacteria produce gas as they eat, which can cause bloating, flatulence, and stomach pain. Gas can also slow down colonic transit, the time it takes for food to move through your colon, leading to constipation.

Sometimes, incompletely digested food additives can cause your colon to either absorb too much water or prevent it from absorbing any water at all. This condition is known as osmotic diarrhea and might be the reason why protein shakes can send you rushing to the bathroom.

the alternative:

Protein Matrix Comprised of (Whey Protein Concentrate,  Whey Protein Isolate, Calcium Caseinate, Micellar Casein, Milk Protein Isolate, Egg Albumen, Glutamine Peptides), Polydextrose, Sunflower Creamer (Sunflower Oil, Corn Syrup Solids,  Sodium Caseinate, Mono- and Diglycerides, Dipotassium Phosphate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Soy Lecithin, Tocopherols), Natural and Artificial Flavor, MCT Powder (Medium Chain Triglycerides, Nonfat Dry Milk, Disodium Phosphate, Silicon Dioxide), Lecithin, Cellulose Gum, Salt, Yellow 5, Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium, Papain, Bromelain

drink wholesome is dairy-free.

Another reason why we make the best protein powder for glutes is that we do not use dairy-based proteins like whey and casein. Whey and casein, which are byproducts of cheese and yogurt manufacturing, contain lactose.

Lactose, the sugar in dairy, can cause painful side effects, especially for folks with lactose intolerance. Most adults actually suffer from some degree of lactose intolerance, meaning they lack the enzymes needed to digest lactose. Given what you now know about partially digested food, it should make sense why whey and casein can upset your stomach.

drink wholesome is made with real foods.

A final reason why we make the best protein powder for buttocks growth is that we do not use protein concentrates or isolates. Most protein powders contain one or both of these protein sources, which have been stripped of everything but the protein. They go through extensive mechanical and chemical processing, sometimes involving solvents like hexane. As a result, what you consume does not resemble real food.

Your gut is good at breaking down minimally-processed whole foods, not highly-processed protein concentrates or isolates. This research shows that regularly consuming ingredients like these can change the composition of your gut microbiome. Once again, an altered gut microbiome is the last thing you want if you are trying to build muscle. 

Instead of using protein concentrates or isolates, we make the best protein powder for glutes with egg whites and almonds. Minimally-processed protein sources like these are gut-friendly alternatives to protein concentrates and isolates. 

Unlike protein isolates and concentrates, egg whites and almonds contain enzymes that help you break them down. What is more, egg whites have low fiber and FODMAP content (which is good for sensitive stomachs), maintain a healthy gut pH, and have bioactive properties that support the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. In fact, our satisfied customers have reported fewer digestive troubles with our egg white protein powder compared to other protein supplements.

For those who cannot consume eggs, our vegan almond protein powder is the ideal plant-based option. Almonds are prebiotic, meaning they enhance the variety of your gut microbiome. They also promote regular and healthy bowel movements. In summary, our protein powders, because they are additive-free, dairy-free, and made with real foods, are the best protein powders for booty gains!

I am a big believer in more whole, natural food sources, rather than purchasing a product full of way too many ingredients that are unnecessary. Wholesome food is what heals and I truly love the taste, texture, and ingredients of DRINK WHOLESOME. This protein powder is one that I feel confident in the whole family consuming.” – Heather
