Athletes train physically to reach beyond their potential maximum aerobic threshold. However, due to declines in muscle performance, sports injuries and fatigue, athletes seek ergogenic aids to enhance performance and recovery. Whey protein supplements (WPS) are often used by athletes in conjunction with physiotherapy and psychotherapy to regain muscle performance and enhance the recovery process. However, some clinical evidence suggests that other protein supplements are better than WPS. My research uses systematic review and meta-analysis approach to draw a single conclusion on the efficacy and safety of WPS as compared to other protein supplements on performance and recovery among athletes.
