Naked Whey 100% Grass-Fed Whey is a very fine powder and if you are not careful while making your shakes, the powder will get everywhere. Also, if you think that you haven't received your scoop, well, it has sunk down to the bottom of the container.
Like all other whey supplements, if taken alone, it digests quickly - which is great right after workouts, but not so for daily shakes and smoothies.
Naked Whey 100% Grass-Fed Whey can be used in Post Workout Meal (PWM) shakes, or for making various daily shakes and smoothies with other foods like fruits, oats, yogurt, juice, milk, almond milk, etc.
If you need a protein supplement for bedtime protein shakes that digests really slowly, consider taking casein protein powder and not whey protein powder.
If you are not sure which grass-fed whey to take, consider Unflavored or Vanilla Naked 100% Grass-Fed Whey, 1 pound package and test it in PWM shakes, and for daily smoothies blended with for example berries and low-fat cheese - personally, Chocolate flavor is the best for PWMs and when mixed with low fat and cottage cheese, nuts and peanut butter, but not so when mixed with berries and other fruits. Supplement is very easy on the stomach, causing no digestive issues.
Note: Naked 100% Grass-Fed Whey is NOT a lactose-free whey supplement, and if you have lactose intolerance, try it carefully - many people being sensitive to lactose tolerate this and similar whey proteins, at least in smaller amounts (one to two scoops).
Long Story Short: If you need a high-quality whey protein supplement for your PWMs shakes, for breakfasts, daily shakes, and smoothies, and you don't want compromises regarding quality, consider Naked Whey 100% Grass-Fed Whey Protein.
It will help you with recovery after workouts, it will help you increase your stamina, and generally make you feel better.
But, it should be taken as part of a well-balanced diet, because no matter how good a supplement is, alone it can't do much!
