    whey and flax oil

    Hey guy...

    What is the rate of absorption when you take whey protein and mix 1 tbs
    of flax oil. Does it take 1 hour to absorb the protein or more?

    Whey is a very fast absorbing protein and adding any type of fiber,carbs or fat including the good flax will slow it down. How much is slowed depends on what condition your body is in at the time and amounts.

    Yeah, it ain't 3-4 hours though as even solid food doesn't take that long. (Hence the reason people eat every 2.5 - 3 hours)

    I've noticed when I used to take just protein + water, it would only last me about two hours. When I mix with 1/2 tbsp flax oil, it lasts me about two and a half hours. When I mix with 1 tbsp flax oil, it lasts me around 3 hours.

    (Lasts me as in I don't get hungry until...)
