Twitter has given us many things. From the trolling of Hulk Hogan, to rather odd world of One Direction fans. Or “fandom” if you want to get picky.

But annoying Directioners aside, one thing twitter hasn’t given us, is an explanation about supplements. Yes Twitter isn’t responsible for teaching you about what supplement does what, but we thought we’d help out anyway.

So here is what will probably be the biggest trend of the year. Every supplement explained, in 140 characters or less.

#YoureWelcome

Whey Protein

Derived from milk, whey protein supplements are the most popular protein around, and absorb quickly into the muscles. They help build muscle.

Micellar Casein

Casein. A slow absorbing protein coming from milk. Often taken at night, it’s good for recovery and has a sustained amino release. #NightOwl

Soy Protein

Soy is #misunderstood, wrongly so. It has tonnes of aminos, antioxidants and increases the anabolic IGF-1 hormone. #justsaying

Whey Protein Isolate

Want pure protein? Whey protein Isolate has even less sugar and fat then WPC80. That means nearly pure protein. Just #gains

RTD Protein Shakes

RTD stands for ready to drink. Used by members of the #fitfam who’ve left their protein at work. Sometimes in gym vending machines.

Whey Protein Concentrate

An ultra pure whey protein that has loads of BCAAs, as well as glutamine. Good for muscle and recovery. Lots of followers!*
*I.e. it’s popular.

Beef Protein

Whey protein comes from milk, beef protein comes from…beef. Low in sugar and fat, but 100% not for veggies. #sorrynotsorry.

Protein Bars

Tasty bars that make it easy to get protein in you. Great as a healthy snack or pre-workout energy boost. #eatclean

Protein Flapjacks

Imagine a protein bar, now imagine a flapjack. Combine the 2 and you get awesomeness. @matrix_nutritio flapjacks are awesome.

Hydrolysed Whey Protein

Known as the fastest digesting whey protein, created by hydrolysing (or pre-digesting) into a mixture of smaller proteins and amino acids.

Whey protein blends

Whey protein blends have a combo of isolate, whey protein concentrate and hydrolysed whey. LOADS of aminos and other muscle building stuff.

Egg protein

Lactose free, full of vitamins and a great alternative source of protein. Another way to have your eggs in the morning.

Pea Protein

If you are a #veggie then you will love pea protein. High in BCAAs and other important nutrients. #glutenfree
