Whey protein isolate is the purest form of whey available. Unlike whey concentrate, whey isolate has had the fat and carbs from its milk source filtered out, leaving you with what you want—straight protein to help you build muscle and change your body composition, and no excess calories or sugar.
Whey isolate not only contains all the essential amino acids that the body needs to build muscle, it’s high in leucine—a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) that signals muscle protein synthesis. Whey isolate has more leucine per gram than eggs, milk, or soy protein.
The sooner you get protein (and the leucine within it) into your muscles, the faster you can begin to recover from your workout. For hard training athletes and gym goers who partake in multiple activities per day, fast recovery between sessions is critical. Whey isolate delivers leucine to the muscles more efficiently than other protein supplements, making it a must-have for any post-workout shake.
There may be no more effective or widely researched supplement for supporting workouts and changing the way you look than whey protein. People most often use it for the following reasons.
Our process produces an easily digestible and highly absorbable product. Using non-GMO ingredients, our whey is derived from the milk of New Zealand dairy cows which are able to graze pastures year round – largely avoiding the need for feed supplements. Plus, we’ve left gluten, lactose and sugar at the door, which makes for easier digestion.
