Whey protein is a protein that makes up about 20% of cows milk. Until recently whey protein was only known as a waste product in the cheese making process, however today whey protein is the most popular sport supplement around. Protein is an essential macronutrient that is needed to not only maintain muscle mass but also function in day to day life, with our whey protein concentrate delivering over 80% protein.
Whey protein has a series of unique properties that make it beneficial for athletes, gym goers, and even individuals looking to lose weight or just to consume a healthy diet.
Whey protein contains a comprehensive branched chain amino acid profile, meaning unlike other proteins whey protein is fast absorbing. This makes whey protein ideal after exercise where it can be directly absorbed by the muscles in need, helping to aid muscle recovery and lessen aches and pains whilst encouraging muscle growth and maintenance. Consuming more protein in the diet can aid weight loss, whereby this filling macronutrient helps curb appetite and increase metabolism.
The most beneficial time to consume Whey protein is following exercise, within 15- 30 minutes after your workout. Alternatively 25-30g of whey protein can be taken throughout the day if you’re looking to increase your protein intake or make a meal replacement shake.
Whey protein isolate is similar to whey protein concentrate but is considered to be a more pure form of protein. To do this whey protein concentrate undergo further complex processing techniques to remove excess carbohydrates, lactose and fat. Our whey protein isolate is 90% protein and is ideal for individuals who may be sensitive to lactose or looking to get high quality protein with minimal amounts of carbohydrates and fat.
Whey protein isolate helps maintain muscle mass whilst also aiding muscle recovery. Its properties are identical to whey protein however whey protein isolate delivers a greater protein content at 90% without any added fat, carbs or lactose.
The most beneficial time to consume Whey protein is following exercise, within 15- 30 minutes after your workout. Alternatively a 25-30g scoop of whey protein isolate can be taken throughout the day if you’re looking to increase your protein intake or make a meal replacement shake.
Our impact diet whey protein is a unique blend developed for those trying to achieve weight loss goals.
Impact diet whey contains series of ingredients that have been added to help facilitate fat loss, including acetyl l carnitine, green tea extract, flax seed powder ( a healthy source of omega 3), and also added sources of complex carbohydrates and fibre such as ground oats and whole psyllium husks to help keep you fuller for longer.
Impact diet whey also contains a blend of whey protein and milk protein which will allow a sustained release of protein to the muscles over a longer period of time than whey protein alone.
Impact Diet Whey can be taken following a workout to help deliver protein to muscles and replenish muscle glycogen stores thus aiding recovery. Not only this but a 58g serving of diet whey is ideal for a meal replacement in the day.
Casein protein is the other protein we find in milk that makes up around 80% of cows milk and is the protein that can be used to make products such as cheese.
Unlike whey protein casein protein is released more slowly in the body, this is because it reacts differently when consumed, whereby it combines with water to form globular balls- meaning it is digested over a longer period of time. Because casein protein is released over a longer period of time it can help keep you fuller for longer and also provide protein to the muscles for several hours.
Casein protein can help maintain lean muscle mass and can also aid weight loss and increase metabolism.
25-30g of casein protein is best taken before bed in a shake. This is because when we are fasting during the night casein can help maintain an adequate protein supple to the muscles, preventing muscle breakdown and aiding your recovery. However casein protein can also be taken as a meal replacement shake to help keep you full in the day.
Soy protein isolate is a vegan friendly source of protein which made from 100% NON-GMO defatted soy beans suing a stringent process which removes a vast majority of the fat and carbohydrate content. This means our soy protein isolate contains 90% protein and a comprehensive amino acid profile.
Soy protein is ideal for vegans and vegetarians looking to achieve an increased protein intake and aid fitness goals.
25-30g of soy protein can be taken in the day to help increase protein or following a workout to aid muscle development and recovery.
