Protein is critical to build and maintain muscle, recover post-workout, support immune function, stabilize energy, and help you feel fuller, longer.* Whey protein's unique blend of amino acids has been shown to be more effective in elevating performance compared to other forms of protein.* Whey protein isolate has been well-studied in recent years and shown to provide optimal benefits as part of your post-workout recovery.
Whey protein is high in leucine, an amino acid that signals your muscles to recover and repair after a workout.* Research has shown that it's the amount of leucine, not the amount of protein, that best repairs and maintains muscle.* Our whey protein isolate contains approximately 2.3 grams of leucine per serving, the amount shown to provide these benefits.
Our whey protein isolate is sourced from cows not treated with hormones. It contains no artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, carrageenan, or gluten.
IS THE WHEY FREE OF HORMONES?
Yes, the dairy for our whey isolate comes from cows not treated with hormones.
WHY ISN'T THE WHEY FROM GRASS-FED COWS?
In creating whey isolate, all the fat and almost all the carbohydrate is removed. The major health benefits of grass-fed whey compared to standard whey are found in whey concentrate as it contains more fat.
When it comes to whey isolate, there is no nutritional difference between whey isolate from a grass-fed cow versus non-grass-fed, but there is a pretty significant difference in the price of the whey. Therefore, we decided to use a non-grass fed whey isolate from dairy cows not treated with hormones.
