What is 100% Whey?
100% Whey is a delicious protein powder containing pure whey protein concentrate. 100% Whey is a great option for active individuals, athletes, and anyone else looking for a high-quality source of whey protein concentrate to help meet their daily protein needs. Whey protein concentrate contains all the necessary amino acids necessary to support muscle building and repair, and it is easy to digest. It also mixes easily in most any liquid or food, making it easy to add to your diet.
If you’re lactose intolerant, we recommend Pure Nutrition Whey Isolate and Pure Whey, both of which are very low in lactose content.
What is Whey Protein?
Whey protein is the most biologically valuable protein for humans. In other words, your body utilizes it most efficiently for physiological processes, including muscle building. Whey is a protein that results as a byproduct of cheese production; whey protein concentrate is the most common supplemental form of whey protein, created via ultrafiltration. As such, whey protein concentrate typically provides small amounts of fat, lactose, and micronutrients. It is also more flavorful and rich than other forms of whey protein.
Whey protein is the single best protein source for building and repairing skeletal muscle tissue. It also serves a range of other physiological roles, such as supporting immune function, neurotransmission, energy production, insulin metabolism, and much more.2
Since whey protein is a complete protein source, it provides all the necessary amino acids for building muscle proteins and can also be utilized to synthesize various functional proteins/peptides in the body, such as insulin and growth hormone.3
Benefits of 100% Whey
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and skeletal muscle tissue is primarily composed of protein and water. The amino acid profile of 100% Whey serves as a superb way to give your muscle tissue the nutrients it needs to repair and grow.
Contemporary findings suggest that many people don’t consume adequate protein, especially individuals who are active and regularly train with weights.1 If you’re an athlete, casual gym-goer, or anyone who simply wants an easy-to-digest and high-quality source of complete protein, 100% Whey is a great choice. We highly recommend consuming 100% Whey after intense exercise, and ensuring you eat an adequate, balanced diet each day.
Whey protein concentrate contains a good amount of essential amino acids, which you must consume daily in order to encourage healthy muscle repair and muscle building. Scientific findings show that one of the essential amino acids, L-leucine, is particularly crucial for increasing muscle growth.4 100% Whey provides an ample amount of L-leucine in each serving to help stimulate muscle protein synthesis and ensure your muscle can rebuild properly.
Moreover, regularly consuming 100% Whey has a variety of evidence-based benefits beyond supporting muscle growth and repair, including:
- Muscle-building complete protein source with over 4 grams of BCAAs per serving5
- Promotes the anabolic response to resistance training and intense exercise6
- Works as an anti-catabolic agent by inhibiting muscle protein breakdown (especially important for endurance athletes)7
- Enhances insulin sensitivity 8
- Supports immune system functioning, especially in those who are regularly active9
- Easy to digest and delicious taste
- Simple to take & convenient to add to any diet plan
