What is Pure Whey?
Pure Whey is a fast-acting and delicious protein powder containing the three best forms of whey protein: whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, and whey protein hydrolysate. Since amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and muscle tissue is largely protein, Pure Whey serves as a superb way to support muscle tissue growth and repair.
What is Whey Protein?
Whey protein is a byproduct of cheese production and has the highest biological value of any protein for humans. It is a complete protein and contains a rich amount of essential amino acids that are necessary for muscle protein synthesis.
Hence, protein is an essential macronutrient for building skeletal muscle, among a range of other vital functions, such as neurotransmission, energy production, cardiovascular function, and immune system regulation.2 Protein is also necessary for maintaining fluid balance and transporting nutrients in and out of cells.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and can be combined to form different functional proteins in the body. One of the primary uses of amino acids in the body is to synthesize structural proteins that make up tissues such as muscle and skin. Amino acids are also involved in the synthesis of peptide hormones such as growth hormone (GH), insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), and insulin.3
Protein, in nature, comes from both animal and plant sources. Animal sources - like whey protein - are considered ‘complete’ proteins (which contain all nine essential amino acids), whereas vegetable/plant sources of protein generally lack one or more of the essential amino acids.4 Essential amino acids must be provided through diet as the body doesn’t produce them on its own.
Benefits of Pure Whey
Research continually demonstrates that protein needs tend to be greater in active individuals (especially those who engage in regular resistance training and exercise).1 This is why we created Pure Whey - a premium fast-acting protein powder supplement containing the three best forms of whey protein for helping active individuals meet their protein needs.
Research corroborates that the amount of the amino acid L-leucine in a given protein source has direct impact on the intensity of muscle protein synthesis after consumption.5 For example, Pure Whey contains a large proportion of the amino acid L-leucine compared to other protein sources (such as chicken breast); thus, 20 grams of Pure Whey protein powder stimulates muscle protein synthesis to a greater degree than 20 grams of chicken breast.
Naturally, more muscle protein synthesis will promote better muscle tissue growth and repair.
Furthermore, consuming the high-quality whey proteins in Pure Whey has many benefits beyond just body composition improvements. See below for a comprehensive list of the research-backed benefits of Pure Whey:
- Complete protein source with over 5 grams of BCAAs per serving to optimize muscle building6
- Fast-acting and easy-to-digest
- Practical & convenient to add to any diet plan
- Increases the anabolic response to resistance training/intense exercise7
- Inhibits muscle protein breakdown during sustained aerobic activity, making it beneficial for endurance athletes8
- Enhances insulin sensitivity and metabolism9
- Supports immune system functioning, especially in those who keep physically active10
What Makes Pure Nutrition Pure Whey the Best Whey Protein Supplement on the Market?
Pure Nutrition Pure Whey is the most delicious and easy-to-digest whey protein powder on the market, using 100% whey protein from the highest-quality forms, including whey protein concentrate, whey protein hydrolysate, and whey protein isolate.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I’m lactose intolerant, can I still use Pure Whey?
A: Pure Nutrition Pure Whey is extremely low in lactose content and should be well-tolerated by most individuals.
Q: I’m allergic to milk/dairy, is Pure Whey safe for me?
A: This product contains ingredients from milk. You will need to consult with your physician first to make sure your allergy is not due milk allergy, particularly the whey fractions of milk.
Q: Is it true that whey protein is bad for the kidneys?
A: To our knowledge, there is no extant research indicating that whey protein itself is bad for the kidneys. Individuals with pre-existing renal impairment should, however, monitor their protein intake (regardless of where it’s coming from).
Q: Does it matter what liquid I use to mix my whey protein with?
A: No, Pure Nutrition Pure Whey will readily mix with most any liquid.
Q: Can I add whey protein to food recipes?
A: Yes! Pure Nutrition Pure Whey can be added to many baking/cooking recipes to boost protein content and provide flavor/texture enhancement.
