Elite Whey Isolate is an advanced, premium quality whey protein isolate powder. Whey is considered to have the highest 'biological value' (BV) of any protein - a scientific way of scoring how efficiently it can be utilised by your muscles to repair and grow muscle. Whey protein isolate is a purer, faster digesting form of the whey concentrate found in our Optimum Whey, which makes it the ultimate post-exercise shake for serious trainers. This product is produced using an advanced processing method known as micro-filtering, which results in a powder with an 88% protein content and just 0.4g of fat and 0.6g of carbohydrates per serving. It is also virtually free of the milk sugar, lactose which many people have intolerance to.
Whey Protein Isolate delivers amino acid building blocks to workout damaged muscles extremely quickly, which takes full advantage of their increased capacity to absorb and utilise nutrients for a limited time after exercise. This is a premium protein to supplement the diet of serious trainers.Why take it?
Regular whey protein concentrate (as found in Optimum Whey) has a simple biological structure, meaning it is easily absorbed by muscles. This makes it a great supplement to take straight after training, when fast protein delivery is preferable to support tissue repair and growth. However, the advanced purity of Elite Whey Isolate means that it digests even faster, providing a premium option for serious trainers.
The reason why a rapid, post workout delivery of protein is so effective, is due to the physiological training effect which heightens your muscle's sensitivity to absorb and utilise nutrients. In simple terms, workouts tear muscle fibres, which triggers tissue breakdown (catabolism). This training stress elevates the capacity of your muscles to absorb protein, but only for a limited time post-workout. Therefore, consuming a very fast digesting protein enables you to take full advantage of the post-workout window of opportunity, when muscle sensitivity is highest. This strategy enables your body to effectively trigger muscle repair and growth by stimulating the build-up of new muscle fibres in a process known as protein synthesis.
While Elite Whey Isolate is our premium post-workout option, if you are looking for a powder that offers a balance of effective results and economy, you may wish to try our Optimum Whey.When to take it?
Elite Whey Isolate has been primarily designed to be consumed shortly after (within 10-20 minutes) intense exercise. However, for enhanced muscle growth support you can use this product before and during training, without digestion issues or throughout the day to help you reach your exercise elevated protein requirement. Research studies suggest that this is around 2g per kilogram of body mass (e.g. a 90kg man requires 180g of protein daily).
Consider optimising your post workout nutrition by adding other nutrients to your shake such as creatine and glutamine.Key benefitsPremium post-workout protein
