With so many different types of protein out there it can be hard to understand why one is better than the other or how they “fit” into your fitness goals! Today I’ll be breaking down why you should consider Whey Protein Isolate as part of your healthy diet!
First off what exactly is Whey Protein Isolate? Whey protein comes from cow’s milk, is a rich source of the body’s essential amino acids, is efficiently digested and absorbed and is the most nutritious protein available. Whey protein isolate is the most pure form of Whey Protein (it contains 90 percent or more protein) and it has little to no fat, lactose or cholesterol.
Drinking Whey Protein has the following benefits: Per A 2009 study at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada
- Helps repair body cells, muscles and bones
- May posses anti-inflammatory or anti cancer properties
- Can help dieters loose weight
So drinking Whey Protein Isolate is a great way to fuel your body right!! The down side to some Whey Protein Isolate brands is that they have excess sugar and carbs. Which can be problematic when you are using Whey Protein Isolate to manage weight. Thank goodness for Isopure! The Isopure Zero Carb powder packs 50 grams (per 2-scoop serving) of 100% pure whey protein isolate, without a carb in sight. And it still comes with glutamine, vitamins, minerals and nutrients to keep your muscles tough, lean and ready to rock it. Isopure Zero Carb has 10,900 mg of BCAA’s and 4.6 grams of L-Glutamine in every serving, and is lactose and gluten free!!
BCAA’s are branch chained amino acids : BCAAs increase muscle retention and maximize fat loss much more effectively than non-supplemented groups. That’s the bottom line, my friends: more muscle mass retained, and a greater percentage of lost body fat.
L-Glutamine- L-Glutamine is an amino acid produced in your body. It is in fact the most common amino acid in your muscles, making up 61% of your skeletal tissue. L-Glutamine has shown in studies to increase metabolism of fat, and to help reduce cravings for carbs and sugars!
How’s that for a rocking protein! Now for your next question does Isopure taste good? To be honest I was a little nervous to try it! But it was really good! I mixed it with my usual spinach, PB and banana and it was good! I also just mixed it in with just water in my shaker cup and it was tasty!
Make sure you make Whey Protein Isolate part of your healthy diet to help repair and rebuild muscles and to help manage weight! To get more info on Isopure and all their rocking flavors and products make sure you are following them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
