100% Whey Protein Overview
Protein supplements are the most popular supplements for those trying to pack on muscle or lean up, and among the different types of protein, whey protein is far-and-away the most popular type of protein supplement. What is whey protein? Whey protein comes in two principal forms, whey concentrates which are about 80% protein and whey isolates which are as high as 90% protein. Each has its advantages and drawbacks, so a blend of both types is the ideal whey protein supplement. EAS 100% Whey Protein provides a blend of whey-protein concentrate and whey protein isolate at a terrific price. Each serving provides 23 grams of fast-absorbing protein to feed your muscles and your whole body. 100% Whey is naturally rich in muscle-sparing branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) and immune supporting immunoglobulins. EAS recently updated their flavoring system for richer tastes and managed to do it without adding any additional carbs or sugar to the product.
EAS recommends 1-4 servings of 100% Whey Protein every day. You could do that, but in our experience you only want to use one or two protein shakes per day, whatever the brand, because when you start using 3 or 4 per day, it's too easy to get burnt out on both preparing and drinking them. Mix 100% Whey into cold skim milk, chilled water or diluted, chilled fruit juice for best results. Like most whey proteins, EAS 100% Whey will taste best mixed with cold liquids. Add frozen fruit and ice for more flavor and texture. EAS suggests athletes consume 1 gram of protein per pound of ideal bodyweight per day, from a combination of protein supplements like 100% Whey Protein and food sources like lean meats and fish.
100% Whey Protein Description from EAS
This Product Offers:
-6.3 g branched chain amino acid (BCAAs). Research shows that BCAAs help muscles recover after strenuous exercise and support muscle protein synthesis when used in conjunction with a balanced diet.
-2.9 g L-leucine, a BCAA, to help build muscles. Leucine helps stimulate muscle protein synthesis.
-1.6 g L-glutamine, an amino acid that is a building block needed for muscle growth and is a fuel for immune system cells.
-Rapid amino acid absorption into the muscles to stimulate protein synthesis to help repair exercise-induced muscle damage.
-26 g whey protein isolated through a series of micro- and ultra-filtration steps and "instantized" for ease of mixability.
