Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. For example, your hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
Whey Protein Isolate has a very small molecule size and because of the small size of the protein particles, it is easily distributed throughout the body and to the muscles where they matter a lot. It is said that a whey protein isolate is the most efficient supplement because it is distributed to more muscle groups in the body as compared to other types of protein supplements. For athletic performance WPI healps with the following;
- Increased lean muscle mass
- Decreased recovery times and faster muscle repair
- Reduced post-workout muscle breakdown
- Increase metabolic rate
What’s in it?
The whey protein isolate (WPI) we use in RAW is grass fed instantised whey protein isolate. It is manufactured by cross flow micro-filtration (MF) and ultra-filtration (UF). Micro-filtration naturally isolates undenatured protein, providing a MF whey protein isolate (WPI) product that is low in fat, high in protein and very low lactose. The whey protein isolate is an undenatured, soluble whey protein with excellent nutritive value, making it a great choice of WPI.
Studies have been done over the years that compare whey protein isolate to other sources. What has been discovered is that whey protein isolate contains a very balanced combination of overall amino acid makeup which equals perfect concentrations for optimal performance in the body.
What the studies have also found is that both cellular and hormonal responses were very much enhanced with supplementation of whey protein isolate. Whey protein isolate also has very good benefits for the body’s immune system and plays an important role as an antioxidant and an immune system builder.
In conclusion, whey protein isolate has high amounts of naturally occurring amino acids the body needs every day. Whey protein is essential in any nutrition regimen, regardless of age or activity, providing a catalyst to the body for protein synthesis and muscle growth.
