MACHINE WHEY uses a VERY HIGH PERCENTAGE (80%) Whey Protein!
Protein is essential for muscle repair and growth. In order to get in sufficient amounts of protein each day, athletes frequently opt for protein powder as a quick, tasty, and affordable way to get in their daily protein. In fact, whey protein powder is quite often the very first supplement athletes purchase in their pursuit of improved recovery and increased muscle growth.
The reason whey protein is so beneficial for hard-training athletes is that it is a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids. It’s also very high in branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), the trio of amino acids responsible for driving muscle protein synthesis. Whey accounts for 20% of the protein in milk (the other 80% is casein).
Whey protein concentrate (WPC) comes in various grades ranging from WPC-35 to WPC-80. These grades dictate how much protein is in the powder. The higher the number, the more protein you’re getting. MTS Machine Whey uses the highest quality of whey concentrate in WPC-80, giving you more protein per scoop that other cheaper proteins on the market. Numerous studies have touted the benefits of whey for its ability to support muscle growth, accelerate recovery, lose fat and boost immunity.[2,3,4]
Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) is simply a more refined form of whey protein concentrate. Additional carbs and fats have been removed from the whey to yield a product that is ultra-high in protein (>90%) and extremely low in carbs, lactose, and fats, making isolates the ideal option for individuals with lactose digestibility issues. By employing the ideal mix of whey concentrate and isolate, Machine Whey creates a protein powder that is both extremely gratifying in taste and texture while at the same time being high in protein and lower in carbs and fats that concentrate-only powders.
Why Take Whey Protein?
Whey Protein is essential for athletes looking to increase lean mass and lose fat. Athletes need more protein in their diet, and as stated by the International Society of Sport Nutrition, more than twice the recommended daily allowance. Whey protein contains ALL essential amino acids, making it a complete protein and is also very high in Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA). The BCAA’s Leucine, Valine and Isoleucine have been shown in studies to help people build lean mass and burn fat. Whey protein helps you maintain healthy immune system by increasing the levels of glutathione in the body. Glutathione is an anti-oxidant required for a healthy immune system. Exercise and resistance training may reduce glutathione levels. Thus, whey protein might also keep you healthy!
