WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE AND OTHER WHEY PROTEIN BLENDS?
Whey Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Concentrate (normal whey protein) are both derived from the same milk concentration source. However, Whey Protein Isolate goes through an extra filtering process, separating and eliminating excess lactose, carbs, and fat. Whey Isolate is also the quickest digesting and purest form of protein available, and with over 90% protein per serving, it has more protein in every scoop and is digested faster than other whey protein blends.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF 100% GRASS FED PROTEIN, AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT THE WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE?
Grass Fed Whey Protein Isolate is one of the most natural and wholistic forms of whey protein. It comes directly from (you guessed it), cows fed only with natural grass, instead of a grain based diet combined with other hormones. Grass Fed Whey is not only higher in Omega 3 Fatty Acids and CLA's (Conjugated Linoleic Acids), which can help in the reduction of body fat and act as anti-inflammatories, but also contains more of the essential vitamins and nutrients from it's source, as opposed to other whey proteins from less natural sources. In addition to all of it's natural health benefits, choosing Grass Fed Whey also helps reduce strain on the environment, minimizing methane gasses used in it's process and promoting a healthier and more natural alternative to hormones.
WHEN SHOULD I TAKE THE PROTEIN?
This greatly depends on your individual fitness goals and overall lifestyle, but using the Whey Protein Isolate immediately after a workout is the best way to get all the benefits of the fast acting protein. Drinking the protein directly after a workout helps with both muscle growth and recovery, and it's the perfect way to optimize a workout regiment. In addition, because of it's low calorie count, the Whey Protein Isolate can also be used as a meal replacement shake for those trying to lose or manage weight, and can also be utilized to help increase protein intake in those that lack it in their everyday diet.
