Our Premium Whey Protein Blend is a high-quality protein attached with an affordable cost. It is the golden ratio of high-quality whey concentrate and whey isolate to deliver a protein that has solid nutritional value at an economical value. This blend contains a mixture of different amino acids to benefit your body.
Premium whey protein blend supplements are basically whey protein supplements made up of different forms of whey protein. Generally they will contain combinations of whey protein isolates, whey protein concentrates, and hydrolysed whey protein, amongst others. Whey protein itself, is naturally derived from cow’s milk, and is a by-product left behind when milk separates and turns into cheese. Whey protein blends contain different forms of whey, which provide different benefits and rates of absorption for the body. For example, the different combinations of whey provide different combinations and quantities of amino acids, which all have different effects on the body. As it is premium, the quality of each whey protein supplement found in the whey protein blend, is considered to be very high indeed.
Basic Whey Protein Concentrate
As mentioned, basic Whey Protein Concentrate is derived from cow’s milk, and is generally around 70 – 85% protein per serving. It is rich in amino acids and other nutrients, and is a very affordable protein. As we’ve already covered basic whey protein a little earlier on, we’ll not go over the same things again.
Grass-Fed New Zealand Whey Protein Concentrate
Grass-fed New Zealand Whey Protein Concentrate however, is considered to be of a much higher quality than regular whey protein concentrates, because of what the cows have been fed and grazing on when they produced the milk. Instead of being fed grains and corns, which will have been treated and grown with chemicals and pesticides, the New Zealand grass is instead all natural, so the cows themselves are eating a healthier diet. The protein is generally much purer, plus, it is enriched with far more omega 3 fatty acids, and Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA, than milk that comes from grain-fed cattle. Put simply, the healthier the cow, the better quality the milk they produce will be, which means the better quality the whey protein will be.
All Natural Grass-Fed New Zealand Whey Protein Concentrate
The ultimate in naturally flavoured protein powder, All Natural Grass-fed New Zealand Concentrate not only brings all of the health benefits of New Zealand whey, but it is also sweetened with Stevia, an all-natural sweetener extracted from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant species.
Health Canada Recommended Dose (powder): Adults: 1 scoop 3 times per day. Mix product well in 1-2 cups of your beverage of choice immediately before consumption. Ensure to drink enough fluid before, during, and after exercise.
The main reason why whey protein blend supplements are considered beneficial when compared with whey protein concentrate supplements, is simply the fact that the protein contained in the blend is of a higher quality. Although premium whey protein blends do contain whey concentrate, they also contain whey isolate, which means that, per serving, you get more protein than you would with whey concentrate. The benefits and effects are the same, the only difference is that you get more protein per serving, and that the protein is often absorbed quicker than usual.
Whey protein concentrate (Bos taurus – Milk) – 12.5 Grams (80% protein)
Whey protein isolate (Bos taurus – Milk) – 12.5 Grams (90% protein)
Protein helps initiate protein synthesis, which is an essential part of muscle growth and repair. Without it, our muscles would breakdown and become damaged during a workout, leaving them unable to repair themselves and be rebuilt by the body, even bigger and stronger than they were previously.
After exercising, the muscles are primed in such a way as they can absorb more nutrients than they would in a rested state, and not only that, but they need certain nutrients in order to kick-start the recovery process. Whey protein is absorbed extremely quickly, so it can make its way into the bloodstream faster and be delivered to the awaiting muscle cells, where it can help the post-workout recovery process to begin almost immediately.
Another benefit of protein blend supplements, is the fact that they are incredibly convenient. One of these shakes will provide you with upwards of 40g of protein per serving, which is absorbed quickly, and can easily be consumed. For post-workout nutrition, where nutrient timing is key, these protein shakes are perfect.
