Naturade 100% Whey™
Whey protein is a high-quality protein naturally found in dairy. It is a complete protein containing all of the essential amino acids (“building blocks”) your body needs and is easy to digest. Whey protein is also one of the best sources of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) including leucine, which has been shown to stimulate muscle synthesis. Whey is one of two major proteins found in cow’s milk. Whey protein is produced during the process of making cheese, which begins when special enzymes are added to milk causing it to separate. The curds are used to make cheese, leaving behind whey protein in the liquid portion. This liquid whey is then pasteurized and dried into a powder for various uses. Emerging research shows older Americans may be able to reduce the age-related decline of muscle mass by engaging in resistance training and consuming higher than the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for protein. It also provides a high concentration of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) to maintain and repair lean muscle tissue following exercise and to prevent muscle breakdown. Calorie for calorie, whey protein can help people feel fuller longer than carbohydrates or fats.
Directions: Stir or shake 2 scoops (20 grams) into 8 oz of milk, soymilk or your favorite juice.
