THE WHEY BREAKDOWN
Ultrapure Whey is a primary source of whey protein isolate, followed by whey concentrate and finally whey hydrolysate. The whey isolate is the purest and lowest in fat and carbohydrates of the 3, it digests very easily and has the highest spectrum of amino acids per gram. Whey concentrate plays an important role in this product as it digests slower allowing the continued uptake of amino acids into the bloodstream long after the isolate has been assimilated, which helps maintain the human body in a positive nitrogen balance for a lot longer.
Lastly but not least is the whey hydrolysate, hydrolysed whey protein in lay terms has been pre-digested or broken down into peptide form, peptides are strings of amino acids. The benefit from this faster absorption allows you to bypass the enzymatic process of digestion in the stomach and the amino acids enter the bloodstream in minutes, travelling to the muscle cells that need it the most.
Ultrapure Whey is very easy to digest, it contains a rich source of the branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), and it contains all 20 essential and non-essential amino acids required for muscle growth and recovery.
