Proteins and Body Building

Everyone can benefit from a higher protein ratio in their diet.

  1. A higher protein diet — up to 30% of daily calories — helps reduce body fat especially around the belly.
  2. Amino acids found in all proteins help your body in its healing and repairing and regulate immune functions.
  3. You can get your protein built up by using our powders, bars and amino acids.

We have delicious brands of whey and egg proteins for increasing muscle mass and strength: great for body building and those wishing to improve their experience at the gym.

protein – whey isolate or concentrate?

What are the differences between a whey protein isolate and a whey protein concentration? The biological value rating is highest for the protein isolate, and it’s better for those who are lactose intolerant. A clean source of protein will have no antibiotics or growth hormones.

protein – whey or plant based protein such as pea or hemp?

When choosing between pea protein and whey protein, a quality plant sourced protein is measured by a higher biological value rating. More free nitrogen is retained in your system and you are better able to assimilate and utilize the amino acids to build and repair.
