Whey is a dietary supplement and food ingredient created by separating components from milk. Whey is a by-product of the cheese-making process.  Whey isolates contain the higher percentage of pure protein and can be pure enough to be virtually lactose free, carbohydrate free, fat free, and cholesterol free.

Whey proteins are highly bioavailable, are very quickly absorbed into the body, and have a high concentration of amino acids which are highly concentrated in muscle tissue, and are used to fuel working muscles and stimulate protein synthesis.

Whey isolates have had their base component (water) removed and are generally considered almost lactose and cholesterol free — they are typically at least 90% protein

Whey protein is popular among athletes today because of its ability to be digested very rapidly and help return the post-workout body back from a catabolic (muscle-wasting) state to an anabolic (muscle-building) state. Making Shakeology the perfect post workout meal replacement!

Top Ten Benefits of Whey Protein:

  1. Weight Loss
  2. Assists in increasing in muscle mass
  3. Assist in cancer treatment
  4. Increase in glutathione levels (your body’s main water-based anti-oxidant)
  5. Decrease in HIV symptoms
  6. Decrease in triglycerides
  7. Decrease in total cholesterol while increasing HDL (good cholesterol)
  8. Increase in immune system function
  9. Decrease hunger (a study showed that after consuming whey protein blood levels showed significantly reduced levels of ghrelin (a hormone that tells your brain you’re hungry) up to four hours later)
  10. Decreased recovery time and symptoms of over-training
