Whey protein is a staple in my diet whether I am dieting down to get lean or whether I am trying to gain weight. It is also in the diets of my clients, male or female.
Whey protein is just a high-quality protein source much like chicken, fish, or lean red meats. It Is an easy, convenient way to increase protein while on the road or as an easily digestible source before a workout first thing in the morning.
Whey protein is a part of milk products, specifically, it is the liquid that you can see when the curd (casein protein) is removed to make cheese.
- Whey concentrate
- Whey isolate
Whey protein comes in two popular forms:
There is a third variant of whey, namely hydrolysate, but that serves a specific purpose and is not common in one’s everyday routine.
The main difference between whey concentrate and isolate is that isolate has gone through an additional filtering process to remove lactose and fat even further, and has higher protein content per serving than concentrate. If you have any lactose intolerance issues, isolate is the way to go to avoid stomach stress and bloating.
So, Why Chronicle Whey Isolate?
Chronicle Whey Isolate is one of the cleanest, high-quality sources of protein with minimal carbohydrate and fat content, so you get just what you are after; high-quality, pure protein.
A full serving of Chronicle Whey Isolate supplies a whopping 33g of the highest quality, clean protein, along with the optimal dose of 3561mg of Leucine for maximum protein synthesis stimulation and high amounts of all the essential amino acids in an easily digestible, good tasting shake.
Chronicle whey isolate has a complete optimised amino acid profile with added BCAAs to further boost protein synthesis and recovery. Although more expensive than whey concentrate, Chronicle Whey Isolate is well priced, and at the hefty 33g protein per serving, you may end up using less depending on your personal protein needs.
One of my biggest issues with protein powders is taste and texture. Some are too sweet, too thick, and have that artificial aftertaste. Chronicle Nutrition has a pleasing thin texture, no aftertaste, and is just sweet enough to satisfy but not too sweet that it makes me ill.
Use it on the go as a meal in a pinch, or before/after a workout to raise the amount of amino acids available in your body for the muscle growth process.
