Athletes know the importance of protein. It provides the building blocks for their muscles, and it’s an absolute must when trying to grow bigger, faster, and stronger.* To ensure optimal daily protein intake, athletes often turn to protein powders, due to their convenience and high protein content, and more often than not these protein powders are made from whey protein.* Derived from cow’s milk, whey protein has been a staple of bodybuilders, athletes, and weekend warriors for decades for a host of reasons: Cost Effective Convenient Portable Shelf stable Delicious Packed with protein Wide array of flavors But, in recent years, protein powders have suffered in terms of quality, taste, and affordability. In an effort to cut costs, manufacturers have opted for lower quality proteins and less-satisfying flavoring technologies. This has left consumers thirsting for a protein that mixes easily, tastes great, doesn’t upset their stomach, and doesn’t break the bank.* The team at Primeval Labs has surveyed the state of protein powders in the industry and heard your cries and sought to develop a protein that was not only of superior quality, but also tasted better than anything ever tasted before.* This quest to develop the ultimate protein powder resulted in the creation of ISOLIT. What is Isolit? ISOLIT is a 100% pure whey protein isolate protein powder that mixes easily and tastes absolutely delicious. ISOLIT is derived from exceptionally high-quality milk, and by using only whey protein isolate, we’ve maximized protein content per scoop while limiting carbohydrates and fat.* Premium Quality Whey Protein Isolate ISOLIT is a delicious-tasting, easy-to-digest whey protein isolate that contains a 100% pure, Triple Cold-Filtered processed whey protein isolate (4x smaller than micro filtered!), yielding a protein with unparalleled absorption and bioavailability!* By using a cold-filtered purification process, isolates may be able to retain a higher concentration of the bioactive fractions naturally occurring in whey protein including*: ß-lactoglobulin α-lactalbumin Bovine serum albumin Immunoglobulins Glycomacropeptide Lactoferrin Lactoperoxidase Cold Pressed Cross Flow Microfiltration is a natural non-chemical manufacturing process which uses high-tech ceramic filters to remove the vast majority of carbohydrates, lactose, and fat from milk.* Unlike ion exchange, which involves the use of harsh chemicals such as hydrochloric acid that degrade the bioactive whey fractions, cold-pressed cross-flow microfiltered whey uses no harsh chemicals or high temperatures, resulting in a whey protein isolate that retains all of the beneficial bioactive fractions of whey while at the same time delivering a powder that is incredibly high in protein and essential minerals, but low in carbs, fat, and lactose.* Why Use Whey Protein Isolate? Hard training athletes know the value of a calorie, and if you’re anything like us, you hate wasting calories on unnecessary carbohydrates and fats lurking in your protein powder. For this exact reason, we’ve selected whey protein isolate.* Whey protein isolate contains a minimum 90% protein by mass, which means there’s virtually no room left for carbohydrates, lactose, or fat. Typical bargain bin protein powders you’ll find on the market use the cheaper, less refined whey protein concentrate, which is rich in various immunoglobulins and lactoferrins, but suffers from a lack of standardization in quality.* You see, whey protein concentrate can range anywhere from 35-80% protein by weight depending on what quality a particular manufacturer ends up using. Even worse, companies aren’t required to list which grade of whey protein concentrate they use in their protein, which means you could only be getting about 35% protein by weight in your powder. This also means you’re “economy” protein powder could contain as much as 65% carbohydrates and fats. That’s hardly a “protein powder” in our book.* ISOLIT utilizes whey protein isolate, considered by many to be the purest form of whey protein on the market. Whey Isolate is processed one degree further than whey concentrate to remove fat and lactose, which delivers high protein, low carbohydrate and fat, and no GI upset. * Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, mix one scoop in 8oz of cold water.

Primeval Labs WHEY$59.99
Protein powder is one of the most popular supplements on the market. In fact, it’s one of the first supplements an individual purchases when they embark on their fitness journey.* The reason for this is that consuming sufficient dietary protein is key to achieving just about any performance or physique goal, be it muscle growth, fat loss, body recomposition, or kicking the opponent’s tail on the field of competition.[1,2,3,4] * Recognizing the demand for not only a premium-quality protein powder, but also one that was delicious and affordable, resulted in the creation of Primeval Labs WHEY.* What is WHEY? WHEY is a 100% pure whey protein concentrate (WPC) protein powder that mixes easily and tastes absolutely delicious.* Our whey protein concentrate is derived from high-quality milk, creating a protein that is both highly bioavailable and naturally rich in branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs).* This makes WHEY an ideal protein supplement for any active individual looking to support the performance, health, and physique goals.* Key Features of WHEY 23 grams protein per serving WHEY uses ONLY 100% WPC-80 Available in three mouth-watering flavors Mixes easily* Supports muscle recovery and growth* Supports weight loss* Naturally rich in BCAAs* Added digestive enzymes* More About Whey Protein Concentrate Whey protein is one of two proteins naturally occurring in cow’s milk.* It accounts for 20% of the total protein in milk, with casein accounting for the remaining 80%.* Whey protein is considered to be one of the best forms of protein due to is high biological value (BV), rivaling that of egg protein -- nature’s “perfect” protein. * In fact, whey has a biological value of 104 -- that’s higher than egg, beef, chicken, or fish protein.[5,6]* Basically, what this means is that whey protein is efficiently digested, absorbed, and used by the human body. * Other proteins that have low biological values (such as most plant proteins) are not efficiently used by the body, which means a higher amount of them needs to be consumed in order to deliver quality amounts of essential amino acids.* Since whey protein has a very high biological value it is ideally suited for individuals looking to support muscle growth, fat loss, recovery, and performance.* Furthermore, whey protein is rapidly digested, making it an enticing option for a post workout recovery shake.* Research also supports the use of whey protein supplementation when trying to build muscle, lose fat, and improve body composition.*[7,8] Additional studies also find that supplementing with whey protein may enhance anaerobic power and strength compared to supplementing with carbohydrates, due to improved recovery when supplementing with protein.* WHEY Uses Only WPC-80 A little known fact about whey protein concentrate is that its protein contents can vary between 34-80%!* Further complicating the matter is the fact that companies are NOT required to list which grade of whey protein concentrate is included in their protein powder, which means you could be getting (paying for) as little as 34% protein by weight in your powder.* What makes up the remaining percentage?* A mixture of carbohydrates (lactose) and fat.* Together this means that not only is your “protein” powder high in fat and lactose (which is sure to lead to GI upset), but it’s also low in protein.* We don’t know about you, but we hardly consider that a “protein powder”.* That’s why we use only the highest-quality whey protein concentrate in our WHEY protein powder -- WPC-80.* This delivers a powder that is high in protein while keeping carbs, fat, and total calories in check.* The other added benefit of using a concentrate as opposed to something like hydrolyzed whey protein is that it retains higher amounts of the bioactive fractions naturally occurring in whey, such as: ß-lactoglobulin α-lactalbumin Bovine serum albumin Immunoglobulins Glycomacropeptide Lactoferrin Lactoperoxidase And, whey concentrate also offers a superior texture and mouthfeel compared to other protein powders which can either taste thin and watery or gritty and grass-like.* Added Digestive Support WPC-80 is naturally low in lactose and whey in and of itself if highly bioavailable, but we sought to improve its digestion and uptake even more with the addition of DigeSEB™.* DigeSEB™ is a unique complex of digestive enzymes included to enhance digestibility, decrease bloating, and boost the overall nutrition of WHEY.* DigeSEB™ contains a special combination of FIVE digestive enzymes to improve digestibility of a broad range of foods (including dairy) into nutrients that the body can efficiently use.* Enzymes included in DigeSEB™ are: Amylases - naturally occurring enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates, more specifically starch, into smaller dextrins and sugars Lactase - digestive enzyme that breaks down lactose (milk sugar) Proteases - enzymes that hydrolyze (breaks down) proteins found in whey, casein, steak, chicken, fish as well as plant proteins into smaller chains of polypeptides and amino acids for uptake and utilization by the body Lipase - enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of fats into essential fatty acids used by the body for cell membrane repair and maintenance, hormone production, and numerous other functions Cellulase - enzyme that digests cellulose, a complex carbohydrate found in all plant material including plant fiber Disclaimer: *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
