Elite Whey Protein for Bodybuilding - The Easy Way

Updated on December 12, 2017

How does milk alone build the body of an infant? How humans recycled a by-product of one of milk products (cheese) to produce Whey which is the most nutritious protein available? How humans used technology to produce elite whey protein to meet the different needs of bodybuilders? Why whey protein isolates are used in bodybuilding formulations? What are the varieties of elite whey protein available?.

These are the topics discussed in this hub.

How does an Infant Double his Weight Using Milk Alone?

To be continuously built, the human body needs a continuous flow of Growth hormone to build bones and muscles, as well as something to spare muscles from breakdown to produce energy. This dual role is done by Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs: Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine), as will be explained shortly. Milk just has the needed amounts of BCAAs to build the body of an infant, so that it is more than doubled in a few months.

BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) and Bodybuilding

Bodybuilding is concerned with building muscles. The essential (can't be synthesized by the body) 3 branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) make up approximately 1/3 of skeletal muscles in human body. They are there for a purpose, that is, when the body needs energy it can get it from muscles through BCAAs, since Leucine is the most readily oxidized BCAA, thus increasing insulin secretion by the pancreas, and as a result of lowering blood sugar, Growth hormone is secreted.

Laboratory research and reports from many serious and competitive body builders suggest that BCAAs can exert significant anticatabolic effect (they oppose muscle breakdown), and that adding BCAAs to  a protein-rich diet can help prevent loss of muscle mass, at least during diet.
Recently, they were found to increase the muscle ability to synthesize protein.

BCAAs have long been known as extremely important role players in the biochemistry of energy production and muscle growth.

Whey Protein

Whey protein is a recycled protein mixture made from cheese, to be one of the richest sources of natural proteins that has a high content of BCAAs, as it is one of their 3 best sources with eggs and red meat. It is popular among athletes who build their bodies, and it can be used as a supplement accompanying weight loss programs. Derived from milk, whey protein contains lactose, and this can be an issue for lactose intolerant people. We will see how this can be overcome.

Elite Whey protein Isolates

To minimize lactose content and to reinforce the product with more proteins, some special techniques are implemented to obtain isolates which contain more protein with less lactose and fat per serving. Usually isolates contain 90-98% protein while whey concentrate contains70-85% protein.

Studies have shown whey protein isolates to have immune boosting properties. Let us taste the scientific work: "The results of the study demonstrate that hydrolyzed whey protein isolate can significantly increase glutathione levels within the the prostate epithelium. This represents a potential mechanism by which whey protein isolate can provide protection against the development of prostate cancer". Dept. of Food Science & Technology, Ohio State Univ.

Elite Whey Protein

It is a blend of whey protein concentrates, peptides (threads of tied amino acids, each one thread is composed of a small number of amino acids), digestive enzyme blend to help amplify absorption and to make it even more agreable to lactose intolerant individuals. It has no added sugar, fructose, salt or carbohydrates.

Dymatize Elite Whey Protein Varieties

To meet the different personal preferences, there are different flavors and packages available including:
Berry Blast - Butter Toffee - Cafe Mocha - Chocolate Mint - Gourmet Vanilla - Green Apple - Orange Dreamsicle - Pina Colada - Rich Chocolate - Smooth Banana

Bodybuilding The Easy Way

As we see, the most convenient and easy way to build body, is to take whey protein products as a supplement to your chosen plan. Wait a minute, it can also be a supplement to plans of losing fat.
