What’s in Whey-Pro 5?
Whey Protein Isolate: Offers the most protein per gram than any other source of whey protein. Absorbs quickly into the bloodstream and muscle tissues and has immune-boosting properties to protect your body during periods of intense training.
Whey Protein Concentrate: The most whole source of whey protein, concentrate is a slower digesting whey protein that offers real food substances including alpha-lacto globulins and lactoferrins, which have immune-boosting and muscle-building properties.*
Whey Protein Hydrolysate: Hydrolyzed whey is protein that’s been broken down into fast-absorbing peptides. The fastest absorbing of all forms of whey, hydrolyzed whey hits the bloodstream first, providing a rapid infusion of muscle-building amino acids.
Colostrum: Helps support your immune system, which is weakened through hard training sessions. Colostrum also helps prevent leakiness, the tendency for macromolecules to escape the digestive tract through the intestinal wall, while providing real food substances that play a critical role in your body. Cysteine, Lactoferrin and Immunoglobulins, which are found in colostrum, help regulate metabolism, improve immunity, support good bacteria in your gut and act as antibodies.
Digestive Enzyme Blend: Helps break down food along the digestive tract so that the maximum amount of nutrients can be more efficiently absorbed into the bloodstream. The added digestive enzymes insure maximum utilization of Whey-Pro 5 muscle-building protein components to make sure you’re getting more out of each serving.

PNP Growth Matrix
Whey Protein Concentrate: Whey protein is the liquid produced as the result of cheese making. Lactose intolerant athletes can usually digest it without any problem as it is casein in the solid portion that is responsible for allergies. Whey Protein Concentrate has been extensively studied for its beneficial effects. It has been shown to supply vital proteins for muscle growth, especially in response to resistance training such as weight lifting. The concentrate is anti-inflammatory and will readily supply a better-quality selection of amino acids to the athlete to aid in muscle recovery and re-building than other protein sources and helps to ease soreness. Studies done with older men and women indicate that this protein source is beneficial to adding muscle mass and improves body composition.

Whey Protein Isolate: Whey Protein Isolate is a more purified form of Whey Protein Concentrate making it very bio-available and easy to digest. It is a powerful source of proteins as it is about 90 percent pure, with an excellent amino acid profile. There are numerous studies showing this protein source is able to re-build muscle after exercise and competition and that it helps to add mass and increase strength. It has a positive effect on the lean muscles and in aiding an overall improvement body composition.

Whey Protein Hydrolysate: Hydrolysates are proteins that are pre-digested by chemically pure enzymes under highly controlled conditions. Whey Protein Hydrolysate’s are readily absorbed by the digestive system and then easily utilized by the body. The proteins are highly beneficial to athletic performance in that they immediately go about re-building and strengthening muscle. Whey Protein Hydrolysates are ideal for post workout and competition recovery and complement the somewhat longer term action of isolates and concentrates.

Colostrum: Derived from cows in the late stages of pregnancy, colostrum is rich in anti-oxidants, antibiotics and proteins. It has been widely used by athletes the world over to improve recovery after strenuous workouts and competitive events. Colostrum has been studied for its ability to improve athletic performance and the results appear to be mixed pending further investigation however, its effects on body composition and its ability to supply body building nutrients are widely acknowledged.

Digestive Enzyme Blend
Protease: Protease enzymes have been extensively studied as to their benefits for athletic performance. These enzymes naturally break down proteins and have been widely studied as anti-inflammatory treatments following severe sports injuries and sports related trauma ranging from severe sprains to facial injuries and arthritic conditions. Overall, Proteases can help ease the burden of breaking down proteins in various supplements, especially those protein supplements taken before or after intense athletic training and competition.

Lactase: Lactase is the enzyme produced by the human body to break down milk and dairy products so they can be efficiently used to help build and re-build muscles following exercise and competition. Most humans, who are “lactose intolerant,” have some Lactase, but it may be insufficient for complete digestion of dairy. In supplying Lactase in the Whey-Pro 5 formula, athletes who could benefit from whey proteins in improving their athletic performance can now do so because the enzyme is supplied in the formula.
