Blade Nutrition 100% Whey Protein
With 30 grams of high-quality whey protein in each serving, Blade 100% Whey Protein feeds your muscles for maximum lean muscle development and recovery. Blade 100% Whey Protein helps athletes at all levels sustain a lean, strong and well-defined physique. Your body needs the amino acids that are naturally available in protein to build new muscle and reduce muscle breakdown.*
Blade Nutrition 100% Whey Protein delivers high nutritional value and is an excellent source of amino acids. Tailored to support better recovery and athletic performance, supplementing with Blade 100% Whey Protein can support an anabolic environment for your muscles to grow by creating a positive nitrogen balance in the body. When you do not eat enough protein, you fail to provide your body with the raw materials it needs to recover and repair. The human body is in a constant state of protein turnover with muscle tissue continuously being repaired, replaced or broken down. It is necessary to maintain an anabolic environment through a steady stream of protein to ensure your muscles are primed. The faster your muscles repair, the faster you recover. Blade 100% Whey Protein is your fast- acting whey protein to be consumed upon waking, pre-workout and immediately after intense training. Depending on your desired goal, it is recommended to consume approximately 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight daily.*
Blade 100% Whey Protein Advantage
Not all protein is created equal. Previous studies have demonstrated the ability of whey protein to play a vital role in muscle growth and maintenance, increased satiety and appetite control, and reduction of body fat. Whey protein contains an incredible range of essential amino acids, which are absorbed quickly. Whey protein is superior to other protein powders such as casein due to its high branched-chain amino acid levels, especially leucine. It is thus possible that the addition of whey, when used chronically in conjunction with resistance exercise may be more anabolic for skeletal muscle than ingesting only regular mixed meals throughout the day.*
Whey protein has been suggested to support gains in lean muscle mass particularly in studies examining the effects of whey protein supplementation in combination with resistance training. One study examined two groups for 21 weeks: one group took part in a resistance training regimen while supplementing with a whey protein isolate, while the placebo group took part in the resistance training regimen without any protein supplementation. At the end of 21 weeks, the placebo group had gained 2.57 kg of lean body mass, whereas the whey protein isolate group had gained 3.1 kg of lean body mass. Timed intake of 15 g of whey protein isolate both immediately before and after each exercise session further supported resistance training-induced vastus lateralis (i.e. quadriceps) muscle hypertrophy. Anabolic gene responses were further supported with whey protein isolate compared to the control group. Accordingly, this suggests that a high-quality whey protein drink such as Blade 100% Whey Protein can support lean muscle mass.*
Support Muscle Growth and Strength Gains with Whey Protein*
Whey protein is probably one of the most important supplements you can add to your supplement arsenal, not only for supporting lean muscle mass but also for the health benefits. Whey protein is a rich source of the body’s natural anti-oxidant, glutathione. Glutathione is an antioxidant that defends against free radicals. Acute studies have reported that whey protein (60 grams per day) evaluated over six months resulted in lower cortisol levels (lean muscle preservation). Whey is nutrient dense but relatively low in energy (~4 kcal/g); supplementation is an efficient method to assist skeletal muscle anabolism while supporting catabolism in fat cells and, therefore, is hypothesized to support both muscle growth and fat loss.*
