Review: Multipower Professional Whey Isolate

pure_whey_isolate

 

A few weeks ago the guys at Mutipower Professional sent me a tub of their chocolate flavoured whey isolate, so over the last few weeks I have been using it to see how it stacked up against other proteins I have used in the past.

But before I start looking at this particular product I thought it might be useful to have a quick look at the theory behind the use of whey protein for increased performance, speedy recovery and to aid hypertrophy.

Whey protein is derived from milk and is a commonly used to increase protein intake.  Whey due to its high concentration of essential amino acids and it’s easy absorption by the body makes it useful as an aid to reduce muscle breakdown post exercise and encourage muscle growth.  It is recommended that strength athletes take on board 1.4 to 1.8g of protein per kg of body weight, whey supplementation can be used to make sure that individuals meet their desired protein levels and keep intake regular when eating full meals is not available.

The fact that this product is an isolate over a concentrate means that the body will be able to absorb the protein much more rapidly and therefore much-needed amino acids will make it to the muscles faster (aiding recovery  post workout.  Look out for my article next week identifying the key differences between concentrate and isolate.

The Multipower Professional brand is one that I had not previously used, but after trying this product I will be looking in more Multipower Professional range.

I used the whey isolate powder over the course of a week, to see what I thought of it.  I found the protein itself was a really good product, it was packaged well in a super bright bottle (easier to find in the gym bag).  The powder stood up to my pet hate test and mixed really well with both water and milk.  The powder was a tick mix (just as I like it) and also and probably most importantly tasted great!  I am not normally a chocolate fan, but the Multipower Whey Isolate was good, not to choclatey…. if that makes any sense at all!

I would strongly recommend the Multipower whey isolate, so have a good look at their site and see what jumps out at you.
