Why Whey Power?

What makes our Whey Power PARTICULARLY outstanding?

  • 29-28 grams Whey Protein Concentrate from grass-fed cows
  • 6000 mg L-Glutamine per serving! Glutamine is excellent for muscle repair and recovery; it also supports gut health and a strong immune system.
  • 6000 mg to 7500 mg BCAA’s (Branched Chain Amino Acids) BCAA’s prevent muscle breakdown during long, intense sessions.
  • Our whey undergoes ultra-filtration which increases the concentration of vitamins and amino acids per gram of protein.
  • Whey Power is derived directly from milk, so it is not an overly-processed by-product from cheese manufacture. This means that the immune-boosting qualities of the whey remain intact! And the L-Leucine content is actually 14% higher in our whey, than whey that is derived from cheese.
  • NO added carbohydrate
  • Only 620kJ (150 Cal) per serving
  • MCT’s (Medium Chain Triglycerides) added for energy – These are great if you’re on a low-carb diet and need extra energy! MCT’s are not stored as fat. And they’re fantastic food for your brain!
  • Very low lactose. In addition, we’ve included the enzyme lactase for super-easy digestion!
  • Instead of regular table salt, we use Kalahari salt which high in potassium, magnesium and trace minerals!
  • NO stimulants
  • Immune-boosting qualities. Since our whey does not come from cheese, it is not subjected to excessive acid treatment/over-processing, and so the natural immune-boosting qualities of whey remain intact!
  • Derived from grass-fed cattle
  • GMO free
  • Is suitable for (lacto) vegetarians.
  • Mixes easily in plain water
  • And of course, like ALL our products, it simply tastes delicious! IN WATER!

FAQ

Q: How do I use Whey Power?

A: Whenever you need protein for LEAN muscle tone and RECOVERY from intense training…Simply drink one scoop of Whey Power with WATER straight after training.

You can also add Whey Power to your oats, or muesli; or you can add it to your favourite smoothie! It is SO versatile!

In addition, if you’re having a “low” protein meal – such as a salad or pasta, you can boost the protein content of that meal by simply drinking a scoop of Whey Power along with it.

Q: When is the best time to drink Whey Power?

A: To maximise recovery, drink a scoop of Whey Power straight after training – It’s perfect for when you want JUST PROTEIN for LEAN muscle tone and RECOVERY from training.

And of course if you’d like to include some carb or extra fat with your Whey, then simply add some oats or muesli and/or a handful of nuts/seeds/peanut butter. Whey Power is delicious with any of these suggestions. My personal favourite is Whey Power stirred into my oats, with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a handful of nuts! Absolutely yummy!

Boost your protein: Whey Power can be taken anytime when you need extra protein: Many folk include it as part of their mid-morning/mid-afternoon snack-meals; or as their main source of protein with their lunchtime salad.

It is also a marvellous “go-to” as an after-dinner/late-night, non-fattening tasty snack!

Q: Why whey protein concentrate?

A: Unlike most other forms of whey (including isolate), whey protein concentrate is not subjected to excessive acid processing.

Q: What is the difference between whey that comes from cheese and whey that comes from milk? And which one is better?

A: Whey that comes from milk is much better than whey that comes from cheese: Whey that is derived from milk, is not overly-processed and not subjected to acid treatment. This means that the natural immune-boosting qualities of whey remain intact! In addition, the L-Leucine content is actually 14% higher in milk-dervived whey than whey from cheese. Whey that comes from cheese is actually a by-product, and has been subjected to extensive acid treatment and processing. Many supplement companies use this type of whey from cheese.

Q: Why are L-Glutamine and BCAA’s so important?

A: L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in skeletal muscle – So it assists with muscle repair and recovery. It also supports a healthy gut, which is the main contributor to a healthy immune system.

Q: With the Leucine being 14% higher in THIS whey, what is the significance of that?

A: L-Leucine has many beneficial effects for athletes – It helps with preserving lean muscle tissue and supplying the body with energy during long, hard sessions. It preserves muscle glycogen (the energy stored muscles) and helps maintain a positive nitrogen balance, which is important for repair.

Q: What is the difference between Whey Power and EnduraShake?

A: Whey Power is completely different to the EnduraShake.

The EnduraShake is designed for endurance training and events. One serving is designed to give you sustained energy with a medium to high heart-rate for up 4 hours. It contains carbohydrate, MCT fats (Medium Chain Triglyercides) and protein. (You cannot be “dieting” during a long endurance race – You need to feed your body appropriately!).

Whey Power is basically JUST protein per serving – It actually has a higher protein per serving than the EnduraShake, but it has no added carbs for athletic endurance. It does has very high levels of L-Glutamine per serving = 6000mg (for FAST recovery) as well as high BCAA’s = 7500mg (to prevent muscle breakdown).

So EnduraShake is for (endurance*) training or racing, whilst the Whey Power is recommended to be used on a daily basis to increase your protein intake and boost your recovery!

Whey Power is particularly good if you’re not wanting to put on weight, or if you are wanting to lose a few kilos!

Most people add a scoop of Whey Power to their oats or to a smoothie, or you can just drink it on its own (It is not thick like the EnduraShake as it has no carbs and very little fat)

You cannot race on Whey Power – You wouldn’t last even an hour of medium to high heart-rate on Whey Power. It is purely protein.

*Many younger athletes that are very lean/have a fast metabolism use the EnduraShake as a supplementary food (They are not necessarily using it for endurance). They supplement their meals with EnduraShake (at school or boarding school or university for instance, whenever their schedule is hectic). The EnduraShake is superb for athletes with a fast metabolism to use as a daily food. Also great for elderly folk who are not eating correctly or enough!

Q: What is the difference between Whey Power and LeanPlex?

A: The Whey Power is JUST protein, so no added carb. (There is negligible amount of carb – only 2.9g, which is inherent in the whey). Because Whey Power is JUST protein, it won’t keep you feeling full for long (unless you add it to oats or to a smoothie etc).

However, Whey Power has an extremely high recovery function – It has 6000mg of L-glutamine per scoop. In addition, it has 7500 mg BCAAs per scoop (BCAAs prevent muscle breakdown from intense training and/or strict low-carb dieting).

Whey Power is great for boosting overall protein intake! So if your diet is a little low in protein or your body needs faster recovery, then Whey Power is for you!

Also, if you are following a very low carbohydrate or no-carbohydrate diet, then Whey Power is perfect!

The consistency of Whey Power is very thin – as it is basically just protein. There is a smidgen of MCTs (medium chain triglycerides = a fat) added for those folk on low carb diets who still need to find energy to train. MCTs will provide this energy and are not stored as fat. We stock MCTs separately.

LeanPlex is a convenient, complete, low kilojoule meal, consisting of protein, low GI carbohydrate and fat. Because it is a complete (but low kilojoule) meal, LeanPlex will keep you feeling full for quite some time afterwards. It is particularly good if you have blood sugar fluctuations and if you struggle with cravings for junk! Leanplex also has a thicker mouth-feel than Whey Power, as it contains a little (low GI) carbohydrate and some fat.

Both the LeanPlex and the Whey Power are absolutely delicious! Both can be taken in water or tossed into a smoothie.

AND…You don’t have to choose!!!  You CAN use both – Simply and easily!

You can use LeanPlex as a meal – anytime during the day to help you to lose fat. (It’s very convenient at work); and Whey Power can be taken straight after training and/or for breakfast instead of an egg: Simply add a scoop of Whey Power to your oats for extra protein and magnificent recovery! You can also use Whey Power for a late-night NON-fattening snack! See our easy-to-do meal plan that includes both.

EnduraShake vs LeanPlex vs Whey Power

What is the difference between EnduraShake, LeanPlex and Whey Power? When do I use each one?

ENDURASHAKE: Endurance meal – before and during, nutrition loader before and endurance recovery shake

How to use:

  • Nutrition/carbo-loader: 1-5 days before (depending on the type and intensity of the event). 1 scoop in 200mls water at 10h00, 15h00 and before bed.

  • Breakfast before the start: One serving (2 scoops) in 400mls water, 45-60 minutes before the start of the event/session.

  • Sustaining Meal During: If the event is long, take one serving (2 scoops) every 3.5 to 4 hours during the session.

  • Recovery food: A serving afterwards (2 scoops) for fast recovery. You can also take another 1-2 scoops before you go to sleep if you’re competing again the next day. EnduraShake won’t keep you awake, but it will help repair and replenish tired muscles whilst you sleep!

LEANPLEX: To Cut fat. A balanced meal during the day. Good for recovery after daily training.

How to use:

  • Take one serving (2 scoops) of LeanPlex in 300mls water mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

Or:

  • Drink LeanPlex ANYTIME when you can’t get to a healthy, balanced meal: LeanPlex makes a great breakfast if you’re running late; and it makes a satisfying lunch if you haven’t packed something healthy; or light, nutritious dinner, if you’re home late and too tired to cook.

WHEY POWER: Protein ONLY. To recover super fast, but not with huge calories/kilojoules! NO added carb. Nice for lean muscle tone.

How to use:

  • Drink one scoop of Whey Power in 250ml water straight after training. Great after after hill/ sprint sessions or heavy lifting at the gym… After any session where you know that you’re going to be stiff and sore!

  • Whenever you need to increase the protein content of a meal – such as adding a scoop of Whey Power to your breakfast oats/ muesli, (this makes the boring old oats taste delicious!); or drinking a scoop of Whey Power with your lunch salad /or low-protein pasta dish..Any meal where you’d like to increase the protein content.

  • A great idea is to add it to your daily favourite smoothie.

So to summarise, the EnduraShake should be used for your weekend sesssions (long, endurance) and events.

The LeanPlex and Whey Power should be used during the week, when trying to recover fast, but stay lean for your sport.

Intermitttent Fasting with Whey Power, MCT Oil and PaceLyte: A Suggested Eating Plan to Cut Fat whilst training hard!

  • In the morning upon waking, drink a glass of water.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of MCT Oil to your black coffee.

Train: Cycle, Run etc.

If you are fatigued from the previous day’s session, OR if today’s session is a high heart-rate one, then add PaceLyte to your water bottles.

(Note: If you’re doing a longer (2 hours+), outdoor session, then rather use the EnduraPower for that session)

Afterwards: (Optional) 1 Teaspoon MCT Oil. This will keep you going until you break your fast later, around lunchtime.

“Break” Fast: ~13h00/14h00 (or earlier if you cannot manage to wait)

Add 1 scoop Whey Power to a large fruit smoothie –  Include a banana to help settle Ghrelin, the hunger hormone.

If hungry last thing at night:

What is the difference between LeanPlex and Whey Power?

What type of exercise should I do to lose fat?
A combination of Cardiovascular and Resistance Training.
Cardio: Include high intensity sprints such as Tabata Sprints as well as some long, slow distance – include varied types of cardio training – tempo, paced etc. Having a coach is really good for providing training variety and intensity. And also preventing you from over-training and getting sick or injured. Choose  activities that you enjoy for exercise compliance. Consistency over time is key!

Resistance Training: Bodyweight, or Boot camp or Traditional Resistance Training. My personal favourite is Russian Kettlebell training, as it is a combination of strength-endurance and cardio – so I don’t have to do cardio separately.

Are there alternative meal plans? (I don’t wish to do intermittent fasting) Yes! We have many options on our website. Click here

1 Espresso that has cooled
Blend with ice

Pinch of Himalayan or Kalahari Salt (Optional)
Blend with ice

5) Cinnabon Bliss:
1 Scoop Whey Power
1-2 Tablespoons almond butter
1 Banana
1 Spoon of raw honey
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Vanilla essence

6) Chocolate Cha-Cha:
1 Scoop Whey Power
1 Tablespoon raw cocoa or a few rows of Lindt 90% or 95%

And of course any combination of fruits or nut butters together with 1`scoop Whey Power blended with ice.
For example:
Banana and peanut butter
Strawberry and almond butter (plus cocoa)

NOTE: If you prefer a THICK, rich texture (as pure whey protein is always thin), then include AVO in your blend.
AVO!!! AND Whey Power blended together form a rich and creamy “pudding” that can form the base for any of the above combinations.

You won’t taste the avo as it always assumes the more dominant flavour. For example…
9) My personal favourite:
1 Avo
1 Scoop Whey Power
1 Tablespoon raw cocoa or a few rows of Lindt 90% or 95%
Pinch of Himalayan or Kalahari Salt
(Optional: 1 Spoon of raw honey or a few dates)
