Every athlete needs a good protein powder. The same holds true for endurance athletes, who require about 1.6 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day. Sometimes more. Sometimes less. Obtaining at least adequate daily protein is essential in endurance sports that often tax the legs day after day. Protein helps with recovery from exercise-induced muscle damage and post-exercise soreness, which enables athletes to train with intensity at every training session, and one of the easiest ways to increase protein intake is with a good protein powder supplement. When we say good, we mean the best – a pure source of highly concentrated protein with no unnatural additives.
When it comes to protein, whey isn’t just a good source of protein, it’s the best single source of protein for repairing muscle damage and speeding recovery to keep you running, cycling, and swimming strong. Of all protein sources, whey has the most leucine. WheyElite contains only the purest whey protein isolate which boasts at least 90% protein by weight and cold micro-filtration for virtually no trace fats or carbohydrates. Add in a little bit of natural flavor, a dash of table salt, and some all natural sweeteners in Monk Fruit and Stevia, and that completes the entire formula for the lightly flavored WheyElite, the best protein powder for endurance athletes – not too sweet, simple, and oh so good.
Whey Protein Isolate – Whey Isolate (90% pure protein) is the most potent protein source for enhancing muscle reparation processes, and the elaborate extraction process keeps protein intact while removing nearly all carbohydrates and fats. Whey increases muscle protein synthesis, decreases soreness, accelerates recovery, and boosts immunity.
What is the best way to take WheyElite?
WheyElite is a lightly flavored protein powder that mixes easily in water or milk. Mix 1 serving (1 Scoop) in 8-10oz of water. WheyElite can be used before or after training or throughout the day to help meet protein needs.
What is the difference between WheyElite and RecoverElite? Which one is for after training?
For endurance athletes, RecoverElite features a 4:1 carb to protein ratio for optimal recovery of BOTH muscle glycogen and muscles’ structural integrity (reduces muscle damage). WheyElite contains almost 0 carbohydrates for a more versatile recovery agent that can be consumed any time throughout the day.
What makes WheyElite the “best?”
WheyElite is specifically designed with endurance athletes in mind. It is a lightly flavored, refreshing protein drink with no nonsense ingredients that can have adverse effects. Only the purest natural ingredients can be found in WheyElite.
