What is WHEY protein?
WHEY protein is a white powder, made up of proteins from cow’s milk. It allows a protein supplementation meaning a protein intake in addition to daily meals. (For more information on the utility of proteins, do not hesitate to have a look on our product on the following link: Strength and Recovery Powder – Whey Protein
What is it for?
For athletes, WHEY protein is useful for:
Muscle reconstruction: These proteins contained in this product stimulate protein synthesis for muscle reconstruction after exercise.
Recovery: Protein consumption allows a faster recovery. This allows athletes to return to training with all their physical abilities.
Performance: The intake of protein helps to maintain or even increase muscle mass. This gain in muscle mass allows an increase in performance.
The WHEY protein can also be useful for people who do not eat enough protein in their daily meals.
Indeed, it can be used as a snack or could be added to certain preparations for people who have insufficient protein intake.
For all the above reason, the Pulsaar Team created Strength and Recovery Powder – Whey Protein, a protein powder made from 3 different whey protein types:
1) Whey Protein Isolate: It is derived from whey from which almost all lactose and fat have been removed. It is therefore composed mainly of proteins and immunoglobulins.
Its absorption by our body is very fast.
2) calcium caseinate: it comes from skimmed milk. This protein is a source of calcium which is good for strengthening our bones. Its absorption is a little slower than the whey protein isolate
3) and micellar casein: it is a natural constituent of milk. Its absorption time is very slow (about 7 hours for a fasted person). Thus, it allows releasing amino acids for many hours, therefore allowing muscle synthesis.
Why is it interesting?
These different types of protein can stimulate protein synthesis in order to rebuild muscle fibers. Our muscles are made up thanks to those.
However, not all these proteins are assimilated in the same way. As a matter of fact, it does not take the same time for our body to digest each of them. Therefore it does not make them all available at the same time.
This muscle reconstruction requires a little time, so our WHEY Protein Powder allows to accompany and deliver the nutrients needed by our muscles over the hours and avoid muscle catabolism (muscle breakdown).
A “Whey” rich in protein but low in fat!
Athletes usually looking for products that are high in protein but with the least possible lipids.
The main ingredients within Pulsaar’s WHEY Protein Powder are whey protein isolate which is very low in lipids.
Thanks to this choice it has been possible to greatly reduce lipids included in Pulsaar Whey protein. The amount of fat is two to three times lower than some other products you can find on the market. However, the Strength and Recovery Powder – Whey Protein of Pulsaar is just as protein-rich as its competitors.
The Pulsaar WHEY protein has a complete amino acid profile. As a matter of fact, all the essential amino acids that our body is not able to synthesize (so these must come from food intake) are in this product.
All these characteristics make of the Strength and Recovery Powder – Whey Protein a particularly complete and good quality protein supplement.
