What is 100% Whey Protein?
With 100% Whey Protein, the clue is in the name; it’s a protein shake that delivers 100% of its protein from whey. Only the finest undenatured whey is used, with no added sugars, no amino spiking, and no soy protein, giving you the finest protein to supplement your fitness and sporting efforts.
100% Whey Protein contains over 5g of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) per 24g of protein, which are arguably the most crucial amino acids for athletes. The three BCAAs are balanced at a 2:1:1 ratio of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine, giving you the perfect equilibrium in every shake. Our whey protein is extracted during the cheese-making process, made with quality fresh milk under EU regulations, from cattle that are free from banned antibiotics and growth hormones.
When it comes to your body and your nutrition, there’s no point risking mediocre products, and we think 100% Whey is one of the best money can buy.
Who is it for?
100% Whey is ideal for men and women who train regularly, whether at the gym, through sports, or perhaps at workout classes such as yoga or pilates. If you are building and toning muscle mass, then 100% Whey Protein is for you.
100% Whey Protein is a vegetarian product, but it is not suitable for vegans, coeliacs, or anyone under the age of 16.
What are the benefits?
Contains pure whey protein to help build lean muscle mass
No added sugars, artificial colours or flavourings, soy protein or growth hormones
With such hectic lifestyles, ensuring we consume enough protein in our diets to maintain and build muscles is difficult. This is especially true for those training or working out regularly, whose bodies require more protein to adapt to the regular stress exercise places on muscles.
100% Whey Protein contains pure whey protein and amino acids, which are the building blocks of muscle tissue, and branched chain amino acids, which are stored in high concentrates within the muscles.
How to use Reflex 100% Whey Protein?
Consume 2-3 servings daily, ideally before or after a workout.
Mix 35g, which is approximately one heaped 60ml scoop (scoop included in the tub), with 250ml water or skimmed milk in a shaker or blender. These are guidelines and a thicker consistency can be achieved with less liquid, or non-skimmed milk.
Once mixed, drink immediately and do not leave to stand. The scoop measures in millilitres not grams, so for precise measurements we recommend using weighing scales.
How is it made?
Every single batch of 100% Whey is made in our own state of the art factory in the UK. This is also one of the only sports nutrition factories that is registered with the HFL for Informed Sports Drug Testing, to ensure we provide you with only the best in nutrition.
The main ingredients in 100% Whey Protein are whey protein concentrates, which has a very high biological value and are created by separating whey from milk during the cheese-making process. During the cheese-making process, milk is separated to form curds and whey. The whey is collected and treated to get it to its most pure and clean form, which we then use in our excellent high-protein shakes.
How does it taste?
We believe our 100% Whey Protein tastes absolutely delicious and it’s proven to mix easily. With pure natural ingredients, including cocoa powder, we believe we’ve achieved a range of delicious smooth flavours that taste just like a milkshake.
100% Whey Protein comes in four flavours, including:
Strawberries and cream
Vanilla ice cream
The science behind it
Our 100% Whey Protein delivers its protein content from EU sourced milk, produced by grass-fed cattle. Many of our dairies are based in Ireland, and we can guarantee the milk we use is free from banned antibiotics and bovine growth hormone, so you know exactly what you’re putting in your body.
How does this help you? Every time we exercise, we place stress on the muscles, which then need protein in order to recover and grow bigger. Supplementing a healthy diet with protein ensures you are consuming enough high-quality protein to aid your training and reach your physique and strength goals.
BCAAs are proven to help maintain muscle tissue, and preserve glycogen stores, which function as an energy source within the muscles.
100% Whey Protein (all flavours) has been certified as Halal safe by The Halal Trust.
