Whey protein

Our grass-fed whey protein contains no additives or preservatives and is 100% organic. One scoop of our natural whey will provide you with a punch of protein, providing all the essential amino acids to help you meet your goals.

There are a large number of protein powders available today on the market. This is partly due to the increased awareness of the importance of the nutrient for supporting muscle growth and overall health. However, not all protein powders are created equal. Before purchasing, you should first consider the quality of the product.

We provide a guarantee that our natural whey is sourced from the milk of organically-raised cows from small pastures in Germany. The foamy, top layer of this milk is processed using delicate methods to produce a biologically-active whey protein concentrate

 

Key health aspects of PLENT organic whey protein

Our high-quality whey is one of the best available on the market, with a staggering 80% protein content, and a complete array of essential amino acids, all while having no artificial ingredients. Wow!

 

High protein content (80%)

Our high-quality powder consists of a whopping 80% protein! That means for every 20-gram scoop, you will get 16 grams of complete protein! This is one of the highest protein-by-weight ratios available on the market today.

This exceptionally-high ratio is one reason that our whey protein is very popular among those aspiring to gain muscle. It can be difficult to reach the necessary daily protein needs each day without increasing food intake considerably. This may be due to the lower protein content of the foods you are consuming.

 

Complete protein

We already know that not all protein powders are created equal, but what about protein itself? The same applies here. Protein sources can be categorized as either complete, incomplete or complementary. These are labels that describe the amino acid content of the protein source.

Amino acids are the building blocks of all protein, and there are 20 naturally occurring ones. We can make some of these in the body, however, there are nine that we must consume in our foods, the essential amino acids. Complete proteins contain all the essential amino acids, and incomplete proteins do not.


Anabolic Impact

Whey protein is shown to be one of the highest-quality protein sources in the human diet! This is based on both the completeness of the protein along with the ‘anabolic response’.

The ‘anabolic response’ is the increase in muscle-building systems (protein synthesis) that occurs after ingesting protein. Whey protein is believed to have a more dramatic impact on this response because of the high-digestibility and rapid availability of the isolated amino acids.

 

Digestibility

The final important benefit of whey protein is the high level of digestibility it has compared to food sources of protein. This is because the protein has been isolated into a highly-concentrated powder that can be absorbed more rapidly when ingested.

When food sources of protein are consumed, they contain a range of other nutrients, which can impair the absorption of the protein. This is especially important in plant-sources of protein. That is one reason why our grass-fed whey protein is a fantastic option for vegetarians.

 

Key benefits of protein

This is a section that highlights the key benefits of protein in general, not specifically whey protein. However, our whey protein powder can help you to achieve your daily protein goals, and thus reap the benefits of doing so.

 

Muscle gain

It is recommended that we consume at least 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight each day/ However, many studies have shown, that for optimal health, the target should be a lot higher.

 

Weight loss

Another emerging benefit of increased protein in the diet is the helpful impact it can have on weight loss. This is partly due to the reducing effect that protein has on the diet. Additionally, protein requires more energy to break down, which will contribute to burned energy, and thus weight loss.

Finally, protein is essential for maintaining and building muscle tissue. This type of tissue burns energy and is known to be metabolically active. When we diet, however, some of the energy needed by our bodies is sourced from stored muscle. When this happens, we naturally reduce the amount of energy we burn throughout the day, which slows the weight loss process.

By keeping protein intake high, it has been shown that we can offset the loss of this important muscle mass, and keep our body burning energy at a higher rate.
