New VP2® raises the benchmark in high-performance protein supplementation. Using Advanced ProteinTechnology, VP2® incorporates a new proprietary "Micro-Fraction-Isolation" (MFI™) and "ControlledChymotrypsin-Trypsin Hydrolysis" (CCTH™) technology that isolates specific and potent individual protein fractions. Once isolated, these potent protein fractions are then cleaved into precise peptide lengths for scientifically proven higher nitrogen retention. This entire process is performed under cool, non-acidic conditions to ensure complete protein integrity. VP2® is a new protein - a potent, precision protein formulation based on the latest discoveries in protein biochemistry. VP2® yields a near perfect "amino-specific" nutrient profile designed to increase muscle nitrogen absorption and retention to support lean muscle growth and repair.
Now with absorption enhancing Aminogen®!
Newly formulated VP2® takes the latest in enzyme technology to double and even triple the rate of protein absorption. By adding patented Aminogen® to VP2® research shows this increased absorption rate raises levels of free amino acids by 100%, Branched-Chain Amino Acid levels (BCAAs) by 250%, Arginine by 80%, and Glutamine by 90% more than without the patented enzyme system.3 The study also reports that adding Aminogen® increases nitrogen retention by 32%.3 New VP2® delivers more nutrients, more amino acids,and more protein to your muscles!
VP2® Whey Isolate Is The Only Whey Protein Clinically Proven To Build Lean Muscle
In a recent double blind clinical study at one of the world's leading universities, subjects taking VP2® over a 12 week period gained an average of 11 pounds of lean mass and lost an average of 3.14 pounds of body fat.1 No other protein made has been clinically proven to produce results of this magnitude. How much more effective is VP2® Whey Isolate when compared to other proteins? Over 615% more effective! In this study, subjects taking VP2® Whey Isolate gained an average of 6 times more lean muscle mass and lost significantly more body fat that subjects taking other protein.
In another controlled study, VP2® Whey Isolate produced an increase in Type 1 muscle fiber size by411% and Type 2 muscle fiber size by 543%. 2 This study also revealed that when VP2® is combined with AST Micronized Creatine, fast twitch muscle fiber size is increased as much as 1230% greater than gains seen with other proteins.

- Supplement Facts
Add 1 heaping scoop to 8 oz. of your favorite cold liquid (water, milk, etc.). VP2® starts dissolving quickly. Just a few turns with a spoon or shakes in a shaker bottle and it’s completely mixed and ready to drink. When to use: Take 1 serving of VP2® 30 minutes before training and another serving immediately after training. On non-training days use VP2® 2 or 3 times daily.

- Health Notes
Whey Protein for Sports & FitnessWhey Protein
Why Do Athletes Use It?*
Some athletes say that whey protein serves as another protein choice in their diets.
What Do the Advocates Say?*
Protein is necessary for rebuilding tissue-this is especially important for bodybuilders. All types of protein provide the body with amino acids. From an athletic point of view, whey is just another type of protein. Choosing whey protein over other types of protein simply adds variety to the protein choices available.
Whey is a common ingredient in many meal replacements, which are designed to provide a large amount of nutrients in a minimal amount of calories.
How Much Is Usually Taken by Athletes?
Animal studies suggest that whey protein can increase gains in lean body mass resulting from exercise.1 A controlled trial found that six weeks of strength training while taking 1.2 grams of whey protein per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day resulted in greater gains in lean body mass, but improved only one out of four strength tests.2 Another controlled study found that people taking 20 grams per day of whey protein for three months performed better on a test of short-term intense cycling exercise than people taking a similar amount of milk protein (casein).3 However, a double-blind trial found that men taking 1.5 grams per 2.2 lbs of body weight per day of predigested whey protein for 12 weeks along with a strength-training exercise program gained only half as much lean body mass and had significantly smaller increases in strength compared with men using a similar amount of predigested casein along with strength training.4 A controlled study of HIV-infected women found that adding whey protein to strength-training exercise was no more effective than exercise alone for increasing strength or improving body composition.5*Athletes and fitness advocates may claim benefits for this supplement based on their personal or professional experience.
