VP2® Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate, Scientifically Proven To Build 615% More Lean Muscle Mass!

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

Whey Protein
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Athletic Performance
Dose: 20 grams daily up to 1.2 grams of per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day
Animal studies suggest that whey protein can increase gains in lean body mass resulting from exercise. One study found that people taking whey protein improved their performance on a test of short-term intense cycling exercise.(more)
Immune Function
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Whey protein appears to improve some aspects of immune function. One trial showed that whey protein increased blood glutathione levels in a group of HIV-infected people.(more)
HIV and AIDS Support
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Whey protein is rich in the amino acid cysteine, which the body uses to make glutathione, an important antioxidant. Supplementing with it may improve immune function.(more)
Osteoporosis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Some whey proteins may reduce bone loss. Milk basic protein (MBP) is a mixture of some of the proteins found in whey protein and has been shown to promote bone density(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Whey protein may aid weight loss due to its appetite-suppressing effect.(more)
Athletic Performance
Dose: 20 grams daily up to 1.2 grams of per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day

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

Osteoporosis
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Some whey proteins may reduce bone loss.1 Milk basic protein (MBP) is a mixture of some of the proteins found in whey protein. A preliminary trial found that 300 mg per day of MBP improved blood measures of bone metabolism in men, suggesting more bone formation was occurring than bone loss.2 A double-blind trial found that women taking 40 mg per day of MBP for six months had greater gains in bone density compared with those taking a placebo.3 No osteoporosis-related research has been done using complete whey protein mixtures.

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Whey protein may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite. In a preliminary study, people were given 48 grams of either whey protein or milk protein (casein). Whey consumption resulted in more hunger satisfaction and reduced the amount of food eaten 90 minutes later compared with casein consumption.1 However, a double-blind study found that men taking 1.5 grams per 2.2 lbs body weight per day of whey protein for 12 weeks along with a low-calorie diet and a strength training exercise program lost the same amount of weight and body fat as did a control group that followed a similar program, but took a casein supplement instead of whey protein.2

Whey protein is a mixture of some of the proteins naturally found in milk. The major proteins found in whey protein include beta-lactoglobulin and alpha-lactalbumin. Whey protein has one of the highest protein digestibility-corrected amino acid scores (PDCAAS; a measure of protein bioavailability) and is more rapidly digested than other proteins, such as casein (another milk protein). 1
