Description
PURE WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE
  • Provides Over 6g of BCAA per Serving to Support Muscles
  • Fast-Absorbing Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate
  • 28g of High-Quality Whey Protein per Serving
FAST MUSCLE NUTRITION WITH PURE WHEY ISOLATE PROTEIN
GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Isolate is dually-processed using scientifically advanced micro-filtration and ion-exchange processes to ensure an isolated whey protein that contains one of the highest percentages of protein with almost zero lactose and fat. This advanced isolation method helps us deliver the unrivaled quality you would expect from GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Isolate.

GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Isolate is an extremely high-quality source of amino acids including BCAA (branched chain amino acids). The body needs these amino acids to build, repair and maintain your muscles. The amino acids from whey protein isolate can help preserve muscle energy stores and help reduce the amount of protein breakdown during exercise.

the natural protein-based components found in the GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Isolate helps to enhance the body's production of glutathione, a natural antioxidant, providing dietary support to the immune system. Whey Isolate is rapidly absorbed and delivers a fast supply of amino acids to drive protein synthesis. Taken before and after your workout, GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Isolate helps you achieve and maximize your results!

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

Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Whey Isolate 28 - Strawberries and Cream:

This is a protein powder that I will be overly excited to be finished with. The taste is absolutely horrible, leaving a bad aftertaste, hard to get down and it leaves a chalky feeling in your mouth.
The product for calorie content, fat content, and sugar content is superb. I will without a doubt finish it up, and I am positive I will see gains just as I always have with using whey isolates.

    Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Whey Isolate 28 - Strawberries and Cream:

    My husband and I tried this along with the Chocolate flavor. The strawberry flavor is GROSS!! It's chalky, tastes like Mylanta and we both had a difficult time choking it down. We did just mix with water, but the we did the same with the chocolate and can say that it actually tasted good. NOT so with the strawberry!! We'll be sticking with the chocolate variety and trying the vanilla...

      Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Whey Isolate 28 - Strawberries and Cream:

      Whey Isolate 28 Strawberry is the best tasting protein shake that I have had. It is one of the lowest in cholesterol and highest in protein. The use of a shaker bottle makes it extremely easy to mix.

      I typically drink 8-16 ounces with a snack that has little or no protein. This helps to have some protein with every meal.
