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 M2 MARKED™ 100% Whey Protein Complex – Gourmet Chocolate:

    I've only gone through one tub of this stuff so far but I've been thoroughly impressed by the fast recovery times. I use to be sore for 4+ days after leg day which really reduced my cardio workouts on the days following. Now, I'm hardly ever sore more than 2 days and it's usually tolerable enough on the night of day 2 to be able to play some basketball or something. Great for people trying to work a a lot of cardio on/between lifting days

    Comments about M2 MARKED™ 100% Whey Protein Complex – Gourmet Chocolate:

    GOD DARN TUTTY FRUITY BATMAN!
    This is by far the sweetest shake I have ever tried. It is sweeter than a non-protein shake, with ice cream and what not. I mix it with over 16 ounces of water and it still gets to me how sweet it is. This is not an exaggeration, I truly dislike it. I have given it so many chances and only drink it when I'm low on the GNC brand or MP shakes but I have had it for over 6 months and it is well over the half way mark. Not good Marky Mark.

      one of the best tasting chocolate protein powders i've had, not sweet and doesn't have a chemical or synthetic taste. I mix with 1% milk and it mixes fairly well, mixes better with a blender than in a shaker cup. PRICEY - i only bought it because i it was BOGO

            I really think this mix works well, and it tastes GREAT to me (the Chocolate one, have not tried other flavors). I really like it as much as a regular shake. I really believe this shake is making a difference in me. No side effects or issues after 45 days. I have been taking this right after a workout, and I have been taking the Marked pre-workout mix about 20-30 prior to workout. This mix is not as strong as other pre-workout mixes, but that is great for me personally. I don't want to come out of my shoes with a product, rather I just want to be set up to have a good workout. I strongly recommend both.

Taking this three times a day(breakfast, pre-, and post-workout) I went from benching 135 to benching 195 in about 2 1/2 weeks. I reccomend this for anyone who wants to put on some extra muscle.

                Comments about M2 MARKED™ 100% Whey Protein Complex – Gourmet Chocolate:

                I was only able to use 1 scoop out of this because it tore my stomach up pretty bad. Turns out I can't have whey. No fault of the product at all, my stomach just didn't agree with it. It's a shame too because this is by far the best tasting shake I have ever had.
