Description
HIGH-QUALITY, FAST DIGESTING
  • 24 g of Ultra-Microfiltered Whey Protein
  • Supports Muscle Recovery and Growth
  • Great-Tasting & Low Carb Formula
Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein delivers an ultra-high quality macronutrient protein formula with high amounts of naturally occurring amino acids the body needs every day. Whey protein is essential in any nutrition regimen, regardless of age or activity, providing a catalyst to the body for protein synthesis and muscle growth. Far superior to other protein supplements, this advanced formula will provide your body with the pure, clean, high-quality protein you need to fuel muscles while maximizing recovery. Don't take chances with your results – get GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein and feed your body what it needs.

THE PRO PERFORMANCE® RESULTS ADVANTAGE
When GNC's team of research scientists looked to improve this 100% Whey Protein formula, they knew the answer was "more," specifically through a higher protein formula to enhance nitrogen retention. Your muscles can only grow when your body retains enough nitrogen. And one of the most effective sources of nitrogen for fueling lean muscle mass is whey protein. The specially manufactured, ultra-microfiltered whey protein found in this formula delivers naturally-occurring anabolic amino acids into your bloodstream. This spike in aminos provides nitrogen and subsequently creates a nitrogen-rich environment needed for maximum muscle protein synthesis. Protein synthesis is crucial to the building of lean muscle mass.

THE PRO PERFORMANCE® QUALITY ADVANTAGE
GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein is also tested for banned substances, providing peace of mind in the highest quality formulation. Our researchers created a superior whey protein formula that not only delivers rapid muscle fueling results, but every flavor has a satisfying, delicious, mouth-watering taste profile. Each serving mixes up instantly with a blender, shaker, or a spoon – it's that smooth and it couldn't be easier. This GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein is our best-tasting whey protein formula ever.

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

      I had gastric bypass 6 years back and I really got tired of those protien shakes so I tried a tablespoon of it in my coffee and it is great. Plus with me it curbs a little side effect of coffee. If you drink a lot of coffee you know what I mean.

          I use this one to make waffles. I also use it for shakes. After I tried it, I bought flavored powder for the shakes and will keep this for fruit smooothies and my waffles. It feels me up. I am not hungry as a bear after I run when I eat these waffles first. I have never had any aches or pain after races, running, or working out since using this product.

            This is the only protein powder I've found that is unsweetened, unflavored, and free of dyes, and it works really well. It dissolves in room temp or cold liquid, and when dissolved in water it just tastes like watery milk. Very basic and subtle and easy to work with.

            I use whey every morning to make a breakfast protein shake and at other times when I need a protein boost. I had gastric bypass surgery 8 years ago and need to maintain a high protein diet. I chose unflavored whey to try new shake recipes. I always mix with milk. This whey protein clumped a little but not bad and with additional milk and/or blending, it became smoother. You can definitely taste the whey so I needed to add a sugar free sweetener. I am hoping to incorporate it into basic recipes to increase protein values. I would definitely recommend it! You may need to experiment with it to find how it works best for you.

                        I make a fruit smoothie every morning with this product. I have more energy and it helps keep me feeling full until lunchtime.

                        I mix it with juice and fruit for my am smoothies. It does not over power other flavors. I was not easy to mix with dips and drinks leaving a grainy texture to them.
