Top Secret Nutrition® 100% Whey Protein contains all of the essential amino acids required in the daily diet. It has the ideal combination of amino acids to improve body composition and enhance athletic performance.
Top Secret Nutrition® 100% Whey Protein is a rich source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are essential for athletes, due to their ability to metabolize directly into the muscle tissue and be utilized during the initial periods of exercise and resistance training.
Top Secret Nutrition® 100% Whey Protein provides the body with over 5.7 grams of BCAAs to replenish depleted levels, and accelerate the repair and rebuilding of lean muscle tissue.
Top Secret Nutrition® 100% Whey Protein is an excellent source of the essential amino acid, leucine. Leucine is important for athletes as it plays a key role in promoting muscle protein synthesis and muscle growth.
What Is AstraGin™?
AstraGin™ is a proprietary all natural plant derived compound extracted from highly fractionated Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus using a proprietary pharmaceutical extraction and processing technology. AstraGin™ is the first and only natural compound that has been demonstrated in vitro, in vivo, and in human studies to significantly promote and improve the absorption ofamino acids, glucose, and vitamins at the cellular level, i.e., greater amount of these nutrients are transported from the blood stream into cells, rather than floating in blood stream, for improved bioavailability.
How AstraGin™ WorksThe basic mode of action for AstraGin™ is to increase the absorption of amino acids, glucose, and vitamins through the regulation and paralleled alteration on both the protein and mRNA expression levels of the nutrient transporter genes.The Specific Health Benefits of AstraGin™In vitro, in vivo, and human studies have demonstrated that AstraGin™ can significantly increase (up-regulate) or decrease (down-regulate) the following specific bio markers:
- Increases the steady-state absorption rate of amino acids such as Arginine and Tryptophan by 66.7% and 52.5%*
- Increases vitamin absorption by 50% as studied with Folic Acid*
- Increases intestinal glucose absorption by 57% that is converted to glycogen in muscle cells*
- Increases ATP production by 18%*
- Helps support healthy blood glucose and insulin levels*
- Increase glycogen in muscle cells (24 hours after strenuous exercise) by 60%*

- Health Notes
Whey ProteinWhey Protein
- 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:
Used for Amount WhyAthletic Performance 20 grams daily up to 1.2 grams of per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day [2 stars]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.Hepatitis 3 to 4.5 grams twice per day [1 star]In one trial, supplementing with whey protein improved blood measures of liver dysfunction in people with hepatitis B.HIV and AIDS Support Refer to label instructions [1 star]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.Immune Function Refer to label instructions [1 star]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.Obesity Refer to label instructions [1 star]Whey protein may aid weight loss due to its appetite-suppressing effect.Osteoporosis Refer to label instructions [1 star]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
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
