What is Amplified 100% Whey Protein and Why is it Better than Regular Whey?

Think ordinary whey protein is good enough? Think again. Introducing the latest breakthrough in whey! Amplified 100% Whey Protein features technology-enhanced protein with hydrolysates clinically proven to deliver more amino acids into the blood stream - better and faster than regular whey! The result.... more amino acids support athletic strength, performance, endurance, and recovery. This is the cutting edge protein product that delivers a whole new level of protein technology.
The Amplified 100% Whey Protein Evolution.


What makes this protein AMPlified? Using cutting-edge technology and top notch research and development principles, this protein was designed to be the new champion of the whey protein category.


Micronized Protein with Hydrolysates and Amino Acids - This premium whey features micronized whey protein with hydrolysates, leucine and glutamine! Using MicroSorb™ Amino Technology, the micronized whey protein and amino acids in this formula have been pulverized into smaller particles that are easier to absorb. As a result, Amplified 100% Whey Protein is proven to deliver superior amino acid uptake compared to regular whey. That means more amino acids are available for your muscles to use as fuel! These key amino acids all support proteins involved in muscle building, recovery and other key processes crucial to your muscles.


Amino Acceleration System - To make this protein even more absorbable, a unique digestive enzyme blend was included as an Amino Acceleration System. These efficacious enzymes were scientifically designed to further accelerate the availability of amino acids for absorption


More Key Aminos - In addition to an impressive 4.5 grams of leucine for muscle protein synthesis and 3.5 grams of glutamine to support the recovery process, this formula is loaded with an array of aminos necessary for your muscles before, during and after workouts.


Tri-MG™ - Amplified 100% Whey Protein is enhanced with this unique clinically studied ingredient, also known as betaine or trimethylglycine, which has been shown to enhance athletic performance


Who Can Benefit from Taking Amplified 100% Whey Protein?


Everyone including athletes, fitness enthusiasts and extreme sports competitors who are exercising regularly and looking for a fast-absorbing quality protein to help meet protein needs can benefit from Amplified 100% Whey Protein.
When Should I Take It?


Consume GNC Pro Performance® AMP Amplified 100% Whey Protein with or between meals to add more quality protein to your diet.
The Proof is in the Amino Absorption -AND More-
Faster Absorption of Critical Amnio

Acids for Muscle Fuel:

A clinical study has proven that the proprietary protein blend in Amplified 100% Whey Protein delivers more critical aminos into the blood stream - better and faster than regular whey!.Compared to regular whey protein, two servings of Amplified 100% Whey Protein maximized amino acid absorption by delivering:
  • 107% More Total Amino Acids - These critical amino acids are crucial to feeding your muscles before, during and after exercise.
  • 114% More Branched Chain Amino Acids Absorbed 142% Faster - BCAA are involved in reducing the amount of protein breakdown from exercise and help to preserve muscle glycogen stores.
  • 234% More Leucine Absorbed 370% Faster!

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

    As far as protein powders, this is my favorite one. It doesn't taste bad which is nice to start, and when I drink it after a workout, I feel less sore than without it. I also see noticeable size gains which is always encouraging.

      The taste isn't bad, but if i used a Blender bottle, was left with lots of unmixed powder. Using electric blender fixed that, but didn't want to always get the blender out. Taking with milk tasted much better than plain water. Probably won't get this again because trying to eliminate Soy from my diet as much as possible.

        I've been looking for a product to use as a meal replacement, but also to help recover and increase protein intake. The Whey-Protein formula has been working much better than I had expected. It actually tastes pretty good without even adding anything else in. I will definitely be buying more.
