The Benefits of Whey Protein


Whey protein offers the benefits of supplying high nutritional value and branched chain amino acids (BCAA) to athletes. BCAA are essential amino acids, which are part of muscle protein. They may preserve muscle glycogen stores and help reduce the amount of protein breakdown during exercise. Additionally, the natural components of whey help to enhance the body;s production of glutathione, a natural antioxidant, which may provide dietary support to the immune system. Whey also yields a high biological value, which measures usable grams of amino acids used by the body after intense exercise.

Depending on your athletic goals, your protein requirements can vary. Inadequate protein in your diet can limit muscle protein synthesis which can compromise your athletic goals. The amino acids from whey protein move quickly through the digestive system. The consumption of these proteins will result in a rapid rise in blood amino acids and stimulate protein synthesis.



Whey protein can be taken immediately before and/or after your workout to support muscle protein synthesis.
Pro Performance Quality
This advanced protein supplement is instantized making it easy-to-mix and dissolve quickly water. It's also low temperature treated, which delivers one of the highest quality forms of whey protein.Because the body requires protein as a source of amino acids, Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein supplementation is important for all athletes who seek an increased protein intake while working out. Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein supplies high-quality protein to meet these needs.Typical Naturally Occurring Amino Acids Per Serving:

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    Good price on sale - get chunks in bottom of glass even after using shake blender. Unflavored means it can be mixed into many recipes to boost protein content. My kids love muffins - and they have no idea that they have extra protein mixed in.

    This is the only "unflavored" protein that I've been able to find. I won't use anything but the unflavored because it has no artificial sweeteners!

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    I work out 3x/wk for an hour with the goal of increasing muscle mass while maintaining my fat percentage. Pre-workout I eat a serving of the protein powder in water with a handful of raisins. After workout I'll have a serving of the protein in water between each meal and then once before bed. It's now been 4 months and I've gained about 10lbs and body fat percent has remained unchanged.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    We have a 5-year-old child that refuses to eat anything other than baby foods and pureed things such as yogurts. We needed to get more protein in his diet so that he did not continue to lose weight. We found the protein powder very helpful. We mix it in his hot cereals with milk and he does not seem to notice any difference in taste.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    My doctor suggested a banana a day for potassium and protein for maintaining muscle mass. I tried flavored proteins and they are all way too sweet. A couple scoops of this with a banana, some yogurt, and berries makes a great breakfast. You will do well to mix it with a stick blender for a creamy shake. I wish they carried this in-store for times I may run out.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    I use this product everyday to boost my protein intake. I've tried a few other flavors, but after a while you get tired of the flavor. I mix this with water and a flavored water additive (i.e. crystal light packages). There are many flavors to choose from and you never get tired of the taste. It also mixes very well in a blender bottle.
    I just wish they would sell it in the 5lbs tub.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    I make my own protein shakes - this stuff plus milk - and to me it just tastes like milk - but thicker. My doctor wants me drinking 80g of protein a day, and this stuff makes it a snap =D

    My only real gripe about this stuff is that it says it should be easy to mix with a spoon, and that hasn't been my experience at all. It leaves these slimy little chunks ^_^' But if you put it in the blender for just a few seconds - it eliminates that problem.

    I mix this product with 8 oz. of skim milk 2-3 times per day, usually as a "snack." I utilize this product as a dietary supplement to ensure that I am getting the recommended protein requirements, as dictated by my post-gastric bypass surgery needs.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    I was beginning to think whey protein drinks just weren't for me b/c I avoid sugar and [while I know most of these powders contain sucralose or stevia] all the ones I've tried have been WAY TOO SWEET! Nasty, nasty no matter which flavor I've tried or how weak I've made them!

    This stuff, however, is great! I just blended a scoop with some unsweetened almond milk, half of a pureed banana and a few drops of vanilla extract and - voila! - delicious! It made the milk a tad thicker but no clumps and no flavor change that I could tell. I look forward to finding ways to use this and maybe even sneaking a little into my kids food/drinks as well - thx. GNC!

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    This is a great product. It's almost impossible to find an "unflavored" protein supplement, and almost all the flavored ones are overly/sickeningly sweetened or you burnout on the flavor that is OK. This is great for making whatever flavor you want. After WLS I've had to use protein supplements at least once a day to get enough and with this I have mixed it with milk and Torani syrup (usually sugar free) to get any flavor I want in a strength that isn't over powering or too weak. It's also been great to add to soups and sauces so that I don't feel limited by "having" to only have a shake to get the protein I need. I just wish they sold it in the larger sizes like the 2lb. jug or the 5lb. bags like they do with the flavored ones.

    Had weight loss surgery 2 years ago and tired of all the sweet proteins. Been using an unflavored protein from a small company but it was very expensive. This GNC unflavored protein is light, easy to mix, truly no flavor or weird aftertaste. And it's by far the the least expensive!

    I've been looking for something with no Ace k, aspartame, suralose, etc. basically nothing with no junk in it thats going to hurt me on the long run. I love that it mixes well and it doesnt have a bad taste at all! I mix it in the blender for smoothies or in my mixer cup. I have no issues with mixing it at all. Just a few shakes and its good to go! I use vanilla soy or almond milk and or chocolate and it taste fine. I needed something to take after my weight training workouts. I will be buying some more since its on sale today!

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    My muscles were breaking down due to inadequate protein supplementation after my WLS. I tried just about every type of protein on the market and they all made me gag. One day I bought a bulk no brand flavorless whey and that sent me on a mission. Forget the Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Sucralose, Asulfume K, etc. I wanted a flavorless, unsweetened protien. I make my own flavors, I use my own sweetner of choice.

    I make my own flavor combinations with Vanilla Extract, Hot Chocolate or Coffee. Whatever I choose, this protein is the absolute BEST tasteless protein I've found. I go through about 4lbs/mo as I must supplement daily. The price can't be beat and the ingredient list is short and sweet. It mixes almost instantly, and you can blend it without it becoming foamy (as long as you're careful not to overblend). I can mix the perfect flavor, this is the perfect protein supplement. I use this for milk based flavors, and the Pro Performance Pure Isolate 28 for fruity/tart flavors.

     
    Will continue to buy 2 jugs at a time.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    we have added this to our mom's food 3 times daily since she had open heart surgery in 2008. She had a problem getting enough protein. It has really helped her and she is on dialysis 3 times a week but she can have this since it is whey. So, thank you for a great product. We add it to coffee in the morning, soup or something that she can't really taste it in. This is the only place we can get the unflavored.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    I use this protein to mix frozen smoothies for my wife and I. It is a lot better to use than the flavored powders because it doesn't over-power the fruits that I use to make the smoothies with.
    I wish that GNC would package the "unflavored" in the 2 lbs. tub though like the others.

    This is a great product. It's exactly what you'd expect. It is flavorless, and takes on other flavors well. I combine it with almond milk and coffee in the morning, and it dissolves 100%, and tastes fine, with no caloric sugar or chemical sweeteners. Great for baking, too, I've used it in cakes, cookies, and energy bars for some extra protein.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    I'm in my 50s. I have been athletic all of my life and I am a non-vegan vegetarian. I do yoga, cardio, weight-lifting and martial arts working out 5 days per week.

    ProPerformance Unflavored Whey Protein supplements my diet and gives me a bodybuilding/fitness edge. I combine 20g with 1g of creatine monohydrate and 2g of glucosamine. I blend it in 24oz of skim milk and pour it over shredded wheat, oats and a variety of chopped-up fruit every morning.

    It is unquestionably bland, but It does not taste like chemicals to me -- as another reviewer suggested. I think this is a matter of personal taste. I originally tried the strawberry flavored whey protein and it was so sickeningly sweet that I returned it for the unflavored version. To my taste the flavoring was un-natural. It contained sucralose/acesulfame artificial sweeteners.

    The only thing that could make this product better is a larger size -- like 5lbs. I buy several month's worth at a time and the larger sizes offered for flavored versions cost much less per pound.

    Comments about GNC PRO PERFORMANCE GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Unflavored:

    Unfortunately there is nothing good about this one at all. It's just plain nasty tasting. I tried everything I could to not have to waste the whole container. Tried it in yogurt, oatmeal, shakes, even put into a banana bread recipe. No matter what I use it in you can still taste it. Says unflavored but tasting nasty chemicals is not unflavored. I would totally avoid this one if I were you unless you want to spend time gagging it down. Guess I'll be throwing the whole container away. Don't get me wrong though. I've tried the berry, chocolate, and vanilla. They're perfectly fine. This one just makes you gag.
