Whey protein is one of our best selling supplements here at GCP, and based on what we have heard from our clients, there are two reasons for this. The first is that it helps them get great results, and the second is that it tastes great. And we agree, these are the two main purposes of our whey protein. So today, we are going to look into both of those things. First, we will look at what is in our whey protein and how it can help you achieve results. And second, we are going to talk about its taste and some creative ways to use our whey protein in smoothies or other recipes.
Why Whey Works
Our whey contains 18 different amino acids (including all of the essential amino acids) that your body needs to function properly. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which your body uses to build muscle after a workout. These essntial amino acids cannot be produced in your body, but they can be consumed through food. Whey protein is a great way to get these nutrients and help build muscle. It is also an easy way to get more protein in your diet on a daily basis.In addition, Whey protein has been shown to aid in recovery from workouts. This can help reduce fatigue and soreness while getting you ready for your next workout.
- Cold Pressed: Our Whey is cold pressed, as opposed the cheaper and easier hot method which is commonly used. Using this process, the whey is not exposed to heat, which means there is no damage to the vitamins, minerals, or protein in the supplement. This means the ingredients are the highest quality and are in the best condition for your body to utilize.
- Microfiltered: Our Whey is produced using a micro-filtering process. This removes all unwatned simple sugars (lactose), fats, and impurities.This provide top quality protein with no filler.

Mix With Coffee, Oatmeal, or Greek Yogurt
This is a simple way to add some extra flavor to your morning. Adding your favorite flavor of whey to your coffee can add great taste without having to add things like sweetened creamer, sugar, or other flavorings. One of our clients who uses our Cinnamon Bun flavor said it was almost as good as her favorite Starbucks order. Adding it to your yogurt or oatmeal is a great way to get some protein in your diet while also spicing up your breakfast.
