Ultimately whether protein supplements are of value or not will depend on the consumer's specific needs and habitual dietary intake. Many health professionals imply that protein supplementation is unnecessary and that the recommended daily intake for protein is easily achieved via normal dietary intake. However, this argument is based on the assumption that everyone consumes a well balanced diet containing a range of high quality protein sources. In today's hectic world how many people actually achieve this? If you don't achieve your recommended daily intake of protein each and every day, a protein supplement would definitely be of benefit.

Additionally, this argument fails to take into account the differing needs of individuals within our society. What about athletes and/or bodybuilders who want to maximise their lean muscle mass? If you eat three meals per day your protein intake is limited to three intakes per 24 hours. Protein synthesis is a continuous activity that requires a balanced supply of amino acids (3). By consuming protein supplements you can increase the frequency of protein ingestion, which will assist in maintaining blood amino acid concentrations across the day. This may increase protein synthesis (3), which could be of benefit to those wanting to maximise their lean muscle mass.

Many people use WPI to maintain their dietary protein intake while reducing their calories. WPI allows protein to be consumed without the saturated fat, carbohydrate and unnecessary calories that come hand in hand with many whole food protein sources. This can ultimately allow the individual to meet their protein requirements while maintaining a low calorie intake.

The recommended protein intake for adult individuals who are inactive or sedentary is 0.75g/kg/day (6). This means that if you are a 70kg office worker that does no exercise your daily protein intake would be 0.75g x 70kg = 52.5g per day. However, it is generally accepted that those involved in exercise or training have higher protein requirements. Those involved in strength and weight training are generally advised to consume around 1.6-1.7g/kg/day, while those involved in endurance training (e.g. triathlons) are generally advised to consume around 1.2-1.4g/kg/day. Therefore, if you were a 100kg bodybuilder, you would be advised to consume around 1.7g x 100kg = 170g protein per day. Likewise if you were a 65kg Triathlete you would be advised to consume 1.4g x 65kg = 91g protein per day.

One of the advantages of consuming Body Science WPI protein and performing resistance training during calorie restriction is that it helps maintain your lean muscle mass (1). This is important as lean muscle tissue burns calories and helps ensure your metabolic rate remains high. Lets remember that it is fat (not weight) that you want to lose. If you lose muscle mass during energy restriction your metabolic rate will drop and it will make it increasingly difficult to lose the desired body fat. However, maintaining an adequate protein intake while simultaneously restricting your calorie intake can be difficult as many protein sources are also high in fat and calories. Body Science WPI protein contains very little fat. If you take Body Science WPI as an example, one 30-gram serve provides around 26grams of protein. To achieve this protein intake (26 grams) from a whole food source such as eggs you would need around four eggs. However, a 30g serve of Body Science contains less than 1g of fat, whereas 4 eggs contains approximately 19g of fat – quite a difference.

WPI is derived from the process by which cheese is made from milk. In reality it is actually a by-product of the cheese making process. Via a number of purifying processes the final product sold as WPI contains upward of 80% protein.

The Body Science Whey protein isolate is written as WPI, while whey protein concentrate is written as WPC. Although they are both considered whey protein, they vary in their composition and the manufacturing processes involved in their production. WPI has a greater protein content than WPC – WPI is around 90% protein, while WPC is approximately 80% (4). The Body Science WPI is a specialized blend of WPI and Hydrolysed WPI. Hydrolysed WPI is written as HWPI. HWPI is produced by a proprietary controlled enzyme treatment of whey protein isolate to form the highest quality amino acids, peptides and polypeptides. The controlled enzyme treatment is a carefully monitored process to ensure the essential amino acids remain intact and the protein remains high in quality.

Body Science WPI is a a world class precision WPI protein intended to fuel muscle nitrogen assimilation and preservation to support both lean muscle growth and stimulate anabolic activity and muscle recovery. Body Science WPI also includes the amino acid glycine to increase efficiency. This is good news for trainers who want a fast acting protein for maximum muscle recovery and growth. Body Science WPI also contains no added sugar and is free from artificial sweeteners. It is sweetened using the natural plant based sweetener stevia. And, as if that’s not enough, Body Science WPI is also Informed-Sport certified. This is the best standard in supplement quality control, as it requires every batch of our WPI to be tested before release to market. This means every batch of Body Science WPI is tested in the LGC Sport Science laboratory in Cambridge, UK, for over 146 substances listed on the WADA and other prohibited substances lists before we release it for sale or make available to an athlete or team.

Now do you understand why Body Science WPI is the WPI of choice for more elite teams in Australia than any other brand?  So if you are looking for a high quality protein supplement to maintain or increase your lean muscle mass and aid your recovery then try Body Science WPI. With minimal calories and low fat it compliments any healthy diet and training regime and has a recommended dose of 1 x 30g serve per day.
