High quality New Zealand whey protein from pristine herds in New Zealand!
About whey protein
Whey protein is a naturally complete protein that provides essential and non essential amino acids to support healing, muscle building, muscle and tissue recovery, energy and the immune system.* Whey protein is a great source of branched chain amino acids for muscle support, precursors for glutathione production as well as alpha-lactalbumin and immunoglobulins for immune system support.*
Optimal Pro Chocolate is:
- Rich in branched chain amino acids
- Great tasting and easily mixed making it the perfect base for any health shake or smoothie
- Combined with Fibersol-2TM brand fiber to support regularity*
- Active Lifestyles
- Athletes, body builders and people who exercise
- Low calorie diets as adding whey protein to a mid-day snack or beverage provides healthy energy and may help control food intake at the next meal
- Restricted diets
Athletes, Body Builders and Active Lifestyles
Branched Chain Amino Acids benefit muscle metabolism and provide energy directly to muscle tissue.* The body requires higher amounts of branched chain amino acids during and following exercise as they are taken up directly by the skeletal muscles versus first being metabolized through the liver, like other amino acids. Low BCAA levels contribute to fatigue and they should be replaced in one-hour or less following exercise or participation in a competitive event.
Low Calorie or Restricted Diet
One serving provides 21 grams or 80% high quality protein. It’s a delicious, low calorie, low fat, low carbohydrate drink mix supplement that is sugar free! Optimal Pro Chocolate is
a great addition to any weight management program, not as a meal replacement, but as
a source of energy and to curb appetite.* Many find their appetite at mealtime is reduced when they used our Optimal Pro Chocolate as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack.*
Immune System Support*
Whey protein naturally contains precursors for glutathione production. Glutathione helps defend the body against free radicals that can challenge or weaken the immune system.* Natural protein fractions such as alpha-lactalbumin and immunoglobulins help strengthen the immune system.*
