Product Detail & Benefits

Description:

Maintenance, repair, and growth of lean muscle mass are as important to your training as your energy source. That's why serious endurance athletes also need considerable amounts of protein, far above the normal adult RDA. Low dietary protein lengthens recovery time, causes muscle weakness, and suppresses the immune system. Prolonged protein deficiencies will cancel the beneficial effects of your workouts; instead, you will become susceptible to fatigue, lethargy, anemia, and possibly even more severe disorders. Athletes with over-training syndrome usually have protein deficiency.

Hammer Whey fulfills your post-workout protein requirements, without any added sugars, fillers, sweeteners (artificial or otherwise), or other questionable nutrients

Why Hammer Whey for recovery?

Hammer Whey is the standard for promoting rapid recovery. For rebuilding lean muscle tissue and supporting optimal immune system function between workouts and races, whey protein has no peer. It is the most bioavailable form of protein and has the highest percentage of essential amino acids, the protein building blocks that your body does not manufacture and must obtain from dietary sources. Moreover, 25% of the essential amino acid component comes from the three most important amino acids for muscle tissue repair, the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine, and valine.

Each level scoop of Hammer Whey contains a huge six grams of glutamine, providing even more muscle rebuilding and immune system-enhancing benefits. Hammer Whey is also rich in two other highly beneficial amino acids, methionine and cysteine. These two nutrients stimulate the natural production of glutathione, one of the body's most powerful antioxidants. Endurance exercise increases free-radical production, so endurance athletes need extra antioxidant protection. Glutathione also supports immune system and liver functions.

Short, four-amino acid chains known as quadripeptides constitute another key component of whey protein. Quadripeptides have a pain-killing (analgesic) effect that can help alleviate the soreness after an intense workout or all-out race effort.

Another consideration when supplementing with Whey is that you choose whey protein isolate, not whey protein concentrate. Whey protein isolate is virtually lactose- and fat-free; many lactose-intolerant people can still use whey protein isolate because it contains only a miniscule amount of lactose. Also, whey isolate checks in at a sturdy 90-97% protein, whereas whey concentrate contains only 70-80% protein. Simply put, whey protein isolate is a purer protein and the best protein you can consume after a hard workout, which is why Hammer Whey is comprised of whey protein isolates only.

How well you perform tomorrow depends on how well you recover today. During the recovery process that your body grows stronger and more fit. Exercise breaks down muscle tissue, depletes energy stores, and stresses your immune system. Recovery builds these back up again—if you have adequate nutrient intake and a sensible exercise regime. Athletic improvement occurs during the rest and recovery phase, when your body responds to the stress of training. Smart athletes follow the formula for success: recover as purposely as you train. Hammer Whey is a key component for superior recovery.

Benefits:

Whey is available in the following delicious flavors: Chocolate, Chai, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Unflavored.

Protein supplementation is absolutely essential for any hard-training athlete to maintain, repair, and grow lean muscle mass. Hammer Whey, ideal for supporting your immune system, and enhancing recovery between workouts and races, helps you obtain the full amount of protein you need daily.

Whey is the most easily assimilated of all proteins and is packed with a tremendous amount of naturally occurring branched chain amino acids. Hammer Whey also contains high amounts of other recovery-specific amino acids and is glutamine-fortified for immune system support. Hammer Whey is 100% whey protein isolate, so you get more actual protein per serving and less lactose and fat than obtained through the commonly found concentrate form.

Serious endurance athletes have protein requirements far above the normal adult RDA, so make sure you always have Hammer Whey on hand.

Extra Benefits:
Contains only 100% undenatured (non-heated) whey isolate, which is virtually lactose & fat free but rich in immune-enhancing beta-lactalbumins and alpha-lactalbumins. Gram per gram we believe you won't find a higher quality protein at a better value, especially when you compare the whey protein isolate in Hammer Whey to cheaper whey concentrates, most of which contain only 70-85% actual protein and higher amounts of fat and lactose.

Q: Should I use Whey or Soy?
A: Hammer Nutrition Fuels-what they are and how to use them

Notes:

Note: Studies have established a suggested daily requirement of at least a half-gram of protein per pound of body weight for endurance athletes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty and Potent I add it to the Recoverite with a bit of fresh fruit to make a smoothly. Workout soreness just melts away!
Date published: 2014-07-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whey Good!! I've been using Hammer Whey for a few years now, primarily the vanilla flavored product. While I still love the vanilla, the Chai Whey Protein is a great change and spices up my post-workout recovery. Only 80 calories per serving and 18 grams of protein! Couple that with 8 0z. of non-fat Greek yogurt and we're talking 40 G's of protein, 210 calories. Hammer On!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary Product This product has a good taste, easy on the stomach, and has improved my day to day recovery.
Date published: 2014-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleanest Protein powder on the market I have used Hammer Whey protein powder for years. The highest grade whey and glutamine have been incorporated to make this the cleanest protein powder I have seen. I tell all my friends at the gym who are consuming junk to change to Hammer--not only the protein powder, but all products. I have complete trust in Hammer products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hammer whey no flavor This is only protein I could find that does not have added flavor. I can use it without spoiling taste of real foods I am adding it into.
Date published: 2014-06-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is not my favorite powder at all. The consistency is too thin and the flavor is less than desirable. I will not buy this product again
Date published: 2014-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strawberry Bliss Purchased the Hammer Whey Strawberry flavor a few weeks. Works great and geet me satiated. The best part about it though is the strawberry flavor. Not fake or too sweet. Just the perfect flavor profile that really perks up anything that you put it into.
Date published: 2014-06-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whey unflavored protein powder I make my own protein bars, and this has worked very well. So happy with this purchase!
Date published: 2014-06-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mixes easy Good taste, like that you can mix it as a smoothie or when in a hurry mix it with 6 ounce's of water and chug it down
Date published: 2014-06-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent product. I have ordered straberry, vanilla and chai; have not tasted chai yet. The strawberry flavoring is very weak. I'd be more inclined to call it unflavored. I usually mix with real fruit so this isn't a major concern for me until I'm restricting carbs. The vanilla is fine. I also wish there was less glutamine. I use 3-4 scoops at a time to get enough so the amount of glutamine ends up higher than I'd like.
Date published: 2014-06-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everyday Post-Workout Consumption This appears to help me recover. I am a long-term user and my performance has been very good.
Date published: 2014-05-31

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most excellent! I had Hammer Whey (and Heed and Gel and Recoverite) all during my marathon training this winter into spring. With my race now over, I am still taking one scoop at night as directed (two hours after last food, and 30 minutes before sleep) for that extra HGH boost....which I find also helps me get a really deep and restful sleep.
Date published: 2014-05-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste I drink the Chocolate Whey protein everyday in the morning with just water. It tastes great, and the texture is smooth. I love the high quality ingredients and will continue to use Hammer Nutrition.
Date published: 2014-04-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hammer Whey I like the results I get from the vanilla whey however I wish it had a stronger vanilla taste. I prefer my protein shakes to get thicker when blended.
Date published: 2014-04-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flavor and Nutrition! We have a lot of confidence in Hammer Whey Vanilla Protein Powder. It has great flavor and healthy ingredients. It's filling and tasty in all kinds of smoothies

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for smoothies We love making smoothies with fresh fruits/veggies. The unflavored whey protein is a great addition for a balanced drink.

Date published: 2014-03-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good I have been using this product for years. It does exactly what I want it to do - I use it to add protein to my diet when I perhaps didn't get enough on a particular day.
Date published: 2014-02-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHEY is a WOW The WHEY gives me energy and vitality. I don't have to fuss with fixing food. Instead I make a quick whey drink and get on with the day with a smile

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Protein on the market There is nothing better than one scoop of Chocolate Whey in oatmeal with fruit and honey
Date published: 2014-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste - Love it! I ordered the Vanilla Whey, and it tastes great. I mix it with a smoothie in the mornings, and feel like I have sustained energy all day. I run multiple marathons and ultras a year, and train hard in-between. I knew I needed more protein in my diet, and the Whey protein fills in that gap. I still use Recoverite after longer runs because it has the needed carbs and protein.
Date published: 2014-02-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent HGH Booster! I have been using Hammer Whey as a morning protein supplement and night time HGH booster for several months now. As a protein supplement, there is nothing better. I take one level scoop with water (no carbs) in the morning with breakfast and never feel hungry going into lunch. At night, one more level scoop with water just before going to bed is the perfect night cap. Hammer Whey is helping me reach my goals!
