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, artificial sweeteners, 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.

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 4 out of 5 by from Whey Chocolate Protein It is a great protein supplement product not only for what is in it, but as you often say, "what it doesn't contain". Most other protein supplements on the market are full of artificial additives. The only improvement that I can think of is that it could be more "chocolatey, me being a chocolate lover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle flavor, tastes great, dissolves thoroughly I use the vanilla whey and love it. At the end of a major effort, I'll add a scoop into my vanilla Recoverite. Its not too sweet and just tastes great! Also Two scoops of Recoverite and one scoop of Whey will dissolve in less than half a small water bottle of water - shake it with few if any clumps. If you're looking for whey that dissolves well, tastes good, isn't too sweet or full of artificial things, you can't go wrong here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, Whey! I try to keep Hammer Whey Protein fully stocked at home at all times...it's when I don't have it that I appreciate its benefits the most. A few times I've been forced to buy protein at my local pharmacy and it really isn't the same! Great in a shake or just sprinkled on oatmeal - YUM!
Date published: 2015-01-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes great and blends well Whether I mix it with water or blend it in a fruit smoothie, it never thickens the mixture too much so I can drink it quickly. The vanilla flavor suits me best, but the chocolate is also pretty good. I've tried others but they're always too sweet or makes my smoothie too thick. However, I always have a hard time finding the scoop inside the carton.
