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, 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:

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

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought the Chocolate Whey protein to help in my recovery from my workouts. I love putting a scoop in my homemade pancake mix after hard brick sessions. It's also fantastic to take right before going to bed with water.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boost Recovery Overnight One of the best advantages that Hammer Whey provides is the natural recovery boost you receive from taking a scoop of Hammer Whey in water prior to sleeping. I can wake up the next day feeling recovered from the previous hard day of training or racing. It also has glutamine which restores my immune system. It mixes so well in water with just a spoon.
Date published: 2014-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ThePumping Iron! The Whey Protein is basically why I do weights!:) As an endurance runner I basically do not do any lifting but even when doing alternative strengthening or plyometrics I always make sure to take Whey to recover my muscles. I also take whey as a second dinner after hard training days. Taste super yummy lacking any artificial additives which similar products of other brands usually do.

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.
Date published: 2014-06-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Without Added Junk I've been using Hammer Whey for almost a decade now because, unlike most other whey powders, it only has the bare minimum of ingredients, which is what I want. I don't want a list of forty ingredients with dozens of fake flavors, preservatives, and artificial colors. And, from everything I've read, isolate is much more rapidly absorbed than concentrate. If I'm doing multiple hard workouts per day, I need the fastest and most complete recovery possible to keep from getting sick and run down by the end of the week.
Date published: 2016-05-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product except This is a good product that I have been using daily for years. My one complaint and the reason I rated the product three stars versus five is that it does not completely dissolve. Even after shaking for over a minute there are these gross chunks of slime. Really annoying and gag inducing.
Date published: 2014-11-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Protein! Hammer Whey powder is free of ingredients that you need to be a food scientist to understand and tastes great. I use vanilla whey powder mixed with vanilla almond milk as a high protein "snack" to avoid diving into unhealthy snacks and mix it into smoothies for breakfast.
Date published: 2016-09-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great post workout I read about the benefits of using a post work out supplement, like all hammer nutrition products I like that there are no additional fillers and added sugars. I have been using this product and it has helped me train day after day, with less soreness and more energy.
Date published: 2016-08-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super product. If you want to gain lean muscle or become a stronger athlete, hammer whey is the way to go. If taken right before bed after a two hour fast, you'll definitely start to see increases in strength and a decrease in body fat %.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for soreness! This stuff is great! I'm and 18 year old guy who works out almost every day and I was just drink plain chocolate milk after I worked out. I never had the energy to go as hard as I could in my workouts and was always really sore afterwards and wanted a solution. So I bought the Hammer Race Caps, which I take before my workout and the Strawberry Hammer Whey Protein, which I take afterwards. It was incredible how much it helped, I have plenty of energy now and I had virtually no soreness! I can't guarantee this will happen for everyone but it certainly worked for me, I would definitely recommend these two products together. If you like strawberry, then that flavor is definitely for you, it tastes great for a protein drink and I just drink it with plain water. I would rate the strawberry flavor 9/10.
Date published: 2016-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and easy way to get extra protein I bought 4 of these a while ago to supplement my protein intake. As a vegetarian and being 5 months pregnant, I have found it difficult to get adequate protein (I am not a health professional and I received on ok from my midwife). This product has made it easy for me to get in my suggested protein requirements: I bring some to the office with me and mix with my water; in the evenings or after my morning run I blend it into a smoothie. Also, it is always a pleasure to order from HAMMER.
Date published: 2016-02-02
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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent protein! I've been using Hammer Whey for over a year. It's by far one of the purist and best tasting. I love that you can just shake with water and be done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MRP I use my whay as a meal replacement. Good taste, mixes well . One regret, needs to be sold in lager servings tub to get cost down !
Date published: 2016-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whey This product is great. It mixes well with almond mix. Hammer needs to make the Whey in a 32 serving size...please

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT product I buy this Hammer Whey for myself and my family and we use it daily. Thanks HAMMER NUTRITION

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes great and mixes easily One of the top prteins on the market for whey protein isolate. Highest quality available.

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 1 out of 5 by from Chai flavor is unpalatable Don't recommend the chai flavor based on taste - try other flavors first
Date published: 2014-08-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for after workouts. I would not use anything else.
Date published: 2014-03-13
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 Excellent source of protein I have been taking Hammer Whey daily for about 15 years in the evenings when I get in from my work on our ranch. I have also been taking Hammer Soy every morning . Together I get 50 grams of protein of the 140 grams I need everyday to maintain my 68 year old muscle mass. They are good and help my recovery time. I also take 8 other Hammer products every day. They really help me maintain the quality of life that I enjoy !
Date published: 2015-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recovery ahead! I have now used the Whey for a few weeks and it has been helping me to notice less recovery time. I take it right before bed on hefty workout days, and when I wake up I feel good. I am sold on the product, as there aren't any fillers and it is grass fed product. I know there are many products on the market, but if you look at many of them the ingredient list is so long, I appreciate Hammer for keeping this simple.
Date published: 2016-03-02
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!
Date published: 2014-02-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Extra Junk, Low carb and Low iron I having been using Hammer Whey for several years and love it. The main reason is what inside and what’s NOT. No simple sugars, stimulants, artificial flavors or colors. Just great tasting Whey. Unless I’m running long miles (15+) I usually follow a low carb diet and Hammer Nutrition Whey is very low carb. My husband is on a low iron diet and Hammer Nutrition Whey fits right into his diet.
Date published: 2014-01-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST WHEY on the market Tried other Whey products & NOTHING compares to this product. This is the ONLY whey product we have used for over 6 years based on quality ingredients & consistency of the product. An added benefit is the superb customer service that many companies have forgotten. Worth every penny! Don't cheat on your nutrition--remember you are fueling your body!!
Date published: 2016-05-26
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.
Date published: 2015-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I should have been using this product at the start of my triathlon season, it really helps boost my immune system and get some extra calories and protein in the system which I need to support my training. If I take it after training in the morning it helps fight that constant hunger I have all day, and taking it before bed helps me sleep better.
