PES Select Protein - Snickerdoodle (864g) **Best Before 31/08/16**
Do you "Just Whey"? Select Protein from Physique Enhancing Sciences is a new, mixed-blend (80/20 Casein/Whey) protein powder, bringing together the finest, ultra-pure Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC-80) and Milk Protein Isolate - along with a leaner-than-lean low-fat/low-carb profile - to give you a breathtakingly tasty (just look up the reviews on the net!) multi-source, timed-release shake. PES Snickerdoodle Select Protein is a researched-backed synergistic whey-casein protein blend, formulated for unrivalled musclar growth and support...and, thanks to the casein, it bakes up a treat too!
What's 'Snickerdoodle' when it's at home?!
Not so familiar to us over here in Europe (yet) but 'Snickerdoodle' is basically a cinnamon & brown sugar cookie! A little bit sweet, a little bit cinnamon and a little bit vanilla...all with a super-satisfying biscuit-overtone!
When building lean muscle, 100% Whey is not enough!
In the quest to build muscle, protein intake is the single most important factor BUT, when we say intake, we mean the type, not just the quantity.
The media tells me that whey builds muscle. And you know what? They're totally right. Studies do show that whey alone builds muscle better than other proteins. But if you look what they compare it to, the issue is clear: studies compare whey to weak products like vegetable-based protein, sugary drinks, and even just water. Of course whey is going to come out on top!
Reputable journals have already tested the effects of different proteins in human subjects, and the data could not be more conclusive. Whey + Casein is the superior choice.
In fact, it turns out that nature had it right...the blend of whey and casein, as found naturally in milk protein, works together in a synergistic manner to build lean muscle more effectively than one or the other alone.
100% whey protein in isolation only gets you so far... it can spike protein synthesis with an influx of amino acids, but quickly returns to baseline, leaving you where you started. Enter casein, a slower-digesting protein that's typically consumed for its anti-catabolic properties as it promotes a steady release of amino acids over time. Casein actually results in more retention of ingested protein than whey!
In a nutshell, whey hits fast...but casein fuels more and longer; whey protein spikes muscle protein synthesis while casein protein creates an anti-catabolic trickle of amino acids. One or the other is good...both together? SO much better!
LEUCINE PEPTIDES are the 'cherry on top'
PES's R&D team knew that the Milk Protein was not the end of the story here. Leucine - widely considered the single most important amino acid for building muscle - has been shown to improve lean muscle gain, exercise and performance, especially when used alongside a quality protein powder.
Basically, without ready access to leucine, there's only a limited amount of protein the body (and your crucial lean muscle mass!) can absorb and put to good use...well, to be the best, PES added PepForm™ Leucine Peptides. Viola...the holy grail of protein powders!

Another 'timed-release' type powder here? 'fraid so! Why another one when we carry great ones like Body Nutrition Trutein?
Well, for one, we're genuine believers in the merit of these multi-source powders - for us, the science stacks up! - but, most crucially (hey...we LIKE nice tasting things here! *cough* protein sweet-shop *cough*), they often make MUCH better shakes! Better texture and better taste. AND the casein in the blends is alot more useful in blending, setting and baking than whey alone!
We challenge you to find better tasting shakes than the ones we currently carry...if you can find them? Let us know!! We'll get them in ASAP! :)
These PES Select Protein tubs are imported from our brothers Stateside (like many of our goodies) and we'll grant you they're not the cheapest powders around, but one taste of the Cookies n Cream or the Snickerdoodle? You'll agree it's MORE than worth the slight premium! And you won't beat these for quality!
