Do you "Just Whey"? Gourmet Vanillaflavour Select Protein from Physique Enhancing Sciences is a 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 Gourmet Vanilla Protein is a researched-backed synergistic whey-casein protein blend, formulated for unrivalled muscular growth and support...and, thanks to the casein, it bakes up a treat too!
Okay...we know its 'Vanilla' and we've all been there and done that with simple flavours...certainly that's the way we normally look at it...BUT this stuff...they call it 'Gourmet' for a reason!! 100% completely and utterly blown away by this flavour system...like melted super rich creamy ice-cream!! Honestly, we still can't quite believe how EPIC this protein powder tastes!! You better believe it guys...you are going to LOVE it!! Straight up #selectthebest!!
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 us 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!
