PES Select Protein - Strawberry Cheesecake (878g)
The always awesome Select Protein is our all-time favourite and every once in a while they make an exciting new edition to their incredible range of protein flavours! So here we have it folks! Originally a Limited Edition run....but now, here to STAY....we have the supremely cheesecakey, creamy Strawberry Cheesecake!! We have been waiting a loooong time for PES to offer a fruity flavour and you better believe they've made this one count!
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 - along with a leaner-than-lean low-fat/low-carb profile - to give you a breathtakingly tasty (just look up the reviews on our site and around the web!) multi-source, timed-release shake. PES Strawberry Cheesecake 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!
Never ones to run with the pack, PEScience haven't just launched a lazy, run-of-the-mill strawberry protein with a jazzy name here...no way! Expect true CHEESECAKE flavour, laced with luxurious, sweet strawberry flavour, the first run we had fruity pieces, this time round, we may have lost them but folks...the awesome flavour stays. Sometimes ya just don't need pieces. Siiiiilky smooth, suuuper delicious, again, PES have delivered a dessert of dreams!!
This one blends up a treat (as with all PES protein), you know what else...it adds SUPER awesome flavour and texture to tasty high protein bakes because of the awesome flavour!! Strawberry Cheesecake 'proats' (protein+oats) became a regular thing here in the Mix!!
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!
