When building lean muscle, 100% Whey is INFERIOR
If you’re a regular 100% whey protein user, read on, because there’s something you need to know. In our quest to build muscle, protein intake is the single most important factor. When we say intake, we mean the type of protein too.
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.
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 soy-based protein, sugary drinks, and even just water. Of course whey is going to come out on top when half the time it isnt even being compared to other protein!
Nature had it right. When researchers at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic tested a combination of whey + casein protein, as found naturally in milk protein, they discovered that the two protein sources work together to build lean muscle.
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 another published study, researchers found the combination of whey protein with casein protein resulted in a quick increase in protein synthesis along with a sustained elevation in plasma leucine levels. Plasma leucine levels are a key dictator of muscle protein synthesis, and thus, a combination of whey protein and casein protein may serve to maximize muscle protein accumulation.
Whey protein hits the bloodstream at a fast rate, but it is casein protein that has been shown to create the strongest leucine balance. It only makes sense to consume them together.
Studies have repeatedly shown that milk may be the optimal post workout drink due to the unique delivery and interplay of milk protein's components: whey protein and casein protein, together.
In fact, the research shows that even if amino acid content of a protein is held constant, milk protein augments lean muscle accrual to a greater degree than fast-digesting hydrolyzed proteins due to the unique pattern of amino acid delivery that only milk protein can provide. Nature had it right all along: milk protein is king. Did we mention that Milk Protein Isolate is the first ingredient in our SELECT Protein?
We already know that whey protein spikes muscle protein synthesis while casein protein creates an anti-catabolic trickle of amino acids, a complementary combination that should be taken at the same time. But in addition to this, whey protein and casein protein each have their own unique bioactive subfractions and growth factors which work in concert when they're taken together.
The 2005 International Whey Conference concluded that a mixture of whey + casein is the optimal form of protein for gaining muscle mass. That's right, even at a whey conference, the researchers found that 100% whey is not the answer!
So if a synergistic whey-casein protein blend is the optimal blend for building muscle, what do you think SELECT Protein brings you? That's right: A whey-casein blend!
Select Protein Vegan Series
Top Quality Ingredients | No Artificial Sweeteners or Flavors | The New Standard in Vegan Protein Flavor
We chose protein sources that have been clinically tested in humans for their effects on muscle building. And we stay away from weak estrogenic proteins like soy.
Let’s be honest...the vast majority of vegan proteins taste terrible. To make a vegan protein taste great you need two things: Top quality ingredients, and a special flavoring craft that PEScience possesses.
We started with the top quality source of every ingredient in the mix, making Select Vegan likely the most expensive protein on the market to produce. But that is what we do for our customers.
We then take our flavoring craft and spend months, literally, creating the absolute best flavoring possible. Each Select Vegan is sweetened only with stevia.
Select Protein Cafe Series
Select Cafe is naturally caffeinated and the perfect replacement to high calorie, sugar loaded coffee beverages! Ditch your Coffee with 3 Ways to Enjoy your Protein!
Mix 1 scoop of Select Café Protein with 6-8 oz of cold water, milk, or milk-substitute. Shake in a shaker cup or stir with a spoon. Pour mixed drink into a cup of ice and enjoy!
Blend it! - Frappé Style
Add 1 scoop of Select Café Protein to a blender with 4 oz of cold water, milk, or milk-substitute, and 1 cup of ice cubes. Blend until desired consistency is reached.
Prepare 6-8 oz hot water at your desired temperature (Do not use boiling water, as this will cause the product to clump, best results are when water is 185-190°F). Add approximately 1/2 scoop of the Select Cafe Protein to the water and mix with a spoon. Once mixed, add the remaining powder and mix again.
PEScience Select Protein4Oats
Regular protein is formulated and flavored to be drank as a protein shake. Protein4Oats has been specially formulated and flavored for oatmeal. It will blow away any regular protein in your oatmeal on both taste and texture.
Select Protein is renowned for being an incredible tasting protein powder as a shake, in recipes, and is commonly added to oatmeal. However we believed we could make a dedicated oatmeal flavoring system that could blow it away. We agreed that unless we could make a flavor that is miles better than anything else we wouldn't even release this product. We can say with confidence that nothing comes close to Protein4Oats in oatmeal.
