Whey protein can have a large number of benefits. It is the most commonly used protein for a reason. It is a very high quality source of essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of almost all muscle reparation or biosynthesis. While you may already know about its enhancement of your physical performance capabilities and the way in which it reduces recovery times, you may not know about some of its lesser discussed benefits. Some studies indicate that Whey may help you with everything from HIV, to stress, to improving your blood pressure to AIDS. The Whey protein contained in these bars also helps to boost the immune system, reduces Cortisol levels and raises the brain’s Serotonin levels. In combination, these effects will have you feeling healthy, energetic and happy. Finally, Whey protein is said to help those with hepatitis by improving and increasing the effectivity of liver function.
Whey protein comes from cow’s milk and is a bi-product of cheese. One fifth of the protein in cow’s milk is whey. Whey protein is probably the most abundant type of protein found in the commercial market. It is probably so widely available because of its BV (biological value), which is essentially a way of measuring the volume of beneficial ingredients contained. Whey protein isolate for example is said to contain on average at least 90% pure protein. Whey protein can come in a number of forms, Whey Concentrate, Isolate or Hydrolysate – these bars contain both Concentrate and Isolate, meaning that you get a massive amount of protein for the amount that you are spending. PHD Nutrition’s bars also contain milk protein isolate, which is another rich source of protein.
While in general it is perfectly fine to eat one of these bars at any time of day, as a snack or as a workout-related boost, there are certain times that they may be slightly more effective. If you eat for example one bar first thing in the morning and one within half an hour after your workout, you will feel that your muscles are fuelled and energised for a large portion of the day.
Bars require no preparation so are ideal for those that live an extremely busy lifestyle, or for those that need an instant boost on the move. Bars are perfect for those that work, who don’t want to carry a shake around in their bag, or for athletes that want an energy and protein source that can fit in their pocket.
According to the Food and Drug administration, Whey Protein Isolate contains at least 90 percent protein, whereas Whey Protein Concentrate is composed of only 80 percent protein. Whey Protein Isolate also has lower lactose, sugar and fat counts, yet it is slightly more expensive.
These bars contain only one gram of sugar per bar.
In general it is suggested that you should have no more than two of these bars per day.
While these bars are perfectly fine when taken responsibly, within the recommended guidelines, some of the following problems may occur. You may experience increased bowel activity, nausea, thirst, bloating, reduced appetite, fatigue or headaches. While this list may seem terrifying at first, it is worth noting that these symptoms are extremely rare even in those that do eat these bars over the recommended limit.
These diet whey bars contain a number of other ingredients that are great for your health and athletic performance. They contain CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), L-Carnitine (a nutrient derived from amino acids), Flaxseed (a great source of omega-3 fatty acids) and Green Tea Extract (a natural source of anti-oxidants). These ingredients combine in order to supply with you all of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that you may need to stay healthy and workout to your limit and further.
These bars contain milk protein isolate. Milk protein isolate is suitable for some that are lactose intolerant as most of the lactose is removed.
