Whey Protein Isolate
Whey protein isolate is an extra-refined form of whey, with protein content of over 90%.
It is rapidly absorbed, and greatly increases muscle growth and repair rates (1).
Its purity and quick absorption make it ideal for post-workout consumption, as well as general supplementation throughout the day.
Glutamine is an amino acid that is widely accepted to increase muscle growth and recovery.
Research agrees with this, but shows that it is unnecessary if taken along with protein or branched-chain amino acids (2).
Who Takes It?
Athletes wanting a near-pure source of protein for everyday consumption will benefit from using 100% Whey Isolate.
How to Take
Mix 1 scoop (25g) with 250mL water or milk, and consume as needed.
Excess protein consumption may worsen an existing liver or kidney condition.
- Super-basic formula gives you exactly what you expect

With Scitec’s 100% Whey Isolate, you get exactly what you expect: a simple, all-isolate formula, with almost no extra calories from carbohydrates or fat.
This makes it perfect for those aiming to bump-up their protein intake, while avoiding the calories and the cost of extra filler ingredients.
Although glutamine may be useful on its own, it’s not entirely necessary nor beneficial in this formula.
