INCREDIBLE WHEY: THE BEST ‘WHEY’ OUT FOR MUSCLE RECOVERY

INCREDIBLE WHEY: THE BEST ‘WHEY’ OUT FOR MUSCLE RECOVERY

Steadfast Incredible Whey is a blend of whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate. It supports muscle recovery after strenuous workouts in strength and endurance athletes. This formulation has the added benefits of essential vitamins, minerals, and the digestive enzyme protease. It also contains special ingredients like taurine, inositol, and alpha-lipoic acid, along with a good amino acid profile. The essential vitamins and minerals present in Incredible Whey help maintain electrolyte balance and increase the overall immunity. It is available in many flavours like chocolate, mango, strawberry, vanilla, and coffee. 

Ingredients of Incredible whey and their role:

1. Protein blend (whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate): Whey protein is extracted from whey, the watery part of milk that gets separated from the curds while making cheese. Whey protein is a popular protein supplement due to its fast-releasing properties. Whey promotes muscle mass and adds healthy calories to the diet. It is an effective way to compensate for muscle breakdown during workout sessions. The isolate form of whey contains about 90 percent of protein per scoop and a negligible amount of fat and carbohydrates. Whereas, whey protein concentrate generally has 60-80% percent of protein (which varies from brand to brand). Fats and carbohydrates make up for the remaining percentage.

2. Thickener (INS 412): INS 412 is a natural food additive and is also known as Guar Gum. It is widely used as a thickener, stabiliser, emulsifier, or as a drying/firming agent, or flavour enhancer in food products and dietary supplements. 

3. Emulsifier {INS 322 (i)}:  Antioxidant INS 322 or Lecithin is used as an emulsifier, antioxidant and flavour protector in dietary supplements. It helps to increase immunity in diabetic people and reduces digestive distress by improving digestion.

4. Alpha-lipoic acid: Alpha-lipoic acid is a naturally-occurring compound in our body that helps convert blood glucose into energy by using oxygen. Alpha-lipoic acid also acts as a powerful antioxidant which can neutralize harmful free radicals. It may improve certain metabolic functions, help in burning fat, producing collagen, and controlling blood glucose levels.

5. Inositol: Inositol is a sugar naturally produced in body. However, we can also get it from foods like grains, nuts, citrus fruits, corn, sesame seeds, and others. Inositol can help treat polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) by improving insulin sensitivity and ovarian function. It may also reduce the chances of depression and metabolic diseases in women with PCOS. 

6. Taurine: Taurine helps increase physical stamina and improves athletic performance. It also promotes good mental health and helps with anxiety and insomnia. Taurine supplements are also used to relieve cramps, muscle soreness, and fatigue.

7. dl-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate: Alpha-Tocopheryl acetate is a specific type of vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant. It helps treat vitamin E deficiency, promotes  healthy skin, helps with wound healing, lowers inflammation, and improves cognitive function.

8. Pyridoxine Hydrochloride: Pyridoxine Hydrochloride or vitamin B6, is needed by the body for utilization of energy, production of red blood cells, proper nerve functioning and, prevention of vitamin B6 deficiency. 

9. N-pteroyl-l-glutamic acid: n-pteroyl-l-glutamic acid is a folate derivative found in foods like yeast, spinach, beef, liver, and peas. Glutamic acid is an amino acid used by the body to synthesize proteins and is the most common stimulating neurotransmitter in the nervous system. 

10. Cyanocobalamin: Cyanocobalamin or vitamin B12 helps produce red blood cells and nerve cells. It also supports the synthesis of amino acids and converts carbohydrates into energy. Vitamin B12 delays muscle fatigue and tiredness, thereby enhancing strength and endurance.

11. Sweeteners (INS 950, INS 955, and INS 960): INS 950 is acesulfame potassium, INS 955 is sucralose, and INS 960 is stevia. Artificial sweeteners are derived from naturally-occurring substances like herbs or sugar itself. They are also called intense sweeteners as they are much sweeter than the commonly used table sugar. Hence, they are required in much smaller amounts than sugar.

12. Protease enzyme: Protease enzymes are a group of proteolytic enzymes that break down protein. Protease plays a significant role in the metabolisation and absorption of dietary proteins. Other  biological processes regulated by proteases include blood coagulation, immune function, bone formation, among others. 

13. Cocoa powder: Cocoa powder contains phenethylamine that works best to enhance mood and works as an antidepressant. It also possesses the properties of antioxidant and flavonoid that helps improve heart health. 

*Available in chocolate flavour only

14. Natural colour (INS 150d, present in chocolate flavour): INS 150d or caramel colour is used in aerated beverages, dressings, chocolate syrups, confectionery items, jams, jellies, marmalades, bread, alcoholic drinks, coffee, baked goods, preserved vegetables, processed meats, soups, and others. 

15. Curcumin Powder: Curcumin is widely known for its medicinal properties. It is an effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent that helps relieve inflammation and fights free radicals. It is a strong immunity booster that minimises the risk of developing medical ailments, infections, and metabolic disorders. 

*Available in mango flavour only

16. Strawberry Powder: Strawberries are a great source of antioxidants that may help reduce cholesterol levels and lower the risk of heart diseases. Strawberry powder is rich in nutrients like calcium, vitamin K, potassium, and manganese.

17. Colour (INS 162, present in strawberry flavour): INS 162 or beetroot red can be used to colour food products such as candies, flavoured yogurt, ice creams, and other frozen desserts, salad dressings, ready-made frostings, cake mixes, flavoured protein supplements, gravy mixes, biscuit filling, marshmallows, aerated drinks, and various other items.

18. Coffee powder: Adding coffee powder to protein supplements can enhance workout performance. Coffee is rich in caffeine which acts as a natural stimulant to improve muscle functioning. It also delays fatigue and makes one more alert during the workout session.  

19. Vanilla flavour: Vanilla is popular in the food industry for enhancing the flavour of dairy products, beverages, baked foods, confectionary items and others. Vanilla in protein supplements is very popular and is largely accepted by people.
