No other macro-nutrient is more essential to muscle growth and recovery than protein. Research shows that 1.5 to 2 grams of protein per kilogram body weight is needed to promote optimal nitrogen retention and pack on hard, lean muscle. This amount is often difficult to meet through a balanced diet which is why individuals often turn to whey supplementation to support their protein requirements. However, all whey proteins are not created equal. Some will only use fast digesting protein sources, such as whey isolate, while others slow, such as casein. While there is nothing wrong with this it may not rapidly ignite or prolong protein synthesis; cheating you of achieving an optimal anabolic environment. Furthermore, research shows that a blend of whey proteins is superior for building muscle compared to when just one source is found in a protein powder.
This is why Kodiak developed 3Whey™. 3Whey™ contains a whopping 26 grams of total protein from three different forms of whey that digest at different rates to ignite muscle protein synthesis and keep it going for hours. If that wasn’t enough you know exactly how much of each protein you are getting with each serving. Very few of our competitors give you that level of transparency. Take a look at 3Whey’s™ label and you will find:
3 grams Hydrolyzed Whey Peptides – This form of whey is predigested, which results in faster absorption and release of amino acids into the blood stream. This rapidly sparks muscle protein synthesis when consumed after exercise. Absorption begins about 15 minutes after ingestion and is studied to continue for over an hour.
12.5 grams Whey Isolate – WPI is the isolated protein fraction from whey protein concentrate that is 90% pure protein—making it the purest protein source currently available. Absorption begins about 1 hour after ingestion and is studied to continue for up to 1.5 hours
10.5 grams Whey Concentrate – Concentrate contains 80 percent pure protein in addition to a small amount of fat, minerals, and lactose. Because it’s more complete, whey protein concentrate usually has more bioactive components and that add to concentrate’s benefit. Absorption begins about 1 hour after ingestion and is studied to continue for up to 3 hours.
Fibersol – Added for digestive benefits, Fibersol is a digestion-resistant soluble corn fiber that acts as a low-calorie bulking agent which contains 90 percent dietary fiber.
