These are the FAQ's and Science behind our most popular recovery formulation
Mix 1 serving (1 scoop) of ISOWhey Max into 6-8 ounces of water, milk, or other beverage of choice.
ISOWhey Max can be taken anytime of day. It’s ideally suited to be used in a pre-workout or post-workout protein shake. ISOWhey Max also makes an excellent addition to breakfast as it mixes effortlessly into smoothies, oatmeal, or pancake batter. It can even be used as a late-night snack before going to bed.
ISOWhey Max can be used with any/all of the Performax Labs supplements. For those looking to gain mass, we suggest stacking ISOWhey Max with MassMax and HyperMax. For those seeking weight loss support, we suggest stacking ISOWhey Max with OxyMax and SlinMax.
No, taking ISOWhey Max before fasted cardio does not inhibit fat loss. Remember, weight loss is driven by burning more calories than you consume each day. It’s not affected by whether or not you perform fasted cardio. Consuming adequate protein is essential to retaining lean mass while dieting.
In this section we will cover each and every ingredient
ISOWhey Max contains 26.5g of cross flow micro- and ultra-filtered whey protein isolate which yields 24 grams of high-quality protein per scoop.
Whey protein isolate is an incredibly pure, highly bioavailable form of protein rich in all the essential amino acids (leucine, in particular) used by the body to support muscle growth and recovery.
Whey protein isolate is also very low in carbohydrates and lactose, making it a superior choice for individuals who experience GI distress when ingesting concentrate.
A 2014 systematic review by Pasiakos and colleagues found that protein supplementation promotes greater lean mass and strength in both trained and untrained individuals as the duration and frequency of resistance training increased.
Supplementing with whey protein isolate has also been shown to attenuate reductions in strength following eccentrically-induced muscle damage in healthy individuals.
Whey supplementation may also benefit those seeking to lose fat as research indicates that whey protein appears to be more satiating than carbohydrate supplementation or other types of protein, including casein and soy.[3,4]
Velositol is a patented complex of:
1000 mcg patented, modified-release, trivalent chromium, and1800 mg specialized, highly soluble, non-GMO amylopectin
Chromium is an essential trace mineral known to enhance the action of insulin, a hormone vital to the metabolism and storage of carbohydrates.
Amylopectin is a highly branched polymer of glucose found in plants and serves as one of the components used to form starch, with amylose being the other component.
Research by Ziegenfuss and colleagues (2017) found that the combination of whey protein + 2g Velositol doubled the muscle protein synthetic (MPS) response in healthy individuals versus consuming just whey protein alone.
DigestivMax contains two proteolytic digestive enzymes in papain and protease.
Papain is an enzyme extracted from the raw fruit of the papaya plant which helps break proteins down into peptides and amino acids.
Protease are naturally occurring proteolytic enzymes in the body that help break down protein into amino acids, so that they can be used for energy, protein recycling, cell division, and immune support.
ISOWhey Max includes papain and protease to enhance the absorption of amino acids as well as help reduce indigestion symptoms like loss of appetite, bloating, and abdominal discomfort.
