What is Elite Protein?
Elite Protein is a high quality Whey Protein powder deriving its protein from an elite combination of Whey Concentrate and Whey Isolate to provide a high protein source which is rich in Branched Chain Amino Acids.
Elite Protein is an easy mixing, great tasting protein powder using only the finest ingredients which lends itself to keeping with EQ’s commitment to Excellence and Quality throughout our complete product range.
Why take Elite Protein?
Elite Protein combines the best protein sources in a convenient, low calorie shake allowing it to fit into most diet plans to increase protein intake around training sessions and in between meals during the day. Whey Protein has been shown to increase protein synthesis at a higher rate compared to other protein sources which is why we do not use cheaper protein sources such as soy or hemp proteins in our products.1
Elite Protein’s sources of protein are rich in Leucine which can assist in protein synthesis (the building of muscle) by activating the mTOR pathway. Consuming additional Leucine increases protein synthesis further2, making Elite Protein a perfect go-to choice for those looking to build muscle and recover faster after exercise
When to take it?
The low calorie, high protein content of Elite Protein allows it to be used in a variety of convenient ways as a protein boost to your daily diet either with or between meals or pre or post exercise to maximise your body’s ability to use protein at the time it needs it the most.
