Platinum Hydrowhey® is the most advanced whey protein we've ever developed. In a word: Excellence. By hydrolyzing whey protein isolates to break larger proteins down into smaller pieces, these ultra-pure whey isolates are able to get into your system rapidly, enabling your muscles to start recovering from heavy training. We've dialed up this ultra pure and rapidly-digesting formula with added micronized Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). What is Hydrolysis? Hydrolysis simply put is a process which breaks down larger proteins into smaller ones. This has dual benefits in that it makes the whey protein easier to digest (many who get flatulence or bloating from dairy do fine with whey hydrolysate) and absorb faster into the bloodstream so that it reaches your muscles more quickly. Why are Hydrolyzed Whey Proteins Consider Superior? As a lactose free whey protein, Platinum Hydrowhey has no excess fat, or carbohydrate, and is further fortified with BCAAs for greater effect. That means that the protein in Platinum Hydrowhey is absorbed even faster than whey protein isolate and is even lower in fat and sugar. Being lactose free makes Platinum Hydrowhey a great choice for those who believe themselves to be intolerant to dairy. BCAA's Accelerate Anabolic Processes Platinum Hydrowhey is as premium a protein as you can get you might think but Optimum Nutrition have added additional branched chain amino acids to Platinum Hydrowhey. BCAA's play a critical role in activating something called mTOR, a key regulator of protein synthesis in the body. The inclusion of additional BCAA's in Platinum Hydrowhey thereby ensures that all doors to muscle growth are open with a dose of 9g of BCAA's per serving of Platinum Hydrowhey being more than enough to optimise muscle protein synthesis. In sum, Platinum Hydrowhey is a whey protein which is designed for those who are looking for the best, and fastest muscle building protein around.
