Most will aim for 1.5 to 3 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight daily depending on the intensity and frequency of their training and space their consumption throughout the day.

Additionally, the macronutrient profile of ISOFLEX is exceptional and provides you with a whopping 27 grams of pure protein!
Will ISOFLEX give me big, bulky muscles?
For those of you trying to lose weight or tone up, drinking protein supplements such as ISOFLEX are not going to give you big, bulky muscles.

But ISOFLEX can provide you with the nutrients your body needs to recover from your workouts and is a great protein option to help fuel your muscles.
When should I take ISOFLEX?
As soon as you’ve dropped your final set your next step should be to consume an ISOFLEX protein shake with some fast-acting carbs (2-3 rice cakes are a quick and easy option). We also recommend stacking with a quality carbohydrate drink like CARBION. This will boost protein synthesis and prevent muscle breakdown. A second option popular with bodybuilders is C:VOL immediately after working out, then 30 minutes later, ISOFLEX protein powder.

Do I have to use a blender to mix up my ISOFLEX protein powder?
Using a blender will increase the creaminess of your shake, but ISOFLEX was developed as an instantized protein powder through an advanced technological process, so that it mixes easily in a shaker cup and doesn’t require a blender. We understand mixability is crucial, many times we are mixing up shakes on the go or at the gym in not so ideal circumstances. Those who have tried ISOFLEX have commented that it mixes well with water or milk in a shaker cup, creating a nice, smooth drink. ISOFLEX mixes so easily, you can even scoop your protein into your shaker cup first and then add water without it clumping and sticking to the bottom! This makes it great for storing a serving in your gym bag for post-workout nutrition.
What is whey protein isolate?
Whey protein is simply one of the by-products in the manufacturing of cheese. Whey protein is considered the pinnacle of all sources of protein, as it is readily absorbed by the body and has a very high biological value. Whey protein isolate is a purer form of whey protein as it contains less fat and lactose. It also has a higher biological value than whey protein concentrates. Whey protein isolate is a far superior source than a whey protein concentrate and allows the highest percentage of protein per gram. Although whey protein isolates generally cost more than concentrate blends, the quality is certainly worth it.
ISOFLEX contains a very special hybrid of Whey Protein Isolates that we call HRI. HRI in ISOFLEX yields a very high percentage of protein. It provides exceptional levels of bioactive whey protein fractions due in part to gentle processing at cold temperatures that ensure the protein is intact and non-denatured.
You can see this from the chart on the label that shows our typical levels of bioactive fractions such as Beta-Lactoglobulin, Alpha-Lactalbumin, Immunoglobin, Lactoferrin, BSA and so on. Each of these fractions are partly responsible for many of the health giving properties attributed to whey protein.
Is whey better than soy?
There is quite a lot of controversy among nutritional experts about this. Although whey protein has a higher biological value than soy protein, a lot of scientific research has proven that soy protein can also offer a variety of health benefits. ISOFLEX protein powder is composed of exclusively whey protein and has a much higher bioavailable value, but there’s no reason why you can’t include soy protein in your balanced diet as well. However, many people shy away from soy due to concerns over estrogenic proteins.
Can I use ISOFLEX if I’m lactose-intolerant?
ISOFLEX is lactose-free and is well-tolerated by those who have a lactose intolerance.
I eat beef, chicken and eggs, do I still need to use ISOFLEX?
Unlike animal sources of protein, ISOFLEX travels well in a gym bag or suitcase for a quick protein boost whenever you need one. ISOFLEX is simply a convenient high protein, low fat, addition to your diet plan. For those of you who are bodybuilding and are trying to consume between 1.5 and 3 grams of protein per pound of body weight, you know all too well how difficult and expensive this kind of diet can be. Aside from providing a simple way to quickly and easily get your protein, ISOFLEX also absorbs rapidly and contains 4 proprietary complexes to augment absorption, improve recovery, and increase nutrient delivery.
