Staunch Whey Isolate
- Quality Bioavailable Protein
- Rich source of EAAs and BCAAs
- Low Carb
- Zero Fat
Staunch Whey Isolate is a high quality protein powder containing 24 grams of protein per scoop with an added digestive enzyme blend. The protein-specific digestive enzymes in this formulation are protease, bromelains and papain, which further enhance the bioavailability of this already high quality protein powder.
Lipase 8, a fat-specific digestive enzyme has been added, as well as lactase to assist with digestion of lactose, which is only present in very small amounts. This creates a product that is very easy on the digestive system.
As you may already know, good nutrition is not not simply about what you eat, but also about what you can digest and absorb. That’s why products with added digestive enzymes are head-and-shoulders above the rest.
The whey protein isolate used in Staunch Whey Isolate contains all of the essential amino acids-three of which are branched chain amino acids-that we need for the biological process called muscle protein synthesis1,2. Given that whey isolates are naturally high in leucine, this creates the perfect recipe for muscle growth and recovery.
Leucine has been demonstrated to be an important stimulator of mTOR, which is the trigger for muscle growth3. Once this signal is triggered, the muscle needs all of the other essential amino acids (except for tryptophan) to lay down new muscle protein. This, in essence, is the process of muscle growth in response to exercise. And because we are pounding iron in the gym like Schwarzenneger in his prime, we are damaging small muscle fibres that will then be rebuilt bigger and stronger, so to try to avoid further damage in the future. This is how we get big.
Whey protein isolates are one of the most rapidly absorbed forms of protein, helping to get blood levels up fast, which then delivers it to your muscle tissue. Staunch Whey Isolate contains no inferior protein sources other than Whey Protein Isolate. Ingestion of whey protein isolate rapidly leads to anabolic signals in the body, so that healing may begin. It is of course important to shift the body’s chemistry out of a catabolic situation, which occurs during exercise, to an anabolic one with the consumption of a high quality protein, like whey protein.
Staunch Whey Isolate is an exceptionally nutritionally balanced product, enriched with a supportive digestive enzyme complex. Take it post-workout, between meals, or with low protein meals to ensure that you are getting the anabolic boost that you deserve.

What is a Whey Protein Isolate?
Whey protein isolate is the purest form of protein derived from milk. It contains less lactose and fat than whey protein concentrate, and is more rapidly absorbed.
Directions for Use
Mix 1 scoop into cold water, shake or mix and consume. May be added to smoothies, yoghurt or cereals.
