Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
Why You'll Find this in our Product
Along with carbohydrates and fats, protein is a macronutrient, meaning that the body needs relatively large amounts of it. Protein is beneficial for many reasons including the building and repairing of tissues. We also use protein to make enzymes and hormones.
The Protein You'll Find in Our Products
- Vanguard PRO+ORGAN contains a blend of whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate, but this is not the whey concentrate of yesteryear.
- In addition to having the very cleanest and purest whey isolate, our whey concentrate is tested to have the highest percentage of bioavailability currently attainable in the industry today.
Why We Use Two Types of Protein
All forms of protein contain differing and varying benefits and properties.
Isolates are high on the list of proteins providing greater percentages of bioavailability.
Whey isolates are absorbed very quickly into the bloodstream and goes to work repairing tissue faster than most.
Whey isolates have a lower fat content and there are fewer unwanted side effects, such as discomfort due to poor digestion.
Whey concentrates also have individual benefits and characteristics not contained in other variations including much higher levels of IGF-1, TGF-1, and TGF-2.
Whey concentrates also contain much higher levels of phospholipids, and various bioactive lipids, such as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and often contain higher levels of immunoglobulins and lactoferrin.
