Frequently Asked Questions about SHIFTED Whey Protein Isolate
Here are some questions we get asked a lot about SHIFTED Whey Protein Isolate!
What makes Whey Protein Isolate different from other forms of Whey Protein?
The easiest way to explain why Isolate is a superior form of Whey Protein is simple: it has the fewest calories per gram of protein of any mainstream protein option. Isolate minimizes the number of carbs and fat that come with a serving of protein.
Because of this, WPI is especially ideal for those looking to lose weight or cut body fat.
How much SHIFTED Whey Protein Isolate can I consume per day?
We highly recommend that you get some of your protein from real food. Having said that, there really isn't a limit to how much whey protein isolate you can consume in a given day.
A typical customer uses one scoop (25g) per day but serious bodybuilders consume up to 4 scoops (100g) per day.
Can you lose weight with SHIFTED WPI?
To lose weight you need to be in a calorie deficit. Whey Protein Isolate can be helpful in maintaining a calorie deficit because protein helps satiate and keep your body satisfied. It also helps to preserve muscle mass during weight loss.
What is the purpose of Whey Protein Isolate?
All human beings need protein in their diet. Many people do not get enough. And the more muscle mass you have, the more protein you need to maintain your muscle mass.
Another role of Whey Protein Isolate is recovery. WPI helps with repairing and rebuilding muscle. To repair and reubild, your body needs the basic building blocks (Amino Acids) which are contained within Whey Protein Isolate.
What does it mean when you say there are 12g of Essential Amino Acids?
Whey Protein Isolate is a complete protein and therefore contains all of the essential amino acids (EAAs) needed for muscle synthesis.
The EAAs contain the BCAAs. So the 12g of EAAs in in SHIFTED's WPI contain the 5.5g of BCAAs.
Do you add EAAs or BCAAs to your Whey Protein Isolate?
No, Whey Protein Isolate naturally contains both essential amino acids (EAAs) and branched chain amino acids BCAAs and it is an excellent source of both.
Is Shifted Whey Protein Isolate Vegan friendly?
Unfortunately, no. Whey Protein Isolate comes from milk which comes from cows.
Is Shifted WPI Keto Friendly?
On a strict definition of Keto, no. However, for many on the Keto diet, dairy is not a problem and fits within the overall philosophy of eating natural, protein rich foods.
Is Shifted Whey Protein Isolate Gluten Free?
Yes, we are 100% gluten free!
Is Shifted WPI Sugar Free?
While we do not add sugars, there is a trace amount of natural sugar due to the fact that this is a dairy product and dairy contains sugars.
When it comes to muscle recovery what is the difference between SHIFTED WPI and SHIFTED Recovery?
SHIFTED WPI is 100% Whey Protein Isolate and therefore has to be digested before the amino acids are available to start muscle building and repair.
SHIFTED Recovery has 10g of free form Essential Amino Acids which are immediately available for rapid recovery. They are more quickly available than pure whey protein.
We recommend taking SHIFTED Recovery immediately your workout and then SHIFTED WPI 30-60 minutes later to sustain recovery.
