Muscle Whey COMPLEX is a whey protein concentrate food supplement, suitable for athletes performing intense physical activity. Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Whey protein naturally contains branched chain amino acids (BCAA). Yamamoto Nutrition Muscle Whey COMPLEX is a supplement based on Volactive Ultra Whey 80 WPC80 quality whey protein concentrate. The first-generation whey protein powders contained 30-40% protein and high amounts of lactose, undenatured proteins and fats. Modern concentrates now contain up to 70-80% protein, with reduced amounts of lactose and fats. Many people have the impression that a WPC is inherently inferior to an isolate. This is simply UNTRUE. Although WPCs contain less protein than an isolate, a high-quality WPC contains all kinds of useful compounds that are not found in isolates. Good concentrates contain much higher levels of growth factors, such as IGF-1, TGF-1 and TGF-2. They contain much higher levels of various phospholipids and various bioactive lipids, such as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and often contain higher levels of immunoglobulins and lactoferrin. The disadvantages of WPCs are that they have a slightly lower protein content than an isolate, and contain higher levels of fats (although these fats can have beneficial effects) and higher levels of lactose. People should not feel that a well-made WPC is inherently inferior to a whey protein isolate (WPI), and it may in fact be a superior choice, depending on the person’s goals. For example, some people do not tolerate lactose well, or are watching the amount of fat consumed in their diet, while others may want the potentially beneficial effects of the additional compounds found in a high-quality concentrate.
