Pharma Whey HT+ was the very first product off the PhD pipeline when the brand was launched in March 2006. Since this day it has gone on to become one of Europe’s favourite whey protein products, with an award winning taste and performance driven formula. Brand new and improved Pharma Whey HT+ has recently been updated to include whey protein from only grass fed cows and we have removed hydrolysed wheat protein (thereby removing the gluten from the product) and have replaced soya lecithin as the emulsifier, with sunflower lecithin to remove allergens from the product yet still retained the great texture and mouth feel that Pharma Whey HT+ has always had. PhD are the only brand in sports nutrition to add peptide bonded Leucine peptides to our Whey protein product, which sets the formula apart from the usual, generic online brands supplying whey as a commodity. Pharma Whey HT+ is designed and formulated with results in mind. Leucine is an extremely important BCAA, in fact it’s so key to your muscle building progress that it’s often called the “anabolic amino acid”. This is because Leucine activates a muscle-building pathway called mTOR 5-7. mTOR is extremely sensitive to Leucine and decreasing concentrations signal to mTOR that there is not enough dietary protein present to synthesize new skeletal muscle protein, so mTOR deactivates. Increased Leucine levels signal to mTOR that there is enough dietary protein to synthesize new skeletal muscle protein, so mTOR “turns on” muscle growth. When you combine the powerful, muscle building effects of Leucine (in peptide bonded form for even greater absorption) with a precision blend of the 3 best sources of whey protein available (Whey Isolate, Whey Concentrate and Hydrolysed whey Isolate), then you have a serious muscle-building Whey protein product. Pharma Whey HT+ also uses Whey protein from grass-fed cows only. This is important as the whey is fresher and delivers a higher concentration of naturally occurring “good fats” like Omega 3 and CLA.
