The Benefits of Whey Protein

Kinetica Whey Protein has been engineered by leading sports specialists and manufactured from high quality ingredients to create an expert high protein supplement that can be used before, during and after training. Kinetica Whey high protein formula is designed to support growth and maintain muscle. Many benefits of Kinetica Whey Protein include; high levels of protein and BCAAs per serving, low sugar, gluten free, natural colours and flavours, drug tested and it is suitable for vegetarians.

Kinetica Whey Protein contains Biotein™, a whey protein based complex, created using a unique blend of whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate and hydrolysed whey protein (with pre-digested whey protein peptides) which contain essential amino acids together with digestive enzymes. These high biological value and easily digested proteins support the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. It provides over 5g of branched chain amino acids per serving and includes all the essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body and therefore must be included in the diet.

At Kinetica, our protein is manufactured in a state-of-the-art dairy manufacturing facility and we maintain full control over supply and selection, to ensure that the highest quality whey proteins are available to you. All Kinetica products are batch tested within the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) framework to ensure we offer our customers a safe and dependable sports nutrition product.

Each product undergoes 22 overall quality checks and is batch tested within WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) Standards.


Types of Whey Protein

Whey Protein Concentrate

Whey protein concentrate is protein extracted from whey that is concentrated by removing the water and is typically approx. 80% protein. It is produced by Ultra-Filtration technology and contains high levels of protein and branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.

Whey Protein Isolate

Whey protein isolate is produced by Cross – Flow Micro Filtration; a natural process which employs a ceramic membrane to remove fat and lactose without the use of heat and chemicals. Whey protein isolate has a protein content of approx.90%. This gentle procedure minimises protein denaturation, maintains a better mineral profile and preserves more of the valuable dairy fractions. The resulting proteins are exceptionally pure, virtually fat-free and contain only trace amounts of lactose.

Hydrolysed Whey Protein

Whey proteins are made up of long chains of amino acids held together by peptide bonds. Hydrolysed whey protein is created by a process known as enzymatic hydrolysis, where enzymes (naturally-occurring proteins produced by all living cells) are used to break down these bonds. This process produces peptides of various sizes and single amino acids. By mimicking the way our body digests proteins, enzymatic hydrolysis produces whey protein hydro lysates which are effectively pre-digested for superior absorption.

Whey Protein Benefits

  • Its amino acid composition is very similar to human skeletal muscle protein, providing almost all of the amino acids in approximate proportion of their ratios in muscle. Hence whey protein has the high Biological Value of 104. Proteins with a score in excess of a 100 or more provide all of the required amino acids in the correct ratio
  • Over a quarter of whey protein is made up of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). They make up one third of muscle protein. BCAAs are important as unlike other essential amino acids, they are metabolised directly into muscle tissue so are the first ones used during periods of exercise
  • Over half of the protein in whey is made up of essential amino acids. These are the amino acids that the human body cannot manufacture for itself
  • Around 12% of whey protein is made up of the essential and branched chain amino acid leucine. It plays a distinct role in protein metabolism and has been identified as a key signal in the initiation of muscle protein synthesis
  • Whey proteins are rich in glutamine which can be considered “conditionally-essential” during times of intense training
  • Individual amino acids and bioactive compounds found in whey may improve immune function and gastrointestinal health
  • Whey protein is a rich and rare source of bio available cysteine. Whey protein concentrates (approx. 80% protein) and whey protein isolates (approx.90% protein) contain at least three or four fold higher concentration of cysteine compared to other protein sources, including soya and casein
  • Whey components such as the Immunoglobulin Ig A, the amino acid glutamine, and the protein lactoferrin may be of benefit in the treatment of common complaints among athletes of repeated infections and gastrointestinal disturbances
  • Hydrolysed whey proteins provide a readily available source of di and tri peptide fractions attractive to athletes and other individuals desiring a quickly absorbed, low allergenicity protein source
  • Whey proteins are known to be much more rapidly absorbed by the digestive system. Absorption of other proteins like casein can be slowed down by acid coagulation in the stomach

Whey Protein Side Effects

Whey Protein should be consumed responsibly by following the recommendations on pack. There are no documented side effects from consuming whey protein providing you are using the correct dosages and are not lactose intolerant or allergic to dairy proteins. However there is on-going research into the long-term effects of consuming excessive amounts of protein in the diet. Some of the negatives of consuming too much protein include increased weight gain and increased excretion of calcium.
