Oxy whey is a lean protein formula from EHP Labs that is comprised of high quality proteins, such as Whey Protein Isolate (WPI), Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) and micellar casein to provide 24 grams of the premium protein. This is a fantastic lean protein formula with a superb rate of absorption that supports quick recovery. The product is almost completely free of fat and contains very few carbs, cholesterol and lactose.
This protein product has been scientifically formulated to contain 24 grams of whey protein that builds lean muscle mass. It has 5.3 grams of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) for muscle protein synthesis and provides only one gram of carbohydrate. The product supports immune health, lean tissue development and improves digestion. It has metabolism boosting compounds , multi-phase protein peptide delivery and advanced technology digestive enzymes. Oxy whey is a premium lean protein formula that supplies more quality proteins and very less carbohydrates with almost no fat per serving.
Some of the key features
- Top quality protein comprising 70% WPI, 20% WPC and 10% micellar casein
- Metabolism and mood enhancers
- Loaded with over five grams of BCAAs in each serve with 2.5 grams of L-leucine to promote muscle formulation
- Digestive enzymes to digest the lean protein matrix into a readily useable form providing the building blocks for muscle growth and repair
- Immunity support
- Gluten free
Whey protein isolates: Oxy whey formula provides 24 grams of quality protein of which 70% is whey protein isolate. Whey protein isolates are refined and are concentrated source of branched chain aminoacids that are readily absorbed and used by the body. Whey isolate is a filtered form of whey protein that contains almost 90% protein by weight and is almost free of lactose and other carbohydrates. Whey protein are quick to digest and absorbed and unlike other proteins do not cause stomach discomfort or bloating.
Whey protein concentrate: Whey protein concentrate helps to develop lean muscle mass, promote muscle growth and support rapid recovery after a workout. They have high biological value and protein efficiency. It constitutes 20% of the Oxywhey Lean protein and provides enough free form of aminoacids that help promote lean muscle development. Presence of free form of aminoacids is also critical in preventing the breakdown of muscle tissue.
Micellar casein: It is a type of slow releasing protein which ensures there is a constant supply of aminoacids. Micellar casein constitute 10% of Oxy whey contents. Presence of micellar casein helps to improves satiety. Micellar casein proteins are more bio-available to the body, meaning nearly 99% of the protein is used up by the body. Studies confirm that micellar casein helps to eliminate muscle fatigue.
Medium chain triglycerides (MCT): These are naturally found in coconuts and research shows that they help to increase metaboilsm. Medium chan triglycerides are metabolised in a different way by the body. They are not broken down but directly used in the liver. They are heart healthy and provide sustained energy.
L-glutamine: Glutamine constitutes 60% of the aminoacid composition in the skeletal muscles. It is necessary for the immune activity and also replenishing the lost aminoacids after a work out. Glutamine is necessary for repair and tissue resynthesis. It is an conditionally essential aminoacid as it is ''essential'' in certain circumstances where the body does not make enough of it due to stress and other conditions. Supplementary glutamine is therefore necessary to prevent protein breakdown.
L-leucine: Although whey proteins already provide leucine, Oxy whey by EHP provides additional leucine. Recent studies reveal that when additional leucine is given along with whey supplements it improves endurance, lean muscle mass than just whey supplementation alone. A study published in the 2006 issue of Journal of Strength and conditioning Research show that leucine in combination with whey had an increase in the size of quadriceps muscles and also there was a significant increase in the leg strength and demonstrated an ergogenic effect on exercise performance.
Green tea extract: Green tea extracts are rich in polyphenolic antioxidants and theanine an amino-acid that helps in improving focus and cognitive ability.
Grape fruit extract: Grape fruit extracts are rich in resveratrol a powerful antioxidant that helps in preventing free radical damage, and decrease inflammation in site.
Chromium picolinate: Chromium picolinate is an important micronutrient that is necessary for insulin to function at its optimal best. Chromium picolinate is crucial nutrient that helps in the metabolism of glucose and fat. It improves glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity.
