ASN HP100 - Advanced Sports Nutrition is proud to announce that we are one of the first scientifically based companies to introduce 100% Hydrolyzed Peptide Isolated Whey Protein. Protein which without discussion is most effective when it comes to building lean muscle mass, fast! Scientifically analyzed by to be over 4 times the hydrolysation level of another claimed scientifically proven 100% Hydrolyzed Whey Protein.
  • More growth & immune factors than any other protein
  • Hydrolyzed isolated whey peptides
  • Lab tested for quality
  • Research proven higher nitrogen uptake
  • Lactose free!
  • Low carb and fat
  • Over 600% more lean muscle mass
  • Over 4 times more potent than it's nearest competitor!

Everyday we see new companies introducing sports supplements, jumping on the bandwagon, using marketing tricks and hype to brainwash you into believing their protein is ‘the best’ and unique, only to find they use lower grade cheap material. On the other hand you have companies telling you that “all proteins are the same, there’s not much difference. This is far from the truth! At ASN-Advanced Sports Nutrition we pride ourselves in bringing genuine scientifically researched sports supplements using the most advanced and highest quality materials available in the world!

ASN can easily develop a protein supplement that tastes like a scrumptious dessert, but we will never, ever go that way. It is very easy and cheap for a company to bring out such a supplement. The market is flooded with these proteins. On the other hand you still want it to taste ok, that’s why we also research and develop supplements to taste pleasant, without destroying the integrity of the product, so it ensures you still get results. The reason why you take a protein is for better health, recovery and muscle growth. You don’t want to be wasting your money on something that tastes good with no benefits or results.

Whey was originally discarded as a by-product in the production of cheese until it was found to contain various growth and immune factors, plus the whole spectrum of amino acids. These growth and immune factors are identical to the ones produced in our body and are derivatives of growth hormone. These same factors are also found in small quantities in other milk derivatives such as colostrum. But to be effective they must be seperated and isolated from the milk product. If you take a look back in history with processing whey, everything began with whey protein powder, followed by whey protein concentrate and then whey protein isolate. Processing became refined and we are now at the stage where we can make a high quality product with very low fat and lactose. However this is an expensive process and most companies use a lesser processed whey because it's cheaper and they can make more profit. Side effects from these include bloating and flatulence. A high quality whey isolate, which a few reputable companies use, seems to be the perfect answer for recovery and growth.

Unfortunately that is not the case. Even though it is promoted that whey protein isolate contains all these fantastic growth and immune factors, even though the whey protein has been isolated from the fat, lactose and ash, the growth and immune factors are not isolated and are still part of the protein matrix. We are not told that our digestive system sees them as unprocessed, so enzymes attack them and break them down. Sure we get a protein that has the whole spectrum of the amino acids which helps a little with recovery and growth, but not to the optimum level as with growth and immune factors being isolated and absorbed intact. ASN now has the answer!

ASN Advanced Sports Nutrition is a company which strives for one thing. Results! ASN have been working with some of the most reputable laboratories in the world which have developed a whey protein in which the body can utilise all the growth and immune factors. ASN is proud to announce the development of HP-100, 100% Hydrolyzed Isolated Whey Peptides.

Using advanced 'NANO' filtration technology, a membrane based nanoscale proteolytic reactor enabling protein digestion, peptide separation and protein identification using mass spectrometry, this technique uses ultra-sonic vibrations during one of the many filtering processes to isolate the different individual peptides containing the growth and immune factors according to their response to certain sonic levels. This process gently isolates the different factors completely with no molecular damage to the peptide's fragile structure. This allows us to tailor the protein's peptide profile to yeild functional properties not available in other whey protein products. By emphasizing the 'bio-active' whey peptides, HP-100 exhibits unique properties geared towards increasing muscle growth and recovery. After careful peptide isolation, the protein is then hydrolyzed.

Hydrolyzed Protein is protein that has under gone an enzyme process much like that which happens in your digestive system. Specific enzymes have ‘predigested’ the protein allowing for faster transport through your digestive system, into your body. Within your digestive system, because the enzyme process is not controlled, there is no way of controlling the enzymes to stop breaking down the protein further when a specific growth factor, immune factor or bio-active peptide has been reached. In HP-100's case, the hydrolyzation process is all controlled. The enzymes are controlled to cleave the protein peptides at a precise point to isolate the growth factors, immune factors and bio-active peptides in a pre-digested form. This allows for direct utilisation into our body. With there being different levels of Hydrolyzation, the higher the level, the more growth factors, immune factors and small peptides will be isolated within the protein, supplying more 'bio-active' peptides which will give you better results. However, if you go too high with the degree of hydrolyzation (dh), the 'bio-active' peptides will be broken down and lost. An ideal degree of hydrolyzation is a value between 15-25%, to separate and isolate the 'bio-active' peptides within the protein.

The phrase '100% Hydrolyzed' means that the tub of protein only contains hydrolyzed protein and there are no added different proteins such as amino acids or non hydrolyzed protein. This does not relate to the Degree of Hydrolyzation (dh), which is a measurement of the processing the protein has gone through. 50% Hydrolyzed Whey Protein would mean that half of the protein is hydrolyzed and the other half is not.

After training, restoration of blood glucose and energy is the no.1 priority of our physiology. Unless the right material is present, the body will mobilise and sacrifice muscle protein (amino acids) in an attempt to restore energy levels. This then effects muscle recovery and growth. To provide the optimal environment for recuperation and growth we must supply a high concentration of amino acids and growth factors immediately after training to stimulate protein synthesis. The problem is most proteins are too slow to enter muscle cells straight after training because it has to be digested and growth factors are destroyed. HP-100 however overcomes this problem, the only protein to do so. Because HP-100 was designed using advanced 'NANO' technology and controlled hydrolysis techniques, it provides intact ‘digested’ growth and immune factors with an array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAA's, ready for immediate absorption. When taken straight after training, muscle cells literally ‘gorge’ themselves full of peptide amino acids provided by HP-100 to signal anabolism within the muscle cell. This provides accelerated maximum muscle growth and recovery.

We know it can be confusing, just enter any health food store and look at the vast number of protein supplements on the shelves. Add to this the many 'lies' written on the labels and the deceiving advertisments. Every label promises the world but not many deliver the goods. One way to find out if your particular protein is good is to have an independent test run by a lab which is not only inconvenient but extremely costly aswell. We know, we've done it!

If the protein you are using, even if mixed in water, constantly gives you gas, have flatulance, makes you bloated or gives you stomach upsets, this suggests that this product contains lactose and/or the protein has been cheaply processed. This means that the claims made on some protein labels as 'zero carbs','zero sugar' and 'zero fat' are absolutely false. But the companies get away with it because of the cost involved in proving otherwise. We highly recommend that you return it to the outlet and ask for your money back.

The faster a protein can be absorbed within your body, the better you will be able to recover. If you are using a protein after training for recovery & muscle growth and don’t put on any muscle within 14 days, the protein is being absorbed to slow, therefore you are using the wrong protein, wasting your money. It has been scientifically proven that fast absorbing protein's like HP-100 when taken frequently induce an anabolic growth effect where as slower absorbing proteins only prevent muscle tissue loss. Because HP-100 is hydrolysed to the optimum level, your digestive system sees it as being fully digested and it is absorbed straight away. Muscle growth and recovery is a certainty with ASN’s new HP-100.

You may have noticed other proteins cause stomach discomfort, bloating and flatulence. This is because the digestive enzymes produce partially broken down protein from complex and poorly processed protein, including milk, which then pass down through the digestive chain to be broken down by bacteria. Lactose has the same effect which causes digestive problems. Due to the action of bacteria breaking down the proteins and lactose, hydrogen sulphide and other products of putrefaction are produced causing bloating and flatulence. However with HP-100 this problem is non existent. The Peptides, specific growth and immune factors, that are in HP-100 have been separated from impurities, including lactose, through many stages, then each isolated peptide undergoes an enzyme process much like that which occurs in your digestive system. Because HP-100 is fully ‘hydrolyzed’ its specific peptides are absorbed straight away with no side effects ( eg: bloating, flatulence, etc..). It’s like having an injection of protein, going to work straight away.

Because HP-100 contains isolated and separate peptides within the powder, they are easily dispersed in water when mixed in a drink shaker. One serve (28g), provides over 90% protein, and easily mixes in only 300ml of water, providing a simple chocolate or vanilla tasting drink. With other ‘protein shakes’ it is recommend you mix them up with at least 500ml of milk. After training most people don’t feel like a ‘milk shake’. Because HP-100 is mixed in only a small amount of water, it makes it very easy to consume directly after training.

A lot of people judge a protein by the amount of amino acids it has per serving. This is true in regards to comparing the amount of protein in the product against another but it is not related to the performance of the product or the amount of ‘bio-active’ peptides in the protein. It’s the ‘bio-active’ peptides that have the specific functions within our body. The amino acids are the building blocks for those peptides. How those amino acids are arranged determine what peptides are formed. There are millions of combinations for the peptides, ones that are used by the body, ones that are not used and ones that are dangerous and toxic. It is the ones that are used in the body that we should be interested in. Unless these are in an isolated form then the possibility of them being absorbed intact is very remote as discussed earlier. Therefore, it is the amount and type of isolated peptides which governs the best protein and not the quantity of protein or the amino acid profile.

Tried this simply to see if I would notice a difference in recovery/gains vs normal whey blend. Can't say I noticed anything really different. But taste was fine, which apparently can sometimes be average with whey hydrolysates.

Used this product on and off for a few years now during my hard training cycles and really rate it. Probably one of my favourite hydrolysates. Taste is fine considering its a hydrolysate but price is a bit steep.

If your looking for a protein powder that provides a high level of protein compared to that of the level of carbohydrates, then ASN's HP100 Whey Peptide Isolate is for you. Each 28g serve provides 24.3g's of protein, to only 2gs of carbohydrates. This is much better than any other proteins I have found on the market. Although the taste isn't the best, I've found mixing it with a small amount of Milo or similar makes for a pleasant experience. The cost of the product is high, however this can be expected from a product of such quality. Available in two flavours, Chocolate and Vanilla. This is the premium level in terms of protein.

I see a lot of companies using wheat protein in their supplement formula’s. Is there any advantage with having wheat protein and how does it compare against whey protein?
If you find a sports supplement with wheat protein in it, TAKE IT BACK! This has to be the scam of the century! We still cannot understand why some people still have it for breakfast! Let us give you a run down on ‘wheat protein’. Wheat protein is the isolation of the protein from wheat. There are 2 main complex proteins in wheat, Glutenin and Gliadin. These 2 proteins form what is commonly known as Gluten. Gliadin is a type of Prolamine. It is made up mostly of Proline with some Glutamic Acid (as a component of the Glutamine molecule). Now here is the problem! Even though Gliadin sounds like a good protein having a glutamine component and a proline component , because of its complexity, ( the way the proteins are bound ), humans have trouble digesting it ( our digestive enzymes cannot break it down fully) and it also causes toxic side effects which may be caused through the breakdown of the protein by bacteria in our large intestine. ( Cows don’t have problems digesting it. They have six stomachs!) Glutenin, like Gliadin, is also complex and has only a small proportion of other amino acids, excluding Lysine, which there is none, (a necessity for sports people), and is mostly made up of glutamic acid. ( aka; Glutamine component. ) which is tightly bound within the protein structure. Because of this, Gluten ( a mixture of the two) is of poor biological value, having a value of 54. Compare that to whey protein having a BV ( biological value ) around 159 or HP-100 Fully Hydrolyzed Whey Peptide Isolate which has a BV of over 182! Note: Biological Value (BV) is a measurement of the amount of protein retained in the human body per gram of protein absorbed. The higher the biological value of a given food or supplement, the greater the retention of its constituent protein. The standard BV upon which other foods are measured is whole eggs, with a BV of 100. Only a few foods have a higher BV than whole eggs (e.g. Whey), while most foods have a lower BV compared to whole eggs. Toxic Effects of Gluten ( Wheat Protein ) are as follows; Digestive System Allergy to Gliadin is responsible for Celiac Disease that causes inflammation and atrophy to the Villi and Intestinal Wall of the Jejunum of the Small Intestine. Wheat Protein causes Flatulence in many people. Wheat Protein exacerbates the symptoms of Crohn’s Disease in many (approximately 70% of) Crohn’s Disease patients. Wheat Protein exacerbates the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Immune System Gliadin is a common trigger for (Food) Allergies.: Nervous System Allergic reactions to Gluten (as occurs in Celiac Disease) may result in Inflammation in the Brain that leads to Headaches. Skin Dermatitis patients in which Allergies are the underlying cause usually exhibit elevated serum Gliadin levels. Wheat Protein has been implicated as a cause of Psoriasis (this assertion stems from the fact that when Gluten is removed from the diet of Psoriasis patients, their condition generally improves).
Is HP-100 useful for people who do not lead active, athletic lifestyles?
Without Question! Even people who are routinely sedentary can benefit from using HP-100. This is because HP-100 is not just your ordinary protein supplement, it's a growth factor extract. The 'bio-active' peptides in the HP-100 stimulate and provide factors for the body's 'somatic hormones', including insulin, thyroid, growth hormone and glucagon, whose principal functions are to direct the nutrient energy flow into various metabolic pathways. As we age our growth and immune factor levels diminish over time. HP-100 can restore these growth and immune factors to levels which will enable us to achieve optimum health.
When I got taught biology at school, we learned that for protein to be absorbed into our body it must be fully broken down into individual amino acids. If this is true, how can the peptides in the HP-100 be absorbed into the body. Even though the protein is fully hydrolyzed, doesn't the peptides still have to be broken down to the individual amino acids to be absorbed?
Research into protein science has come a long way very quickly and it seems text books have been unable to keep up the emerging research. The same can be said about research in regards to gene technology. It has been found that proteins do not necessary have to be broken down into individual amino acids to be absorbed into our body. How do we know this? Well, it happened by accident, or we could say by illness. It has all to do with a little protein found in wheat. It's called Gluten! In certain individuals they are sensitive to the protein Gluten, in a immunologic sense ( produce antibodies), which results when they eat foods containing Gluten. For those not up on their biology, an immunologic response occurs within your bloodstream. It is known that protein is only antigenic, ie; able to stimulate an immunologic response, if it is in the form of a relatively large protein molecule within the body. It must be noted that digestion of a protein, even to the polypeptide stage destroys its antigenicity. Those individuals in which an immunologic response to ingested protein occurs must therefore be able to absorb larger proteins other than those from the breakdown into individual amino acids. It was then thought that people allergic to gluten had a defect in their digestive system due to abnormal mucosal cells. It has since been established that circulating antibodies to wheat glutens or its fractions are frequently present in patients with no defect in their mucosal cells. It is now recognised that the mucosal cells of the intestine can in fact permit polypeptides, di and tripeptides resulting from peptic and trypic digestion of proteins to be absorbed directly into your circulation. What this means is that we can design and manufacture a protein, whose makeup consists of only isolated individual polypeptides, dipeptides and tripeptides, that enables it to be directly absorbed into the body. This can only be achieved through hydrolyzing a protein. The problem is that this protein may also still contain polypeptides that we are allergic to, or of no biological value. A more effective protein would be to have these unwanted peptides removed. To remove these we must subject the protein to extra processing, such as a NANO Technology process as used with HP-100 to isolate all of the bio-active peptides. This is what separates apart HP-100 from any other Hydrolyzed Proteins, Pure Isolated Growth & Immune Factors that can be directly absorbed into your body, for better health, growth and recovery.
Can I use HP-100 as my sole source of protein?
They say variety is the spice of life and that goes for nutrition as well.We do not recommend you use HP-100 as your sole source of protein unless your have some sort of health problem in which your doctor has recommended that HP-100 be your only source of protein. HP-100 has been designed as a genuine protein supplement. Something that you take in conjunction with your food. It has been designed to supply special benefits that can not be obtained in sufficient amounts from intake of any other foods. Using HP-100 frequently in conjunction with a healthy diet will not only enable you to achieve your protein requirements,but it will also enable the nutrition you have consumed to be more efficient in directly repairing and maintaining your body, enabling you to recovery properly after exercise and also achieve optimum health. The advantage of HP-100 over other protein sources is also the speed at which it can enter your body. At specific times, like just after finishing exercise, nutrition has to be fed at the fastest possible rate to enable proper recovery and growth. Only HP-100 can achieve this. Normal food and even other protein supplements are too slow in entering the body. We recommend you take HP-100 at specific times during the day in conjunction with a normal healthy diet.
Why have a hydrolyzed protein over a normal isolate or concentrate?
As we have said before, a high quality 100% hydrolyzed protein has had all the ‘bio-active’ peptides separated and isolated. This has been achieved using a NANO filtration process and passing the protein through the exact same enzyme process that happens in our digestive system to break down foods and supplement materials. Except, this process is all controlled. Therefore after consuming a protein like that of HP-100 our digestive system sees it as already being processed and the protein peptides are able to be absorbed directly. Now, consuming a protein that is not a high quality hydrolyzed protein, we have to break down the protein by enzymes and bacteria in our digestive system which is not controlled. Because this process is not controlled, ie; the enzymes and bacteria keep breaking down the protein until you end up with the individual amino acids, you don’t know what beneficial peptides, if any, are going to be absorbed into your body. It's a hit and miss type situation. You might get the whole spectrum of all the amino acids, which will help a little with recovery and muscle growth, but not to the extent of that if you were to get all of the bio-active peptides, which is all of the amino acids already made up into the building blocks, directly involved in recovery and muscle growth. Think of it this way: You are building a house. Is the house going to be built faster by individually making each brick out of sand and mortar, or having them ready made sent straight from the factory. It is logic to think that consuming a protein like HP-100 more frequently is going to be more beneficial for health, recovery and muscle growth than having a slower digesting protein that is going to sit in your gut between 4-8 hours just rotting away. Definition: The process in which bacteria break down organic material such as protein is called 'rotting'. The process in which bacteria break down carbohydrate is called 'fermenting'. The process in which bacteria break down fat is called – a miracle fat loss supplement! (joke)… Flatulence and bloating after consuming a protein drink is caused by the protein ‘rotting’ in your digestive system. So if you don’t want to look like you have a ‘beer belly’ or ‘fart like a trooper’, consume HP-100 two to three times a day.
Is HP-100 able to be consumed by Vegetarians?
Yes, HP-100 can be consumed by vegetarians. How is that you may ask? Isn't HP-100 made from whey protein, which comes from milk, a dairy product? Even though HP-100 uses whey protein as a base, because of the processing it goes through, there is no characteristic of dairy left in the finished product. We could achieve this using soy or rice protein as a base, but whey protein has the best amino acid profile of any other protein, plus it has specific 'biological' growth and immune factors which are beneficial for muscle growth and our health. HP-100 can be classified as a 'growth factor extract'. It is different than any other protein on the market. It uses the latest in protein technology to separate and isolate the different types of growth and immune factors contained within whey protein. Then any other 'useless' proteins ( ie; such as lectins that cause allergies), fat, ash, lactose and other impurities are 'thrown away'. What you get is pure isolated biological peptides in a (pre-digested) hydrolyzed form. There are no characteristics of dairy left in the protein. Therefore it is perfect for Vegetarians to consume.
What's the difference between Degree of Hydrolysis and Percentage of Hydrolysis in regards to protein and how do these relate to the performance of the protein?
Hydrolysis is the breakdown of a chemical linkage between units of complex molecules to yeild smaller molecules. This involves enzymes called Hydrolases with the addition of water, which catalizes the reaction of the breakdown of the complex molecule. The hydrolases used in the breakdown of protein are called proteases. In the production of making peptide isolated protein the proteases used in the manufacture are identical with the same enzymes we produce in our digestive system to breakdown protein. The difference is the manufactured method is all controlled where as in our digestive system it is not. This is where the terms, Degree of Hydrolysis- ( DH ) and Percentage of Hydrolysis- ( % Hydrolyzed ) come from as this is the measurement of the methods used in the contolled process of manufacturing protein. Percentage of Hydrolysis simply means the percentage of the protein which has been acted upon by the enzymes in the hydolysis process. If a protein is 50% hydrolyzed it means that the enzymes were able to act upon half of the protein before the process was stopped. 100% Hydrolyzed means that the enzymes have been able to act on all of the protein during the hydrolysis process. Any percentage of hydrolysis below 100 is termed Partially Hydrolyzed. Marketing wise you can use this figure to promote the amount of hydrolyzed protein in the container. 100% Hydrolyzed would then mean that the container only contains hydrolyzed protein and nothing else. Any other value would mean that other ingredients have been added into the protein, i.e.other protein or extra amino acids. The higher the percentage, the more peptides the protein will contain, but the size and bio-activity of those peptides is determined by the Degree of Hydrolysis. The higher the peptides, the more efficient the protein will be absorbed into your body. Degree of Hydrolysis ( DH ) is the measure of the breakdown of the protein by the enzymes. A protein that has a DH of 100 has been broken down fully into individual amino acids. The Degree of Hydrolysis can be used to determine the performance and quality of the protein. Have the Degree of Hydrolysis too high and the 'bioactive' peptides, ( growth and immune factors ) are destroyed. Have the Degree of Hydrolysis to low and the bioactive peptides will not be isolated within the protein, with the growth and immune factors still being trapped within a larger peptide molecule. It has been found that a DH above 15%, but no higher than 25%, is an ideal level to aquire the seperation of growth and immune factors within the protein. Any hydrolysis level below 10% will yeild a protein with separated larger peptides for quicker absorption than a protein isolate but it does not contain any isolated growth or immune factors. It is the amount of growth and immune factors within the protein that will determine the performance and results you get from that protein. A lot of people judge a protein by the amount of amino acids it has per serving. This is true in regards to comparing the amount of protein in the product against another, but it is not related to the performance of the product or the amount of 'bioactive' peptides in the protein. It's the 'bioactive' peptides in the protein that have the specific functions within our body and determine the performance of the protein and not the amount of individual amino acids. The amino acids are just the building blocks that make up the peptides. Within the protein there are millions of combinations for the peptides, ones that the body uses and ones that the body doesn't use. Having the protein go through advanced technology processing using state of the art hydrolysis techniques at the idea level, like HP-100, will ensure you will get isolated bioactive peptides for maximum results and performance. Therefore it is the amount and type of isolated peptides which governs the best protein and not the quantity of protein or the amino acid profile.
Would it affect the absorption rate of HP-100 if I mix it with Skimmed Milk? I normally mix it in milk to give it a creamy shake taste but I don’t want to do anything that may stop HP-100’s muscle building effects?
The simple answer is YES! Milk does affect the absorption of HP-100. Therefore we recommend taking HP-100 in water straight after exercise to enhance recovery and muscle building. However, other times of the day, mixing HP-100 in skim milk is OK. Combining HP-100 with skim milk will provide your muscles with the potent anabolic properties of HP-100 as well as the strong anti-catabolic properties of calcium caseinate – the main protein in milk. By slowing the absorption of the HP-100 through the stomach into the bloodstream, by mixing it with milk, will ensure that circulating amino acid levels remain high for longer. This will provide a steady stream of growth-promoting peptides, stimulate muscle protein synthesis rates and reduce muscle breakdown during the day.
A lot of guy’s I know are adding dextrose or glucose into their HP-100 after training. If I haven’t got any glucose, is it alright to use table sugar?
Sugar isn't a bad idea, but the research shows that glucose-enhanced supplements enhance recovery much better, particularly when taken immediately after training. Glucose enters the blood stream faster and produces a more rapid, significant insulin spike than sugar does. Glucose is also shown to produce more effective glycogen replenishment within muscle when consumed after training. Sugar is made up of both glucose and fructose (fruit sugar). To enter the body it must be broken down into its individual components, glucose and fructose. In scientific studies it has been found that in sugar, the glucose component is used to make glycogen and the fructose component is then store as bodyfat. So if you can, use pure glucose or dextrose. These can be purchased at your local supermarket or you can use HPC High Performance Creatine with its other cell volumising ingredients.
