Scitec Nutrition IsoGreat Pros & Effectiveness
Scitec Nutrition’s IsoGreat is one of the purest whey protein isolates ever released. At 90% protein, the whey protein isolate used been processed via a combination of low pressure and low temperature cross-flow ultrafiltration and microfiltration techniques. The use of these techniques help to retain important sub fractions of important bioactive compounds found in whey proteins including beta lactoglobulin, alpha lactalbumin, bovine serum albumin, immunoglobulin G, lactoferrin and glycomacropeptide. These fractions are useful in supporting your immune system, which is often depressed with training. The absence of carbohydrates and fat makes this one of the leanest proteins around and ideal for the trainer wishing to obtain all their protein and amino acid needs during fat loss or weight loss periods. Another positive about IsoGreat is their transparency in terms of ingredients and dosages of the amino acids. This makes is extremely easy to research just exactly how much protein and of each amino acid you’re getting – a huge bonus over proprietary formulas.
Scitec Nutrition IsoGreat Cons
IsoGreat is a whey protein isolate, which is one of the fastest absorbing proteins available. While it provides a quick boost of amino acids to kick start muscle protein synthesis, it’s not the best protein to use throughout the day or before bed as the absorbability is so high. Depending on your training, the lack of carbs might make IsoGreat unsuitable in terms of offering performance gains, but if all you’re after is a protein hit, then IsoGreat offers just that.
Scitec Nutrition IsoGreat Taste & Mixability
There are currently 6 flavours in the IsoGreat range including: Vanilla, Raspberry, Cappucino, Orange Cream, Vanilla Very Berry and Strawberry. IsoGreat mixes extremely easily with no residue or grittiness. It does froth up a bit, but this dissipates quite rapidly. The taste is fairly mild and of moderate sweetness and if you’re after a smooth, more liquidy shake, then this is for you.
Scitec Nutrition IsoGreat Verdict
Scitec Nutrition’s IsoGreat is one of the purest, most transparent whey protein isolates around, free from carbohydrates and fat. It is the ideal protein supplement for those who are looking at weight and fat loss or trainers looking to sustain their muscle gains during a cutting phase. If you’re wanting to try other brands that aren’t from America, then Scitec Nutrition is definitely one of your best options.
