What is Evowhey Protein?
This is a protein formula made of Whey Protein Concentrate with a 70% of pure protein concentration with a very low amount of carbohydrates, hardly containing fat, and sodium traces.
HSN EvoWhey is a very fast protein when it comes to absorption and digestion as it's obtained from whey, unlike Casein, which is a sustained release protein.
It presents an extraordinary creamy texture and easy dissolution, keeping its delicious flavour. There are 19 different flavours available - in a 2Kg format-.
Evowhey is produced in certified EU laboratories and is subjected to the current quality controls, with quality certificates.
Evowhey Protein includes two types of protein to get a greater consistency and reinforce the product efficiency.
- Milk Protein Isolate
- Whey Protein Concentrate Hydrolysate
The relevance of Evowhey Protein
Protein is the macronutrient par excellence as it plays the most important role in essential physiological processes in our organis. Among its most important functions we can fin:
- Protein structure synthesis, like muscle tissues forming organs and other systems support like enzyme creations for hair, nails, bones or connective tissue
- Hormone synthesis, like Insulin, Growth Hormone or Growth Factor
This way, protein is going to provide support, recovery and strength increase, as well as it tries to provide an optimal nutrient absorption by muscle cells. Thus, the body is going to use protein to carry out numerous chemical reactions, which are required in muscle contraction, cardiovascular function or keeping the immune system in perfect conditions.
Evowhey Protein is an excellent protein source with 2 important features:
- Biological value and PCDAAS
- Complete aminogram
Evowhey Protein, Bv and PCDAAS
Biological value (Bv) is a term used to measure the protein value through the percentage of protein consumed and absorbed in proportion to how much protein is excreted or eliminated as waste.
The biological value of protein will tell us the protein percentage that remains in the body and is actually used to enhance protein synthesis.
This product is found at the top of the biological value table compared to other protein sources.
PCDAAS or Protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) is, together with Bv, a different way to measure protein quality, being in this case the amino acid requirements by human body and its ability to digest them. It present a scale from 1 to 0 - therefore, protein with the best score will be the closest to 1. PCDAAS was founded as a method to measure the quality of a protein source by the FDA (“US Food and Drug Administration”) and the FAO/WHO (“Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations/World Health Organization”).
Evowhey is positioned at the top of PCDAAS table, in relation to other protein sources.
Evowhey Protein and vB/PCDAAS Table
This product's position is the first place, being the most optimal protein source, and being the vegetable source the one with the lowest score.
Evowhey Protein and its Complete Aminogram
As protein concentrate has a dairy origin, ie, from an animal source, it has the best marks in relation to the parameters that measure quality, as can be seen on the tables. One of the characteristics that distinguished this protein from the vegetable ones is its amino acid profile.
Our Evowhey protein contains all the amino acids, essential and non-essential amino acids. The protein is made up of 22 types of amino acids (which means the protein is made of chains of amino acids, of these 22 types). A important group are known as the essential amino acids and is integrated by 9 individual blocks. Its relevance lies in the difference to the rest, which cannot be synthesised by the human body and therefore it's necessary to take them externally.
Essential Amino Acid Table
Leucina, Valina e Isoleucina form the BCAAs (Branched-chain amino acids).
Histidine is considered to be essential during childhood, but not during the adulthood.
Evowhey Protein is therefore a Complete Protein as it will deliver the whole amino acid profile for our organism to have the “available” material to develop the related functions.
Evowhey Protein Composition
Evowhey Protein is a protein made of Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) in 85% with 10% of Milk Protein Isolate (MPI) and Whey Protein Concentrate Hydrolysate.
Thanks to this combination, Evowhey Protein is going to deliver 30g of protein in each serving:
- 70% pure protein
- 5g BCAAs
- 4g Glutamine
Evowhey Protein and BCAAS (Branched-chain Amino acids)
Each serving of Evowhey Protein will provide you an excellent amount of BCAAs, which form about 70% of skeletal muscle, being what it gets the greatest impact (protein degradation) due to physical stress. Each serving of Evowhey Protein is going to deliver a dose of Leucine, which has an important role in protein synthesis. In fact, thanks to Leucine, the physiological pathway called mTOR is the start up point to enhance new muscle growth and the whole mechanism implied in this process.
Evowhey Protein and Glutamine
Evowhey Protein is going to deliver a dose of Glutamine in each serving, which is a non-essential amino acid, that is our body cannot produce it on its own and needs to get it from the diet. This happens because of intense training with short breaks and poor recovery. Glutamine intake is going to involve several improvements, specially those regarding recovery speed and an optimal recovery state to allow you to get back at training going all-out.
Evowhey Protein Benefits
Due to the importance of this protein in nutrition, and the fact that Evowhey Protein is a high quality product, we will be able to observe its effects in the following situations:
Protein for Weight Loss
A person who wants to improve their body shape will focus on a dramatic reduction of body fat. A calorie reduction will be a key factor for this process, but it must be taken into account that this weight loss should not come from the muscle mass. Evowhey Protein will have an important role in the improvement of the physical appearance, providing protein (amino acids) that will complement our diet and help us reduce body fat and maintain muscle mass.
Protein for Gaining Muscle Mass
In order to grow muscle mass, it's necessary to provide macronutrients, specially protein. A training routine focused on hypertrophy is what will boost muscle growth, but it won't work on its own. This will be supported by a proper rest and a good nutrition. Evowhey Protein is now playing a role in this process as it will provide high quality protein with a complete amino acid profile necessary for such purpose (essential amino acids).
Evowhey Protein and Muscle Recovery
The recovery phase is the period that begins once we have completed our training. Providing an adequate nutritional relationship will be key if we are to shorten recovery time between sessions. Evowhey Protein delivers a high speed protein, ready to act in a short time, and adding other important elements (BCAAs and Glutamine) to reconstitute the hormonal balance and alleviate muscle damage.
How to take Evowhey Protein?
Evowhey Protein help consumers meet their protein requirements relating to the amount of daily nutritional requirements. In this regard, the first decision-making would be to know what amount of protein must ingest daily. Overall, being athletes, our requirement will be higher than the rest of the population, tending to consider values between:
1,7 and 2,5g of protein per Kg of body weight
Once this requirement is met, it will be time to consider the provision of meals per day. As a general recommendation, 4-6 meals throughout the day would be an optimal option, although this can be adjusted subjectively to the needs of the person. Associating equally an amount of protein to every meal will be very feasible. Thus, considering the protein intake of a Evowhey Protein serving, and adjusting to our condition, lifestyle, and requirements, we could take it between 1-4 times daily.
When to take Evowhey Protein
Evowhey Protein can become an excellent nutritional tool that helps us achieve our objectives. In relation to the most favorable and recommended moments are:
- 1 Evowhey Protein serving after getting out of bed
- 1 Evowhey Protein serving before training
- 1 Evowhey Protein serving after training
- 1 Evowhey Protein serving between meals
- 1 Evowhey Protein serving between meals/bedtime
Each serving of Evowhey Protein can be constituted by 0.5-2 scoops of Evowhey Protein depending on needs.
It is therefore under subjective criteria, taking Evowhey Protein in those moments, complementing with a proper nutrition plan.
With what can we take Evowhey Protein?
When consuming Evowhey Protein we have different options as it is a very versatile product, ie, we can introduce into our food through:
- Smoothies with water, milk or other drink we like
