A question that we are often faced with as nutritionists is “how will this product help me and how often should I be consuming it?” So, let us break this down for you!
What are the Key Benefits of taking Impact Whey Protein?
– Macromolecules which are essential for structure, transport, regulation, movement, signalling and act as catalysts.
– Protein feeding stimulates Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS) to recover, rebuild and adapt muscle fibres.
– Protein increases satiety so you are fuller for longer and have less chance of snacking on junk food; this way, your lean muscle gains are in safe hands!
– Whey Protein is extremely popular within the sports nutrition market due to its unique rapid absorbtion rate and uptake by skeletal muscles.
– Thousands of amino acids are what form large protein structures within your body; Glutamine is the most abundant and plays a huge role in promoting muscle exertion and recovery, immune support and gastrointestinal health.
– These make up 35% of your skeletal muscle mass and are the building blocks for new proteins.
– Consuming food alone won’t provide you with the same quality and quantity of amino acids as Impact Whey Protein.
– Contains 2g of Leucine which is the master in stimulating protein synthesis and activating compounds to help build muscle.
How is our Impact Whey Protein made?
Impact Whey Protein is a by-product formed during the manufacturing process of milk (from grass fed cattle) and cheese to leave a premium powder. Myprotein’s team of expert product developers have then added a bespoke blend of scientifically proven ingredients to support muscle growth.

Put simply, if you’re searching for a quality assured whey protein powder which delivers exceptional value for money with a remarkable nutritional profile, look no further!
What are your everyday Protein Requirements?
- Sedentary- Currently, the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends sedentary (inactive) individuals to consume 0.8g of protein per kilo of your body weight (so for a 75 kg person this would accumulate to 60g a day).
- Active – exercising places constant mechanical load on your muscle fibres, so you require more protein to repair and manufacture damaged fibres. For high-intense sports like sprinting, rugby, powerlifting etc, target 1.6-2g of protein per kilo of your body weight (so for a 75kg person this would be 120-150g a day).
- Timing – Based on the scientific literature, and to maintain protein synthesis (making of new proteins) you should intermittently spread your daily protein requirements across the day; 20-25g of protein every 3-4 hours.
- Post exercise – always consume 25-30g of protein within 60 minutes post exercise. This quantity is scientifically proven tostimulate protein synthesis.
- Body’s capabilities –Your body cannot store additional protein, so consuming excessive amounts is ineffective and costly as your body will eventually excrete this.
