Whey protein is derived from milk and is a popular way to supplement strength workouts to build muscle. As whey protein contains all nine amino acids that the body can’t produce on it’s own, it is known as a complete protein. As it has been stripped to contain nothing but protein, it is low in fat, lactose and carbohydrates. Taking whey protein can result in weight loss, muscle gains and lower cholesterol. The three types of whey protein are whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate and whey protein hydrolysate.
Soy protein is a high quality, plant based alternative to those allergic to milk or following a vegan lifestyle. Soy protein also contains all nine amino acids that are necessary for building muscle. Soy is rich in BCAA’s, potassium, zinc, iron, and vitamin E. SoyPro is soy protein isolate containing 90% the protein and a higher concentration of the amino-acids arginine and glutamine of whey protein. SoyPro uses non-GMO soy and up to 0.6% isoflavones. SoyPro is a high performance alternative for plant-based athletes and those who prefer not to take dairy products.
Hemp protein comes from the hemp plant and contains a protein concentration of about 50%.

It contains 20 amino acids, which are the building blocks for healthy muscles. Within these 20 amino acids, it contains 9 amino-acids that the body can’t produce on it’s own.
