The Aussie fitness community is quickly expanding. As more people join gyms, committing to regular
fitness regimes, the numbers of confused consumers standing stupefied at the selection of protein
powders increases exponentially. Whey, soy, casein, egg-white, isolate, concentrate? It can be
confusing to choose the best protein supplement for your needs. If you’re looking for a good protein
that tastes great and mixes well, try Balance 100% Whey Protein WPC/WPI.
I’m a fan of Balance products because I think they taste yummy and naughty, like a guilt-free
milkshake. The ease of digestion is also an important consideration. This Balance product has many
additional benefits above tasting scrumptious. A decent 24.2 grams of protein per serve is adequate
for the amateur athlete. Balance 100% Whey has only 1.4 grams of fat and, of particular note, only
1.9 grams of carbohydrate, 1.3 of which are sugars. It’s rare to find a delicious protein powder that
doesn’t count on sugary carbs to improve palatability.
Breaking down the Balance 100% Whey WPC/WPI, it works out to be an excellent, synergistic,
protein source comprised of a combination of whey protein concentrate, pre-digested whey protein
concentrate and whey protein isolate in a 2:1 ratio. Balance 100% Whey delivers the full
complement of amino acids, whey protein and pineapple and papaya extracts. The fruit extracts
contain the digestive enzymes bromelain and papain, and both of these proteolytic enzymes aid in
protein digestion, so it’s easy on your tummy. More advanced athletes might also choose to
supplement with HMB.
Balance 100% Whey boasts a massive 23 branch chain amino acids per 100 grams and it’s worth
mentioning the added critical cluster arginine and glutamine for recovery and growth. The RRP of
Balance 100% Whey looks a bit expensive, but do a web search and you should find some superb
deals. You shouldn’t pay more than $99 for the 3 kilo, $59 for the 1.5 kilo and about $38 for the 750
gram containers*, don’t forget to check the shipping before clicking on buy, as there can be added
costs without free postage.
All these assets of Balance 100% Whey create an ideal anabolic environment for muscle growth.
Bottom line, Balance 100% Whey is an outstanding choice for a daily protein powder. I highly
recommend it for anyone looking for a tasty regular protein supplement, particularly for first time
protein powder users due to the enjoyable flavour. Train hard!
