Whey+ | Protein Powder

IT’S-ON-US MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.

One of the easiest ways to maximize muscle and strength gain and post-workout recovery is to eat enough protein.

You can get all of your protein from whole foods, of course, but many people supplement with whey for two reasons:

  1. It’s convenient and tasty, which makes it easier to eat plenty of protein.

  2. It’s rich in essential amino acids and well digested and absorbed, which makes it ideal for muscle-building purposes.

The bottom line is whether you’re trying to gain muscle, lose fat, or just maintain your body composition and health, whey protein can help.

That’s why we created Whey+, which isn’t your average whey protein powder . . .

1. Whey+ is 100% whey protein isolate, which is over 90% protein by weight.

Whey protein isolate is the highest quality whey you can buy, and that’s why Whey+ contains 22 grams of protein per serving with only 3 grams of carbohydrate and 0 grams of fat.

This means that you don’t have to waste calories (carbs and fat) on your shakes and can eat them, instead.

2. Whey+ is made with exceptionally high-quality milk from small, sustainable dairy farms in Ireland.

Irish dairies produce some of the healthiest, cleanest milk in the world, and we work with farms certified by Ireland’s Sustainable Dairy Assurance Scheme (SDAS), which ensures the farmers adhere to best practices in animal welfare, sustainability, product quality, traceability, and soil and grass management.

This means Whey+ is the perfect choice for clean, high-protein, healthy-for-you protein shakes that are a cut above the rest.

3. Whey+ is the best-tasting all-natural whey protein isolate around.

Seriously.

This stuff is downright delicious even when mixed with just water, and if you want to splurge and mix it with milk or a milk substitute, it’s like dessert.

4. Whey+ is easy on the stomach.

Ever had your stomach inflate like a balloon after drinking a protein shake?

The most common reason for this is the low quality of many of the whey protein powders on the market.

Whey+, on the other hand, is lactose-free and made from some of the highest quality dairy in the world, which means no indigestion, stomach aches, or gassiness.

5. Whey+ is 100% natural.

Whey+ is naturally sweetened and flavored and contains no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

So, if you want a clean, all-natural, delicious whey protein isolate powder with no chemical junk and cheap fillers . . . you want to try Whey+ today.

You won’t be disappointed.

In fact, if you don’t absolutely love Whey+, just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No form or no return necessary.

You really can’t lose, so order now and get ready to enjoy delicious, high-protein, low-calorie shakes that help you reach your fitness goals faster.

When we set out to create Whey+, we wanted to achieve several things.

1. We wanted to maximize the amount of protein and minimize the amount of carbohydrates and fat.

If you’re like us, you don’t like wasting calories on carbs and fat in protein powders.

We’d rather eat those calories, not drink them.

2. We wanted it to be free of lactose, artificial sweeteners and flavoring, gluten, MSG, and GMOs.

Many people are lactose intolerant to some degree, so a lactose-free whey protein means all-around better digestibility and fewer upset stomachs.

While artificial sweeteners may not be as harmful as some people claim, research suggests that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health. [1]

As for gluten, a gluten-free diet is unnecessary for most people, but those with celiac disease or a legitimate gluten sensitivity must avoid all forms of gluten.

MSG is often used to hide the natural bitter flavor of whey, and we’ve chosen not to include it in Whey+. [2]

The safety of MSG is the subject of ongoing scientific discussion, but research shows some people experience uncomfortable symptoms when they eat it. [3][4][5]

And, in general, GMO foods certainly aren’t as dangerous as alarmists would have us believe, but a large number of respected scientists believe more research should be done before we fully integrate them into our food supplies and diets.

3. We wanted it to come from cows that weren’t treated with hormones or antibiotics.

Drinking milk from cows treated with such drugs isn’t necessarily “unhealthy,” but there’s scientific evidence it may increase the risk of disease in some people. [6]

4. We wanted it to have an outstanding taste and mouthfeel.

Too many all-natural protein powders taste mediocre at best, so we wanted to create something that you'll actually look forward to drinking.

Why 100% Whey Isolate?

There are three forms of whey protein you can buy:

  1. Whey concentrate

    Whey concentrate is the least processed form of whey protein and the cheapest to manufacture.

    Whey concentrates range from 35 to 80% protein by weight, depending on quality, and contain fat and lactose. [7]

  2. Whey isolate

    Whey isolate is a form of whey protein that’s further processed to remove fat and lactose.

    Whey isolates are generally about 90% protein by weight, and as they cost more to produce than whey concentrates, they cost more in stores too. [8]

  3. Whey hydrolysate

    Whey hydrolysate is a form of whey protein that has been “hydrolyzed,” which is a process that breaks down amino acid chains into smaller “chunks” for easier digestion.

    A whey hydrolysate can be created from any type of whey protein, ranging from the lowest-quality whey concentrate to the highest-quality whey isolate. The process of hydrolysis is what distinguishes it as a hydrolysate, not the inherent quality of the protein powder itself.

    That said, most whey hydrolysates on the market are made from pure whey isolate or a blend of whey isolate and concentrate.

    Whey hydrolysate is the most expensive of the three options.

Supplement companies often tell us we’ll see better results with whey isolate or hydrolysate than concentrate, but there’s insufficient evidence to support these claims.

That said, choosing the cheapest whey you can find, which will always be a concentrate, isn’t always a good idea, either.

A high-quality whey concentrate is somewhere around 80% protein by weight, but inferior concentrates can be as little as 30%.

And if a protein is only 30% protein by weight, what does the remaining 70% consist of?

Well, unfortunately, we can only wonder, as adulteration (the addition of fillers like maltodextrin, cheap amino acids, and even flour) is startlingly rampant in this industry. [9]

One benefit of choosing a pure whey isolate powder, then, is knowing you’re getting something very close to pure protein with minimal additives.

Another significant benefit of whey isolate is the removal of lactose, which means better digestibility and fewer upset stomachs.

As with most things, when it comes to choosing a whey protein powder, you get what you pay for.

That doesn’t mean expensive protein powders are always the best, however.

Many disreputable supplement companies start with a low-quality whey concentrate and then add small amounts of whey isolate and hydrolysate to create a “blend.”

In their marketing, however, they’ll call attention to the whey isolate and hydrolysate without telling you those ingredients make up a small portion of each serving.

“Amino spiking” is another common way that protein manufacturers and sellers rip consumers off.

This scam exploits a simple loophole in supplement fact panel laws: you can add cheap amino acids to your protein powder and count them toward the total protein count.

So, for example, if a company wants to sell a low-quality protein that contains just 15 grams of protein per serving, they can pad it with several grams of an inexpensive amino acid like glycine or alanine and legally say it contains more protein per serving than it really does.

This is misleading because protein is a complex chain of up to 21 different amino acids. There are no proteins that contain only one amino acid.

Amino spiking benefits supplement companies in two ways:

  1. Better margins

    High-quality protein powder is expensive, and many amino acids aren’t.

  2. Better taste

    Whey is harder to flavor than some amino acids, which are naturally sweet.

Why hasn’t this loophole been closed yet then, you wonder? Your guess is as good as ours.

A good way to protect yourself as a consumer, however, is to check ingredient lists, serving sizes, and amounts of protein per serving before buying.

Ingredients are listed in descending order according to predominance by weight.

That means that there’s more of the first ingredient than the second, more of the second than the third, and so forth.

So, when you’re considering buying a whey protein powder, look at the order in which the ingredients are listed and the amount of protein per scoop relative to the scoop size.

If a whey protein product has milk protein (a form of protein similar to whey concentrate but cheaper and often lower quality), maltodextrin (a filler), or any ingredient other than whey concentrate, isolate, or hydrolysate listed as the first ingredient, don’t buy it.

When that’s the case, there’s more low-quality protein, maltodextrin, or other fillers in the product than whey protein powder.

Also, if a scoop of the product weighs 40 grams but there are only, let’s say, 20 grams of protein per serving, don’t buy it unless you know the other 20 grams are stuff you want. In many cases, it’s not.

Furthermore, if you see that a protein powder contains any added amino acids, be skeptical.

Many companies will promote this as a feature, but in most cases, it adds no value to the product and only means it’s more likely to be amino spiked.

So, considering everything we’ve just reviewed, a worthy whey protein powder is easy to spot:

  • Whey concentrate, isolate, or hydrolysate listed as the first ingredient

    This means the product contains more whey protein than anything else.

  • A scoop size that’s relatively close to the amount of actual protein per scoop

    It’ll never match because of sweetener, flavoring, anti-clumping agents, and other necessary substances.

  • No added amino acids

    There’s little reason to add amino acids to whey protein, including BCAAs, and so this often just means the product is amino spiked.

Whey+ Is Made With High-Quality Milk From Small, Sustainable Irish Dairy Farms

We pay a premium to source our whey protein from small, family-owned dairies in Ireland for several reasons.

1. Ireland has stricter dairy regulations than the United States. [10]

A key measurement of milk quality is the number of somatic cells present in it, which are a fundamental type of cell that forms the body of an organism.

Most of the somatic cells present in milk are white blood cells, which protect against infectious disease and foreign invaders.

Thus, the amount of somatic cells in milk indicates how healthy the cows are. Lower numbers of somatic cells in milk means healthier cows that, in turn, produce healthier milk.

Due to Ireland’s strict regulatory policies and long-held traditions of small, family-run dairies, research shows Irish milk generally has a lower somatic cell count (and thus higher quality) than much of the milk produced in the USA. [11]

This is one reason why Ireland is the 10th largest dairy export nation in the world, with over 18,500 family-owned dairy farms producing approximately 1.4 trillion gallons of milk annually.[12]

2. The milk comes from cows that spend the majority of the year outside, eating grass.

In a way, cows are like kids—the more time they spend outside, the better.

This is why studies show that the more grass cows eat (instead of other types of feed such as grains or soybeans), the more nutritious the fat in their milk and beef is. [13][14][15]

Keep in mind, however, that just because a company claims their dairy comes from “grass-fed” cows, doesn't mean they're exclusively or even mostly grass-fed.

The “grass-fed” label can be used if the cow simply ate grass at some point in its life. It does not mean it ate or eats only grass.

Unfortunately, even the “100% grass-fed” label doesn’t guarantee anything either because it’s not regulated like the organic label.

So, when you see a supplement company boldly proclaiming that its protein powder comes from grass-fed cows, take it with a grain of salt.

Just one bite of grass in their lives technically qualifies the cows as “grass-fed,” and in most cases, no agency is verifying the truthfulness of such marketing promises.

In the case of Whey+, however, it’s made with milk that comes from cows that spend the majority of the year outside, eating grass. This leads to naturally healthier herds and higher quality milk.

Additionally, many dairy cows are injected with a genetically modified growth hormone called recombinant bovine growth hormone, or rBGH, to increase milk production.

Studies suggest consuming the milk from cows treated with such drugs may increase risk of disease in some people and that more research is needed. [16]

Thus, we’ve chosen to source milk exclusively from farms that don’t give their cows modified growth hormones.

Antibiotics are also often administered to cows to help them overcome sickness and stay healthy. When used responsibly, these drugs are an important tool for reducing animal suffering and promoting and protecting the health and well-being of both cows and humans.

That said, when cows are receiving antibiotics, trace amounts can make it into their milk, making it unfit for human consumption.

To ensure tainted milk doesn’t find its way into the food supply, the farms we buy from remove cows being treated with antibiotics from the milk cycle until they’re healthy and testing free of drugs.

3. Irish whey protein has an outstanding flavor and texture.

Irish whey is noticeably richer, creamier, and more savory than even the best American whey products.

You’ll notice the difference in your first sip!

No Artificial Sweeteners, Flavoring, Food Dyes, or Unnecessary Fillers

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.[17][18][19][20][21][22]

That’s why we’ve chosen to go with the natural sweeteners stevia and erythritol instead.

Research shows that not only are they safe, but they can also confer several health benefits, including better insulin sensitivity, a lower cholesterol profile, improved blood glucose control, potential anti-cancer effects, lower blood pressure and inflammation levels, and more.[23][24][25][26]

Many supplements also contain artificial dyes, known as “azo dyes,” such as FD&C Yellow #5 (also known as tartrazine), FD&C Blue #1 (also known as Brilliant Blue), FD&C Red No. 40 (also known as Allura Red AC), and others.

As with artificial sweeteners, the consumption of azo dyes might not be as harmful as some would have you believe, but there is evidence that these chemicals can cause various negative effects in the body.[27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34]

And while artificial flavors appear to be benign, they just aren’t necessary. Natural flavors taste equally good.

The Bottom Line

Whey+ is a 100% natural whey isolate protein powder made with exceptionally high-quality milk from small, sustainable dairy farms in Ireland.

It’s also naturally sweetened and flavored and contains no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

So, if you want a clean, all-natural, delicious whey protein isolate powder with no chemical junk and cheap fillers . . . you want to try Whey+ today.

You won't be disappointed.
