Proteins are the building blocks of life. Every cell in the human body contains protein - the basic structure of which is a chain of amino acids.
You need protein in your diet to help your body repair cells and make new ones. Your body needs protein to build and repair muscle cells after a workout so if you want a toned body, you will likely need to up your intake. The more muscle you have on your body, the more calories you'll burn at rest.
Those following a vegan or dairy free diet can also often be deficient in protein as some of the best sources of protein are meat and dairy products.
All our products are GMO free, made using all-natural ingredients, all sourced in the UK.
Whey is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained. It is a byproduct of the manufacture of cheese. The Whey we use at STRIPPD is sourced in the UK, using the milk of grass fed cows.
It’s not a case of better or worse, it’s more about lifestyle and choice. Vegan and Whey proteins each have their benefits and it’s more about what suits you and your body. Vegan Protein is hypoallergenic (great for people that are lactose intolerant) and can be easier to digest whilst Whey Protein is higher in essential amino acids and BCAAs (the building blocks of protein) and slightly lower in carbohydrates, so both have benefits.
Both are great sources of protein with equivalent protein content with Whey Lean containing 24g per 35g serving and Vegan 22g per 35g serving. The differences are:
1/ Speed of absorption of protein & amino acids by your body: Whey Lean Protein will be absorbed faster by your body versus Vegan Lean Protein.
2/ How easy to digest they can be: Vegan is lactose free and can be easier to digest than Whey, especially for lactose intolerants.
A balanced diet is always the best. If you keep it balanced, you won’t have any problems with too much protein. There's no set limit to how much protein your body can process, as everyone is different. However, your body doesn’t store protein like it does carbohydrates and fats. Once your body has used what it needs, it will just get rid of the waste protein.
