Maintain Muscle Mass and More with Protein

Protein is a major macronutrient our bodies need, influencing our muscle mass and many other body systems, including immune response and gut integrity.

Pea Protein

Wellness Code® Plant Protein Complete and Amino Acid Complex is gluten-free vegan protein. It helps promote lean muscle with a complete amino acid profile and 18 g of protein per serving. It’s just as good as whey, but made from peas.

Our family of protein isolate supplements offer the benefits of whey protein, but with lower carbohydrates, lactose and fat than the concentrate form. That is because we use a process called cross-flow microfiltration, which produces an isolate that is 90 percent protein and retains all important subfractions in their natural ratios.

For those looking for an alternative to those products found in the protein isolate family, our protein concentrates offer many of the same benefits to maintain healthy muscle mass and immune system health.

You don't have to choose whey to get a delicious, high-protein shake mix. Protein that provides the same branched chain amino acids and other nutrients as milk or meat can be obtained from plants as well. Wellness Code® Plant Protein: All the muscle, none of the guilt!

What are protein supplements?

If you're an active adult, odds are you're watching your protein intake—a macronutrient essential to our health. While we usually get most of the protein we need through food sources like lean meat or plant-based protein, protein supplements can help you better meet your daily needs. They're usually found in powder form and are typically used by athletes, your average fitness enthusiast or anyone looking to support lean muscle mass, exercise recovery and overall athletic performance.

Protein supplements are often whey-based and one of two types: whey protein isolate or whey protein concentrate.

Whey protein isolate vs. concentrate

There's no right or wrong "whey" when it comes to choosing a protein supplement! With whey protein, you should choose whichever type fits your needs.

Protein concentrate is the most basic form of protein and generally more calorically dense and filling. But if you're keeping an eye on your macronutrient content, choose protein isolate—it's higher in protein and lower in carbs, lactose and fat.

Whey protein powder is usually chocolate- or vanilla-flavored—great options for protein shakes or in recipes. If you're avoiding dairy, plant-based protein powder provides an alternative to whey protein supplements in the form of hemp or pea protein.

Why supplement with protein powder?

Protein needs increase based on exercise intensity, making a supplement important for those with active lifestyles. Beyond the exercise benefits, protein powders should be used by anyone who wants to inhibit protein breakdown in the body, promote immune system health or fulfill their amino acid needs.

How much protein do I need?

The amount of protein you need varies by your weight, health goals and level of exercise activity. Since the Recommended Dietary Allowance for protein is about 0.36 grams of protein per pound of body weight, a good rule of thumb for determining your daily protein needs would be to multiply 0.36 by your weight in pounds.
