Prolab Pure Whey Review
For those of you who don't know, Prolab are a company
that originated in the UK in 1989 with the stated aim of roducing quality
health supplements at reasonable prices. Having never used their products
before, I was inclined to give them a try. Here goes...
My first impression, upon viewing the label was that this
whey is very light on the calories (130 per serving). It still provides the
usual 22g of protein, but if you're looking to chisel your frame and
can't decide where to cut the calories, this may be a good place to
start. It also comes with a reasonable good amino acid profile and
doesn't contain any aspartame.
From most places, you can expect to spend £25 for a 2.27kg tub,
which is very reasonable indeed. I've even come across some deals for buying in
bulk, so if you have the time to shop around I definitely recommend it.
This shake mixes well, and tastes far better than some of it's
competitors (although gets a little foamy immediately after mixing). It's light
on the stomach as well, so you could probably manage 3-4 shakes a day on
those weeks when you're training particularly hard. On the tub it advises
dilution with water, but I wouldn't bother as it detracts from the
taste too much
Bonus: for some odd (and brilliant) reason, there are actual
strawberry pieces included in the tub. Not sure why it excited me so much,
but having just finished my course of LA Whey
I was seriously disillusioned with the effort most companies make to get
their proteins to taste good. Well done, Prolab!
The gains associated with this product are slow and steady.
Without massive doses of protein or some creatine in the mix, that's to be
expected but this does a good job of holding its own in terms of performance.
Overall, this is genuinely a fantastic product for its prices
range. It lacks some of the nutritional extras you get with other, bigger brands
but when you can afford to drink it twice as often, who cares? Looking for
