To feel and perform your best, day after day, your protein needs must be met.

Hammer’s Whey Protein is super pure—free of lactose, fat, and added sugar, and is derived from US-raised, grass-fed, hormone-, and antibiotic-free cows. A whopping six grams of the multibeneficial amino acid, L-glutamine, are added for additional health benefits.

Whey Protein FAQs

Are your products tested for heavy metals?

Yes, Hammer Nutrition products are tested for heavy metals and meet or better established safety levels. The manufacturer of Hammer Nutrition supplements requires that all potential raw material suppliers provide a Certificate of Independent Laboratory Analysis-covering no less than 15 specific items-with EVERY shipment of raw material. One of those specifics is this:

Statement of, and References to, Industry Accepted Methods of Analytical Processes to establish that Raw Material meets FDA standards for microbial content, heavy metals, solvents, and pesticides, and results of such analysis. (Must be detailed and include the Name, Contact Person, and Phone Number of the Independent Laboratory that conducted this Testing).

What is the difference between Whey Protein and Recoverite and what is the best time to use either or both of these products?

Every serving (1 scoop) of Whey Protein contains 15 grams of 100% whey protein isolate and 6 grams of glutamine. For athletes doing a purely strength workout (e.g. a weight training session in the gym), consuming 1 scoop of Whey Protein immediately after the workout is a great to provide the lean muscle tissue with the amino acids it needs to repair and rebuild. The glutamine in the product, among its many benefits, is ideal for helping maintain a strong immune system. Consuming 1 scoop of Whey Protein prior to bedtime is also a highly beneficial practice—the body receives an excellent dose of amino acids, which it will use during a time (sleep) when it does many of its reparation/recuperative processes, and the glutamine will elevate serum human growth hormone (hGH) levels, which has anabolic (muscle building) effects. Lastly, a serving of Whey Protein taken any time during the day is an excellent way to bolster your daily protein intake, helping you reach your optimal amount.

Every serving (2 scoops) of Recoverite contains 10 grams of the same exact whey protein isolate that's in Whey Protein, as well as 3 grams of glutamine. Every serving of Recoverite also contains 33 grams of complex carbohydrates; Whey Protein contains only 0-1 grams of naturally occurring carbohydrates (no added carbohydrates). Unlike a "strength only" workout, immediately after an aerobic/endurance workout the body needs these carbohydrates to replenish and increase depleted glycogen stores. Both the protein and glutamine components in Recoverite assist in the glycogen restoration process. The protein also supplies the amino acids needed to help repair and rebuild the muscle, and the glutamine supports healthy immunity. Recoverite (but not Whey Protein) also contains the trace mineral chromium polynicotinate (ChromeMate®), which maximizes insulin functioning (very important in the glycogen restoration process), and l-carnosine, which is a powerful antioxidant.

Is there a reason Whey Protein does not have l-leucine in it?

Q: Is there a reason Whey Protein does not have l-leucine in it, which helps maximum protein synthesis?

A: Whey Protein is 100% isolate and each scoop supplies 1649 mg of l-leucine. Whey protein isolate is the richest source of all nine essential amino acids, including the three branched-chain amino acids, l-leucine, l-isoleucine, and l-valine.

Protein per serving seems low in comparison to other protein products.

Q: In reviewing the Whey Protein product, the protein per serving is 15 grams, which seems low in comparison to other protein products. Your thoughts?

A: Each scoop of Whey Protein contains 15 grams of whey protein isolate, which, compared to other protein sources, is the superior protein source for a number of reasons (see the articles Hammer Whey Protein and Stay Strong and Stay Healthy for more). In each scoop there is also 6 grams of the multi-beneficial amino acid glutamine, which provides dozens of benefits of its own. Other protein powders may have more grams of protein in a serving, but oftentimes they're mostly a blend of a bit of whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate (a lower-quality form of whey protein), and casein protein, the latter being one that we do not consider to be a quality protein source.

How to Use

Mix one scoop of Hammer Whey with 4–6 oz of water, unsweetened oat, almond, or rice milk. Use post-exercise for added protein during the day and especially before bed.

Add a scoop to smoothies, pancakes, and other foods for added dietary protein.

PRO TIPS

No added sugar or artificial ingredients.

We use only premium-quality rBGH-free whey protein, produced in the USA from 100% grass-fed happy cows.

Completely free of antibiotics.

Whey protein isolate is 97% lactose-free and tolerated by most individuals–even those with dietary intolerances.

DO NOT use before or during exercise; metabolism will initially produce some ammonia, a cause of muscle fatigue.

 

5 Secrets of Success

How To Hammer

INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN

Whey Protein Isolate – The most bioavailable of all protein sources, it contains the highest percentage of the nine essential amino acids (EAA)—those that the body does not manufacture and must obtain from dietary sources. Whey is also high in the branched-chain amino acids (BCAA’s) that are needed for tissue repair and immune system support. Our grass-fed Whey Isolate is approximately 90% protein, and 99% lactose free.

L-Glutamine – The most abundant amino acid found in muscles, L-glutamine is essential for a multitude of recovery processes but is rapidly depleted during intense exercise. Its role in glycogen synthesis (carbohydrate storage) and the repair and rebuilding of muscle tissue are among its many important functions. It also contributes to growth hormone release, and is a key component for intestinal and immune system health. Low levels of L-glutamine have been shown to correlate with over-training syndrome.

Stevia – A natural, calorie-free sweeter derived from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana, a plant native to Central and South America. It does not affect blood sugar levels or contribute to tooth decay like sugar does.

Whey Protein

I have been using your chocolate whey protein for many years now. Sometimes I will mix it with 6oz of water and drink it before bed. Every day it is used for my version of bullet-proof coffee. It is the best tasting whey I have ever consumed.

Excellent and Clean Protein, but Getting Expensive

I’ve always enjoyed Hammer Whey Protein but as all products it’s gettting expensive. I’m now having to be much more selective in my choice of Hammer products.
