Read CSN's in-depth review of Reflex Nutrition Instant Whey Pro
Reflex Nutrition is one of our most popular supplement brands and for good reason. They produce high quality, cost effective supplements that consistently deliver what our customers want. Of all their products, it is their Instant Whey Pro that has consistently been on our best sellers lists over a number of years, and when you consider how competitive this market is, you know they must be doing something right.
Claims and Benefits made by Reflex about Instant Whey Pro
Whey protein is a high-quality source of protein that contains all the essential amino acids the body needs to promote recovery after exercise and support muscle growth. Although we always promote whole food diets, supplements like whey can help meet daily protein demands which can be difficult from food alone and are also a convenient and cost-effective way to hit your daily requirements.
Reflex Nutrition’s range of ‘world-class protein supplements’ were created for both men and women to improve their physiques by providing some of the best-tasting protein shakes on the market. Reflex guarantee that regular use of their protein supplements “will help build muscle, ease recovery, boost immunity and raise endurance”.
With their commitment to quality, it is unsurprising that Instant Whey Pro is made from the “highest quality, EU-sourced whey protein” and “delivers an exceptional source of protein to help aid your goals”.
Instant Whey Pro not only represents high quality, but a lot of work has gone into its flavouring systems so it tastes “just like a milkshake, and by using our new flavour technology, we’ve created our best tasting version yet”. They even go so far as to state that Instant Whey Pro is “the best whey blend product you can buy in the world” because “it delivers more protein and extras, such as friendly bacteria and digestive enzymes” than many other leading competitors.
Reflex Instant Whey Pro Ingredients.
Unlike other whey proteins which use lower-grade whey protein, most of the whey in Instant Whey Pro comes in the form of whey isolate. Whey isolate is a 90% protein and is low in carbohydrates and fats. The Native Whey protein used in Instant Whey Pro is made through using low-temperature technology to extract the whey directly from milk, providing the highest quality source of pure whey, removing casein, fat and lactose sugars.
Each 25g serving provides 20g or protein and only 97kcal making it an ideal protein source for weight loss, recovery and lean muscle gains. Instant Whey Pro also contains digestive enzymes and four types of friendly bacteria (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bacillus coagulans and Lactobacillus rhamnosus), providing a total of two billion gut-helping bacteria per 100g, assisting in the digestion of protein and supporting a healthy gut.
Instant Whey Pro is available in several great tasting flavours including; Banana & Custard, Banoffee Pie, Choc-Mint Perfection, Chocolate Perfection, Choc-Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Vanilla Roll, Raspberry Delight, Strawberries & Cream and Vanilla Ice Cream, which all taste great whether mixed with water or milk.
CSN's Recommended Usage
Amounts required will vary depending on your goals and total daily requirements but one to two servings before or after training will help support recovery and muscle growth. Larger people may need to use 3-4 serving per day, and this can also be consumed with other meals, being used to flavour oats, smoothies and used in high-protein baking or cooking.
For each 25g serving, we recommend mixing with around 150ml of water or 175ml of milk for a thicker milkshake texture, using a shaker or blender for best results. Once prepared, consume immediately. For those wanting exact measurements, we advise using a weighing scale as the scoop measures in millilitres rather than grams, although the difference is negligible!
Can it be stacked with any other sports supplements?
Reflex Instant Whey Pro can be stacked with any supplements that are in line with your goals. For muscle building, combining it with one of our range of creatine supplements as part of a post-workout shake would offer the extra strength, power and muscle-building benefits that creatine provides.
For quicker recovery, combining Instant Whey Pro with a fast digesting carbohydrate such as Vitargo or our Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin will help support muscle growth and help replenish energy stores.
Summary of Reflex Instant Whey Pro
Reflex Instant Whey Pro is one of the leading whey proteins on the market and for good reason. It combines the highest quality sources of whey, with added extras such as digestive enzymes and ‘good’ bacteria, which many other supplements do not offer.
Providing an 80%+ protein content per serving means that pound-for-pound, Instant Whey Pro is one of the most cost effective whey proteins around, but this is far from a budget whey… It is a market leader in terms of both taste and quality.
