Being manufactured from high quality forms of whey, whey concentrate and whey isolate, 100% Whey Protein Professional already contains your entire range of essential amino acids that, in the amounts present in each serving, will stimulate and sustain muscle protein synthesis for several hours, which is an important factor in supporting recovery and muscle growth.
On top of the naturally occurring amino acids found in these types of whey, 100% Whey Protein Professional also contains an extra amino acid ‘matrix’, including L-Leucine (our main driver of protein synthesis), L-Glutamine (the most abundant amino acid in the body) and Taurine (an important amino acid for general health and maintaining cellular fluid balance).
100% Whey Protein Professional also contains an added digestive enzyme blend, containing Papain and Bromelain. Papain is a type of ‘proteinase’ derived from the papaya fruit, which is an enzyme that helps in the digestion of protein. Bromelain is commonly found in pineapple, which is also an enzyme that aids in protein digestion.

CSN's recommended dosage
As 100% Whey Protein Professional is absorbed quickly and efficiently it is best suited for use either before or after training to support recovery and muscle growth. Most people will find using a single scoop, 30g serving, mixed with water or milk, will provide enough amino acids to help boost recovery and muscle growth processes. For larger, more muscular individuals, then increasing the serving size to two scoops post workout would be recommended to help support daily protein intake.
For those who may struggle to eat enough protein in their diet, then 100% Whey protein Professional can also be used as a convenient way to increase protein consumption either by adding to other meals, smoothies oats and even used to make high protein baked treats.

Can it be stacked with any other sports supplements?
Whey Protein can be stacked with several other supplements depending on your goals. To boost strength and performance then it can be taken post workout alongside creatine. Creatine is one of the most effective supplements to encourage increases in strength and performance, which as a result encourages muscle growth.
To provide extra energy to build muscle, then it can be stacked with carbohydrate powders, such as Vitargo or CSN’s highly branched cyclic dextrin. These are a simple and effective way to increase calorie intake without having to take in large volumes of food, which may be difficult for ‘hard gainers’ yet allows for you to customise intake to your own requirement. This offers an advantage compared to ‘Mass Gainers’, which can be effective but do not allow as much flexibility to your changing energy demands.
For weight loss then 100% Whey Protein Professional can help preserve muscle tissue, but to encourage further fat loss it can be used alongside one of our range of weight loss/fat burning supplements. These are designed to help you sustain energy levels, mental focus and performance, as well as help, regulate appetite thus making the fat loss that bit easier.
