Cellucor Brings a Serious Protein Contender!
COR-Performance Whey is the new protein product from Cellucor as a part of their ‘COR-Performance’ series of products. This line aims to offer commodity products at competitive prices to cover all the essentials of your supplement needs. The product has skyrocketed up the sales charts at online stores due to a reputation for outstanding flavoring and its very competitive price in the ever more expensive whey protein market.
COR-Performance Whey Ingredients
Cellucor opted for a simpler route with their Whey Protein Isolate/Whey Protein Concentrate mix in this product. By avoiding a huge blend of a half dozen protein sources in one product, Cellucor has stayed true to the basic principles of this line of supplements. Based on the macro ingredients shown on the label, the product can be figured to contain around 50% WPI and 50% WPC.
Cellucor has also decided to include a couple of digestive enzymes (Lactase, and Protease) which will aid in digestion and absorption of the product. You can count on the accuracy of these labels as well. Since the product is manufactured in a GMP-certified Facility (Check out the NSF’s GMP Certified list for Integrity Nutraceuticals, and Garden State Nutritionals) as well as being regularly tested for banned substances by Informed-Choice.org, you can rely on the precision of the product’s labeling. (You can see their recently and randomly tested batches on the informed-choice website).

Benefits of Whey Protein
Supplementing with whey is a great way to help you meet your daily protein consumption goals. The benefits of consuming a high protein diet are many and varied, with a great body of scientific study to back them up
- Consuming more protein in your diet can aid in fat loss when compared to carbohydrates (See this study, one of several for details)
- Supplementing with whey protein can result in increased lean muscle mass as a response to exercise (Check out this study for more info).
- Supplementing with protein can elevate levels of Muscle Protein Synthesis (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21045172
It must be noted of course that these benefits are typical of higher dietary consumption of protein in general and that whey protein should serve only as a supplement to your dietary protein consumption and not a primary source of protein in the diet.
Directions For Use
Use to supplement your daily protein needs, Protein consumed 1-2 hours before and within a couple of hours after your workout is consistently shown as beneficial, and supplementing with whey is an easy and convenient way to meet that requirement. Taking a great tasting protein shake is also a good way to replace unhealthy fatty and sugary snacks throughout the day while at the same time increasing protein consumption.
Side Effects of Whey Protein
Whey protein is generally well tolerated and is gluten-free. However, every person is unique and if you are particularly lactose intolerant you should consider buying a pure Whey Protein Isolate product such as Cellucor Super Sport. You should also careful review the label for any ingredients you are particularly sensitive to.
