 AST's VP2

Description

AST's VP2 is a whey protein drink mix that's been scientifically proven to increase lean muscle mass and strength. It features a cutting edge Micro Fraction Isolation (MFI) and Controlled Chymotrypsin Trypsin Hydrolysis (CCTH) technology that isolates potent protein fractions. VP2 is designed to increase nitrogen absorption and retention to promote lean muscle growth and repair.

VP2's hydrolyzed oligopeptide isolated whey peptide fractions consist of precision engineered whey peptide isolate, beta lactoglobulin, alpha lactalbumin and protease. The whey protein molecules have been isolated from milk protein and purified to obtain a highly refined isolate. Whey is a major protein found in milk and contains an optimal concentration of amino acids. The addition of beneficial beta-lactoglobulin and alpha-lactalbumins promote muscle gain. Protease peptone has been included to enhance digestion and assimilation.

A double-blind, controlled study presented at the 2002 American College of Sports Medicine's annual conference found that VP2 increased lean muscle mass in bodybuilders by 615%. Two groups of experienced body builders participated in a 10 week training program.  One group supplemented their diet with VP2, the other group used an equal amount of a standard protein supplement. Researchers found that participants taking VP2 gained an average of 11 pounds of lean mass and lost an average 3 pounds of body fat. The study showed that VP2 increased strength in participants 156% greater than other proteins.

No Higher Quality in WHEY Protein Supplementation.

AST is the best, hands down. Just look at their two biggest athletes Skip La Cour and Jeff Willet, both are Natural drug-free bodybuilders who look and perform like they should be on something of question. I've been taking AST VP2 for a year now mixed in with Nitro-tech Hardcore when I feel like a change in nutritional standpoint, but I believe my biggest gains in the gym came from months at a time on VP2. The taste isn't quite as good as Nitro-Tech, but the overall quality is better for building mass. AST has my bid for the absolute best quality in WHEY you can get for the price.
