Just like us, many supplement companies take it easy around the holidays, enjoying the fruits of the previous year’s hard work.

iSatori is have none of that!

They’ve got a slew of new products in development and have slowly been releasing them during this otherwise quiet time of year around the industry.

We’ll slowly be rolling these out over the coming days and weeks as more information becomes available, but today we’ve got a good one for you!

iSatori has released a brand new protein powder named 100% Bio-Active Whey, that combines the power of whey protein with iSatori’s patented Bio-Gro™ Technology of Bio-Active Peptides.

100% Bio-Active Whey Ingredients

As mentioned above, iSatori’s new protein powder is a blend of whey proteins and Bio-Gro™ Bio-Active Peptides. There’s the usual cast of sweeteners and thickeners to that we’ll get to in short order:

  • Protein Blend (25g)

    iSatori Bio-Active Whey Ingredients

    Bio-Active Whey combines 3 forms of Whey protein along with iSatori’s patented Bio-Gro Bio-Active Peptides to create a truly unique protein packed combination.

    Bio-Active Whey, as you may have guessed, is a straight blend of whey that uses a mixture of Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC), Whey Protein Isolate (WPI), and Whey Protein Hydrolysate that combine to yield a total of 25g of high quality protein.

    WPC contains anywhere from 35-80% protein,[1] with the rest consisting of fats and carbs (from lactose / milk sugars) and perhaps a few other things like moisture. WPI is a more pure form of whey that contains at least 90% protein due to having virtually all the carbs and fat removed.

    Lastly, we have Whey Protein Hydrolysate, which are the biggest “refinement” of whey. Hydrolysates are “predigested” or hydrolyzed whey protein, by means of enzymes that yield a protein with the fastest rate of digestion of all whey protein powders. This creates a flood of amino acids that’s shuttled into the bloodstream faster than WPC or regular WPI.

  • Bio-Gro™ Bio-Active Peptides (500mg)

    Bio-Gro™ is a patented collection of low molecular weight, micro-concentrated form of Bio-Active Peptides derived from  colostrum that’s touted to act as “fertilizer for muscles.”

    The advantages to using the bio-active peptides is that they should enhance recovery, strength, and lean body mass by amplifying the body’s natural protein synthesis process. However, the research surrounding Bio-Gro is far from conclusive in our opinion.

    Bio-Gro is based upon colostrum, which there is a lot of research in terms of lean mass gains – but typically when taken in higher doses.[2,3,4,5,6]  We’re very high on colostrum – but the question has always been how much better Bio-Gro is than colostrum itself, and at what dose.

    iSatori is finally releasing much of their research around it[7,8] showing that it typically enables you to increase total training volume through improved recovery, at the very least.

    Typically, we’d suggest using a mix of creatine, betaine, beta alanine, and protein as the cornerstone of your supplement regiment before Bio-Gro, which we consider a “nice to have” instead of a “must.”

    What’s nice about 100% Bio-Whey, though, is that you’ll get to try and see if Bio-Gro really lives up to its billing since it’s included right into a competitively priced protein supplement. If you see gains over your typical protein shake, and keep everything else the same, then Bio-Gro (and 100% Bio-Whey) is clearly for you!

  • The Rest

    Rounding out the rest of the ingredients is Xanthan Gum to help thicken up the powder when mixed yielding a thicker texture and better “mouth feel.” To flavor the powder, 100% uses Sucralose as its sole sweetener as well as salt natural flavors to complete the rather minimalist ingredient list.

Wrap Up

iSatori’s new line of products is off to a promising start with the debut of their new protein powder. If you’ve never tried Bio-Gro in any of the other products iSatori offers, this may be a good opportunity to see what it has to offer without having to shell out additional dollars on Bio-Gro™ alone.

To be completely honest, we’re surprised it took iSatori this long to make this. For a company that doesn’t have a whey protein product, and given the success of Bio-Gro over the past couple of years, it only makes sense.

As long as it remains competitively priced, this offers a great 2-for-1 opportunity to get some high quality protein and a chance to try Bio-Gro for yourself. We have high hopes for the rest of iSatori’s new products as they continue to roll out.
