Protein blend with gourmet taste.
What do you look for in a protein supplement? More importantly, what should you look for? Let’s be honest: in 2020, taste is paramount to the experience. Amazing taste was our priority for the reformulation of Core PRO – and we succeeded beyond our wildest dreams, if we say so ourselves.
But this is Core Nutritionals, meaning that function must always match taste and form. Core PRO is no different. While the protein blend in Core PRO was always industry-leading, we have made it even better. Our blend of whey concentrate, whey isolate, and milk protein isolate delivers smooth texture, fast and slow-digesting proteins, and a complete amino acid profile that suits your needs. In other words, have perfected the marriage of TASTE AND PERFORMANCE, and the result is Core PRO.
Core PRO is a clinical-strength, sustained release protein formula, specifically designed to keep you fueled with the right growth/recovery agents over extended periods of time. This innovative blend provides the perfect arrangement of both fast-uptake and sustained-release proteins, from superior cold-processed whey proteins and micellar casein-rich milk protein sources. This strong synergistic blend helps promote optimal growth and recovery by providing the vital building blocks your body needs, exactly when you need them most. Our superior protein blend contains a generous array of BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids) in their naturally-occurring biological ratios, to delay fatigue and expedite your recovery.
The benefits don’t stop there. To make this the most effective recovery formula available, we’ve enhanced it with a powerful digestive enzyme blend, including protein-digesting proteases, to improve absorption and accelerate nutrient uptake. The beneficial fatty acids from MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) in Core PRO help preserve lean mass while unleashing your body’s natural metabolic potential. And unlike some formulas, you never have to worry about taking it at the wrong time. Staying fueled all day or overnight never tasted so good!
We said above that protein powders need to – or at least should – have a purpose: to improve recovery times, and ultimately, body composition. But how does that occur? Or more specifically, what needs to happen in the body in order to recover from a workout, and subsequently improve body composition. To sum it up with one phrase, net protein balance needs to be positive.
When you vigorously train or exert yourself, a process called protein degradation (the breakdown of muscle protein) begins so that the body can fuel itself, and a process called muscle protein synthesis (the creation of muscle protein) slows down. Think of this like shutting off your engine (protein synthesis), in order to fuel your car (muscle protein breakdown). As this entire process plays out, the available pool of amino acids in skeletal muscle depletes, as they too are drawn in and broken down in the natural, catabolic process during exercise training.
While this situation is quite adequate during a training session, it’s precisely the opposite of what we want afterwards. At that point, we want the available pool of amino acids to increase, protein degradation to slow or stop, and muscle protein synthesis to increase. Enter protein supplements. Protein powders are a quick, convenient way to rapidly increase the available pool of amino acids in skeletal muscle.
However, not all proteins are created equal when assessed within the matrix of molecular triggers, enzymes, and amino acids that constitute skeletal muscle protein synthesis. Low quality blends, fillers, masking agents, and the like reduce the net protein content of many protein products, ultimately reducing lean muscle impact.
A quality protein supplement not only contains a high amount of protein, but the protein sources from which it draws need to be themselves high quality – and the benefit a particular protein source has can be assessed by analyzing its amino acid profile. Human skeletal muscle makes the most use out of a few, particular amino acids (the BCAAs among them), and so a quality protein needs to have an amino acid profile that is optimal for this context.
We chose the protein blend for Core PRO with optimization in mind. Our mix of cold-processed undenatured whey protein concentrate, cross-flow microfiltered whey protein isolate, and milk protein isolate has a complete amino acid profile that has been shown in research to increase nitrogen retention, lean muscle impact, and satiating ability (the feeling of fullness). This blend has also been specifically configured to provide both rapid and sustained additions to your body’s amino acid profile – meaning your recovery is not only supported immediately after a session, when you most need it, but over time as well.
Best of all, we have moved to afully transparentlabel for Core PRO. Meaning that not only do we disclose the protein sources themselves and their specific yields, but we have also disclosed the entire formula’s amino acid profile. You can see, for example, that each serving yields a full 2.6g of leucine – a leucine dose supported in the literature to maximally increase muscle protein synthesis.
Here is a more complete breakdown of each protein source:
Cold-processed undenatured whey protein concentrate:Whey protein concentrate is probably the most common form of whey protein you will find. However, how it is processed is where the benefit truly lies. This process of cold processed undenaturization preserves the molecular structure of the amino acid particles as well as the immune boosting benefits that it contains. This undenatured protein is also a rich source of amino acids, including those needed for the synthesis of glutathione, which is an important antioxidant that can be depleted by stress (exercise stress included). This makes it a great foundation for your post workout recovery nutrition.
Cross-flow microfiltered whey protein isolate:whey protein isolate is an extremely “clean” form of whey protein. It yields a higher amount of amino acids, half of which are from the essential amino acids (cannot be made by the body). Microfiltration eliminates a large majority of the fat and lactose from the whey, which makes it easily digestible and quickly absorbed into the body. This cross-flow process uses a highly intricate method to isolate the protein. It is not subjected to chemicals and is thus left in its most natural state.
Milk Protein Isolate:milk protein isolate is obtained through the partial removal of non-protein materials from skim milk (lactose and other minerals). What you are left with is a dry product that contains more than 90% protein by weight. This product contains both casein and whey proteins in their original proportions found in milk, without combining separately produced casein and whey proteins. It contains very little fat and lactose and also has a very high amino acid composition making it a perfect addition to this blend.
This blend has also been specifically configured to provide both rapid and sustained additions to your body’s amino acid profile – meaning your recovery is not only supported immediately after a session but will also carry you to your next meal. On top of that, our flavors are out of this world! We’ve also boosted this protein blend with digestive enzymes that will provide you with all of the confidence that those nutrients you just supplied your body with will do their part in your quest for the optimal result!
DigeSEB Digestive enzyme blend:
One can easily make the argument that dietary enzymes – and in particular, digestive enzymes – are the most consistently underrated and overlooked component to a supplementation regimen. These powerful little protein structures influence or outright control a vast, complex network of bodily functions. In a fitness-specific context, digestive enzymes play an absolutely crucial role in the breaking down of dietary carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into their constitutive parts, and therefore allow your body to use them in various processes (glycogenesis, protein synthesis, etc).
Despite their critical function, many supplement companies overlook the necessity of digestive enzymes and do not include sufficient levels (and kinds) of enzymes in their products. For a whey product, in particular – a compound that requires significant digestion and breakdown – this is madness.
As usual, we take a much more comprehensive, clinical approach than the average. In Core PRO, we have included a digestive enzyme blend called DigeSEB comprised by amylases, proteases, lactases, amylases, and cellulases, allowing for a full and complete breakdown of all PRO’s components. Research suggests that whey absorption through the blood is heavily impacted by its gastric digestibility. Using DigeSEB ensures that the protein – along with its milk and whey sugars and fats – are completely broken down.
DigeSEB ensures that Core PRO not only provides gourmet taste and clinical ingredients within the protein itself, but that your protein also increases the effectiveness of your pre and post-workout nutrition in general.
Coconut Oil Creamer (Medium Chain Triglycerides):
Coconut oil made of 100% Medium chain triglycerides has been shown to have the greatest health benefits. MCTs are made up of a chemical structure that allows them to quickly and effectively bypass gastric uptake for transport directly to the liver for oxidation and then used for energy. Their unusual chemical structure and metabolic process has resulted in MCTs being a focus for a wide range of therapeutic and exercise supplement uses.
In the context of exercise science, recent research has shown that MCTs significantly (up to 65%) increase resting energy expenditure, along with dose-dependently reducing fatty acid deposition in adipose tissue. These results suggest that MCTs are effectively increasing the body’s metabolic response to food intake.

SUPERIOR PROTEIN - MUSCLE BUILDING EDITION
THE STORY OF SUPERIOR PROTEIN
Gaia, the Mother of All Life, watches over her chosen King as he prepares for battle against those who would see him fall. The only thing separating the King from the demons that seek to stop him is the Warp Gate. The Warp Gate leads to another dimension, one of purity and enlightenment. With the signal from the King, the Guardians prepare to open the Warp Gate and put into motion the ultimate battle.
It is this inspiration that has spawned Superior Protein. A synergistic bond between two pure beings seeking refuge in the next dimension after battling through a sea of evil. Only by boldly forging ahead can enlightenment be achieved.
RECOVER AND REBUILD
When you workout, your body goes through an amazing process. First, during exercise you are destroying your muscle fibers and tissue. Now this sounds like a bad thing, right? But not so fast. Your body reacts to this stress by rebuilding itself better and stronger than before, to deal with that stress more effectively in the future! During this rebuilding phase, we can help our body recover even stronger by feeding it certain nutrients after a workout.
Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS) is the process of rebuilding the muscle tissue that has been damaged. This muscle tissue is made up of proteins and this is where Superior Protein steps in and gives your body a major boost!
THE PERFECT BLEND
As I said before, Superior protein utilizes a protein blend of Whey Protein Concentrate and Micellar Casein to increase the benefits.
But what the heck does that mean? Isn’t all protein the same? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Whey Protein Concentrate is a quicker digesting protein full of amino acids and nutrients. It is also absorbed very quickly which is critical right now.
*NOTE* Superior Protein uses WPC80. 13.7g of it yields 80% protein (10.96g) so the formula reflects the TRUE amount of protein found in the formula and DOES NOT include the part that does not contain protein.
(Visual Pathway #5 Concentrates>Isolates)
Eventually WPC80 will run out of nutrients and your body will not be fully recovered. This is where the baton is passed to Casein, a slower digesting powerhouse full of amino acids and nutrients that can last hours longer than WPC80.
Think of Casein as the Tortoise and Concentrate as the Hare. When you combine the two you get a longer lasting and more effective recovery period than you would using them separately.
(Visual Pathway #2 Fast/Slow Digestion)
That sounds awesome, right?
But wait, there’s some potential problems (but don’t worry we got this covered!)
Proper digestion is always tricky with supplements and specifically protein. Why drink protein if your body can’t properly break it down and digest it?
In steps scientifically backed Digezyme which has been shown to increase protein absorption.
Think of Digezyme as a protein producing jackhammer. As protein is ingested, Digezyme smashes it down into much smaller particles allowing for easier and more effective digestion.
(Visual #3 Digestion)
Superior Protein also contains two ingredients scientifically proven to increase MPS (brick building) and lean muscle mass when combined with whey protein.
