Whey Protein Ingredient Manufacturer Supplier

By definition, whey protein is a mixture of proteins separated from whey — which is the liquid part of milk that isolates during cheese production.

It is packed with vital amino acids that are absorbed instantly by our bodies. This is the main reason behind whey protein’s popularity.


1. Packed With Protein and BCAA

In case you didn’t already know, proteins are the main building blocks of the human body. They are used to create many important parts of our bodies, including:

  • Tendons
  • Organs
  • Hormones
  • Enzymes
  • Neurotransmitters
  • Certain molecules

Proteins are assembled from amino acids — smaller molecules that are stringed together to form bigger ones. These amino acids are further divided into two types:

  1. Basic amino acids: the ones your body can produce on its own.
  2. Essential amino acids: the ones you must get from food.

Proteins that are loaded with essential amino acids are the most beneficial ones, and whey is one of them.

According to this study, whey protein is packed with branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) such as cysteine and leucine.

Furthermore, another study concludes that whey protein is highly effective in stimulating growth in humans.

2. Supports Weight Loss

Protein being the most satiating macronutrient supports weight loss. It can boost energy expenditure by 80+ calories per day and make people eat significantly fewer calories per day. (1, 2)

As far as weight loss is concerned, whey may be the most effective protein type.

According to this study, replacing other sources of calories with whey protein, combined with exercising regularly can cause weight loss of about 8 pounds.

The same study also states that whey protein can help you lose weight while gaining lean mass.

3. Reduces Stress, Blood Sugar, and Blood Pressure

Whey protein does more than just help you gain muscles and strength. It also helps lower blood sugar and blood pressure, along with reducing stress and depression. (3, 4, 5)

4. Shown to Help Type 2 Diabetes Patients

According to this study, whey protein can be an effective supplement for treating type 2 diabetes because it manages blood sugar by increasing the levels of insulin.

5. Enhances Our Body’s Antioxidant Defenses

Glutathione is one of the most important and in limited supply antioxidants in our bodies. Its production is dependent on certain amino acids, such as cysteine.

As we mentioned earlier, whey protein is loaded with cysteine. For this reason, whey protein can enhance your body’s antioxidant defense in reducing oxidative stress. (6)

Health Issues Associated With Whey Protein Deficiency

Protein deficiency is directly linked with countless health issues including edema, organ failure, marasmus, impaired mental health, and weakness of the immune system.

Whey is one of, if not the best source of protein not only because it contains large amounts of protein in small doses but also because it packs several essential types of protein.

Daily Recommended Intake

A small daily dose of 1-2 scoops (25-50 grams) is enough for most people. However, the ideal dose for you depends on your size, age, and gender.

Furthermore, if you’re trying to gain muscle mass, then ingesting 100+ grams per day is the way to go.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
