Whey protein is a mixture of proteins isolated from whey, which is the liquid part of milk that separates during cheese production.
Whey protein is considered a complete protein as it contains all 9 essential amino acids. It is low in lactose content. It is a mixture of beta-lactoglobulin, alpha lactalbumin, bovine serum albumin, and immunoglobins.
Taking whey protein is a convenient way to add protein on top of your daily intake. This can be important for bodybuilders and gym enthusiasts, as well as people who need to lose weight or are simply lacking protein in their diet.
Whey is generally well tolerated, though people with lactose intolerance need to be careful, and some people may even be allergic to it.

Glucotrix Energy Booster contains BCAAs (Branched-chain amino acids), a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These amino acids are grouped together because they are the only three amino acid to have a chain that branches off to one side.
BCAAs are considered essential because, unlike non-essential amino acids, your body cannot make them. Therefore, it is essential to get them from your diet. They represent around 35–40% of all essential amino acids present in your body and 14–18% of those found in your muscles.
BCAAs are mostly broken down in the muscle, rather than in the liver and play a role in energy production during exercise. They may also be involved in regulating your blood sugar levels by preserving liver and muscle sugar stores and stimulating your cells to take in sugar from your bloodstream.
Out of the three, leucine is thought have the biggest impact on your body’s capacity to build muscle proteins. Meanwhile, isoleucine and valine seem more effective at producing energy and regulating your blood sugar levels.
- Increases muscle growth
- Decreases muscle soreness
- Reduces exercise fatigue
- Prevents muscle wasting or breakdown
- Beneficial for people with liver disease
