Whey protein is a great protein and has become a staple supplement for the body building industry and for all athletes.  Today people use Whey as an alternative to fatty, cholesterol filled, high calorie meals. Whey protein is derived from milk and is a healthy meal supplement.


There are  3 general levels of Whey Protein: Concentrates, Isolates and Hydrolysates. Concentrates can range from 25% whey by weight to 85% protein by weight and takes longer for body to breakdown and digest. Isolates are 90% plus protein and is more efficiently digested (Gold Standard). Hydrolysates are predigested and hydrolyzed for easier metabolic break down but is more expensive and does not taste as good (Platinum).  Isopower is a Gold Standard Level 100% Whey Protein.  Isopower is blend of Hydrolysates and Isolates to get 92% + whey by weight and it tastes great and is loaded with Branch Chain Amino Acids. Compare Isopower 100% Gold Standard Whey to ON’s 100% Gold Standard.


Whey has more recently caught on with the anti-aging/longevity minded groups for its effects on immunity. One of whey’s major effects is its apparent ability to raise glutathione (GSH).  The importance of GSH for the proper function of the immune system cannot be overstated.  GSH is arguable the most important water-soluble antioxidant found in the body.  A growing number of studies have found whey may potentially reduce cancer rates, combat HIV, improve immunity & reduce stress and lower cortisol. These studies also have revealed that Whey may help increase brain serotonin levels, improve liver function in those suffering from certain forms of hepatitis, reduce blood pressure and improve performance.

ISOSHOT is a liquid protein formulated as a meal supplement for weight loss or for indications including protein-energy malnutrition, involuntary weight loss and recovery.  ISHOSHOT provides 15 g of liquid protein, which differs greatly from other proteins due to their high content of amino acids: Glycine, Proline and Hydroxyproline in a concentration that is approximately 10-20 times higher than any other leading proteins in the market. Their proprietary blend of amino acids and pure collagen are absorbed more efficiently into the blood stream compared to other protein supplemental products in the market. Insufficient supplies of these amino acids results in painful joints, brittle finger nails and hair.  ISOSHOT’s Collagen Hydrolysate also has preventive and regenerative effect on bones, cartilage and tendons. 

ISOSHOT & ISOCURE Serving size  = 34 ml (1packet)
Glycine :              4.53g
Proline:               2.58g
HydroxyProline:    2.22g

An ISOSHOT  liquid collagen protein supplement program can be an effective method to support weight loss, strong bones and connective tissues as well as improvements in skin, hair and nail appearance.  They can help improve skin elasticity, joint function and supports an increased metabolism and helps firm and tone your body.  These products are a collagen peptide building block which do not react with drugs or other foods or ingredients, bringing about a phase of regeneration and stability in joint cartilage.

Recommended Usage of ISOSHOT & ISOCURE to benefit from Hydrolyzed Collagen

As hydrolyzed collagen is a protein, it can supplement your daily protein intake, including essential amino acids which your body cannot produce. Our ISHOSHOT and ISOCURE products both come in a variety of flavors, and are fat/cholesterol free. They are specifically formulated to meet your protein needs, and are fiber enhanced to aide in other dietary initiatives. Typically, adults are recommended to have an intake of at least 46 grams of protein per day for women and at least 56 grams of protein for men. Special needs arising from injury, surgery, cancer treatment, or joint pain recovery increase the need for essential proteins, and it is recommended to discuss with your doctor about your recommended intake. Both ISHOSHOT and ISOCURE contain 15 grams of protein per serving, and because of their utilization of hydrolyzed collagen, take advantage of the many benefits mentioned in this article. Additionally, ISOCURE is fortified with bone health supplements as an added boost for joint and bone-related recovery or strengthening.
