Whey Protein, Creatine & Glutamine Combo Studies!

Does a mixture of whey protein isolate, creatine and glutamine help increase strength? Read more and find out the results of several different studies!


Whey Protein, Creatine & Glutamine Combo

Whey Protein and Creatine Combo Study

Researchers from St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada, tested various strength and muscle parameters including lean body mass, bench press and squat one rep max strength and knee extension/flexion power in 36 males during and after six weeks of resistance training.

The researchers randomly assigned 36 males one of three scenarios,

  1. Supplementing their diet with nothing (placebo), or
  2. With either whey protein or
  3. Whey protein plus creatine monohydrate.

The study found that the group that used both whey and creatine had a greater increase in lean mass and bench press strength than the other two groups. Knee extension power also increased in the combination and whey groups, but not in the placebo group.

There was no difference in the rest of the parameters measured.

The important message from this study is that the increase in lean mass was greater when whey protein and creatine monohydrate were used together than if only one was used.

Whey Protein Isolate, Creatine and Glutamine Combo Study

Another recent study found that creatine and glutamine supplementation significantly increase lean body mass and strength. And yet another found that whey protein isolate supplements increased glutathione (the most important endogenous antioxidant and immune system enhancer).

Power Drink contains large amounts of whey protein isolate, as well as creatine monohydrate and glutamine. Not only that, but it also contains several other ingredients meant to maximize training results.

By maximizing the anabolic and fat-burning effects of exercise and increasing training energy and intensity, Power Drink is a powerful training supplement.

Do You Think You Get Greater Results By Taking Whey Protein, Creatine And Glutamine Together?

Yes - Absolutely!
No - I Don't Think There Are Any Additional Benefits.
