Product Overview

VP2 Whey Isolate - One Of The World's Most Powerful Muscle-Building Proteins!*

Protein is protein, right? WRONG! That type of foregone thinking will stop your progress dead in its tracks.

Protein is a critical nutrient responsible for tendon, ligament, and muscle strength. The more effective the protein is at nourishing and supporting the recovery from exercise and growth process of these critical links, the more strength, power and lean muscle growth you will be able to produce.*

Your muscular growth and strength potential is only as good as the nutritional support you provide your body. Feed it sub-par protein and you'll get sub-par results. This is not opinion, this is scientific fact.

Flashback to 1992

In 1992 AST Sports Science revolutionized the sports nutrition world by introducing the first whey protein supplement. Since then, building maximum muscular strength has taken on an entirely new dimension.

Fast-Forward to NOW

Several years of continued development and refinement, VP2 Whey Isolate breaks new ground in strength and muscle-building supplementation.*

How VP2 Works - The Science

VP2 has an enhanced absorption delivery system that supports the supply of critical amino acids within muscle and promotes a more constant, uninterrupted state of protein synthesis, cell volume, and muscle anabolism.*

VP2 creates a high level of cysteine within the bloodstream.* Research has suggested this to be essential to the protein regulation process within the body. A high and constant supply of cysteine channels protein metabolism toward muscle growth and away from muscle breakdown. VP2's cysteine supply may enhance muscle anabolism and strength.* VP2 is also high in cystine (two cysteine amino acids joined together). This dipeptide is extremely rare in other foods and protein supplements. It is critical to the formation of glutathione within the body.

Glutathione is the centerpiece of all antioxidant and detoxification defense systems within our body and is the third biochemical pathway that leads to muscle growth and strength increases.*

Heavy and intense training lowers glutathione levels. Increasing cellular glutathione leads directly to increases in muscle mass and strength. VP2 promotes supports glutathione levels to support increases in strength and muscle mass.*

This is by far the best tasting and easiest to mix protein powder I have used. Not too sweet but a great vanilla flavor and mixes well with all types of fruits.

This product works well but, the taste isn't great. It was the first protein I have ordered and I made the mistake on getting it in citrus and I couldn't even put my blender bottle close to my face to drink because it smelled so bad. It also doesn't mix well I had to use a blender for the short time I used this product. If you decide to buy get it in any other flavor and you should be good.

VP2 was the first whey product I'd ever used courtesy of a care package from family. While VP2 is not the best tasting whey product, one must note that Hydrolyzed Whey Isolates are a very pure form of whey protein and thus, quite difficult to improve in taste. The fact that AST is able to market a palatable form of this is telling. VP2 mixes quite well when mixed with a shaker cup. As noted before, since it is hydrolyzed it digests quite quickly and is a very clean form of protein. While a bit pricey, it is a quality product and worth spending the money on; Bodybuilding.com offers one of the best prices for this product. Chocolate and Fruit Punch are the their top flavors.

VP2 is a great whey isolate protein. Although the formula changed recently, this is still a very solid whey isolate protein. While the primary whey was once the hydrolyzed whey isolate, I still have no issues with the easy digestion or easy mixing of VP2. This is a pretty straightforward protein with solid macros. I understand the flavor profiles have been enhanced and while I'd tried all the flavors previously, I've only tried Creamy Vanilla and Double Rich Chocolate from this new formulation. These are both great. No added garbage in AST's protein. No protein spiking with aminos or anything else. This is a quality product.

This protein is expensive for the money. Ive used it previously due to the ingredient profile. They changed formulas and removed the Sunflower lechitin and replaced it with the much cheaper soy lechitin which bothers my stomach. There is an epidemic in this industry where companies use really cheap ingredients to save money. Unfortunate to see this company do so as well. Will not buy again

I don't know if I received a bad batch, but this is the weakest flavor I have ever had. I could barely taste the mocha cappuccino flavor. The flavor is just so weak!

DO NOT BUY THIS! This product USED to be 10/10, but now its GARBAGE! They recently changed the formula (without announcing it) and now the protein is completely different. It used to mix flawlessly and was smooth, now it mixes horribly and is clumpy as hell. Absolutely AWFUL, don't waste your money.

I used this a few years ago to get in my best shape ever. It tasted great and really worked. I lost fat really fast. This year, I tried it again, and it just didn't work. Doing the same plan, very slow progress. So I looked into and see that the formula was changed. I emailed a certain former natural pro who always touts VP2. He at first said that nothing had changed. When I challenged him with the former and current ingredients, he suddenly changed his tune and said he had nothing to do with AST and had no knowledge. Really lowered my respect for him I am very upset. I really liked VP2 a lot. But I know that most companies care more about money and it sticks that AST went the money way. Well, they'll never get my business again. Now I don't know who to trust. Maybe I should just not use protein powder anymore

I have been using this Whey Protien Fruit Punch flavor for nearly 10 years and have always loved it. I was never able to force down other competitors products and when I found this I never tried another. Recently it appears AST changed the formula of the Fruit Punch and it does not compare with the taste and quality I have come to expect. The new formulation has a slightly increased serving size, but tastes far more watered down than previous formulas and even with the increased serving size, you get the same amount of protein as before. Also the product clumps up in my shaker cup and does not dissolve well any longer. This product does have a good amount of protein so if you don't care about the clumping or the flavor, give it a try.

I love the product and have been using it for a few years now but the change in the Cirtus and Fruit punch flavors was a HUGE MISTAKE. They are clumpy and taste more milky instead of light, fruity and tart like in the past. The taste is just plain off and that's unfortunate. I will most likely be changing products for pre and post workout protein.

This is the best hydrolized (predigested) Whey Protein Isolate (purest form) available and it contains Aminogen. Your blood protein levels will spike quickly while working out and drinking this, which is what you need for recovery and building. This stuff tastes amazing mixed with Tropical Punch Kool-Aid. And I add Creatine and a few other micro-supplements, like Taurine and Glutamine peptides...

Special whey that is digested fast because its highly processed. Very Pricy! I always wanted to use it when I was in grade 11 in 2005! Now its 2014 its still there so its not super new but still stands out in the crowd! If you take the citirus flavor and mix it with water.... pass it on a random guy or girl they think its some weird juice. Its very juice like.... it doesnt look like a milk product but it is! and it shakes exteremly well with water! I mix it with preworkout... i know its bad if you mix preworkout with other ingredients but! it mixes well if your short on time!
