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.*

simple the best

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.
