Machine Supplements WPC (whey protein concentrate) is made in Australia from exclusively grass-fed Australian dairy cows. Whey is a by-product of the cheese-making process, is highly bioavailable and has a high concentration of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are highly concentrated in muscle tissue and are used to fuel working muscles and stimulate protein synthesis.
Exclusively from Australian Grass Fed CowsOur protein comes exclusively from grass fed cows from Austraia. Australia has very strong dairy regulations, with no hormones used on the animals. The result is a high quality protein source with the following benefits:
- A more natural product, which leads to healthier cattle and therefore healthier protein
- It contains more Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), which not only reduces body fat, but also improves lean muscle mass
- It contains more healthy Omega-3 Fatty Acids
WPC is a less filtered version of Whey Protein Isolate (WPI). It exhibits similar benefits but comes with a cheaper price tag.
Promotes Lean Muscle Growth
Whey protein is rich in amino acids that are critical to developing and sustaining new muscle mass. Amino acids are chains of nitrogen containing subunits that make up a protein. Whey has a superior amino acid profile with the following characteristics:
A Naturally Complete Protein
Whey protein is a naturally complete protein, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids required in the daily diet. It has the ideal combination of amino acids to help improve body composition and enhance athletic performance.
High in Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)
Whey protein is a rich source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), containing the highest known levels of any natural food source. BCAAs are important for athletes since unlike the other essential amino acids, they are metabolized directly into muscle tissue and are the first ones used during periods of exercise and resistance training. Whey protein provides the body with BCAAs to replenish depleted levels and start repairing and rebuilding lean muscle tissue.
Rich in Leucine
Whey protein is an excellent source of the essential amino acid Leucine, which plays a key role in promoting muscle protein synthesis and muscle growth. Research has shown that individuals who exercise benefit from diets high in Leucine and have more lean muscle tissue and less body fat compared to individuals whose diet contains lower levels of Leucine.
Mix 1-2 level scoops (30-60g) with 250ml liquid of choice (we suggest dairy milk, water, non-dairy milk) in a shaker until dissolved. May be consumed up to 1-3 times per day as required.
We recommend taking 60 grams post workout preferably with a fast carbohydrate source such as Dextrose or Maltodextrin. WPI would however be more effective as it digests faster than WPC.
Upon Rising in the Morning
Taking 30 grams WPC when you first wake up in the morning is an effective way to break the fast that occurred during the night and kick start your metabolism. WPI would however be more effective as it digests faster than WPC.
We recommend taking 30 grams pre workout preferably with a fast carbohydrate source such as Dextrose or Maltodextrin. WPI would however be more effective as it digests faster than WPC.

Will Protein damage my kidneys?
Assuming you do not have a pre-existing kidney condition, there are no studies that indicate that protein intake is dangerous or damaging to the kidneys. If you have a pre-existing kidney condition it is advisable to consult your doctor prior to taking any supplements. If in doubt always consult your doctor and drink plenty of water, it helps the kidneys to do their job efficiently.
Will eating too much protein make you fat?
This sounds like a simple question but the answer is complex. As a general rule for the average person, you should expect any extra calories beyond what your body requires, regardless of form, to be stored in the body as fat.
What is undenatured protein?
Undenatured protein is protein that has not been damaged through the manufacturing processes. Denaturation is a process in which proteins lose their natural structure due to the application of some external stress, chemical or extreme heat. Undenatured protein is better for you and better aborbed by the body.
