Higher Power 100% Whey Power
The first supplement people will decide to take when first starting on the journey that is training is a protein powder. Whey protein is almost essential to any good whey lifting routine and a lot of times the first powder you chose will impact your starting results a lot. 100% whey by higher power is a protein blend of whey protein concentrate, isolate and hydrolyzed whey peptides. These are all different forms of whey protein that dissolve in your body at vary speeds allowing for a fast hit of protein for your body right after a workout and then some slow absorption time so your body does not run out of fuel before you leave the gym. This is why knowing the ingredients in your protein blend are essential to a great choice. So now that we know it contains the 3 major types of protein that are good for post workout, what else does this product have to offer?
For one it contains a great profile of amino acids since it is made from whey. Containing 25g of protein per 34 gram scoop, giving it a protein concentration greater than 73% and also having 5g of carbohydrates is understandable. The amount of carbohydrates in Higher Power 100% Whey is a bit higher than other by a couple grams. Considering how flavourful and sweet this protein is it is obvious where those extra carbohydrates are coming from. One thing I did not like about this powder was the difficulty I had stirring it in a normal cup. If the scoop was not dead center in the glass it would start to stick to the sides, and that is wasted protein and money that's going to go down the train when you wash that cup. As most chocolate flavours the only flavour added besides the artificial ones and sucralose is cocoa powder, so you I was expecting it to have a slight bitter chocolate taste to it, which I like and it had.
A couple negative comments I would like to make is the outrageous amount of cholesterol in this product, there is whopping 80mg or 26% of your daily value for the average person. This was a big hit for me when looking at the nutrition fakes, overlooked by most the cholesterol can add up especially when compared to other brands. The majority of other brands range from 0% to 10% daily values of cholesterol but this one took the cake, or at least the cholesterol you would find in that cake.
For the low cost of 34 dollars for a 5 lbs jug it is not a bad protein as long as you watch the rest of your diet. The strong negatives are the cholesterol, sugar and fat levels in the protein which can be a turn off for people who take more than the 1 scoop a day. The upsides however can out "whey" the bad with a great combination of whey protein sources, low cost and great taste it might just be the protein for you.
As far as protein powders go however, this one was not my favourite and would not take it myself due to my diet. There is no reason to add another protein powder full of sweeteners and cholesterol. My overall ranking for this product is 6.5 out of 10. Although I love the protein combination the high cholesterol intake when taking 2-4 scoops a day is too much.
