Review: ISOPURE Zero Carb Protein Drink

Isopure from the company Nature’s Best, is one of the most unique protein drinks on the market today. It’s one of a very few, if not the only drink to offer 35-40grams of whey protein isolate (best quality of protein) with absolutely zero carbs or fat! Another thing that makes it different than other protein drinks on the market is that it is so pure that it is completely clear and see through, whereas other drinks resemble milk or chocolate milk. They do this by using their complete Ion Exchange technology which creates pure whey protein isolate with zero carbs; the process also removes other impurities leaving Isopure carb, fat, and lactose free! Also, due to the microfiltration process it also does not cause gas or bloating which other whey proteins have been known to cause in some people.

As for the taste, some flavors are definitely better than others in my opinion, and it does take a little to get used to. After I swallow down a gulp I find that it leaves my mouth feeling dry and thirsty rather than refreshing, which could suck for someone who wanted something to quench their thirst after a hard workout. There is a little bit of a funny after taste with each drink, but again it’s not a big deal and you’ll get used to it! My favorite flavor is actually coconut, which I really don’t like in true form, but as for the drink it’s really good with minimal weird aftertaste.

Now there are all kinds of protein drinks on the market today; all of them with different and similar purposes and nutrients. Some have carbs, fats, and vitamins and minerals which for example could be treated as a meal replacement drink. Isopure Zero Carb on the other hand is just pure whey protein isolate, which is great for lots of things, but not necessarily for a meal replacement. Instead I love to use Isopure to help supplement my daily protein intake. Let’s say for example if I have a meal that has low to no protein in it, then what I’ll do is drink either ½ or the full bottle of Isopure with it to get in my protein. This way I don’t have to worry about taking in too much additional carbs or fats because it’s pure protein! Just be careful that when you go to grab a bottle you get one that’s marked, Zero Carb, and not one that’s marked MASS as they look identical, but the mass one has a bunch of carbs and more so for the people trying to put on, well, mass!

  1. Hey Jordan, is there a daily recommended amount of protein woman should be taking in vs men? I'm not really sure if I am taking to much or to little. Is it based on how much you are physically working out?
