Isopure Shakes

A lactose-free, high-protein meal-replacement shake.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Meal replacement shakes are a good way of getting many nutrients your body needs. It's convenient and simple. It can also be a very effective way to lose some serious weight.

Isopure Shakes have gotten some publicity lately with the dramatic weight loss results of rocker Courtney Love. She lost over 40 pounds with Isopure Shakes. In 1998 Nature's Best, a ten-year old company specializing in diet and weight loss supplements, introduced Isopure. Isopure is the first meal replacement, or after-workout supplement, to have a whopping 50 grams of 100% pure ion exchange whey protein isolate. Impurities like fat and lactose are removed to provide the consumer a powerful weight management product.

All formulations of Isopure are lactose-free, which means less gastric disturbance and minimal bloating. One of the nicer aspects of the ingredient list of the Isopure products is that they have little or no sugar. In addition, Isopure is rich in branched chain amino acids and glutamine. Glutamine supplementation can minimize the breakdown of muscle tissue and improve protein metabolism.

PRO
  • It's a simple way to get neglected nutrients that are essential to optimal fitness
  • Isopure shakes can be mixed with a spoon, so you don't need to lug around a blender
  • Established company
  • Lactose-free
  • Contains no fat
CON
  • The only negative to doing shakes as a meal replacement is that it's doubtful that you will make it a lifestyle habit forever. But, if you use them as after-workout supplements, that can easily be seen as sustainable.
PRODUCTS

The Isopure shake powders come in many flavors, including Dutch Chocolate, Creamy Vanilla, Strawberries & Cream, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl.

Also available is a line of Isopure Zero Carb juice drinks, in delicious flavors like Icy Orange, Passion Fruit, Alpine Punch, Apple Melon and Grape Frost.

EXERCISE

There is not an exercise routine that accompanies the Isopure Shakes from its manufacturer.

CONCLUSION

Protein is essential for everyone, and especially important if you want to build lean muscle mass. If you find it hard to get adequate amounts of protein, a high quality shake mix like Isopure is a suitable solution. And don't think this is just for hardcore bodybuilders; everyone looking to supplement their nutrition and get a lean physique should give Isopure Shakes some serious thought.

I have been using Isopure for the past 2 weeks. but have not felt much of a difference. I really do not know when to consume the powder. On workout days, I have 1/4 scoop before workout, 1/2 scoop after workout and another 1/2 scoop before going to bed. While on non workout days, I just have 1/2 scoop before going to bed.
Please advise when and how much quantity should I consume.
Thanks.

50 prams of protein per serving? If you are diabetic or have early kidney disease, you will damage your kidneys even more. And the sad part is that you might not even know that you have diabetes or early renal disease.
I do like to use isopure, but will have half of one before a workout and half after a work out for muscle fuel.

Being diabetic, the zero carb is what i use. as far as the taste goes. yea its not great but you can add nonfat and low cal stuff to it to improve the taste and texture. i have used nonfat yogard, frozen fruit or juice with it and blend it into a shake style drink. i have tried many many diets and the only one that has really worked is the medifast which has the same protien shakes in it. so i am adapting my own type of diet using the isopure as a meal replacement for 1-2 meals a day and then eating lean and green. ill let you know how it works out.

The Zero Carb version of Isopure tastes pretty bad, but the Low Carb (only 3 grams of carbs and no sugar) tastes absolutely phenomenal. Dutch Chocolate is the flavor I prefer. It tastes better than Myoplex (which is a great MRP by the way.)

We've been using Isopure Low Carb Chocolate for years. It works well as a protein supplement as well as meal replacement and we tend to like this flavor the best. You can purchase it in 3.3 and 7.5 lb from dps nutrition at great discount prices.
