Pasture Raised Whey Protein.
What Sets Warrior Whey® Apart From Other Whey Protein Products?
Defense Nutrition's Warrior Whey® is a remarkably delicious non-denatured pasture raised whey protein with all immune supportive nutrients intact and the highest biological value. Made with NO sugar added, NO sugar alcohols, NO fructose, and NO artificial additives, it accommodates the muscle metabolic needs for quality protein after exercise.
The protein profile in Warrior Whey® is pound-for-pound more impressive than any other single protein food. It provides all key essential amino acids including the muscle building glutamic acid, branch-chain amino acids, leucine, and cysteine - which play key roles in energy production, immune support and muscular development. Warrior Whey® is an exclusive source of cysteine (glutamylcysteine), which is missing in the typical diet and yet required by the body for vital metabolic and immune functions.
Warrior Whey® is made with ImmunoWhey®. It has been tested to contain all naturally occurring immune factors intact, including serum albumin, immunoglobulins, alpha lactoglobulins, beta lactoglobulins, glucomacropeptides and lactoferrin - virtually the same immune compounds that are found in human breast milk, responsible for providing the newborn with immune defenses against infections and disease. The immunological properties of pasture raised cows' whey protein such as in ImmunoWhey® have been widely documented to benefit humans of all ages.
Defense Nutrition’s Warrior Whey® is fast assimilating. For the purpose of muscle nourishment, the capacity to digest and assimilate nutrients is of utmost importance. The more digestible and fast assimilating the protein food is, the fastest it will nourish the muscle and shift it from a catabolic to an anabolic mode during the window of opportunity right after exercise.
Defense Nutrition's Warrior Whey® is a unique wholesome protein with a remarkable delicious creamy taste and unmatched nutritional value. It is inherently designed to promote satiety peptides such as CCK and GLP-1, which are known to enhance satiety, promote insulin sensitivity and support weight loss. This nourishing effect yields a great sense of pleasure, curb cravings for sweets, and help manage weight.
Warrior Whey® is naturally sweetened with no sugar added, no sugar alcohol, no fructose, no artificial sweeteners and made with a specially modified water soluble fiber that has a glycemic balancing effect and pre-biotic properties. Being low glycemic, it is the best tasting all natural protein available for carb sensitive individuals.
Defense Nutrition's Warrior Whey® is available in delicious plain, vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter, STrawberry, blueberry, banana AND green tea ice cream flavors. It can be served as a shake, a pudding or even chewed as a powder, flavors from the canister.
Start with two scoops (40g) of Warrior Whey powder, add water or milk and mix until desired consistency (shake or pudding). May be taken two to three times daily.
Quality whey protein contains immunefactors, some of which are known for their immune modulating anti-inflammatory* properties. Virtually all these whey fructions exist in human's breast milk, playing important roles in protecting the newborn from microbial infections and promoting a healthy growth and development. Following are the most notable whey's immune factors.
Lactoferrin: a multi-functional peptide to which several physiological roles have been attributed. These include:
- Defense against microbial infections
- Regulation of iron transfer and metabolism
- Anti-inflammatory activity
- Regulation of cellular growth
- Protection against disease development
Glycomacropeptides (GMP) - a casein derived peptide found in whey protein. GMP is a by-product of cheese manufacturing. Its beneficial biological roles include:
- Stimulation of cholecystokin (CKK) and Glucagon Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1)- peptide hormones that regulate satiety,food intake, and energy. The stimulation of CKK and GLP-1 has been linked to early satiety from meals, reduced food intake, increased insulin sensitivity, and weight loss.
- Inhibition of platelet aggregation, a cardiovascular protective property
- Support of beneficial gut bacteria (bifido bacterium)
- A good source of branch chain amino acids (BCAA), which increases muscle energy, promote muscle buildup and prevent muscle wasting.
Alpha Lactalbumin - most abundant fruction in human breast milk, alpha lactalbumin plays a key biological role in the production of the sugar lactose, essential for growth and brain development of the newborn. Alpha lactalbumin is believed to possess antibacterial activities.
Beta Lactalbumin - most abundant protein in bovine Whey, it is not an inherent part of human breast milk. Beta lactalbumin's main biological function is being a carrier of retinol (a pro-vitamin A) and a nutrient source for the amino acid cysteine.
Lacto Peroxidase - a peroxidase enzyme found in raw milk, known for its antioxidant anti-microbial properties. Lacto peroxidase is fairly heat resistant and can survive low heat whey processing but is generally destroyed due to ultra-pasteurization or acid processing.
Immunoglobulins G (IgGs) - the most abundant immunoglobulins in the body, with a distinct biological role of providing protection against pathogens. IgGs can bind to bacteria, viruses and fungi and protect the body (fetus and adult) by agglutination, immobilization and neutralization of their toxins. IgGs play an important role in the antibody response system.
Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) - an important source of glutamylcysteine – the most bio-active precursor for the body's master antioxidant glutathione. Glutathione plays essential roles in virtually every immuno-enhancing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging activity in the body.

In the past I have had many protein supplements. Up until now progressive /proventive was a favorite. I can say with certainty that I prefer warrior whey.
Warrior whey tastes amazing. Mixes easily, and most importantly it makes me feel good. It sits well in the stomach, keeps me feeling full, but unlike other brands I feel refreshed after drinking it. It is difficult to quantify how my body is reacting to it, but I can honestly say that I feel great when I drink it and I keep feeling great. No bloating, no stomach pain, no gastrointestinal distress.
I will be using this product to fit my nutritional needs for the foreseeable future.

I use the product in plain yogurt, in buckwheat cereal (which is gluten free), and in fruit smoothies with no sugar added.

I have not been able to stomach whey protein powder except this one. It is so gentle and after a good workout, it's the perfect nourishment. It's fast & easy and I feel amazing for a few hours after I drink it. I like the vanilla because it blends well as a base for smoothies and works in baked goods. Banana is my favorite though!

Finding a product that has all the "right stuff" is almost impossible. I have found such a product in Defense nutrition's Warrior whey. I have had phenomenal results and the taste is amazing and it actually dissolves completely so it is a pleasure to drink. I take it before intense exercise and then after for replenishment. The manufacturing process and ingredients are what the body needs without needless sugars for flavor. Please try it... you will like it!!!!

I've been impressed with the warrior whey. I have used many different protein supplements. This is by far the most easy to use- very soluble in water and I don't feel so bloated after I drink it. It almost feels like it's getting utilized immediately. I have only tried the peanut butter flavor so far and I'm impressed with the flavor.
I also starting using the supplements this week and was concerned about taking so many capsules on an empty stomach but have not had any problems with my stomach feeling upset.
It's too soon to tell if they are really helping me.

I recently learned that I'm allergic to eggs, soy and gluten and I don't like bacon and sausage so I am limited on what I can eat for breakfast. My Doctor recommended that I get more protein in my diet and told me to try Warrior Whey. It is delicious and I look forward to getting out of bed so I can have my breakfast shake and it gives me the protein boost I need to start my day!
Thanks for a great product!

You're products certainly are a cut above the rest. I never thought there would be such a drastic change between your whey and the generic "whey". Your Whey is silky smooth and is overwhelmingly tasty. Not only does it provide me with a great drink but it provides me with the proteins I need. Quality not Quantity. Great job Defense Nutrition and Ori!!!!!!

absolutely love the Warrior Protein drink! Out of the flavors of chocolate, vanilla and peanut butter, vanilla is hands-down my favorite. The chocolate and peanut butter flavors are too subtle for me, although the taste is great. I do feel my body absolutely soaking up the nutrients and I feel better, more energy and satisfied after having one protein drink. This is what I've been looking for, for a long time. Thank you for such an exceptional product (organic, cold-processed, concentrate and great tasting)!

I just wanted to say I absolutely love Warrior Whey!!! I've tried so many brands of whey protein and all left a weird after taste and left my stomach super upset. Great taste, mixes well with everything I've tried and best of all - no stomach issues at all!
My energy level is getting better by the day and I feel fantastic. I honestly believe adding this protein has made that impact for me!
