Promera Sports has released Con-Cret Whey, and it has created quite a buzz among the fitness and supplement community.
Let’s take a look at everything there is to know about Con-Cret Whey to see if it follows in the footsteps of several other Promera Sports products.
Let’s Check Out the Formula
As you may guess, Con-Cret Whey features whey protein in its formula; however, if you are looking for a protein supplement with a bunch of different whey protein forms, you’re out of luck. Con-Cret Whey provides one protein form: whey concentrate.
Whey protein concentrate is one of the most popular whey forms. Whey protein concentrate contains lactose and cholesterol. Consequently, if you get bloated or experience stomach problems when you have dairy, the whey concentrate in Con-Cret Whey may cause similar side effects. Though, you can assess tolerance by taking a smaller dose to begin.
Sometimes when companies provide a high amount of whey protein concentrate (in Con-Cret Whey’s case -24 g) it also includes lactase, which helps combat side effects from lactose. However, I wasn’t able to find that ingredient mentioned in Con-Cret Whey’s formula.
Con-Cret Whey has stuck with the staple chocolate and vanilla flavors, but with a little twist.
Each bottle provides 29 servings and comes in a Chocolate S’more and Vanilla Cake Batter flavor. These traditional flavors are nice, though, for those that like to get creative with their protein powder. Many people use chocolate and vanilla flavored powders to make protein-packed waffles, pancakes, and cookies.
If you try out Con-Cret Whey, I’d love to hear about your experience. As soon as I can try out these flavors, I’ll be updating this review with a full flavor, tasting, and mixability section.
How Should You Use Con-Cret Whey?
You can use Con-Cret Whey several different ways. For those that are looking to just improve their protein consumption each day, you can mix 1 scoop in 8-12 ounces of water and consume at your convenience.
For those that work out consistently each week and want to improve muscle growth and repair, you can mix 1-2 scoops per serving for additional protein and BCAAs. As mentioned earlier, if you want to utilize Con-Cret Whey in healthy food recipes, the flavor options make this powder a versatile supplement.
Overall, Promera Sports Con-Cret Whey looks like a decent whey protein concentrate powder. While the price seems a little high for just a whey concentrate supplement, it provides the standard amount of protein per serving, and offers a good amount of naturally occurring BCAAs.
If you are interested in a whey protein concentrate supplement, you may want to check out Con-Cret Whey, especially due to Promera Sport’s great reputation for successful and effective products.
