About Our Product
Whey Protein Isolate
Whey protein isolate is the purest form of protein in an easy to digest form. Whey is a complete and best protein for lean muscle too, with all the essential amino acids that our body cannot produce. In the isolate form, one gets more than 90% protein in the digestive system without any significant amount of fat or lactose, making it a great protein source for those with lactose intolerance.
Being a rich source of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA), whey also helps in muscle recovery and it is one of the best proteins for lean muscle. While it is the best quality protein for vegetarians, it is a good supplement to non-vegetarians who are not able to meet their protein requirements on a daily basis.
Whey stands tall among the protein ranks. The Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER) of whey is 3.2, second to egg (PER = 3.9). It has the highest Biological Value of 104 with egg at 100. The Net Protein Utilization ranks whey (NPU = 92) second to egg (NPU = 94). The Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score for whey is 1, which is similar to egg, casein, milk and soy protein.
Whey protein can be consumed to meet one’s recommended dietary allowances.
Whey Protein Concentrate
Whey protein concentrate is a go-to supplement
- When you have no time to eat
- As a filler between meals
- For your travel plans
- When nothing is available to eat
- A great snack
- Also a good substitute to satisfy your cravings without an extra intake of calories
Milk has bioactive peptides that provide immunological protection, aid digestion and may also help in the certain health conditions. Whey protein concentrate retains these bioactive peptides that provide a wide range of benefits. Whether you have it post workout or to just meet your protein requirements, whey protein concentrate is easily acceptable across a wide age group.
Whey Protein Blend
While whey protein isolate is the purest form of protein and is usually costlier because of the technology used in getting a high quality end product. In addition whey protein isolate contains more protein per serving than its counter parts. Combining the two provides the best of properties of milk along with superior quality protein at an affordable price. The combination will have lesser protein per serving than whey protein isolate alone, but more protein per serving than whey protein concentrate alone.
To enhance the digestibility and absorption of the whey isolate, thereby increasing its bioavailability, we have added ProHydrolyase® which has proven to increase the supply of amino acids in blood by 20% as compared to having whey protein alone.
Enzymes are biological molecules (mainly proteins) that are naturally present in our body. They act as catalysts to the biochemical reactions within the body by increasing the speed of the reaction. Our body produces proteases (enzymes) of its own to digest protein. When whey protein is not broken into its smallest composition by these proteases, it stays in the digestive tract for a longer time period, causing discomfort such as cramping, bloating, nausea, pain etc.Protease supplements provide these enzymes that aid digestion, making BodyFirst Whey Protein Isolate one of the best protein powder for muscle gain.
1. Increased absorption of BCAA:
After the glycogen stores in your body are utilised to provide you with the fuel required to exercise, BCAA or the building blocks of protein are used as fuel. BCAA being essential amino acids are not naturally produced by the body but they are got through diet.
Leucine, isoleucine and valine constitute the BCAA and these are vital to both strenuous workouts and endurance athletes. They are popular in reducing fatigue in anaerobic and endurance sports.It helps in making BodyFirst Whey Protein Isolate one of the best proteins for muscle gain.
Adding BCAA around your workout regime reduces muscle loss, aids in muscle recovery and builds up on protein required for muscle synthesis. ProHydrolase® with whey protein enhances the blood levels of leucine by 5% as compared to having whey protein alone; leucine being one of the most critical BCAA.
Leucine regulates blood glucose levels, repair and growth of tissues in the skeletal muscle, bone and skin. Valine also assists in growth and repair of muscle tissue and preserves glucose utilization. Valine in blood level increases by 11% when ProHydrolase® is combined with whey.
2. Other amino acids:
Threonine: It plays an important role in the formation of collagen and elastin (connective tissues). It is involved in the liver functions and maintains the immune system. It also aids in the absorption of other nutrients. The level of threonine in the blood is increased by 6% with ProHydrolase®.
Arginine: It has good nitrogen retention ability, which is required for protein synthesis. It enhances the immune response. It is involved with the release of insulin and stimulates the production of growth hormone. The level of Arginine in the blood increases by 2.5 times (60%) when whey is combined with ProHydrolase® as compared to consuming whey alone.
Methionine: It helps in eliminating toxic wastes and in the regeneration of liver and kidney. The level of methionine in the blood is increased by 6% with ProHydrolase®.
Glutamine: It balances the acid and alkali levels and thus plays a role in reducing lactic acid, which is a by-product of anaerobic exercises. ProHydrolase® helps in increasing the level of glutamine in blood by 28%.
Phenylalanine: It is a precursor of tyrosine that enhances learning, mood, memory and alertness. There is 9% increase in the blood level of phenylalanine by adding ProHydrolase® to whey.

Whey bestows immunological benefits and to strengthen this advantage, probiotics are a part of our product. Probiotics are good bacteria that facilitate good health by maintaining the good microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract. There is abundant research to explain the role of these friendly gut bacteria in overall well-being.In addition, they are known to be immune boosters, adding to our goal of providing you with the best protein powder for men muscle gain (also).
Numerous studies have demonstrated the diverse beneficial effects of different strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus (La-14) validating its use as a probiotic. Lactobacillus acidophilus (La-14) survives the gastrointestinal conditions to render its immunological benefits.
Representatives of the Bifidobacterium genus naturally colonize the human gastrointestinal tract and are important for establishing and maintaining homeostasis of the intestinal ecosystem to allow for normal digestion. Their presence has been associated with beneficial health effects, such as prevention of diarrhoea, amelioration of lactose intolerance, or immunomodulation.
Bifidobacterium spp. has long been considered safe and suitable for human consumption. Bifidobacterium lactis (Bl-04) has been associated with delayed onset of respiratory tract infections by supporting the immune system of the nasal passage. It thus maintains health in active healthy adults. When the respiratory tract is healthy, it helps maintain a good breathing reserve that supports exercise.

The essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine can work wonders for your body when consumed in the right ratio to get the optimum benefit of each individual amino acid. Leucine is like that drop of water that creates a ripple effect. In this case, the water refers to the muscle fibres and the ripples is the process of muscle protein synthesis. Valine keeps you focused and alert while isoleucine is associated with the ability to burn fat. Hence, when taken before or during training sessions BCAA helps reduce fatigue, improves lean muscle and may even help with stepping up your fat metabolism to kickstart fat loss. This product also contains citrulline malate in a 2:1 ratio. Citrulline aids in providing a boost to your workout routine as it acts as a nitric oxide pump and the malate part provides energy to exercise. During exercise, one also loses electrolytes through sweat. It is important to replenish these as they regulate communication throughout the body; thus, sodium chloride and potassium chloride are part of this product.
To prevent any change in taste, lump formation and maintain good quality, the BCAA is microencapsulated and the delivery format is sachet.
There are many forms of creatine available however creatine monohydrate is the most researched form of creatine that is very effective as well. Creatine has been shown to improve performance, boost strength and power when has alongside an endurance training program. Creatine helps in lending energy to muscles for any form of activity. Creatine helps you reach your fitness goals a little faster. Get the accurate dosage of creatine with BodyFirst ® creatine sachets without any hassle.
Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid, which means that normally the body can produce it; however, during any catabolic condition such as stress, injury, burn, medical treatment, post-surgery and high intensity physical activity, the body does not produce sufficient Glutamine. It is in these situations that the demand and supply by the body is not met, making it important to consume this amino acid as a supplement. Glutamine is the main source of energy for the cells of the intestine which play a crucial role in immunity and maintaining the gut barrier. This is the reason that those with gastrointestinal issues are also supplemented with Glutamine. This amino acid also helps in recovery and in countering some of the side effects of medical treatment. Glutamine has an added benefit for those who exercise as it helps with muscle protein synthesis and also improves insulin sensitivity. A dosage of 5 g once a day to begin with is good which can also be stepped up as per one’s health status.

With a modern day hectic lifestyle, a common complaint is the lack of sleep, mood swings and irritability. Much is due to poor quality of our nutritional status as well. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which means that your body cannot produce it and hence one requires to consume it through diet. But when you do not get sufficient quantity of this amino acid from food, it could affect many functions of your daily life. This amino acid is associated with restful sleep, enhancing your mood positively and improving attention. Our product is designed to deliver maximum tryptophan in a form (via Peptide Carrier Technology) that the body can utilize in order to facilitate healthy mind and body.
Multivitamins and Minerals
Required in minute quantities but very critical to normal functioning are vitamins and minerals, which is why they are called micronutrients. Majority of us (with conscious efforts) may still meet our macronutrient (carbohydrates, protein and fat) requirements, but very few even meet half the micronutrient requirements inspite of the fact that they are required in really small amounts. This is mainly due to our food choices, preferences and a high intake of processed foods that have only calories and no significant nutritional value. No wonder then that Vitamin D3 and Vitamin B12 deficiencies are rampant. Aches and pains, indigestion, muscle cramps, hair fall, poor nail quality, weak joints are some common signs and symptoms of certain vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Adding a simple supplement for your requirements is the best way to compensate for a diet deficiency in these trace nutrients. BodyFirst® Multivitamins and Minerals help you achieve just what you require as per the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). ICMR has specified the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) that are standards for daily intake of nutrients. BodyFirst® Multivitamins and Minerals meets 100% of your daily requirements for vitamins, along with minerals and prebiotic, helping you combat any deficiencies before they arise.

Have you heard of antioxidants? Well, they help correct all the nasty free radicals in the body that prevent the body from functioning at its full capacity. These free radicals damage tissues affecting physiological appearance and functionality of cells. Free radicals are generated from the food we eat, environmental factors like UV, our unhealthy lifestyle practices like smoking, drinking alcohol among other factors. Most antioxidants are able to neutralize the effect of these free radicals; however, sometimes after this is achieved the antioxidant may also develop properties of free radicals. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that is known to retain all its properties even after such an exchange, which is why it is called a super antioxidant. It is very affective in protecting respiratory function, cardiac health, eye health, skin health and the results are easily visible within 20 to 25 days of taking this supplement.
Meethi or Fenugreek is an ingredient found in every kitchen but direct consumption of the seeds can cause bloating unless soaked or well roasted. The supplement form of this spice has higher fibre content without the properties that can cause indigestion. Fenugreek consists of soluble and insoluble fibre. Soluble fibre swells with water and contributes to satiety whereas insoluble fibre stays undigested and helps bind cholesterol and excrete it. Fibre also slows digestion, ensuring that your blood sugars do not rise quickly. Try this out before meals and see the beneficial positive results this humble spice brings in your next blood reports.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids are essential fatty acids that cannot be produced in the body and should be got through diet and supplements. Our diets are inadequate in Omega-3 and are surplus in Omega-6 causing a shift in the body’s balance. While recommended ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is 4:1, our diets provide a ratio of almost 16:1, which makes supplementation necessary in order to bridge the gap.
For vegetarians and vegans, flaxseed is a great source of omega and is comparable to the non-veg counterpart as follows:
|Flaxseed Seed Oil||Fish Oil|
ALA (Alpha-linolenic acid) (Omega-3) - 55% of oil.
LA (Linoleic acid) (Omega-6) - 14% of oil. Oleic acid (Omega-9) - 19% of oil.
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) (Omega-3) DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) (Omega-3) Oleic acid (Omega-9)
|Contaminants||No Contamination||Mercury contamination|
Renewable sustainable source
Must be purified of pollutants & then lab tested to rule out dangerous levels of pollutant residues
Dwindling source that is difficult to renew
|Rancidity / Oxidation||ALA is subject to oxidation & rancidity. For this reason, prefer the freshest flaxseed oil you can get.||EPA & DHA are more vulnerable to oxidation than ALA|
Magnesium is involved in 600 plus processes in the body, making it a very important mineral for numerous functions.
How much Magnesium do you need?
|Recommended Dietary Allowances for Daily Magnesium Intake By ICMR, NIN|
|0-6 months||30 mg||30 mg|
|7-12 months||45 mg||45 mg|
|1-3 years||50 mg||50 mg|
|4-6 years||70 mg||70 mg|
|7-9 years||100 mg||100 mg|
|10-12 years||120 mg||120 mg|
|13-15 years||165 mg||165 mg|
|16-17 years||195 mg||195 mg|
|>18 years||340 mg||340 mg|
Some of the common early signs of Magnesium deficiency include decrease in appetite, fatigue and nausea. As the deficiency increases, it can cause tingling, muscle cramps and can even lower calcium and potassium levels as the mineral balance in the body is disturbed.
Magnesium supplementation is especially important if you do not consume sufficient green leafy veges, nuts, pulses or if you experience muscle cramps or aches and pains, it is good to consider Magnesium supplementation.
