Universal Animal Whey – Whey Protein Isolate Powder to Support Muscle Building
Basic. To some this means simple, trivial and common... Nothing to get excited about. To others, the basics are absolutely vital. They are essential and critical. You simply can't live without them. In the inner circle of the world's most dedicated weightlifters and bodybuilders, protein is one such necessary basic. It is the primary fuel for new muscle growth. And as such, it is placed at a premium.
Chicken, steak, tuna and eggs. Meals featuring these popular whole food protein sources are consumed, quite literally around the clock, by serious trainers, each striving to hit a daily quota in protein grams that they've deemed necessary to reach their muscle-building goals. It takes pre-planning and hours of food prep. And that can also mean a lot of chewing. It seemed there had to be a reasonable means of helping to simplify that process, ensuring die-hard trainers could hit their protein number every day.
The rise and emergence of the supplement industry brought supplemental protein powder into the mainstream, turning average protein supps from chalky cans of undrinkable sludge into delicious fitness smoothies. Shaker cups were everywhere. Protein powder was in seemingly every household. But as the category exploded, quality diminished in the pursuit of better taste and wider margins.
As a result, Animal—one of the most respected brands in the trenches of the iron sports, never truly entered the protein game in earnest. If it couldn't be done right, we wouldn't do it at all. Three proven decades in the gym bags of the hardest lifters on the planet, and no protein power. Until now.
The most serious brand in bodybuilding delivers a product its consumers have been demanding for years. Animal WHEY. A protein blend heavy in cross-flow micro-filtered whey protein isolate, complemented by ultra-filtrated whey protein concentrate and fortified with the proven and highly-touted digestive enzymes papain and bromelain, Animal WHEY lives to the lofty standard strived for and set by Animal, making it worthy to bear the unmistakable Iconic imagery on its front label.
An impressive Supplement Facts box wouldn't be enough, however, it would have to live up to hype in the field — on the weight room floors of the most hardcore gyms in the world... In the shaker cups and blenders of the most committed lifters out there. It would have to mix with ease and taste great, making drinking multiple shakes per day a pleasure, not a painful chore. Because let's face it, if your protein powder tastes terrible, it is less likely you will drink it as much as needed to hit your daily macronutrient goals. Unacceptable. To be worthy of the Animal aegis, it would have to taste as good as it worked. And once again, in this regard, Animal WHEY is a triumph.
The right proteins, easily digested. Tasting great and going down easy. That's the standard. And a towering standard at that. But these are the sorts of goals to which we aspire. To be uncompromising in our efforts to supply the most demanding weightlifters and bodybuilders on the planet with the right tool for the job. Every time. And it is with this superlative ideal in mind that we proudly present Animal WHEY. The most essential of the bodybuilding supplement basics. Finally done right.

Animal Pak - The True Original! The Original Since 1983!
When it comes to nutrition, it all starts here with Animal Pak. It's your nutritional foundation. It's your nutritional insurance. Start with the Pak as your basic starter supplement and add the other Animal products around it.
“ I have been lifting weights for fifteen years, and most of that time was spent training as a natural powerlifter. I've experimented with hundreds of supplements over the years, some good, some worthless. But the best supplement I've ever come across is Animal Pak. I've been using Animal Pak since I started as a powerlifter. It was and still is the foundation upon which I rest my nutritional regimen. Fancy supplements come and go, but the basics stay the same. The Animal Pak is king.”
- M. Palmieri, Las Vegas
Since August 8, 1983, Animal Pak has been helping competitive bodybuilders get the most out of their freakish training routines by providing all the nutrition they need, plus some they didn't know they needed. For 25 straight years, people like you have made Animal Pak the #1 selling training "pack" in the world. In fact, more competitive bodybuilders have cut their teeth on the Animal Pak than any other bodybuilding supplement in history. Why? Simple. Animal Pak gets the job done. It works. First time. Every time. Animal Pak has stood the test of time.
See, nature, in all her ingenuity, has designed the human body as the ultimate training machine. Since the dawn of mankind, our bodies have changed very little. And when it comes to growing our muscles in a freakish way, we still need the right combination and mega-doses of essential amino acids, carbs, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Only Animal Pak has everything you need.
OK, so you think your regular multi is going to cut it? Get real, Jack. You want massive size and mega-strength and only Animal Pak can deliver. Each Animal Pak starts with mega-doses of necessary vitamins and minerals. Yeah, vitamins and minerals. Vitamins (organic) and minerals (inorganic) are pharmacological agents and catalysts. They can exert significant ergogenic/anabolic benefits and function as the spark plugs for activating all the necessary chemical reactions which make training and building muscle possible.
If you're training or dieting hard for a contest, the first thing that happens when you don't take the Animal Pak is that nutritional gaps begin to form. Why should you care? Because over time, these deficiencies continue to grow. Eventually, your body will stop functioning at its optimum level. In other words, you hit the wall, your development reaches a plateau. In fact, even if only one key nutrient is missing from your diet, your body could shut down the anabolic drive needed to build muscle so that it can support more critical metabolic processes. When this happens, you stop growing.
Research has proven that strength athletes such as bodybuilders and powerlifters, due to the intensity and frequency of their training programs, have higher nutritional requirements than regular athletes. Studies have shown that these unique needs are greatly increased for bodybuilders who regularly compete and need to diet down. During calorie-restricted diets (diets which tend to be repetitive and monotonous, e.g., rice and chicken), the potential for nutritional deficiencies increase dramatically.
More alarming is the fact that championship-caliber bodybuilders, even when supplementing with a regular multivitamin, were still experiencing significant nutritional deficiencies. A basic multivitamin supplement won't be enough. Competitive bodybuilders know that a superior multivitamin is the first line of defense. This fact is confirmed by studies which have revealed that 100% of Olympic weightlifters and over 90% of competitive male and female bodybuilders use a vitamin/mineral supplement like Animal Pak.
These nutritional gaps not only affect your mineral and size, but they begin to impact the way your other supplements work. For many of today's supplements to work efficiently, your body needs to be running on all cylinders. Nutritional gaps mean that your supplements may be rendered ineffective. For example, many supplements (e.g., prohormones) rely on enzymes and other substances in your body to "activate" them. Poor nutrition means poor conversion and activation of expensive supplements. Animal Pak is your insurance policy to prevent this from happening.
One other reason to take Animal Pak daily: drug-induced nutrient depletion. Pharmaceutical drug use can lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Relying on "science” or “gear” to get you huge can obviously exacerbate this problem. Even common pharmaceuticals and OTC's such as aspirin, ibuprofen, antidepressants, and cholesterol-lowering drugs can deplete your body of folic acid, iron, potassium, and important vitamins. If you use drugs of any kind, this is another reason to supplement with Animal Pak.
With Animal Pak, you get plenty of everything you need. And a few extras. Animal Pak features performance optimizers such as pyridoxine alpha-ketoglutarate (PAK), carnitine, lipotropics, L-arginine, eleuthero, and the like. In every pack, you get a vast arsenal of over 60 key ingredients that are delivered in the right amounts at the right time, every time. Each of the 11 tablets included in each pak has been specifically formulated to deliver the goods.
Consider the Animal Pak as the cast iron skillet of your supplement program, your body's first line of defense. If you train with weights, then you absolutely need to train with the Animal Pak. Remember, while most supplements have come and gone, precious few have stood the test of time. When you're ready for the best, step up to the most trusted name in serious bodybuilding nutrition: Animal Pak. What IFBB pros and Mr. Olympia competitors have used since '83.
