HiveFit 100% Whey Isolate Proteins Q&A

HiveFit 100% Whey Isolate Proteins

How are we different? Most protein powders in the market will give you far less protein than advertised because of amino spiking (adding amino acids to raise the overall protein content of the powder when tested without disclosing on the label. Very unethical). Other companies may use fillers and/or thickening agents to make up some of the bulk of the protein, so when you are buying an Isolate protein, not only do you run the risk of taking in the above fillers, but also being blended with inferior sources of protein as listed.

Being 100% whey isolate makes the lactose content almost un-existent making it safe to those that are lactose intolerant. Our whey proteins do not contain antibiotics or hormones and we certainly do not amino spike.  Whey protein helps boost glutathione levels by increasing its precursors such cysteine, immunoglobulins and other active peptides. Glutathione is the body’s most potent antioxidant and supplementing with a high quality whey protein is the most effective way to raise it at the cellular level.

A product that says Whey Isolate on the label doesn't mean is only Whey Isolate, all it means by law is that 51% of what is in that container is Whey Isolate. You may be ask what makes the other 49%? Inferior sources of protein (if you are lucky) such as concentrates or casein or most likely fillers, gums, thickening agents, amino acids, etc. which may not be listed on the label. Sad and unethical, but some companies will take advantage of how the law is written to make money. At HiveFit we pride ourselves with having 100% transparency on our label and list even the most minimal ingredients used as well as its amounts.

 

Q&A

  • Is your protein un-denatured? No, all whey protein powder in the United States needs to be pasteurized by law even at the lowest temperature but it will still cause some fractions of the protein to be altered, but that doesn’t mean the protein is just empty calories, you still get all of the benefits shown in studies as well as what HiveFit lists on the label.
  • Is your protein spiked with anything? No, we don’t believe in cutting corners and our mission is to deliver the best quality products to the consumer. Protein spiking or also known as amino spiking not only would lower the quality and effectiveness of the product, but would also be unethical.
  • Does your whey protein have all of its naturally occurring bioactive peptides? Yes, HiveFit does not strip out or add any bioactive peptides, you get what nature has originally intended to give you.
  • Is your protein coming from a grass-fed and non-GMO source? Yes, although not a critical step in whey isolate protein since the fat content is extremely low, HiveFit feels that every bit can make a difference and when striving to make the healthiest protein in the market, HiveFit won’t cut any corners to save money as little or insignificant as it may be. We pride ourselves in bringing our protein from Ireland, which next to New Zealand has the highest standards in whey sources in the world.
  • Does your protein have any added hormones or antibiotics? No, HiveFit whey protein is antibiotic, rBGH and rBST free.
  • Why does your whey protein not contain any hydrolyzed protein? 100% hydrolyzed protein in inedible, when breaking down the protein to such degree, this mimics what your stomach acid would do after it has digested a protein source completely. If we did that, the protein wouldn’t stay together in any form.

HiveFit Probiotic Digestive Support Q&A

Probiotic Digestive Support

  • Do your probiotics need to be refrigerated? Refrigeration maintains and extends the potency or live cell count of the beneficial bacteria. Although probiotics have a natural die-off rate over time, the cooler air in the refrigerator will reduce the die-off rate making them hold their potency much longer.
  • Are the probiotics shelf-stable? Yes, partially. It is perfectly fine to have the probiotics outside before opening. Ideally at room temperature with no direct sunlight. Once the probiotics are opened then refrigeration is highly suggested but not required. We use amber bottles which helps lower the moisture as well as the oxygen transfer rate in and out of the bottle.

HiveFit Concentrated Omega-3 Q&A

Concentrated Omega-3

  • What part of the fish is used to obtain the omega-3? The entire body is used.
  • Do your fish oil contain high amounts of heavy metals? Our fish oil is tested for heavy metal contamination to provide safe products to our customers. Customers may receive a recent analysis upon request.
  • Is there any iodine in the fish oil? The iodine content of our fish is less than 1ppm, however tests to detect iodine are not very sensitive and vary from time to time. Regardless, the typical amount is extremely low.
  • Is there any MSG in the gelatin capsule? No MSG is added to any of our products, however MSG may occur naturally in products containing glutamine.

HiveFit Stimul-Fat Q&A

Stimul-Fat

How are we different from other "fat burners"? Let's start by saying there are no products in the market that actually burn fat without a proper diet and exercise plan. For companies to create a product and claim that it burns fat is unethical, this is why we call our product Stimul-Fat. Our product will stimulate all the mechanisms available to burn fat when being under a proper nutrition plan. Also, our product will make dieting much easier by reducing cravings and keeping you in a better mood during a caloric deficit. We don't do this with caffeine which stimulates the central nervous system, we do it with natural herbs and amino acids that actually promote well-being.

 

Q&A

  • How come your fat burner does not contain CLA or L-Carnitine? As studies have shown, for such ingredients to be effective, the clinical doses are extremely high, where you would have to consume 10-15 capsules per day. We only use full clinical dosed ingredients with some being able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
  • How much fat can I burn supplementing with Stimul-Fat? No “fat burners” in the market actually burn fat. All a fat burner can do is stimulate the body to burn more fat under the right environment by opening up and facilitating all lipolysis pathways. Stimul-Fat does that in the healthies and most effective way possible with its cutting edge formula, allowing maximum fat loss with proper exercise and nutrition.
  • When is the best time to take Stimul-Fat? Ideally before exercise or any time energy is low. Stimul-Fat ingredients are designed not only to facilitate fat-loss via lipolysis, but also to enhance your mood, reduce your cravings and anxiety induced eating, as well as boost energy by stimulating the central nervous system so taking it away from bedtime is recommended.
  • How much Stimul-Fat should I consume per day? Ideally 1 serving per day but those in a more regimented diet could do 2 servings per day.

HiveFit Pre-Training Formula Q&A

Pre-Training Formula

How are we different from other pre-workouts? We don't use excessive caffeine to stimulate the central nervous system. Excessive caffeine leads to an increase in arterial vasoconstriction by blocking adenosine receptors which causes a blood flow reduction. By avoiding this you will be able to maintain a pump longer and keep lower cortisol levels during training.

We are one of the few companies in the market that stay away from artificial colorants, flavors and sweeteners since it has been proven that using them is harmful to your body and have long term side effects. These healthier companies fail in making an effective pre-training formula, making ours the best of both worlds. Our product costs more to make because of this, but we pride ourselves in offering a competitive price regardless of our cost. 

 

Q&A

  • I’ve never taken a pre-workout but need a little stimulation while training, how should I assess my tolerance? Everyone needs a boost on certain days, especially when wanting to maximize your results during training. I would suggest ½ serving to begin and then ¾ of a serving if you feel the need to increase it. If your body responds perfectly fine, then you may go to a full serving.
  • Is the pre-workout going to make me feel jittery or tingly? This pre-workout has the caffeine equivalent of 2 cups of coffee so if you are not used to such stimulation it may at first, but we suggest assessing your tolerance as specified above. When it comes to supplements making you tingly the main ingredient that does it is the beta alanine. We only have 1000mg in our formula vs other companies that have over 3000mg where tingling is guaranteed to happen. With such a small dose the tingling may not be noticeable to most individuals.
  • Will this pre-workout increase my strength? Strength, muscle, and fat manipulation comes from training and a proper nutrition. This pre-workout will ensure you are maximizing your training time by keeping you focused, enhancing blood flow to the muscle cells, and giving you better pumps and endurance so you can tear down the muscle faster and for longer periods of time. This is your get-out-of-bed and go train formula.
  • How much pre-workout should I consume per day? As with our fat burner, I would not consume more than a couple of servings per day. Too much caffeine can damage your adrenals, we have added a couple of compounds to nourish your adrenals and keep cortisol lower, but we still recommend no more than 2 servings per day for those with double training sessions or extreme dieters.

HiveFit BCAA Formula Q&A

BCAA Formula

How are we different? When creating a BCAA, most companies focus on maximizing recovery time with the added branched chain amino acid supplementation. Hardly ever their doses are high enough for the supplement to do much, if anything. Where most companies fail is not activating mTOR which does require more ingredients and certain ratios in order for this synergy to happen efficiently. However, when activating this enzyme, it integrates both intra and extra cellular signals which regulates cell proliferation and survival, cell metabolism and cell growth making the most anabolic environment possible in the human body. This is why we pride ourselves with the highest quality BCAA in the market.

 

Q&A

    • When is the best time to take the BCAA? You may take a serving during training as it will help activate mTOR. You may also take BCAAs during the day, especially in those days where soreness is higher.
    • What are BCAAs for? Branched Chain Amino Acids, these are the building blocks of protein. Not only do we supply enough amino acids to help rebuild the teared down muscles but also to maximize the recovering process where hypertrophy takes place. We also added different compounds to help activate mTOR so not only will it help you build muscle and recover, but it will do it at the physiologically fastest rate possible.
    • How is your BCAA different from all the other companies? We focused mainly on activating mTOR and its delivery system. We have a higher amount of Leucine which is required for this activation and we supply the other ingredients necessary to transport it into the right places and maximize its capabilities, making it the most effective muscle cell proliferation blend in the market. This will also help prevent any muscle loss during extreme dieting.
