Why we rated Repp our #3*
REPP Sports is another one of the newer companies on this list, so we were curious to see how their protein powder would hold up against some of the others. With a combo of whey concentrate and whey isolate and some of the most unique flavors on the market, they already are making an impression. Let’s see how they stack up against the competition…
REPP Sports Whey+ is unique because it contains both whey concentrate and whey isolate. Whey concentrate is great for instant nutrition for sore muscles after a workout, while whey isolate is a sustained-release form of nutrition that sticks around during the muscle regeneration phase of workout recovery. REPP protein powder contains 21 grams of protein and 5 grams of BCAAs per serving, which is somewhat low for the average protein powder, and is on the more expensive side. They claim that all of their ingredients are naturally-occurring and are very easy on the stomach.
While their protein powder may be easily digestible and not stressful on your GI tract, there are some notable ingredients that should be mentioned. Soy is one of the most prolific ingredients in food and is also a major allergen that has the potential to wreak havoc on the body. It should generally be avoided by everyone, but by men especially, as it contains phytoestrogens that mimic the body’s natural estrogen hormones. Heightened estrogen levels in men have been linked to erectile dysfunction, thyroid damage, and loss of lean muscle mass.
Sucralose, which has been linked to a higher risk of cancer (study link: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27078173/) is also another ingredient present in this protein powder. Though more studies are needed to confirm this, this is something to keep in mind. Milk ingredients are also used, so it is not suitable for those that are vegan, have a dairy allergy, or just want to avoid dairy altogether.
We all know that one of the biggest problems in the protein powder world is the lack of original flavors available. We think there’s only so many times you can pick up a variation of chocolate and be satisfied. REPP Sports Whey+ really seemed to have thought about that when creating their powder. With flavors like Funnel Cake and Tropic-O’s, we were pleasantly surprised, because they tasted quite good, considering how unique they were. While the flavors were good, they could have mixed better with water, milk, or in a shake; they retained a bit of that chalky, gritty texture that is a hallmark problem with protein powder.
Our experience with REPP Sports customer service was amazing. We’ve noticed that the newer, up-and-coming businesses have placed a large emphasis on the customer experience. They were super helpful when we called them with a few questions about their products. Despite the fact that customer service was very helpful in answering questions and assuring the quality of our protein powder, REPP Sports offers even more.
REPP emphasizes community among its customers, so they encourage you to join their Facebook page to connect with the company itself, as well as other customers. REPP products, as well as all things health and fitness, can be discussed in their group. There are some pretty good fitness memes on there too, if you ask us.
REPP Sports Whey+ protein powder comes in some really great flavors that shake up the monotony of typical protein powder flavors, though it could be better in texture. Its combination of whey concentrate and whey isolate makes it great for a large variety of activities and more forgiving about when in the day you can use it. These factors are great, but this powder does contain less than the industry standard of protein and BCAAs per serving, and does have soy and sucralose in their ingredients.
