Protein is probably the most important supplement for all
athletes, but it is especially indispensable for those involved
in long-term, high intensity endurance training. It is the fuel
for the build-up, mass and toning of the muscle. In fact,
protein is essential for growth and development. The proteins
that make up the human body are not obtained directly from the
diet; rather, dietary protein is broken down into its
constituent parts known as amino acids, which are the basic
building blocks of life. That means that it is the amino acids,
and not protein per se, which are essential nutrients.
the 20 amino acids that the body needs to make protein, eleven
are designated as nonessential amino acids, because they can be
produced by the human body from other amino acids and do not
need to be obtained from the diet. The remaining nine amino
acids cannot be synthesized by the body and are, therefore,
called essential amino acids. These amino acids must be obtained
by degradation of the dietary protein. All of these essential
amino acids must be present in the body in order for it to build
and repair muscle.
The manner in which the body uses protein
during and after exercise is quite different from the way it
utilizes carbohydrates or fat for energy. In the hours after
exercise, the body begins to build the so-called structural
proteins from amino acids for muscle repair and growth, and
remodeling the tissues needed for performance. This is one of
the reasons that athletes should pay particular heed to
nutrition for complete recovery fast and make it an integral
part of their workout regimen.
Exercise duration and
intensity are important factors in determining which of the
nutrient fuels are burned to gain energy. An exercise regimen
comprising of low- to moderate intensity of long duration
necessitates large quantities of fuel --oftentimes more than
carbohydrates and fat reserves in the body can provide.
Therefore, the body begins to utilize structural and functional
proteins during long-term aerobic exercise. In contrast,
high-intensity exercise of short duration mostly uses glucose,
which spares the protein reservoir of the body.
To meet the
needs of athletes, Ultimate Nutrition has designed Prostar Whey
all the essential and nonessential amino acids to build the
muscle after intense exercise of both short and long duration.
It is a customized blend of all the nutrients, including immune
enhancing factors from whey protein by a specialized process.
Since exercise can take a toll on the immune system, Prostar
Whey is the nutritional supplement of choice for those who lead
an active lifestyle. Prostar Whey is not just for the athlete
however. It supports the msucle maintenance, buildup and toning
among individuals who are merely "weekend warriors."
Furthermore, it provides wholesome support for compromised or
wasting muscle due to advancing years. Ultimate Nutrition's
Prostar Whey is, indeed, the nutrition for the champions!
