The importance of protein in nutrition and health cannot be
overemphasized. Proteins are essential nutritionally because of
their constituent amino acids, which the body must have in order
to synthesize its own variety of proteins and
nitrogen-containing molecules that make life possible. 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. Because of this, many of us
use a protein powder. Whey protein has been the most popular
choice because it is inexpensive and is absorbed fast. However,
this strength is also its weakness. Whey is absorbed so fast
that it's fully digested in approximately 90 minutes. Your body
can only use so much of the amino acid surge that follows the
ingestion of whey. Because you're getting a big intake of amino
acids immediately there maybe no amino acids left over to
nourish your muscles and keep you in positive nitrogen balance
in the hours leading up to your next meal.
Which means that
after your muscles get their initial fill of amino acids, you
could go catabolic in the hours that follow. What you need then,
is a protein source that is broken down and absorbed slowly.
This type of protein source should provide amino acids to your
muscles for hours, so that your muscles don't starve in between
meals. To get around this problem Ultimate Nutrition developed a
time-release protein to fuel your muscles with amino acids.
A protein blend consisting of multiple sources of protein is
superior to any single-protein source, including whey, for
sustained time-release nutritional support. Protein Sensation 81
is made with NitroPro7; Our unique protein blend, consisting of
Premium Ultra and Microfiltrated Whey Protein Concentrate,
Undenatured Milk Protein Concentrate, Micellar Casein,
Undenatured Egg White Albumen, Pure Bioactive Whey Protein
Isolate, Partially Hydrolyzed Whey Protein, and Calcium
Caseinate. Whey proteins such as hydrolyzate, isolate and
concentrate give your body a surge of amino acids immediately
after you consume them. These proteins stimulate protein
synthesis and make them great for lean muscle growth.
the mid-release proteins take over. Egg protein is considered
the most perfect source of protein because it is complete in
essential amino acids, branch chain amino acids and glutamic
acid. It is completely and easily absorbed by the body. Protein
such as micellar casein, calcium caseinate and milk protein
concentrate take much longer to digest and can be considered the
extended release proteins, lasting up to 6 hours, thereby giving
the body more time to fully digest and absorb those nutrients.
This makes these milk proteins ideal for use as an evening
protein shake also. Milk Protein concentrate is made up of both
whey protein and casein. It offers the best of both worlds.
Casein is much more effective at preventing muscle wasting than
whey. Calcium caseinate also contains over three times the
levels of calcium as whey, making it a valuable component to
boost calcium levels in your body.
A more complete source of
protein means you'll enjoy faster lean muscle gains and quicker
recovery after workouts. Time-Release means continuous protein
nourishment of your muscles throughout the day and also before
bedtime when your body works it's hardest to recover!Protein
