A Scientific Approach To Mastering Muscle Power Output
The need for consuming protein to optimize muscle growth and repair has been long documented. Research shows that in order to maximize your workout, you must consume proteins that stimulate muscle protein synthesis (the making of muscle). You must also consume proteins that protect and keep your muscle (anti-catabolic). Amino acids, especially branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and L-glutamine, are the most powerful nutrients of their kind with which to stimulate muscle protein synthesis and inhibit muscle protein catabolism. Glutamine makes up approximately 60% of skeletal muscle protein while the branched-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) constitute approximately 35% of skeletal muscle protein. An increasing amount of literature suggests that these amino acids play the most significant role in stimulating protein synthesis and protecting your body from muscle protein breakdown.
Research also shows that the digesting rate of protein is a critical regulator of muscle growth and muscle protection and that different proteins are better equipped at doing each. It is this combination that is highly coveted in order to achieve peak muscle power output. The major proteins in which to achieve different digestion rates as well as supply these most powerful amino acids to muscle tissue are the milk proteins, whey and casein which differ in very important aspects.
# 1 Rated Liquid Protein Shot
THE NITRO-PEAK 50x ADVANTAGE: To be a great athlete you need to be able to sustain high forces (strength) at high speeds. The combination (speed X strength) equals power. Bigger muscles can generate more power because they are capable of producing more force at a given speed. To make your muscles bigger, you must stimulate muscle protein synthesis. Amino acids, especially branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and L-glutamine, are the most powerful nutrients of their kind with which to stimulate muscle protein synthesis and inhibit muscle protein catabolism (breakdown). Every delicious serving of NITRO-PEAK 50x promotes and protects bigger muscles with 50 grams of Protein, 5.6g of Glutamine and 3.7g BCAAs. Scientists have found these amino acids to be superior for building muscle size and strength. Nitro-Peak 50x also contains 5g of super hydrating glycerol. When taken with additional water, glycerol has been shown to help hydrate muscle cells, enhance temperature regulation and improve overall performance. Each serving contains 0 g of fat and 0 g of sugar. The end result is that NITRO-PEAK 50x protects and enhances your ability to produce “speed X strength”, or power. And when it comes to performance, power is what defines a great athlete.
Ingredient Blend # 1
Whey Protein Isolate and Joint Restoration Matrix [containing Pro-Connect™ (Connective Tissue and Cartilage Repair Matrix (Low Molecular Weight Hydrolyzed Collagen Isolate)) and Whey Protein Isolate with naturally occurring critical bioactive compounds including di, tri and oligo peptides, beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, serum albumin and immunoglobulins] and Taurine.
Whey Protein Stimulates Protein Synthesis
Whey proteins have be shown to be far superior for muscle growth as they are rapidly absorbed, making them exceptionally valuable after a workout. They are emptied from the stomach quickly, resulting in a rapid and large increase in amino acids in the blood. It is this increase of amino acids that makes whey protein so unique as it sends signals to your body to increase the manufacturing of muscle tissue. While whey protein is superior in this regard, it is important to understand that this positive effect leads to a short and limited supply of aminos and does not stop long term muscle protein loss.
Pro-Connect™ Joint Restoration Matrix (Connective Tissue and Cartilage Repair Matrix)
Contains the main protein of connective tissue found in joints. It constitutes 1% to 2% of muscle tissue, and accounts for 6% of the weight of strong, tendinous muscles. Athletes, bodybuilders and power lifters often put additional strain on their joints leading to wear and tear, pain and ultimately injury. Collagen acts as a natural shock-absorber and acts as the glue that holds the components of our cartilage together.
Ingredient Blend # 2
Glycerol H2O™: Hydrophilic Cellular Hydration Complex (containing positively charged Carbon Filtered Water and Glycerol with naturally occurring polymeric compounds).
Glycerol is a naturally occurring metabolite that is rapidly absorbed and distributed throughout the body.
It has been shown to help allow your body to temporarily retain extra fluid. This effect can help increase muscle cell size as well as help the effects of thermoregulation (to help prevent overheating which leads to muscle failure). Exercise can cause excessive fluid losses and glycerol may help enhance hydration.
Ingredient Blend # 3
Electrolyte ATP™: Intracellular and Extracellular Fluid Balance and ATP Precursor
Complex [containing Phosphorous (as phosphoric acid), Potassium (as potassium sorbate) and Sodium (as sodium benzoate)].
Electrolytes have been shown to improve athletic endurance and power in several ways. They have been shown to speed the release of oxygen from hemoglobin to muscles and help to reform ATP and increase power. They have been shown to increase cardiac muscle contractility-response to exercise and stimulates glycolysis and power metabolism.
They are essential for a wide variety of metabolic and physiologic processes in the human body and critical for athletes as they are involved in muscle contraction, normal hearth rhythm, nerve impulse conduction, oxygen transport, antioxidant activity, acid base balance of the blood etc. Because many of these processes are accelerated during exercise, an adequate amount of minerals are necessary for optimal functioning. Athletes should obtain an adequate amount of all minerals, for deficiency may adversely affect performance.
