The Protein of the Future : Part 2

Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Supplement Articles, Protein, BCAA | Feb 21, 2007

The branched-chained amino acids, lysine, phenylalanine, methionine, and tryptophan are essential to tissue growth and repair; however, they can't be manufactured by the body and therefore must be obtained through dietary consumption. They promote the healing of bones, skin, and muscle. They also regulate blood sugar levels, so they must be taken in a balance to insure proper regulation.

Phenylalanine is often used to treat depression. It is a precursor to the neurotransmitter, norepinephrine and aids in memory. It should be avoided by phenylketonurics (PKU)

The body uses methionine to derive the brain food, choline. It also aids in digestion, as well as serving as a fat burner. It can interact with other substances to detoxify harmful agents, and is essential for the production of cysteine and taurine.

L-Tryptophan acts as an sleep aid, as demonstrated by the drowsy feeling we sometimes experience after Thanksgiving dinner (turkey meat has a relatively high amount of tryptophan.). It is also necessary for the production of niacin and is used by the body to make the neurotransmitter, serotonin.

Clinical trials are currently underway in the United States at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Bay Pines, Florida under the direction of Martin Robson, M.D.

These observations have their origin in the fact that whey protein contains high levels of amino acids, which may be important to wound healing. These amino acid include arginine, glycine, and particularly the branch-chained amino acids (BCAA) leucine, isoleucine and valine, which are essential to promote healing of bones, skin, and muscle tissues. Another amio acid, proline, aids in the production of collagen, heals cartilage and strengthens joints, tendons and cardiac muscle.

In the age where so many nutritional supplements are highly developed with the most technological advancements, the question of quality and excellence is quite often an issue. Because of the increasingly competetive market, ProtaQuest has taken the well-needed lead in quality and price.

Seeing the huge demand for an economically priced superior Whey Protein, ProtaQuest has been able to mass-produce one of the finest Protein powders available today. Knowing the importance of precise protein intake, ProtaQuest has gathered all of the most crucial factors that athletes need in their daily protein supplementation, and put it all into one excellent product.

ProtaQuest has the perfect balance of the highest quality protein (with naturally occurring, high glutamine content), high branched chain amino acid content, and high protein fractions like lactoferrin, lactoperooxidase and glycomacropeptides. And in addition to this exceptional muscle building formula, Precision Whey Protein also provides a complete amino acid profile with advanced solubility and digestibility. All this processed by micro and ultrafiltration for the most complete and undenatured protein.

And to make your decision for the best protein product easier, ProtaQuest Precision Whey Protein is available in the three most requested flavors, Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry. And understanding the importance of exceptional flavor, Protaquest has taken great strides to assure the best tasting protein powder available. So, given the extensive scientific research and the consumer demands, ProtaQuest has covered all needs of the athlete's demands for a superior product ranging from quality to price.
