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.
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. High-intensity exercise of short duration mostly uses carbohydrates, a process that spares the protein reservoir of the body. Roughly half of dietary carbohydrate is supplied as simple sugars such as fructose.
To meet the needs of athletes involved in long-term as well as short-duration high-intensity exercises, Ultimate Nutrition has designed Whey Supreme with all the essential and nonessential amino acids to build the muscles after intense exercise of both short and long duration. Carbohydrate intake and subsequent glycogen concentrations are a major determinant of endurance capacity.
Whey Supreme is a customized blend of protein and carbohydrates, including immune-enhancing factors from whey protein by a specialized process.
