Advanced Time Released Protein Matrix
Low Fat! Low Carb!
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 requirement, 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.
This 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 NitroPro7ª; our unique protein blend, consisting of Premium Ultra and Microfiltrated Whey Protein Concentrate, undenatured milk protein concentrate, micellar casein, udenatured 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.
Then the mid-release proteins take over. Egg protein is considered one of the most perfect sources of protein because it is complete in essential amino acids, branch chain amino acids and glutamic acid. The body completely and easily absorbs it.
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 process 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 its hardest to recover! Protein Sensation 81 is low in fat and carbs, and mixes instantly.
