Whey protein is a pure protein with superb bio-available calcium, and is digested easily.
100 % Whey Protein by EAS supports optimal muscle growth and peak performance. Each serving provides you with 23 grams of protein per serving and that is 46 % of the daily recommended amount.
Whey protein is a pure protein with superb bio-available Calcium, and is digested easily. It has a high biological value because it has outstanding metabolic efficiency. It also has the uppermost concentrations of BCAA (branched amino acids) than any of the other natural occurring proteins in food. Research has proven that between 10 to 15% of the Energy required while training can be supplied through the oxidation of amino acids, particularly BCAA.
Whey and BCAA
When we exercise the synthesis of the whole body protein decreases and proteins are changed into free amino acids. The skeletal muscles use the BCAAs in the blood and break it down to form glucose, which provide the energy needed during training. This makes BCAAs exclusive among other amino acids in their capability to be a source of energy while doing endurance training and exercise. The BCAAs are also broken down by the working skeletal muscles, releasing nitrogen and can decrease the breakdown of muscle protein while training. This allows for increased and more intense training. BCAAs also assist to shorten the recovery time after intense training.
For people who need to maintain their muscle mass it is suggested that they take whey protein, which is naturally high in BCAA, before and after training.
Sport and Energy
During short term and medium term training the body obtains its energy mainly from carbohydrates broken down to glycogen. As the training period lengthens and becomes more intensive lipids replace the glycogen.
The results of a number of studies have shown an increase in the turnover of protein in the body is up 20% while doing aerobic exercise.
Whey protein is the best type of protein to give your body the most available protein. Of all the protein types whey protein maximizes your body's utilization of this vital energy source.
The precise amount of protein a person needs is totally dependent on their lifestyle, amount ,duration, and type of physical activity, their age, health, gender, etc. As a guideline the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance, to maintain overall health and fitness, is set at 0.8 grams of protein per kg per day. Normally this is enough for an inactive lifestyle, as the amount of exercise increases, so does the need for more protein. The aim is to take enough protein to maintain the nitrogen balance in the body. If the body has a positive nitrogen balance it increases muscle mass.
Studies have worked out that the nutritional needs for power or strength athletes, such as bodybuilders, wrestling, weigh lifting to maintain positive nitrogen balances could be as much as 2 g/kg/day.
One of the benefits of taking the 100 % Whey Protein by EAS is that whey has Glutamine, which helps to replenish muscle glycogen and reduces a decline of the immune system which can be a result of over training.
