MRM Metabolic Whey 100% Premium Whey Protein - French Vanilla - 5 lbs
Metabolic Whey™ – 100% Premium Whey Protein
All Natural Whey™ is an all natural source of protein that was designed to meet the protein needs of all age groups and is number one in digestion, absorption, utilization and retention. This is achieved by using a combination of ultra filtered, low temperature processed whey protein concentrate and cross flow micro-filtrated whey protein isolate. All Natural Whey™ is also highly concentrated in essential amino acids (about 50%), half of which are “branched chain” (muscle preserving) amino acids (BCAAs). In fact, it is the richest natural source of BCAAs.
All Natural Whey™ can benefit those with a wide variety of health concerns ranging from the exceptionally healthy athlete to those trying to support lean muscle mass (e.g. children, teenagers, less active individuals as well as elderly). All Natural Whey™ is also fortified with L-Glutamine, which has been shown clinically to naturally stimulate the release of growth hormones and act as a building block for one of the body’s most important water-soluble antioxidants, glutathione. Whey protein is nutritionally perfect, meaning it contains all of the essential and non-essential amino acids required by the human body.
The addition of Digest-ALL® AP helps break down long and short chain peptides into smaller, more readily absorbable amino acids for maximum digestion and absorption without the worry of wasting ingested protein. Digest-ALL® AP helps the body release more amino acids from ingested protein than the action of digestive enzymes alone. When an athlete takes All Natural Whey™ (enhanced with Digest-ALL® AP), the body can absorb more free amino acids directly into the muscle tissue, which helps to increase muscle size, strength and lean body mass.
Protein is made up of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of your muscles and body. Your stomach begins to digest the proteins with hydrochloric acid that breaks them down into simpler forms (di and tri-peptides) making them easier to be absorbed. When proteins get absorbed into the bloodstream, they are sent to various parts of your body to perform various functions, including repairing and building muscle tissues, supporting your immune system, and transporting oxygen in your red blood cells.*
Having a sufficient amount of protein will put you in a positive nitrogen balance, or an anabolic state. Being in an anabolic state will allow you to build muscle, burn body fat and stay energized. On the contrast, if you have a negative nitrogen balance (inadequate and inconsistent protein intake) you risk being in a catabolic state (muscle breakdown). Your body will actually fuel itself by breaking down your hard earned muscle for energy. Consuming protein in each meal throughout the day will ensure you have an adequate supply of amino acids without consuming a surplus of calories. Further, you will be in an anabolic state (protein synthesis) all day long.
Protein needs differ from person to person. Individuals that exercise need more daily protein intake than those that do not exercise. The intensity of the exercise also dictates how much protein one needs to build lean muscle. Individuals with more lean muscle are known to have a faster metabolism, burn body fat more efficiently, have healthier bones and balance blood sugar and cravings extremely well.
