What is in Protein 7+ unique 7 phase matrix?
The unique blend in Protein 7+ contains various protein sources including: free form amino acids, whey from milk, collagen from beef, and egg from chicken.
This blend immediately starts to absorb and will then digest and deliver amino acids over a potential six hour period.
What are Free-form EAA?
Free-form essential amino acids are separated amino acids that’s are not linked together in a string form. This allows the individual amino acids to be instantly absorbed and used by the body, without digestion.
This is ideal for post workout to “kick-start” the recovery process of protein synthesis and repair.
What is Collagen?
Collagen consists of amino acids bound together known as a collagen helix. It will assist in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and skin. Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular matrix in the various connective tissues in the body.
What is Hydrolysed Isolate?
Hydrolysed isolate is whey that has gone through the hydrolysis process. Hydro – meaning water, and lysis – meaning to remove or unbind. Hydrolysed Isolate has had water added into the processing, allowing for the protein to be metabolized much easier. The amino bonds have been partially broken down allowing it to be absorbed more rapidly.
What is Whey Isolate?
Whey isolate is one of the leanest protein powders, comprising of over 90% protein. It is ALMOST lactose free, carbohydrate free, fat free, and cholesterol free.
What is Egg Albumin?
Egg albumin is comprised of several proteins, each having a specific purpose. These proteins aid in the digestive process, bind cells, boost the immune system, and perform a combination of these tasks.
What is Whey Concentrate?
Whey concentrate contains more fat and carbs than whey isolate, but that adds beneficial nutrients like conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs). CLAs can help to decrease body fat. It also has a longer digestive time.
What is Micellar Casein?
Micellar Casein is created when casein protein is separated from whey, fat and lactose in milk. This is the slowest digesting form of casein as it forms micelles when added to fluid. The micelles take a long time to digest and therefore Micellar Casein is digested slower than plain casein.
How much protein per meal?
The long held belief is that the amount of protein your muscles are capable of absorbing in a meal is about 25 to 35 grams. But a recent study added a problem to this – the maximum rate whey protein can be absorbed is about 8-12g per hour.
Can a liquid protein source last 2 hours?
With the hourly absorption limit, protein powder manufacturers are left with a BIG PROBLEM! The short transit time of protein in liquid form through the small intestine. A recent study showed whey protein has a transit time of approx. 1.5 -2 hrs. So how is it possible to make a 6 hour protein in liquid form?
How can we create a 6 hr protein powder?
The answer is by adding micellar casein. The casein micelles stick together, resulting in the liquid coagulating. In turn makes it behave more like a food than a liquid increasing the transit time through the small intestine.
What is a 7 phase protein?
If various protein forms are combined into one product, we are able to take advantage of the staggered digestive and absorption times. Each protein source has its own digestive time phase. Introducing Protein 7+, a 7 phase protein powder that will deliver amino acids to your body over a 6 hr period.
Why ADD digestive enzymes?
In order to get the most out of the Protein 7+ protein matrix, we’ve added a range of digestive enzymes.
What is Protease?
Protease breaks down proteins into smaller polypeptides or single amino acids, making protein easier to absorb.
What is Amylase?
Amylase is an enzyme that coverts complex starchy carbs into sugars.
What is Lipase?
A lipase is any enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of fats. Lipases perform essential roles in digestion, transport and processing of dietary fat.
What is Fungal Lactase?
Fungal lactase is an enzyme derived from the fungus Aspergillus oryzae. It hydrolyzes lactose into galactose and glucose to help with the digestion of dairy products.
What is Lactase?
Lactase is produced in the small intestine. It is essential to the complete digestion of whole milk, breaking down lactose.
