Learn How To Triple Your Muscle Gains
A new study has found that whey protein powder
– still the “go to” supplement for athletes and bodybuilders — is more easily absorbed and utilized when combined with specific enzymes,
The most recent double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study of the multi-enzyme compound ProHydrolase® combined with whey protein has shown improved digestion and absorption of amino acids along with reduction of the immunogenic responses associated with whey protein consumption, compared to whey protein alone.
The researchers gave 20 athletes (aged 19 to 35 with normal healthy BMI) whey protein with ProHydrolase® digestive enzymes for nine days and whey protein by itself for nine days.
At the end of the study, the researchers found that total amino acid concentrations increased significantly (by 55 mg) more after taking the whey protein and ProHydrolase digestive enzymes supplement than after just the whey protein-only supplement.
In other words – taking whey and ProHydrolase digestive enzymes provided 20% more amino acids than whey protein by itself.
ProHydrolase®, when consumed with a whey protein supplement, encourages pre-digestion of the protein, allowing for the release of the full content of the essential amino acids for building muscle and improving muscle recovery.
Here’s a breakdown of the ProHydrolase study results:
· Helps pre-digest whey protein so that amino acid levels in the bloodstream are up to 55 times higher compared to other leading protein enzymes on the market today.
· Can increase protein absorption by up to 300%.
· Supports muscle building and improved recovery time.
· Helps ensure smaller protein peptides are formed, which helps maintain normal CRP levels
Here is why this study has mass appeal: Whey protein is the top-of-mind powder
supplement for muscle-building. But there is an important step that allows for
the body to utilize the whey. Whey protein is somewhat cumbersome for the
digestive system to efficiently break down and assimilate, a process that
requires specific enzymes (proteases).
Typical whey proteins are bound together in a peptide complex that needs to be broken down for effective utilization. Ideally, for whey to help promote muscle growth and strength, it should be digested to at least the tetra-peptide level within 90 minutes to be used by the body. Absorption takes place in the small intestines. Larger protein fragments cannot be absorbed and become food for the micro flora in the large intestine which can contribute to unpleasant gas and bloating issues.
This research shows the impact when supplements can be effectively assimilated
and thus utilized, thereby meeting label claims. This is crucial, because
consumers do not feel their muscles being built and repaired, although they may
feel the “afterburn” of a particularly rigorous session.
