Twinlab's 100% Whey Protein Fuel - Product Review  Hot

 

Description

Twinlab’s 100% Whey Protein Fuel provides 50 grams of high quality whey protein (two servings) rich in BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) and amino acids. This protein powder includes a proprietary blend of whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, 19 amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Studies suggest that whey protein can promote anabolic (muscle building) effects, which maximizes muscle growth and lean tissue mass.

100% Whey Protein Fuel includes pure whey protein isolates (WPI) and whey protein concentrates (WPC). Whey protein contains the perfect combination of amino acids for optimal performance and positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein). Whey Protein Fuel also contains 19 amino acids including BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) leucine, valine and isoleucine. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are necessary for the growth, repair, and maintenance of muscle. Whey and BCAAs supply the necessary nutrients to promote muscle growth, endurance, repair and recovery.

Research suggests that whey protein is one of the most anabolic proteins available, providing amino acids to muscle tissue. Studies also show that BCAAs can help athletes improve strength, endurance and immunity during training or performance. In one study, researchers gave elite athletes either 6 grams of BCAA daily or a placebo (inactive pill) for one month before competing, then 3 grams daily for one week following the day of competition. They found that BCAAs restored depleted amino acid and protein levels that commonly occur in athletes after intense training or athletic performance.

This is a perfect comibination for the body to provide proteins and I use it regularly. It is not much costly and quite economical. I use it always since I am a non-vegeterian.
