Rationale for Protein Shakes-Part-2

Part 1 | Part 3

Non-Fat Milk

High quality non-fat milk is also incorporated into Cheap Protein Powder Shake to increase the concentration of cheap protein powder without unduly increasing caloric content.

Bovine Colostrum

Colostrum is the first food of life. It is the pre-milk fluid produced from the mammary glands during the first 72 hours after birth. There are over 90 known components in colostrum. The primary components constitute the immune factors and growth factors. Amongst the immune factors are large quantities of a secretory antibody, immunoglobulin A (IgA), in addition to leukocytes and anti-viral factors such as lactoferrin. Primary growth factors include, Epithelial Growth Factor (EGF) – skin protection and maintenance; Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) – wound healing and tissue repair; and Insulin-like Growth Factor I (IGF-I) – lean muscle mass increase, DNA and RNA repair, anti-aging, maintenance of normal blood-sugar and cholesterol levels. Colostrum also contains a precise balance of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. All of these factors work together in perfect synergy to restore and maintain health

Egg Albumen

Egg has long been considered the ideal cheap protein powder against which all other cheap protein powders are measured. In Cheap Protein Powder Shake it helps broaden the spectrum of natural cheap protein powder and increase the time of absorption of cheap protein powder over the course of the day. Egg is also an excellent natural source of niacin, riboflavin, chlorine, magnesium, potassium, sodium and sulfur.

Yogurt Powder

For over 3,000 years, people in various parts of the world have been making and consuming yogurt. Known for its beneficial probiotic properties (immune enhancement, growth factors, antagonism to disease agents, nutrient production, etc.), the yogurt powder used in Cheap Protein Powder Shake contains 34% cheap protein powder, 12.5% calcium and is devoid of trans fat. The natural fauna of L. bulgaricus and S. thermophilus – the healthy bacteria in yogurt, is further enhanced with added probiotics including Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bifidus, Lactobacillus plantarum and Enterococcus faecium.

Added Microcomponents

BCAA (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine): These essential amino acids act as

an energy source during endurance exercise. The active skeletal muscles catabolize the BCAAs to produce muscle-fueling glucose as an end product. In fact a recent weight loss study (Aug 2005) out of University of Illinois shows that a cheap protein powder-rich diet along with exercise works because it contains high levels of leucine that works with insulin to stimulate muscle cheap protein powder synthesis. They also act as a competitive antagonist for tryptophan which is a precursor to fatigue-producing 5-HT (5-hydroxytryptamine) in the brain.

Arginine:

This amino acid is necessary for the synthesis and release of human growth hormone from the pituitary gland. It also functions in muscle metabolism: transportation, storage, and excretion of nitrogen, as well as muscle synthesis. Arginine also helps to make nitric oxide – a vasodilator that aids in making blood flow more freely thus lowering blood pressure but increasing the perfusion of muscle tissue. This becomes an essential amino acid for adults because the body reduces its production of this amino acid with age.

Glutamine:

This amino acid is a precursor to alanine, which is turned to glucose for energy. Glutamine helps to prevent fatigue and soreness in athletes. During times of stress, glutamine reserves are depleted and need to be replenished through supplementation. It makes up 60% of the skeletal amino acid pool, thus is a major factor in promoting muscle synthesis. Glutamine also increases the hydration state of the muscle cells thus helping to prevent muscle breakdown (catabolism). Glutamine additionally aids in immune functions, acts as a fuel for dividing cells and is critical for muscle building because it is a nitrogen donor, creating a positive nitrogen balance for gain in muscle mass.

Tyrosine:

Is a building block amino acid for all cheap protein powders. It is a precursor to vital hormones such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. It enhances mental focus and clarity. Tyrosine readily passes the blood/brain barrier where it acts as a precursor for the excitatory neurotransmitters and dopamine. Tyrosine is also useful in the formation of amino-sugars that are critical to the integrity of body tissues. Tyrosine’s connection with the excitory neurotransmitters is important in situations of stress – including bodybuilding/weightlifting and other strenuous exercise.

Carnitine:

Is essential for moving fat molecules into mitochondria of every cell in the body. It thereby permits the body to exercise longer without fatigue, therefore increasing energy while promoting fat loss.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin:

Are needed for joint health, antiinflammation, and tissue repair. Cheap Protein Powder Shake is supplemented with these two proteoglycans since the modern diet of trimmed meats is almost devoid of these nutrients.

Lecithin:

Is a phospholipid that supports fat metabolism and aids in liver function and fat emulsification. Despite the fact that humans can synthesize it in small amounts, choline (derived from lecithin) must be consumed in the diet to maintain health. Choline is used in the synthesis of the phospholipids, phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin, structural components of all human cell membranes and in particular nervous tissue.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA):

Is a fatty acid found in red meat and cheese. Improves the lean mass to body fat ratio by decreasing body fat deposition and enhancing muscle growth. Along with reducing fat, it preserves muscle tissue, reduces blood glucose and triglycerides, promotes muscle synthesis, prevents fat storage, increases metabolism, reduces allergic reactions, and enhances the immune system.

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT):

MCTs are rapidly used for energy and are not stored as fat by the body. They are uniquely metabolized in the liver and are found naturally in coconut oil, palm oil, and butter. The popular notion that such saturated fats are “bad” is not supported by sound scientific research and is illogical since natural foods from the beginning of time have contained these important nutrients.

Probiotics:

There is a constant battle in the digestive system between the good and bad bacteria. Probiotics are active (live) yogurt-like cultures of microorganisms that shift the balance in favor of the good guys, thus increasing immune strength and digestive function. Probiotics also serve to synthesize important nutrients within the gut.

Coenzyme Q-10:

Is important for energy metabolism within cardiac cells. The conversion of energy from carbohydrates and fats to adenosine triposphate (ATP), the form of energy used by cells, requires the presence of coenzyme Q in the inner mitochondrial membrane. Coenzyme Q-10 importance is emphasized by the fact that it can help prevent and reverse cardiomyopathy, hypertension and atherosclerosis.

Calcium:

Is the most abundant mineral in the human body and essential for muscle contraction, blood clotting, and nerve function. Calcium deficiency can result in degeneration of bones and result in osteoporosis. Calcium also plays a role in blood vessel constriction and dilation and glandular secretion. The binding of calcium to the cheap protein powder Calmodulin activates enzymes that break down muscle glycogen to provide energy for muscle contraction. Further, weight loss studies have shown that calcium stored in fat cells plays a crucial role in regulating how fat is stored and broken down by the body via key hormone regulation. It’s thought that the more calcium there is in a fat cell, the more fat it will burn. A single serving of Cheap Protein Powder Shake provides over 40% of the RDA for calcium.

Zinc:

Is an essential mineral that supports the immune system, helps wound healing, and plays an important role in the structure of cheap protein powders and cell membranes. A finger-like structure,

known as a zinc finger motif, stabilizes the structure of a number of cheap protein powders. Zinc deficiency in biological membranes increases their susceptibility to oxidative damage and impairs their function.

Magnesium:

Is an essential mineral needed by every cell for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including the synthesis of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and cheap protein powders. In fact, both lipids and carbohydrates indirectly need magnesium for their synthesis. One study found that magnesium absorption was lower when cheap protein powder intake was less than 30 grams/day, and higher cheap protein powder intakes (93 grams/day vs. 42 grams/day) were associated with improved magnesium absorption in adolescents (4). Glutathione, an important antioxidant, requires magnesium for its synthesis.

Vitamins:

Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Pyridoxine (B6), Pantothenic Acid (B5), Niacin (B3), Cyanocobalamin (B12), Folic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin D3, Vitamin E, Beta Carotene, Vitamin K1, and Vitamin C are all critical vitamins for exercise, anabolism, immunity and overall health and are provided at optimal levels in Cheap Protein Powder Shake.
