Benefits Of Tri-Blend Protein
Most people have supplemented with Whey Protein in the past or have at least heard of it before. Fewer people have utilized Casein Protein and far less are aware of the several varieties of whey protein including Whey Concentrate and Whey Isolate. If you have supplemented with protein powders in the past, it is likely you have only been exposed to Whey Isolate. Whey Isolate acts quickly in the body to synthesize new proteins in the muscle immediately after a workout. This is why it is most popular, for the immediate effect. However, there is much more to the muscular recovery process than the “anabolic window” immediately following training.
Proteins are the building blocks of muscle and amino acids are the building blocks of DNA
During the workout you are breaking down the muscle fibers being trained. In order to improve, these fibers must replaced so to speak, with bigger and stronger fibers. Because proteins are the building blocks of muscle and the fact that the body is in a hyper-receptive sate to nutrients post workout, it makes sense to utilize the fast acting Whey Isolate. Whey Isolate is highly effective in rebuilding muscle thus inducing greater muscular hypertrophy and strength but recovery does not stop an hour after your workout, which is why we also included Whey Concentrate and Casein in the Max Effort Tri-Blend Protein.
Whey Concentrate is a denatured version of Whey Isolate. The term denatured refers to the molecular structure of the protein molecule being broken down. When proteins work their way through the body they naturally denature via the body’s metabolic processes. The breaking down of the protein molecule is what allows the body to use it for rebuilding muscle. It is only when proteins are broken down into smaller forms such as amino acids that the muscle can utilize them. Therefore the nutrients can be taken up into the muscle far more readily.
Now that we have that out of the Whey… Casein Protein is a more slowly digested protein that releases throughout the day. The delayed release does not hinder the ability of the muscle to utilize the nutrients. In fact, when in combination with a Whey protein it has been shown to enhance the muscles ability to grow and recover. By supplementing with both Casein and Whey you are able to send a continuous supply of amino acids to the muscle even after the Whey protein has been used up. Thanks to Max Effort’s Tri-Blend can see these benefits from just one product! No need to waste money on separate Casein and Whey Protein supplements. We combine Whey Concentrate, Whey Isolate and Casein in a 1:1:1 ratio to ensure maximum benefit and max value!
