Protein Ingredients

WHEY PROTEIN

  • Protein is a compound made up of amino acids which are known as ‘the building blocks of protein’ and are essential for the healthy functioning of the human body
  • Whey Protein is a naturally produced protein that is a by-product of cheese production
  • As with other forms of protein, consumption of whey protein shortly after vigorous exercise can boost muscle growth and repair
  • All of our whey protein is naturally sourced from grass-fed cows and is a high protein, low carb and low fat protein source

BCAAS

  • BCAA stands for Branched Chain Amino Acid - the essential three amino acids that form the building blocks of protein
  • They can be found in any food containing protein, including eggs, meat, fish or whey protein
  • The 3 BCAAs are Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine
  • Leucine plays an important role in muscle protein synthesis, while isoleucine induces glucose uptake into cells.
  • These amino acids make up 35% of muscular tissue and play key role in protein synthesis which is important for muscular growth and repair
  • So making sure you are getting enough BCAAs is important, especially if you are exercising heavily
  • They are also useful during periods of fasting as they prevent your body from using muscle as a fuel source
  • All of our protein and energise products have a high BCAA profile to make sure you can get what you need before, during and after exercise
