Optimum Nutrition Whey Gold Meal Powder - 7.62 lbs
Whey proteins have the highest biological value, protein digestibility corrected amino score, and protein efficiency ratio compared with any other single protein. Whey wins out because it is rich in all eight essential amino acids, it is rapidly digested, and easily assimilated. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. However, heavy lifting and extreme physical exertion may exceed the body's ability to synthesize glutamine from other compounds, causing plasma glutamine levels to fall, which could potentially weaken your immune system. That's why 16% if the total protein in each serving of Whey Gold Meal is comprised of naturally occurring glutamine and glutamine precursors. BCAAs are unique in that they can be directly metabolized by muscle tissue to serve as an important fuel source during strenuous physical activity. Whey protein is one of nature's best sources of the 3 branched chain amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Whey proteins are some of the fastest digesting proteins available, which means you are able to absorb vital nutrients a short time before your workout. Rapid amino acid delivery is also critical immediately following your workout, when your liver and muscles are primed for recovery and glycogen resyntheses.
To maintain lean muscle mass, you need to consume high-protein meals 5-6 times a day. Whey Gold Meal is a quick, convenient, and delicious meal providing premium proteins, quality carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamins, and essential minerals. By using only whey proteins, the same instantized proteins (isolates concentrates, and hydrolysates) found in our 100%Whey Gold Standard, we created a uniquely superior meal replacement of the highest nutritional value.
