FUEL Whey Protein Original - 4 x 5 lb
Fuel Whey Protein is low in carbohydrates and calories, and high in quality proteins. Specifically, Whey Protein is a powder that contains soluable enzymes that permit the body to easily digest them. This allows protein to be quickly and readily available for muscle repair, ensuring faster muscle growth post workout. Proteins are the building block of all muscle and account for approximately 20% of all muscle tissue. The RDA or Recommended Dietary Allowance for protein varies depending on the individuals activity levels. Recent studies suggest that age and activity level may influence protein requirements for optimum health. For example, elderly adults may have a significantly higher protein requirement than that of young adults. This requirement may be as high as 1. 0 g protein per kg body weight per day, or 25% more than that suggested for a young adult. This higher requirement may derive from a lower efficiency of protein utilization in advancing age, despite the associated decrease in muscle mass. Fuel Whey Protein also supplies essential amino acids that participate in all of the bodys metabolic and physiologic systems including the intestine, skeletal muscle, and the cardiovascular, nervous, and immune systems. Protein turnover in these systems is continuous and can be substantial. The dynamics of this constant degradation and resynthesis demand a daily supply of dietary protein. Failure to meet these increased protein needs may negatively affect an individuals immuno-competence and recovery from medical complications. Some scientists have also suggested that increased protein synthesis follows prolonged exercise. Athletes competing in body building or endurance sports may require significantly more protein than the normal requirement. Fuel Whey Protein is an isolate and concentrate blend providing 26 g of protein per serving. Like MRP and Muscle Mass, Fuel Whey Protein is available in both original and chocolate formulas. This allows for a greater diversity of unique shakes and smoothies giving Fuel owners and customers a choice in how their beverage is prepared.
