Fuel Muscle Mass is packed with carbohydrates along with many essential vitamins, minerals and proteins . Fuel Muscle Mass can actually be considered an MRP, but the main difference between the two powders is the carbohydrate count. With approximately double the carbs, Fuel Muscle Mass is ideal for intense workouts providing lean muscle growth and increased energy levels, while also burning fat in the process. Fuel Muscle Mass has been specifically formulated to contain the right balance of vitamins. Each ingredient is selected in consideration of its absorbability, competitiveness among other nutrients, allergenic potential, and safety. Fuel Muscle Mass is infused with 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. 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. 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. Like MRP and Whey Protein, Fuel Muscle Mass 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.
