The 50g Anabolic Protein Matrix contains high levels of natural Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) and glutamine. Among the most beneficial and effective supplements in any sports nutrition program, are the BCAA’s, leucine, isoleucine and valine. The combination of these three essential amino acids make up approximately 1/3 of skeletal muscle in the human body, and play an important role in protein synthesis, and thus muscle growth and repair. Glutamine again is the most abundant amino acid found in the human body and is solely responsible for over 35% of the nitrogen that enters the muscles.
Research has revealed glutamine’s unique contribution to protein synthesis (muscle growth), antiproteolytic functions (preventing muscle breakdown) and growth hormone elevating effects.* Keeping a consistently high level of circulating growth hormone allows you to combat the catabolic effects of weight training even further. Glutamine also plays a part in maintaining proper blood glucose levels and the right pH range.
