Which Protein Should I Use - ProSupps Blog

PICKING THE RIGHT PROTEIN POWDER FOR YOUR GOALS

IT CAN BE OVERWHELMING

Do you get overwhelmed with the amount of supplements available to you in the marketplace? It seems that there are endless options for products and they all claim to work differently and/or better than the next! It’s no wonder you can easily get confused.

PROTEIN POWDER IS A KEY SUPPLEMENT

However, if nothing else, arguably one of the most important supplements that should be added to your daily routine is Protein Powder. In this article we will simply discuss the different types of protein powder that ProSupps manufactures, most frequently asked questions, and how to choose which protein is right for you.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF PROTEIN POWDER:

1.) PS WHEY:

ProSupps PS Whey is the premium choice for meeting your daily protein needs. Containing 24g of 100% pure, premium whey protein per serving, you can focus more on your next workout or next task and not on the quality of your protein. PS Whey harnesses the power of both whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate. This unique combination offers unique ‘whole food’ benefits while driving protein synthesis to maximize your lean muscle growth and repair. Lastly, we know that premium taste is just as important, so we worked tirelessly to bring you gourmet flavors to satisfy even the most discerning of taste buds.

  • 24g Premium Whey Protein/serving
  • Promotes Optimal Protein Synthesis & Amino Acid Levels†
  • Supports Strength, Lean Muscle & Metabolism†
  • ZERO Gluten, Added Sugars or Amino Spiking

PS Whey: Whey is King Where It Matters

If you’re looking for the best possible quality of protein, you will be hard strapped to find a protein that is better than the whey contained in ProSupps PS Whey . Going way beyond just how many grams of protein per serving, there are 3 key factors that determine protein quality. These factors include essential amino acid composition, the digestibility of the protein and bioavailability of its amino acids. In order to asses this, there have been several metrics developed in an effort to assess protein sources with the 3 key components for assessing a protein source being the following:

Biological Value (BV)

This is the measure of protein quality and the efficiency of how well the human body utilized the protein It is tested using nitrogen values retained by the body, which in theory, are used in tissue and muscle formation. This value is then divided by the total amount of nitrogen absorbed from dietary protein. The maximum score of the test when created was 100, however it was created utilizing egg protein which at the time was considered the best whole food protein source. Scientific research leading to the formulation of advanced, concentrated proteins such as PS Whey make it possible to exceed this score.

Protein Efficiency Ratio

When it comes down to it, one of the sole reasons for using a protein such as ProSupps PS Whey is for lean muscle growth and maintenance. The PER is basically a number that measures the muscle weight gain of a subject being fed a diet consisting of a specific protein against the amount of food that subject consumes, dividing the grams of weight gained by the grams of protein consumed.

Net Protein Utilization (NPU)

Net protein utilization is the overall determination of how many amino acids are eventually converted into whole proteins and utilized in the body. The overall values are typically and indirect measure of protein intake vs nitrogen secretion from the body and simply put, the proof is in the numbers that you can rest assured PS Whey delivers protein that you will utilize.

2.) ISO-P3:

ProSupps Iso-P3 was created to not only be the highest quality protein on the market today, but to change the way you think about protein. Containing 25g of complete, premium isolate protein sources, Iso-P3 goes beyond ‘just’ whey protein isolate. Harnessing the power of multiple protein sources including whey protein isolate, milk protein isolate and whey hydrolysate, Iso-P3 is designed to not only ignite protein synthesis, but keep amino acid levels elevated for hours, maximizing your potential for growth and repair. Don’t just settle, raise the bar and expect more from your isolate protein with the 3 isolate sources.

  • 25g Premium 3-Isolate Source Protein/serving
  • Promotes Optimal Protein Synthesis & Amino Acid Levels
  • ZERO concentrate proteins, Gluten, Added Sugars or Lactose

Iso-P3: The Science

The 3-source protein isolate matrix in ProSupps Iso-P3 contains whey protein isolate, milk protein isolate and whey hydrolysate to not only ignite protein synthesis, but keep amino acid levels elevated and circulating for hours. These immediate and prolonged levels of amino acids circulating help promote maximal anabolism (building) and maximize the potential for lean muscle tissue growth and repair.

Specifically, the whey isolate and hydrolysates rapidly digest and increase amino acid levels in the body, peaking after about 1.5 hours and returning to baseline 3-5 hours later. On the other hand, milk protein isolate containing 80% casein protein by nature coagulates in the gut, translating to slower, more prolonged digestion. This leads to a elevation in amino acid levels in the body for up to 7 hours, therefore prolonging the potential for lean muscle tissue growth and repair.

3.) INCREDIBULK:

ProSupps IncrediBULK was created to be the most effective, highest quality lean muscle gaining formulations on the market. The fact of the matter is that some have faster metabolisms than others, and no matter how hard they try, they struggle to put on quality muscle mass. This is known as an ectomorph type body and can be one of the most frustrating issues when it comes to adding muscle size and weight. IncrediBULK addresses the needs of the ectomorph ‘hard-gainer’ head on and pushes your lean mass building potential to the next level with a well-rounded profile featuring 250+ carbohydrates, 50g of premium protein and a total of 1,250 calories per serving. Further rounding out the nutritional profile is the addition of CLA and MCTs for lean muscle and metabolism support.†

  • Premium Protein Blend for Optimal Protein Synthesis†
  • Promotes Optimal Protein Synthesis & Amino Acid Levels
  • ZERO concentrate proteins, Gluten, Added Sugars or Lactose

IncrediBULK: The Science

The fact of the matter is, if you’re looking to add quality lean muscle mass, you need to fuel the growth with quality calories. It takes 3,500 calories a week above your maintenance level in order to gain just one pound and for many, aside from the gym, this is the hardest part of their fitness goals. This can be accomplished from a combination of whole foods and supplemental calories… ProSupps IncrediBULK was created specifically for this purpose, packing 1,250 calories per serving to get the needle moving in the right direction for your mass gaining goals.

The other thing to remember is that quality also matters when it comes to your calories. IncrediBULK was formulated starting with high biological value proteins that are easy to digest, provide a full spectrum of amino acids and support lean muscle growth and maintenance. Providing 50g of premium protein per serving, IncrediBULK has the protein you need to fuel recovery, lean muscle mass growth and quality weight gain. While protein is often thought of as king, calories don’t end with just protein. IncrediBULK has over 250g of quality carbohydrates per serving. Carbohydrates provide a sustained energy source for fueling training, recovery and growth and prevent protein from being used as fuel instead of building muscle.

4.) PSCASEIN:

PS Casein is formulated using only 100% pure micellar casein protein without the addition of unnecessary sugars, fillers, maltodextrin or inferior calcium caseinate. By nature, the micellar casein in PS Casein is slow digesting with prolonged absorption and is beneficial for times where a slower source is desirable such as pre-bed. You’re chasing after your goals for the long run… pick a protein that is meant to go the distance as well with PS Casein.†

  • 24g Premium Micellar Casein per Serving
  • Slow Digesting for Sustained Amino Acid Levels†
  • Supports Lean Muscle & Strength†

PS Casein: The Science

Casein is the predominant protein found in milk, composing about 80% of the naturally occurring protein content and is extracted without the use of chemicals using ultra-filtration, preserving the integrity of the amino acid profile and naturally occurring peptides. The unique nature of casein is that it has been shown to elevate amino acid levels for up to 7 hours after ingestion, substantially longer than whey or even milk protein isolate. This is due to the fact that casein proteins are PH sensitive causing them to thicken in the acidic environment of the stomach into a gel meaning there is a slow release of nutrients and amino acids. Due to this unique "time-released" quality, casein is considered anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting protein and ideal for applications such as pre-bed.

5.) MYSHAKE:

ProSupps MyShake was created with the idea that no matter what your physical goals are, the foundation of any successful regimen is built upon structured nutrition that supports lean muscle and reduced body fat. Containing 23g of premium tri-source protein, MyShake harnesses the power of multiple protein sources to promote immediate protein synthesis and help sustain amino acid levels for hours, optimizing lean muscle repair and metabolism. With no added sugars and enhanced with MCTs for a fast burning energy source and CLA for supporting a healthy body composition, MyShake is more than just another 'protein shake'.

  • 23g Premium Tri-Source Protein/Serving
  • Promotes Optimal Protein Synthesis & Sustained Amino Acid Levels†
  • Fortified with CLA & MCTs for Promotion of Improved Body Composition†
  • NO Plant Protein, Calcium Caseinate, Gluten, Maltodextrin, Corn Syrup or Added Sugar

MyShake: The Science

The Tri-Source protein matrix in ProSupps MyShake contains whey protein concentrate, micellar casein and milk protein isolate to not only ignite protein synthesis, but keep amino acid levels elevated and circulating for hours. These immediate and prolonged levels of amino acids circulating help promote maximal anabolism (building) and maximize the potential for lean muscle tissue growth and repair.

Specifically, the whey concentrate rapidly digests and increase amino acid levels in the body, peaking after about 1.5 hours and returning to baseline 3-5 hours later. On the other hand, micellar casein and milk protein isolate which contains 80% casein protein by nature, coagulates in the gut, translating to slower, more prolonged digestion. This leads to a elevation in amino acid levels in the body for up to 7 hours, therefore prolonging the potential for lean muscle tissue growth and repair.
