NitroPro Fuels Muscle Protein Synthesis
NitroPro fuels muscle protein synthesis by utilizing a proprietary amino acid matrix with an exceptionally high net nitrogen utilization (NNU) and an ideal anabolic/anti-catabolic profile of essential amino acids (EAAs). This unique amino acid matrix helps optimize the delivery of a maximum number and optimal array of essential amino acids (as well as other amino acids used by muscles) directly to the juncture of protein synthesis in muscle cells, and also for support of other intramuscular activity that also further supports muscle protein synthesis. This superior amino acid matrix is not found in commercial protein formulations (in hospital burn units, maybe, but not where you buy your sports nutrition supplements).
Protein Absorption RateSo what allows NitroPro to have a substantially higher NNU protein matrix as compared to typical protein supplements?
Most people have heard of whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate, although whey protein hydrolysate (hydrolyzed whey) tends to remain something of a mystery. (Hydrolyzed whey protein is by far the most expensive type of whey protein and justifiably so as you will see.) What does hydrolyzed mean? When protein has been hydrolyzed, this means it's amino acids and peptides have been strategically broken down into smaller (simpler) pieces – a process which emulates part digestion. But what good is pre-digested whey protein? Despite whey protein being the most digestible protein with the highest biological value (BV), and the fastest digestible protein, it still needs to be digested (broken down into smaller components before it's used). Hydrolyzed whey protein is protein that has gone through a refining process (partly broken down) to make it even more digestible on the whole, and faster digesting, further improving it's effectiveness at building muscle mass.
NitroPro is jam-packed with all three BCAAs: leucine, isoleucine, and valine, especially leucine, the key amino acid whose intramuscular threshold concentration signals protein synthesis. The specific BCAA ratio in NitroPro is 2:1:1 of leucine:isoleucine:valine, because in order to metabolize two molecules of leucine, one molecule each of valine and isoleucine must be metabolized. Thus, the higher ratio of leucine prevents leucine from causing a depletion of the other BCAAs. The BCAAs in typical whey protein supplements are peptide bound to other amino acids and must be liberated through digestion and absorbed into the bloodstream to exert their effects, which means they are not readily available when your muscles need them immediately after training.
NitroPro Accelerates Muscle Protein Synthesis (Translation)
NitroPro accelerates muscle protein synthesis by utilizing Hi-Tech's Nitrogen Recovery System, which consists of a well-proven Russian compound that speeds up the conversion of amino acids into new muscle tissue by accelerating the third stage of protein synthesis (translation). This is accomplished by enhancing ribosomal activity that decodes messenger RNA (mRNA) responsible for directing the specific sequencing of amino acids for muscle tissue construction. Since the body will begin wasting amino acids that hang around in the bloodstream too long, the faster you can accelerate the rate of protein synthesis in muscle, the faster you will deplete the supply of amino acids still in your bloodstream before they can be wasted.
NitroPro Sustains Muscle Protein Synthesis
NitroPro sustains muscle protein synthesis by utilizing two proprietary, manufacturing technologies that extend the time in which the amino acids in NitroPro (from non-hydrolyzed whey protein sources) remain available in the bloodstream to fuel intramuscular protein synthesis machinery, and also by incorporating a quality protein source whose slow digestion gradually releases its amino acids.
NitroPro utilizes proprietary Micro-Rx and Extend-Rx technologies to sustain muscle protein synthesis by extending the availability of the amino acids found in the 15% protein content in NitroPro that is not hydrolyzed whey.
In a Nutshell...
NitroPro is the best-tasting, high-quality protein supplement available, and is exactly what you need first thing in the morning, before your workout, and immediately after your workout when your hard-working muscles benefit most from a fast-acting protein.
NitroPro contains an exceptional 60-gram protein blend that consists of 85% hydrolyzed whey protein, and a blend of 15% egg, micellar casein, whey protein isolate, and whey protein concentrate proteins.
NitroPro contains 20 grams of complex carbohydrates that contributes to its other anti-catabolic properties to help ensure that your body will conserve protein for building muscle tissue, and not consume your muscles as an energy source. NitroPro also contains a precise vitamin/mineral mix necessary to speed up the process of converting amino acids into protein and muscle. These nutrients are essential for the conversion of food into energy, tissue growth and repair, and most importantly, building muscle.
