With four types of protein added to each bar, BSc Protein Bars have got your amino acid needs covered. These protein sources offer fast and sustained-release protein from a blend of whey proteins, casein and soy protein isolate. Each bar delivers just the right amount essential amino acids to support muscle protein synthesis and your overall health needs. These bars won't bulk you up, but they will help your body adapt and recover from your chosen form of exercise.
Muscle protein synthesis keeps our muscles healthy, renewed and strong, and is an important process to support when exercising regularly. For protein synthesis to take full effect, we need the building blocks of the human body, called essential amino acids. Whey protein, casein and soy protein are rich sources of these important nutrients.
The humble legume is an underated source of quality nutrition. Legumes contain plenty of protein nutriton and offer a complete amino acid profile. Body Science Protein Bars contain soy protein isolate, shown by an article published by The Journal of Applied Physiology back in 2009 to be comparable to hydrolised whey protein at stimulating protein synthesis. In addition, whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate are well known as perhaps the best stimulators of protein synthesis.
These bars contain no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners and no added sucrose. BSc Low Carb Protein Bars are designed to ensure you never have to experience another dry cardboard-like protein bar ever again! For a healthy nutritious snack or to increase protein intake you can't go past BSc Protein Bars.
When to Enjoy a BSc Protein Bar
Consume a BSc Protein Bar as a convenient high protein snack between meals or after exercise. Alternatively, enjoy one warmed up after a meal as a dessert or as a midnight snack.
Best Protein Bar for Weight Loss?
These low carb bars bring some of the gourmet deluxe flavour into a fat-loss program that can often be sorely missed. They may be used as a snack throughout the day, or as an occassional dessert warmed up. Protein is a thermogenic nutrient, which helps to wind up the metabolism and improve calorie burning. Each bar delivers just over 200 calories, making it a convenient protein source that tastes great and contributes very little to your daily energy intake.
Are Protein Bars Good Before a Workout?
As a general rule, it's good to exercise on an empty stomach. The more intense the exercise is, the more this principle applies. This means no food or thick drinks for 2-3 hours before exercise begins. When you're exercising, digestion is not high on your body's priority list. In fact, digestion becomes "shut-down" to a degree when exercising heavily. However, if your goal is to gain weight, or you are engaging in low to moderate intensity endurance exercise, you might get away with a bar 1/2 hour before exercise.
