International Protein Amino Charged WPI is based on highly bioavailable Whey Protein Isolate. Bio refers to biology and our body, while availability is the amount of amino acids that actually make their way into the cell, where we need them. In essence, bioavailability is a figure we can use to judge how relevant a protein is for our needs.
With any protein powder, the amino acids ultimately end up supporting cellular structure and function. Ideally, we want as close to 100% of the amino acids found in the protein as is possible to end up in the blood stream. This way, we get the best muscular adaptation and nutritional support. With this product, International Protein deliver on their promise of high quality nutrition.
Hydrolised whey protein (whey peptides) is a whey protein that has been hydrolised. Hydrolysis is the breaking of peptide bonds which join amino acids together, leaving more free form amino acids, dipeptides (2 amino acids linked) and tripeptides (3 amino acids).
This leads to faster digestion time and elevation of blood amino acids. The nutrition literally gets to your muscles faster. On top of this, it makes for less of a digestive burden, as the hydrolised protein is essentially pre-digested.
Less work for your stomach and digestive organs can be a great thing if you are on a high calorie diet, or if you are prone to gastrointestinal upsets, like bloating or indigestion.
International Protein WPI is the perfect blend of high bioavailability whey protein, with the added benefit of tasting awesome and coming in a range of enticing flavours, such as cookies and cream, turkish delight and caramel popcorn. That's right—caramel popcorn. And it's delicious!
Scientific research has been prolific over the past few decades as interest in the importance of amino acids—particularly essential amino acids—is growing rapidly. International Protein Amino Charged WPI contains all 9 essential amino acids, including histidine and the branch chain amino acids (BCAAs: isoleucine, leucine and valine).
Whey protein is effective at stimulating muscle protein synthesis well above a normal baseline 1. This means that essential amino acids are making their way into muscle cells and stimulating an anabolic response 2.
If your goal is not to not put on muscle size, you may be thinking that a quality anabolic whey protein is not for you. But it's important to remember that an appreciable amount of muscle gain is difficult to attain and require a lot of heavy lifting. Constant heavy lifting. If you aren't training like a bodybuilder, odds are you aren't going to create a lot of muscle growth. Furthermore, muscles only get bigger when the growth signals outweigh breakdown signals.
If you are breaking down muscle as fast as you are building it, your muscles won't get bigger. This means your catabolic signals are stronger than your anabolic ones. We need a good amount of muscle protein turnover (anabolism plus cataboilism) in order to keep this tissue healthy. It can be compared to removing old worn bricks from a home and replacing them with fresh new ones. However, it's good to have your anabolic signals outweighing your catabolic ones, even just for general health.
International Protein WPI is one of the few products that actually delivers a decent serving size, with 35.3 grams of protein per 40g serve, as well as added glutamine and l-arginine. Many whey protein powders contain only 20-24 grams of protein per serve. Research into muscle protein synthesis recently demonstrated the beneficial effect of 40 grams of whey versus 20 grams, regardless of the amount of muscle mass that the individual holds 3.
International Protein WPI truly is a quality product, making no excuses for providing unsurpassed premium nutrition in a convenient range of sizes and flavours to suit even the most discerning palate.
