Because of it’s great taste and value, Big Whey has long been Nutrition X’s best selling protein powder. When we asked our research and development team to improve the already winning formula of Big Whey they immediately asked the question:
“why do people supplement with protein powders?”
The answers came thick and fast……
- to accelerate recovery from training!
- to boost daily protein consumption!
- to rebuild muscle tissues!
- to help improve muscle tone!
Although whey protein will assist with all of these it can be improved. To improve on whey protein you first of all have to understand why we take this as a supplement.
Whey protein powders such as Big Whey provide your muscles with the amino acids necessary to assist in muscle recovery, rebuilding and building muscle tissues and improving muscle tone.
Although whey protein is a good source of these amino acids there are a few amino acids that our bodies need an extra boost of, in particular, leucine and glutamine!
Leucine is regarded by many sports nutritionists as being the most import of the branched chain amino acid (BCAA’s) for very good reason. Leucine has been shown to:
- help regular blood sugar levels
- help with growth and repair of muscle tissues
- stimulate growth hormone production
- prevent muscle breakdown
- promote muscle protein synthesis
- helps prevent protein degradation
We also fortified Big Whey with the popular amino acid glutamine because it has been shown to:
- prevent exercise induced muscle breakdown
- has positive effects on immune function
- improves insulin concentrations promoting an anabolic state
- essential for gut health ensuring optimum absorption of nutrients
So there you have it, whey protein is very effective at improving recovery, repair and muscle tone but we decided to give nature a little extra help by fortifying it with leucine and glutamine.
