The importance of protein in nutrition and health cannot be overemphasized. Proteins are essential nutritionally because of their constituent amino acids, which the body must have in order to synthesize its own variety of proteins and nitrogen-containing molecules that make life possible. Protein is probably the most important supplement for all athletes, but it is especially indispensable for those involved in long-term, high intensity endurance training.

One of the greatest benefits of whey protein is that it improves immune function and, notably, elevates cellular glutathione levels. Glutathione is one of body's own potent antioxidants. Furthermore, glutathione is a detoxifying agent that neutralizes the free radical metabolites, toxic metals such as aluminum, chemical carcinogens, and prevents lipid peroxidation of the cell membrane, which if left unchecked could break the cells open.

The manner in which the body uses protein during and after exercise is quite different from the way it utilizes carbohydrates or fat for energy. In the hours after exercise, the body begins to build the so-called structural proteins from amino acids for muscle repair and growth, and remodeling the tissues needed for performance. This is one of the reasons that athletes should pay particular heed to nutrition for complete recovery fast and make it an integral part of their workout regimen.

Exercise duration and intensity are important factors in determining which of the nutrient fuels are burned to gain energy. An exercise regimen comprising of low- to moderate intensity of long duration necessitates large quantities of fuel --oftentimes more than carbohydrates and fat reserves in the body can provide. Therefore, the body begins to utilize structural and functional proteins during long-term aerobic exercise. In contrast, high-intensity exercise of short duration mostly uses glucose, which spares the protein
reservoir of the body.

The 100% Bioactive Whey in Whey Sensation 81 contains all the bioactive whey protein fractions such as Beta Lactoglobulin (55%), Alpha Lactalbumin (23%), Glycomacropeptide (12%), Immunoglobulin (5%), Serum Albumin (3%), Proteose Peptone (2%), and naturally occurring lactoferrin and lactoperoxidase. Whey Sensation 81 contains over 50% EAA’s and 26% BCAA’s.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:


1. Who benefits from protein?

Protein is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. It is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the "building blocks" for healthy bodies. Protein has a number of different roles in the body including repairing body cells, building and repairing muscles and bones, providing a source of energy, and controlling many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism. Whey protein is a high quality, complete protein, with all the essential amino acids. Whey protein is also the richest known source of naturally occurring branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine). These are important for active individuals, individuals who exercise and professional athletes. Many athletes consume a whey beverage both before and immediately after exercise or an event to help repair and rebuild lean muscle tissue.

2. Does Whey Protein Boost Immunity?

Yes. Whey protein is superior to other proteins in its property to boost immunity by increasing the body's own antioxidants. Ultimate Nutrition's Whey Sensation 81 is isolated by a complex low temperature processing system to retain immune boosting proteins which include B-Globulin, A-Lactalbumin, Glycomacropeptide, Immunoglobins and, among others, Lactoferrin. All constituents in this category inherently boot the immune system.

3. Why are BCAAs beneficial?
BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) comprise of 1/3 of muscle tissue and are the first amino acids to be catabolized due to intense exercise. Therefore, dietary BCAA supplementation is particularly important for hard-training individuals looking to maximize their muscle gains. The body requires higher amounts of branched chain amino acids during and following exercise as they are taken up directly by the skeletal muscles versus first being metabolized through the liver, like other amino acids. Low BCAA levels contribute to fatigue and they should be replaced in one-hour or less following exercise or participation in a competitive event.
