How much should I take?
A basic rule of thumb is 2-3 grams of protein per kilogram of weight. That is if you weigh 100kg, you should take 200grams of Protein (dietary total) to maintain, or up to 300grams to gain size. You should calculate your average intake to include Protein from other high quality sources like chicken, beef, tuna etc.
Take 40g ( 2 rounded scoops ) in 200-250ml of water or skim milk 3-4 times daily or as required. Mass Gainer Protein can be added to any meal to increase protein and energy content. Add to your favourite pancake mix, yoghurt, cereal or similar food.
Protein- Helping to maintain a healthy body weight, protein offers the building blocks of most of the structures in our bodies. The digested particles of protein known as Amino Acids are vital for the production of enzymes and proto-hormones such as insulin and growth hormone, collagen and skins matrix and important neurotransmitters such as adrenaline and dopamine or the sleep hormone melatonin.
Whey Protein Concentrate- Unlike WPI, WPC retains a portion of its carbohydrate content. This carbohydrate content allows an increase in insulin secretion during digestion which promotes the transport of amino acids into the cells.
The importance of sustained utilisation and dosing of proteins is paramount for maintaining an anabolic state. Some formulas offer huge 80 gram serves of Whey Protein Isolate which dump large amounts of quickly digestible proteins and amino acids into the blood stream which are dealt with destructively. Excess amino acids are deaminated to form keto-acids, which are converted to acetyl CoA or to intermediates of the glycolytic pathway.6 This means that without insulin to mediate transport and halt gluconeogenesis amino acids are quickly turned to glucose and glycogen instead of cell volume and peptide hormones. The initial activity and low blood sugars stimulate glucagon secretion, which in turn increases blood sugar, stimulating insulin secretion causing sugar stowage. Thats expensive glycogen.
The secondary roles of insulin support in protein metabolism is glucagon inhibition. When blood sugars are high insulin circulates, when blood sugars are low glucagon circulates. Glucagon stimulates the release of glucose from liver glycogen and release alanine from muscle tissue. Alanine is the second most abundant circulating amino acid to glutamine. Once released from the cell and in the blood plasma the liver turns the alanine via deamination to pyruvate which is used as a substrate for gluconeogenesis or production of glucose. Glucagon also stimulates the release of fatty acids from within cells, reducing the overall volume and size of the cell structure. As a result of glucagon stimulation, and the resulting formation of glucose from amino acids, formation or biosynthesis of proteins is retarded.
Insulin secretion = glucagon inhibition = cellular alanine retention and allows protein synthesis to continue.
Technologies have come along way over the last few years when it comes to Whey Protein extraction and filtration methods however human physiology has stayed the same. It is for this reason a medium to sustained release formula for protein supplementation has been developed for EKEN. We have incorporated low lactose (see lactose tolerance studies) milk based, high quality whole proteins for anabolic results.
Glutamine is an amino acid widely used to maintain good brain functioning. Glutamine is a derivative of glutamic acid which is synthesized from the amino acids arginine, ornithine and proline. Glutamine improves mental alertness, clarity of thinking and mood. It is found in animal proteins. Glutamic acid is also a precursor of GABA, an important neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and further the metabolism of GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) leads to the production of endogenous GHB (gamma hydroxy butyrate). GHB acts upon the hypothalamus stimulating the release and synthesis of growth hormone. Glutamic acid helps transport potassium into the spinal fluid and is itself an excitatory neurotransmitter.
Because glutamic acid cannot cross the blood brain barrier, glutamine, which can cross this barrier, works better in supplement form. Once past this barrier, Glutamine is partially converted back to Glutamic Acid. Hence the user will experience effects from both chemicals. Glutamine (like glucose) can be used by cells for metabolic
energy. When you weight train you need more glutamine than those who don't train. Glutamine is the most plentiful free amino acid in the body's muscle tissue. L-Glutamine plays a very important role in protein metabolism, cell volumizing, and anti-catabolism, which means that it may help prevent muscle breakdown. Under periods of stress like really intense workouts, glutamine supplementation becomes critical because of the rate limiting step in the endogenous glutamine synthesis your body may not be able to make enough of it. Studies show that glutamine supplementation is an effective way to replace these declining levels and thus maintain peak athletic performance.
Glutamine and the immune system: Stress and exercise decrease the stores of glutamine within the body. Supplemental glutamine is necessary for athletes to maintain viable glutamine stores and retain sufficient muscle tone to continue peak performance.
Carbohydrates- Offering basic chemicals which will be utilized as glycogen triggering secretion of insulin and other hormones and energy by way of a reaction called the Krebs Cycle. Lactose is the predominant carbohydrate in the sustained release protein.
Insulin Support - Whey carbohydrate content will increase insulin levels for superior uptake of proteins. The addition of chromium polynicotinate has also been added to enhance the effects of insulin transport mechanisms.
