Protifuel is a combination of fast absorbing plant sourced high quality protein to provide a full amino acid spectrum with a good bioavailability which makes it a good whey alternative. Vegan certified BE-V2019.047
Protifuel protein has a great taste and provides also numerous other nutrients such as phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals that are also highly regarded in the diet. In the Protifuel blend we carefully combine plant sourced hydrolysates, isolates and concentrates. The protein digestibility of Protifuel is a combination of 50% of fast, 25% intermediate and 25% slow absorbing protein to provide for all of the essential amino acids with a good availability in formulation for athletes and active people.
AVERAGE USE AND PERFORMANCE BENEFITS: Protifuel is a complete protein with a high concentration of essential amino acids. Protein is vital for all athletes. Protifuel is a source of amino acids. It provides the building blocks for the synthesis or building of muscles, connective tissues, enzymes, and hormones. These amino acids can also act as signalers and initiators of the building pathways in the body.
Using Protifuel High Quality Protein in relation to nutrient timing before and after exercise is believed to enhance muscle recovery and building. The intake of protein for athletes is very important. Protifuel not only helps athletes to meet their increased protein demands during training and competition, it also contains intermediate and slow absorbing protein which is absorbed at a slower rate than the 50% fast hydrolysate protein in the blend. This is important since it may help extend the time at which amino acid acids are delivered to the muscles, thereby maximizing lean body weight gains. Because of this fact Protifuel can also be used to improve endurance. Protifuel combines different protein sources and this may help during ultraendurance competition such as long-distance cycling since the different absorbing rates of the protein produce a glycogensparing effect and thereby enhancing exercise time to fatigue. Regardless of your individual goals, it’s important to get enough protein.
Protifuel has a variety of benefits. These include gains in lean body mass, which can also lead to improved strength and power; improved recovery from training; and less muscle soreness. Protifuel can also be used to maintain muscle mass in energy- or calorierestricted states during weight loss.
