What makes IntrAbolic different from the current supplements that fit in the pre-workout and post-workout categories?
By now, you are probably aware of the importance of two nutrient timing windows: pre-workout and post-workout. However, one largely overlooked nutrient timing window, is intra-workout (during-workout) supplementation.
What exactly is Intra-Workout Supplementation?
Simply put, Intra-Workout supplementation means taking nutrients during your workout (Intra-Workout).
What makes taking nutrients Intra-Workout (DURING) so beneficial?
Exercise, in itself, causes our body’s to increase blood flow to working muscles up to 500%, increasing amino-acid delivery to skeletal muscle by 650%! At the same time, cellular sensitivity is increased, enabling our muscles to increase the rate of the absorption of substrates and fuel. When high concentrations of amino-acids are present in the blood stream DURING exercise, the anabolic response brought about by exercise is GREATLY increased!
Designed to rapidly flood your muscles with amino-acids DURING your workout, fight the catabolic (muscle breakdown) effects of exercise, boost recovery, decrease muscle soreness and delay muscular fatigue.
IntrAbolic is NOT another simple,
INCOMPLETE BCAA Supplement
Our bodies need ALL of the NINE essential amino-acids (EAAs) to build muscle. So why are you settling for old school, incomplete amino-acid products that only supply you with the THREE Branch chain amino-acids (BCAAs)? While the BCAAs are very important, our bodies also require the other SIX EAAs to build muscle. IntrAbolic provides ALL the NINE EAAs coming from our hydrolyzed whey protein and is boosted with extra BCAAs coming from both the hydrolyzed whey protein and free-form BCAAs.
What needs and issues should be taken into account
when choosing the optimal intra-workout supplement?
How does IntrAbolic target and overcome these issues?
Issue One: During exercise, physiologically, it is NOT optimal to be digesting intact protein, such as whey or food. This will divert blood and energy AWAY from your working muscles to your gut which is exactly what you DON’T want. This is the primary reason why a regular intact protein like whey isolate, whey concentrate, milk protein or food should NOT be used intra-workout.
IntrAbolic solution: We address these issues by utilizing a unique CUSTOM whey protein hydrolysate (WPH) exclusively found ONLY in IntrAbolic. Our custom WPH has undergone a high degree of hydrolysis, which breakdown large proteins into smaller fragments, called peptides. Our custom WPH supplies 70-80% of its peptides, in the shortest and most rapidly absorbed form, which are the low-molecular weight, di-and tripeptides, we refer to as IntrAbolic-Peptides™. Our bodies contain transporters in our guts called PEPT1 which specifically transport di-and tripeptides. Due to the fact that di-and tripeptides do not have to undergo the same slow digestive process as regular protein, they can bypass the disadvantages that intact proteins possess.
Buyer Beware: All hydrolyzed proteins are NOT created equal. The benefits from hydrolyzed proteins come from the content its di-and tripeptides. There are large variances in the percentage of hydrolysis whey protein can undergo. If the percentage of hydrolysis is low, the percentage of the beneficial di-and tripeptides will be low to nonexistent. A low degree of hydrolysis will leave you with a high amount of inferior polypeptides and little to NO di-and tripeptides. Check the supplement facts panels of other products that contain hydrolyzed protein and look for the percentage of di-and tripeptides they contain. If they do not disclose the percentage of di-and tripeptides on the label, be warned they may be very low or even nonexistent. IntrAbolic contains an industry high of 70-80% di-and tripeptides, listed on our label.
