Milk proteins – especially whey protein – are the most popular bodybuilding proteins, no question about it. Also, they are among the highest quality protein sources. Determination of the nutritional efficiency of protein in the diet is in most cases based on estimating the extent to which dietary protein nitrogen is absorbed and retained by the body and is able to balance daily nitrogen losses. Net Protein Utilisation (NPU) is the percentage of ingested nitrogen that is retained in the body, and the Biological Value (BV) gives the percentage of absorbed nitrogen that is retained. Biological Value is the product of NPU and digestibility. Whey protein has good digestibility and amino acid composition, thus it’s Biological Value is great compared to other dietary protein sources like meat, fish, eggs or soy.
“Anabolic” is the physiological term for metabolic processes in the body that build up something. Dietary proteins are the source of nitrogen and indispensable amino acids, which the body requires for tissue growth and maintenance. Therefore, Anabolic Whey’s protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass, and also to the maintenance of normal bones*. Proteins from milk are so-called complete proteins, because they provide the body with all necessary amino acids, including the 9 amino acids (i.e. Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine) that are considered essential for life, because the body cannot synthesize them. Anabolic Whey is a source of calcium. Calcium contributes to normal muscle function, neurotransmission and energy-yielding metabolism, and is needed also for the maintenance of normal bones.
Mix 1 serving (30g) in 250 ml water, milk or any other liquid a day. The product can be used with any meal to boost its protein content, or by itself.
