When we train we know that a series of traumas are created in the muscle tissue directly related to the intensity of our training. And if we train "hard" to reach our goals, these lacerations, real traumas, must be repaired as soon as possible. The breakdown of muscle Fibre and subsequent reconstruction converges in a process known as "protein turnover". If we want to rebuild as soon as possible strong muscles ready to face the most intense workouts, we must provide for the reconstruction by providing "plastic" material suitable for the "regenerating fire" of the protein synthesis that has been induced. The priority is that: winning over muscle breakdown = catabolism, which is the basis of muscle reconstruction and growth,
The availability of the type of "plastic" protein material strongly influences the effectiveness of this reconstruction, as providing a blood supply rich in amino acids (and glucose) during and especially after exercise means further increasing the Energy of protein synthesis. .
If we train intensely, however, our body is not particularly "ready" to eat solid food, digest it and absorb it. It would also take a long time to get amino acids to the "needy" muscles. Too much if we want to optimize recovery and promote maximum anabolic response. A solid meal then, in addition to digestive limitations, is not even practical to store and transport. Furthermore, as soon as we finish training we are then in the grip of a state
basically "adrenaline", inflamed, which often compromises our appetite. But we cannot fail to exploit and not get fundamental nutritional elements to muscle growth.
Today the most advanced science and production technologies offer us a series of elements of protein origin with extraordinary biological value and the possibility of having them in the form of "hydrolyzed" Protein, predigested, broken down into very small peptides ready to reach our muscles extremely quickly. without having to undergo demanding digestive processes.
Infusion-ELITE was born as one of the protagonists of the new line for advanced athletes " Neil Hill Approved", to provide very quickly the best of the amino acid-protein material in terms of quality and biological value to the athlete who needs the fastest and most efficient muscle recovery possible, thanks to the presence of a protein blend of several highly digestible sources and rapid absorption, ideal precisely for the phase immediately following training, when our body is still in "alarm", not "ready" to eat and absorb what it needs. But if we want to optimize the intensity of the results as well , we need to provide what our muscles need to grow as soon as possible.The concept behind this amazing new recovery protein supplement is to deliver this valuable material as soon as possible into the blood and get to the muscles in a short time and that it continues for a certain amount of time, thus leading to a new level of effectiveness in importance, widely confirmed post-workout protein supplementation.
Infusion-ELITE provides quickly and without burdening digestion, protein material of the best biological value to be supplied to the synthesis of new Protein, to start the muscle reconstruction processes as soon as possible, thanks to the combination of various protein mixtures at various release levels, a "blend" based on sources with rapid, ultra-rapid and more gradual absorption:
Whey protein isolate obtained from cross-flow microfiltration and microfiltration (Volactive® UltraWhey XP): 45%
Egg white protein: 25%
Hydrolyzed from casein (PeptoPro®): 20%
Hydrolyzed from whey isolate (Optipep® 90 DH4): 10%
Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) obtained from cross-flow microfiltration which is the best that can be technologically obtained for the removal of lactose and lipids from whey, allowing an average protein content of 90%, while allowing to maintain the integrity of the protein matrix that is not denatured, ensuring the presence of bioactive fractions that determine the quality and value of this protein source. The isolated Protein obtained by cross-flow microfiltration are known to be easily digestible and ensure rapid amino acid assimilation, which correlates with the presence of "insulinogenic" amino acids (arginine, phenylalanine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, valine,
Egg white Protein remain among the absolute best protein sources for the human body, which have the highest biological value, in the absence of carbohydrates and fats. Protein that are digested and used by the body in a practically complete way but which, unlike whey Protein, have longer digestion, absorption and release times, as well as greater satiating Energy.
"PeptoPro®" casein hydrolyzates are derivatives of casein (slow digestion milk protein) subjected to enzymatic hydrolysis that splits the peptide bonds of "whole" Protein making them molecules of much smaller size, "the peptides" in a concentration very high (about 80%) as small di- and tripeptides, very small amino acid fractions of the size below 300 Daltons (therefore absolutely hypoallergenic) which are absorbed in the intestine in an exceptionally rapid way compared to any other protein version, through a different and faster transport carrier than that of the same amino acids in free form.
The co-ingestion in parallel of hydrolyzed PeptoPro® caseins together with a source of carbohydrates significantly amplifies the insulinogenic effect in favor of a more efficient storage of muscle glycogen, which shows even more how "ideal" this source can be in the post work out.
To enrich and enhance the effects on protein synthesis of this "optimal" protein blend with very small peptides for the fastest and most efficient reconstruction of muscle tissue, there is another excellent protein hydrolyzate, Optipep® 90 DH4 raw material of excellent value organic derived from a high degree of enzymatic hydrolysis of isolated whey Protein, certified Grass-Fed ™ which further confirms the quality of origin of the production. Thus, in addition to the hydrolysates obtained from casein, we will further strengthen the presence of small amino acid peptides to obtain a massive strengthening action on protein synthesis, and above all extremely rapid.
