Concentrated, efficacious protein / peptide blend scientifically designed to enhance amino acid delivery, fuel muscle-building nutrient uptake and support post-exercise anabolic recovery.
- A growing body of clinical research has shown that protein sources with varying digesting rates and amino acid compositions may prolong amino acids in circulation and, consequently, the anabolic response post-exercise. Iso-Peptide is a unique 10x10x10 blend (10g complex of whey and collagen peptides combined with 10g of whey protein isolate and 10g of micellar casein) to provide immediate as well as delayed sources of amino acids.
- Included within this anabolic matrix is the clinically studied whey-Leucine blend demonstrated to boost post-training insulin response and impact key genes in muscle tissue required for growth, recovery and repair.
- Leucine plays a critical role in stimulating muscle protein synthesis and serves as a potent activator of the mTOR signaling pathway, a master regulator of cell growth and many anabolic processes. A single scoop of Iso-Peptide contains 10g of Leucine and well over 10g of BCAAs to ensure muscles are receiving adequate stimulus for protein synthesis.
- Furthermore, each scoop also contains a clinical dose of Opuntia Fiscus Indica extract (OpunDia™; ‘Insuspike’), which has been shown to positively modulate insulin response, particularly when combined with Leucine post-exercise. Insulin is considered an anabolic hormone as it facilitates nutrient uptake in cells, including amino acids, and encourages the synthesis of protein.
- Iso-Peptide is more than just a protein; it's a balanced blend of high-quality proteins and peptides alongside key phytonutrients that support amino acid uptake and muscle anabolism.
