Sports Protein is a fruit flavoured blend of whey protein isolate and hydrolysed collagen isolate that provides you with 30 grams of protein with zero carbohydrates or fat. Unlike other milk based protein drinks, Sports protein is easily absorbed and ideal to take before or after exercise.
Sports Protein is ideal for any athlete who either wishes to prevent muscle breakdown and/or who wishes to promote recovery of muscle. With the appropriate training, Sports Protein can also help lead to an increase in muscle mass (not fat!!).
Sports Protein is particularly useful for those of you who do not like milk-based drinks commonly associated with protein shakes etc. Additionally please note that tendons, joints etc have significant levels of collagen, and there is evidence becoming available that taking collagen helps to maintain healthy joints.
Sports protein can be taken at any time of the day. Due to its content of rapidly absorbing whey protein isolate, sports protein is ideal before or after exercise to supply the body with fast absorbing amino acids.
Athletes need more protein than sedentary individuals. Studies have clearly demonstrated that the timing and type of protein intake is also crucial. Endurance exercise increases use of amino acids for energy, and this can result in increased muscle protein breakdown. Resistance exercise does not really increase use of amino acid as energy BUT does need amino acids to promote muscle protein recovery after training. Weight training itself promotes protein synthesis but without correct nutrition this synthesis is slow. So to influence muscle protein gains or merely to recover properly, protein (amino acids) MUST be provided as soon as possible after exercise.
There is a developing literature base on the use of collagen for improving joint function (since collagen is an important constituent of joints such as the knee, shoulder, hip and so on) and also collagen as an anti-ageing product.
