Optimum Nutrition Micronized Creatine Powder

Product Description

The importance of protein is well known among bodybuilders and athletes – they understand how important it is for building muscle, promoting strength, fueling recovery and supporting fat loss. When it comes to mass and power, protein is the single most important macro-nutrient, PERIOD!

To meet the high protein demands of bodybuilders and hard training athletes, MusclePharm has created COMBAT – an advanced Super Protein.

COMBAT provides 25 grams of protein in a complex of slow, medium and fast digesting sources for optimal digestion and assimilation rates.

Specifically, COMBAT utilizes 5 superior proteins, precisely combined to promote staggered absorption rates, thereby providing optimal muscle growth and complete recovery. In fact, COMBAT provides a full 8 hours of anabolic power from just one serving!

The COMBAT Protein Matrix:

• Whey Protein Isolate –The highest quality protein source available, this fast digesting protein is ideal for post workout – or first thing in the morning - when you need protein – now!

• Partially Hydrolyzed Whey Protein –This is the fastest digesting whey protein there is, largely due to the fact it’s already broken down into rapidly absorbing peptides for fast absorption. This dramatically increases its efficiency.

• Whey Protein Concentrate – This type of whey is actually closer to whole food protein sources than the other types of whey proteins, in fact whey concentrate contains subfractions from real food, such as alpha-lactoglobulins and lactoferrins, and these subfractions possess muscle growth and immune system benefits.

• Micellar Casein – This is a slow-digesting milk-based protein with strong anti-catabolic benefits, making this an ideal night-time protein, or a perfect choice when you’re working a long day with no easy access to food/protein powder.

• Egg Albumin – Long the gold standard of protein powders, Egg has good bio-availability and a high BCAA content, making it important to the process of muscle growth and recovery.

A question often asked is: why not simply use whey protein, given its superior quality? While whey is overall the highest quality protein source available, it has a few limitations, one being the fast digestion speed, which is great for post workout but not so great for other times of the day. By adding in egg albumin and micellar casein you end up with differing digestion speeds and ultimately a slow, even feed of amino acids to your muscles for up to 8 hours, providing maximum anabolic/anti-catabolic benefits!
