ANTIAGING NUTRITION - MUSCLE BUILDING PROTEINS
Proteins are made up of 22 amino acids, nine of which
are essential and must be obtained from supplements.
Dietary proteins are divided into two kinds of proteins:
complete proteins, which include all essential aminos
and incomplete proteins, which are deficient in one
or more essential amino acids.
There are also conditionally essential amino acids,
which play major roles in performance, recovery and
reactions to stress.
Many protein-evaluating systems appear to be quite
misleading in their ability to estimate protein capacity
to promote muscle growth.
BV tests are biased by tightly controlled environments,
small servings (100 to 200mg per kilogram of body weight)
and discounting genetic predispositions to protein absorption
and utilisation. All this makes it quite difficult to
calculate an effective antiaging program protein level.
Muscle building exercise programs have higher than
normal metabolic requirement for certain amino acids
such as, tryptophan, tyrosine, methionine-sAME or lysine-carnitine.
These amino acids support the production of stress hormones
and energy compounds needed to perform under extreme
mental and physical stress.
Protein Deficiencies' Effect on Growth
Protein synthesis for anabolic purposes requires all
essential amino acids in the right proportions. Consumption
of incomplete protein will most likely suppress growth
by suppressing critical metabolic functions necessary
for the repair and build up of tissues including muscles.
To understand fully what the best growth-promoting
protein sources are, much more research and clinical
studies may be needed.
Factors That Effect Protein Utilization for Growth
Protein utilization, not protein consumption is the
key to growth.
Real-Life Protein BV is enhanced by:
- Small servings of proteins
- High calorie intake
- Food combinations
- Raw (unprocessed) state of food
- Free-form amino acid supplementation
- Probiotics and enzymes
Protein BV is suppressed by:
- Large servings of proteins
- Low calorie intake
- Mono diets (based on one source of food)
- Food processing
- Protein exposure to high heat
- Excessive intake of dietary fiber
and mineral deficiencies
When engaging in muscle
building exercise programs, not only do you require
precise amounts of protein at optimal times, you also
need certain amino acids to digest and assimilate the
protein into muslce building tissue. Attempting to achieve
this using normal foods is extremely difficult, if at
all possible. Using a
protein supplement designed specifically for this
purpose ensures that the correct amounts of all elements
