It is common knowledge that in order to build muscle tissue you need to consume adequate amounts of high quality protein. CNP Professional recommend that 1.5g of protein per pound of bodyweight should be consumed for those wishing to gain quality muscle. Try to achieve this by consuming solid foods and you'll find it becomes a difficult and impractical task. For example, take someone weighing 200lbs: Their protein intake would need to be 300g. When you consider that a typical chicken breast or tin of tuna delivers approx 30 grams of protein, that would mean '10' chicken breasts or '10' tins of tuna a day. Also in today's fast track life style, many people turn to poor nutritional fast foods or even miss a meal. For these reasons the introduction of protein supplementation into many diets, from the health conscious individual to the serious athlete has now become a normal but important feature. CNP Professional's Pro-Peptide is a perfect answer to this problem. CNP Professional's Pro-Peptide is an advanced blend of bioactive fast and slow proteins (Whey protein high fraction concentrate, Hydrolysed whey, Egg white and micellar casein) that provide both anabolic and anticatabolic properties, meaning less wasted protein and better protein utilisation. Also included are probiotic organisms (friendly bacteria), which assist in protein metabolism leading to improved nitrogen retention (the perfect environment for muscle growth) and maintaining a healthier digestive system. A high concentration of peptide-bonded glutamine ensures a superior absorption of this vital amino acid. Pro-Peptide is low in fat and lactose allowing further ease of digestion, is the most advanced protein supplement on the market today and is ideal for the health conscious individual to the serious athlete. Pro-Peptide contains: Bifidus, acidophilus, yoghurt organisms, which is the healthy bacteria needed to promote an efficient digestive system, which will enable you to metabolise more nutrients. Micellar casein (milk protein) is an undenatured slow released protein, medically proven to be anti-catabolic (stopping muscle breakdown). Whey protein high fraction concentrate is an undenatured fast released protein containing higher levels of growth factors than normal whey protein concentrates. Hydrolysed Whey is the most digestible whey protein, which is partially pre-digested for better absorption allowing the body to use it's complete range of amino acids for faster absorption and recovery. This is the first of the fast and slow proteins. Whey protein is a by-product from the manufacture of cheese due to the heat-treating of milk (curds and whey). A lot of the growth factors and the amino acid cysteine become deficient because of this process. CNP's proteins are cold processed Peptide Bonded Glutamine is an amino acid that promotes a healthy gut, increases growth hormone and is the highest amino acid found in human muscle (It would be very hard to get enough glutamine in the system from food alone). Amino acids are absorbed by molecular weight and peptide bonded amino acids are heavier than free form. Egg White has a high level of the amino acid cysteine, which is a key amino acid in maintaining muscle mass and helps protect the liver. Cysteine (Non Essential Amino Acid) plays an important role in the production of Glutathione (a small protein), which is the bodies primary anti-oxidant, which neutralises free radicals and enhances the immune system which is important in the manufacture of muscle growth.
