ANTIAGING NUTRITION - MUSCLE BUILDING PROTEINS

 

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
  • Fasting and undereating
  • 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
  • Stress
  • Indigestion
  • Excessive intake of dietary fiber
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies

 

Protein Supplementation

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 are taken.
