Whey protein is a very high quality protein, which, along with casein, makes up the major proteins in milk. Whey contains all the essential amino acids and therefore scores very high on all methods used to score protein quality. In fact, whey protein is superior to all other sources of protein when you consider how much of the nitrogen (protein is about 16% nitrogen) is retained in the body relative to the amount of nitrogen absorbed. This criterion method of protein quality is referred to as the biological value (BV), and whey protein has the highest score of 104. A growing body of literature shows that appropriate use of whey protein can maximize muscle size and strength gains from resistance training in addition to having other health- promoting effects.
Amino 2002 delivers these benefits by providing several kinds of amino acid packed wheys in one tablet. The first type of whey in Amino 2002 is whey hydrosolate. A hydrolysate is a protein where long chains of amino acids have been broken up either into little-bitty groups of amino acids or freestanding amino acids. Taking your proteins in a hydrolyzed state means that a lot of the work's already been done for you. As such, these types of proteins are assimilated much more quickly than other, non-hydrolyzed types. During your post- workout period especially you'll want a fast-acting, easily digestible protein like a whey hydrosolate. The second type is a combination of micro and ultrafiltrated whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate. They're types of whey that have been concentrated from various dairy sources.
Whey protein isolate contains more protein with less fat and lactose per serving. Whey protein concentrates contain approximately 80% protein and little fat and lactose. Whey protein isolate is the highest yield of protein currently available, and is loaded with amino acids, including branched chain amino acids, which help them bond together better. Amino 2002’s protein combination tastes great and is extremely digestible. Because of its speedy digestion the amino acids aid in rebuilding the body. Whey protein contains about 10% immunoglobulin proteins which helps support the body's immune system. Also it contains the highest concentration (24-25%) of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA's) of any protein source. Because of its chemical properties, Amino 2002 tablets are easiest to absorb into your muscles. A benefit of whey protein isolate is that it has the ability to enhance endogenous Glutathione production, which is the body’s most powerful naturally occurring antioxidant. Whey contains Quadra peptides, which are shown to have pain- relieving effects. It helps decrease the sensation of muscle soreness following an intense workout. It is also used to repair and build muscles. Studies have shown whey protein isolate to have immune boosting properties.
