Multiple investigations suggest that a higher protein intake has a significant impact on strength and performance. Even endurance athletes can benefit from a higher level of protein intake. Adding protein to a carbohydrate-rich beverage during exhaustive endurance exercise suppresses markers of muscle damage and decreases muscle soreness after your workout. In addition, combining protein and carbohydrate consumption during a prolonged bout of endurance exercise promotes a higher whole-body net protein balance.
Our Tri-Release Protein contains a blend of three types of protein: whey protein isolate, which is rapidly digested, egg white protein, which has an intermediate rate of digestion, and milk protein concentrate (a source of casein), which is digested slowly. Protein variety is key for immediate and sustained amino acid release. Our product also contains patented Velositol®§, for sustained muscle protein synthesis [MPS].
MPS is a normal part of metabolism the body goes through to either build or rebuild proteins in the body. Muscle growth occurs when rates of MPS exceed that of muscle breakdown. This is important because if the rate of muscle breakdown is faster than muscle protein synthesis, loss of lean mass can occur. This can hurt performance outcomes and worsen overall health.
Velositol® is a patented amylopectin chromium complex designed to improve the efficiency of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) to maximize MPS when combined with protein. In a clinical study, researchers showed that MPS was enhanced when participants used Velositol® after exercise compared to protein alone (1). Chromium supports fat, protein, and carbohydrate metabolism in the body.
Our Tri-Release Protein is also a good option for those looking to lose weight or add more protein to their diets as well as those who work out regularly. Increased levels of protein can support weight loss goals by maintaining lean muscle mass and increasing satiety (2). This product can assist in the building of lean muscle when combined with regular resistance training and a healthy balanced diet.
If weight loss is your goal, this protein will not derail your weight loss progress. As part of a healthy lifestyle designed to support weight loss, consuming targeted amounts of protein throughout the day can support weight loss efforts, help keep you satisfied, and improve body composition (3). In a clinical research study using our products, researchers found that consuming a diet higher in protein helped participants lose more body fat, more body weight, and more abdominal fat all while maintaining lean body mass (4) †.
Tri-Release Protein is Informed-Sport certified, meaning every batch is tested by an independent laboratory under strict specifications to detect substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Informed-Sport also ensures that products have been manufactured to high quality and purity standards, which is in line with our no-compromise commitment.
