ISOGAINER STRATEGY: Full Strength Lean Mass Acceleration Formula
Gaining quality muscle can be a challenge. The solution? Tweak nutrition in two critical areas: 1) increase caloric intake above calories burned, and 2) add calories in the correct ratios of protein to carbohydrates to fats. Meeting this challenge, Nutrabolics has designed IsoGainer, a convenient, easily digestible, high-calorie food source that delivers a multi-stage ultra-premium protein blend, designer carbohydrates and health-promoting essential fatty acids. Coupled with intense training and strict eating, IsoGainer provides the nutritional backbone necessary to experience accelerated gains in lean mass.
ISOGAINER TACTICS: Increase Energy Resources to Spare Protein for Maintenance, Repair, and Improvements in Lean Tissue
Creating an energy surplus is key to making gains in lean mass. Basically, when calories consumed don’t fulfill energy requirements, the body goes after stored bodyfat to meet the extra demand. This energy deficit can be good for losing excess bodyfat; however, “hard gainers” of new muscle likely use amino acids from existing muscle to meet any extra energy demands. Thus, lean mass increases suffer, because, biologically, meeting energy demands is more important than building muscle. The fix is an influx of fuels to meet energy requirements so proteins are used to maintain, repair and improve lean mass. The Research & Development Team at Nutrabolics developed the solution - IsoGainer to prompt a “nutrient-sparing effect.” by providing essential fats that spare carbohydrates, which, in turn, spares protein so athletes achieve growth
ISOGAINER’S INTEGRALS: Sequentially Release Calories, Prompt Nutrient Sparing, Stimulate Protein Availability and Deposition
1) Cross-Flow Micro-Filtered Whey Protein Isolate supplies the highest levels of di-, tri-, and oligo-whey peptides, including over 10% immunoglobulins (vital antibodies support a balanced, healthy immune response).
2) Whey Protein Hydrolysate is Whey Protein Isolate that has been pre-digested through an enzymatic process and is assimilated into the body more quickly than other, non-hydrolyzed types. This process breaks the protein down into its smaller amino acids and reduces the amount of time that the protein stays in the stomach, thus making the protein more available for the muscles to begin using rapidly without further degradation by digestion. This makes Whey Protein Hydrolysate well-suited for use post- workout and exercise because of the increased bioavailability of the predigested protein.
3) Native micellar casein is the “foundation” of the formula. In several studies, micellar casein, has proven to maximize net nitrogen retention, absorption efficiency, and protein synthesisiv, v, vi, vii, viii. Micellar casein behaves like tissue protein (chicken, beef, etc.), because it congeals in the stomach and the breakdown process elicits a time-release effect on protein synthesis. In that respect, IsoGainer performs much like whole food and delivers a slow, sustained release of amino acids into the bloodstream. This slow, six-hour dispersion period increases total protein synthesis and can be a valuable adjunct to a structured diet and vigorous weight training regimenix.
