Optimum Nutrition's (ON's) Whey MRP combines the many advantages of pure whey proteins with the taste and texture of your favorite fast food milkshakes. Taste it and you'll have a tough time believing that something this nutritious can be this delicious. But trust us, it is. At the core of ON's Whey MRP is the same proprietary, time-tested blend of whey protein isolates, concentrates, and hydrolysates found in ON's best-selling 100% Whey Protein. In fact, these are the only proteins that you'll find in ON's Whey MRP. Unlike other meal replacement products (MRPs) which often contain whole milk and/or soy proteins, ON's Whey MRP uses only the highest quality whey proteins. As literally millions and millions of satisfied 100% Whey Protein customers will attest, quality whey proteins are so good, they should be tops on every athlete's list.
Here are just a few reasons why:
» Highest Scoring - Not all proteins are created equal. Some are more difficult to digest and absorb. Many are low in one or more of the essential amino acids. Others are poorly assimilated by the body. Protein scoring systems including biological value (BV), protein digestibility corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS), and protein efficiency ratio (PER) are often used to help classify various protein types based upon amino acid patterns, digestibility, and the degree to which the body can actually use the protein for growth and rebuilding. Of all of the proteins out there, whey proteins rank highest in all measures of protein quality. Whey protein is rich in all eight essential amino acids, rapidly digested, and easy assimilated by the body. Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)
- Whey protein is one of nature's best sources of the three branched chain amino acids:
» leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAAs are unique in that they can be directly metabolized by muscle tissues to serve as an important fuel source during strenuous physical activity. Unique Microfractions - Whey proteins are actually comprised of several smaller proteins or peptides called microfractions. Among other things, scientists believe that these microfractions may aid with appetite control and act as powerful antioxidants, making them potentially valuable to athletes and dieters alike. Glutamine & Glutamine Precursors - Comprising over 60% of the total amino acids in the skeletal muscle pool and over 20% of total circulating amino acids, glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. Though glutamine is considered a conditionally essential amino acid (CAA), stressful conditions like extreme physical exertion may exceed the body's ability to synthesize it from other compounds. When this occurs, plasma glutamine levels may fall and the immune system can be suppressed. ON's Whey MRP is a great source of this important amino acid with naturally occurring glutamine and glutamine precursors accounting for over 16% of the total protein per serving. Rapid Delivery - Whey proteins are some of the fastest digesting proteins on the planet. This tremendous attribute becomes particularly useful a short time before a workout when you want the nutrients in your system - not in your stomach. Rapid amino acid delivery is also key immediately following your workout, when your liver and muscles are primed for recovery and glycogen resynthesis. As you'd expect, ON's Whey MRP is quick, convenient, and precise. No measuring, minimal clean up, and always just the right amount of calories, protein, quality carbs, and satiating lipids. Additionally, ON's Whey MRP p:" ":y Value for dietary fiber in every serving.
