THE MASS-PEAK ADVANTAGE: To be a great athlete you need to be able to sustain high forces (strength) at high speeds (speed X strength = power). Bigger muscles can generate more power because they are capable of producing more force at a given speed. The higher your training intensity, the faster you deplete your body of carbohydrates, amino acids, fat, water and electrolytes. Your body's nutritional priorities are replacing carbohydrates and amino acids. Failure to replace carbohydrates can cause your body to catabolize (break down) muscle tissue resulting in serious losses of muscle mass, strength, speed and power. Stimulating Muscle Protein Synthesis (The Making of Muscle): MASS-PEAK contains the world's fastest absorbing proteins. Studies suggest that the ingestion of a fast-acting protein/amino acid supplement increases amino acid levels in systemic circulation where they are available for muscle protein anabolism (growth). The faster these amino acids rise in the blood, the greater the muscle building reaction. Replenishing Glycogen (Stopping Muscle Loss): MASS-PEAK contains low DE (Dextrose Equivalent) maltodextrin that have the most unique, intriguing qualities for post-workout carbohydrates. Complex yet very fast absorbing, they absorb up to 3 times greater and at the same speed of simple sugars. Studies suggest that the faster and greater that this release occurs, the faster it will suppress cortisol, restore glycogen and amino acids from protein back to muscles. This promotes muscle recovery and peak power output for your next workout.
