XBrain’s Protein Shots
XBrain’s Protein Shots are a revolutionary solution to post workout supplements. The period immediately after a workout is the most essential time for muscle gain. Exercise causes a brief peak in growth hormone and testosterone, which induce muscle repair and growth. However, new muscle needs amino acids. If you don’t have high concentrations of amino acids in your system after your exercise, you will not gain the full benefits from your effort. This is where XBrain’s Protein Shots come in. Created with the best Protein complexes in the world, and without harmful artificial flavours or sweeteners, the Protein Shots are the most convenient way of making sure that your body has the amino acids to fuel optimum recovery and muscle gain after exercise.
XBrain’s Protein Shots deliver a 20g mixture of whey protein and hydrolysed beef collagen. The two proteins have different amino acid profiles and work synergistically to provide you will all the muscle building blocks that your body requires to repair and grow muscles.
Collagen is the most common protein in the body. Collagen contains almost all of the amino acids that make up our proteins. It is a particularly rich source of proline and glycine. It provides all of the essential amino acids, which the body cannot synthesise itself and which must be obtained from the diet. It is a good source of glycine and arginine, the precursors of creatine.
Collagen is the major protein found in connective tissue, and therefore in joints. Taking collagen in your postworkout supplement will not only provide you with amino acids for muscle growth but also for connective tissue repair, helping protect your joints after the incredible stress that exercise puts on them.
Whey proteins are a very good source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), especially leucine. Numerous scientific studies show just how effective BCAAs are in inducing protein synthesis and causing muscle hypertrophy after exercise. This is because leucine is not just a building block for proteins it is also a signalling molecule in the cellular nutrient sensor mTOR pathway. High levels of leucine signal to the body that general nutrient levels are high, and cells switch on maximum protein synthesis capacity. In muscle cells, enhanced protein synthesis results in the laying down of extra muscle fibres and in optimal muscle growth.
Most postworkout supplements contain either collagen or whey protein. Each of these has its advantages but does not fulfil all the bodies needs. By combining whey and collagen XBrain’s Protein Shots will send your muscle growth into overdrive. You work very hard during your training sessions. You might as well make sure that your work is not lost and that you provide your muscle cells with all the amino acids needed to repair and grow!
Crucially the proteins are hydrolysed, i.e broken down into very short peptides and free amino acids. This is essential for their bioavailability. You simply don’t have the time to wait for your body to digest and absorb whole proteins after your workout. Your muscles need the amino acids right away! Hydrolysed proteins are absorbed very rapidly, so if you take a Protein Shot straight after your workout amino acid concentrations in muscle cells will peak at the same time as you experience a peak in anabolic hormones, allowing for maximum muscle gain.
Unlike many of the generic protein supplements on the market XBrain’s PostWorkout Shots will not pollute your body with unwanted fillers and additivess. Like all of XBrain’s products they are guaranteed to be GMO and artificial sweetener free. The delicious taste is due to the healthy, natural herbal sweetener, stevia. The shots are also remarkably low in calories, at only 95 Calories per serving.
XBrain’s Protein Shots are also incredibly convenient. No measuring and mixing of messy powders, just a neat quick shot. Each shot contains enough protein, at 20g, to ensure that your muscles can repair and grow at their maximum rate after a workout. The mixture of two different types of protein supplements, whey and collagen, ensures that all the amino acids you need are covered. The proteins are hydrolysed to ensure they are highly bioavailable using a gentle enzymatic process, which preserves the full nutritional value of the amino acids. No matter how intense your workout, XBrain’s Protein Shots will take care of all of your postworkout needs.
Of course you are not limited to taking the Shots only after you workout. They are an excellent way of adding protein to your diet whenever you feel like having a snack.
