The 4 in 1 Breakdown
Whey Protein Isolate is THE preferred and superior form of protein for athletes, and is the ONLY type of whey in Collagen Sport™ - no whey concentrates or blends. The highlight of whey isolate is its richness in essential and branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAA's are especially beneficial because they're metabolized directly by the muscles. NeoCell's whey isolate is developed using selective ion-exchange technology. This process removes sugar, lactose, and fat, and then extracts crucial protein fractions such as the primary functional and nutritional proteins alpha- and beta- lactoglobulins. The result is a highly effective and bio-active performance protein.
Athletes all too often do not supplement their connective tissues until injury occurs or deterioration sets in, resulting in the typical aches and pains of exercise. The body's connective tissues (like ligaments, tendons and muscles) are made up of collagen. Super Collagen™ 1&3 is particularly rich in the amino acids glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine which support flexibility, recovery, and strength. Super Collagen® 1&3 undergoes an absorption-enhancing process using enzyme hydrolyzation to maximize bioavailability. Super Collagen 1&3 is also an excellent anti-aging supplement for the hair, skin and nails.
L-glutamine is crucial in the muscle recovery process. Exercise can burn through your body's glutamine reserves, which can result in your body robbing glutamine from your muscles. The special chemical structure of L-glutamine makes it the primary amino acid that drives nitrogen into your muscle cells for muscle synthesis and recovery. Exogenous amino acids overall are important for an increase of net muscle protein synthesis.
Each serving of Collagen Sport™ provides a good source of daily vitamins and minerals as well as the antioxidant power of Pomegranate extract. Increased activity results in higher oxidation in the body, which wreaks havoc on cells without counteraction with high quality antioxidants. NeoCell's pomegranate extract is standardized to 70% ellagic acid, an extraordinary antioxidant that fights cell-damaging free radicals generated during exercise.
