Time Released Whey Protein Combat powder delivers 25 grams of a high quality protein blend in a tasty, easy-to-mix shake. Combat powder was formulated specifically for athletes and active individuals, their bodies demand more—and more effective—protein. For decades, bodybuilders and athletes have known that a diet rich in quality protein is their ticket to maximizing muscle mass, strength, and power. However, consuming massive quantities of protein each day through food alone is difficult for most of us. This is why protein powders take up so much space on health food store shelves. The problem is that very few—if any—of these products truly set themselves apart from the rest. Most of the supplement companies out there seem to be okay with just delivering the status quo, the minimum. But ask yourself—as someone who is looking into supplements to beef up your protein intake—is this what you want from your protein supplement, the minimum? Do you give your workouts your minimum effort? We didn´t think so. Getting freakishly huge and ripped is anything but status quo Nobody understands this better than the MusclePharm Scientific Team. They painstakingly developed one of the most technologically advanced protein formulas out there. With a precision-engineered matrix that contains whey protein concentrates, hydrolysates and isolates—as well as egg albumen and micellar casein—Combat is a timed-released protein force! Since each distinct protein source in Combat digests at its own rate, amino acids don´t only flood into the bloodstream minutes after consumption, but they continuously "trickle feed" into your muscles for hours after you drink it! Advanced time released system To promote muscle growth and ensure proper protein utilization, MusclePharm scientists insisted on filling Combat Powder with a variety of protein blends that digest at varying rates. The added BCAAs and Glutamine support repair, recovery and nitrogen retention, and the digestive blend is fine tuned to promote nutrient utilization. Plus, they made sure it tasted great and mixes easily. Combat Powder truly is a step ahead in protein powder technology Whey Protein Isolate: Gram for gram, highest available yield of protein from any whey protein source. WPI digests and absorbs rapidly. Partially Hydrolyzed Whey Protein: Hydrolyzed whey is protein broken down into faster-absorbing peptides—it´s the fastest absorbing form of whey, hitting the bloodstream first. Hydrolyzed whey provides a rapid infusion of muscle-supporting amino acids. Micellar Casein: Micellar casein digests slowly, infusing valuable amino acids over the course of several hours. Some studies show this may protect muscle tissue from breakdown over time. Whey Protein Concentrate: Contains real subfractions such as alpha-lactoglobulins and lactoferrins. Egg Albumen: Highly bio available and tolerated by most individuals, egg albumen has a high BCAA content and arginine. Egg albumen supports hormone production and the muscle building process. Digestive Enzyme Blend: Digestive enzymes help break down food along the digestive tract so that nutrients can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Combat Powder contains 60mg of a digestive enzyme blend to aid in the digestion and absorption of key muscle-promoting proteins. The body cannot absorb what it cannot break down. Added BCAAs and Glutamine: The branched chain amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine are the most critical of the essential amino acid group for helping maintain, repair and build muscle tissue. L-Leucine especially has been shown to support protein synthesis and therefore, muscle growth. L-Glutamine is an amino acid that has been suggested to support healthy immune system function. Some suggest L-Glutamine may help with recovery. Together, the added branched chain amino acids and glutamine in Combat Powder promote muscle-building and recovery. Which is why MusclePharm are proud to call Combat their most technologically-advanced protein powder.
