What’s in ProBlend 5®?
ProBlend 5® is an advanced, sustained-release protein blend combining five premium protein sources: whey protein, casein protein, egg white protein, amino acids, essential fatty acids and the enzymes and probiotics DigeZyme® and Lactospore®.
Whey Protein Considered the gold standard in protein, we have included over 34% whey protein concentrate and 16% whey protein isolate. These premium fast release protein sources are rapidly digested to kick start the recovery process and deliver the essential amino acids needed to promote lean muscle growth and repair.
Casein Protein We have included over 25% Micellar Casein. This pure casein protein is produced to ensure that it’s ‘micellar’ structure remains intact, making it the slowest absorbing available on the market. Micellar casein has been shown to keep amino acid levels elevated for up to seven hours after consumption. To support the slow release blend we have also added calcium caseinate, a 90% casein protein which when ingested forms a ‘gel’ in the stomach meaning that it is digested and absorbed much slower than other protein sources such as whey.
Egg White Protein With two premium fast release proteins and two ultra-slow release proteins, we have completed our protein blend with the addition of 80% egg white protein, which is digested at a medium rate.
Amino Acids We have included the amino acids glutamic acid and leucine. These two premium grade amino acids play important roles in protein synthesis to promote the growth recovery and repair of muscle tissue.
Essential Fatty Acids ProBlend 5® includes 1.5g of flax seed powder which delivers ALA omega 3 essential fatty acids to support heart and cognitive health.
DigeZyme® and Lactospore®- Finally we have included 50mg of DigeZyme® digestive enzymes and 150 million spores of Lactospore® probiotics to help improve the digestion and availability of the ingredients whilst promoting a gut health.
What are the performance benefits of ProBlend 5®?
ProBlend 5® is ideal during the day between meals, post-workout and before bed to keep your muscles fuelled with vital amino acids. Protein is essential for growth and repair of all cells, including muscle cells, and it is therefore necessary in order to experience training adaptations. Recent research has shown multi source protein blends to be more effective at promoting protein synthesis than single protein sources alone.
Highest protein levels With 46.7g of protein per 60g serving ProBlend 5® provides higher levels of protein than any competitor protein blend on the market.
No proprietary blends Unlike competitor products which use proprietary blends to hide the fact they are using low levels of premium ingredients, GoNutrition™ is the first sports nutrition company to fully declare levels of all active ingredients in it’s formulas, including their percentage inclusions.
Advanced protein blend The majority of protein blends use milk protein concentrate (MPC) as the primary ‘slow release’ source. MPC is in fact made up of 80% Casein and 20% Whey meaning formulas can be left heavy on the fast release side. We have used the premium, pure casein protein Micellar Casein 85 to ensure an ultra-slow release which fuels muscles with amino acids for up to 7 hours.
Added Leucine Now considered the most important amino acid for protein synthesis, we have added Leucine to ProBlend 5®. This premium grade amino acid is often missing from more dated protein formulas.
How good is ProBlend 5®?
As with all our premium formulas, ProBlend 5® is developed by our in-house team using the latest nutritional research. All our ingredients are sourced direct from leading European suppliers and must pass our rigorous checks before they are blended, packed and sealed in our industry leading production facility. We perform regular spot-checks and independent product testing to ensure the product you receive is of the highest standards.
What goes well with Problend 5?
To support lean muscle goals we would recommend Creatine Monohydrate taken alongside your Problend 5 shake. Post workout add a fast acting carbohydrate such as Maltodextrin which will replenish glycogen stores and help deliver the protein and amino acids to the working muscle where they promote growth and recovery.
