Combat Protein Powder 4lb by MusclePharm
COMBAT POWDER is MusclePharm's technologically advanced Protein Superfood. Athletes and Bodybuilders have long known that high-quality protein is the key to building and maintaining lean muscle, while supporting a healthy body composition and fueling fat loss. Protein is the most important macronutrient for muscle growth, mass and power. High-quality protein may support muscle growth, recovery, and the integrity and health of all body tissues. Active bodies require MORE high quality protein for optimal performance - COMBAT POWDER was designed to meet that need.
1. Feeds the anabolic and recovery pathways within the body to support muscle growth, fuel recovery and maximize the body's adaptive response to hard training.
2. 25 grams of the high-quality PROTEIN BLEND, in a great tasting, easy-to-mix shake.
3. Added Digestive Blend to ease absorption.
Combat's Powerful Protein Sources
Digestive Enzyme Blend:
Digestive enzymes break down food along the digestive tract so that nutrients can be absorbed into the bloodstream. COMBAT™ contains 60mg of a Digestive Enzyme Blend to aid in the digestion and absorption of the key muscle-building proteins contained herein. The body cannot absorb what it cannot break down. The added Digestive Enzyme Blend supports the utilization of COMBAT's muscle-building protein component.
Added BCAAs and Glutamine:
The Branched Chain Amino Acids, L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine, are the most critical of the essential amino acids for the maintenance, repair and building of muscle tissue. The BCAA's (especially L-Leucine) have been shown to support protein synthesis and therefore, muscle growth. L-Glutamine is an amino acid that has been surmised to support healthy immune system function. L-Glutamine has also been suggested to help with recovery. Together, the extra Branched Chain Amino Acids and the added Glutamine in COMBAT fortify the muscle-building and recovery properties of this, our most technologically advanced protein super food available.
What is Combat Powder?
Combat Powder is a precision-engineered matrix of three different types of whey protein (hydrolysate, isolate, and concentrate), along with egg albumin and micellar casein. Because each of these distinct sources of protein digest at varying rates, not only are amino acids rushed into the bloodstream within minutes of consumption, but they are continuously fed into the body for up to 8 hours!* Combined with added BCAA's, digestive enzymes, and extra glutamine, Combat Powder is the ultimate protein super-food!
When should I use Combat Powder?
The most important times are immediately upon awakening, right after training, and just before bed, as these are vital periods for the initiation of the growth process. However, Combat can also be used at ANY time of day as a substitute for whole food protein.
Why not use just whey? Why use a blend like Combat Powder?
While whey is one of the most important and popular proteins around, it has its limitations and is best used as part of a blend of proteins. Whey protein is digested very quickly, which causes a rapid rise in blood amino acids. While this seems like a great thing, there remains a problem. These amino acids are cleared from the system rapidly, which is excellent for the short term, but does not cover the period of time between meals. However, with the addition of egg albumin and micellar casein you will slowly trickle feed amino acids to your cells over a period of up to 8 hours!* This makes COMBAT our ultimate anabolic and anticatabolic protein matrix!
Will I have stomach issues while using Combat Powder?
COMBAT contains some of the purest proteins currently available and is very low in lactose. Additionally, a special digestive blend has been added to the formula to enhance digestion and assimilation of the protein constituents. For most, COMBAT provides no stomach discomfort whatsoever.
