Ensuring the proper nutrition of physically active people becomes an increasingly challenging task for the manufacturers of dietary supplements. One of the reasons for this is the ever growing number of sport active people. As an increasing number of people are opting for a healthy and conscious diet there is increased difficulty when it comes to diagnosing food allergies or intolerances which may be associated with dairy products, such as whey protein fractions, which otherwise are a very valuable source of proteins.
GOLD BEEF-PRO® - TEIN is a response, from the Olimp Labs® specialists in food supplementation for active people, to the issue of the diversification of the sources of proteins in the dietary plans of physically active people who face the challenge of adding top quality bovine protein concentrates to their diets.
GOLD BEEF-PRO® - TEIN far exceeds the effects of the single-component bovine protein hydrolysates, which are so popular on the market. This premium product, enriched with proteins and bioactive peptides from bovine blood plasma exhibiting a broad spectrum anti-inflammatory action which, according to the following article and cited references, may significantly contribute to increased growth, quality, regeneration rate of muscle mass as well as better variables and volume of training. Beef protein hydrolysate used in the production process in pharmaceutical conditions, owing to its prior enzymatic treatment, is a source of rapidly assimilable free amino acids and peptides of low molecular weight which are absorbed directly into the bloodstream within about 15 minutes of ingestion. It considerably reduces the risk of catabolic states in muscle cells when they are under stress from exercise or during a period of temporary malnutrition.
What is more, GOLD BEEF-PRO® - TEIN is compliant with top standards for high protein products:
- it contains a full profile of proteinogenic amino acids with a significant share of essential amino acids (EAA), inclining branched-chain amino acid (BCAA), which exhibit strong anabolic and anti-catabolic action,
- it does not contain lactose and therefore it can be used by people whose quality of life is impaired as a result of a lactose allergy,
- it only has trace amounts of carbohydrates (less than 0.5 g) and fat (less than 1 g) per serving,
- it has a very high concentration of protein,
- it does not contain any contaminants which may accumulate in meat.
Additionally, GOLD BEEF-PRO™ - TEIN has a very high concentration of:
- L-arginine (Arg). Although L-arginine is a relatively exogenous amino acid, its internal biosynthesis cannot compensate for insufficient supply with food in conditions of increased demand1,2 such as intense physical exercise or weakening of the body as a result of an accident or a disease.
It has been proven that L-arginine improves the synthesis of growth factors (polyamines) involved in the tissue growth process and, as shown by clinical trials, it promotes protein synthesis in the body. Together with glycine and L-methionine, it is also involved in the synthesis of creatine. Scientific literature also reports that Arg plays a role in growth hormone secretion (clinical trials of healthy males;3)
- L-proline (Pro) The most vital characteristic of Pro, from the point of view of bodybuilding and strength sports, is its capacity to regulate mTOR kinase activity4, integrating many important signalling pathways initiated under the influence of such important factors such as insulin or insulin-like growth factors (IGF I and IGF II;5,6). Other studies7 show that increasing proline content in the diet by 2.1% results in an intensified body mass growth of up to 20% – from 342 to 411 g/day! The reason for such a significant change is increased nitrogen retention in the cells caused by Pro – from 1.27 to 1.53 g/kg of body mass.
- glycine, which promotes the regeneration of cartilage tissue
- alanine, used by the body as an alternative source of energy when it is experiencing low blood sugar8. Increasing its concentration in the blood may result in a lower level of involvement of other amino acids from the muscle tissue and, at the same time, reduce its catabolism in states of increased physical stress and energy requirements.
