9 in 10 Experts Believe A Triple Blend Protein Is Best1
Not all proteins are the same. Some Proteins get to work in the body very quickly, while others are released slowly over the course of many hours. Choosing a blend ensures you get the best of both worlds.
The Science Behind Protein
The rate at which proteins breakdown and release Amino Acids into the blood stream will determine the ability of the body to stimulate Muscle Protein synthesis (the process by which muscles are rebuilt on a daily basis). For a long time, Whey Protein was considered the best protein due to its fast release into the blood, however, the science now suggests a blend of Proteins is better. To understand why, let’s compare the speed at which Amino Acids are released from Whey, Soy and Casein, the three proteins in Horlicks Protein+.
Whey Protein is a fast release protein, being digested rapidly and leading to a fast increase in amino acids into the blood.
Soy Protein is termed an 'intermediate release protein', releasing amino acids into the blood a little slower than whey but higher as compared to casein.
Casein, the dominant protein in milk, is a slow release protein with a lower peak but a more gradual and prolonged amino acid release pattern.
The beauty of choosing a blend containing all three of these Protein is that it provides a fast and sustained release over time to support Muscle Maintenance & Growth.2
When choosing a Protein beverage, choose a blend to benefit from fast and sustained release of Amino Acids.
