The Science Of Horlicks
Benefit's of horlicks
To maintain muscle mass, one does not just need the right quantity of protein but also the right quality. Horlicks Protein Plus is a scientifically designed protein drink which contains a blend of 3 high quality proteins known to support and maintenance of muscle mass
Here is why:
Protein Digestibility–Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) -1
Nutritional value of proteins may differ substantially depending on their (essential) amino acid composition and digestibility. The protein digestibility–corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) adopted by FAO/WHO is the preferred method for the measurement of the protein quality. Whey protein, casein and soy are all nutritionally complete proteins with a PDCAAS of 1 – the highest protein quality score. Horlicks Protein Plus contains a blend of all three high quality proteins i.e whey, soy and casein.
With Whey Protein
Whey Protein is a dairy based protein and is rapidly digested. Amino acid composition of whey proteins is very similar to that of skeletal muscle hence they can efficiently promote muscle protein synthesis. It also contains a relatively high proportion of branched-chain amino acids such as leucine. Horlicks Protein plus per daily serve i.e., 30g contains nearly 40 – 65% whey (as Whey protein concentrate) *
9 Blend Of Proteins That Provide All 8 Essential Amino Acids
There are 20 amino acids, and your body needs all of them to maintain muscle mass and strength. However, 8 of them cannot be synthesized in the body and therefore need to be consumed. These are called essential amino acids. Horlicks Protein Plus delivers all 8 amino acids* essential for adults namely Threonine, Lysine, Methionine, Valine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Tryptophan and Phenylalanine.
Not all proteins are the same. Some Proteins start working inside the body very quickly, while others are released slowly over the course of many hours. Research suggests that combining animal and plant proteins that have different absorption rates, such as soy protein, whey, and casein, can prolong delivery of amino acids to the muscle. This is because these proteins have different digestion rates, which may create the opportunity to meter delivery of digested amino acids. Thus, protein combinations with a range of digestion rates produce superior gains in muscle mass compared with a single protein source or blends of protein with similar digestion rates. Horlicks Protein Plus contains fast acting whey, intermediate acting soy protein and slow acting casein.
Whey Protein is a fast-release protein, that gets digested rapidly and leads to a fast release of 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 than 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.
