Here today gone tomorrow! Whomever came up with this popular phrase probably wasn’t thinking about protein supplements when they first uttered these famous words, but they can definitely be applied to the protein industry. Ever since protein supplements first took the sports nutrition market by storm there has been no shortage of companies trying to jump on the band-wagon with the latest and greatest version. However, MET-Rx Ultramyosyn Whey has stood the test of time with our no nonsense whey protein blend.
What is Ultramyosyn Whey
Ultramyosyn Whey is a high quality protein powder that only uses Whey as its protein source. If you use MET-Rx bars as part of your fitness regimen, think of Ultramyosyn as their perfect training partner. While the bars can be used anytime of the day as a meal replacement or snack to help meet your craving for great tasting protein, Ultramyosyn is the perfect addition right before or after your workout. Pre and post-workout is when you want to get amino acids from protein to your muscles as quickly as possible. Amino acids are used as the building blocks for lean muscle and support recovery right after a workout to help you grow stronger. Whey gets to your muscles rapidly, with one study showing it can stimulate muscle building in less than 1 hour when used as a post-exercise beverage.
A more recent study published in 2019 confirmed the quick digestion of whey protein. In this case, subjects were given a protein supplement on 3 different occasions which consisted of either whey, a plant source of protein, or an insect protein (yes people actually volunteered to eat ground-up bugs!). Compared to the other two protein sources, whey was able to elevate amino acid levels in the blood to a greater extent when measured over 2 hours after ingestion.
The Perfect Stack
Based on the study results just mentioned, try taking Ultramyosyn Whey right before or after your workout to support lean muscle and recovery. You can easily mix in a blender with fruit and other healthy ingredients or simply just add to water and mix up in a shaker bottle. An hour or two later, grab a MET-Rx Big 100 bar for added protein and calories (plus essential vitamins and minerals) needed to further recovery. And contrary to popular opinion, getting quality protein is not just important after lifting weights, as intense cardio exercise can break down muscle and increase your protein needs as well.
Why MET-Rx Whey Protein?
