Ultimate Nutrition Muscle Juice® Revolution 2600 is the most advanced weight gainer on the market. It features 56 grams of protein in the exclusive Octo-PRO™ Protein blend that combines 8 key proteins. It contains 170 grams of time-release carbohydrates to extend digestion time and minimize bloating. In addition to the glutamine precursors in this formula, each 1000 mg serving of glutamine includes L-alanyl-L-glutamine. This powerful dipeptide may protect against muscle degradation and provide fuel for exercise to help you go the distance. Take 2 servings a day with milk and you will receive 2600 more calories and 148 more grams of protein to help you exceed your weight-gaining goals.
A protein blend, consisting of multiple protein sources, is superior to any single-protein source for sustained time-release nutritional support. Whey proteins, such as hydrolysate, isolate and concentrate, give your body a surge of amino acids immediately after you consume them. These proteins are great for lean muscle growth. This is when the mid-release proteins take over. Egg protein is considered the perfect source of protein because it is complete in essential amino acids, branch chain amino acids, and glutamic acid. It is completely and easily absorbed by the body. Proteins such as micellar casein, calcium caseinate, and milk protein concentrate take much longer to digest. They are considered to be extended-release proteins, which give the body more time to fully digest and absorb their nutrients.
This new formula also includes an exciting new addition to the carbohydrate world: Karbo-lyn®. This product was invented for the sole purpose of carbohydrate loading. It was designed for elite athletes looking for a fast, easy, and high performance way to load the muscle with accessible muscle glycogen. This high-tech carbohydrate passes through the stomach very quickly; 80% faster than dextrose or sugar. It acts like a pump, pulling water and nutrients along with it.
Glutamine is the ultimate anti-catabolic. It prevents “muscle wasting,” and lessens the degree of muscle damage and soreness. It helps the body to secrete its own growth hormone, which triggers the release of IGF-1 (Insulin Growth Factor 1). This helps increase lean body mass. Glutamine also neutralizes lactic acid burn in your muscles by releasing plasma bicarbonate, allowing you to work out longer and stronger. It also increases nitrogen to help you stay in a positive balance for optimum muscle growth
To perform optimally, muscles need a lot of energy. The body provides this energy, in situations like high-intensity exercise, in the form of ATP or adenosine triphosphate. Since the body stores only a limited supply of ATP, which lasts for only a few seconds of intense exercise, ATP must then be continuously produced to supply enough energy for the muscles to function. A burst of energy is produced by the breakdown of ATP, when one phosphate group is released, creating metabolic energy. The body then uses creatine phosphate to quickly replenish ATP.
The more energy muscles store, the better they can perform in events that require intense, immediate action, such as weightlifting, sprinting, jumping, football, hockey and soccer. Since creatine is stored in the muscle as creatine phosphate, intake of supplemental creatine can increase the production of energy that enables muscles to perform at higher intensity. While the body produces its own supply of creatine, it is not sufficient to supply the muscle with the added energy necessary for intense performance.
The benefits of creatine supplementation for endurance athletes have been actively researched. This research has established that creatine can, in fact, extend endurance at a relatively high dose of 20 grams per day. Creatine increases muscle mass and muscle girth if taken along with a sustained exercise regimen. Initially, it may also increase weight due to gain in the muscle mass. This increase may slow down some athletes, especially swimmers. This “slowing down” may be due to the highly aerobic nature of the exercise, and should be reversible after sustained exercise.
