Product features Protein Pro - ProAction

Product features: the product in question proposes very pure egg white proteins, concentrated for about 80%, dried, mixed and flavored, with the addition of a vitaminic mixture and sweetened with sucralose.

Egg protein: egg, and in particular egg white, represent an excellent source of proteins with a very high biological value and particularly complete as regards the amino acid profile. Naturally rich in branched-chain amino acids and arginine, the protein powders extracted from egg white guarantee very high protein concentrations, even higher than 80%, with a percentage of fat that hardly reaches 1%. Although the amino acid profile is very close to that of whey protein, with a decidedly higher proportion of arginine, the kinetic properties of digestion and absorption seem closer to those of caseins. Compared to 97% of absorption capacity, therefore to a very high bioavailability of amino acids that can be absorbed and used for plastic and reconstructive purposes, the ovalbumin and ovo globulins have rather slow gastric emptying times, which guarantee a continuous and gradual supply of amino acids. .
Several studies seem to demonstrate how this absorption pattern can translate into a series of benefits for the athlete during sports performance, significantly reducing muscle proteolysis and saving tissue amino acids from inevitable oxidation: a feature that seems to be confirmed by the significant reduction in markers. of muscle damage, such as lactic dehydrogenase or creatine kinase. In addition to this effect, which would be guaranteed by the pre-workout administration of these proteins, the various studies also associate protein supplementation with:

  • a potential immunoprotective effect, which would protect the athlete from the physiological immune decline following periods of intense training and which would be expressed by some amino acids, such as glutamine;
  • a potential energy effect: associated with both gluconeogenic amino acids, probably responsible for the increased insulin secretion, and BCAAs, which would represent an important energy source especially during endurance sports;
  • a potential plastic and reconstructive effect: guaranteed by the increased availability of substrates necessary for protein synthesis;
  • a potential anabolic effect: partly due to the inducing action on beta cells, materialized in the increased insulin secretion, and partly thanks to the modulation of the intracellular signal, with the activation of a series of transcription factors, such as mTor, capable of directly promote protein synthesis.

How to use recommended by the company - Protein Pro - ProAction

Mix 3 scoops = 30 g of product with 100 - 150 ml of water or other liquid of your choice. Take one serving a day away from main meals and at least one hour before training or competitions.

How to use in sports practice - Protein Pro - ProAction

There are several supplementary protocols proposed by the various studies in the literature, also elaborated on the basis of the objectives set by the athletes. In order for the supplementation to determine the achievement of some real benefit, limiting the potential side effects, it is however necessary to establish the protein quota to be integrated, correlating it to the type of physical activity carried out and to the physiological, nutritional and dietary state of the athlete. In particular, egg proteins, given the peculiar amino acid profile and the absorption spectrum very similar to that of casein, are perfectly suited both to the pre-workout administration, guaranteeing protection of the muscular structures, and to the subsequent recovery phase, where ensuring a gradual and prolonged release of amino acids, they can support the subsequent anabolic phase. In both cases, it is very important to associate at least one additional source of carbohydrates with the protein supplement, preferably:

low glycemic index in pre-workout, in order to ensure a gradual release of energy;

with medium-high glycemic index in post work out, to stimulate insulin secretion, which is important both for facilitating glycogen resynthesis and for supporting protein synthesis.

Synergy - Protein Pro - ProAction

Proteins + antioxidants: the association of antioxidants seems to enhance the protective effect of proteins during intense physical activity.
Proteins + CHO: seems to be the most effective combination ever. In the pre-competition, suitably combined and choosing the most suitable source, carbohydrates can support performance and improve the energy properties of the muscle; in the post-work out, however, they can optimize the recovery and growth process.
Proteins + Creatine: always combined with carbohydrates, taken in the post work out, they seem to improve the increase in lean mass, even if not all studies agree.

Protein Pro Side Effects - ProAction

Known are the long-term side effects of a diet too rich in protein or amino acids; damage to the kidney, dehydration induced by increased urinary secretion, liver or kidney suffering, lipidemic alterations and related associated pathologies, tissue acidosis and bone demineralization, are just some of the consequences of an unbalanced diet over time. Among the harmful effects deriving from a diet too rich in proteins, there is certainly also the increase in adipose tissue induced by the complex metabolic crossroads responsible for the energetic-functional coordination of the organism.

Precautions for using Protein Pro - ProAction

The product is contraindicated in cases of renal or hepatic pathology, cardiovascular disease and / or hypertension, allergies and autoimmune diseases, during pregnancy, during lactation, under 12 years and for adolescents not yet trained.
In case of prolonged use (over 6/8 weeks) the doctor's opinion is necessary.
