PES Select Protein, stop drinking in the past. If you’re a regular 100% whey protein powder user, read on, because there’s something you need to know. Our investigation into the science should royally annoy you. I sure was when I discovered it…
In our quest to build muscle, protein intake for protein synthesis stimulation is the single most important factor. When I say intake, I don't just mean amount... I mean the type of protein too.
Our Research & Development team didn't have to dive, dig, and spend an eternity finding the information... No, the information was easily found on the government-owned science database known as PubMed. And it is so clear cut. There was no theory or interpretation.
Reputable published journals have already tested the effects of different proteins in human subjects, and the data could not be more conclusive. Whey and Casein is the superior choice.
The media tells me that whey protein builds muscle. And you know what? They're totally right. Studies do show that whey alone builds muscle better than other proteins. But if you look what they compare it to, the issue is clear: studies compare whey to weaker products like vegetable-based soy protein, sugary drinks, and even just water. Of course whey is going to come out on top!
Nature Had It Right - So has PES Select
It wasn't until recently that scientists finally decided to give all these 100% whey products a run for their money. And the results were absolutely shocking.
Nature had it right. When researchers at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic tested a combination of whey and casein protein, as found naturally in milk protein, they discovered that the two protein sources work together in a synergistic manner to build lean muscle . Yes...synergistic. Meaning when taken together it is better than taking just one or the other alone.
100% whey protein in isolation only gets you so far... it can spike protein synthesis with an influx of amino acids, but quickly returns to baseline, leaving you where you started.
Enter casein, a slower-digesting protein that's typically consumed for its anti-catabolic properties as it promotes a steady release of amino acids over time. Casein actually results in more retention of ingested protein than whey!
In another published study, researchers found the combination of whey protein with casein protein resulted in a quick increase in protein synthesis along with a sustained elevation in plasma leucine levels . Plasma leucine levels are a key dictator of muscle protein synthesis, and thus, a combination of whey protein and casein protein may serve to maximize muscle protein accumulation.
Whey protein hits the bloodstream at a fast rate, but it is casein protein that has been shown to create the strongest leucine balance, possibly due to less oxidative processes taking place . It only makes sense to consume them together.
Studies have repeatedly shown that milk may be the optimal post workout drink due to the unique delivery and interplay of milk protein's components: whey protein and casein protein, together.
In fact, the research shows that even if amino acid content of a protein is held constant, milk protein augments lean muscle accrual to a greater degree than fast-digesting hydrolyzed proteins due to the unique pattern of amino acid delivery that only milk protein can provide . Nature had it right all along: milk protein is king. Did I mention that Milk Protein Isolate is the first ingredient in PES Select Protein?
Whey and Casein UNITED in PES Select
We already know that whey protein spikes muscle protein synthesis while casein protein creates an anti-catabolic trickle of amino acids, a complementary combination that should be taken at the same time. But in addition to this, whey protein and casein protein each have their own unique bioactive subfractions and growth factors which work in concert when they're taken together .
This is why I was so pissed when I saw the new research... we've been shortchanging ourselves for years. I don't just want something better than whey... I want the best.
The 2005 International Whey Conference concluded that a 50/50 mixture of whey + casein is the optimal form of protein for gaining muscle mass . That's right, even at a whey conference, the researchers found that 100% whey is not the answer!
So if a synergistic whey-casein protein blend is the optimal blend for building muscle, what do you think PES Select Protein brings you? That's right: The most superior protein formula on the market.
