Maxs Shred System Key Ingredients
Whey Protein Isolate
Whey Protein Isolate is known as the purest form of whey protein that is available. Whey Protein is filtered at very high temperatures to remove the concentrates and impurities leaving a very pure and clean Whey Protein Isolate.
Whey Protein Isolates are very low in fat and carbohydrates and contain very little lactose making them ideal for those who are sensitive to lactose or have digestive difficulties. Isolates are also very easily digested and absorbed making them ideal for repair and recovery as well as muscle protein synthesis.
Hydrolyzed Whey Peptides
Hydrolyzed Whey is a further broken down form of whey that delivers high-quality protein to the body in a faster and more efficient manner. This form of whey is much easier for the body to digest and assimilate for maximum effectiveness.
Whey Protein Concentrate
Whey Protein Concentrate consists of up to 80% protein and undergoes a slightly different manufacturing process to that of isolate. Whey Protein Concentrate contains the same complete amino acids profile to that of Isolates however it does contain slightly more fat and carbohydrates.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
CLA is a polyunsaturated, omega-6 fatty acid that is found in red meats, dairy and vegetables. Optimal levels of CLA are generally only achieved through supplementation where it is said to have an important role in weight loss. CLA is known to help reduce body fat deposits together with enhancing overall immune function.
Green Coffee Extract
Green Coffee Bean Extract is derived from unroasted coffee beans. These coffee beans are naturally high in Chlorogenic Acids which are believed to be a natural metabolism booster. These compounds are said to have antioxidant effects and to aid in weight loss.
Guarana is a plant that grows in the Amazon. Guarana not only contains Caffeine, but also Theophylline and Theobromine which are two compounds that are also similar to Caffeine. Guarana helps to enhance athletic performance, mental performance and increase energy.
Acetyl L Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid that aids in fat loss and brain function. L-Carnitine is produced in the body from two amino acids – Lysine and Methionine and is also found in small amounts in meat and fish. The majority (98%) is stored in the muscles with the remaining 2% being stored in the liver and blood.
L-Carnitine aid in energy production through the transportation of fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells. The mitochondria are essentially the engines of our cells and the burning of these fats creates a greater production of useable energy.
Branched Chain Amino Acids
In total there are 20 amino acids that help to make up the multitude of proteins that are found in the human body. Nine of those 20 amino acids are classed as essential amino acids, with three of those being branched-chain amino acids or BCAA’s.
The three BCAA’s – Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine aid in muscle protein synthesis, decreasing muscle soreness, reducing fatigue, facilitating recovery and preventing muscle degradation.
