It doesn’t matter if you participate in extreme sports, if you’re training for a 10 km run, or if you do a few exercises in front of the TV. Exercise is good for both physical and mental well-being. When it comes to sports and exercise, protein is the number one nutritional supplement for muscular health*. Almased helps you optimise your training in several ways.
*Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
Depending on the type of exercise and the level of intensity, the body may often require more protein than can be obtained from a regular diet. As such, consuming additional protein from high-quality, easily digested sources is often advised. More and more sports enthusiasts are using multi-component proteins to provide for their needs. What do you need to consider when looking for protein supplements?
• The right combination of both plant and animal proteins.
• The amino acids content, especially branched chain amino acids.
• The biological value and how well protein is digested by the body.
Almased combines high-quality proteins from both plant and animal sources (soya and yogurt) which results in a high biological value and availability. Almased provides all essential amino acids including branched-chain amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements, all of which are important for those engaged in regular exercise.
When consumed before exercise, Almased can provide you with the energy needed to fuel performance. The high-quality soya and yogurt proteins also help the retention of muscle during exercise.
