When it comes to mass gain, the most important factor is calorie consumption. Calories are the energy currency your body uses to function. Whether you’re at rest, work or training your body is constantly using calories to provide itself with the energy it needs to not only perform but also survive.
Sodium is an electrolyte that plays a vital role in the regulation of body fluids. It plays a major role in resistance training. Sodium’s function in nerve impulse transmission and muscular contraction is essential to bodybuilders. Moreover, it also helps in sustaining regular blood pH levels. Having too little sodium in your body can lead to all kinds of negative consequences such as muscle cramps, dizziness, electrolyte imbalances and more.
Glycogen is produced from carbohydrates that promotes the release of insulin used as a major anabolic hormone for muscle development. Since complex carbohydrates break down slowly, they keep your insulin and blood sugar levels balanced which, in turn, reduces the body’s need to store fat as well as combats fatigue. Additionally, when protein and carbohydrates are mixed together it minimize the chance of the carbohydrates being stored as fat. Protein is harder for the body to process, so it increases your metabolism. Also, carbohydrates help transport the nutrients from protein to the muscle cells which aids in muscle growth.
Protein is one of the most essential macronutrients for muscle growth and repair because it’s packed with amino acids that your body does and doesn’t produce. That’s why it’s important to have protein post-workout to restore these muscle-building macronutrients. Proteins not only helps rebuild and build lean body mass, but they’re also a core part of enzymes and hormones that help communicate with the body to repair itself. Moreover, it is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Along with fat and carbohydrates, protein is a "macronutrient," meaning that the body needs relatively large amounts of it.
Calcium does more than help build strong bones and prevent osteoporosis. It is the primary mineral involved in muscular contraction. It is responsible for triggering muscle contraction. Muscles are comprised of two protein filaments: myosin and actin. When muscle contraction occurs, these filaments slide over each other to convert ATP (adenosine triphosphate), aka the way your body stores and uses energy. The more you exercise, the more ATP your body needs to keep your muscles moving.
Goat milk protein is a great way to add extra protein to your diet. It has several properties that proves its superiority such as it is easy to digest, tolerated well by those with allergies, great for those who may be lactose intolerant, and loaded with important vitamins and minerals that our bodies need to stay healthy. It is used by athletes to help build muscle and also help repair muscles that may have been strained through exercise or weight lifting.
Organic cocoa powder is rich in polyphenols that is linked to numerous health benefits including reduced inflammation, better blood flow, lower blood pressure and improved cholesterol and blood sugar levels. The flavanols in cocoa improves nitric oxide levels in the blood, which can enhance the function of your blood vessels and therefore reduces blood pressure.
In beverages, guar gum is used as a thickening, stabilizing, suspending, and binding agent. It helps decrease the amount of cholesterol and glucose that is absorbed in the stomach and intestines. There is some interest in using guar gum for weight loss because it expands in the intestine, causing a sense of fullness. This factor may decrease appetite.
Xanthan gum adds thickness to beverages, keep textures from changing, and hold ingredients in place. Its health benefits include relieving osteoarthritis pain, alleviates constipation and helps control hunger.
Stevia is part of the healthy sugar substitute market. Its active chemical that contributes the sweet flavor is called stevioside. It enables stevia to be a non-caloric sweetener that's 100-300 times sweeter than sucrose. The primary benefits associated with stevia include bodyweight and blood-glucose control. It also reduces inflammation which is beneficial muscle training.
A high source of natural proiten, mild taste and makes great smoothies.
Great tasting protein shake and sits well with the digestion. I chose goat's milk because it is easy to digest. My husband has not had any of the gastrointestinal side effects he usually has with whey when I make his smoothies with this.
