COMBAT 100% WHEY is a low-carb, high-protein, great-tasting protein supplement with minimal fat and low sodium that delivers fast digesting protein sources to build and maintain lean muscle mass.
Combat 100% Whey combines two of the fastest digesting, most efficient, and cleanest protein sources available: Whey Protein Isolate and Whey protein Concentrate. Whey protein has the highest bioavailability among complete proteins (protein that contains a complete amino acid profile of all 9 essential amino acids) and also has the highest absorption rate among any other proteins. Whey protein isolate is a concentrated whey protein molecule “isolated” to remove any impurities such as fats, or sugars. This process, in turn, reduces the size of the molecule making it easier for the body to absorb and faster to digest. Additionally, Combat 100% Whey is low in sodium at only 65mg per serving. This can reduce the risk of excess water retention, further ensuring that the mass that you put on is the mass that you intended.
Digestive enzymes break down food along the digestive tract so that nutrients can be absorbed into the bloodstream. COMBAT™ contains 60mg of a Digestive Enzyme Blend to aid in the digestion and absorption of the key muscle-building proteins contained herein. The body cannot absorb what it cannot break down. The added Digestive Enzyme Blend ensures maximum utilization of COMBAT’s muscle-building protein component.
Added BCAAs and Glutamine:
The Branched Chain Amino Acids, L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine, are the most critical of the essential amino acids for the maintenance, repair and building of muscle tissue. The BCAA’s (especially L-Leucine) have been shown to stimulate protein synthesis and therefore, muscle growth. BCAA’s may also slow down catabolism by inhibiting cortisol. L-Glutamine is the amino acid that has immune-boosting properties. L-Glutamine helps with recovery as well. Together, the extra Branched Chain Amino Acids and the added Glutamine in COMBAT fortify the muscle-building, recovery and immune-boosting properties of this, the most technologically advanced protein super food available.
COMBAT™ feeds the anabolic and recovery pathways within the body to support muscle growth, fuel recovery and maximize the body’s adaptive response to hard training.
NO HARD-TRAINING ATHLETE SHOULD TRAIN WITHOUT COMBAT™.
Note: Ingredients and values may be slightly different depending on the flavour.
Should COMBAT be mixed with milk or water?
COMBAT protein can be mixed with either depending on your tastes and goals. A thicker and richer shake will be had with the use of milk, but I only recommend this for those that are bulking up. For those looking to gain lean muscle and/or reveal more definition, I would recommend either straight water or ½ skim milk and ½ water. COMBAT tastes great either way.
Can COMBAT be used in conjunction with other Muscle Pharm products?
Absolutely it can! COMBAT is a perfect fit with any and all of the Muscle Pharm line of hardcore products! In fact, COMBAT should be the foundation of your supplement program no matter what your fitness goals entail.
How do I know how many scoops to use per serving?
Although this is difficult to answer because there are many factors involved when evaluating the amount of protein that should be consumed per meal and on a daily basis, my general recommendation would be:
• 150 lbs and less
• 1 scoop per serving
• 151-200 lbs
• 1.5 scoops per serving
• 201-225 lbs – 2 scoops per serving
• 226-250 lbs – 2.5 scoops per serving
• 251 and up – 3 scoops per serving
Since protein already contains both glutamine and BCAA’s, why is there more added to the formula?
BCAA’s and glutamine are the most important amino acids for muscle growth and repair, mostly because of the roles they play in protein synthesis, immune system function, energy production,glycogen storage, natural GH release, and the slowing of protein breakdown. Thus, we added even more of these amazing aminos so that your results would surpass anything you have experienced with any other protein powder!
