Athletes Need Complete Protein
Friday, 22 May 2020
What is complete protein?
A complete protein is made up of all nine essential amino acids. Similar to baking a cake, in order to make a complete protein, you need the correct amount of each ingredient (in this case the ingredients are amino acids).
Most natural foods that contain protein have at least some complete protein. Natural foods are rarely “perfectly complete” or “not complete” – more often they are “somewhat complete”.
Soy protein, for example, is 30% complete. Whey protein is 24% complete. This means that the same amount of muscle can be built by either 25 grams of soy protein, or 31 grams of whey protein. Soy protein, gram for gram, will build a little more muscle than whey protein.
Rebuild Recovery Delivers Quality Protein
This explains why the 10 grams of high-quality protein in a serving of Rebuild Recovery will build as much muscle as 25 grams of soy protein or 31 grams of whey protein.
The Importance of Timing
If you’re baking a cake, you don’t bake flour and eggs first and then bake butter and sugar later. The cake needs all the ingredients in the correct quantities at the same time to be effective. It’s the same thing with building muscle and the nine essential amino acids. Rebuild gives your body exactly what it needs, when you need it.
If you drink a serving in the first hour after a workout (commonly referred to as the “golden hour”), your body gets the right amount of complete protein at just the right time. It’s a game changer!
