Why Are You Flushing Your Money Away? Is your protein more anabolic than catabolic? As usual at ALR Industries we are pushing the envelope in product formulation for those who want real results, not hype. So let's start with the first fact that is going to change an industry and start more fights than Helen of Troy. Your protein sucks and it's not my fault. Please do not misunderstand me. There really are some well designed and researched products available from companies like Progenex with brilliant people like Dr. Scott Connelly and of course some of the creative and high-quality proteins from good companies like MHP. But there is an inherent flaw in most proteins available on the market: They were not made for humans.
I Know We All Want Great Calves But We Are Not Calves
You are not a cow so why are you drinking cow proteins like whey and casein? The last time you had human protein was when Mom made it fresh for you. Cows milk protein is about 80% casein and 20% whey. Human milk protein is about 40% casein and 60% whey. There is no doubt that human whey is superior to human utilization at birth. As a baby grows breast milk proteins change until the ratio is about 50/50.
So What's the Big Deal?
Let's start from the source: Human milk whey protein is dominant in alpha-lactalbumin and cow milk whey protein is dominant in beta-lactoglobulin. Whereas alpha-lactalbumin has been studied well for validation associated with increased immune factors to disease, allergies increased mineral absorption, and growth factors specific to humans, beta-lactoglobulin has been associated with the exact opposite. It's for cows, what were you expecting?
In short, that gut bloat is not just extra calories anymore than the excess gas you assumedly avoid sharing with friends, and training partners is a supposed side effect of an anabolic environment. Gastronomical distress is not new to cow protein utilization by humans. As I said, you are a human so there should be a little shock here. Immune issues will slow or stop growth and recovery while increasing cortisol production. Sometimes decrease in immune function can even lead to Immunotoxicity, but certainly rare in regard to protein sources.
But Whey Has a PER (Protein Efficiency Ratio) of 104, Right?
Okay, BS. Since you cannot exceed 100% this is already a little silly. PER is a false method for the evaluation of a protein's actual utilization in building new muscle tissue. What is the definition of PER?
A biological assay of the quality of a particular protein, measured as the gain in weight of an animal per gram of the protein eaten. The PER ratio is not used so much now, but until 1991 the PER was the legally required way of expressing protein quality for nutrition labeling in the USA.
Many still use it today. Bottom line is that no matter what you add to or fraction in whey protein from cows, it's still from cows and not designed for humans.
Um, protein (such as cow whey) with the incorrect ration of amino acids specific to human physiology utilization results in stores of fat as well, so basing a protein efficiency ratio on weight gain is obviously idiocy. A far superior method of assaying a protein anabolic (muscle building) value and actual utilization in lean mass is Net Nitrogen Utilization or NNU. The very highest quality whey protein has an NNU of 16-17%. So this means the other 83-84% can be stored as fat, burned as calories, or hit the toilet. 83-84% catabolites is not a healthy or lean mass promoting percentage. The lions share goes by way of the latter BTW. So when you pay $20 USD for a pound (454 grams) of high-quality whey protein powder you actually get about 77 grams of protein with an NNU near 100%. The rest hits the toilet for the most part. Good investment, huh? Kind of a crappy one in my opinion.
Want to add insult to injury? As we continue to ingest high levels of protein the amount utilized lessens over time. So whereas you were once utilizing 17% of that 100-200 grams of whey ingested daily it can drop to as low as half that over a prolonged period of high protein intake. What happens then? Even more body fat and toilet trash.
So What is Humapro?
Humapro is a patent-pending one of a kind protein matrix that we started working on in 1998. Humapro starts with a specific vegetable origin 8 essential amino acid (EAAs) formulation that takes into account the exact HUMAN enzymic conversion of, and utilization rates for, all amino acids the body needs for optimal health. Did you know that if you removed even one of the EAAs from your diet for the day your body would use none of the protein you take in? Okay, for lean mass growth that is. The human body will use the insufficient protein to make glucose, if needed, certainly store some as fat and give you plenty of me time in the bathroom to deposit the lions share. So an exact ratio is paramount. Why? The human body makes literally thousands of amino acids from the 8 EAAs so they must be in the right ratios for the right conversion rates. Enlarge the chart below to get an idea of just how complex this metabolic miracle is and a better idea as to why the correct ratios result in a nearly pure anabolic complex.
We nanosized certain EAAs so all 8 EAAs pass through the GI and into the body at the same rate to assure that all 8 EAAs are present at the protein receptors at the same time. If they aren't, you again limit anabolism potential. We did this for maximal results and to allow for immediate release ingestion to assimilation time of 20-25 minutes depending upon your GI tract. Oh, did I mention that Humapro has a caloric count of 0.4 calories per gram? Regular proteins have a calorie value of 4 calories per gram. Talk about no waste so you have a tighter waist! Think about how much more healthy food you can eat to stimulate growth, performance, and health whether dieting or increasing lean mass.
The Extended Time-Release Proprietary Anti-Catabolic and Insulingenic Matrix
Next, we formulated an extended time-release anti-catabolic and insulinogenic matrix from bitter melon and a specific coffee bean extract to assure serious inhibition of lean mass loss while significantly increasing cellular up-take of nutrients. This effect lasts for up to 12 hours so all of your other meals are ingested in a high lean mass nutrient up-take, low catabolic pro-anabolism environment. I guess I should mention that the matrix has two powerful antioxidants as well.
Oh, but insulinogenic compounds inhibit fat loss and increase SHBG. You know, that protein that binds and makes useless your sex hormones like testosterone? More SHBG means less in short. Well, we at ALR Industries do not do kitchen sink formulas! The fractional extraction process we worked on for the last 4 years creates a series of insulinogenic compounds that are lipolytic meaning they inhibit fat from feeding rather than increase it. This allows Humapro to act as a repartitioning product as well in favor of lean mass low-fat augmentation by everyone. By the way, the insulinogenic matrix we created also does not increase SHBG like natural or medical insulin does.
Oh, and yes it's true that many anti-catabolic compounds decrease joint and connective tissue lubrication but ours doesn't. Instead of inhibiting the production of cortisone (supports and maintains good joint and connective tissue health) like many so-called anti-catabolic compounds, we inhibited the non-essential increase in cortisol. As a rule, the body sees stress like training, long work hours, a pissed off significant other, or dieting as a trigger to increase cortisol which in turn decreases lean mass, hinders performance, and slows recovery. It also doesn't do anything good for our cardiovascular systems or organs. The way this occurs is predominantly through the conversion of cortisone to cortisol. Personally I would rather recover faster, perform better, and be in a pro-anabolic environment with healthy joints and connective tissue.
This means Humapro is the ultimate foundation or sole protein source for mixed, keto, or even high carbohydrate diets. No other protein has beaten us yet! Cool, huh?
The Nutrient Co-Factor Matrix
Last we added the correct human ratio of the vitamin and mineral co-nutrient factors for complete utilization of protein.
- A 99:1 Anabolic to Catabolic Ratio complete protein
- Anti-Catabolic Support
- Enhanced NNU and Cellular Nutrient Up-Take
- Nutrient Repartitioning That Starves the Fat and Feeds Lean Mass
- A decrease in growth/recovery limiting Myostatin (No joke)
- The Best Protein Source on the Planet
ALRI Humapro can also be utilized synergistically with Chaind Reaction Ultra Volumize, Chaind Reaction Ultra-Keto, Chaind Reaction Ultra Endurance, and/or Chaind Out.
The only question left is do you want to perform better, lift more, recover faster, be healthier, be leaner, and grow faster or hang out in the bathroom?
