MUSCLE OPTIMEAL® ADVANTAGE
Tri-Protein Blend — Each serving of Muscle Optimeal® contains 22 grams of high biological value protein from Whey, Milk and Rice, providing about 5 grams of Branched Chain Amino Acids (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine). Whey protein is the king of proteins because it is the richest natural source of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are important for enhanced muscle development, muscle repair and gluconeogenesis (synthesis of glucose), and are depleted during intense exercise. BCAAs are essential amino acids and must be provided in the diet, since they are not manufactured in the body. For a better anabolic effect, Muscle Optimeal® also contains Milk and Rice Protein, which are digested more slowly than whey to offer a delayed release of amino acids for sustained muscle protein synthesis.*
Glutamine and Xylitol — The Dieter’s Nutrients. Each serving of Muscle Optimeal® is loaded with Glutamine from Whey and Xylitol to resist the loss of muscle tissue caused by dieting and intense exercise. Glutamine is used by rapidly dividing cells as a fuel source. Xylitol is an alditol (a special carbohydrate) that helps to enhance physical performance and counteract loss of nucleotides.*
MultiFiber™ — An advanced, dietary soluble fiber made of complex carbohydrates from rice bran fiber and rice bran solubles. Each serving of Muscle Optimeal® contains 6 grams of fiber per serving, comprised of 4 grams soluble fiber and 2 grams insoluble fiber.
MultiBlend™ — is a blend of 26 essential vitamins/minerals added to Muscle Optimeal® to improve the body’s ability to recuperate from strenuous physical exercise. Included in MultiBlend™ are important antioxidant nutrients, such as vitamins A, C, E, folic acid and stress B vitamin complex, including vitamin B12.*
