ProHydrolase® is a highly effective, scientifically engineered blend of protease enzymes designed to quickly and efficiently help your body break down protein into its bio-usable form. You guessed it – free form amino acids! It delivers a one-of-a-kind proprietary enzymatic matrix comprising protease – carefully derived from a unique microbial source called Bacillus subtilis, as well as bromelain – painstakingly extracted from Ananas comosus, commonly known as pineapple. This scientifically engineered dual-sourced complex is backed by real clinical research and shown to help maximize the key benefits of protein supplements by assisting the body to squeeze out every nutritional efficiency of your whey protein, through improved absorption of amino acids. Because ProHydrolase® helps break down protein into an easily-absorbed form, you can maximize amino acid uptake into your system and capitalize on every scoop of whey. This is key if you want to optimize your muscle building gains and recovery potential from your delicious protein shake.
In a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study of ProHydrolase® combined with whey protein, researchers showed that the enzymatic complex improved digestion and absorption of amino acids, compared to whey protein alone. The researchers gave 20 volunteers (aged 19 to 35 with normal healthy BMI) whey protein with ProHydrolase® or whey protein by itself. At the end of the study, the researchers found that total amino acid concentrations increased significantly (by 55 mg) more after taking the whey protein with ProHydrolase® supplement than after just the whey protein-only supplement. In other words – taking whey enhanced with ProHydrolase® provided 20% more amino acids than whey protein by itself! This is amazing because whey is already known as one of the highest quality sources of amino acids. So, maximizing absorption of such a high-biological value protein source is no laughing matter. This would be exactly akin to taking a souped-up turbojet engine and adding an expensive afterburner to it, in order to increase thrust and horse-power! With that analogy in mind, now you can truly understand and fully appreciate the powerful impact of protein with added ProHydrolase®.When all is said and done, with such impressive science to back up this unique enzymatic matrix, you can easily see why MuscleTech Research & Development have worked very meticulously with the researchers at Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes, the makers of ProHydrolase® to develop key MuscleTech protein formulas that will help you maximize your muscle building power and recovery efforts. So be sure to look for ProHydrolase® in the MuscleTech Nitro-Tech® and Iso Whey Clear® protein formulas — and even more to come in the future!
