BioTech USA Beef Protein is a special protein nutrient, which contains the peptide formula of hydrolyzed beef protein, enriched with amino acids. This formulation possesses an excellent solubility as well as a great taste, and at the same time it provides an easy to digest animal protein of high quality. It is practically deprived of other macroelements, as well as lactose, to which many people are allergic.
The benefits coming from the high proportion of protein in the athlete’s diet
For physically active people, a high supply of proteins is a key element of the diet, both during the period of building strength, dynamics or muscle mass, as well as during the reduction or losing of the weight to a certain limit. Proteins as the building blocks of muscle tissues significantly affects the speed of regeneration, therefore, for people training it is recommended to use a diet containing a minimum of 1.6g/kg of body weight during the day. An increased amount of this macroelement enables efficient reconstruction of structures within the movement apparatus that have been damaged during training, which is a direct condition for recording a progression regardless of the sports discipline. However, during weight reduction, the high protein supply ensures a feeling of satiety longer than other nutrients. In addition, the increased intake of good quality proteins stimulates the organism through metabolic pathways to maintain as much muscle mass as possible, despite the deficit.
Beef protein hydrolyzate is an extraordinary type of protein nutrition, the composition of which contains the proteins contained in the beef, which underwent a pre-treatment, in this case it being hydrolysis. This means that they have went through initial decomposition into smaller constituent molecules called peptides. Naturally, this process needs to be performed by the organism in order to be able to use proteins as an energy source or use them as a building material. Because of the enzymatic hydrolysis, the process of assimilation of amino acids which build proteins happens extremely quickly. The efficient delivery of good quality proteins to the organism is extremely important in situations where there is an increased demand for this macroelement, which occurs, among others, after training or after waking up. Because of that, it is possible to counteract the reactions of muscle catabolism, which may occur as a result of night fasting or effort.
L-arginine is an endogenic amino acid, which hold a different kind of role than most of the compounds in the same group, since it is an agent for stimulating the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO). A high level of this substance causes an increased muscle pump, i.e. increased muscle blood supply. This condition is desirable among people exercising not only because of a more full and veined muscle appearance. Due to the increased flow of blood through the tissues, their nutrition is intensified and the access to oxygen is increased. The phenomenon of the muscle pump has a beneficial influence on the exercise capacity of the muscles, which are provided with larger amounts of substances necessary for work. What is more, greater access to energy substrates also ensures a faster post-workout regeneration, which in turn allows for more frequent trainings and accelerated process of muscle tissue development.
L-glutamine is another endogenic amino acid, the natural synthesis of which could be severely too low, especially in the case of physically active people or being ill and with lowered immunity. This substance is present almost throughout the whole organism, which is caused by the high importance of L–glutamine in many organism’s systems. First of all, it supports detoxification processes and reduces the amount of free radicals in the organism. Secondly, L–glutamine intensifies immunity through sealing the intestinal barrier and improving the nutrition of cells that are actively involved in the immune response reaction. Thirdly, it intensifies the synthesis of muscle proteins by promoting a positive nitrogen balance in the organism, which is an incentive for the muscles to hypertrophy, i.e. growth. The high supply of glutamine supports the organism in a multidirectional manner, which is why this product has been supplemented with this amino acid.
To sum up, BioTech USA Beef Protein is an exceptional formulation that contains more than 85% of protein originating from beef, which is extremely fast absorbed by the organism, without burdening the digestive system. This supplement supports the regenerative processes of the organism, helps in building the muscle tissue, improves the blood supply of the muscles and can have a beneficial influence of the immunity.
This formulation is excellent for people who are lactose, milk or even whey intolerant.
The supplement is extremely easy to digest, that is why it can be helpful in the period of mass or muscle strength building, when one is consuming a lot of meals.
The formulation is available in attractive taste options, therefore it can be an interesting diversification in the diet. It tastes great not only in the form of a common shake, but also as a fit-pastries or desserts.

The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents energy., determining the value of metabolic energy contained in 1 g of the component. Most commonly used is the equivalent of Atwater: protein 4 kcal/g for carbohydrates 4kcal/g, and for fat 9kcal/g.
Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.
Saturated fatty acids are a group of fatty acid having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is linked by a single bond. Saturated fatty acids are commonly known as bad fat, which might adversely affect the cholesterol level, in particular by the action of acids: lauric, myristic, palmitic, and therefore their consumption should be reduced. Research carried out in this matter do not confirm entirely the prevailing beliefs.
Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.
Sugars - is the term used to refer to the crystal structure of the carbohydrate (sugar), characterized by a sweet taste. This group includes: sucrose (obtained from sugar cane and sugar beets and natural foods), fruit sugars (fructose) and glucose. Carbohydrate intake should not exceed 10% of the energy consumed during the day meals. Excess intake of sugars leading to diseases, including diabetes, atherosclerosis and obesity. Particular caution should be performed carbohydrate intake by athletes of sculpting disciplines and people on a diet. A greater need for carbohydrates, due being easily accessible sources of energy, may be in the periods before and after workouts and before and after the fight.

Proteins (proteins, polypeptides) is a polymer, of which the basic units (monomers) are amino acids. Protein is composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and sulfur, and is an elementary nutrient necessary for the proper functioning of the body, an ingredient and a component of tissues, part of the hormones and enzymes and other bioactive substances. Protein determines the proper metabolism and energy processes, as well as all other life processes. The sources of natural proteins are foods of animal origin (including meat, fish, eggs, dairy products) and plant origin (legumes, soy). Deficiency of protein leads to protein malnutrition and a significant weakening of the body. It can lead to anaemia, reduced immunity, muscle relaxation, disorders of the digestive system. Also, overdose protein is undesirable because it can lead to acidification of the body, and interfere with the digestive system and an increase in the concentration of homocysteine in the blood. It is a component of many supplements and nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body, both showing a low physical activity, or training the strength and endurance competitions.
Dosage: strength athletes: approx. 1.7 - 2.5 g / 1 kg of body weight; endurance athletes and strength -endurance athletes approx. 1.3 - 2 g / 1 kg of body weight, people with low activity approx. 0.8 - 1.1 g / 1 kg of body weight / 24h. In estimating the amount of protein, you should take into account the intake of other nutrients (carbohydrates and fats)
Salt (sodium chloride, or table salt), natural source of electrolytes (chlorine and potassium), regulating water and electrolyte and acid-base balance of the body, affecting the nervous system and blood pressure. Sodium is an essential element for the proper growth. The proper dose of salt prevents overheating of the body and solar stroke. It provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves the body. Chlorine in combination with sodium, is involved in the digestive process and maintains acid-base balance in the body, as antitoxin removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver. Salt is a flavour component and preservative of many foods, nutritional supplements and mixtures of electrolytes, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: no specific standards of consumption, used so as to provide sufficient amount of electrolytes to the body (sodium and chloride).
L-glutamine - amino acid building endogenous proteins, glutamic acid amide. In the human body it is responsible for the synthesis of proteins, acid-base balance and removing ammonia outside of the organism. With the shortage of energy taken from the muscle tissue, glutamine with alanine participate in the process of gluconeogenesis, and participate in the production of glucose substrate. L-glutamine has a direct impact on the proper functioning of the digestive system and immunity of the organism. Participates in the synthesis of one of the most powerful antioxidant - glutathione. It has anti-catabolic potential. It is found naturally in foods of animal and vegetable origin and high protein supplements. Used as mono-preparation or multi-component amino-acid supplements and supplements enhancing biological recovery after exercises, often in combination with BCAA.
Dosage: 5-20 g per day (portioned during the day, and after training and waking up). The minimum dose used in supplementation is 2-15g per 1 serving.
Arginine is an exogenous amino acid, it is a component of dietary proteins, not always synthesized in the human body in necessary quantity, so it is necessary to deliver it in the form of synthetics. It takes part in the biosynthesis agmatine, creatine and nitrogen oxides. The use of supplements containing arginine before workout increases the exercise capacity (strength, endurance). Used after considerable effort intensifies the transfer of energy and building compounds and intensifies the process of recovery. Used at bedtime in combination with lysine and ornithine enhances the synthesis of growth hormone. takes part in the intrasystemic synthesis of creatine. Arginine (as a precursor of ornithine) is involved in the urea cycle, increases the flow of blood in the circulatory system, increases sexual potency (in a short time after application). It affects the body's immunity preventing infections, and lowers blood pressure. In supplements – usually as alpha-ketoglutarate.
