This supplement allows quick replenishment of diet with a rapidly digestible protein, in the form of a delicious shake available in 6 extraordinary flavors.
Protein as a key ingredient in the diet of active people
Protein is a key macronutrient for people whose muscles are subjected to high loads. In contrast to fats and carbohydrates, the main task of proteins is not to provide energy, but to create and rebuild body tissues. For this reason, every person who exposes their body to the effort leading to micro-damage of muscle tissue should ensure a high dose of amino acids derived from good quality proteins. This is necessary for the regeneration processes to occur at a satisfactory pace, which invariably leads to progress.
The quality of protein is equally important as the amount of protein supplied in a diet because not all amino acids can be used to build human tissues. Hence, the Biological Value (BV) parameter was created to make it possible to compare the quality of particular proteins. The parameter compares to what extent the amino acid profile of a given protein coincides with the egg protein, which is considered the best for the construction of human tissues. Another determinant of protein quality may be the content of BCAAs, or branched chain amino acids, which have a significant influence on the synthesis of muscle proteins.
This product provides proteins with an excellent aminogram, thanks to the combination of two fractions of whey proteins:
Whey protein concentrate (WPC) – it is a type of whey protein that belongs to the most commonly used dietary supplements among athletes. It is a convenient form to be used for complementing the menu with high-quality proteins, with a tiny addition of carbohydrates and fat, while maintaining a reasonable price. The whey protein concentrate starts absorption after about 30 minutes and lasts for almost 2 hours, which perfectly covers the time of increased absorption of macronutrients which occurs following the completion of a workout. The slightly prolonged absorption time of WPC, compared to isolate, is an unquestionable benefit in the reduction of body weight. The supplement ensures the presence of amino acids in the blood for longer, thus reducing the intensity of catabolic processes, which in turn results in a reduced risk of muscle loss. In addition, slower release kinetics means that there are no sudden attacks of hunger after eating a supplement.
It is also worth paying attention to the high BV value, which is about 100, and the good amino acid profile offered by WPC. Both of these parameters guarantee that the supplied amino acids will do well as a building block for muscle tissue.
Whey protein isolate (WPI) – a fraction considered to be the most perfect and purest of whey proteins. It is obtained through the process of microfiltration of whey protein, which removes not only all impurities, but also milk fat particles and lactose. The raw material obtained in this way has dry matter content of protein up to 95%, further abounding with valuable BCAA amino acids (leucine, valine and isoleucine). These proteins, and in particular leucine, promote the synthesis of muscle proteins by stimulation of kinases. This means that their high supply may positively affect the growth of the athlete's muscle mass and the more effective regeneration of muscle tissue.
In addition, the WPI is characterized by an extremely high bioavailability, which is confirmed by the BV parameter of over 150. The absorption rate of amino acids from this protein fraction is also one of the fastest, which makes this preparation to work well right after a workout or waking up when the body needs a rapid surge of protein.
The preparation belongs to the Muscle-Zone product line. These products are manufactured with the utmost care to ensure that they meet all expectations of customers. For this reason, both the solubility and the taste are at the highest level, whereas the packaging in the form of a can ensures freshness of the products. The supplement offered comes in 6 attractive, original flavors. The manufacturer additionally made sure that the lovers of supplements with a natural taste could also find something for themselves.
To sum up, MZ-Store Whey Protein (WPI+WPC) is a product intended for athletes expecting high-quality protein supplement with immediate absorption, which will easily and quickly enable them to increase the amount of protein in their diet. This supplement supports the development of muscle mass and accelerates the regeneration of the body while giving a great opportunity to diversify your diet.
Administration of the supplement before or after a workout favorably affects regeneration and, owing to the high content of leucine, it can also reduce drowsiness during training.
This product is ideally suited as an addition to various types of shakes, omeletes or thick toppings.
It can be successfully mixed with either water, milk or vegetable drinks.
Due to the dynamic development of the brand Muscle-zone, thereby increasing desire to meet the needs of people running a healthy and active lifestyle, we enriched our offer of sportswear (including specialist clothing), cosmetics and sports accessories, such as water bottles, shakers and pill boxes.

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.

Dietary fibre is a mixture of undigested substances and not absorbed by the human body. Due to the properties divided into: insoluble fibre (e.g. cellulose [polysaccharide] found in fruits and vegetables), partially soluble fibre (including hemicellulose occurring with cereal grains and soluble fibre (including pectin, gums, mucilages [polysaccharides]). Dietary fibre affects the digestive system and gastrointestinal system regulating its operation. By filling the stomach (satiety) reduces appetite, lowers triglycerides and cholesterol and consequently can support the weight loss process and maintain a slim body. It also affects blood glucose levels and cleansing the body of toxins. Available in powder formulations (capsules, and powders), mainly containing the soluble fraction (pectin, gums and mucilages) diet and meal replacements.
Dosage: 10-20 grams per day, before or during meals with some water.
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).
