Based on the latest scientific research, CNP Professional's Pro-MR meal replacement is a high protein low fat meal replacement formula that combines dietary fast and slow proteins for optimum anabolic (muscle growth) and anti-catabolic (muscle sparing) effect. Probiotic organisms have been included to help maintain and promote a healthier digestive system. Glutamine has been added in its more bio-available peptide bonded form to round off the ideal protein formula. Complex carbohydrates and a balanced vitamin and mineral profile ensure a healthy and effective approach to dietary adjustment. Pro-MR contains: Bifidus, acidophilus, yoghurt organisms, which is the healthy bacteria needed to promote an efficient digestive system, which will enable you to metabolise more nutrients. Micellar casein (milk protein) is an undenatured slow released protein, medically proven to be anti-catabolic (stopping muscle breakdown). Whey protein high fraction concentrate is an undenatured fast released protein containing higher levels of growth factors than normal whey protein concentrates. Hydrolysed whey is pre-digested to enable the amino acids to enter the bloodstream quickly. This is the first of the fast and slow proteins in Pro Peptide to be used. Whey protein is a by-product from the manufacture of cheese due to the heat-treating of milk (curds and whey). A lot of the growth factors and the amino acid cysteine become deficient because of this process. CNP's proteins are cold processed. Peptide Bonded Glutamine is an amino acid that promotes a healthy gut, increases growth hormone and is the highest amino acid found in human muscle (It would be very hard to get enough glutamine in the system from food alone). Amino acids are absorbed by molecular weight and peptide bonded amino acids are heavier than free form. Egg White has a high level of the amino acid cysteine, which is a key amino acid in maintaining muscle mass and helps protect the liver. Cysteine (Non Essential Amino Acid) plays an important role in the production of Glutathione (a small protein), which is the bodies primary anti-oxidant, which neutralises free radicalsand enhances the immune system which is important in the manufacture of muscle growth. Maltodextrin is an easily digestible form of carbohydrate made from various natural sources (e.g. corn, rice, potato and waxy maize) and is thus available in a range of DE values (dextrose equivalent). A lower D.E. value in a maltodextrin equates to a lower G.I. (glycemic index) and yes this lower G.I. material is both a reality and freely available. Pro MR contains low D.E. material. Maltodextrin is the preferred carbohydrate used in energy foods, due to its solubility, low taste profile, and quick absorption.
