Glossary of Ingredients
Whey Protein Concentrate
Whey protein is manufactured from Sweet Cheese Whey using advanced cross-flow membrane filtration. It is then agglomerated and instantised to ensure perfect mixability. The process is carried out at low temperatures so that the resulting whey protein remains entirely un-de-natured which is extremely important when choosing a whey protein. Un-de-natured whey protein preserves vital protein fractions, such as lactoferrin and imnunoglobulins resulting in a whey protein with the highest possible amino acid profile and nutritional value.
Maltodextrin is a glucose polymer which is technically a complex carbohydrate, although it has a high GI rating which ensures rapid release of energy. This makes it a good choice for after training or a workout particularly in combination with whey proteins and creatine. Maltodextrin is manufactured from starch and gets its name due to the formation of dextros polymers of different lengths. Although maltodextrin is a high GI carbohydrate, the GI scale is only relevant to ingredients tested in isolation. When combined with other nutrients such as low glycemic carbohydrates, proteins and fats, the GI of maltodextrin reduces significantly meaning that the instant spike takes place over a longer period of time. In essence, the inclusion of maltodextrin in to an all-in-one formula such as Core Complete allows the important nutrients such as protein to be delivered to the muscle cells gradually rather than all at once.
Fine Oat Flour
Made by Scottish oats which are a low GI carbohydrate and also high in fibre and contains over 10% protein. In addition fine oat flour contains other vital nutrients such as calcium, zinc, iron, folic acid and vitamin E. When fine oat flour is combined with higher GI carbohydrates and whey proteins it provides the ultimate post workout combination. Oats have also been found to reduce cholesterol levels.
Whey Protein Hydrolysate
Whey protein hydrolysate is manufactured from Sweet Cheese Whey using an advanced combination of ultra micro filtration processes ensuring minimal protein de-naturing and maximum protein integrity. It is the 100% pure form of whey protein isolate and is the fastest absorbing and most easily digested version of all of the whey proteins. The long protein chains go through a thermal processing called “Enzymatic Hydrolysis” in order to break them down into small chain peptides; this process allows muscles to repair and grow faster and more efficiently than ever. Whey hydrolysate not only has a faster absorption rate to regular whey protein concentrates or isolates but also has excellent nutritional profile with over 90% protein content and with low levels of carbohydrate, lactose and fat.
Whey Protein Isolate
Whey protein isolate is manufactured from Sweet Cheese Whey using an advanced combination of ultra and micro filtration processes, ensuring minimal protein denaturing and maximum protein integrity. The process has produced a very high percentage of pure protein which is virtually lactose free, carbohydrate free, fat free and cholesterol free. Whey isolate has significant advantages over other proteins, the first being its absorbability which aids recovery and promotes muscle growth. The breakdown of protein sources and achieve this growth/recovery the body has to use digestive enzymes however these are limited in quantity. When these enzymes run out, the body loses its ability to digest these protein sources. Whey protein isolate is comprised mainly of short chain proteins in amino acids and the digestion is therefore much simpler and faster than other protein sources allowing the protein quicker access to muscle tissue thus aiding your growth and recovery.
Peptide Bonded Glutamine
Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid that is depleted during strenuous exercise. In the bodybuilding world, glutamine is synonymous with recovery, muscle loss prevention and immune functions. Glutamine peptides are a superior form of glutamine and are absorbed more regularly by the body, due to their peptide bonded structure. This peptide bonding also makes them more stable than L-Glutamine resulting in more of the glutamine been actually utilised.
Regular L-Glutamine is known as “freeform” glutamine. This is because it is free from being bonded to by other amino acids. In contrast glutamine peptides are not freeform, they are bonded to by other amino acids and peptides, making them more stable and faster absorbent.
Barley starch is an alternative carbohydrate source that has a low glycemic index and is high in fibre. It is also rich in beta glucan, fibre, highly biovaluable proteins, essential fats, enzymes and minerals. Due to low glycemic index, when mixed with other carbohydrates and whey protein it creates the ultimate post workout supplement. Beta glucan is a powerful immune system enhancer that has been proven to stimulate the immune system thus protecting the body from viral and bacterial infections.
Creatine nitrate is a form of creatine bound with a nitrate group which increases the rate of absorption into the muscles when compared to creatine monohydrate and also reduces any potential water retention. Creatine helps increase the body’s ability to produce energy meaning you can train harder, for longer, more often and is considered most effective in high intensity or explosive training.
Creatine gluconate is essentially creatine bonded with glucose which enhances the uptake of the creatine and delivers it to muscles at rapid speed. Creatine gluconate is been included with more and more creatine formulas like Core Complete, for this very reason. Creatine gluconate does not occur naturally and has been synthetically engineered as a sports nutritional supplement, and primarily athletes and bodybuilders who wish to enhance their performance.
Creatine increases the production of high intensity, short term energy output. This is ideal for sprinters and weightlifters, or anybody involved in sport or events where explosive movements are required. It also benefits football players, rugby players and any person involved in endurance events where an explosive movement may be required at some point such as a burst of speed. Creatine enables the user to perform under greater resistance and to a greater intensity. In the gym this could mean lifting heavy weights, using higher amounts of repetitions, or performing more sets. To adapt to this greater workload the muscle will need to grow bigger and stronger. To this extent it is important to be aware that the creatine supplements do not directly increase muscle size, they simply allow you to train harder, faster and longer. Your muscles are therefore forced to adapt to this by increasing in size. When training intensely it is inevitable that your will suffer some form of muscle tissue breakdown. In males creatine has been shown to be anti-catabolic in that it reduces this muscle tissue breakdown by slowing the oxidisation of leucine.
Creatine also improves recovery times in the user. High amounts of muscle creatine enable the re-synthesis of creatine phosphate from creatine and phosphate, which ultimately results in faster recovery so not only can supplementing with creatine allow you to train harder, faster and longer but it can also lay you to train more frequently. Whether that be a higher output during exercise or simply a greater number of training sessions.
There are a lot of misconceptions floating around regarding the use of creatine as a dietary supplement. We are commonly asked “is creatine bad for me” and “what are the side effects of creatine”. The simply answer to the above is that creatine is not a most heavily researched nutritional supplement ever. Even with long periods of continued use, and extremely high dosages, creatine has not been shown to cause any adverse effects whatsoever. Combine this with the fact that many of us ingest high levels of creatine through our diet anyway, there is no reason to doubt its safety.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a species of gram positive bacteria that occurs naturally in the human and animal gastrointestinal track and mouth and are considered to have probiotic characteristics. Scientific evidence suggests that this type of friendly bacteria has positive effects on the immune system and may also potentially have anti-inflammatory effects.
Orafti Synergy 1
Orafti synergy 1 is a unique composition of oligofructose and inulin that has been specifically formulated to improve digestive health in general and bone health in particular. It is a unique combination and contains a specific distribution of carefully selected lengths of chicory Beneo. It has a mixture of non-digestible carbohydrates containing the fair maintainable plant fructan oligosacarid and inulin with potential pre-biotic activity.
