TAKE A DEEPER DIVE INTO PROTEIN
|What is it?||Single, basic building blocks of proteins, enzymes, hormones, and body tissue.||A "complete" structure of the building blocks (amino acids) of body tissue, also serving as a fuel source. Essential macronutrient for muscle and tissue growth.||A type of "incomplete" protein, which does not contain all the essential and non-essential amino acids that makes up a protein structure.||Containing short chains of amino acids. Not considered a complete protein, only part of the protein chain.|
|Why this is beneficial?||Each amino acid has its own function, ranging from enzymatic functions and acting as cofactors, to heart health, neurotransmitters, tissue repair, circulation, weight management, etc.||Nourish the body and provide the building blocks of life. Can be utilized in different areas of the body, and where it is needed the most.||These types of amino acids are structural amino acids, aiding the body in keeping the integrity of collagen and helping to build new collagen.||Quickly absorbed as the body does not need to break down a full complete chain of protein. Quicker absorption facilitates quicker usage of amino acids.|
|Who would use?||Those treating specific health conditions, such as blood pressure, cognition, relaxation, hormone issues.||Those working out or leading an active lifestyle, helping to repair muscle tissue, yet not as intense care as someone who would take peptides.||Those looking to improve their collagen production, strengthen ligaments, tendons, joints, and skin. Not suitable for muscle repair.||Those doing intense workouts, competitions and strength training, needing to quickly repair and rebuild new muscle tissue.|
|When best to use?||Throughout the day, depending on the type of amino acid and treatment of their condition.||Within 30-45 minutes of working out or being physically active. Can also be used anytime during the day as a smoothie to help with nourishment.||Can be used at anytime during the day, some people will also mix it into a protein smoothie to receive the full benefits of protein, as collagen is not a complete protein structure.||During, or within 20 minutes of intense physical workout or training. The best time for muscle repair and growth is immediately following the workout, letting the amino acid peptides to be quickly absorbed and utilized.|
