THE PERFECT PROTEIN!
Why Protein? Protein is essential to our metabolism. Its role in growth, muscle repair, enzymatic reactions and other vital functions crucial to our well-being have been extensively documented. PRO-SCORE 100 gives you a concentrated source of nitrogen-rich protein that is easy-to digest, glutamine-rich, low-fat and lactose-free. In addition, it has the highest and most complete essential amino acid score meeting the strict protein standards issued by the FAO/WHO*.
More Protein-Dense Than a Steak
A single serving of PRO-SCORE 100 can deliver up to 34 g of protein. That's more protein than one chicken breast, three times more protein than 2 whole eggs and, gram-for-gram more protein-dense than a sirloin steak (see reference chart below).PRO-SCORE 100 contains a blend of six different dairy proteins for fast and slow protein-nitrogen release. This enables you to enjoy two major benefits: 1) Quickly digest and assimilate the nitrogen and amino acids crucial to muscle recovery. 2) Benefit from a continuous and sustained stream of easy-to-digest protein for long-term muscle growth and recovery, fat metabolism and immune system function.
Glutamine is essential to your muscles. It is also essential to your digestive tract, the portal by which all nutrients must pass before they enter your body. PRO-SCORE 100 is glutamine-enriched to help your body maintain existing muscle while at the same time help to improve the transport of nutrients.
Hydrolysis = Allergen-Free Whey Protein
Since dairy proteins may be harder to digest for some individuals, PRO-SCORE 100 is not only lactose-free, but it also contains hydrolyzed whey proteins. Hydrolyzing the whey proteins allows more protein nitrogen to be delivered into the body in the form of di- and tri peptides. Hydrolyzing the proteins also cleaves the beta-lactoglobulin fraction - disabling its allergic potential. The result: increased biological value and maximum protein nitrogen retention.
Ideal Amino Acid Profile
PRO-SCORE 100 contains the highest level of essential amino acids meeting the strict criteria established by the FAO/WHO for the golden standard of protein - whole egg. This key feature allows you to utilize the protein more effectively for growth and recovery.
PRO-SCORE 100 uses the most sophisticated enzymatic and low temperature processing methods available today to preserve the integrity and bio-availability of the proteins and help prevent the nutrient loss common to other lower quality protein formulations. These advanced processing methods, in combination with premium quality ingredients, make this product more expensive than mainstream protein supplements. The additional investment is a commitment to health, fitness and the absolute highest quality protein supplement in the world. We think your body is worth it - do you?
PRO-SCORE 100: an ideal protein source to facilitate recovery from many medical conditions.
PRO-SCORE 100 is not only an ideal protein source for athletes and dieters, but also for individuals recovering from trauma and medical conditions such as surgery, wasting syndrome, gastrointestinal disorders, and other conditions for which protein uptake is crucial to recovery.
PRO-SCORE 100 comes in three delicious flavors - Chocolate, Vanilla, and Natural that are great by themselves or combined with other supplements and conventional foods to bump-up their protein content. The Natural flavor is great for combining with fruit dishes, oatmeal, and other dishes (after cooking). Have fun and experiment!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. If both are whey proteins, then what's the difference between PRO-SCORE 100 and PURE WHEY PROTEIN STACK?
A. Although both are whey proteins, PRO-SCORE 100 is a hydrolyzed whey protein that is lactose-free making it hypoallergenic. PRO-SCORE 100 is also low in fat and is enhanced with additional L-glutamine and essential amino acids. Its amino acid profile yields a higher metabolic score, which improves nitrogen retention.
Q. How does hydrolysis make PRO-SCORE 100 a better whey protein?
A. Although commercial whey proteins are a very good protein source, they are dairy proteins and as such, are harder to digest than egg or beef proteins. This is due in part to the presence of the allergens, lactose and beta-lactoglobulin. These components, found normally in dairy (cow's) milk, may impede proper nutrient transport. Specifically, in the case of beta-lactoglobulin, which is a protein fraction that is not found in substantial levels in human milk, it can cause allergic reactions. For this reason, PRO-SCORE 100 is not only lactose-free, but it is also hydrolyzed. Hydrolyzing the whey proteins allows more protein nitrogen to be delivered into the body in the form of di- and tri-peptides, and it also breaks down the beta lactoglobulin fraction - disabling its allergenic potential. The result: increased biological value and maximum protein nitrogen retention.
Q. WHY PRO-SCORE 100 IS A SUPERIOR WHEY PROTEIN
A. In order to understand why Pro-Score 100 is superior to a conventional whey protein we need to cover a few basic facts about whey proteins in general. This will make it much easier for you to understand exactly why Pro-Score 100 is unique. Once you are familiar with the finer points of whey proteins you will also clearly see why Pro-Score 100 is far superior to conventional and less expensive proteins.
Q. Where does whey protein come from?
A. All whey protein is derived from milk. Milk is an excellent protein source in it's own right, however milk has a number of drawbacks that make it a poor choice as a primary protein source. The number one drawback is milk proteins are difficult to digest.
Unaltered, whey protein contains lactose and beta-lactoglobulin, both of which are common allergens. Lactose is the milk sugar present in milk, both dairy and human breast milk. On the other hand, beta-lactoglobulin is a whey protein fraction native found in dairy milk but not in human breast milk.
Aside from causing allergic reactions in susceptible people, these same compounds make milk more difficult to digest while doing nothing to improve the bioavailability of the proteins which the milk contains.
Luckily, advances in food science has enabled us to remove lactose and beta-lactoglobulin through a process called hydrolysis. Hydrolysis uses enzymes to alter the whey protein structure, breaking it down into smaller, more available fragments called peptides.
Peptides contain all the valuable amino acids found in whey protein, but without the allergic reactions and difficult digestion typical of unhydrolyzed whey proteins.
While this might not seem like a big difference on paper, within your body this makes all the difference in the world. That's because your body doesn't see peptides as foreign substances, but rather as friendly nitrogen and amino acids. Remember, amino acids are the building blocks of protein and nitrogen is an compound absolutely essential to the anabolic process of building or repairing muscle.
It is this specialized process of hydrolyzation that makes the protein in Pro-Score 100 so much more efficient than conventional whey proteins. Although this extra step increases the cost of Pro-Score 100 it guarantees that more of the protein you consume will be used to build muscle.
Pro-Score 100 was the first whey protein supplement to use "hydrolyzed whey proteins" and is still the whey protein with the highes
