AST VP2 whey protein is among the top protein supplements currently on the market, and for good reason. The creation of VP2 protein was due to heavy research on how to effectively shuttle it directly to your muscles for repair and growth.
AST has worked to make this protein supplement cutting-edge, and a standalone product when you think about whey proteins. The vision for this product was to make a protein supplement that was able to send more essential amino acids to the muscle and other tissues more effectively than other products could. This advantage was made with enhanced absorption kinetics, and the result of this improved delivery system is a larger supply of critical amino acids within the muscle. This creates an anabolic state of uninterrupted, full-potential protein synthesis, which is the process that contributes to the repair and growth of lean muscle mass.
VP2 also uses cysteine to its advantage. High levels of cysteine help to channel protein metabolism, which builds an improved state for muscle growth, as well as preventing muscle breakdown. This is combined with cystine, which is a rare dipeptide that is not commonly found in foods, nor protein supplements. But how does cystine create an advantage?
Well, cystine is a crucial element to VP2 because it plays an important role in the formation of glutathione. Glutathione is an antioxidant found in sources such as plants, animals, fungi, and bacteria. It is important because it can prevent damage to important components of the body, by warding away harmful species, such as free radicals.
This antioxidant can do so much more for the athlete than this, however. It is also the third biochemical pathway leading to muscle growth and strength increases. Research has shown that consistent bouts of intense, heavy resistance training lowers glutathione levels. But with AST’s VP2, you can increase the levels of glutathione in your body after these bouts, which leads to improved cellular defence, as well as more muscle growth and increased strength levels.
This product from AST has been heavily researched, and here are some of the results that show just how powerful this protein supplement is:
11 pounds of pure muscle gained in participants
More than 3 pounds of body fat was lost, without the study placing any focus on diet
Improved a bodybuilder’s squat by 110 pounds, as well as increasing a best bench press by 45 pounds
All of the results shown above happened within a ten week span, which is almost unheard of when it comes to the impact protein supplements can have. With the heavy science placed on the creation of this supplement, as well as the proven research to back up the claims, it is clear that VP2 has changed the game when it comes to how powerful whey protein can be.
