Recharge and repair so you can do it all again, sooner. Vega Sport Performance Protein repairs and builds muscle tissue to assist in recovery.
Consuming protein, especially branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) after a workout helps your body to rebuild muscle, and reduces recovery time. With a reduced recovery time, you’ll be able to push harder and train more often, naturally building strength.
Build and repair muscle
Besides recovering faster, in order to build strength you have to repair and rebuild your muscle. Training breaks down muscle—you have to break down muscle to build it stronger.
Leucine, isoleucine and valine are branched chain amino acids (BCAA) which act as signaling molecules to stimulate protein synthesis after exercise. These amino acids aid in transitioning your body from a catabolic (breaking down of muscle during exercise) to an anabolic (repair and rebuild) state. Glutamine is an additional amino acid which repairs muscle cells after exercise. Vega Sport Performance Protein contains 25 grams complete protein and 5,000 mg each of both BCAAs and L-glutamine.
Reduce recovery time
Beyond repairing muscle and building strength, immune function is another element of recovery. Vega Sport Performance Protein contains the amino acid L-Glutamine which is fuel for immune cells. Since intense exercise reduces glutamine in your blood, consuming 5,000 mg of glutamine in Vega Sport Performance Protein after exercise can help to support your immune system.
