A study published in the jornal PLOS ONE (1) found found positive effects of supplementation with Whey Protein in the gains of lean body mass and strength in its healthy men.
The study focused on older healthy men, because they wanted to check the effects of the whey protein supplementation in a group that naturally has gradual loss of muscle, process known as sarcopenia.
The study included 49 men aged 70 year and older who received the whey supplement combo or a placebo for 6 weeks. At the end of this period, the participants continued their supplementation plan while engaging in a resistance and high intensity interval training program for another 12 weeks.
The combo the participants received contained a mix of Whey Protein, calcium, creatine, omega-3 and vitamin D.
At the end of the six weeks period, those who received the whey protein combo experienced an increase in the lean body mass as well as strength. While both groups experienced gains in strength during the second phase of the study, those participants who supplemented with the whey combo had greater upper body strength than the placebo group.
We are glad to hear such results specially because our Whey Protein is formulated with 100% natural ingredients and contains Collagen Peptides to enrich the supplement, supplying a unique composition of amino-acids.
Our Collagen contains 18 amino acids, the building blocks of our tissues and the primary component of proteins. Glycine, proline and hydroxyproline represent around 50% of total Collagen amino acid content; the glycine and proline concentration in Gracie Whey is 10 to 20 times higher than in other collagen proteins. As a result our product offers health benefits that cannot be found in any other protein source offering multiple benefits linked to muscles, athlete performance and connective tissue support.
We also are proud of the formulation of our Gracie Pre-Workout which contains 2g of Creatine per 2 scoops dose. Creatine monohydrate is the most effective dietary supplement in terms of muscle mass and strength gains. Creatine can help support protein synthesis, which helps muscles grow. Creatine supplementation has been studied for over 80 years – broad use of this substance has only gained popularity in the past decade.
