IRON ASS® is a lactose-free high-protein powder to support muscle increasement, based on natural ingredients without synthetic flavors, coloring and synthetic sweetener.
Natural in taste and a very good solubility. In addition to a healthy diet and frequent physical activity IRON ASS® contributes meeting protein requirement for better muscle increasement. Also suitable as meal replacement for weight reduction.
Proteins consist of amino acids needed to form new cells. The essential amino acids are important, because our body can’t form them itself. Primarily needed for muscle increasement are Valine, Leucin and Isoleucine, also known as BCAAs
(Branched-Chain Amino Acids). They occur in every protein food.
WHY CARBOHYDRATES AFTER TRAINING?
Our muscles need glucose as energy and save it in the glycogen stores, which are cleared while training. If the body only gets protein after training it will be used for glucose production.
Other than intended, the protein is not used for muscle increasement.
Therefore: Eat rapidly digestible carbohydrates such as dextrose immediately after training.
Recommended amount: Ca. 1,2g per kg body weight (not a must-have). And afterwards, it’s
best to have a balanced meal (vegetables/fruits, proteins, complex carbohydrates).
