When you are putting in the hard work it takes to reach your goals, your muscles need extra support so you can get better results, faster. AMPED™ Tri-Release Protein was formulated to give you the sustained and enhanced muscle-building support you need.
AMPED Tri-Release Protein is a multistage, three-protein supplement formulated with 25 grams of high-quality whey protein isolate, egg white protein, and milk protein concentrate. Its fast-, medium-, and slow-release proteins, paired with the patented ingredient Velositol®§, support muscle protein synthesis (MPS) for hours, delivering optimal benefits for muscle performance and growth.
Providing the right nutrition for your muscles to limit muscle protein breakdown is important between workouts and on non-training days. By incorporating Tri-Release Protein into your Isagenix routine, you can provide this necessary support any time of the day. The unique features of nutrient timing and Velositol® supplementation make Tri-Release Protein stand apart from the competition.
Muscle Protein Synthesis
Your body goes through a metabolic process called muscle protein synthesis to either build or rebuild muscle proteins in the body. MPS is important in performance and overall health by counterbalancing the rate of muscle breakdown and decreasing the loss of lean muscle mass. If the rate of muscle breakdown is faster than MPS, loss of lean muscle mass can occur, which can hurt performance outcomes and worsen overall health.
Research suggests that combining fast- and slow-digesting proteins limits muscle protein breakdown when compared with a single protein source (1). Supplementing with AMPED Tri-Release Protein can further support MPS by combining three different protein sources and the novel patented ingredient Velositol®. Velositol® was designed to boost the increase in MPS from protein intake and exercise. It enhances the efficiency of protein by increasing amino acid uptake and provides fuel for working muscles.
Meet the Ingredients in AMPED Tri-Release Protein
Supplementing with Tri-Release Protein provides immediate and sustained support for MPS by combining three different protein sources with Velositol®.
Here’s a deeper look at the ingredients found in Tri-Release Protein.
Whey Protein Isolate
Whey protein isolate is a rapidly digested protein for fast release of amino acids. It contains high levels of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which help support MPS and recovery from exercise (2).
Egg White Protein
Egg white protein provides a slower release of amino acids. This type of protein has been traditionally viewed as a gold standard in protein quality and is abundant in BCAAs that stimulate MPS after resistance exercise (3).
Milk Protein Concentrate
Milk protein concentrate is a source of casein and digests very slowly. This type of protein reduces muscle protein breakdown and releases amino acids gradually (4).
Velositol is a patented amylopectin chromium complex designed to improve the efficiency of BCAAs to maximize MPS when combined with protein. In a clinical study, researchers showed that MPS was enhanced when participants used Velositol® after exercise compared to protein alone (5). This was achieved by enhancing the efficiency of protein by increasing amino acid uptake and providing fuel for working muscles.
How To Use AMPED Tri-Release Protein
Tri-Release Protein is a good option for those looking to lose weight, add more protein to their diet, or gain lean muscle.
It’s not a meal replacement product, but an option you can enjoy anytime to support muscle growth and enhance performance goals.
AMPED Tri-Release Protein can be used as a pre-workout supplement to support working muscles during exercise or as a post-workout supplement to support recovering muscles. It can also be used on non-training days or as a snack between meals to supplement daily protein intake.
