R1 Protein is a whey protein isolate (WPI), whey protein hydrosylate blend making for a rapidly absorbing source of protein. WPI is known as one of the puresest protein sources and is one of the best options for post-workout recovery due to its rapid absorption rate. The addition of whey protein hydrosylate to R1 Protein WPI makes for an even more superior protein. Whey protein hydrosylate has undergone a process where the protein is broken down into di and tri peptieds. Put basically whey protein hydrosylate has been pre-digested to make it more easily absorbed and utilised.
Rule 1 Protein WPI contains zero sugars, zero fat, zero gluten and zero lactose. But more importantly what is does contain is over 6g of the branch chain amino acids (BCAA's) per 25 g of protein in each serving. The BCAA's, leucine, isoleucine and valine are commonly reffered to as the recovery bcaa's. When you think about this, recovery is the most important step in building muscle. Muscle growth occurs when the muscle tissue is damaged during exercise (micro-tears of the tissue happens) and the growth occurs when this tissue is repaired. Also of paramount imprortance in the repair process is the timining of your protein. To take advantage of the "anabolic window", Rule 1 R1 Protein should be taken immediately after training (within 1 hour) to deliver this high quality protein to the muscle tissue to begin recovery.
Rule 1 R1 Protein contains a high protein ratio at 87% depending on flavour which is higher than alot of its competitors. After researching the industry to see what we could do better, at Rule 1 we believe we have created a clean, pure source of high quality protein. With zero gums, zero fillers and zero amino spiking R1 Protein is ideal for lean muscle mass gains.
Who would benefit from using Rule 1 R1 Protein?
Protein is often thought of as only being used by big, burly guys in the gym. Well R1 protein can be used by these guys but is also ideal for anyone undertaking intense physical activity who would like to recover and perform better. R1 Protein is so versatile it can be used by weight trainers, crossfit, swimmers or sports team competitors. Being a high protein, low carbohdyrate formula that supports the production of lean muscle mass, this is also one for the girls.
How to use Rule 1 R1 Protein:
Mix 1 scoop of R1 Protein with 250ml of cold water and shake. If you don't have a shaker cup R1 protein is fully instantised so can be just mixed in a cup with a spoon. R1 Protein is best taken immediately post exercise or workout or can be used at any time of the day to increase the protein content of your diet.
