A regular intake of high quality protein is fundamental to working muscles, allowing for effective recovery from exercise and an increase in size. Proteins are broken down into their simpler form – amino acids – which the body utilises to help resynthesise muscle fibres. MaxiNutrition Cyclone Bars contain the protein and creatine that pro-sport players require to meet their strength and power goals.
Each Cyclone Bar contains 23g of protein, to support efficient muscle gains.
They have an added 5g of creatine (per bar) which delays the onset of muscle fatigue – a mechanism which has been scientifically proven to boost power during high-intensity training.
Each bar contains 1.5g of calcium HMB – a metabolite of the essential branched chain amino acid, leucine, which is required for muscle protein synthesis.
Fortified with 3.3g of glutamine in each serving. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, where it is mostly found in muscle. It is a conditionally essential amino acid; levels of which deplete fairly rapidly during strenuous physical activity, so intake through the diet/supplementation is important for recovery.
