Research shows the amino acid Leucine enhances the advantages found in whey protein, therefore maximizing the benefits. Adding more Leucine to its formula is how Body Art is different from other protein supplements. The advantages of added leucine applies to a wide variety of athletes and consumers further differentiating Body Art from the competition.
Leucine is a Branch Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) found primarily in the muscles. Leucine can be broken down by the muscles at a faster rate allowing it to be burned as fuel. One of biggest advantages of Leucine is its ability to directly stimulate the muscle building pathway mTOR and activate muscle protein synthesis. For the athlete, this leads to increased lean muscle mass and strength. For athletes over 30, muscle protein synthesis combined with resistance training helps maintain muscle mass and slow the progression of age-related muscle loss.
The timing of protein consumption is a bit different for everyone depending on your goals. Following weight lifting or a strength workout, Body Art should be consumed within 30 minutes. Following a cardio workout, Body Art should be consumed within 45 minutes after heart rate has returned to normal. (This will take advantage of the fat burning pathway AMPK. It is suggested you do not exceed 60 minutes of cardio training because your body will become resistant and the stimulating effects of Body Art will be hindered.)
Body Art Protein can also be taken in the morning or as a snack to ensure adequate protein consumption and prevent you from getting hungry or over eating later in the day.
