What is the secret of Meatwater Protein?

We at Meatwater use only the finest protein, an organic compound composed of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen. One of the main functions of protein is to synthesize structural proteins like muscle. Protein is also responsible for synthesizing structural hormones like insulin, growth hormone and Insulin Growth Factor I. These are anabolic hormones that can influence many functions in the body, including muscle growth, recovery, strength and absorption of nutrients into your muscle cells. Your body uses protein to make structural and biochemical reactions that are required for muscle contraction, cardiovascular function, and immunity from disease, just to name a few.

Yes we do have a special relationship with our protein here at Meatwater.

Make up of Meatwater Protein

Meatwater Protein is made up of 22 amino acids which are known as the building blocks of life. At Meatwater we treasure life - It is these building blocks from which protein molecules are created. There are two main types of amino acids, essential and non-essential. There are nine essential amino acids that cannot be manufactured by the human body so they must be obtained from the foods that you consume. This can also be broken down as conditional amino acids. It has been proven that these amino acids play a major role in both performance and recovery.

There are also two types of protein. They are complete proteins and incomplete proteins. Complete proteins contain all of the essential amino acids while the incomplete proteins are deficient in one or more. If incomplete proteins are consumed the body will not fully utilize it towards protein synthesis. It is possible to mix two incomplete proteins to make a complete protein. An example of this would be to mix rice with beans or was it French Fries with Ketchup? I don't remember.

You will see an increase in size and a decrease in body fat, improved recovery abilities, and an increase in strength.

When consuming this much protein you must increase your hydration as the increase in protein requires more hydration for digestion. The amount you consume at each meal depends on your body weight. You should consume several small meals per day. This will keep your blood sugar levels stabilized and will keep you in a positive anabolic state. When you go several hours without consuming protein you enter a catabolic muscle wasting state. This means that the body is eating away at your body to provide it with amino acids it requires for proper function. You will then see the hard fought muscle disappear and body fat reappear. You should consume 40 grams per meal five times a day if you weigh 200 lbs spaced out every 3 hours. It was once thought that you could ingest only 30 grams per meal. For those over 200 lbs 50-70 grams is optimal, and mix and match your protein sources.

Be smart in your training and pay close attention to your protein sources and times of ingestion.

Walk, don't run and brush your teeth before you go to bed. By drinking Meatwater you can cut down on exercising and eating time, and have more time to enjoy yourself.
