GYM HIGH™ Whey Pro Synergy: A balanced protein source with all the benefits of probiotics
Proteins are the building blocks of the body, including muscles. They are essential for gaining muscle mass, strength, and endurance. In fact, most other supplements only work if protein being supplied to the body is sufficient.
Among protein supplements, whey and casein, both of which are proteins derived from milk, are preferred over other proteins due to their excellent amino acid profile. Whey and casein contain all the essential amino acids.
However, those using whey or casein know that their consumption may lead to stomach problems. Although they are entirely safe, they may cause gastrointestinal problems in some individuals. Adding probiotics may considerably improve tolerance to whey and casein. Not only that, probiotics have numerous other health benefits.
GYM HIGH™ Whey Pro Synergy contains balanced amounts of whey and casein.
Whey is the most commonly used protein supplement. Whey is loved by those looking to build muscles as it is readily absorbed, which is why people take it before or within a few hours of extensive training.
However, since it gets readily absorbed by the body, it provides only a short-term increase in amino acid level. Therefore, it may elevate the amino-acid level for a few hours only, requiring people to supplement with it multiple times a day.
Casein is digested differently. It is digested much slower than whey, and provides a consistent and prolonged supply of amino acids. It is no secret that many regenerative processes only occur while sleeping. It means that using casein along with whey may provide much-needed amino acids at night.
Thus, combining whey and casein is a much better way to supplement protein. Whey quickly increases amino acid levels in the blood, whereas casein will provide a more prolonged amino acid supply.
There are however other benefits of combining these two sources. Whey and casein have very different effects on appetite, gastrointestinal motility, and hormone secretion. Whey generally increases satiety and lowers appetite. However, using casein along with whey may help prevent these effects.
It is good to know that protein supplements have other health benefits, too. For example, whey may help reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, blood pressure, oxidative stress and may even help lower blood pressure.
Additionally, the combination of whey and casein may considerably boost post-training recovery. They may help prevent DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).
GYM HIGH™ Whey Pro Synergy has the added benefits of probiotics.
Proteins are important, but experts have noted that not all people benefit from high protein intake. And the answer to this mystery may lie in the gut. Some individuals find it difficult to digest proteins or suffer a deficiency in other bioactive compounds.
The human body has more beneficial microorganisms living in it than total body cells. As per various estimates, the total body content of these microorganisms is a few hundred grams or even more than a kilogram.
These microorganisms are essential for life (hence the name probiotic). However, science has only limited knowledge of how microbiota (microorganisms living in the human body) work. But they know that microbiota assists in digesting, producing vitamins, preventing inflammation, preventing leaky gut syndrome and much more.
GYM HIGH™ Whey Pro Synergy is among the few protein supplements with added probiotics like streptococcus thermophilus, Bifidobacterium longum, lactobacillus acidophilus, and Bifidobacterium bifidum. These microorganisms prevent the overgrowth of harmful bacteria, boosting the body’s defences, and have some other distinct health benefits, too.
- Streptococcus thermophilus
It produces lactase. It may considerably improve milk tolerance. Even if a person does not consume GYM HIGH™ Whey Pro Synergy with milk, it would still improve tolerance to protein powder. It is essential to know that all whey and casein have small amounts of lactulose.
Further, it also produces antibiotic-like substances called bacteriocins and thus helps prevent infectious diseases. It is excellent for relieving diarrhoea and other digestive issues. It may also help boost the body’s metabolism.
High protein intake results in greater production of nitrogenous toxins, which may be harmful to kidneys. Streptococcus thermophilus can prevent the production of these toxins in the intestine and may help reduce blood urea.
Other benefits of streptococcus thermophilus include improving skin health, preventing respiratory infections, lowering cholesterol, boosting antioxidants and lowering inflammation, and enhancing folic acid production. Studies also show that it may have a role in maintaining optimal growth.
- Bifidobacterium longum
It is often described as a multifunctional probiotic good for gastrointestinal health, boosting immunity, enhancing regenerative processes, and preventing infectious diseases.
Interestingly enough, some studies show that Bifidobacterium longum may also act as a microbiome modulator. It may orchestrate various activities of other microorganisms residing in the gut. Thus, it stabilizes gut health and may even help fine-tune metabolism.
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
It may boost absorption of various micronutrients, thus resulting in more significant benefits from protein supplementation. It may also help digest complex carbs, improve the intestinal barrier, prevent diarrhoea, protect from infections, play a role in the maturation of the immune system, and even help produce certain micronutrients.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is especially good for preventing gut inflammation. Studies show that it may help prevent irritable bowel disease. There is increasing evidence that it may also relieve more severe conditions like inflammatory bowel disease.
Reduced inflammation and better gut health also means better functioning of the gut-brain axis and enhanced mood.
- Bifidobacterium bifidum
Clinical trials confirm that Bifidobacterium bifidum may help digest milk better. Therefore, adding it to milk-derived products may significantly lower the risk of gastric symptoms.
However, bifidobacteria have many other amazing health benefits. It may lower the risk of colon cancer, normalize gut function, prevent diarrhoea, boost growth, reduce intestinal inflammation, regularize gut movement.
Recent studies also show that Bifidobacterium produces numerous enzymes. Thus, it appears to play a vital role in the digestion of carbohydrates.
Probiotics are safe and do not cause any side effects. They are generally regarded as safe in the UK, US, and EU.
Finally, it is worth understanding that science has just started exploring the benefits of probiotics. There is still much to be learned. For example, studies show that these bacteria produce numerous messenger proteins, helping to regulate metabolism, produce hormones, and influence brain function and mood.
GYM HIGH™ Whey Pro Synergy is among a few supplements with balanced amounts of whey and casein. But, more importantly, it comes with the health benefits of probiotics. It therefore offers a wide range of health benefits, from boosting immunity to boosting metabolism. These benefits mean faster results and optimized health.
