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.
