It’s been shown that people tend to overestimate their actual nutrient consumption when trying to gain muscle and brawn. In other words, they eat less than they think and they need for steady and significant progress! Everybody seeks the magic bullet while ignoring the fact that nothing is more powerful than the consistent consumption of proper amount of total calories, energizing carbs and muscle building protein. Couple this with the fact that many athletes don’t invest time in the proven method of keeping a food log and the best practical solution left for most may be to rely on the daily use of a JUMBO type shake that can really help to take in enough nutrients to progress. With 50 grams of one of the highest quality protein per serving, a large dose of energy dense 6-carb matrix, the nutritional side of the equation is significantly boosted for you by JUMBO!
JUMBO is designed with whey protein. Dietary proteins are the source of nitrogen and indispensable amino acids, which the body requires for tissue growth and maintenance. Therefore, JUMBO’s protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.* Whey protein from milk is a so-called complete protein, because it provides the body with all necessary amino acids, including the 9 amino acids (i.e. Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine) that are considered essential for life, because the body cannot synthesize them. Determination of the nutritional efficiency of protein in the diet is in most cases based on estimating the extent to which dietary protein nitrogen is absorbed and retained by the body and is able to balance daily nitrogen losses.
Net Protein Utilisation (NPU) is the percentage of ingested nitrogen that is retained in the body, and the Biological Value (BV) gives the percentage of absorbed nitrogen that is retained. Biological Value is the product of NPU and digestibility. Whey protein has good digestibility and amino acid composition, thus it’s Biological Value is great compared to other dietary protein sources like meat, fish, eggs or soy. JUMBO features our “6-CARB” carbohydrate blend that includes oat flour, Palatinose™ and native waxy maize food starch. The “JUMBO” extra ingredient matrix provides a good dose of our proprietary “CREA-BOMB multi-component creatine matrix”! At least a 3 g daily dose of Creatine is scientifically proven to increase performance in successive burst of short-term, high intensity exercise like weight training and interval cardio.* We also added extra amino acids on top of the amounts coming from protein, including essential ones.
In the “Support complex” you’ll find Magnesium in a dose that contributes to normal protein synthesis, to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue, to normal functioning of the nervous system (neurotransmission and muscle contraction including heart muscle), to normal energy-yielding metabolism, to electrolyte balance, to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, and has a role in the process of cell division.* Finally, we also added BioPerine®, a patented black pepper extract.
Mix 1 serving (220 g) in 400 ml liquid daily and take it preferably right after training.
