Rapid Protein Absorption – Science proves it!
Dr. Joyce Gilbert
Provide Gold™-one shot protein is an advanced liquid formula of ready-to-drink, super-concentrated, Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein consumed in a small one-ounce serving.
Developed by a team of health research professionals, this proprietary formulation of protein is pre-digested with fruit enzymes, allowing rapid delivery of nearly 100% absorption at the cellular level. Provide Gold™-one shot protein is qualified as a medical food by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.*
“Because Provide Gold™ is concentrated and predigested, the complete amino acid profile is in a form that can be immediately used by the body to build muscle and aid in recovery – allowing athletes to enjoy the powerful benefits of hydrolyzed protein WHILE exercising,” said Dr. Joyce Gilbert, PhD, RD, LD/N Magaram Center for Food Science, Nutrition & Dietetics at California State University Northridge (CSUN).
“Protein molecules are notoriously hard to break-down by the body. There is usually a long time lag between eating protein and its' eventual absorption and utilization by the body,”said Gilbert. “For example, some protein products will not benefit the body for many hours. However, Provide Gold™ is different in that it benefits the body immediately rebuilding muscles and aiding in recovery.”
Taurine for Max Power
A key ingredient in Provide Gold™ is Taurine, which acts quickly to open cells for the hydrolyzed collagen protein to enter and rebuild muscles and aid in recovery.
“The Taurine in Provide Gold™ has multiple biological and metabolic functions,” said Gilbert. This particular amino acid is an antioxidant that conjugates biliary acids, detoxifies some xenobiotics and modulates intracellular calcium levels.”
“The Taurine in Provide Gold™ also reduces oxidative stress under extreme physical exertion where lactic acid builds up in the muscle. The taurine decreases this fatigue of oxidative stress and aids in recovery,” added Dr. Gilbert. “Additionally, at the cellular level Provide Gold™’s Taurine regulates inter-cell calcium levels, balancing the sodium levels outside the cell and potassium levels inside the cell, keeping electrolytes stable across the cell.”
“The liquid protein formulation in Provide Gold™ also has been shown to aid in adipose tissue regulation, or how fat is stored and used in the body to develop energy stores.”
