SmartProtein3D™ is a scientific blend of 3 protein sources: whey, casein and soy protein. International research has shown that a blend of proteins provides a more balanced amino acid (building blocks of protein) profile than a single protein source. Another benefit of the SmartProtein3D™ protein blend is the different digestion rates of the various proteins. Whey has a fast digestion rate, soy an intermediate digestion rate and casein a slow digestion rate. This means amino acids from this protein blend are absorbed into the body over a longer period of time, thereby optimising the muscle synthesis and repair process post exercise.
SmartProtein3D™ is classified as a complete protein as it provides 19 amino acids, including 9 essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body and need to be consumed in the diet.
FUTURELIFE® HIGH PROTEIN Smart food™, HIGH PROTEIN Shake, High Protein Bar and High Protein LITE Bar have all been formulated with SmartProtein3D™
