It is common knowledge that the protein and nutrients found in eggs is extremely important to muscle build-up. Thanks to Optimum Nutrition, that effect has been doubled by a few key changes that have been made to nature’s original formula. By themselves, eggs contain a lot of cholesterol and fat, neither of which is productive to a healthy body. On the other hand, those same eggs that hold so much fat and cholesterol also contain 26 grams of protein, not to mention potassium, B12, Magnesium, Calcium, niacin, phosphorus, choline, copper, riboflavin, selenium, Zinc, folate, and Iron, all of which can be found in the egg whites.
The Truth About Egg Protein
Thankfully, Optimum Nutrition has found a way to balance all of the benefits found in the egg whites with all of the nutrients present in the yolk.
Most would think that once the yolk (the quote unquote bad part) is removed, then there’s nothing more to worry about. The truth is that egg whites also have a lot of sodium present, about 403 mg to be exact. They also have a lot less nutrients than the yolk of the egg. What this all breaks down to is that the egg is like a double edged sword as far as health is concerned.
Aminogen: A Quality Protein
Thankfully, Optimum Nutrition has found a way to balance all of the benefits found in the egg whites with all of the nutrients present in the yolk. That discovery was thanks in part to Aminogen. Aminogen has been proven to increase the levels of amino acids in your body by a significant amount. Not only that but it also increases the preservation of nitrogen. This particular product also has BCAA, or branched chain amino acids. These include essential amino acids like Leucine, Valine, and Isoleucine.
Contains Essential Amino Acids
What makes these amino acids so important is that your body is unable to produce them on its own. Instead of your body metabolizing them in the liver, they metabolize in the muscles. When proteins are broken down into amino acids after being digested, these amino acids are then either used as building blocks for new protein, or they are burned to produce Energy for the body.
All of these factors are important for any type of athlete, and in 100% Egg Protein you’ll get 5 grams of BCAAs with each serving. Combining the BCAA and Aminogen with the benefits found in regular eggs, it’s only a matter of time before you’re seeing this product in gym bags all over the place.
