AURORA, ILLINOIS – APRIL 8TH, 2008. For muscle size and strength gains, hard-training athletes need high-quality proteins to fuel recovery and growth. Fast-acting proteins like whey isolates and hydrolyzed peptides are ideal right before and after a session at the gym. Between meals, intermediate proteins derived from milk or eggs are better for keeping the body fueled and hunger in check. Then, just before bed, a slowly digested casein protein can fuel anabolic as well as anti-catabolic activity while the athlete sleeps – and the majority of muscle recovery takes place. With the sustained-release properties of 10 unique protein sources, Optimum Nutrition’s new NitroCore 24™ protein blend is an effective choice for any of these applications.
“NitroCore 24™ is an easy to mix, richly flavored protein powder that can be used any time of the day or night,” said Paul Michihara, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development with ON in Aurora. “It’s fast, intermediate and slowly digested proteins eliminate the guesswork concerning what protein to take when, and healthy Omega and MCT lipids provide energy while really enhancing the taste factor.” Each scoop of NitroCore 24™ provides 24 grams of high-quality protein and 5 grams of hunger-satisfying dietary fiber.
