Protein supplements come in many different forms. Often, they are put into three categories… 1) Fast Absorption (Whey Protein Isolate, Hydrolysed Whey Protein and Essential Amino Acids), 2) Sustained Absorption (Whey Protein Concentrate, Plant Based Protein and Food) and 3) Slow Absorption (Casein and Food).

Ideally you want to get most of your protein from high quality food. However, around training (Before, During and After) food is digested too slowly and with your blood flow predominantly in pumping to your muscles it is critical to use a fast absorbing protein like Amino Switch. This will supply your body with all the Essential Amino Acids and Nutrients required to reduce muscle breakdown and rapidly assist in muscle recovery without the excess calories.  

Drug Testing: It is important to note that some of the ingredients found in sports nutrition supplements may return a positive test to banned substances in sports. This does not mean they are illegal. Alpha-1 Nutrition has a 100% Open Label policy. Therefore, what’s on the label is in the product… No More and No Less! It is the responsibility of the user to check the ingredients with their sport’s governing body.
