Making the Case for Casein

Ultimate Casein, protein, bodybuilding, supplementsExperience the Benefits of Extended Growth With a New Super-Premium Micellar Casein

BioQuest has a well-earned reputation for launching trends rather than following them, and their new premium-quality overnight, extended-release protein is just the latest example of that leadership.

In the recent past, overnight and extended-release proteins have been the “neglected stepchild” of the protein category. Many manufacturers save the spotlight for their fast-acting whey isolate and hydrolyzed whey products, while overnight formulas have been a repository for subpar protein content like whey concentrate, sodium caseinate or potassium caseinate. This refusal to bring their “A” game to the overnight protein category is a glaring omission on the part of manufacturers for a number of reasons, the most prominent of which has to do with nitrogen balance.

Maintaining a positive nitrogen balance is considered a key foundational step for maximum muscularity. Remember that nitrogen status is inextricable from your protein status because only proteins (not fats or carbs) contain nitrogen. At any given moment throughout the day, your body’s state of nitrogen balance can be characterized in one of three ways. It can be neutral, which means your diet is providing as much nitrogen as the amount of nitrogen used by the body to maintain a status quo. It can be negative, which means your diet is not providing the necessary amounts of nitrogen needed by all of the tissues of the body to adequately, repair, recover and build the proteins needed for growth.

Or your nitrogen balance can be positive.  This is the state you must achieve and as you might expect, a missed meal or snack can tilt the tables of your nitrogen balance from positive to neutral to negative very quickly. For this reason alone, the importance of a protein which allows for more of its amino acids to be available over the long term to maintain a positive balance is extremely important. This is where a superior-quality micellar casein like BioQuest’s Ultimate Casein can make all the difference.

Ultimate Casein: Bodybuilding’s First Super-Premium Micellar Casein

The research team at BioQuest has recognized the serious lack of quality extended-duration protein products in the bodybuilding marketplace. And, with Ultimate Casein, they’ve done something about it. As with every product in their line, BioQuest drives innovation by getting all the details exactly right. When looking for a protein source designed to provide support over the long haul, the search begins and ends with micellar casein. While whey protein typically provides a rapid increase in blood amino levels and protein synthesis (making it invaluable to bodybuilders), the prolonged release time typical of micellar casein has its own distinctive benefits for muscle growth support. Micellar casein forms a gel in the stomach that allows it to be absorbed slowly and steadily over a longer period of time, a process that has been shown to result in a 34% reduction in protein breakdown. This slow absorption rate allows for higher, more balanced, leucine levels over the extended period, setting the stage for an anti-catabolic effect that can last several hours. Thus, the slow digestion rate of casein effectively primes the various levels of body proteins for maximum growth and recovery.

Keep in mind when adding a casein protein to your regimen that micellar casein is the correct choice, not sodium caseinate or potassium caseinate. Some manufacturers will add these inferior forms to bulk up their casein formulas, but they do not behave the same way upon ingestion and subsequently won’t provide the same results. Micellar casein, on the other hand, is the type of casein found in milk and, most importantly, the type of casein upon which research on casein has been based.

A Superior Protein Source Specifically Designed to Go the Distance

The micellar casein in BioQuest’s new Ultimate Casein is processed via an advanced microfiltration process that yields the purest, most undenatured form with the highest amounts of bioactive peptides and other powerful growth factors. The efficacy of a superior micellar casein source has been underlined in research (Boirie, Dangin et al. 1997; Dangin, Boirie et al. 2001) which showed how the slow-digesting properties of micellar casein provide both a potent increase of critical amino acids into the blood and robust increases in muscle growth, while also invoking a powerful attenuation of protein breakdown.

The superior grade of micellar casein found in Ultimate Casein has also been enhanced with added BCAAs for even greater anabolism, plus Aminogen for more efficient absorption of amino acids. It should also be said that the inferior casein forms included in most manufacturers’ overnight proteins have developed a reputation for poor taste. The premium grade of casein in Ultra Casein, on the other hand, results in a smooth, creamy, luscious taste and texture completely unprecedented in a casein supplement.

A positive balance of nitrogen must be sustained for you to support hard-earned gains in muscle mass. To achieve this goal, research data suggests that consuming ideal amounts of a high-quality micellar casein product (such as found in Ultimate Casein) will facilitate the optimal muscular environment required for you to adapt, recover and grow. BioQuest’s latest addition to its line of proteins is essential supplementation for use at bedtime or any time during the day when you expect a sizable gap between meals.

All in all, Ultimate Casein is just what you’d expect from BioQuest: a new gold standard in the category of overnight, extended-release muscle support.

Transforming America, One Perfect Physique at a Time!

Zycor Weight Loss Diet Support

Success Stories Pour In, as New Zycor Electrifies the Bodybuilding World

The ecstatic praise that greeted the introduction of Zycor has now risen to a crescendo. Every day, new and more remarkable stories of radical transformations supported by the dramatic fat-loss power of Zycor make the rounds, as bodybuilders everywhere turn to this breakthrough fat-loss technology for the results they need.

To the canon of Zycor success stories you can now add Brian Ahlstrom. Early in 2012, Brian, co-owner of Ahlstrom Fitness Consulting, had a problem. Despite his best efforts, he was getting soft. He was getting heavy, and not in a good way. When a typical gym rat’s conditioning is off, it’s an inconvenience. When a trainer’s physique starts slipping, his very way of life is threatened. Brian Ahlstrom knew he had to correct his course, and in a hurry. He turned to Zycor, bodybuilding’s ultimate fat-loss technology from BioQuest.

“I spend my day on a gym floor. My physique is my business card,” Brian says, looking back. “Nobody wants to train with a guy who looks like he’s not serious about his work. I had heard about Zycor from people I knew in the business, and I was excited to give it a try. My initial impression was WOW!”

“I had heard a lot of good things about Zycor, but honestly never expected to see this caliber of results in such a short time. In fact, I could see truly visible changes literally within a few days of starting, and have continued to as long as I’ve been on it. Even now that I’ve reached my goals, I’m still seeing further refinement from week to week. Now I see why so many people are talking about this product. There’s really nothing else like it!”
–Brian Ahlstrom
Owner, Ahlstrom Fitness Consulting

Brian’s response is very common among athletes newly encountering Zycor. An unprecedented capacity for supporting significant fat loss coupled with a powerful energy surge has a way of creating intense loyalty. “I had a big increase in energy and my workouts were great,” Brian continues. “I would experience an energy boost within the first 30 minutes that would last most of my day. At the same time, I noticed a real increase in fat loss over the first two weeks I used Zycor. I’ve never seen a product that worked so fast.”

Significant results in just two weeks!

Brian’s experience comes as a direct result of years of intensive research and product development, a far-reaching scientific effort that has been decisively validated in clinical testing. In fact, in the combined results of two preliminary randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled studies on Meratrim™, Zycor’s ultra-potent main ingredient, subjects lost an average of 4.5 lbs in a mere 14 days! These extraordinary results continued with subjects losing a remarkable a remarkable amount of weight by the end of the 8-week studies. Subjects also achieved significant reductions in waist and hip size, which further underscores the fact that this formula is specifically attacking body fat.


Fitness professionals like Brian have also come to value Zycor for the substantial increases in stamina, work output, and all-encompassing energy increase it triggers. “The intensity of my workouts just went through the roof!” Brian remembers. “It helped considerably in my job, too. When you’re on the gym floor all day, expected to interact with clients in a very high-impact way, a product like Zycor makes all the difference. My clients definitely noticed a change!” Credit for that upsurge of energy goes to Zycor’s proprietary combination of ultra-bioactive, premium-grade energy factors precision-targeted for a smooth surge of power and intensity that can be felt within minutes and last for hours.

Onward to greater challenges

Once 201 pounds and alarmingly soft, Brian Ahlstrom is a changed man today—170 pounds of lean, rock-hard mass.  His fitness consulting business is thriving and his astounding transformation has convinced him to take on new challenges he would never have considered as recently as a year ago. “I am so much leaner and I have retained my muscle mass to an amazing degree,” he says. “In fact, this is the first time I’ve lost significant amounts of body fat without also sacrificing hard-earned muscle mass. This in itself is one of the things that has impressed me most, because few things are more difficult in the fitness world than ripping up while keeping your size. Zycor truly helped make it happen for me.”
