Q. What Is Combat Powder?
With a precision-engineered matrix that contains whey protein concentrates, hydrolysates, and
isolates, as well as egg albumin and micellar casein, COMBAT is the ultimate timed-released protein
super-food! Because each of the distinct protein sources found within COMBAT digest at varying rates,
amino acids are not only flooded into the bloodstream within minutes after consumption, but will
continuously be "trickle fed" to your muscles for up to 8 hours afterward!
When is the best time to use Combat?
Certainly the most important times are immediately upon awakening, right after training, and just
before bed, as these are vital periods for the initiation of the growth process. However, Combat can
also be used at ANY time of day as a substitute for whole food protein.
Why not use just whey protein? Isn’t that the best source of protein?
While whey is one of the most important protein sources on the planet, it has its limitations, and
thus works best as part of a blendof proteins. You see whey protein is digested very quickly, which
causes a rapid rise in blood amino acids. While this seems like a great thing, there remains a problem.
These amino acids are cleared from the system almost immediately, which is excellent for the short
term, but does not cover the period of time between meals. However, with the addition of egg
albumin and micellar casein you will slowly trickle feed amino acids to your cells over a period of up
to 8 hours! This makes COMBAT the ultimate anabolic andanticatabolic protein matrix!
Will COMBAT mess up my stomach?
Many protein powders do.
COMBAT contains some of the best, and purest proteins currently available and is very low in
lactose. Additionally, a special digestive blend has been added to the formula to promote better
digestion and assimilation of the protein constituents. For most, COMBAT provides no stomach
Should COMBAT be mixed with milk or water?
COMBAT protein can be mixed with either depending on your tastes and goals. A thicker and richer shake will be had with the use of milk, but I only recommend this for those that are bulking up. For those looking to gain lean muscle and/or reveal more definition, I would recommend either straight water or ½ skim milk and ½ water. COMBAT tastes great either way.
Can COMBAT be used in conjunction with other MusclePharm products?
Absolutely it can! COMBAT is a perfect fit with any and all of the Muscle Pharm line of hardcore
products! In fact, COMBAT should be the foundation of your supplement program no matter what
your fitness goals entail.
How do I know how many scoops to use per serving?
Although this is difficult to answer because there are many factors involved when evaluating the
amount of protein that should be consumed per meal and on a daily basis, my general
recommendation would be:
›› 150 lbs and less
›› 1 scoop per serving
›› 151-200 lbs
›› 1.5 scoops per serving
›› 201-225 lbs – 2 scoops per serving
›› 226-250 lbs – 2.5 scoops per serving
›› 251 and up – 3 scoops per serving
Since protein already contains both glutamine and BCAA’s, why is there more added
to the formula?
BCAA’s and glutamine are the most important amino acids for muscle growth and repair, mostly
because of the roles they play in protein synthesis, immune system function, energy production,
glycogen storage, natural GH release, and the slowing of protein breakdown. Thus, we added even
more of these amazing aminos so that your results would surpass anything you have experienced with
any other protein powder!
What really sets COMBAT apart from the rest of the protein formulas out there?
Well, aside from COMBAT’s incredible protein matrix…its easy mixability…its fantastic
taste…and the added BCAA’s, glutamine and digestive complex, what really makes COMBAT special
is the fact that OMEGA WAVE technology was utilized to “precision formulate” the product (as well
as the entire Muscle Pharm line) to be the most effective of its kind. OMEGA WAVE technology is
used to monitor the function of multiple biological systems and provide a comprehensive
picture of changes in athletes, as they respond to training, life choices, and emotional stress,
diets and supplementation. No other supplement company uses such advanced technology
when designing their products.
