1.) Question: Is ProSynthesis-17 the highest dosed EAA product in the world?
Answer: Yes. A recent market analysis shows that ProSynthesis-17 provides roughly 250%-800% more EAAs, per serving, than the competition. This is important, as the body’s ability to synthesize new tissue is directly dependent on the number of building blocks (e.g., essential amino acids) available for use. Each serving of ProSynthesis-17 provides a whopping 25 grams of EAAs, in addition to 10 grams of CEAAs & growth agents. No other product even comes close.
2.) Question: Is ProSynthesis-17 a better value than other EAA products?
Answer: Yes. ProSynthesis-17 provides more amino acids, at a better price, than any other product on the market. Each container of ProSynthesis-17 contains 1050 grams of total amino acids for less money than most companies charge for half that amount.
3.) Question: Is ProSynthesis-17 the most effective EAA product on the market?
Answer: Yes. There are several reasons for this, some of which include: greater increases in plasma amino acid concentrations, greater increases in protein synthesis, a more pronounced anti-catabolic effect, the ability to initiate mTOR priming, the stimulation of mTOR through multiple pathways, a vastly superior amino acid ratio for improved growth efficiency, improvements in BCAA bioavailability, enhanced nitric oxide production, and many other reasons.
4.) Question: Is ProSynthesis-17 more anabolic than whey protein or whole-food?
Answer: Yes. Recent research shows that just 6 grams of EAAs stimulates protein synthesis to a greater degree than 30 grams of whey protein. Recent research also shows that EAAs improve performance, strength and fat loss more effectively than whey protein.
5.) Question: Is ProSynthesis-17 a better value than whey protein?
Answer: Yes. You would need to purchase roughly 4 pounds of whey protein in order to obtain the same amount of EAAs found in a single container of ProSynthesis-17. Considering the price of whey protein today, ProSynthesis-17 is certainly the more cost-effective option.
In terms of potency equivalents, each serving or ProSynthesis-17 contains the same amount of EAAs found in 60+ grams of whey protein or 65+ grams of protein from red meat, but that only tells part of the story. In reality, a single serving of ProSynthesis-17 is far more anabolic than either of those options. Why? The answer lies in the product’s rapidity of absorption.
Because ProSynthesis-17 is absorbed so quickly, there is a massive influx of amino acids into the bloodstream, causing the body to enter a state known as peak aminoacidemia. During this state, the body undergoes an incredible boost in protein synthesis, as well as the immediate cessation of protein breakdown. Protein powders, and especially whole food, simply cannot compete on the same level. Once you factor in the other growth agents within ProSynthesis-17, such as betaine, citrulline, etc., nothing else on the market even comes close.
6.) Question: Is ProSynthesis-17 more conducive to fat loss than whey protein?
Answer: Yes. A single serving of ProSyntheis-17 provides roughly 1/3rd fewer calories than an equivalent amount of EAAs from whey protein, while also providing zero fat and zero carbohydrates. In addition, research has demonstrated the ability of EAAs promote a greater reduction in adipose tissue (e.g., body fat) in comparison to whey protein.
7.) Question: Is ProSynthesis-17 less likely to cause digestive issues than protein powders?
Answer: Yes. ProSynthesis-17 provides instantized free-form amino acids. These amino acids require no digestion, but are immediately passed from the stomach to the small intestine, where they are absorbed almost instantly. Because free-form amino acids do not require digestion and are absorbed with near 100% efficiency, the likelihood of experiencing digestive difficulties, such as gas, nausea or bloating, is dramatically reduced.
8.) Question: I’ve noticed that many of today’s EAA products contain very low doses of tryptophan and especially, methionine. Is this important?
Answer: Yes! It’s extremely important! This is because the body requires all 9 EAAs in a set ratio in order to build muscle tissue. If the body runs out of even one of these amino acids, muscle growth stops dead in its tracks, rendering the remaining EAAs completely useless! Therefore, it makes sense to formulate an EAA product with the same amino acid ratio that the body uses to build muscle tissue.
Unfortunately, most of today’s EEA products do not do this. In fact, the amino acid ratio of most of these products is so poor, that up to 95% of the EAAs they provide are completely squandered (i.e., can NOT be used for muscle growth) unless you provide the body with additional methionine and tryptophan through supplementation or food!
Why would a company make an EAA product that can’t even stand on its own two feet? Well, I’m going to answer it for you right now and you probably won’t like the answer! Like many things in this industry, the answer comes down to profit! You see, amino acids like methionine and tryptophan are more difficult to flavor than others (especially methionine), so they sacrifice their product’s effectiveness for enhanced palatability. In doing so, they are hoping that you will be persuaded to continue buying their product over their competition.
Of course, they don’t tell you this because it sounds bad...and it sounds bad because it is bad! But there is a 2nd reason why they hide this fact from you...and it's because they think you'll never know! They are acutely aware that it's notoriously difficult, if not impossible, for most customers to measure exactly how much benefit their EAA product is providing. Therefore, most companies just focus on pleasing your palate, while selling you a very poorly formulated product. They think that if their product tastes even 10% better than the competition, that you'll keep buying it without ever knowing that you're largely wasting your money.
Here at MA Labs, this is something we will NEVER do. It goes against not only the company’s mission statement, but against every inclination I personally possess as a product formulator. We always prioritize results above all else and we believe most people demand the same. If not, there are plenty of other less effective EAA products on the market. With that said, you can rest assured that ProSynthesis-17 still tastes great!
