Fellas, I used to also believe the “more is better” when it comes to protein intake. And yes, some studies do indicate more is better…sometimes.
But di/tri-peptides and free aminos are different beasts than whole proteins. 40 grams or more of whole proteins will take time to digest and be broken down (even whey isolate) and give a slower steady stream of aminos to the blood. Di/tri-peptides or free aminos take almost no time at all to hit the bloodstream all at once. No…I do not believe the body can assimulate past a certain acute threshold of aminos in the blood.
I go by personal experience and my own blood work to determine what works best for me (because I do not believe any of us are the same and generalities arrived at by most studies do not necessarily apply to all). My resting blood sugar levels INCREASED when I was doing double dosing of MAG-10 (or a similiar product with NO carbs in it) versus when I only pulsed with one serving at a time. THAT tells me double dosing surpassed my own body’s ability to assimulate the aminos and use them for what I want them to be used for: muscle building. Some of it was being converted to sugar.
Now, with Micro-PA, “maybe” the machinery is turned on a bit faster to allow my body to assimulate more substrate; this I will have to see. Starting point as always will be what Biotest recommends, then I’ll start doing slow tweaks to the protocol based on my bloodwork feedback. I am very very curious and interested in what Micro-PA can do.
