Plazma & MAG-10 Di-/Tripeptides


#1

I see both Plazma & MAG-10 have have the same Highly Structuralized Di-/Tripeptides listed on the label, yet the active ingredient in the store lists different key ingredients. Can I assume they both have the same Di./Tripeptides as the Key Ingredient hydrolyzed from Casein Hydrolysate aka “Bioactive Casein”?

Obviously I realize they have a different amount of carbs, electrolytes and other ingredients that makes them different. Just trying to understand from a science standpoint, thanks.

You can view the exact labels for each by clicking on “label” under each supplement in the store:

I’ve been interested in this also… as far as the pulsing goes can you use the BCAA structured peptides in replace of Mag-10? In the latest article it says you can use one or the other . Also why are we waiting an hour post workout to pulse? Can and should we be ingesting some whey immediately after or just wait to pulse?

  1. Not really the exact same effect. Mag-10 is far superior. Remember, Mag-10 is more than just BCAA.

  2. No, not if you’re using proper pre and intra workout nutrition.

Thanks Chris, I suspected it was based on your peri- workout nutrition I’m just so accustomed to getting that 35-40 grams of whey isolate immediately after regardless of intra workout nutrition… one last thing, based on finances I can really only pulse 2 times a day which as of now looks like this: workout days pulse post workout and before bed, off days pulse first thing in the morning and after lunch… do u recommend different or is that sufficient? Thanks for your time

That’s a good schedule, as long the after-lunch pulse in a few hours after lunch i.e. between lunch and dinner. It’s hard to actually “mess up” a Mag-10 pulse. Post-workout is great and many swear by pre-bed, first thing in the AM, and/or between meal pulses. A pulse is also perfect for short, intense conditioning-only workouts: drink one serving, a little before, a little during, and a little after. This can speed fat loss and prevent any catabolism.

Great advice … again thanks for your time
