Whats the best supplement for

The absorption of protein? and what' good for recovery after a weights session?

I've been advised that the body can only process 50g of protein per meal - is this right?

Cheers

A long way to go but i'll get there

After a weight session an isolate protein + simple carb is good.

The 50g/30g per meal thing is thrown around alot.
Depends on frequency of meals?
How much training you have done?
What you current size is? etc.

Too many variables to simply state is "any more than 50 g" is waste.

Why would you need something to help you "absorb" protein?
 
Unless you've got something wrong with you the body should be able to digest and absorb the protein you eat just fine.

50g of protein - too much. I do not believe so at all, obviously within reason. To be honest though I cannot think of a need to eat more then 50g protein in one meal. If you look at your calorie and protein requirements per day and roughly divide the protein into the number of meals being eaten - say 6-7 meals. 7 meals of 50g of protein would be 350g a day and for most people this is ample.

It is important to replace glycogen and provide quality protein after a session and the faster more available the source for these carbs and protein then generally the better.

There is a product I know of which is ideal in respect to this post.

That's broscience, the body digests food at different rates, have a large casein meal for example, will still be digesting and providing amino acids to your body up to around 8 hours later.

Unless you're having say more than 50g of whey isolate and nothing else, dot worry about eating more than a specific amount.


Gear by need to build muscle is the product jw300898 is referring to.

I haven't used it myself, however going by the product description: 
"When you take 2-4 capsules of Gear with your meals, it not only provides you with valuable, high quality aminos, serum proteins, and fractionated whey; it also provides you with the bioactive enzymes your body needs to convert that protein into muscle." I think its exactly what you are looking for OP.

I would imagine even with your edit you would still be outside the strict rules. The link is a no-no! Any mention of your products only directly asked is a no-no!

I understand but would have thought with Vibora having named the product it would then be ok - no problems I shall make 100% sure :-)

But Vibora only named the product as you had linked to it and discussed it with out naming it!

Just to clarify I am not trying to get on your back/compete/rep wars/ with you. Was just saving you the hassle of having your post flagged by someone else and osagi/ian/james coming in with their ruler and slapping you .

I like the look of the NTBM range btw.

LOL - hijacked this thread now havent we - sorry OP!

I took no offence of any sort - I actually welcomed your comment and took it on board as I do not wish to upset anyone on here. Truth be told I am on 3-4 forums and all have fractionally different rules and levels of tolerance etc and it can become a bit of a blur and in my enthusiasm for posting may not always give sufficent time to engage the brain to contemplate where I am and which rule set to adhere to :-)

Glad you like the look of the range too!

Gear is interesting. I've recently been upping the luxury level of my protein.

i used to use unflavoured, then flavoured whey by MP. I recently bought a few tubs of the USN IGF1, amazing deal and that should last me a few days (perhaps a little more). Gear sounds interesting, especially as I'm planning on cutting and have a lot of long hour days ahead.

If the OP is referring to utilisation of amino acids for skeletal muscle repair then additional Leucine could be looked at, although a large amount of protein (~50g) would likely cover the 4g necessary to elicit spiking muscle protein synthesis.

Has anyone ever managed to get pure leucine to mix and not form a grainy floating skin round the beaker/glass spoon or tongue, wondered if there was a trick to it....................?

I agree a supplement that contains Whey / Carbs and Leucine will cover your bases.

Isn't that half the fun adding more water to get it all? Haha agree with whey + carbs + leucine for post workout.

Micronised L-Leucine is mega expensive and no-one really carries it.

Whey, Carbs, Leucine and (only personal pref) L-Glut for post workout.

I think fats are supposed to help with nutrient absorption. After weights I think fast digesting carbs like maltodextrin and whey are the best. At other times I think slow digesting ones are best.

Fats slow down the nutrient absorption.
