Fermented Amino Acid Blend

Amino acids can be produced by a variety of different methods. One of the most common is via a harsh acid-based process that extracts them from animal products, such as duck feathers, fur and even human hair.

The amino acids in Time 4 Whey Protein Professional are produced by fermentation. This is a natural process which involves fermenting plant-based ingredients with microorganisms, like probiotic bacteria. The microorganisms use various carbon sources such as glucose and fructose to produce the amino acids.

The process is similar to how other fermented food products are made such as yogurt, beer and vinegar. As no animal products are used, and no harsh chemicals or high temperature processes are involved in production, this results in a more natural, superior quality product that is suitable for vegetarians.

(LeuSyn®: (Glycyl-L-Leucine)

Glycyl-L-leucine is our advanced leucine delivery system. Throughout this article we have seen the importance of leucine in driving muscle growth and repair. The inclusion of glycyl-L-leucine helps to enhance the speedy and efficient uptake of leucine into the muscles.

Technically speaking, Glycyl-L-leucine is a dipeptide. This is a compound that occurs when two amino acids are joined together by a peptide bond. The amino acids contained in dipeptides, can still perform their individual roles when broken down by the body but also have particular functions when in their dipeptide form.
