AST VP2 is a high-grade protein supplement, that the manufacturer claims to use superior protein technology in obtaining precision engineered whey peptide isolate fractions. Each serving delivers 23 grams of high-value protein and only one gram of fat.
Whey protein supplied by AST VP2 is a concentrated source of non-essential and essential amino acids provided in powder form. As a supplement, whey protein powder is effective in increasing muscle tissue repair for body builders and athletes in general. High concentrations of branched chain amino acids allow for direct uptake by muscle during exercise.
As well as being a nutritional supplement, whey protein is also linked with a variety of health benefits such as: being linked to a reduction in incidence of some forms of cancer, maintaining bone mineral density (helping prevent osteoporosis, especially in post-menopausal women), reducing cholesterol and lowering general symptoms of menopause. Whey protein powder components reduce the levels of angiotension-converting enzyme (ACE) which is linked to peripheral hypertension.
In short, according to the manufacturer, Myoplex offers the following:
- 42g protein complex to support lean mass
- Good source of vitamins and minerals
- Convenient, great-tasting performance nutrition
How Does AST VP2 Work?
The recent explosion of the whey protein supplement brand market and the accompanying propaganda hype about the ‘miracle’ effects of whey protein supplementation are just the industry picking up on what professional bodybuilders and athletes of all kinds have known for ages. Protein is essential to muscle development. It’s as simple as that.
Protein levels in the body are depleted during workouts, and protein contains amino acids, both essential and non-essential, that fuel the rebuilding of muscle, and are a precursor necerassy for it. Whey protein happens to contain them at the right level for rapid intake and usage, increasing both hormonal and cellular response if taken right after a workout. It than helps build muscle, reduces muscle deterioration (preventing overtraining), and enhances endurance. The benefit of whey protein is that it contains branched-chain amino acids that are specific due to their ability to be metalbolised directly into the muscle instead of the liver like other amino acids, thus improving your bodybuilding or fitness training.
Studies show that too many carbohydrates increases the levels of serotonin crossing over the brain barrier, thereby inducing drowsiness. Fat, although shunned by some, is highly concentrated energy source (double that of protein and carbohydrates) supplying the body with fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.
Fat is also a necessary component of all cell membranes, nerve covering, digestive secretions and most importantly, hormone production. A diet too low in fats may actually impair growth (For these reasons, small amounts of necessary dietary fat is contained in VP2).
How To Take AST VP2 and AST VP2 Dosage and Administration
Add one heaping AST VP2 scoop to 8 ounces of your favorite cold liquid (water, milk, etc.). VP2 starts dissolving instantly. Just a few turns with a spoon or shakes in a shaker bottle and it’s completely mixed and ready to drink.
When to use: Take 1 serving of VP2 30 minutes before training and another serving immediately after training. On non-training days use VP2 two to three times daily.
AST VP2 Precautions and Contraindications
Do not overload on AST VP2, or any other form of fitness/bodybuilding products. While they might not be harmful by themselves, if they are not used in accordance with instructions and not accompanied with a regular excercise program, they may lead to unwanted weight gain. Supplemets do not build muscle – excercise does.
Attention Phenylketonurics: AST VP2 Contains phenylalanine.
