Now you may think that digestive enzymes (that include either pepsin, papain, or papaya) are just for sandal-wearing hippies who smell like patchouli...but you'd be mistaken!
In fact, digestive enzymes help to breakd down nutrients from the food you eat into usable energy.
But another finding dug deeper and found that enzymes improved the absorption of amino acids and increased nitrogen retention.
In a recent clinical study, respondents who consumed digestive enzymes with their meals showed an increase in protein synthesis with free amino acid levels up by 100%...branched chain amino acids (BCAA's) by 250%...and nitrogen retention by 32%!
In short...MUCH better support for muscle repair and growth.
And enzymes can be especially useful for hardgainers in yet one more way...
Since protein uses up more calories in digestion, enzymes can speed up the process, reducing the "thermic effect" of ingested proteins and help you better maintain a caloric surplus for weight gain!
Look for a good digestive enzyme at your local supplement store or order online.
