The Muscle Mass and Strength Building Program

MAP™ is a dietary protein substitute that provides the MAP Master Amino Acid Pattern® (U.S. Patent No. 5,132,113) a unique pattern of essential amino acids in a highly purified, free, crystalline form.

MAP™ is indicated as a safe and effective substitute for dietary proteins.

Clinical studies have shown that the use of MAP™, during physical activity, may substitute dietary proteins or protein supplements in a safer and nutritionally more efficient way to:

Optimize body protein syntheis, muscle mass, strength and endurance. Recover faster.

How does the Body’s Muscle Mass and Strength build-up?

The human brain has been programmed for primitive human behavior. As a result, the brain does not perceive physical activity as something desirable. Rather, the brain perceives it as a primitive survival activity necessary for: defending oneself from a threat, building a shelter, looking for food, etc.

While a muscle group is working, it is sending specific signals to the brain, in order to evaluate if the muscle group is fitted for that “survival” activity. If not, then physiological mechanisms are activated in order to increase that specific muscle mass and strength. Thus, enabling it to perform the necessary “survival” physical activity.

However, Body Protein Synthesis (BPS) is required to increase that muscle mass and strength. In order to achieve the Body Protein Synthesis (BPS) necessary to increase that muscle, essential nutrients must be provided, in conjunction with the required vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and essential fatty acids.

Why do most work-out programs fail to increase muscle mass and strength?

They fail because they cannot achieve the body’s positive nitrogen balance necessary to increase muscle mass and strength. This is due to:

Inappropriate Protein Intake.

  • Insufficient quantitative protein intake. And/or
  • Insufficient qualitative protein intake.

Inappropriate Physical Activity.

  • Insufficient quantitative physical activity. And/or
  • Insufficient qualitative physical activity.
  • Excessive physical activity that does not allow for muscle recovery.

Therefore, to ensure the required body’s positive nitrogen balance to increase muscle mass and strength two factors are simultaneously necessary:

  • An adequate quantitative and qualitative protein intake.
  • An adequate quantitative and qualitative physical activity.

Why, may the use of MAP™ during physical activity, be safer, nutritionally more effective and convenient than dietary proteins or protein supplements?

1. MAP™ provides a 99% Net Nitrogen Utilization (NNU).

This means that 99% of MAP's constituent amino acids act as precursors for BPS to become body’s constituent proteins. By comparison, the most nutritious dietary proteins, such as meat, fish or poultry provide an average of 32% NNU. Consequently, only 32% of their constituent amino acids can act as precursors for BPS. Meanwhile, most protein supplements only provide an average of 16% NNU, because they use milk, soy, casein or whey as their primary protein source. As a result, only 16% of their constituent amino acids act as precursors for BPS. Therefore, dietary proteins provide a BPS that is at least 3 times lower, compared to MAP™. While, protein supplements provide a BPS that is at least 6 times lower, compared to MAP™.

 

Master Amino Acid Pattern, digested in 23 minutes.

2. MAP™ is absorbed in the small intestine within 23 minutes from its ingestion.

By comparison, dietary proteins and protein supplements need from 3 to 6 hours to be digested. This is 6 to 12 times longer compared to MAP™.

Therefore, by taking MAP™ during physical activity in substitution of dietary proteins or protein supplements:

  • Additional weight of dietary proteins in the process of digestion may be avoided. As a result, physical activity may be performed with a lighter body weight. Thus, physical performance may be improved.
  • Furthermore, the blood supply required to digest dietary proteins may be avoided. As result, the blood supply necessary during physical activity may be optimized. Thus, physical performance may be improved.
BPS over time calculation

By knowing a protein’s NNU (%) and its digestion time (min), a protein BPS/min ratio can be calculated

MAP has a very high BPS

3.  MAP™ BPS/min is 99% NNU/ 23 min.

By comparison the most nutritious dietary proteins have a BPS/min of 32% NNU/180-360 min. This means that the BPS/min of dietary proteins is 24 to 48 times lower compared to MAP™. Meanwhile, protein supplements have a BPS/min of 16% NNU/180-360 minutes. This means that the BPS/min ratio of protein supplements is 48 to 96 times lower compared to MAP™.

MAP releases virtually no harmful nitrogen waste.

4. MAP™ releases only 1% nitrogen catabolites, namely metabolic toxic waste.

By comparison, dietary proteins and protein supplements release an average of 68-84% nitrogen catabolites. This is 68 to 84 times more metabolic toxic waste compared to MAP™. Therefore by taking MAP™ in substitution of dietary proteins or protein supplements, overloading of the liver and kidney functions may be prevented. Thus, physical activity may be healthier and more effective.

5. MAP™ provides only 0.04 Kcal/g.

Therefore by taking MAP™ in substitution of dietary proteins or protein supplements, unwanted calories may be avoided. Thus, physical performance may be improved.

6. MAP™ does not produce any fecal residue.

Therefore by taking MAP™ in substitution of dietary proteins or protein supplements, unwanted diarrhea episodes may be avoided or reduced. Thus, physical performance may be improved.

7. MAP™ is amphoteric.

This means that MAP™ can act either as an acid or a base. Therefore, MAP™ use is not contraindicated during gastric ulcer. Thus, physical performance may be improved.

8. MAP™ in contrast with any dietary protein or protein supplement is:

  • 100% sodium free. Which may help to control sodium intake.
  • 100% fat free. Which may help to control fat intake.
  • 100% sugar free. Which may help to control sugar intake.
MAP increases BPS while decreasing harmful nitrogen waste, digestive loading, and calorie intake.
