PROTEIN 101

Developed for competition athletes, made for YOU. Whether you are an athletic competitor, are serious about fitness and the way your body looks, or are simply looking to improve your health and well-being by staying active, our delicious shake helps make it easier to accomplish your goals.*

Since whey rapidly increases protein synthesis and casein blocks protein breakdown, several scientific studies indicate that a combination of both is ideal.*

The protein complex found in IRONMAN® products was developed to provide a unique protein balance in order to maximize physical activity, optimize endurance and aid recovery.* Our special balanced protein formula includes three different protein sources:

  1. PREMIUM WHEY ISOLATE for immediate delivery and rapid absorption*
  2. WHEY CONCENTRATE for continuous absorption during physical activity*
  3. MILK TYPE CASEIN with slow but steady release of amino acids into circulation for recovery and protein balance*

Formulated by sports nutrition scientists and professional nutritionists, IRONMAN® Endurance Optimized Whey Protein delivers superior levels of lean protein with fewer calories and less fat than other leading brands. Its smooth, delicious taste is made only from natural sources, like rich Swiss cocoa, Tahitian vanilla beans and wholesome honey.

  • Whey protein contains a high concentration of BCAAs, such as leucine, isoleucine & valine. These amino acids are important in helping maintain muscle tissues before, during & after exercise.*

PATENTED INGREDIENTS

There are countless varieties of protein supplements out there but none can stand against our scientifically formulated IRONMAN® Endurance Optimized Whey Protein. Each ingredient works hard to support energy production, promote blood flow, provide maximum recovery BCAAs and promote balance in the body after stress occurs - all in one delicious, gluten-free option.*

A clinically tested, American Institute of Stress certified, all natural, patented extract to help neutralize occasional stress on the mind and body. It provides adaptogenic properties by regulating levels of cortisol, the "stress hormone".*

  • Helps inhibit fatigue, tension and exhaustion from everyday stressors*
  • Helps promote mental clarity, concentration and alertness*
  • Helps enhance balanced energy levels for physical performance and endurance*
  • Improved Muscle Building
    An increase in blood flow to muscle cells delivers a greater degree of intracellular pressure, resulting in a larger cell volume and improved muscle pumps, not to mention improved hormone transport to help build muscles.*
  • Improved Nutrient Delivery
    Blood delivers vital nutrients to muscle cells. An increase in blood flow and nutrient delivery allows for improved performance, recovery and endurance.*
  • Improved Oxygen Delivery
    An increase in oxygen delivery yields improved performance, cell recovery and muscle endurance.*
  • Improved Waste Removal
    Improved blood flow also yields a faster removal of cellular waste such as lactic acid, urea and carbon dioxide. This allows the potential to push sets and workouts harder, and maybe even get that extra rep or two.*
  • Improved Body Temperature Regulation
    Stay cooler and feel better. Proper body temperature regulation will allow for better hydration and potentially better performance.*

The digestive proteases in Aminogen® help break down ingested protein into individual amino acids. The amino acids are then absorbed by the body to maintain and repair damaged cells, muscle tissue, and organs.*

  • Aminogen® aids digestion.*

CarnoSyn® beta-alanine delivers a bio-friendly form of beta-alanine, a naturally occuring beta amino acid essential for the synthesis of muscle carnosine.* Muscle carnosine acts as a buffer, delaying the onset of muscle fatigue and failure.*

  • Extends endurance*
  • Enhances peak performance capabilities*
  • Suitable for all levels of activity

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Nutritional Questions

We use whey concentrates and isolates for their superior absorption in the body. We also add a special high quality slow release milk casein.

The unique protein matrix combines amino acids and other ingredients to help deliver immediate, continuous and delayed releases of protein. This enables high performance during activity and promotes longer term endurance and enhanced recovery after exercise or activity.*

Yes. The 30 grams of protein listed in IRONMAN® formulas is derived from actual protein sources. “Spiking” occurs when nitrogen producing ingredients are added in order to register higher protein levels during tests. We do not agree with or engage in this practice.

Branch chain amino acids. Their structure differs from other amino acids. They help increase the rate of protein synthesis and a cell's capacity for protein synthesis. BCAAs are naturally found in whey, but the IRONMAN® formula also provides incremental free-form BCAAs that are more easily absorbed in the bloodstream and do not require digestion.*

Use Questions

We suggest that you speak with your doctor or nutritionist if you have specific dose-related questions or concerns. While the suggested daily dose is 1-2 scoops, your nutritional needs may demand more or less protein.

The suggested daily dose of 1-2 scoops may be taken at any time of day, though we recommend splitting up the scoops to maximize protein absorption. For example, 1 scoop in the morning and one later in the day, or if used in conjunction with physical exercise, 1 scoop before activity and 1 scoop after activity.

Product Questions

The product is formulated, manufactured and packaged in California, U.S.A. The product is made by International Vitamin Corporation, one of the most respected and fastest growing nutritional companies in America.

Unlike many other products, the IRONMAN® formula contains no artificial flavors or sweeteners. Flavors are from natural sources, like real vanilla and chocolate extracts and powders. We use real honey and stevia to sweeten the product. Stevia is a natural leaf extract. More honey is used in our formulas than stevia; it costs more but the taste is worth it.

All whey proteins have “milk” listed as an allergen, including IRONMAN®. Soy is also present. Please read the product’s ingredient list carefully to avoid other potential allergens you may be allergic to.
