Why: Each protein in MP is characterized by its own
amino acid profile, speed of digestion and absorption, taste and
mouthfeel. For these reasons Heflin believed that by combining them,
consumers would get a superior product. He was correct. The combination
and proportions of proteins in MP give it a taste and mouthfeel that no
other company has been able to duplicate while also allowing it to
dissolve, digest and absorb very easily. MP is ready to begin
stimulating protein synthesis, inhibiting protein breakdown and
otherwise maximizing your gains in muscle size and strength from
training almost immediately.
The top 3 personnel at the Muscle
Provider manufacturing lab ("MP lab") possess more than 100 years of
combined industry experience and include a PhD and analytical chemist.
According to the NSF (www.nsf.org), the MP lab is compliant with both
its GMP and GMP for Sport programs. This means that it has gone above
and beyond the FDA's minimum requirements for a dietary supplement
manufacturing facility and it does not produce any products with banned
substances. NSF and FDA inspectors audit the MP lab regularly to ensure
that it remains compliant.
The Quality Control team at the MP
lab subjects each batch to at least half a dozen tests including
Identity, Microbial, Protein Content, Content Uniformity, Mixing and
Stability. These help to confirm that the product you purchase from BI
contains the ingredients it is supposed to, is not contaminated, mixes
properly and remains fresh, among other things. MP's ingredients are
also specially blended so as to gently mix the proteins together without
fracturing them, something overlooked by other companies.
MP is ideal. It contains almost no lactose and zero sugar. It is also
low in sodium. Whereas other products contain large amounts of salt
(sodium chloride), through rigorous trial and error the MP lab
discovered a particular balance of proteins that allowed them to reduce
the level of salt in chocolate MP from 0.9% to 0.1%, a dramatic
reduction that further supports muscle anabolism and hardness,
as well as cardiovascular health.
1995, no one has been able to duplicate MP's delicious flavor system or
identify its precise contents. Developed by the lab's R&D team over
the course of at least five time- and labor-intensive rounds of audits,
the flavor system is unusual in many regards. For instance, whereas
other protein supplements contain added "filler" ingredients in order to
address taste, texture and/or mixability issues, BI has chosen to
conquer these challenges by adding more high-quality proteins in
particular combination's. This has resulted in a product that consumers
and food industry experts feel is truly superior in terms of its protein
density, flavor and ease with which it goes into solution.
Can consumers actually notice the difference between MP and a lower-quality protein supplement as far as how it affects
the size and strength of their muscles? Yes. Numerous factors determine the quality of the protein and non-protein
in the supplements that you consume, including the manner in which they
are manufactured. Higher-quality manufacturing methods yield proteins
with superior bioavailability. This means that more of each serving can
be absorbed by your body, and in some cases, more quickly. This directly
impacts the anabolic state of your muscles.
There are numerous
qualities, or grades, of proteins. BI instructs the MP lab to use only
the highest grades available. This is accomplished by purchasing its
proteins from the same suppliers. Consumers benefit by getting the same
exceptional anabolic potency, taste and mouthfeel with each bottle of MP
that they purchase. All stages of manufacturing are closely monitored
the Quality Control team to ensure that this remains the case.
