MAX’S ANABOLIC NIGHT PROTEIN POWDER is a slow release Protein powder with added Calming Herbs and vitamins and Minerals to help to recover and feel tired and overworked muscle tissue while your sleeping. Maxs Anabolic night is a high-quality Casein based protein that is easy to mix and tastes fantastic and we recommend this at suppkings nutrition if you want something more than Whey before you go to bed that will deliver a rich source of protein and amino acids while you sleep.
During sleep, your nerves, muscles, bones, and immune system all recover from the stresses of daily life and undergo repair, restoration and growth (in a process called anabolism – the metabolic activities that build new cells). This restoration process occurs at specific times during your sleep cycle. When you sleep you go through 5 sleep stages:
- Stage 1: The lightest stage occurs as you start falling asleep and lasts about 5 – 10 minutes
- Stage 2: Still light sleep lasting about 30 minutes but transitions you towards a deeper sleep
- Stages 3 – 4: During these stages, you move into a deep sleep or slow wave sleep lasting between 10 and 30 minutes where brain activity decreases and your body begins restoring itself mentally and physically.
- Stage 5: REM or Rapid Eye Movement Sleep, where your brain becomes more active and you dream. REM sleep can last from 5 minutes anywhere up to an hour and your body and mind continue to replenish their reserves through this stage.
During a night’s sleep, your body will cycle through stages 3, 4 and 5 several times, and it is these stages where you are properly rested and most muscle growth occurs.
- The quality of sleep during these stages has a direct impact on the amount of muscle you will build. More good quality stage 3, 4 and 5 sleep means greater muscle gains, but only if you have a ready supply of protein in your system.
- SLOW RELEASE PROTEINS ARE ESSENTIAL like casein.
- To maximize your growth potential you need a steady supply of amino acids and small peptides all night that your body can use to repair and build your muscles. This can only come from proteins that are slow releasing like red meat or chicken because fast releasing proteins (like WPI) only stay in your system for a few hours. But there is a catch. You can’t eat a big meal that’s hard to digest before bed because it will disrupt your stage 3 & 4 sleep cycles and inhibit muscle growth. That’s why MAX’S Anabolic Night is ideal because it contains medium and slow release proteins that won’t overload your system or disrupt sleep. MAX’S Anabolic Night is formulated to promote peaceful sleep right through the Stage 3, 4 & 5 sleep cycles so you recover fully and grow as much muscle as possible. Our Sustained Release Protein Blend contains:
- CALMING HERBS
Two natural herbs, Skullcap and Chamomile, are added to MAX’S Nitetime GH to help you sleep well and maximize your anabolic sleep cycles. Both herbs are widely used to promote calmness, reduce anxiety and induce sleep without side effects.
- VITAMINS AND MINERALS
These micronutrients are vital components of all muscle building biochemistry and are included to ensure optimal recovery and growth during sleep.
- Suitable For – Suitable for all levels of trainers is designed for trainers and athletes who want to maximise recovery and muscle growth during sleep. It can be used in a fat shredding, mass building or muscle maintenance program.
- Recommended Usage – Take 1 serving about 30 minutes before bed. For a fat stripping, the program adds one scoop to a blender or shaker with 200 – 250 ml of water and mix for 20 seconds until completely dispersed. For a mass building program add 1 – 2 scoops in 500ml of milk.
