How Your Body Makes Protein – The Key To Living Stronger and Bolder!


How does your body make protein and why does
it matter? Because maintaining protein synthesis as you
age improves energy, balance, recovery, metabolism and of course, strength. It’s the key to living stronger and bolder! Two-thirds of your body mass is made up of
protein – your organs, skin, nails, hair and, of course, muscle. And this protein is in a constant state of
turnover – older, damaged proteins are broken down while new proteins are created. Protein is made up of 20 amino acids. When protein is broken down, it’s amino
acids are released into the bloodstream. Some of these AA’s are reused to make new
protein. Some however, are too damaged and are eliminated
from the body. This means your body needs a steady supply
of new amino acids. Some amino acids can be made right in the
body, in the liver – these are called non-essential amino acids. But 9 cannot be made by the body. These 9 are known as essential amino acids
because they must be supplied by your diet – from protein sources like meat, dairy, eggs,
grains, etc. Your body breaks down these ingested proteins
into amino acids and then uses them to make new protein. Unfortunately, as you age, getting the proper
balance of essential amino acids becomes harder. Staying active is more difficult. Injuries pile up. Your metabolism changes, hormones change and
digestive issues can make it tougher to build the quality muscle of your youth. When your body doesn’t ingest the essential
amino acids it needs, it will start breaking down skeletal muscle to maintain vital organs
and other functions. Your skeletal muscle is the body’s reservoir
for essential amino acid when dietary sources are lacking. Eating your way out of this problem isn’t
the answer. The caloric intake for alone for meeting the
essential amino acid demand is unsustainable. Plus, eating excessive amounts of protein
is hard on your liver and kidneys. Digestive issues and lack of enzymes can prevent
ingested proteins from being fully broken down. So even if the government RDA of protein is
consumed, your body still may not be receiving the essential amino acids it needs. And even if your body does receive adequate
essential amino acids after age 40, your body just doesn’t trigger protein synthesis,
or the creation of muscle protein, like it did when you were younger. This is also known as anabolic resistance
– your body is resistant to building new muscle. This is likely why you don’t see many pro
athletes over 40. And why the elderly can seem to waste away. Their skeletal muscle is needed to replenish
essential amino acids. Exactly how these proteins are made is the
key to understanding why Dr. Wolfe’s formula in MyoHealth is so effective. Here’s Dr. Wolfe explaining just how your
body creates protein. “The process of protein synthesis involves
a lot of steps. The word protein synthesis means that the
proteins in the muscle are composed of 20 different amino acids and they’re in a very
specified order and amount. The process first has to be initiated. And there’s a whole series of intracellular
molecules that are involved in the initiation or starting up of the whole process. And that’s where the branched chained amino
acids play a role in terms of activating this process of the whole production of muscle
protein. You’ve probably heard of the RNA and DNA
and so forth, the gist of this that is important to remember is that the RNA then dictates
the order in which the amino acids are hooked together into an intact protein. And you have to have, when you go along this
chain of the production of the muscle protein, the next amino acid is called for, you have
to have that amino acid available for the production to continue. So if you don’t have all the amino acids
available, the production of the protein will stop at that point and you won’t have a
complete protein. You need two things to be accomplished, this
molecular initiation and starting the whole process, but then you need all of the amino
acids available as the messenger RNA calls for that amino acid to be the next one in
line. If it’s not there, that’s the end of protein
synthesis. So this is why we’ve incorporated a high
dose of the branch chained amino acids but also all of the other amino acids in the proper
proportion so that there’s never a point at which the production of protein stops because
we’re short of one.” Dr. Wolfe’s research spans 30 years and
is backed by 25 human clinical studies. His formula is 3X more effective than the
highest quality whey protein, and shown to increase protein synthesis by 141% AT REST
and by 290% AFTER exercise. Don’t settle with old and frail. Stay strong and bold with a daily dose of
