Athletes who incorporate both Acacia Soy Totalé™ and Acacia Whey Totalé™ in their nutritional regimes greatly benefit from their different rates of digestion and amino acid absorption. Whey protein is high in branched chain amino acids, used as an important energy source by the body during exercise, while soy protein has high amounts of the amino acids Arginine and Glutamine.
Arginine is well known as a stimulant of anabolic hormones that stimulate muscle formation, while Glutamine is considered essential during metabolic stress.
