Protesamine® MCU-20® is Yamamoto® Nutrition's new and innovative patent, destined to take the vision of the amino acid-based food supplement class to an absolute new level, developed from the continuous study and careful analysis of the progress of research and vehicle technologies, to increasingly meet the needs of an increasingly vast and demanding sports food supplement market, but one that is often too boastful, commercial or confusing.

The current amino acid formulations on the market for the most part follow a 'standard' line, which features branched or essential amino acids, with approximate and often 'questionable' stoichiometric balances, from the point of view of scientific evidence, where these sequences are often unbalanced on exaggerated contributions on the leucine component or on the side of the ratio of methionine to cysteine, exposing one to a greater risk of toxicity from increased homocysteine.

The formulation in the Protesamine® patent aims to meet the body's requirements in certain situations as effectively and efficiently as possible, not limiting itself to the 9 essential amino acids (if you include Histidine, considered 'essential' in the growth phases), but making use of the enhancing support of other amino acids defined as 'semi-essential' such as Cysteine and Tyrosine. The bioactive 'usefulness' of these appropriately balanced intakes comes in for strong support in conditions of particular need in the body, such as during muscular growth phases, where there is a strong need for amino acid requirements, in unbalanced dietary conditions or at times of severe organic stress, to which athletes are frequently subjected. An efficient intake of valuable plastic amino acid material at certain times and situations will ensure that muscles are better 'protected' and strengthened in reconstruction processes, with less risk of protein catabolism, in favour of faster muscle, energy and immune recovery.

The exclusive technology of Protesamine® is linked to the MCU-20® microencapsulated transport system, an innovative added value, which makes this amino acid team from plant fermentation extraordinarily soluble, without presenting any residual particles in solution, being extraordinarily rapid in being absorbed, and above all through which its bioavailability is guaranteed to be complete, compared to common amino acid mixtures.

Protesamine® is an amino acid matrix providing the PROfessional Technology of ESsential AMINor Evolved, an exclusive and patented composition (Patent NO. 102020000021664) of free-form, plant-fermented and ultra-purified amino acids.

Protesamine® is a formulation that aims to meet the body's demands for protein amino acids in the most effective and efficient way possible. Thus Protesamine®:

  • **Enhances protein synthesis for the reconstruction of muscle fibres after training.
  • Strong support in conditions of particular need in the body, such as during muscle growth phases, in unbalanced dietary conditions or at times of severe physical fatigue.
  • Maximum nitrogen retention without generating nitrogenous waste thanks to an optimal stoichiometric balance between the various amino acids that make up the patent unlike the various formulas on the market that cannot guarantee optimal absorption.
  • **Trophism support of the body's main tissues.
  • Hair, skin and nail maintenance.

Protesamine® uses the MCU-20® transport system. Micro Capsules Unity 2020 allows the Protesamine® amino acid matrix to be fully absorbed in the intestines, circumventing the problems typical of amino acid supplements that have severe solubility difficulties. Are you sure you absorb what you ingest? Protesamine® ensures that the valuable amino acid matrix reaches its destination, in your muscles!

What are the benefits of the MCU-20® transport system?

The active ingredients in supplements play some important roles in cases of low dietary intake or increased need (physical activity). Despite this, the evaluation of their properties is rather limited due, in some cases (such as amino acids), to their low solubility, stability and bioavailability. In this sense, nanotechnology may represent an innovative approach: nanoparticles can in fact increase the solubility and stability of substances, improve their absorption, protect them from biodegradation, prolong their circulation time and thus their biological activity. The MCU-20® microencapsulation process of Protesamine® therefore increases solubility and improves absorption compared to normal tablets or capsules, whether animal or vegetable, as they are only and purely for containment purposes. Microencapsulation results in a very efficient release of the active ingredient as it increases its ability to interact with the body. The active ingredient in Protesamine® is encapsulated within a particle that can be as small as 1 μm. A common tablet may contain millions of microcapsules, each capable of releasing the active ingredient into the body. Compared to a common tablet, in which the active ingredient is packed, microcapsules have a greater surface area, which increases solubility and efficacy. So MCU-20® microencapsulation:

  • Increases the solubility and stability of the active ingredients.
  • Increases bioavailability and improves absorption
  • Increases bioactivity of active ingredients

compared to normal tablets or capsules, both animal and vegetable, as they have only and purely restraining purposes
