    GEAR







    Protein is one of the best – and worst – understood macronutrients in the bodybuilding world. Every bodybuilder knows they need at least a gram of protein per pound of bodyweight, but very little is understood about the quality of protein.







    That’s like telling someone they need to drive 100 miles to get to your house, but not telling them what direction!







    Proteins are just long chains built up from “links” of various individual amino acids. Some of

    those links are like titanium: essential amino acids. Other links are more like regular old iron: non-essential amino acids. Joining two amino acids together with each other forms a dipeptide, three joined togetherform a tripeptide, etc…Once we get 50 amino acids all joined together, we have a protein – the chain made from all of the little links.





    If we were making a chain, we want it to be strong, right? In fact, if we could, we would want to make the entire chain from titanium. Well, it’s the same when we look at a chain of amino acids. We want it to be made from high quality links. This is because the ratio of one amino acid to another determines the overall quality (or strength) of the chain. The highest quality, most anabolic protein sources all have an amino acid chain that is most closely associated with natural human protein.



    Gear is an advanced protein delivery system and nutrition octane booster!







    When you take 2-4 capsules of Gear with your meals, it not only provides you with valuable, high quality aminos, serum proteins, and fractionated whey; it also provides you with the bioactive enzymes your body needs to convert that protein into muscle. It’s like taking a pill that turns every meal into a high-quality protein shake!





    Once in the body, protein is broken back down into smaller peptides (dipeptides, tripeptides, etc…) and individual amino acids in the gastrointestinal tract, after which they’re sent to the liver, kidney and eventually the blood, thereby raising blood plasma levels of amino acids. When those get high enough, we see increased protein synthesis, which results in the accrual of muscle tissue. This is an anabolic effect – an increase in muscle mass. As you can see, the processing and digestion (breaking down) of proteins back into aminos is very important! If you’re not digesting your protein, then your body isn’t going to use it, which is exactly why we at Need To Build Muscle formulated Gear with loads of high quality digestive enzymes, like Aminogen and Bromelein.



    GEAR uses a concentrated form of protein that is both ENLARGED and FRACTIONED. In other words, each amino molecule not only encompasses more space, it is split into “micro molecules” which essentially increases the bio-availability ten-fold!







    A single gram of protein becomes more like TEN grams of super boiavalable protein!







    On top of that, Gear uses the power of Super Plasma Blood Serum Protein. Studies have shown that test animals fed a comparable calorie diet with Super Plasma Serum grew an average of 20% LARGER than those on a diet without it. How can that be? Because Super Plasma Serum is the protein that already exists in the blood plasma. It’s instantly recognized as “useable”. It’s like adding blood to your blood - there is no conversion! Whatever you add is “more”. That’s what happens with Super Plasma Serum. It’s essentially instant muscle! Since the actual amino molecule of SPS is FOUR TIMES LARGER than that of meat, egg or whey protein it can be dispersed over a greater area of the intestines, allowing for maximum nitrogen dispersion. The extraordinary growth potential from Super Plasma Serum may also be due to the fact that it contains the highest IGF-1 level of any natural food source.





    This is the closest thing to actual “injectable aminos”, which is what the pros have been using for years, BUT AT A FRACTION OF THE COST!







    Super Plasma Protein is protein isolate and made from hydrolyzed animal plasma. Because of its high concentration of bioactive proteins, peptides, and potent amino acid profile, this protein has been used to increase growth in multiple animal studies.





    When we look at proteins, we want to make sure the chains are made from as many high quality links as possible, because once the protein is in your body, your body breaks it back down into those same links, and uses it to produce more muscle. Proteins are in a constant state of synthesis, being built up and broken down. If you’re breaking them down at an accelerated rate, with intense weight training, you need to replenish them at an increased rate as well. When you go to the local hardware store to buy a chain, you can ask them how strong it is (its tensile strength). This tells you how much pressure the chain can take before it snaps. Try

    going to a restaurant and asking about the amino acid chains in their chicken cordon blue. They’ll look at you like you’re crazy! Most bodybuilders can rattle off the exact amount of protein in a glass of milk or a 6 oz. steak, but they have no idea about the quality of that protein or the rate at which there body will absorb this protein. That’s a huge mistake, and it’s like buying a chain without knowing what it’s made of. Who cares if it is 50 feet long, if it’s made of paper?



    Scientists have figured out a way to measure protein quality, just like they’ve figured out ways to figure out how strong different metals are.







    Protein Efficiency Ratio, or P.E. R. was one of the earliest ways they used to gauge the quality of various proteins. It was based on dividing body mass gains versus the amount of ingested protein. You might expect milk protein rates very highly, while corn, oats and other plant sourced

    proteins rank poorly.







    Click below to see Computed Protein Effeciency Ratio of Illinois Bundleflower Seed Protein.



    http://oi55.tinypic.com/nb3hhx.jpg







    Biological Value (B.V.) is another method used for determining the quality of various proteins. This method basically looks at the amount of protein consumed versus the amount excreted, with the logic that the rest of the protein is being retained by the body.













    Blood serum proteins have a Digestibility above 90% and a protein efficiency ratio (PER) of 2.8! . THE HIGHEST SCORE EVER! In fact off the charts. But the power of blood serum protein does not stop there. Read the next part.



    The problem with BV is that it doesn’t tell us how much of that protein is being digested adequately, only that it’s not being excreted. Neither of these two protein measurement systems are widely used any longer because they’ve given way to another measure of protein quality, known as the protein-digestibility amino acid score (PCDAAS). This is the most accurate method of ranking various proteins, and it’s the one currently being used by scientists and doctors. This score ranks the essential amino acid content of various proteins and compares them with amino acid requirements in humans. The amino acid that is represented most poorly is found to be the limiting amino acid (the weakest link of our chain), and that system ultimately determines which protein sources provide the most abundant supply of amino acids that match human protein needs. Of course, this isn’t just science, it’s what we see in the real world too. How many people get huge by eating wheat protein? Nobody. As you can see from this chart, the stuff that ranks the most highly is the stuff that makes all of the top bodybuilders huge –whey protein, beef, eggs, and milk.









    Of course, nobody eats a meal of just one food, right? People combine their foods at meal time, and if they’re smart, they can make some of those poor quality proteins into better ones. This is why we always see vegetarians combining certain plant-based foods; rice and beans, for example. Rice is deficient of several aminos that beans have in abundance.







    The amino acids lacking in one food is made up for in a different food.







    This strategy of combining foods is exactly what we’re doing with Gear! We have included branched chain amino acids, as well as amino rich superfoods like Super Plasma Protein, a protein isolate made from hydrolyzed blood plasma proteins.





    With Gear, you can have a peanut butter sandwich, (not a great source of quality protein) and the digestive enzymes will ensure that you’re processing every single gram, while the BCAAs, Super Plasma Protein, and Whey Protein Isolates fill in the missing aminos. It’s like turning every peanut butter sandwich, slice of pizza, and piece of French toast into a protein shake! A banana split is always going to have a lot of fat and sugar, but with Gear, at least it’ll also have a lot of

    high quality protein as well.





    So we basically need two things from our proteins:





    1. We need to be able to process these proteins and break them down into amino acids, (we need them to be digestible).



    2. We need to have the proper amino acid ratio, (we don’t want to be limited by missing aminos).



    And that’s really it! When we talk about protein quality, we’re really only saying that they have a proper amino acid profile, and its digestibility.







    When we talk about Gear, we’re talking about making everything you eat into a high quality, easily digestible, source of protein!

    This seems sort of similar to the idea (well, part of the idea) behind TheSIZE, if this stuff is meant to be taken with meals - leucine for increased protein synthesis, and Aminogen to help break the protein from the meal down more.

    That's the impression that I got. Similar to theSize.



    I might suggest this is tested by someone who is extremely strict in their dieting and low in bf.



    Two posters come to mind in this regard.

    2. Vain68



    Both seem to be able to report slight differences in their physiology and both seem to have a pretty steady physical status that they keep themselves at. I would imagine any reduction in catabolism/increase in anabolism or nitrogen retention in either of these individuals would be evident.

    you can take 4 pre workout and 4 post workout





    you can also use gear to boost protein intake during times when you don't have very much protein available or with a meal to up the nutrition & muscle building content value of things.

    there are alot of reviews at the NTBM website and other various forums with an array of dosing schemes .

    So the 200 servings is actually 50 servings, and at 3-4 servings per day, as recommended, this lasts 12-16 days?



    Whats the cost per day?

    the real question here is how much of a difference this type of supplement can make to already on point diet and training routine and how much that is to you? we also have discounts at NTBM all the time,something I like personally is the free shipping plus a money back guarantee if your not happy with a product. our customer service is top notch so if your not happy with something they make sure to fix it.



    if you'd like to give this product a shot we have a free logging opt here.

    This definitely allows for the convenience of taking bovine serum much easier. My personal dosing is a little different I would always take them with meals to help get the amino content up and use a lot of bovine serums abilities to elevate anabolism. I can't say it works better than the normal dosing, but that definitely helps me for sure. Why just take so called amino caps that are normally just a soy protein powder when you could use this.

    its a great supplement for anyone on the go who can't always eat clean or one who wants to make the most of what they eat. I see GEAR being a great item to use for someone going into pct trying to hold onto gains.
