Best Protein Powder For Muscle Gain In 2021: Mdrive Start

June 15, 2020

What is Protein Powder? Why Should I Take Protein Powder?

To make the most out of your everyday workouts try protein powder. Why? Because protein is essential to building and repairing your body’s cells. Not to mention, it is also integral to your immunity and hormone production. We work out to build muscle, control weight and feel more energy. What are the benefits of whey protein? Well, protein is essential for muscle growth, helps with weight management, and can also help speed up recovery from intense workouts. It does this by improving muscle protein synthesis. Muscle protein synthesis is a naturally occurring process in which protein is produced to repair muscle damage caused by intense exercise. That is why you need the best protein powder for lean muscle. 

Protein Powder For Workout

After a workout, getting protein into your body can help muscle recovery - especially a protein powder that is easy to digest and reaches the muscles quickly. Even if you don’t work out, your body needs protein to build and repair tissues, make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Let’s not forget our bones, muscles, skin, blood, immune system, etc. Yep, protein is an important building block for that, too.

Protein Powder for Older Men

Now let’s talk about the older men out there. Research shows that older adults need more protein in their diet to help preserve muscle mass and older adults are less likely to lose their functioning abilities if they consume more protein. You lose muscle mass as you age. By 75-80 years old, on average, only 25% of one’s body is muscle. Aging bodies process protein less efficiently and need more of it to maintain muscle mass and strength. Obviously, a diet rich in protein is required, but taking a good quality protein powder helps assure that you get that additional protein your body needs.

Our Newest Member to the Mdrive Healthy Products Family

Let me introduce you to Mdrive Start, Dreambrands’ newest addition to their awesome men’s health supplement line, and the best protein powder of 2020. 

mdrive start best proteins of 2020

Mdrive Start is a great-tasting cocoa-flavored protein powder supplement that not only contains 6 sources of protein (22 G total protein) but also contains vitamins, adaptogens, nitric oxide, lean muscle, and energy boosting ingredients, and digestive enzymes. This is one powerful protein powder and the best protein powder for muscle recovery!

What is Whey Protein Isolate in Mdrive Start?

Beginning with our premier protein, Mdrive Start contains a unique whey protein isolate that is extracted from milk using a cold filtration method. The milk is collected from dairy farms that use high-quality farming practices and never uses artificial growth hormones. Okay, why is this so important? Well, this filtration method preserves the whole protein (95% pure protein) while reducing other residues that may be found in proteins made from a harsh processing method. Also, our native whey protein contains up to 17% more leucine. Leucine is an essential amino acid which is the most abundant of the BCAAs or branched chain amino acids in muscles. BCAAs are three amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) essential to muscle growth. Increasing blood levels of leucine is key to building muscle.

As far as clinical studies on this unique whey isolate, there are several showing its efficient digestibility and absorption, its ability to increase muscle power and reduce muscle fatigue, and several studies in older men showing increased muscle protein synthesis and recovery.

Most research shows that whey protein is the preferred form of protein, especially for body-builders.  It is a complete, high-quality protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. Whey protein is also a fast-digesting protein.

What is plant protein in Mdrive Start?

Not to rely on only protein source, we’ve added a blend of 4 different vegetable proteins (fava protein, pea protein, rice protein, and mung bean protein). Vegetable proteins have a slower digestibility and absorption profile for a more sustained protein release. The mix of the 4 vegetable sources makes a complete protein.

What is collagen protein in Mdrive Start?

The last protein source in Mdrive Start is hydrolyzed collagen. This collagen contains type I and type III collagen. The protein in collagen is broken down into smaller peptides for easier absorption. There are studies showing that other than the muscle building claims, collagen also helps with improvements in skin elasticity and appearance. Hey, who doesn’t want to look good?

Mdrive Start Protein Powder Also Contains Vitamins and Herbs

Mdrive Start is a protein blend that has a multi-vitamin blend of C, Niacin, Biotin, Pantothenic acid, B6, B12, E, to help supplement your daily nutrition. In addition to the awesome 6 proteins and 7 vitamins in Mdrive Start there are two energy ingredients and a powerful adaptogen.

mdrive Protein Powder Blend Of 2020 For Muscle

We’ve written several blogs previously about adaptogens (herbal ingredients that help the body effectively deal with stress) and especially KSM-66 ashwagandha. KSM-66 has numerous clinical studies showing its ability to help the body manage stress, to support healthy testosterone and cortisol levels, and benefit cognitive function.  It also has studies showing its effects on cardiorespiratory endurance, muscle strength, and recovery.

The two energy ingredients are zumXR and EnXtra. zumXR is an extended-release caffeine and EnXtra is a plant extract shown to improve mental alertness, and together with caffeine provides a more sustained energy profile.

And if that wasn’t enough, Mdrive Start also contains a mix of seven plant-based extracts called S7, which have been shown in a clinical study to increase circulating nitric oxide in the body by over 200%, as well as Chromax, which has clinical studies showing that it supports body fat reduction while preserving lean body mass with diet and exercise.

Last but not least, MDrive Start has a blend of digestive enzymes to help with proper food digestion and absorption.

Mdrive Start: Protein Powder with Vitamins

If you are convinced to try a really nutritious protein powder, I hope it’s Mdrive Start. As the name says, Mdrive Start would be a great way to “start” your day or your workout. There are 20 servings in a bag. Just mix one scoop with your favorite beverage – milk, coconut, almond, water, coffee, smoothie, whatever. Mix it up and enjoy something that tastes great and is good for you.
