Maxs Anabolic Night is a high quality slow release protein designed to stoke your muscle building fires as you sleep. The hours you sleep and rest is often considered when you’re doing the most growing. During this period, your muscles are recovering from the intense workouts you’ve put it through as well as utilising all the nutrients and protein you’ve had throughout the day to build new, stronger and more resilient muscle mass. To help you maximise the effectiveness of these processes, you need a supplement that will supply those muscles with a constant supply of protein and amino acids. Anabolic Night is made with premium micellar casein along with calcium caseinate and whey protein concentrate to provide up to 8 hours worth of muscle building potential.
On top of that, Anabolic Night contains added skullcap and chamomile; two popular ingredients to help get you relaxed and calm the central nervous system in anticipation of a deeper, more restful sleep. This helps you make the most out of your time in bed and also ensures natural high peaks in growth hormone release for even better recovery.
Build More Muscle While You Sleep
During sleep your nerves, muscles, bones, and immune system all recover from the stresses of daily life and undergo repair, restoration and growth (in a process called anabolism - the metabolic activities that build new cells). This restoration process occurs at specific times during your sleep cycle. When you sleep you go through 5 sleep stages:
Stage 1: The lightest stage occurs as you start falling asleep and lasts about 5 – 10 minutes.
Stage 2: Still light sleep lasting about 30 minutes but transitions you towards a deeper sleep.
Stages 3 – 4: During these stages you move into deep sleep or slow wave sleep lasting between 10 and 30 minutes where brain activity decreases and your body begins restoring itself mentally and physically.
Stage 5: REM or Rapid Eye Movement Sleep, where you brain becomes more active and you dream. REM sleep can last from 5 minutes anywhere up to an hour and your body and mind continue to replenish their reserves through this stage.
During a night’s sleep your body will cycle through stages 3, 4 and 5 several times, and it is these stages where you are properly rested and most muscle growth occurs. The quality of sleep during these stages has a direct impact on the amount of muscle you will build. More good quality stage 3, 4 and 5 sleep means greater muscle gains, but only if you have a ready supply of protein in your system.
- Can I use Anabolic Night as my post-workout shake?
Although Anabolic NIght definitely contains enough protein to be an efficient post-workout shake - it is highly recommended to only use this protein as a night-time protein, as it contains Skullcap and Chamomile - both used to relax the body. It also is a slow digesting protein, optimal to digest while you sleep.
- How is Anabolic Night different from Max's other protein powders?
Anabolic Night is a slow-releasing casein, meaning it is best used at night before sleep. On top of that, it contains relaxing ingredients such as chamomile to make it the perfect night time liquid snack.
- Can I use this during the day?
It is not recommended to use this product during the day as it releases and digests slowly, as well as the specific ingredients to help relax and unwind at night. You are best off using another protein powder for the day such as Max's Pure Whey.
- How much protein does Anabolic Night contain?
Per 30g scoop there are more than 24g of protein.
- Does Anabolic NIght contain wheat?
This product does not contain any wheat.
- Is Anabolic NIght good for vegetarians?
Anabolic Night contains whey proteins which are a form of dairy & as such are an animal bi-product. Thus Max's Anabolic Night is NOT suitable for Vegetarians.
- Would Max's Anabolic Night be good for somebody trying to lose weight/shred?
Having a slow digesting protein like casein in your system to digest overnight could reduce hunger/food cravings the next morning, eventually resulting in reduced calorie intake which could possibly lead to losing body fat.
