AP PRIMEBITES® protein brownies allow you to enjoy the pleasure of a sweet treat without consuming loads of sugar. All four flavors are made with a combination of natural and artificial ingredients, with a minimal amount of fat and sugar. Compared to the typical brownie, these snacks contain about 75% less sugar.
The brownies are also gluten-free and contain no wheat protein. If you are allergic to nuts, be aware that the brownies are produced in a facility that processes peanuts and tree nuts.
Here is a closer look at the primary ingredients packed in each AP PRIMEBITES® protein brownie.
Whey Protein (16 to 17 grams)
The brownies contain a combination of whey protein concentrate (WPC) and whey protein isolate (WPI). Whey protein is the preferred choice for bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts. Unlike wheat protein, whey protein is gluten-free and a complete source of protein.
Whey protein is created from milk and contains all the essential amino acids, including the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs):
Consuming high-quality protein is essential for building muscle. WPC and WPI are rich in amino acids, especially leucine.
Leucine is responsible for activating pathways that stimulate muscle protein synthesis, which is how you build muscle. Leucine and the other two BCAAs also help reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and improve muscle repair, allowing you to recover more quickly.
Along with building muscle, the amino acids found in whey protein support a healthier body. Whey protein is known to help moderate blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure, and promote better heart health.
Including whey protein in your diet may also combat inflammation. Chronic inflammation can lead to muscle loss and weakness, making it more difficult to reach your fitness goals.
Whether you want to bulk up or gain lean muscle, you need protein. While there are many good sources of BCAAs and protein, the whey protein found in these brownies ensures you get a complete amino acid profile. The AP PRIMEBITES® protein brownies allow you to easily increase your protein intake as part of a healthy meal plan and workout regime.
Collagen Hydrolysate (5 grams)
Along with whey protein, the protein blend includes five grams of collagen hydrolysate. Hydrolyzed collagen is collagen that is broken down into easily digestible amino acids.
Collagen is an important part of strengthening your joints and preventing osteoarthritis. It may also help prevent bone loss and protect your skin. However, collagen is also useful for muscle development. It may aid lean muscle mass building by promoting protein synthesis and the production of creatine.
Between 1% and 10% of your muscle tissue is composed of collagen. You need this protein to keep your muscles healthy and strong.
AP PRIMEBITES® protein brownies give you a combination of high-quality whey protein and collagen to promote better lean muscle growth and shorten your recovery time between workouts. Eat one or more brownies per day to supplement a healthy, balanced diet.
