What You Should Know
Protein is a huge part of bodybuilding. In order to consume enough protein to build muscle on an extraordinary level, bodybuilders would have to eat meat constantly. Instead of carrying around a steak in each hand, protein shakes are commonly used. Dorian Yates, six-time Mr. Olympia, has formulated a protein shake mix, Dorian Yates Tempro that does not appear to be much different from the rest of the protein products on the market.
List of Ingredients
TEMPRO Cold Temperature Processed & Diversified Protein Blend (Micellar casein, Instant Whey Protein Isolate, Instant Whey Protein Concentrate, Egg Albumin, Glutamine Peptides, Whey Protein Hydrolysate, Microparticulate Whey Protein Concentrate), Natural and Artificial Flavors, Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium.
The Cold Temperature Processed 7 Diversified Protein Blend includes several sources of whey. Some bodybuilders will debate that one type of whey protein is more effective than another, but there is no real evidence different varieties of whey work in different ways. Whey protein is easy to digest and is generally absorbed well.
Egg Albumin is another source of protein in Dorian Yates Tempro. Egg whites, both powdered and liquid, are commonly used to boost protein intake in bodybuilding. Egg is easy for the body to digest so it is a great addition to Dorian Yates Tempro.
Glutamine peptides are peptide bonded amino acids. Unlike L-glutamine that is a free amino acid, glutamine peptides are stable and easy for the body to use. It is thought that glutamines have an anabolic effect, but this is not proven. There could also be other benefits from the antioxidant properties.
Sucralose is a calorie free sweetener. This is actually one of the most important ingredients in Dorian Yates Tempro. Too many protein shakes are laden with extra calories which mean the bodybuilder is consuming calories that may turn to fat and later need to be shed during the cutting phase. Most of the calories in Dorian Yates Tempro are all protein.
Dorian Yates Tempro sells for $54.99 per container and is available in four flavors. There is no mention on the official website about how well the flavors are tolerated or if the protein mix is hard to dissolve in liquids.
- Detailed ingredient list published for Dorian Yates Tempro.
- Protein is essential for bodybuilding.
- Egg albumin is easy to digest.
- Glutamine peptides are better than L-glutamine.
- Not every dieter will need protein supplementation.
Dorian Yates Tempro is not a protein supplement that stands out in the crowd. It is basically a combination of whey and egg proteins with some glutamine thrown in for good measure. The price is higher than competitor supplements which could drive bodybuilders away and into a canister that is cheaper and contains the same ingredients.
