Yamamoto Nutrition AlphaTECH - Food supplement of hydrolysed salmon proteins (ProGo) Made up of marine protein sources (Atlantic salmon) isolated by enzymatic means through a patented production process to give a product made up of exclusively natural amino acids, peptides and micronutrients . Yamamoto AlphaTECH proteins are produced and assembled in Italy in the best factories that can guarantee compliance and safety according to the highest quality standards. The development of AlphaTECH is the result of close collaboration between the Italian company Yamamoto® and the Norwegian company Hofseth BioCare®. ProGo (hydrolysed salmon protein) exclusively for Yamamoto® has allowed us to produce a product with unique and unrepeatable characteristics IN ITALY IN THE BEST PHARMACEUTICAL FACTORIES.
What makes AlphaTECH different from all the other proteins on the market? 1 – Increased nitrogen retention. AlphaTECH proteins have been shown to have 79% greater nitrogen retention than whey protein isolate and 20% greater than hydrolyzed whey protein. The better the quality of the biological value and nitrogen retention of a protein source, the greater the response in terms of protein synthesis. 2 – Greater digestibility and absorption. AlphaTECH is a protein hydrolyzate made up of oligopeptides and amino acids in free form, with a balanced amino acid composition and particularly similar to human tissues. In particular, it contains about 627 peptides (MALDI-TOF analysis) which are made up of various classes of small oligopeptides and amino acids in free form. The hydrolysed mixture of AlphaTECH® thus results in a "predigested" form, and is divided into 5 fractions of peptide classes based on their weight and molecular size and high bioactive power with extraordinary biological properties: 110-1000 Dalton, 1000- 1500 Daltons, 1500-2000 Daltons, 2000-2500 Daltons > 2500 Daltons. Thus 100% of all hydrolyzate is found to be of a molecular weight of less than 3000 Daltons with +50% being characterized by oligopeptides. Keep in mind that whey proteins generally have 70% or more of proteins with a molecular weight of over 10,000 Daltons. This will particularly affect the speed of digestibility and absorption. In fact the di and tripeptides cross the apical membrane by means of the pepT1 transporter, H+ dependent (cotransport) making themselves even faster thanks to this "preferential" lane. "One of the best solutions in the world with the highest bioavailability and the fastest absorption" From the continuous analysis and research of raw materials confirmed by the real scientific value, the protein hydrolyzate of salmon is currently the most interesting and innovative choice to offer to a market in continuous evolution and diffusion. The word "innovative" refers to the fact that we would be "innovators" in the relaunch of this special raw material on the food supplement market, previously relegated to the world of nutraceutical research on astronauts.
Protein hydrolyzate came to prominence as a "super food" for Soviet cosmonauts to support their particular needs, due to the rapid protein catabolic decay that occurs in zero gravity and the rapidity of gastrointestinal passage, for which a nutritional element was needed with a high biological value, absolutely quick to digest and absorb for those in such extreme conditions. Left aside in favor of more well-known and noble raw materials of much more common use, conception and method of extraction, it was decided to re-propose the ALPHATECH® salmon hydrolyzate to the nutraceutical and sports market, obtained from the natural hydrolysis of salmon meat itself to then be processed and isolated by the Norwegian biomarine company Hofseth Biocare. ALPHATECH® is a protein hydrolyzate made up of oligopeptides and amino acids in free form, with a balanced amino acid composition and particularly similar to human tissues. In particular, it contains about 627 peptides (MALDI-TOF analysis) which are made up of various classes of small oligopeptides and amino acids in free form. We keep in mind that whey proteins, in principle, have a 70% or more protein with a molecular weight of over 10,000 Daltons. This will particularly affect the speed of digestibility and absorption. The hydrolysed mixture of ALPHATECH is thus in a "predigested" form,and is divided into 5 fractions of peptide classes according to their molecular weight and size and high bioactive power with extraordinary biological properties: 110-1000 Dalton, 1000-1500 Dalton, 1500-2000 Dalton, 2000-2500 Dalton and > 2500 Daltons.
So 100% of all the hydrolyzate turns out to be of a molecular weight lower than 3000 Dalton with +50% which are characterized by oligopeptides with a molecular weight. These data are truly more interesting values for the athlete who carries out a intense sporting activity because it bypasses the digestive problem of having to subtract energy and blood from muscle work during performance and after this in which the digestive process is compromised by particular "emergency" biochemical situations given by acute effort and all amino acids fail fully absorbed. So these peptides and essential amino acids in free form with very high bioavailability we can have them rapidly present in the circulatory stream as building blocks ready for the protection and reconstruction of damaged muscles thanks to their being already "predigested" and to exploit "alternative" carriers absorption accesses ( the already extremely rapid absorption of amino acids occurs across the apical membrane of the cells of the intestinal epithelium mainly through transporters that co-transport it together with Na+ (secondary active transport), but the di and tripeptides cross the apical membrane via the pepT1 transporter, H+ dependent (co-transport) making themselves even faster thanks to this "preferential" lane which is not susceptible to competitiveness).
But the greatest feature that makes this hydrolysate so extraordinary is how it has been demonstrated, how it has surpassed in an exceptional way in terms of nitrogen retention, the isolated milk proteins of 79% and even hydrolysates of 20% whey. Results demonstrating a unique bioavailable capacity demonstrated in healthy human adults*. The better the quality of the biological value and nitrogen retention of a protein source, the greater the response in terms of protein synthesis, and the extraordinary feeling in fact is that anyone who uses this type of hydrolyzate in a targeted way, "feels" it on in a few minutes as well as obviously in terms of maximizing muscle recovery.
This is the revolution of ALPHATECH in the panorama of protein supplements, which from being a "super food" created to be destined for Soviet cosmonauts with extraordinary absorption and bioactive characteristics (extendable to the medical world with great potential), today arises for the athlete as the unique protein supplement of its kind, with extraordinary qualities in terms of rapid absorption, but above all presenting itself as the most bioavailable mixture of peptides and amino acids in free form ever and with the highest nitrogen retention capacity, a concrete and complete support to prevent and contrast muscle catabolism before, during but also after training or performance, "critical" moments not only from a performance point of view but also at a digestive level, where in this case the highest concentration of amino acid substrates for lean mass accumulation and repair of exercise-induced muscle damage.
