Benefits and Uses of Protein:

Protein powder is a popular macronutrient supplement used by people all over the world. It is used to help build and repair muscles. Below are more details on their benefits:

Muscle Growth: Protein is essential for building muscles. It is often used by athletes and gym enthusiasts to help in muscle growth. Research has shown that the consumption of protein when paired with resistance or weight training helps to increase muscle size. 

Recovery: Not only does it aid in muscle growth, but it also helps in the recovery of muscle soreness after exercise.


Different Types of  protein:

Whey: This is one of the most popular types of protein supplements on the market. It is a soluble milk-based protein that offers quick and efficient absorption of protein. 

Casein: This is also a milk-based protein that is rich in glutamine which aids in speedy muscle recovery. It differs from whey by having a slower absorption rate. 

Pea: Is a popular plant-based protein supplement. It's made from isolated ground yellow peas, allowing it to be more easily digested than other plant-based proteins.  

Hemp: Is a great alternative for people with dairy or soy allergies. It is often the go-to choice for those who like less processed protein.

Creatine Monohydrate

What is it?

Creatine is a widely studied and used supplement to help increase muscle mass, strength as well as performance. There are also numerous other benefits to taking creatine. 

Creatine is a naturally-forming substance found within muscle cells and aids in providing energy during exercise such as heavy lifting. Although it is a naturally forming substance, its production is affected by one’s consumption of meat, the amount of exercise they do as well as their testosterone levels. However, only a small amount of creatine is created naturally. By taking supplements consumers are able to increase their phosphocreatine levels (this is the creatine that is stored in the muscles). With increased phosphocreatine levels your boost is able to produce more energy allowing you to perform better when exercising.

Because of creatine’s effectiveness in increasing performance, it is often used by weightlifters to aid in muscle growth. However, it has numerous other benefits:

  • Reduction in protein breakdown: Allowing muscle mass to be increased by decreasing muscle breakdown 
  • Increased Cell Hydration: It increases water concentration within muscle cells which play a role in increased muscle growth
  • Boosted levels of endurance/performance: This allows you to increase the total amount/volume of weight lifted during a training session


Why bring your own creatine product to market?

  • The global creatine market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6.5% over the next five years
  • With a global market of $360 Million USD in 2019 it is expected to reach $520 Million USD by 2024

L-Glutamine

What is it?

L-Glutamine, also referred to as glutamine, is an amino acid. Often found in protein-rich foods from both plants and animals. Although this is a naturally occurring substance within your body, there are situations where your body may not be producing enough, thus it can be consumed through our diet. 

The importance of L-Glutamine:

Glutamine is not often used to increase muscle mass or strength as research has suggested there is little to no effect. Research has shown that it does have a positive effect on recovery time and muscle soreness after intense exercise.

Glutamine also plays an important role in our immune system, it’s considered a source of energy for white blood cells and intestinal cells, which help to fight infections and other diseases. High glutamine diets and supplements are often prescribed to those that have suffered major injuries as it aids in a quicker recovery. If there is a lack of glutamine the body may break down protein stores, such as muscles to create more amino acids (one of them being glutamine). 

Why bring your own L-Glutamine product to market?

  • With a global market valued at $24.15 Billion USD in 2020, the amino acid business is a very lucrative industry 
  • Furthermore, the industry is predicted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.8% from 2020 to 2027 
  • CSN Pharma is well-positioned and experienced to help guarantee that you get the best version of your product and vision to market with our in house experts and our global supply chain partners

Why bring your own electrolyte product to market?

  • There are many outlets in which you can distribute your electrolyte drinks - Super/hypermarkets, convenience stores, pharmacies, vending machines, as well as online retail
