ShipShape (Ark 4 Super Ark Food) Nutritional Shake Mix is a Meal Replacement that is unlike any other on the market today taking over 7 years to develop from concept to finished product. Designed for weight loss and healthy nutrition the ShipShape Shake is a complete healthy meal in a glass with an exclusive and balanced blend of protein and key nutrients. Containing 210 calories per meal of the highest quality nutrition and exclusive Ark blends it is arguably the healthiest and most affective Meal Replacement Shake that has ever been produced in the industry.
However, that is only half the story as the ShipShape Shake contains a source of protein that is completely unique and combined with the nutritional blend that makes up the meal replacement is totally exclusive to Arkworld International. This patent pending protein is called ProtaLyn® (Enzymatic Hybrid Protein) which has a higher efficiency rate than any other protein on the market. What does that mean and what exactly is ProtaLyn? Well, let’s take a look at the science behind the product and this ground breaking source of protein in more detail...
The word protein comes from the Greek word proteios. Proteins were first discovered and named by the Swedish chemist Jons Jakob Berzelius in 1838. Proteins are organic compounds made up of amino acids that are arranged into a linear chain and joined together by peptide bonds. These peptide bonds are formed between the carboxyl and amino groups of adjacent amino acid residues. The amino acid sequence of a protein is fully defined by the sequence of a gene. This gene is encoded in the genetic code which specifies 20 standard amino acids.
Many proteins are also enzymes that can catalyze biochemical reactions and are crucial to human metabolism. These proteins must first be broken down into free amino acids before this process can take place, which is why it is important that your protein source be digested and assimilated easily. The following eight amino acids are considered essential for humans. They are phenylalanine, valine, tryptophan, theonine, isoleucine, methionine, leucine and lysine. They are called essential not because they are more important but because our bodies cannot produce them, making it essential to obtain these eight from the diet.
In addition, the amino acids arginine, cysteine, glycine, glutamine, histidine, proline serine and tyrosine are considered conditionally essential, which means they are not normally required in the diet but must be supplied exogenously to specific populations that do not synthesize them in adequate amounts. The rest are called non-essential because our body can synthesize them.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration currently recommend that protein make up 10 percent of the total calories you consume each day. Since protein has 4 calories per gram, in a 2,000-calorie diet, that would allow for 50 grams of protein. Meanwhile, the U.S. national average consumption of protein is about 90 grams daily. However, athletes need more than the average human. Scientists have determined that an average athlete needs about 1 gram per pound of body weight. (2.2 grams per kg of body weight)
Due to the absorption rate of ProtaLyn®, less is more. No more formulating a protein, meal replacement or diet powder with 50 grams of protein. Your body can only utilize so much every three to four hours. Since ProtaLyn® is absorbed and digested very quickly; all you need is 15-24 grams per serving (pending your weight & type of sport), making this much more cost effective than typical Whey Isolate or Whey Concentrate. This gives ShipShape (Ark 4 Super Ark Food) not only the best value on the market but a scientific edge over everyone else in the industry.
This biologically active protein represents the next generation of high end protein powders. The Arkworld manufactures Dairy Division have spent many years in continued research to develop high quality, great tasting protein which is what has led to the development of ProtaLyn® and ShipShape.
In any process you must begin with the highest quality ingredients to end up with superior finished goods. You’ve heard this one many times before, but it is worth repeating again:
This simply means if you start with low quality raw material you will get a low quality finished product. USDA prime choice milking cattle are chosen for the milk source. Special care is taken with everything from their feed, to how they are handled.
No steroids are used on these cows, nor is any GMO food. (GMO stands for Genetically Engineered Organisms). Second, we take high quality, home grown grains that are organically grown without pesticides and are non GMO. These raw materials start the process. We hand raise cattle from birth, on a special high protein & vitamin diet. When the cattle have reached the right age for milking, they are milked under controlled USDA conditions. The milk is immediately loaded into temperature controlled stainless steel transfer trucks. Upon arrival at our State of the Art filtration & ionization plant, every step of the process is monitored for quality.
This brilliant study proved that whey peptides out performs regular whey protein, casein, soy, egg or milk. The categories of performance were higher nitrogen levels, improved anabolism, muscle size increases, & better over-all growth and protein synthesis. For over a decade now the Arkworld scientists have been aware of how to theoretically boost metabolic response to protein by molecularly altering the peptides structures. But, it was not until about 3 years ago that the break-through started to happen with our theory.
With our new Patent Pending process our scientists have been able to use what is commonly called ‘enzyme production’ to achieve the impossible. In this process, special enzymes are chemically used to cleave the long whey protein molecules into the New Hybrid Peptides.
During this first process, enzymes are added and the mix processes as the milk ripens. The dairy whey is then removed from the mix and transported to another holding tank. The following steps now take place:
The second step then requires this mix to sit, mature, and then chill for 24 hours before moving into filtration. Once the required peptide response is achieved, the liquid mix moves into ultra filtration, which removes the remaining fat etc, to a concentration of around 75% protein solids by dry measurements.
High heat and denaturing processing are the quickest and cheapest ways to dry protein. However, it should also be noted that extreme heat is the worst drying process for proteins because it ruptures (“denatures”) and reforms the natural protein bonds into cross-links. This slows down the digestion and absorption process because these cross-linked proteins have thousands more bonds for the enzymes in your intestines to break down. Because it takes longer for the amino acids to reach the muscles, it causes about a 65% less nitrogen retention.
Some proteins that are commonly processed with extreme heat are; egg whites, lactalbumin, casein, & whey protein. Our scientific processing techniques use "State of the Art" technology and equipment, allowing us to bypass this deadly heating process by using a cold high speed air chamber drying technique. In these large chambers, the ionic cold high speed air processing blows off all the excess water, leaving us with a finished powder called ProtaLyn®.
In order to explain why ProtaLyn® is the ultimate protein and why as a result ShipShape (Ark 4 Super Ark Food) is the ultimate Meal Replacement Nutritional Shake Mix ever made, it is first important to understand how proteins are rated. I am not talking about slick marketing ads that say they have the best protein or some ridiculous made up protein score, rather I am talking about real science and testing as outlined by the FDA (Food & Drug Association).
A). Biological Value (BV)
Measures the amount of nitrogen retained in comparison to the amount of nitrogen absorbed.
B). Net Protein Utilization (NPU)
The ratio of the nitrogen used for tissue formation versus the amount of nitrogen digested.
C). Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER)
Measures the ability of a protein to support growth by representing the ratio of weight gain to the amount of protein consumed.
D). Amino Acid Scores (AAS)
A chemical technique that measures the indispensable amino acids present in protein and compares the values with a reference protein. The protein is rated based upon the most limiting indispensable amino acid.
E). Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS)
The amino acid score with an added digestibility component.
F). Protein Digestibility (PD)
A test to measure how well protein is digested.
|Soy Protein Concentrate||1.00||0.99||2.2||4.0||95.0|
On average, the ShipShape protein - ProtaLyn® outperformed all other proteins sources. These tests show that you can use less ShipShape ProtaLyn® than whey protein concentrate, casein, soy protein, beef or eggs, because ShipShape ProtaLyn® is absorbed and digested very effectively. Smaller amounts are all that is needed, making this the perfect protein choice above all other proteins on the market.
This product is best used in conjunction with the ShipShape Fat Antagonizer capsule (Ark 5 – Inferno) as part of the ShipShape Weight Control Product Range.
