ICOGEN : Multi-phase protein complex

– Sustained release formula with 6 protein sources
– Maintenance and growth of muscle mass (protein)
– With added inuline and bromeline

I

cogen is an ultra-premium multi-phase protein blend. It combines a very precise ratio of six proteins : fast-digesting whey proteins (hydrolysate, isolate and concentrate), medium-digesting egg and milk proteins and slow-absorbing caseins (micellar casein and calcium caseinate), which provide a sustained amino acid release, for an ongoing support. These protein sources contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
Icogen also contains inulin, a soluble fiber belonging to prebiotics, and bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme.
Icogen helps to maintain a muscle building¹ environment for longer periods of time than any conventional protein powder, which results in maximum gains.

ABSORPTION RATE

Icogen brings multi-stage release proteins :
– Fast-digesting
– Medium-released
– Slow-absorbing
Each dose provides an ongoing amino acid support for up to 8 hours.

Whey protein hydrolysate
Whey protein isolate
Whey protein concentrate
Egg albumin
Milk protein isolate
Micellar casein*
Calcium caseinate

*Micellar casein comes from milk protein isolate (milk protein isolate is a source of whey protein and micellar casein).

The protein sources

Unlike many other protein complexes, Icogen combines only the purest sources.

Whey protein hydrolysate


It is the fastest digesting protein available. Whey protein hydrolysate delivers its amino acids into muscles very quickly. It is obtained through hydrolysis, a process during which protein molecules are broken down into smaller chains called peptides and polypeptides. This explains why whey protein hydrolysate is digested and absorbed almost instantly, for immediate support.

Whey protein isolate


It has a high biological value and provides a very large supply of essential and non-essential amino acids but hardly any carbs, sugars or lactose. It is obtained through an ultrafiltration process avoiding any denaturation of the protein structure. The isolate used in Icogen brings more than 90% protein. Easily digested, it is the second protein source that feeds muscles, just after the whey hydrolysate.

Whey protein concentrate


Whey protein concentrate is made up of rapidly absorbed short amino acid chains. It works together with whey protein hydrolysate and isolate for about 2 hours.

Egg albumin


Egg albumin (egg white) has an excellent amino acid profile, almost the same as whey protein concentrate. It is particularly high in L-Arginine. This medium-digested and easily assimilated protein source takes over fast absorbed proteins and offers an amino acid release for 3 to 4 hours. Our egg white protein is obtained through a process preserving all its key components.

Milk protein isolate


The milk protein isolate included in Icogen has a very high nutritional value. It is an excellent source of both whey and micellar casein, respectively 20% and 80%, just like milk. It contains very little fats and carbs, as most of them have been removed during the manufacturing process. Milk protein isolate is mostly a slow absorbing protein source since micellar casein ensures a 7 to 8 hour amino acid delivery. It is a great choice for lean mass gains because it helps to support anabolism while preventing catabolism (especially between meals and at night).

Calcium caseinate


Calcium caseinate is a very slow-digesting protein source with a high amino acid profile. Because it is absorbed at a slower rate than any other protein, it extends muscle growth for up to 8 hours. Calcium caseinate is also particularly rich in L-Glutamine while being poor in fats and carbs. The calcium caseinate used in Icogen is obtained through a filtration process preserving all its components and optimal purity.

Inulin and bromeline


Icogen also contains inulin, a soluble dietary fiber belonging to prebiotics, and bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme.

Icogen : an Icopro Series formula

With Icogen, the goal was to provide a powerful sustained release protein complex. To achieve maximum efficiency, our experts selected high quality protein sources and combined them at optimum ratios. Icogen is the best blend of proteins we could conceive.

When it comes to developing a multiphase protein complex, it is highly important to ensure a steady amino acid release. It is a key factor that is rarely taken into account by manufacturers, which often leads to imbalanced blends of proteins. For example including too much whey is not effective since most of it is absorbed within the first hours after taking it. On the other hand, formulas with too many slow-digesting proteins and not enough whey are not ideal either. In both cases, the amino acid supply is not linear. As a result, protein synthesis and muscle growth are impacted. That is why for Icogen our experts focused most of their attention on designing a unique formula with precise protein ratios providing a sustained amino acid release for up to 8 hours.

Mix 30 g in 250 ml of liquid (water, skimmed milk, vegetal milk). Adjust the quantity of liquid according to the desired consistency and taste.

Take 1 to 3 dose(s) a day : at breakfast, between meals, before exercising, after a training session, at bedtime. More generally, Icogen can be taken any time when a protein intake is needed. It is advised to spread the doses over the day.

Focus on muscle growth

When you want to gain muscle mass, nutrition is as important as training. Because the building phase takes place between workouts, and only if the right nutritional “materials” are available. All experts agree that protein is definitely the key aspect.

Some athletes rely exclusively on whey protein (isolate and concentrate) whereas others prefer casein or egg protein. In reality, each protein source has strengths and weaknesses. For example whey protein has a very high biological value and amino acid profile but is also so easily assimilated that it fuels muscles only for about 2 hours. If you want to get the best results, you have to maintain a sustained protein release.

Some experts highlighted that when you add medium-digesting proteins to whey, protein synthesis remains elevated for longer than when using whey alone. It has also been pointed out that when you further add slower digesting proteins, muscle growth is even more important. Combining multi-stage release proteins enables you to get the benefits of each of them, with a significant impact on your overall gains.

Unique flavors

Our team is working with the the most renowned flavor experts to develop mouthwatering tastes that the most demanding athletes will just love. Multiple tests are also systematically performed with real users. Icogen is both an effective and absolutely delicious high quality protein blend.
