Net Nitrogen Utilization
Did you know that your body doesn't use all of the Protein you take in? The amount your body utilizes is referred to as Net Nitrogen Utilization. Every protein source has an "Amino Acid Profile" which has a percentage of Net Nitrogen Utilization.
The point is, It is not relevant how many grams of protein you are getting from your protein sources, but how much of that protein will you body actually use?
Let's look at the numbers:
When you eat a 45 gram serving of Chicken, the NNU is only 17%. That means your body will only be able to use 7.65 Grams.
When you take in 17 grams of Whey Protein, the NNU is ONLY 12%. Your body will only use 2.04 Grams.
Next time you buy protein foods or supplements, the question you should be asking is - "What is the Net Nitrogen utilization of this protein?"
These is a new protein supplement called "Nitrobol" that offers a stagerring 99% Net Nitrogen Utilization. This means that 99 grams out of 100 can be fully used by your body.
Nitrobol is pre-digested and fully absorbed in less than 23 minutes. This means the muscle-building aminos get to your muscle cells fast to induce and support muscle hypertrophy (growth). Dietary protein takes 3 to 4 hours to be digested.
Nitrobol is also sodium free, sugar free, and fat free, so it is perfect for those who wish to add lean muscle mass or even to build muscle and lose fat at the same time.

We all know that building muscle is completely impossible without protein and all protein comes with an added nitrogen molecule so any measurement of how much nitrogen is passed in your urine will tell you whether you have a positive or a negative nitrogen balance.
All protein is made from amino acids of which there are essential amino acids, which your body cannot produce, and there are non-essential amino acids, which are produced by the liver. The measurement of the amount of nitrogen lost in the urine is the easiest way to establish whether you are in a positive or a negative nitrogen balance.
Over 90% of any nitrogen consumed gets excreted through the kidneys so by simply measuring the amount of this nitrogen excreted we can know whether it is positive or negative. With the protein in the body being the largest portion next to water at around 15% to 20% of our bodyweight over 70% of all muscles in our bodies are voluntary muscles used when we exercise.
The 9 essential amino acids, which cannot be constructed within the body and are essential amino acids required in any good and biologically correct bodybuilding nutrition are Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Valine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine and Tryptophan.
The non-essential amino acids that can be created within the liver and sent out into the blood-stream to help with protein synthesis required for building muscle are: Alanine, Arginine, Asparagine, Aspartic Acid, Cysteine, Glutamic acid, Glutamine, Glycine, Proline, Serine and Tyrosine.
A positive nitrogen balance is when you are getting in more protein or amino acids that you are excreting. A negative nitrogen balance means you will be losing muscle as the muscle damage done by hard training cannot be repaired and you will lose both size and strength very quickly.
