Crossfire by Horleys uses Crossflow Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate WPI, Ultrafiltered Whey Protein Concentrate WPC, and Calcium Caseinate as its protein sources.
By using these three protein sources, the Crossfire protein blend provides you with a sustained protein release as well as a broad spectrum of amino acids at the same time.
This ratio of proteins is also called TNR or Triple Nitrogen Ratio, Crossfire includes high Glycomacropeptide, immunoglobulin, and Lactoferrin containing whey protein that does more than stimulate GH release, and it also helps greatly with muscle synthesis.
