Health Information

Amino Acids are the building blocks from which proteins are made. The body continuously breaks down the proteins eaten into amino acids, which it then recombines to form whatever proteins it needs to maintain itself. Amino acids supply the raw materials for maintaining the genetic code (DNA), repairing damaged muscle tissue, for cell division, making enzymes, building new connective tissue and making hormones and neurotransmitters. Eight of the amino acids have traditionally been regarded as "essential" because the body is unable to manufacture them for itself, and they therefore have to be taken in through the food we eat. In today's diets, research has found more and more of us are consuming far to much carbohydrate and to little protein. Too many calories consumed from carbohydrate sources causes hormonal fluctuations, which can contribute to conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, lack of energy, fat gain, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Secondly, for a healthier and longer disease free life, we now know that maintaining a "positive" or active muscle mass is essential. Muscle Mass is considered by experts, as our #1 biological marker for aging. To maintain an active muscle mass and to stay anabolic (building of healthy cells) we need to consume more calories from low fat protein sources and less from starch based carbohydrates. This product has been formulated with the 50 plus age group in mind, but would be ideal for anyone wanting to not only increase their daily protein intake, but to also support their skeletal system, by taking added calcium and glucosamine. Each serve provides 14.56 grams of protein, 9.34 grams of carbohydrate & 0.34 grams of fat.
