A lot of people find that to eat the required amount of protein for them each day is quite difficult, especially those who do not eat a lot of meat. Because of this, we stock this excellent New Zealand range of protein powders including both whey and soy powders for different needs. In this product, each 3 rounded dessertspoons provides around 18 grams of actual protein & around 3.6 grams of carbohydrate! It mixes well with water or milk, in the blender, to make a smooth delicious drink that will give most people 1/3 of their daily protein needs. Try blending with frozen berries. Yummy. This comes in a plain zip lock foil packet.
Mix 3 rounded dessert spoons in 400ml of water or selected beverage, shake or blend. Add ice to the blender for an iced shake.
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 too much carbohydrate and too 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. Using a high quality protein powder such as this helps to make this easier. Whey Lite also contains the addition of L-Carnitine and Chromium Picolinate. The Carnitine may assist with increased fat metabolism, whilst the Chromium will assist to balance blood sugar levels, and thus glucose metabolism as well as insulin response.
