Each serving of this High Protein Shake provides
20 grams of high quality protein, just one-half
to one gram of fat, and one to two grams of carbohydrates
(one gram in the vanilla, and two in the chocolate).
Combined with arginine-health-benefits
and the Cellular Nutrition Supplement, it also
provides 100% or more of the DV of all the essential
vitamins and minerals that may be missing in one's
diet during weight management programs. The Cellular
Nutrition Supplement provides a wide spectrum
of health supporting compounds, matched to the
needs of your sex and age group.
Protein Is Important
Other than water, protein is the largest element contained
in the human body. Water makes up about 65 percent of
our form and proteins follow at about 28 percent. All
cells in your bones, muscles, hair, skin, nails, brain,
heart and other organs contain proteins. The enzymes
that your body produces to facilitate metabolic processes
are made of protein. Proteins, called immunoglobulins,
are an important component of your immune defense system
and are needed to support a healthy immune system.
The human body maintains itself with the amino
acids from protein; therefore, it is important to consume
adequate amounts on a daily basis. Unfortunately as
with so many people fighting the "battle of the bulge"
and losing weight through calorie restriction a significant
portion of the pounds shed are from lean body mass,
which is primarily protein. In order to support your
overall health during weight loss, the health of your
organs, and metabolic processes, you must consume adequate
amounts of protein.
Proteins are made up of over 20 different amino acids,
all of which are important to metabolism. Eight of these
have been classified essential, meaning that they cannot
be made in the body and must be supplied in the diet.
Ten other amino acids can be produced within the body
and are important, but not classified as essential.
The remaining amino acids are conditionally essential,
meaning that under certain conditions, metabolic performance
is better if they are provided by the diet.
Essential Fats, Deadly fats
Just as proteins contain amino acids, fats contain
fatty acids. Several fatty acids have been classified
essential, especially linoleic acid and omega-3s (at
least for optimum health). In recent years, dietary
fat has been generally targeted as the enemy, but it
is necessary for many biological functions.
The brain and other organs require large amounts of
the best quality essential fats, including cholesterol,
DHA, EPA (long chain omega-3 fatty acids,), and phospholipids
such as phosphatidyl choline and phosphatidyl serine.
Each of these fats has a specific function in maintaining
the shape, fluidity, structure and function of the cell
membranes of the trillions of cells in your body.
Most of your body's hormones are also made from dietary
fats, the rest are made from proteins. Severe dietary
restrictions of fats often coincide with the restriction
of high quality proteins, as well. Undesirable fats
include oxidized fats (deriving mainly from foods fried
in oils at high temperatures) and Trans-fatty acids
(deriving mainly from chemiclaly altered oils). This
Triple Protein Shake provides minimal amounts of high
quality fats, and no oxidized or trans-fats.
Carbohydrates, as opposed to proteins and the right
fats, are not essential in the human diet. They are
useful as a fuel source, but must be carefully matched
to your type of metabolism and activity level. More
importantly, fiber is classified as a carbohydrate,
but is not utilized as fuel. Fiber is necessary for
the digestive tract and is important in many ways, but
cannot be digested or used for energy.
Many of the natural foods rich in carbohydrates contain
fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, but most
of them are lost or drastically reduced by refining
and processing. This High Protein Shake contains high-quality
protein from whey, milk protein isolate and soy, with
little carbohydrate or fat, and a representative amount
of essential vitamins and minerals to help provide these
crucial nutrients, especially important to those limiting
their caloric intake.
Carbohydrate Sensitivity Plays A Role In Abdominal
In order to help maintain a healthy weight, people
who are carbohydrate sensitive should avoid diets high
in carbohydrates. According to estimates, over half
of overweight people are carbohydrate sensitive. By
excluding foods made with white flour and white sugar,
they are more likely to reduce abdominal fat, maintain
already healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels,
as well as retain already healthy blood pressure and
fluid balance. For women, the circumference of the waist
being over 80 percent of the circumference at the widest
part of the hips, and for men the waist being as large
or larger than the hips, as in a "beer belly," are strong
indications that they are carbohydrate sensitive and
have been consuming diets too high in carbohydrates
for their type of metabolism and level of physical activity
for a longtime.
Higher Protein Diets Make Sense
Higher protein, lower-carbohydrate weight management
programs make sense for many people. The Lifestyle Management
Program can help you find out what levels of protein,
carbohydrates and fat are right for your body type,
age and activity level. Supplementing with the high
quality milk, whey and soya derived proteins in this
high Protein Shake, which carries a GMO-free Certification
for its soy protein, enriches your diet with protein
of high biological value and complements balanced carbohydrate
Loss Of Essential Nutrients May Be Harmful
Diets that are low in total calories may not contain
adequate amounts of various vitamins and minerals. This
High Protein Shake provides the essential vitamins A,
B-complex, C, D and E, as well as the essential minerals
copper, zinc, iodine, manganese, selenium, magnesium,
calcium, molybdenum and chromium. Maintaining or replenishing
healthy levels of chromium, along with daily replenishment
of B vitamins can help to decrease cravings for sweets
and generally improve the ability to think clearly and
handle stress more effectively.
Nearly everyone is aware of the need for adequate dietary
intake of essential nutrients from calcium, magnesium
and vitamin D for healthy nerves and bones, and vitamins
A, C, E and selenium for antioxidant protection. Selenium
and iodine are necessary for healthy thyroid function,
molybdenum is an essential trace element necessary for
proper metabolism of iron and sulfur compounds, and
copper, zinc and manganese activate crucial antioxidant
enzyme systems, among their many other functions. The
high Protein Shake is also a good source of potassium
(contains more per serving than 8 ounces of orange juice)
and contains only160 mg of sodium per serving.
The Cellular Nutrition Supplements (Bronze, Silver
and Gold formulas for men and women) complement and
extend the nutrient spectrum provided by the Protein
Shakes, to provide an optimum blend of nutrient intake
for healthy weight management, and to be used as part
of a total program of proper diet and exercise the Solutions
Lifestyle Management System.
Calcium, Magnesium, Health and Weight Management
Minerals sometimes function as paired duos with a
yin/yang relationship, as in the case of calcium/magnesium.
Too much of one leads to too little of the other. For
example, because calcium has been so emphasized by the
dairy, food and supplement industries as crucial to
bone health, without emphasizing the importance of magnesium,
an already magnesium deficient population has become
even more so.
Besides its role as a building block in bone, magnesium
is essential to the function of more than 300 enzyme
systems within the body, including those that produce
ATP, the energy "currency" that the entire body runs
on. Two Triple Protein Shakes a day provide 100% of
the DV for magnesium (400 mg) as magnesium glycinate
one of the most soluble and bioavailable forms of magnesium,
and over 1200 mg of a unique form of calcium calcium
extracted and purified from milk (dairy calcium), which
also provides magnesium and many trace minerals.
Dairy Calcium and Weight Management
Together, results from animal studies, analysis of
epidemiological data, observational data, and clinical
trials are beginning to establish a relationship between
calcium intake and weight management both in terms of
weight and fat loss and as well as preventing weight
gain, although more research is needed. Mechanisms have
been identified by which dietary calcium, particularly
derived from dairy products, affects fat storage and
therefore body fat and weight.
Higher-calcium diets inhibit fat storage and promote
breakdown of fat stores, fat burning, and thermogenesis.
Dairy sources of calcium inhibit weight and fat gain
and accelerate fat loss more so than do other supplemental
sources of calcium. This augmented effect of dairy products
relative to supplemental calcium is likely due to additional
bioactive compounds, such as the branched-chain amino
acids in whey, which act synergistically with calcium
to increase fat burning and decrease fat storage.
Great Taste With No added Sugar
This high Protein Shake is sweetened with sucralose,
which is 600 times sweeter than table sugar; but without
any additional calories. The FDA approved sucralose
in the late 1990s after receiving more than 110 studies
that had been done over a period of 20 years. It is
actually derived form table sugar, and is a chemically
stable molecule that is not digested or appreciably
absorbed form the intestines. Sucralose is not to be
confused with other sweeteners, which may act as excitotoxins
in the brain. By incorporating sucralose into this popular
protein supplement, a pleasant naturally sweet taste
can be achieved without the carbohydrate calories from
fructose or other simple carbohydrates.
