More Than Just a Delicious Shake
Ultra Whey Plus is a protein powder naturally sweetened with organic coconut palm sugar* and stevia extract in a natural vanilla flavor. Ultra Whey Plus’s source of protein is whey concentrate, whey isolate, and potato protein, a rich source of indispensable amino acids essential to health. Potato protein isolate contains a high amount of branched chain amino acids and is easily digested. Our formula is nutritionally enhanced with an organic fruit and vegetable blend for antioxidant support, and soluble fiber from guar gum. The vanilla flavor is excellent on its own or can be easily flavored (eg, cocoa, coffee or fruit juices).
Recent analyses of the dietary protein needs of people suggest that age and activity level may influence protein requirement for optimum health. For example, elderly adults may have a significantly higher protein requirement than that of young adults. This requirement may be as high as 1.0 g protein per kg body weight per day, or 25% more than that suggested for a young adult. This higher requirement may stem from a lower efficiency of protein utilization in advancing age, despite the associated decrease in muscle mass. Failure to meet these increased protein needs may negatively affect an individual’s immune-competence and recovery from medical complications.
Some scientists have also suggested that increased protein synthesis follows prolonged exercise. Athletes competing in body building or endurance sports may require significantly more protein that the normal requirement. Potato protein isolate contains a high amount of branched chain amino acids and is easily digested. Branched amino acids consist of L-leucine, L-isoleucine, L-valine and are the structural proteins that build muscle.
Antioxidants from the organic fruit and vegetable blend are also important for scavenging free radicals that may cause cellular damage. Free radicals are produced during strenuous aerobic exercise and are a result of environmental pollution and toxins.
