Discussion

Bioactive Whey Protein Concentrate in Get Lean Protein comes from New Zealand, known for its highly strict world standards for dairy processing. Guaranteed 100% pure, this high biological value whey concentrate contains a rich array of essential and non-essential amino acids (including more than 5 grams of branched-chain amino acids) and high levels of bioactive immunoglobulins to support the immune system and intestinal function.[1,2] The immunoglobulins resist peptic digestion. The immunostimulatory function of immunoglobulins increases the host defense against bacteria, viruses, parasites, and reduces inflammation and may reduce the likelihood of allergic reactions.

Whey protein is the “gold standard” of protein for serious athletes. It supports healthy blood pressure, LDL cholesterol & C-reactive protein levels.[3,4] Oat Fiber and Chicory Inulin supply six grams of fiber per serving of Get Lean Protein. These fibers favorably affect serum lipids, microbiota, formation of short-chain fatty acids and blood sugar levels. They contain betaglucans and lignins that impact the binding of bile acids and reduction of cholesterol levels.[5,6,7]

Oat Beta-Glucan, a polysaccharide and fermentable soluble fiber, has been proven to have immune-enhancing, chemoprotective properties. It may offset the immunosuppression caused by intense exercise.[8] A randomized, controlled clinical trial demonstrated that oat beta glucan can significantly lower serum lipids in a high-risk population and may improve colon health.

Glutamine and glycine, in combination with the cysteine-rich whey protein promote glutathione synthesis, combating free radicals. Glutamine, crucial in nitrogen metabolism, is important for replenishing amino acid stores especially after excercise or stress. This amino acid aides in intestinal cell proliferation; thereby preserving gut barrier function and intestinal health.

Glycine is an inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter, an important constituent of collagen and building block for other substances such as CoA, nucleic acids, creatine phosphate, purines, and other bile and amino acids.

Taurine, a derivative of sulfur-containing, cysteine, has many healthful clinical applications including neurotransmission inhibition, cell membrane stabilization, cardiovascular benefits, glucose tolerance improvement, detoxification support and synthesis of bile salts.

Medium Chain Triglycerides are rapidly-absorbed, easily metabolized and quick form of energy.

Dosing: Mix two scoops of Get Lean Protein™ with 10-12 oz cold water depending upon desired thickness. (Other liquids may be used; however, they will affect the glycemic load.) Blend in contents of flavor packet if desired. Stir briskly, blend or shake. Consume as a part of comprehensive, individualized food/supplement protocol.

May be used as a very low-calorie meal replacement (with additional nutritional supplementation), a portion of a meal (e.g. with fruit and vegetables), a snack or a “pre-meal” consumed 20-30 minutes before a meal to reduce actual meal consumption, or 1/2 serving pre and post-excercise workout.
