Protein Supplements: Beverages, Power Mixes, Liquids and How They Aid Your Life

In world full of convenient, packaged, and processed carbohydrates it is easy to reach for a sweet or savory snack without thinking about the weight gain or blood sugar consequence. Protein has shown to be the better dominant choice overall, especially non-meat based sources like Resource Optisource High Protein Drink .

Medical Nutrition and Protein Supplements

In a study by Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health it was reported that, 

A 20-year prospective study of over 80,000 women found that those who ate low-carbohydrate diets that were high in vegetable sources of fat and protein had a 30 percent lower risk of heart disease compared with women who ate high-carbohydrate, low-fat diets.

Adding in protein supplements in the form of easily delivered beverages, power mixes and liquids could benefit a variety of systemic functions, namely weight maintenance, heart health, respiratory function, muscle building and stamina.

Suppress Appetite, Gain Nutrition, Maintain Weight

Eating the wrong foods can lead to all sorts of health challenges, particularly weight gain. An easy protein mix may help. When you are on-the-go or possibly caring for someone who needs nourishment assistance, reaching for a Pro-Stat Liquid Protein, Sugar Free drink could suppress appetite while increasing nutrition.

In a study published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition it was concluded that,

An increase in dietary protein from 15% to 30% of energy at a constant carbohydrate intake produces a sustained decrease in ad libitum caloric intake that may be mediated by increased central nervous system leptin sensitivity and results in significant weight loss.

Protein and Exercise

Whether you are weekend warrior or an elderly person working on gentle muscle training, adding a protein mix like Resource Beneprotein to your daily regiment could enhance your progress.

It was found that muscle mass significantly increased when consuming good amounts of protein Research found in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition stated,

There is a dearth of studies that have examined the effects of high protein diets on markers of health, body composition or performance. The International Society of Sports Nutrition’s Position Stand on Protein states that “protein intakes of 1.4–2.0 g/kg/day for physically active individuals is not only safe, but may improve the training adaptations to exercise training

Increasing protein intake in conjunction with an exercise program could enhance body composition and overall health.

 

Research for Elderly Consumption of Protein

Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) guidelines have long been challenged and are often being debunked on many levels. When it comes to the elderly, consuming adequate or higher amounts of protein may result in significantly beneficial effects.

...recent metabolic and epidemiological studies indicate that the current Recommended Dietary Intakes for protein appear to be inadequate for maintenance of physical function and optimal health in older adults. The current body of evidence indicates that a dietary protein intake of at least 1.2 g/kg/day is required to maintain optimal muscle function in older people.

ProSource Gelatein 20 is an easy, tasty snack that contains 20 grams of high quality hydrolyzed protein, the perfect addition to an elderly person’s daily diet. 

Stay on top of protein intake to maintain optimal health and reduce unnecessary taxing on the body from other, unhealthy choices.
