The importance of protein
Protein keeps your blood sugar levels constant and produces new energy. If your blood suger level is unstable it can affect your energy level, your mood, your ability to concentrate, and your memory. It will also make you prone to unhealthy snacking and weight gain.
Protein reduces the risk of developing obesity-related diseases.
Building the body
with amino acids
Protein in both the body and food consists of small molecules called amino acids. Amino acids can be combined to form countless different proteins.
22 amino acids are known to play a part in building the body and restoring it. 9 amino acids are essential. This means that the body cannot produce them itself, we have to get them through our daily diet. The body is able to produce the rest of the amino acids itself.
white™ contains all essential amino acids. They help build new muscle tissue and reduce muscle tenderness after exercising. It is rich in Riboflavin which contributes to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
How much protein
do we need?
For an average person with an average activity level, a daily intake of 0.8 g per kg body weight is recommended. If you exercise, do sports or hard physical activity your body needs more protein; between 1.3-1.8 g.
Studies show that the effect of a protein intake in excess of 20 g per meal is very limited. One bottle of white™ contains 22 g of protein, fully covering your need for protein. white™ stands out from other protein supplements because of the comparatively high amount of protein in such a small product size.
Protein has a positive effect on weight loss. This is because the body uses more calories to burn protein than fat and carbohydrate. Also, protein provides a better an longer lasting satiety. So even though white™ is not recommended as a meal replacement it is a great supplement to add to your diet as a protein boost and to keep you feeling full longer.
For optimal benefit of exercise, you should ingest protein regularly up to 48 hours after training. It will help strengthen and restore your muscles. The branched chain amino acids contribute to reducing the delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS).
It’s difficult to tell if the body lacks protein. A lack will usually present itself as malnutrition or lack of energy. Protein deficiency can lead to impaired muscle function and increased fatigue.
Also, a daily intake of protein is needed to maintain the immune system.
