HIGH PROTEIN POWDERS
THE FACTS: -
The modern diet has undergone such transformation that our bodies barely
get the nutrients required for healthy bodies. Research studies have shown
and demonstrated that most people do not come close to meeting their nutrient
requirements and that up to 80% of these people's diets are marginally
deficient in one or more nutrients. Soil nutrient erosion, modern farming
techniques, processed convenience foods and lengthy supply chains, results
in most of our foods being devoid of important nutrients needed to satisfy
our genetic requirements.
The implication of
this is that our current eating habits are causing malfunctions at every
level of our health. The disparity between what bodies really need and
what is currently being eaten is making people older, fatter and sicker
than should be experienced.
There are certain 'absolutes' where protein intake is concerned. Almost
everyone knows that they need to consume a minimum amount of protein every
day in order to supply the amino acid building blocks necessary to support
muscle strength and growth. The higher the protein quality, the easier
it is for the body to use the amino acids and the greater the possibility
of meeting your body's demands.
Lifeforce High Protein Powder is a premium protein supplement made up
of precise ratios of the highest quality proteins available: Calcium Caseinate,
Egg White and Soy Isolates. Included are all of the daily-required vitamins,
minerals, key metabolites and other micronutrients to keep the body functioning
optimally throughout the day. It assists with bioactive peptides and cellular
growth factors to help maximise lean tissue growth, enhance the immune
system, and speed up your recovery between workouts.
The milk protein
(Calcium Caseinate) has been chosen for it's unique profile of amino acids,
and for the 'time release' structure in the body. It inhibits muscle tissue
breakdown and forms part of the sustained release of proteins. This optimal
protein balance delivers rapid and sustained release of dietary protein,
providing a constant stream of amino acids and allowing your body to remain
in an anabolic cycle to maximise protein synthesis.
The Soy Isolates,
from plant extracts can dramatically reduce cortisol levels while significantly
increase protein utilisation, protein synthesis and nitrogen retention.
This provides explosive energy yielding branched and straight chain glucose
polymers that release slowly into the bloodstream to power you through
your workouts and help your recovery thereafter.
Research has proven
that supplementing correctly can dramatically improve health by minimizing
the effects of aging, strengthening the immune system, increasing energy,
promoting healing and helping to prevent degenerative diseases.
There is not one
esoteric gadget or supplement on this planet that can have more impact
on your physique than protein. It is no wonder that the word 'protein'
was derived over 150 years ago from the Greek word proteios, which means
'of prime importance'. Muscles need protein to repair, rebuild, and most
of all, to grow! For this reason, various protein powders have been considered
'must-use' supplements for over 40 years.
Lifeforce High Protein
Powder has been on the market for more than 30 years, AND HAS RECENTLY
BEEN UPGRADED AND REFORMULATED, to keep the body functioning optimally
throughout the day.
This Scientific formulation
has been designed to conform to the special dietary needs of today's health
conscious person. It is nutritionally balanced and is an ideal supplement
for those with specific nutritional needs, e.g. children or the elderly.
It is also formulated to help one achieve one's ideal bodyweight while
following a nutritionally balanced diet.
that the primary foundation of a sound nutritional supplementation program
begins with a comprehensive High Protein Powder Formula, with multivitamin
and multi-nutrient components such as Lifeforce High Protein Powders.

Lifeforce High Protein
Powder contains superior forms of protein (Calcium Caseinate, Egg White
and Soya-protein isolates). Some of the following Amino Acids have also
been isolated: Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Phenylalanine, Tyrosine, Cystine,
Methionine, Threonine, Tryptophan and Valine.
Amino Acids are known as the building blocks of the body and their functions
in the body include:
- Building and repairing
- Forming Anti-bodies
to fight invading bacteria
- Carry oxygen throughout
- Essential for
- Build nucleoproteins
(RNA & DNA)
OF EACH PROTEIN COMPONENT
- Helps to regulate
the transit time of proteins through the gut, as it tends to form a
'gel'. This slowing of transit time may help to increase the absorption
of amino acids, peptides, and whole proteins from the gut due to extended
exposure of the proteins in the intestinal tract.
- Greater protein
absorption may also help bodybuilders meet their amino acid requirements
- Athletes usually
feel more 'satisfied' after a protein drink.
- It helps produce
a greater increase in lean mass.
- A decrease in
fat mass during resistance training.
- It is a valuable
- Slow Proteins,
such as Calcium Caseinate, are better than 'fast' protein such as whey,
with respect to post meal protein retention.
- It has a glutamine
content much higher than whey, soy or egg and can help spare muscle
mass during intense training or periods of dieting.
- It also boasts
a high proportion of glucogenic aminos, which include: Threonine, Arginine
and Glutamine. The glucogenic aminos lend themselves to glucose production
for energy during exercise, and have been shown to possibly help defer
Egg Protein (White)
Egg Protein has been considered one of the highest quality proteins available
for over 30 years. It was even crowned by food scientist as the 'gold
standard' protein for human consumption.
- Provides an outstanding
amino acid profile with sulphur-bearing amino acids.
- Provides an excellent,
high quality, whole-food protein source
The nutritional quality of soy-protein isolates is high, and this plant
protein can serve as the sole source of essential amino acids and nitrogen
for protein maintenance in adults.
- Boasts the highest
concentration of amino acids in what is referred to as the 'critical
cluster'. Of prime importance are the three BCAAs, Glutamine and Arginine.
These 5 amino acids make up 36.2% of high quality soy-protein isolates.
Glutamine alone accounts for 19.1% fractionally behind Calcium Caseinate.
This concentrated source of critical amino acids helps a body builder
spare muscle during a diet phase.
- A variety of studies
have shown that consistent intakes of soy-protein isolate may have a
positive impact on the endogenous production of Thyroxin (T4), Triiodothyronine
(T3), and even insulin over various other types of protein such as Calcium
Casein and fish proteins. Thyroxin is a major player in regulation of
the metabolic rate.
- Research indicates
that soy-protein isolates and peptides may help reduce nitrogen loss
and enhance fat loss during low-calorie dieting when compared with Caseinate.
- Some research
suggests that one soy Isoflavone (Daidzein) may have a gender-specific
normalising effect on sex-hormone production.
- There are a number
of studies supporting the cholesterol- and tryglyceride-lowering effects
of soy, and the risk of heart disease.
