Why is protein so important for weight loss?
Protein is the quintessential diet food because it has the unique ability to stabilize blood sugar and control hunger. Swings in blood sugar are the cause of hunger and cravings. The desire to eat and over eat when your blood sugar drops is stronger that most people’s willpower can handle. Controlling blood sugar therefore becomes an important tool to curbing appetite. Protein, through a variety of effects on gut hormones, prevents low blood sugar and creates a feeling of satiety or fullness. This is why every major successful weight loss program focuses on protein consumption. We believe that ProFUSE is the best protein supplement on the market for weight loss!
Why is profuse the ideal protein supplement for athletes and post work out recovery?
Exercise causes micro-trauma to your muscles that must be repaired and then enhanced to improve muscle strength and endurance. Your body has mechanisms to do this, but it needs the building blocks. ProFUSE supplies the body with all the essential and non-essential amino acids necessary to rebuild skeletal muscle. It does it through a unique mechanism that makes it ideal for rapid muscle recovery. ProFUSE is hydrolyzed (pre-digested) so the amino acids are absorbed into the blood stream much faster than most protein supplements. In addition, each ounce of ProFUSE contains 500mg of Citralline which causes blood vessel dilation in the muscles, enhancing uptake of nutrients; and enhances the clearance of lactic breakdown to increase muscle performance.
Why is Citralline added to ProFUSE?
Citralline is an amino acid that is used as a sports performance and a cardio vascular health supplement. In the body, Citralline is converted to nitric oxide (N.O.) which helps relax the arteries to improve blood flow throughout the body and especially the muscles. Improved blood flow to the muscles enhances nutrient uptake and lactic acid removal, resulting in improved endurance and less fatigue.
Citralline may also ease the symptoms of mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.
Why does ProFUSE contain vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is known as the “energy vitamin” and is essential for many critical functions in your body, including: energy production, red blood cell formation, and support of your immune system.
Recent studies indicate that 25-50% of the population have sub-optimal levels of vitamin B12.
Why does ProFUSE have Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3, the sunshine vitamin, is vital to regulating calcium and phosphorus absorption to provide for good bone health.
Vitamin D3 is also important in facilitating immune function and has been found to be helpful in enhancing weight loss and improving depression.
In certain parts of the country, Vitamin D deficiency is endemic.
