Whey protein is not a single protein but a collection of proteins and protein fractions (or peptides). Whey protein promotes weight loss in three important ways:
Eating fewer calories than we use for energy is still the only proven way to lose weight. However, not all calories are equal. Some calories - such as those from sugars and processed carbohydrates - increase our hunger and reduce our fullness signals. These types of calories leave us feeling even more hungry, and as a result, we eat more than we meant to. Most of us can resist hunger for a few days, but few of us can rely on willpower and deprive ourselves for more than a few weeks.
That’s why most weight-loss diets don’t last very long.
Gram for gram, calorie for calorie, whey protein produces far more satiety (fullness) than other foods. In a recent study from the University of Washington School of Medicine, When subjects ate unlimited protein, they unconsciously reduced their daily eating by 441 calories per day and lost almost 11 pounds on average in 12 weeks.
Why? Because they felt full and satisfied from the whey protein, so they naturally ate less.
Research has shown that whey protein reduces hunger the most. One study found that a whey protein “appetizer” reduced appetite for two hours, compared to just one hour for soy protein, while egg protein increased appetite.
What makes whey more filling? Whey has high levels of a peptide called glycomacropeptide (GMP), which is a powerful hunger-reducing nutrient. In addition to stimulating the production of CCK, whey protein lowers hunger by reducing levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin.
Another recent study found that a whey protein drink produced a prolonged suppression of ghrelin - which is critical for weight loss.
Whey also increases fullness by activating opioid receptors in the gut. The peptides found only in whey protein bind to these opioid receptors, which then send a feeling of fullness to the brain that signals your body to stop eating.
A fascinating new line of research suggests that whey promotes body fat loss by blocking fat storage. In a recent French study, laboratory animals fed whey protein had the highest levels of lean body mass. Scientists are discovering why whey protein boosts fat loss in dieters, and they believe two specific components of whey: branched chain amino acids (particularly
leucine) and a protein fraction known as ACE inhibiting peptide are important.
Exercise is essential to improve your health and for developing and maintaining a lean figure. High-protein diets have long proven to increase the effectiveness of exercise.
In a study from the University of Illinois, women followed two types of diets. A high-protein or a low-protein reduced-calorie diet plus an exercise program:
Losing muscle while trying to lose weight is one of the primary reasons women regain weight. When you use an ideal protein that is 100% Whey and not vegan or plant-based, you are protecting your muscle and targeting your fat stores.
Many studies have shown that weight lifting helps gain more muscle on a high-protein diet. The amino acid profile of whey protein makes it much better at building muscle than regular food protein sources such as beef and other protein sources such as soy, casein or egg.
In fact, only whey protein significantly improves body composition.
Nutracelle only uses 100% Whey Protein. Our products also have natural prebiotic fiber from the chicory root. This fiber slows the absorption of the protein, so your body can utilise almost all of it. Without this fiber, excess protein becomes excess calories, slowing weight loss.
So, how do you take advantage of all of this research to lose weight and improve your body shape with whey protein?
Not all protein is created equal. The highest quality whey proteins, like Nutralean's, are created through cross-flow microfiltration. This is a more expensive process that produces a very high concentration of intact proteins.
Many manufacturers have been exposed with protein spiking - using cheap fillers to mimic the nitrogen tests that commonly measure protein.
After searching for a long time for a the right protein shake, I found Nutracelle. It's the only one that not exacerbate my chronic migraines (because there's no chemical additives) and help me stay healthy and help me manage the sides effects of my medication.
The flavors are yummy (my favorite one is Salted caramel but all the flavors are amazing), the price is affordable and the quality is amazing. Plus, it's proudly Canadian 😀
I love the vitamins, they are so tasty. I am going to start making the protein snacks tomorrow
I honestly cant live without my nutralean! I am grateful that this product has helped me lose weight and maintain it for years! Thank you! ❤
with socail distancin, no school, "comfort food" at your reach it's hard to keep a strickt routine. YOu know you are domg something right when your 2 teenage kids are asking you for a Strawberry Nutralean protein "icecream". THANK YOU, NUTRACELLE
I’ve been a fan of the Nutralean protein powder for a long time and thought I’d try out the vitamin gummies and they are equally as great! I highly recommend both products!
A nice "clean" protein powder carefully made in Canada. The ingredient list is short ...... the taste is great. Helps me keep to my low Potassium diet. Nut free allowed me to share it with my 30 something son. You won't go wrong!
I ordered both nutravegan chocolate and vanilla, both so good. I'm definitely going to try nutralean line next!
Great product. Delicious, thank you
I ordered the vanilla, chocolate dream & strawberry. They are so good mixed with frozen avocado or berries, I find it masks the stevia aftertaste. I tried vanilla first with just unsweetened coconut milk and noticed the stevia instantly, I can't taste it when I blend with berries. I feel satisfied and don't feel like I am starving which has happened with other protein powders. It also helps satisfy the sweet tooth.
Very smooth and creamy shake. I use frozen berries and unsweetened almond milk. No clumps delish.
I find all is good except the Salted Carmel , I love the nutra bites
I'm loving my first purchases so far. I got the strawberry and the salted caramel. They blend so well with my almond or coconut milk. I am very pleased. Would highly recommend!
Best vegan protein powder I've tried. Smooth and creamy. Great addition to my cupboard. Lo e it with frozen fruit.
I've tried a lot of protein powders, but this is awesome. I have food allergies and lots of protein powders are not safe for me. This is the yummiest.
I absolutely love the product! Not too sweet and so smooth !
I have been searching for a long time for a dairy free protein powder that tastes good. I had not found anything I loved until now! The Nutravegan products are delicious, have a great consistency, are filling and best of all don’t hurt my belly at all! I will continue to be a customer for a long time coming.
Nutracelle tastes amazing! It’s not chalky and doesn’t have a bad aftertaste like a lot of other protein products. I make the best chocolate banana smoothie for breakfast every morning and put two scoops of my protein powder in it!
I love these powders. The flavours are exceptional and the probiotic fibre really makes a difference in satiety. I highly recommend this brand.
I love how smooth the shake is in just the shaker! I crave them and can’t wait to drink it!!!
My husband and I have been following a lowcarb/keto lifestyle for the past 5 months. We were so excited to finally find a sugar free vitamin gummies! Not only do they taste great, they are keto friendly 😊 highly recommend!
I absolutely love, love, love this product. They taste great, are good for you, and are an easy part of my daily routine. My only criticism is that I wish they were a candy that I could eat by the handful instead of only 2 per day!!
This Nutracelle protein powder is our favourite! We love adding it to our smoothies! Highly recommend this protein powder!!
It’s a must have for me! Salted caramel and strawberry are my faves
I was introduced to this by a friend...i truly love the flavors of the protein powder and the endless ways ro use it. I know have started a friend on it and sbsolutely loves it
Nutracelle's protein powder is by far the best purchase I have ever made! I have tried several protein powders in the past, and they never worked for me. Nutracelle's powder tastes great, is great for cooking/baking, and is so easy on my stomach! I will never use anything else.
I couldn't get these on Amazon last month and it said it didn't know when or if they would get them again. Whew, I see they're back. These are the best, however they taste like candy...a really good candy and so you need to make a sugar free candy version we can just eat, lol.
I love the shaker! It’s convenient, really helps mix the powder with my favorite milk, and is so durable. Highly recommend!
Tastes great and keeps me feeling full for hours.
I have just tried the Nutravegan and fell in love with it! Added some ice, water and shook. It feels so smooth and not gritty/chalky!! Thank you Nutracelle!!!
I bought the family pack including 3 flavours Nutracelle, 2 tubs of Gummies and 4 packs of Protein Bites. Very pleased with everything. Lost 8 lbs in 2 weeks making shakes 2 times a day. Very tasty and we do not miss the sweets.😊
We like that they hold a good amount, we can make our breakfast shake and go about our business on the Resort, taking a sip now and then. Nice design and easy to clean.
I workout everyday and I found it hard to get all the proteins that I need. For the last 5 years, I've been searching for a protein shake that suits me well. Sadly, all the proteins shake I tried got "additives" in it that exacerbate my migraines. Then I found Nutracelle. Natural ingredients and nothing "not needed" in it. Plus, it's yummy and affordable. Never got a migraine because I drink it. Thank you Nutracelle, I love it so much!
New! Vitamin Gummies - Sugar Free
