    Protein Increases Muscle Mass and Strength

    Protein is the building block of your muscles. Eating enough protein helps you maintain your muscle mass and promotes muscle growth when you do strength training.

    Numerous studies show that eating plenty of protein can help increase lean muscle and build strength. 

    If you're physically active, lifting weights, or trying to lean out, you need to make sure you're getting enough protein.

    Keeping your protein intake high can also help stop your body from losing muscle during weight loss.

    PRE & POST Workouts

    Adding protein prior to working out primes your body: it kick-starts protein synthesis, increases amino acid delivery and uptake by muscles during your training. 

    Studies have found one scoop of whey protein prior to working out can increase calorie burning for the next 24 hours.

    After enjoying a Nutralean or NutraVegan shake, muscle protein synthesis can stay elevated as long as 3 hours, boosting the effects of your workout.

    How Much Protein Do You Need?

    The recommended protein intake for adults is 0.6 to 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day.

    Many nutrition experts now recommend older people increase their protein intake compared to younger adults.

    Women in particular, should increase their protein intake to a minimum of 1.0-1.2g of protein per kilogram of body weight per day.

    Why Nutracelle's Protein is Different

    Did you know with regular protein shakes, or bars, your body can only use part of the protein?

    After about 20 grams, the rest of the protein simply becomes extra calories.

    The prebiotic fiber in Nutracelle's NutraVegan & Nutralean powders and bars extends the digestion time - increasing protein synthesis. So your body is able to utilize all of the protein you've eaten. 

    Many people with dietary restrictions lack the necessary protein levels needed for healthy bone and muscle growth and ensuring a well-rounded diet. Plant-based protein is an excellent way to easily fill in nutritional holes in your diet and help your body perform at its highest level. There are so many benefits to adding soy-free plant-based protein to your diet you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner!
    Taking a multivitamin is an excellent way to help fill any nutritional holes your diet may leave, but it's important to ensure you're taking one that has only the highest quality ingredients. Many companies claim their vitamins are the best, but how do you know which ones contain safe and effective ingredients?
    In this educational blog, guest writer Astrid Rea Cokehill explains the benefits of protein, why it's important, and now Nutracelle can benefit your dietary needs.
