Pure Plant Protein Description from Life Extension
Up until now the loss of muscle strength has been an unavoidable fact of normal aging. Research shows that humans undergo a 5-10 percent loss of total muscle mass each decade after age 40.
Less well known are the life-threatening consequences. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, injuries sustained during falls as a result of lost functional strength are the number one cause of accidental death in people over 65.
Published studies have firmly established that aging individuals need more dietary protein than younger people to promote healthy muscle mass as they age. The problem is that many older people are rightly told to limit animal protein intake, which carries the risk of toxins, saturated fats, elevated cholesterol and other health threats.
Now you can obtain the protein you need in a highly digestible, vegetarian form with Pure Plant Protein.
First, we brought together a unique combination of high-quality pea, rice, and artichoke proteins. We added metabolically active branched-chain amino acids (valine, leucine, isoleucine) glycine and glutamine to form a complete protein without animal products or common allergens. Then we included an array of prebiotic compounds to maintain healthy intestinal flora. The result? An unparalleled array of health-promoting benefits. A perfect synergistic legume and grain blend provides all essential amino acids. Support for recovery after workouts. Free of dairy, soy, wheat, and gluten for individuals who do not tolerate these dietary components well. Low fat, no cholesterol. No artificial sweeteners and no xylitol, maltitol, or sorbitol (sugar alcohols). Mixes with cold water into a full-bodied drink, not thin and unsatisfying. Oat beta-glucans help reduce after-meal blood glucose surges. Prebiotic inulins, the nutrients beneficial bacteria thrive on. These inulins are complex, lasting longer in the digestive tract and enabling beneficial bacteria to distribute into the colon.
