IsoProtein Plus® powdered beverage mix is a convenient source of nutrition formulated for daily wellness. IsoProtein Plus provides high protein and calcium from calcium-fortified soy protein isolate, SUPRO PLUS®, and a scientifically-designed spectrum of nutritional synergists researched for their health benefits. IsoProtein Plus makes an ideal beverage and is a convenient source of high-impact protein energy and nutrition of unsurpassed quality.
Macro-nutrient synergists include:
The macro-nutrient profile for IsoProtein Plus includes 21 grams of protein and 778 mg of calcium per serving from specially-fortified SUPRO PLUS soy protein isolate. IsoProtein Plus delivers enhanced levels of isoflavones containing the full spectrum of soy's natural phytoestrogen profile, including genistein, daidzein, and glycitein. One serving of IsoProtein Plus typically contains 92 mg of soy isoflavones, about 3 times more than an 8 oz glass of soy milk and 78% of the daily recommended value of calcium.
Isoflavones and flax lignan have been shown in scientific studies to nutritionally support cardiovascular health, lipid metabolism, bone density, glucose utilization and estrogen metabolism. Soy protein containing isoflavones has been shown in numerous studies to support physical health during menopause through its phytoestrogenic activity.
In addition, soy protein with isoflavones supports long-term maintenance for bone, heart and cognitive health. IsoProtein Plus is also high in both soluble and insoluble fibers from flax fiber and citrus pectin. This formula is well suited for individuals who may benefit from a diet low in carbohydrates and fat.
Micro-nutrient synergists include:
L-glutamine: A conditionally essential amino acid which serves as the primary energy fuel for the maintenance of the gastrointestinal mucosal enterocyte, the regulation of normal muscle metabolism, the support of tissue health and recovery during times of stress, and general support for the immune system and energy levels.
Soy lecithin: A nutritional emulsifier and source of phosphatidylcholine, important for cardiovascular, brain, liver, and nervous system function.
Reduced glutathione: One of the most important antioxidants for protection against cellular free radical damage and the proper functioning of mitochondria and ATP energy production. Glutathione is a vital component, necessary for immune system, liver, and upper respiratory tract health.
Green tea extract (GTE): GTE contains concentrated polyphenols from the green tea plant, Camellia sinensis. GTE polyphenols have been shown to be one of the most powerful of all antioxidants in protecting vital cellular components, membrane structures, mitochondria and DNA genetic material from free radical damage. GTE helps recycle glutathione to prolong its reduced form and prevent its own oxidation, thereby preserving its antioxidant ability to scavenge oxygen radicals.
1,3-Beta glucan: Glycosidic linkages are active agents in the defense system of plants and animals. Derived from the cell walls of certain plants and nutritional yeasts, they help support healthy cellular immune responses and thymus gland function through non-specific activation of macrophages.
