Meeting Nutritional Needs
Americans have an increasingly segmented life, which makes meeting nutritional needs difficult, at best. Modifying or supplementing the diet to compensate for the on-the-go, convenience foods is a REALISTIC solution. Low Carb Diets, Food Supplements and Fiber additives to food or juice are balancing mechanisms used to meet these needs. Women and men are recognizing the associated health benefits (weight loss, cardiovascular and immune health, etc) with these additions to their diet but are overwhelmed by "HOW!?"
Flax-N-Whey™ is the perfect insurance policy for SAD (Standard American Diet). SAD (as reflected by NHANES [National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey] data) is considerably lower in Omega-3 fatty acids than U.S. Health Experts recommend. This specialized form of "good fat" offers a wide array of health benefits. Research shows the consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids (ALA, EPA and DHA) may help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease while improving cell communication and function!
Omega-Flax contains a gently processed, solubilized Flax meal combined with an ultra-refined stabilized source of marine Omega-3's to deliver a robust matrix of 36 mg of EPA and DHA combined with 540 mg of ALA (flax) per serving. Stability of these essential fats is maintained by an array of natural antioxidants found in flaxseed which act synergistically to protect these precious oils. Flax3™ contains large amounts of phytoestrogens, known as lignans, which provide tremendous estrogen balancing support.
Special Processing and Blend
Flax-N-Whey delivers the optimal source of whey protein by combining an ultrafiltered, low temperature processed whey protein concentrate with cross flow microfiltered whey protein isolate. This specialized processing system insures a high quality protein source in the form of short and long chain peptides to increase protein retention - High Biological Value (HBV). Flax-N-Whey is also remarkably high in branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), which are the most required amino acids for maintaining metabolic rate (energy production) especially during dieting or protracted periods of "in-between" meals. Energy production is further enhanced through the addition of trehalose, a sustained energy source with a low insulin response to help reduce "cravings".
Enhancing Your Immune System
Regardless of ones lifestyle daily stress negatively impacts our immune system and our ability to remain healthy. Whey protein consumption has been shown to build our immune system by increasing glutathione concentrations, a major antioxidant necessary for lymphocyte proliferation (white blood cell growth).
