Pro­tein for strength

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Healthy Bones -

PRO­TEIN is built from build­ing blocks called amino acids. Good pro­tein con­tains all 20 amino acids, in­clud­ing the nine es­sen­tial amino acids that our body can­not pro­duce and must ob­tain from di­etary sources.

High con­sump­tion of an­i­mal pro­tein could re­sult in many ad­verse health ef­fects such as os­teo­poro­sis and long-term risk of de­vel­op­ing di­a­betes.

Ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in The Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Clin­i­cal Nu­tri­tion in 2006, poul­try, fish and shell­fish as the main sources of di­etary pro­tein led to an in­creased risk of gout, while plant-based pro­teins re­duced the risk.

An­i­mal pro­tein con­tains a higher amount of acid-based amino acids that can cause greater loss of cal­cium through urine and a bone-weak­en­ing ef­fect.

Plant pro­teins such as soy and peas, on the other hand, can pro­vide all the es­sen­tial amino acids pack­aged with plenty of fi­bre and other phy­tonu­tri­ents when con­sumed in the right com­bi­na­tion.

A con­sis­tent sup­ply of plant pro­tein along with suf­fi­cient cal­cium and vi­ta­min D in one’s diet is im­por­tant for the main­te­nance of bone and mus­cle mass.

Stud­ies have shown that peo­ple who meet their daily pro­tein re­quire­ments main­tained their bone health com­pared to those who eat less than the rec­om­mended lev­els, as it is proven that the body ab­sorbs more cal­cium when the diet in­cludes ad­e­quate pro­tein.

Biogrow HPF-5 is a blend of plant pro­tein and di­ges­tive fi­bre, en­hanced with nu­tri­ents for bone health such as cal­cium, mag­ne­sium and vi­ta­min D3. It is suit­able for all ages.

Re­plac­ing one or two serv­ings of meat pro­tein with plant pro­tein can make a big health dif­fer­ence.

Un­like dairy prod­ucts, the high pro­tein-fi­bre pow­der con­tains no lac­tose and choles­terol, is low in sat­u­rated fats, and has lower risk of be­ing con­tam­i­nated with an­tibi­otics and growth hor­mones.

Take one scoop of Biogrow HPF-5 daily to ob­tain a high amount of plant pro­tein, cal­cium, mag­ne­sium and vi­ta­min D3 for the de­vel­op­ment of strong mus­cles, bones and teeth.
