Not All Protein Is Created Equal
It’s not common knowledge, but an egg does not equal a steak does not equal hemp protein powder does not equal branched-chain amino acids.
This is because your body doesn’t absorb protein directly. It breaks them down into amino acids and absorbs those, using them to build its own protein. But even then, it only uses a small percentage of them to actually build protein and the rest get converted into energy and wasted.
The highest natural utilization of amino acids can be found in human breast milk, with a 49% utilization. This is fantastic for growing babies, but not so useful for the rest of us. The next highest ratio can be found in whole eggs, with a 48% utilization.
And after that? It just keeps going down.
When we get to the protein source used by most protein and meal replacement shakes, things like whey protein or pea protein, these are all in the 16 – 18% utilization. So for every 20g of whey protein you consume, your body is only using a minuscule 3.6g to build protein structures in your body.
And the highly touted BCAAs? These are only 2% Utilization for building protein structures. You would have to eat 50g of this tasteless powder just to turn 2g of it into usable protein. That’s not to say BCAAs don’t have benefits for your muscles because they do. Especially if you are fasting. However, they are not a complete protein without the 5 other essential amino acids and cannot be fully utilized without them.
No matter how much “protein” these highly marketed protein and meal replacement shakes make of the “amount of protein,” the quality of the protein is just not that great.
They are inefficient at best.
Amino Synergy IdealMeal
Amino Synergy: Intentional Nourishment’s signature product, the ultimate protein source… a proprietary blend of Amino Acids with a utilization over 99%. This is the best possible source for all your body’s needs. Protein makes up your body’s entire functional structure: bones, muscles, cells, and enzymes. And without the building blocks of protein, your health, your performance, your quality of life suffers.
MCT Oil: Medium Chain Triglycerides are metabolized by your body into ketones, which are the most efficient energy source for your body and brain. A few grams of MCTs are like rocket fuel for your whole system and keep you energized, focused, and full longer. Our high quality MCT is comprised of only caprylic (C8) and capric acids (C10), the two most effective MCTs there are.
Carb 10: Carbohydrates are the fastest source of biofuel our bodies have and are important for maintaining your energy over the course of the day. Unfortunately, most carbs spike your blood sugar and insulin, crashing your energy levels and promoting fat accumulation. Carb10 is the latest innovation in nutrition. Derived from peas, its unique structure allows for easy absorption and quick energy without raising insulin or blood sugar levels. All the energy and benefits without any of the downside.
Vitamins and Minerals: This blend contains 22 essential vitamins and minerals everything you need to keep your system running smooth. This includes a full complement of essential B-vitamins, selenium, magnesium, just to name a few. And because IdealMeal includes MCT oil, fat soluble vitamins like A and K are actually absorbed and used by your body, unlike most multivitamins.
Superfood Blend: 11 different antioxidant- and phytonutrient-rich superfoods to give you all the nutrition you need for optimal health and peak performance. Including moringa powder and wheatgrass juice, two of the most nutrient-dense plant in the world, along with cacao, green tea powder, spirulina, and saw palmetto, this blend supports all of your biological processes from energy and focus to hormonal balance and stress management.
How to Use IdealMeal:
Mix two scoops into almond milk (or other nut milk) or water! Enjoy for breakfast, before a workout, or for an afternoon pick-me-up. Throw in a blender with your favorite smoothie ingredients to SUPERCHARGE your protein shake.
When first using IdealMeal, we recommend beginning with a half scoop and working your way up to 2 scoops. While MCT oil is a powerful energy source, it can take some time for your digestive system to adjust to a full dose. If you take too much too quickly, you may experience a loose stool.
Do not use other protein supplements at the same times as IdealMeal, as it will reduce the effectiveness of the Amino Synergy formula.
