Life Priority Whey of Life Protein

Life Priority is very excited to offer one of the most valuable nutrients for the body—protein!!

Did you know that your organs, tissues, muscles and hormones are all made from proteins? The protein found in foods is used by every part of the body to develop, grow and function properly.

It can be argued that nothing is more important than consuming protein foods, and because proteins are involved in just about every body function, it’s important that you consume foods high in protein every day, during every meal to prevent protein deficiency, which can wreak havoc on the body.

Studies show that eating a high-protein diet has a number of health benefits. Not only does it help you maintain and lose weight, but it also works to stabilize your blood sugar levels, improve your ability to learn and concentrate, reduce brain fog, boost your energy levels, support your muscles and bones and support the absorption of important nutrients.

Many people make the mistake of trying diets that involve calorie counting and deprivation. On a high-protein diet, you will feel completely satiated after eating, and you won’t have to deal with the blood sugar highs and lows that lead to cravings and moodiness. You’ll be surprised to see how many foods you can eat on a high-protein diet. Even people on a vegetarian or vegan diet, who sometimes turn to processed foods for energy, have enough high-protein foods to choose from.

We need to eat plenty of protein foods every day to keep our metabolisms running, our energy up and our blood sugar levels stable.

You might eat enough protein overall, but do you eat the right kinds?

Life Priority takes all the guess work out of getting enough of the right protein with our Whey of Life Protein.

We now offer WHEY OF LIFE protein. WHEY OF LIFE is a flavorless, high grade, whey protein isolate that offers 20 grams of protein per serving. Our WHEY OF LIFE mixes instantly in just plain spring water or you can add it to most any beverage. Get the high-grade WHEY OF LIFE protein from Life Priority today and start experiencing the great results that using enough protein can give you!

PROTEIN POWDERS 101

Protein, soy, whey, casein, glutamine, BCAA… the list goes on and all the jargon can get confusing. Protein powders have gained a huge following over the last decade and have become an essential part of the athlete and weight lifter diets. Sure, protein powder can increase muscle mass and aid in athletic performance, but non-athletes can also benefit from these popular products as well.

Like any other supplement we take, protein is treated the same way. Depending on your dietary goals, activity level, age, and gender, the recommended dietary guidelines for protein can vary. For example, according to the US Department of Agriculture, a sedentary, 50 year old female who weighs 140 pounds would have recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of 53 grams of protein per day. Use this easy online protein calculator to determine your personal needs.

The RDA is meant to reflect the most basic nutritional requirement, meaning the minimum amount needed to keep our bodies from getting sick– so not necessarily the definitive amounts we need each day. So, if 53 grams of protein per day is needed as a bare minimum for our 50 year old subject, the truth is she will probably need a little extra to maintain her health and daily vitality. Just to paint a picture, a 6 oz chicken breast contains about 52 grams of protein, so how do we make sure we are getting all the protein that our bodies demand? Enter: supplementation!

Protein powders range in all types of proteins and flavors, but  Life Priority’s Whey of Life is made of 100% whey protein and is unflavored so it can easily be integrated into any beverage and/or meal. Before we examine the anatomy of a protein shake, step into our protein powder glossary as we explain the main ingredients and what they are responsible for.

Whey: a byproduct from the process of cheese making. Whey is the leftover liquid from curdled and strained milk. These proteins serve as an excellent source of protein.
BCAA: short for Branched Chain Amino Acids, BCAAs act in the stimulation of protein synthesis. Glutamine: the most abundant BCAA found in muscles.Leucine: BCAA found in muscles that plays a key role in protein synthesis.
L-glutamic Acid: helps the body generate glutamine.

Life Priority’s Whey of Life boasts 20 g of protein per serving. Coming from the freshest and richest source of milk in the US Midwest, the whey protein is 100% all natural. This protein source carries 4.371 g BCAAs, 1.982 g of which are Leucine. With 3.345 g of L-glutamic Acid, synthesis of glutamine is increased. Glutamine serves as the main BCAA in our muscle tissues so it is important that our diets and supplements are supporting the production of this amino acid. Whey of Life has just the right amount of natural protein needed to supplement your existing diet.

Some other protein powder products on the market can be made from other, un-natural protein sources and may not contain these key protein synthesis components so it is critical to make sure you are reading your labels. Additionally, these products often are geared to one group of athletes and can contain too much protein per serving than what your personal needs would require. A powerlifting athlete that is working out multiple times per day and looking to add bulk will intake much more protein than the average person, so knowing your individual requirements is necessary.

In general, most of us are failing our daily required amount so adding a protein shake a day to our regimen can be very beneficial for our muscle, red blood cell,  immune, skin, and hormone health.
