The protein in Clear Complete Meal Replacement: Without a Multivitamin is sourced from New Zealand, which is known for its highly strict dairy processing standards. Guaranteed 100% pure (hormone free), this high-biological–value whey protein concentrate contains a rich array of essential and non-essential amino acids. Whey protein is considered the “gold standard” of protein for serious athletes.
If you, however, have a sensitivity to dairy protein or even small amounts of lactose, this is not our best meal replacement for you. In this case, it is better to select from these meal replacements: Clear Vegan-Protein Complete Cleanse (pea-based protein), Paleo Complete DF -Vanilla or Chocolate (pea-based protein). If you are looking for a protein powder versus a meal replacement, your best options are: Clear Pea Protein -Unflavoured or PurePea -Vanilla Flavour.
Research suggests that it supports healthy body composition, retention of lean muscle mass, glucose metabolism, satiety, and gastrointestinal health. Its roles in the maintenance of blood pressure and blood lipid levels already within the normal range are also areas of interest. As a rich source of the sulfur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine, whey protein can enhance immune function through intracellular conversion to glutathione. Whey protein also delivers high levels of naturally occurring bioactive immunoglobulins that are resistant to peptic digestion. Immunoglobulins from whey have been observed to support intestinal immunity and a healthy response to inflammation.
Furthermore, whey protein has displayed lower allergenicity than casein.
Glutamine and Glycine, in combination with the cysteine-rich whey protein, promote glutathione synthesis and combat free radicals. Glutamine, crucial in nitrogen metabolism, is important for replenishing amino acid stores, especially after exercise or stress. This amino acid aids in intestinal cell proliferation, thereby helping to preserve gut barrier function and intestinal health. Glycine, an inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter, is vital as a constituent of collagen and a building block for other substances such as coenzyme-A, nucleic acids, creatine phosphate, purines, bile, and other amino acids.
Taurine, as a derivative of sulfur-containing cysteine, has many healthful clinical applications, including the support of stable cell membranes, cardiovascular health, glucose tolerance, detoxification, and bile salt synthesis. Aminogen® is a patented, natural, plant-derived enzyme system. It promotes protein digestibility and amino acid absorption, thereby boosting nitrogen retention and aiding in the synthesis of muscle mass and strength, as well as promoting deep muscle recovery.
Medium-Chain Triglycerides provide a rapidly absorbed, easily metabolized, and quick form of energy.
