Protein is required for cell and tissue repair, hormone and enzyme synthesis, and a variety of metabolic functions. It is especially important for maintaining lean body mass during increased physical activity. Protein supplementation has been found to be a determining factor in increasing fat-free mass and exercise-stimulated fat oxidation. Subjects who consumed a significantly higher protein intake (~80 g/d versus ~59 g/d) experienced a significant increase in fat oxidation and fat-free mass with a significant decrease in fat mass and body fat percentage. Studies have indicated that increased protein intake enhances satiety and supports diminished food intake during subsequent meals. One randomized crossover study suggested that pea protein was superior to milk protein with respect to satiety and intermeal interval. Research has also demonstrated that pea protein stimulates release of cholecystokinin and glucagon-like peptide 1, gastrointestinal hormones that modulate appetite sensations.
While pea-based protein provides a satisfying and versatile source of protein, it also supports cardiovascular health. Animal studies have suggested that it positively affects lipid homeostasis by modulating gene expression; that is, upregulating genes that affect hepatic cholesterol uptake and downregulating genes that affect fatty acid synthesis.
Artinia® Chitin-Glucan is incorporated into Clear Complete Vegan With Multivitamin to support antioxidant activity and cardiovascular health. Artinia is a purified, insoluble, gluten-free fiber ingredient composed of chitin (N-acetylD-glucosamine) and beta(1,3)-glucan chains. Artinia has been researched for its effects on maintaining oxidative balance and artery health, key components of cardiovascular health. A 12-week animal study indicated that chitin-glucan supports cardiovascular health by maintaining healthy arteries, reducing cardiac superoxide anion and liver malondialdehyde (markers of oxidation), and enhancing superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase activity. Human trials have revealed significantly positive results as well. A six-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study (n = 130) of Artinia revealed that 1.5 g/d significantly supported subjects’ LDL cholesterol at levels already within normal range, and 4.5 g/d significantly supported subjects’ natural antioxidant systems and oxidative balance of LDL cholesterol. A 28-day pilot study found Artinia to be safe and welltolerated at a dose of 4.5 g/d. Clear Complete Vegan With Multivitamin provides 2.25 g of Artinia per serving. Artinia is a healthy alternative to phytosterol supplementation and has not been observed to interfere with absorption of fat-soluble vitamins or antioxidants.
Micronutrient Support Clear Complete Vegan With Multivitamin delivers a balanced profile of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, nutrients vital to supporting the vast array of metabolic processes in the body. B vitamins are present in their bioactive forms, including riboflavin 5’-phosphate, pyridoxal 5’-phosphate, methylcobalamin, and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate as Quatrefolic®. The vanilla flavour of this product is sweetened with monk fruit extract in place of sugar or stevia. Animal and human research suggests that superfluous consumption of added sugars increases adiposity, disrupts lipid regulation, and elevates cardiometabolic risk.
Glutamine The conditionally essential amino acid glutamine is important for replenishing amino acid stores, especially after exercise or stress. Glutamine also supports intestinal cell proliferation and thereby preserves gut barrier function and intestinal health.
Inulin This soluble fiber is fermented by colonic bacteria into short-chain fatty acids that exert a positive effect on lipid metabolism and support healthy colon transit time.
Recommended Dose: Adults: Take two scoops once daily. Blend, shake or briefly stir two level scoops (38g) into 175 mL - 235 mL of chilled water. Take two hours before or after taking other medications or natural products since the absorption of these products may be delayed. For prolonged use, consult a healthcare practitioner.
Contraindications: Consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are taking sulfonamides, have diabetes, have a gastrointestinal lesion/ulcer, are taking an anticoagulant/blood thinner or an anti-inflammatory, or are having surgery. Ensure that you drink enough fluid before, during and after exercise. Hypersensitivity (e.g., allergy) has been known to occur; in which case, discontinue use. May cause mild gastrointestinal discomfort. Do not use if tamper seal is broken or missing.
