VegaPro is XYMOGEN's proprietary blend of pea protein isolate and rice protein concentrate, L-glutamine, glycine, and taurine. Also added is Aminogen a patented, natural, plant-derived enzyme system clinically proven to increase protein digestibility and amino acid absorption. Its action boosts nitrogen retention, aids in the synthesis of muscle mass and strength, and promotes deep muscle recovery.
The non-genetically modified (non-GMO), highly digestible pea protein isolate in VegaPro is naturally obtained by simple water extraction, keeping all the nutritional qualities intact. Its 90% protein content features a well-balanced amino acid profile, including a high content of lysine, arginine, and branched-chain amino acids to help maintain lean body mass and reduce body fat. Pea protein has the highest lysine concentration (7.2%) of all vegetable-based proteins and the highest arginine concentration (8.7%) among all commercially available proteins. The combination of pea protein and rice protein achieves an amino acid score of 100%.
Fructose Free Fit Food Lean contains evaporated cane juice and stevia in place of fructose. Animal and human research suggests that consuming fructose-containing beverages increases visceral adiposity.
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 preserving 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, 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.
Fiber Blend (inulin from non-GMO chicory, beta glucans, oat fiber, and corn bran) Fit Food Lean provides 6 g of fiber per serving. These fibers favorably affect serum lipids, healthy intestinal flora, the formation of short-chain fatty acids, and glucose tolerance." Beta glucans and lignins impact the binding of bile acids and support the maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range. Beta glucans may also offset stress to the immune system caused by intense exercise.
Satisfaction: An Added Benefit of Increasing Protein Intake Signals that originate from the gut-in response to mechanical (gastric distention) and chemical changes that occur after the ingestion of food-let us know when we've had enough to eat. Among the macronutrients in food, proteins have been identified as having the greatest impact in this regard. Thus, the effect of consuming high- protein foods has been observed not only to yield a strong feeling of satisfaction immediately after intake but also to support a lower food intake during a subsequent meal.
