VegaPro XYMOGEN's proprietary blend of highly digestible pea protein isolate, glycine, taurine, rice protein concentrate, and L-glutamine, is the cornerstone of FIT Food Lean Complete. Aminogen is added to enhance protein digestion and absorption. The combination of pea protein and rice protein achieves an amino acid score of 100% and supports protein metabolism and healthy body composition.
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 2.4-6) 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.
Chitin-Glucan is incorporated into FIT Food Lean Complete to support antioxidant activity and cardiovascular health. This purified, insoluble, gluten-free fiber ingredient composed of chitin (N-acetyl-D-glucosamine) and beta(1,3)-glucan chains 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) revealed that 1.5 g/d of chitin-glucan 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. FIT Food Lean Complete provides 2.25 g of chitin-glucan per serving.
Micronutrient Support FIT Food Lean Complete delivers a balanced profile of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, nutrients vital to supporting the vast array of metabolic processes in the body.14 B vitamins are present in their bioactive forms, including riboflavin 5'-phosphate, pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, methylcobalamin, and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate as Quatrefolic
Fructose-Free FIT Food Lean Complete contains dried cane syrup and stevia in place of fructose. Animal and human research suggests that superfluous consumption of fructose increases visceral 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.
