Protein is an essential part of the diet and requirements increase even further as you become more active, particularly if you’re including resistance training in your programme (1, 2). If you’re struggling to consume sufficient protein for your needs, we know just the product for you! Read on to find out why we think that IsaPro is going to be one of your Isagenix favourites.
- Convenient protein boost
Whether you’re looking to build muscle or include more protein to help reach your weight loss goal, IsaPro is a quick and convenient way of increasing your protein intake. With 18 grams of undenatured whey protein per scoop, IsaPro is an excellent food supplement. Numerous studies have shown that whey protein is the preferred choice for weight loss and muscle growth*, as it contains higher levels of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) to drive muscle protein synthesis than other protein sources (3, 4).
- Your protein, your way
Products like IsaPro can help you to consume protein at regular intervals. Research suggests consuming protein throughout the day can maximise muscle maintenance* during weight loss and muscle building when combined with exercise (5). IsaPro can be mixed with water or added to your favourite flavour of IsaLean Shake. We also love adding a scoop of IsaPro to our overnight oats!
- Helps build muscle
As your activity levels increase your body requires additional protein to build and repair muscle tissues (1-2, 6). IsaPro is a great way of increasing both your calorie and protein intake – add a scoop to your next IsaLeanTM Shake and your body will thank you!
- Great for recovery
IsaPro is the perfect post-workout shake! We should aim to consume around 20-40g protein within two hours after exercise to stimulate muscle protein synthesis and help you get the most benefit from your workout (2, 7). The consumption of whey protein has been shown to lead to greater increases in protein synthesis than vegetable proteins such as soy, stimulating the growth of muscles (4). In addition to this, whey protein is higher in the BCAA leucine than plant-based proteins, which has also been shown to reduce muscle breakdown and stimulate muscle protein synthesis (2, 4).
- It’s delicious!
Who doesn’t love a product that’s both great for your health and delicious? IsaPro comes in a lovely vanilla flavour, and guess what? We only use all natural flavouring!
