DID YOU KNOW THAT PROTEIN IS ESSENTIAL TO LIFE?
Protein is a powerful nutrient made up of 20 amino acids that are components of every cell in your body. Protein is used to build and repair tissues and make enzymes and hormones, blood cells and many other substances essential to life. It is also an important building block for muscles, bones, cartilage and skin. Even your hair and nails are mostly made up of protein.
Just like fat and carbohydrates, protein is a macronutrient (meaning that your body needs relatively large amounts). But unlike with fat and carbs, your body doesn’t store usable protein. Your amino acids stores are constantly used and must be replenished. If dietary sources don’t provide enough, your body will start to take it from your muscle mass. An adequate dietary protein intake is important across the life cycle, especially as we age. Protein deficiency can lead
to fatigue, muscle weakness and hair loss and can contribute to a variety of other conditions.
WHY MAKE PROTEIN PART OF YOUR DIET
Protein has long been used by body builders to help build muscle, but it is also an excellent part of a low-carb diet or weight-management program. Slow-release proteins such as casein from dairy can help stabilise blood sugar — this also helps you feel more satisfied so you are less likely to go back for seconds (or thirds), meaning you consume less calories.
During exercise, your body requires a higher intake of good-quality protein to build and maintain muscle (lean mass) and promote recovery.
Adjust your protein intake accordingly by consuming more if you are highly active or want to gain lean muscle.
WHEY PROTEIN BOOSTER
USANA 28 servings Whey per container Protein Booster provides you with pure whey protein to boost your daily protein intake, helping to fuel your active lifestyle.
Whey protein is easily digestible and contains essential amino acids helping to support muscle
repair and increase lean muscle mass. Protein helps with satiation or a feeling of fullness,
supporting your weight management goals. The source of whey protein in USANA® Foods is from cows that have not been treated with synthetic hormones (no added rbST or BGH). In
addition, the whey protein has been processed using low temperature pasteurisation to
minimise denaturing of the protein.

“The main benefit of Whey Protein Booster for an elite athlete is that it helps with recovery, which is just as important as the training. When you are training two to three times per day recovery is crucial for the athlete and using USANA’s Whey Protein Booster is a huge boost of good-quality protein for my recovery, therefore allowing me to train harder every day.”
