Benefits of Soy Protein

Traditionally we were taught that carbs should provide our body with its primary supply of energy. However, many people have confused fast releasing carbohydrates (pasta, cakes) and slow releasing carbs (whole grains, vegetables) eating too many of the former-the tempting, convenient, tasty variety! Most of us lead sedentary lives, so any excess energy from carbohydrate-rich food) is stored as fat. Cereals and toast for breakfast, jacket potato for lunch, pasta for dinner and rice cakes and biscuits for snacks?! We need protein in our diet to stay strong and healthy.

If we don’t eat enough protein our bodies will steal it from our muscles and organs. In fact, protein is essential for the development of our muscles, which lead to an increase in the burning of calories. Our muscles could be described as fat furnaces as they keep our metabolism running high. And protein is very good at curbing appetite and balancing blood sugar in contrast to many “fast release” carbohydrate based foods and snacks.

Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. It is an organic compound, composed of 22 amino acids, otherwise known as the building blocks of life. Protein is stored in muscles and organs, and the body utilizes it to build and repair tissues, as well as for the production of enzymes and hormones.
Protein also makes it possible for blood to carry oxygen throughout the body. Along with fat and carbohydrates, protein is a “macronutrient,” meaning the body needs relatively large amounts of it. The Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences has concluded that our daily protein requirements should be 10 percent to 35 percent of our total caloric intake, with men needing slightly more than women.

A lack of protein can cause loss of muscle mass, decreased immunity, as well as weakening of the heart and respiratory system.

The widespread popularity of a high protein diet due in large part to their ability to help manage hunger. When protein is absorbed, it sends a signal to the brain to decrease your hunger. Another benefit of protein is that it raises your resting metabolism by maintaining muscle mass. As we age, muscle mass decreases without exercise, so staying fit is a key to burning fat by keeping your metabolism high. Protein also leads to a much less rapid rise and fall of blood sugar and insulin, so you avoid the “sugar highs and lows” after eating sweets without adequate protein. Certain foods, however, provide a healthier resource for proteinthan others.

If you tried to get all the protein you need from foods such as meats, you would consume too many calories, because these protein rich foods come with extra fat calories. You can obtain healthy sources of soy protein without high levels of saturated fat. For example, soybeans, nuts and whole grains provide protein without much saturated fat and offer plenty of healthful fibre and micronutrients as well. If you’re looking for yet another great way to obtain healthy protein, vegetable sources of soy protein found in Herbalife’s Formula 1 shakes, are high quality and have lower calorie levels with virtually no added fat. Herbalife products personalize your daily protein intake to match your body’s needs. With a variety of protein shakes and snacks, Herbalife’s weight management programme helps you build or maintain lean muscle while providing healthy weight-management support. Now that you’ve increased your knowledge of protein, you can effectively enhance your diet and allow good health to take shape.

Soy Protein and Weight Loss

 As we grow older and exercise less, the task of staying fit and trim becomes even more difficult. And while a sensible diet combined with exercise is still the best answer, new research suggests that soy protein can play a major role in helping you achieve your weight loss goals faster.A significant number of research studies support claims that soy consumption can help you lose weight. Soy protein is a low-fat source of high-quality protein (compared to many other protein sources) that can help you build lean muscle mass. When combined with exercise and a healthy diet, soy protein makes an excellent “partner” in a successful weight loss plan.

1) Soy protein helps you feel fuller longer.Recent medical studies show soy protein helps you  feel less hungry, and helps you feel fuller longer.(1) Eating soy may
work by causing your stomach to send an “I’m full” messages to your brain.(2) This helps reduce the urge to snack between meals and late at night – two major causes of weight gain.

2) Soy protein is “low-carb.”

Soybeans are the only vegetable that contain more protein than carbs. As a naturally low-carb food, Revival Soy is the perfect supplement to any weight loss plan, including popular “low-carb” and “high-protein” diets.

3) Soy protein has a ”low-glycemic index.”

Not only is soy protein low in carbs and fat, but it also has a low-glycemic index which means it won’t cause a rapid rise in blood sugar levels after consumption.(3) This prevents over secretion of insulin (insulin causes the unwanted effect of storing extra sugar in your bloodstream as body fat). Stable blood sugar and insulin levels mean fewer hunger cravings and fewer calories being stored as fat. Recent clinical trials conducted by Sydney University in Australia confirm Revival Soy has a low-glycemic index.(7)

4) Soy protein is a complete protein.

Soy protein is the only plant protein that is a complete protein, which means it contains all 9 essential amino acids in the right balance to meet your body’s needs. This means you get the highest quality protein available, with less fat and fewer calories than most meats. And, you don’t have to worry
about genetic modifications because Revival Soy is made from genetically-pure soybeans (i.e. non-genetically modified or “non-GMO”).
