*Whey protein contains a superior profile of essential and nonessential amino acids and is particularly rich in tryptophan and the branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). Since the proportions of the essential amino acids in whey closely complement the specific requirements of human metabolism, whey protein is known for its high biological value (BV) and protein efficiency ratio (PER), which exceed most other animal and plant proteins in the diet.
The whey protein in ProBasics is derived from U.S. herds. An advanced microfiltration process minimizes residual fat, cholesterol, and lactose while retaining key functional components such as lactoferrin, immunoglobulins, and glycomacropeptides. Lactoferrin and immunoglobulins play important roles in immune support. Whey protein is also a useful addition to weight management programs.
Tryptophan is a natural precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of endocrine and brain activity responsible for regulation of emotion and appetite. Rice protein enhances the overall amino acid profile of this formula.
As part of a balanced diet, ProBasics can be used as a daily wellness beverage for healthy protein nutrition. It can be taken with or between meals to support daily wellness, weight management, exercise nutrition or immune support.
ProBasics™ delivers 31 grams of high quality protein per serving and is a source of tryptophan, BCAA, and other functional amino acids. It is easily digested, low in fat, naturally flavored, free of added sugar and contains less than 1% lactose. Its digestibility, amino acid profile, functional immune support proteins, easy preparation and French Vanilla, Strawberry Banana Creme and Chocolate flavors make it the protein supplement of choice.
