What Real Food Vitamins says about UltraMeal® Advanced Protein (Vegan):
This protein powder is a great daily option for those with blood sugar issues. A general recommendation is one scoop blended into 8 ounces of water.
Not all protein powders are (even close to) equal! Ideally you want one with no artificial sweetener, no added sugar and a want high quality whey that doesn’t contain rbGH (growth hormone). Ideally about 20 grams/serving. This protein powder meets all of that criteria.
Our stance on protein powders is this: We’re strong advocates for obtaining protein through real food, but for those times when you are in a pinch (no time to cook!) or times when you don’t feel like eating (sick days or immediately post-workout) it’s beneficial to have a quality protein powder on hand. We suggest mixing protein powder into yogurt, smoothies, or with coconut or almond milk. It also mixes well into your favorite nut butter as an easy way to get protein in at snack time.
UltraMeal® Advanced Protein provides ssential amino acids, including added leucine, to support the healthy aging of skeletal muscle and to help address sarcopenia, the age-associated loss of skeletal muscle mass. Each serving provides 20 g protein and amino acids, including 10 g of essential amino acids of which 5 g are branched-chain amino acids. Combined with appropriate exercise, supplementation with essential amino acids and especially of branched-chain amino acids may help improve skeletal muscle mass.
Half of the protein provided by UltraMeal Advanced Protein consists of essential amino acids for better support of muscle protein synthesis. Compared to more common dietary proteins, essential amino acids (and especially branched-chain amino acids) appear to be more rapidly absorbed and better utilized by skeletal muscle for the synthesis of new muscle tissue.
UltraMeal Advanced Protein also features cocoa polyphenols to help maintain endothelium-dependent vasodilation, which contributes to healthy blood flow. Cocoa polyphenols augment nitric oxide synthesis in blood vessels, which supports healthy vascular function.
Additionally, UltraMeal Advanced Protein contains 25 essential vitamins and minerals to support protein synthesis and healthy metabolic function and includes 4 g of prebiotic fiber.
General recommendations: Blend, shake, or briskly stir 2 scoops (41g) into 8-10 ounces of chilled water, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
