Metagenics UltraMeal Advanced Protein - French Vanilla - 22.72 oz
Metagenics UltraMeal Advanced Protein in the delicous French Vanilla flavor provides nutritional support for aging related muscle loss. UltraMeal Advanced is a medical food specially formulated to support the nutritional management of sarcopenia (Learn More About Sarcopenia and How To Fight It). Sarcopenia literally means “lack of flesh.” It’s a condition of age-associated muscle degeneration that becomes more common in people over the age of 50 although it can start earlier. Sarcopenia is caused by an imbalance between signals for muscle cell growth and signals for teardown. Your body normally keeps signals for growth and teardown in balance. As you age, your body becomes resistant to growth signals, resulting in muscle loss.
UltraMeal Advanced is a medical food specially formulated to support the nutritional management of sarcopenia. This advanced formula features essential 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. Leucine is the most plentiful branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) in the body. BCAAs are found in high proportions in muscle when compared to other amino acids, and they have a unique purpose. Unlike other amino acids, muscles can burn BCAAs as fuel. Due to this function, your body’s supply of leucine (and other BCAAs) diminishes when you exercise and can also diminish as you age, and you must regularly replenish it through your diet or supplementation
Each serving of UltraMeal Advanced Protein provides 20 g of protein from a proprietary blend of pea and rice and amino acids. 10 g (of the total protein) consist of essential amino acids including 5 g of BCAA, which, combined with exercise, may help support muscle maintenance.
Cocoa polyphenols support processes that contribute to healthy blood flow and vascular function.
Additionally UltraMeal Advanced Protein contains 20+ essential vitamins and minerals—including calcium L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF, a body-ready folate), methylcobalamin (vitamin B12)—to support protein synthesis and healthy metabolic function, and 4 g of prebiotic isomalto-oligosaccharides.
• 17 g of intact protein from a proprietary blend of pea and rice proteins + 3 g of added EAA for 20 g of protein
• 10 g (half the total protein) of essential amino acids, including 5 g of BCAAs, for better support of muscle growth and maintenanceâ—†
• Cocoa polyphenols to help support processes that contribute to healthy blood flow and vascular functionâ—†
• B vitamins—including calcium L-5- methyltetrahydrofolate—a nature-identical folate—and methylcobalamin (vitamin B12—to support cardiovascular health)â—†
• 5 g of fiber, including prebiotic fiber
• 25 essential vitamins and minerals to support protein synthesis and healthy functioning throughout the bodyâ—†
