Getting high-quality protein, in the right amount per serving each day, is critical to optimal body function. NO NUTRIENT IS MORE IMPORTANT. Each day your body has to repair and rebuild tissue, and that requires amino acid building blocks from protein.
According to medical research in the past 10 years, “30-30-30” is the ideal protein goal for everyone over age 40.
“30-30-30”, 30 grams of protein 3 times each day. That is 90 grams of protein spread out throughout the day. The protein needs to have an excellent amino acid profile, and needs to give you 2.5 grams of leucine, a super-important amino acid – for activating muscle and tissue synthesis. 20-30 grams of additional protein is recommended with intense exercise.
The whey protein isolate in UNJURY® is the very best possible protein for muscle health. It has all the amino acids (building blocks) that your muscle needs to stay healthy. Remember, healthy muscle equals healthy metabolism, better balance and a higher quality of life.
*Anyone who has advanced stage renal disease should check with your medical team for protein limitations. However, high levels of protein do NOT cause kidney problems.
**In 2006, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, which is extremely conservative stated in “Dietary Reference Intakes”:
“Data were insufficient to set a Tolerable Upper Intake Level for any of the amino acids.” In other words, there was no material data to say that most people can get too much protein. Nevertheless, we don’t recommend extreme amounts of protein. Even during rapid weight loss, when lean body mass is being lost. We recommend against more than 40 grams of high quality protein, 4 times per day.
The mythology around protein causing kidney problems arose, we believe, because when a patient is in end-stage kidney failure (the kidneys are barely functioning and about to fail completely), protein intake is managed very tightly. However, protein did NOT CAUSE the problems.
