We recently told you that Whey Protein Isolate is the best protein for you.
So how much do you need each day?
The answer is really important, because if you don’t get enough protein in a serving, the protein value drops a lot.
Medical research says that people over 40 years old should get 30 grams - 3 times a day. It should be spread across the day.
But there’s one more thing that you have to do:
- As you might know, protein is made up of lots of amino acids connected together.
- Think of amino acids as small bits of protein, and there are 20 different ones.
- Different proteins have different amounts of them.
Leucine is particularly important: it is essential for building cells such as muscle cells. The same medical research says that you need to get 2.5 grams or more of Leucine, each time, as part of the 30 grams of protein.
That level of intake lets your body get serious making muscle and other tissue. Lower levels of protein intake have some benefit, but it is much smaller. More of that protein is just burned for energy.
It turns out that whey protein isolate is the highest in leucine. Thirty grams of whey protein is better than 30 grams of any other protein at helping you maintain muscle and maintain your entire body.
Who cares about 30-30-30 and leucine? You do. You care because it helps you keep your muscle – so you are less likely to fall, less likely to be injured, less likely to become frail, and maybe even age a little more slowly. Muscle is important for burning calories, instead of storing them. So, keep more muscle with 30-30-30 plus leucine. Enjoy getting your protein in more with the great taste of UNJURY® Protein
