MD: "When Patients Start Gaining Weight…"

MD: "When Patients Start Gaining Weight…"

We recently met with a Bariatric Physician at a large hospital system who told us about his experience with the Weight Loss Surgery (WLS) patients he sees...

""When patients start gaining weight, usually they have stopped using their protein and vitamins.""

It's well established that protein and vitamins are essential, but the validation from an expert in the field makes us want to share this reminder, so people can live healthier lives!

At UNJURY®, we believe it's a mistake to stop using protein supplements altogether because it makes it very difficult to meet your daily protein requirements, which the latest research indicates is a minimum of 90 grams per day for people over 40. Some foods are higher in protein, yes, but almost always bring along fat, excess calories and carbs. In contrast, roughly 90% of the calories in UNJURY are protein.

Getting lots of protein is key to successful weight loss and maintenance, and many doctors recommend using a supplement long-term. A recent meta-analysis of 32 studies, comprised of 3,500 individuals, found a persistent and positive effect of dietary protein on long-term weight maintenance1. And dairy protein is particularly helpful (Whey Protein Isolate is the best)!

Increasing Protein:

  • Improves satiety, so you feel full longer
  • Preserves lean muscle mass during weight loss ... and it is muscle that burns calories
  • Reduces body fat and waist circumference
  • Reduces weight regain after dieting

And protein is good for a lot more than weight management! Ideal levels of protein help with normal immune function, active metabolism, stable blood sugar and keeping you strong. Conversely, insufficient protein is closely linked to failure to lose or maintain weight, hair loss, muscle tissue loss, and reduced immune function.

Use Unjury Protein along with healthy eating and regular exercise for vitality and healthy aging.

Healthy Aging

To maintain vitality as we age, we need more high-quality protein. Medical research says that over the age of 40, we need 30 grams of high-quality protein, three times a day. You get more of the highest quality protein with UNJURY®. You also get far lower carb, fat, sugar and calories than in the heavily advertised flagship nutrition drinks you see on TV.
