Last week, you heard from us why Whey Protein is the best protein, how much protein you should get each day (30 grams three times a day – 30-30-30), and the plan for getting your protein.
So what are the long-term benefits of Whey Protein? We’re glad you asked.
- Weight Maintenance and Loss – Whey Protein keeps you satisfied longer and enables your body to build lean muscle that burns calories, even at rest. We always say 30-30-30—getting 30 grams of protein 3 times a day. Getting 90 grams of protein from food alone can lead to consumption of a high number of calories. UNJURY® high-protein powders, ready-to-drink shakes, protein bars, and meal replacement shakes are an easy solution. With UNJURY® Whey Protein, you can stay full longer and crowd out snacks that can cause weight gain.
Remember, maintaining muscle is critical to weight management. Muscle is the main way you burn calories. And whey is the best protein for muscle. So let’s talk about that a little more…
- Muscle Maintenance and Building - To succeed long term, the goal is to preserve muscle mass and use fat stores for fuel instead of muscle. Eating 30 grams of high-quality protein at each meal (or three times a day) provides the body with the best chance to make and preserve muscle mass. In addition, regular exercise is important to build muscle mass. When you do exercise, try to follow it with a serving of high-quality protein.
- Immunity Support - Eating well is the key to staying healthy, and that starts with protein. You need enough protein to be able to repair body tissue and fight viral and bacterial infections. Your body needs protein to create immune system antibodies that attack infections, so make sure to get the right amount.
Medical studies show that adult-over-40 protein intake should be about 30 grams, three times a day, to help maintain muscle, and we believe that’s good advice for maintaining your immune system as well.
UNJURY® helps you to get high quality Whey Protein in a tasty and convenient way. And, all UNJURY® protein supplements and products are shelf stable—so they’ll last over a year after they arrive.
