You’ve seen them. A bazillion ads for nutritional supplements that promise all kinds of health benefits. But what do YOU need? What’s the science tell us?
If your goal is to maintain your health and weight for the long term, you are going to need this…for sure. This one isn’t some fad…it’s based on solid medical research.
It’s an amino acid. Here’s why it is so important:
To manage weight, you need to manage your metabolism.
To manage metabolism, you need to maintain muscle.
So muscle is key to managing weight. As a BONUS, muscle lets you stay active and have a more active metabolism. So Leucine should be on your priority list.
Why is that important? We start to lose muscle as we age. Muscle is REALLY important for burning calories, keeping blood sugar in check and maintaining a healthy metabolism.
How much leucine do you need? You need 2.5 grams of Leucine (an amino acid) to stimulate muscle growth over the age of 40 as part of 30 grams of protein. Research says it’s best to do that 3 times per day, spread out.
Good news! You don’t need an extra supplement. UNJURY® Protein powder gives you 3 grams of leucine per 30 grams of protein, so it’s the best. 30 grams of protein from chicken, fish, eggs, beef (just over 4 ounces, cooked weight) will get you at 2.5 grams also.
