Livamed??Organic Whey Protein is derived from the milk of cows living on small family owned farms in the United States. During the warm months when food is plentiful the cows roam pastures grazing on grass just as nature intended it. During the winter months they are fed preserved grasses harvested during the summer months.
Livamed?? Organic Whey Protein is created by gentle ultra-filtration of liquid whey taken from organic cheese manufacturing.
Why Whey Protein?
Whey Protein is an excellent source of convenient and quick high-quality protein. Whey protein is a great health food because it contains high-quality protein and extremely high amounts of leucine, which is incredibly important for muscle repair and grown. One of the major reasons whey protein is so effective for exercise recovery is that it gets into your muscles within 10-15 minutes after consuming it. That is why I always recommend those looking to add muscle consume a whey protein shake immediately after working out.
Livamed??Pure Organic Whey Protein supports the body???s ability to increase and maintain muscle mass depending on your goals. It also provides micro-proteins such as A-lactalbumin, B-lactoglobulin, immunogloblulin, lactoferrin and glycomacropeptide, which are vital for immune system support and health.
Livamed?? Pure Organic Whey Protein contains highly bioavailable undenatured branched chain amino acids (BCAA???s) and proteins. These proteins and BCAA???s are perfect to promote muscle growth and maintenance. In addition, whey protein supports cellular glutathione levels, one of natures most important and powerful antioxidants.
Eating the right quality of protein is important, but so is the quantity. Just how much protein should you eat?
According to the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Science (a kind of academic think-tank charged with advising the U.S. government on scientific affairs) the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of protein is approximately 0.4 grams per one pound of body weight for adults, regardless of age. The RDA represents the minimum amount of protein required to avoid a loss of lean body mass (i.e., muscle) in most individuals. Based on this information, if you weigh 150 pounds you require a bare minimum of 60 grams of protein per day. There are a few notable exceptions, as follows.
Athletes:??People who regularly participate in weight training or high intensity workouts should consume more: at least one gram of protein per one pound of body weight. Thus if you weigh 150 pounds you need to consume about 150 grams of protein per day when working out intensely. Some research indicates the recommendation should be 1.5 grams per pound for competitive athletes and bodybuilders.
Seniors: There is evidence that the RDA for elderly individuals should be closer to 0.75 grams of protein per pound of body weight for optimal health. Thus an elderly individual who weighs 150 pounds should eat 112.5 grams of protein per day. For seniors in particular, consuming even more protein than the RDA guidelines can improve muscle mass, strength and the ability to complete everyday activities.
Protein and Exercise
Your body is made up of approximately 20 percent protein, of which 15 to 20 percent may be used for energy. In athletes, this figure can be as high as 50 percent. In other words, carbohydrates are certainly not the sole source of energy for your body, despite what you may have been taught.
You constantly lose amino acids via exercise, muscular contractions and movement, all of which stimulate the use of protein stores (i.e., protein metabolism). This is why athletes regularly eat large quantities of complete proteins to maintain easy-to-access supplies of amino acids for muscle repair, growth and energy.
In contrast, if your amino acid intake falls below the amount required for your activity level, your body will cannibalize your internal sources of protein, such as enzymes and structural proteins. This commonly occurs in conjunction with over-training, leading to fatigue and muscle loss.
For example, you may have seen someone in the gym who trains for hours, yet never seems to get stronger. He or she is also likely to have less muscular tone than expected for such a level of exercise. Odds are, he or she is over-training and does not consume enough protein to repair, maintain or build more muscle tissue.
Warning ??? Not All Whey Protein Powders Are Created Equal
Consumer Reports purchased several popular protein powders, to include ready to drink protein drinks, and tested samples for arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Levels in many of the products could, with just three servings a day, result in daily exposure to cadmium, arsenic and lead exceeding United States Pharmacopeia, (USP) limits.
According to ABC 6 Action News:
???Cadmium raises special concern because it accumulates in and can damage the kidneys, the same organs that can be damaged by excessive protein consumption. And it can take 20 years for the body to eliminate even half the cadmium absorbed today.???
I have spent decades researching and making sure the products I sell, are of the best quality you can find anywhere. Never cut corners when it comes to putting food and supplements in your body.
