One protein form you will not find in LEAN SHAKE PLUS is soy protein. Soy protein is surrounded by contradictory research, some which show it increases estrogen levels. Soy protein is also extracted using a chemical called Hexane, a constituent of petrol. What you will find is the Perfect Protein BlendTM. Formulated with whey protein concentrate, milk protein concentrate and egg white to reflect a 33:33:33 ratio between whey, casein and egg white, LEAN SHAKE PLUS has an 8 hour digestion rate; helping you feel fuller and more satisfied for longer.
DELACTOSED & GLUTEN FREE
Lactose is a sugar derived from dairy which surveys show up to 80% of the population has varying degrees of intolerance to, most of whom don’t even know! The usual symptoms are stomach upset, constipation, excessive bloat, water retention and unpleasant flatulence. This is often a factor other competitors ignore to address in their products as it is generally not something your average member of the public is aware of. You will find no lactose in LEAN SHAKE PLUS. Gluten is a protein composite that comes from wheat and grains containing products, which due to the nature of mass food production and industrialization over the years have become a constant in most peoples’ diets. While only a small percentage of the population are actually medically classified as ‘gluten intolerant’ a diet too high in gluten can easily lead to symptoms such from something as mild as an upset stomach/bloating, a headache, flatulence all the way through to Hypotonia and Anemia. Some may never experience these symptoms irrespective of how much gluten they consume in their diet but we have gone the extra mile for those that have to ensure that LEAN SHAKE PLUS can suit everyone.
As we know, protein is the key nutrient for keeping us satisfied and keeping hunger at bay forming the base of what we believe in any effective die shake formula, therefore any additional ingredient we add to the formula needs to be accountable and effective to be worthwhile as each addition takes up serving space away from the protein. CO-ENZYME Q10 Co-Enzyme Q10 is an ingredient rarely used by manufacturers due it generally being incredibly expensive due to it’s proven benefits. CoQ10 is produced in the body with it’s primary role as both a potent antioxidant (fight and scavenge damaging free radicals which can hinder the efficiency of your body burning body fat amongst others) and to aid the function of the mitochondria (every cell in your body’s ‘powerhouse’ responsible for directly producing energy from fuel such as body fat) and thus energy production. Simply put the greater the efficiency of your mitochondria, the more effective they will be at burning fuel for energy and if one of these sources is body fat the ability of your body to burn this fuel source for energy will be optimised.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is considered a mitochondrial health (your cells’ powerhouses responsible for producing all usable energy) and bioenergetic compound, able to alleviate the effects of aging and disease on the mitochondria and increase the potential of the mitochondria to burn fat. Mitochondria turn fuel sources such as Triglycerides (fatty acids) and Glucose (carbohydrates) in usable energy, therefore increasing their efficiency you increase the rate at which fuel can be converted into energy – by positively influencing fatty acid metabolism ALCAR helps increase the potential and efficiency of fat burning.
GREEN TEA 90% EGCG EXTRACT
Over the past few years since it started being used in fat loss and weight management solutions Green Tea has become one of the most popular and widely used ingredients in the weight loss sector of the supplementation industry. From the old Lean Shake Formula we moved to a purer extract which is standardised for 90%EGCG where studies show EGCG has the most beneficial effects in a fat loss and weight management driven environment compared to the other catechins which Green Tea consists of.
ONLY 1G OF SUGAR
Sugar is one of the most addictive things in the world and a major contributor to the wide-spreading of obesity, type-2 diabetes, chronic inflammation and a vast array of CHDs (coronary heart diseases) due to the negative effects sugar abuse exhibits on factors like insulin/leptin sensitivity, inflammatory response, triglyceride storage (fatty acids). The new and improved Lean Shake Plus now has even less sugar than the previous formulation which itself only had 3.2g making it already extremely low, however we have raised the bar yet again by slashing this to an unbelievable 1g of sugar per serving!
NO HIDDEN AMOUNTS
The final step PNI Supplements has taken to set ourselves and the new Lean Shake Plus miles apart from others in the market is the decision to provide a far more extensive ingredient panel than ever before where we have struggled to find other brands that have gone into as much detail – we have nothing to hide! Nothing is hidden from our label which displays everything you could want to know about the product you are investing in, from simple facts such as protein and fat content all the way through to the amount of lactose and flavouring we have included! 100% no proprietary blends!
We at PNI Supplements are conscious and accepting of the diversity in goals, aims, beliefs and individual differences and believe in allowing customers to have as much information as possible so that you can choose for yourself whether you believe our product is what is going to help you achieve your goals.
