How does FitWHEY work?
Whey protein isolates and concentrates are considered proteins of high biological value, and thus are easily absorbed by the body, since they are formed by peptides (smaller molecules). They are consideres proteins with functional properties, due to their numerous components with beneficial effects, such as lactoferrin, beta lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, glycomacropeptides, which have a high immunological functionality. They are also considered important antioxidant, antihypertensive, antitumoral, hypoglycemic (glycemic control), antiviral and antibactericidal agents. Responsible for that is their ability to convert the amino acid cysteine to glutathione, which is a potent intracellular antioxidant.-. Each serving of the product provides 33% of the amount of protein needed daily, considering the average intake level of the general population.
TMC is a fat derived from coconut oil, its consumption has several benefits, such as: anti-ulcerogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti hypercholesterolemic (control cholesterol), anti microbial and hepatoprotective. Studies also show its beneficial effect in relation to the recovery of oxidative stress induced by exercise.
Cupuaçu contains high levels of ascorbic acid and phenolic compounds, which are natural antioxidants. The consumption of these two compounds is associated with anti-aging and the prevention of degenerative diseases.
