1. Twenty-five grams (25g) of highly bioavailable (i.e. absorbable) protein in only 100 calories
Actinase®-the protein used in Profect-is a proprietary blend of enzymatically hydrolyzed collagenic protein isolate, ion-exchanged whey protein isolate and caseinate protein isolate. A precise combination of protein blends, Actinase provides an efficaciously balanced amino acid profile. The combination of amino acids in Actinase is so closely aligned with the human body nutritional axis that the absorption and assimilation rates exceed that of traditional proteins.
2. Nine essential vitamins
Profect delivers 50% of the US RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) for the entire B vitamin complex, as well as 100% of the US RDI for Vitamin C. The vitamins used in Profect are all natural; they are not synthetic. Although present in many over-the-counter nutritional products, synthetic vitamins are not efficiently absorbed by the body.
3. Pharmaceutical grade nutrients for assured purity
Nutrients are processed in a variety of grades. Each grade is appropriate for a different circumstance. Pharmaceutical Grade denotes the highest standard in processing. All of the nutrients used in Protica's formulations are classified as pharmaceutical grade to assure the highest purity.
4. Standardized ingredients
Nutritional elements such as herbs can also be standardized. Standardization is a way of assuring an element is at a specific level of concentration. As an example, a 50mg capsule of ginseng may have the exact same potency as a 500mg capsule of ginseng. This is if the 50mg capsule is standardized at 100% potency while the 500mg capsule is standardized at only 10%.
Many products on the market do not reveal the standardization level, so you do not know what you are getting. We only use standardized nutrients, so you will always know what you are putting into your body.
Note: Elements such as macronutrients, vitamins and minerals do not need to be standardized in the same manner. If fifty grams of protein is displayed on a product's nutritional label, the product must contain fifty grams of protein. Likewise, 500mg of calcium must yield 500mg of calcium.
5. All Natural nutrients
We only use all natural vitamins, minerals and macronutrients.
6. Convenient packaging
Profect is packaged in a container unlike any other on the market. The test tube shaped, patent-pending vial is made of a translucent, virtually unbreakable plastic that is both compact and portable. It is more resistant to temperature changes and physical damage than typical bottles and wrappers. This means Profect can go where other protein shakes and bars cannot.
7. Zero fat, zero carbohydrates
Profect is fat-free and carbohydrate-free, making it an ideal addition to any meal or snack.
Carbohydrates can cause fat storage. When fats accompany a carbohydrate rich meal, fat storage is amplified. Since the average meal contains ample amounts of carbohydrates and fats, fat storage occurs with every meal.
One approach to minimize fat storage is to avoid carbohydrates. However, this is very difficult for many people. Another approach is to eat a balanced meal of protein, carbohydrates and fats. Since most meals are high in carbohydrates and fats, consuming a vial of Profect with breakfast, lunch or dinner helps balance the meal. It also slows the absorption cycle of each meal, in turn reducing sugar surges and insulin spikes which cause fat storage.
8. Concentrated meal in less than three fluid ounces
At 2.7 ounces, Profect is quick and easy to consume (three seconds or less), making it uniquely suited for a quick snack or meal adjunct.
9. Increased thermo genesis
The ingestion of food produces energy in the form of heat. This is evidenced by a noticeable increase in body heat during and after a heavy meal. This process burns calories and is called "thermo genesis". In the two to three hour period following a meal, ingested fats may increase energy production up to 3 percent, carbohydrates up to 10 percent, and protein all the way up to 30 percent. Meal-induced thermo genesis for the average person is about 8 percent. For those on most diets, it is only about 4 or 5 percent. The rich protein content of Profect provides maximum opportunity for efficient thermo genesis.
10. Several flavors to choose from
Profect is available in several great tasting flavors, including Blue Raspberry, Grapefruit-Mango, Fresh Citrus Berry and Cool Melon Splash
