Tissue Repair: Resistance training creates microscopic muscle tears. The body breaks down whey protein into its constituent amino acids and then uses them to make new muscle proteins.*
Muscle Building: Whey protein is particularly good at building muscle, because it contains a high amount of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), which have been shown to promote muscle protein synthesis.*
Gut Health: The health of the gut depends on maintaining a healthy predominance of good vs. bad bacteria. XOS has been shown to increase beneficial Bifidobacteria, thus supporting gut health.*
Immune Function: About 70 percent of immune cells are located in the gut. By enhancing the composition of the gut microbiota, XOS supports a healthy immune system.*
Metabolism: XOS helps these beneficial bacteria perform many functions, including optimizing nutrient absorption from our food, and enhancing gut peptides and short chain fatty acids for metabolic efficiency and intestinal health.
