A high-protein diet has many advantages, as protein is essential for tissue repair and lean muscle growth. In fact, many active adults may need more protein than a typical diet provides.** However, modern diets in general, and high-protein foods in particular, do not contain an optimal amount of prebiotics – special types of fiber found in some plant foods, which feed beneficial bacteria in the gut and help them to thrive. There are more bacteria than cells in our bodies, and modern science is confirming the importance of maximizing the good strains and minimizing the bad ones, and that prebiotics play an important role in this process. But people on high-protein diets may be consuming even fewer prebiotics than average, posing more of a challenge to maintaining optimal bacterial flora.
Nutrasumma addresses this important yet often-neglected health issue by offering all the proven benefits of high-quality whey protein in combination with XOS, a unique and clinically tested prebiotic fiber.
XOS was recently shown to increase beneficial Bifidobacteria populations by 20 percent in a double-blind, placebo-controlled human study conducted at UCLA.**
