I’ve been adding 2 scoops each morning into my smoothie and oh hello vanilla creamy love. Same dedicated workout schedule as usual, but now I am noticing the rewards! I’m full and satisfied up until lunch time, energized through the day, I’ve shed some weight and see a big difference in my lean muscle tone.

This formula is also prized by bodybuilders and athletes as a pre-workout boost and post-workout recovery drink because its clean, easily-digestible protein builds muscle and strength while promoting deep tissue recovery. Protein Lean supports cardiovascular health by maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and immune health by countering the immune suppressing side-effects of stress, intense exercise, and gastrointestinal health by strengthening your stomach’s ability to block unhealthy bacteria and toxins from passing into your bloodstream.
How much protein is enough?
Our protein needs depend on our age, size, and activity level. The standard method used by nutritionists to estimate our minimum daily protein requirement is to multiply the body weight in kilograms by .8, or weight in pounds by .37. This is the number of grams of protein that should be the daily minimum. According to this method, a person weighing 125 lbs. should eat approximately 46 grams of protein per day, a 200-pound person should get 74 grams. Another way to compute protein needs has to do with lean body mass. This method is discussed in the Zone Diet and Protein Power books. Two scoops of Burn & Build Body Protein contains 17 grams of proprietary non-gmo green pea/rice protein. Two tablespoons of nut butter contains about 6 grams of protein. Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 3 grams of protein. A piece of sashimi has about 4.5 grams of protein and an average sushi roll has about 14 grams.
Proteins are made up of smaller units called amino acids. Our bodies cannot manufacture nine of the amino acids, so it is important to include all these amino acids in our diets. Animal proteins such as meat, eggs, and dairy products have all the amino acids, and many plants have some of them. So, for us eating mainly (or all) plant-based diets, it’s important to consume complete proteins every day to maintain optimal health and immunity. I was so happy to find Burn & Build Body Protein Powders because they score 100% for amino acids – 19 amino acids including Glutamine, Arginine and Lysine. Plus, the formula is Lactose Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, Fructose Free and does not contain wheat, corn protein, yeast, colors/artificial sweeteners/preservatives. Through robust research, this is the only allergen-free protein formula I have found that is pure protein, no added vitamins or supplements, so if you are already taking a multi- or supplements prescribed by your physician or nutritionist, you will not be over-supplementing yourself, just getting pure, complete 100% amino acid protein!
