MOTHER EARTH LABS is pleased to announce REPLENISH© Whey and Veggie Protein product products now include an improved Protease and Peptidase Enzyme Blend shown in third-party laboratory studies to breakdown protein (hydrolyze) by almost 100% in under 10 minutes.
Did you know that the protein in protein powder supplements must be broken down (hydrolyzed) into smaller units such as peptides and amino acids in order for the body to use it and receive benefit?
Did you also know that most protein powder supplements on the market today are not broken down very well by our bodies?
If protein powder supplements are not broken down or hydrolyzed into their amino acid and peptide components, they are not easily passed through the GI tract and eliminated. In fact, they can become stuck in the GI tract and when this happens they can start to putrefy. This will significantly increase the toxic load that is absorbed into the body.
Furthermore, when whey protein is not broken down into the smallest composition, it creates large peptides that can cause discomfort such as bloating, nausea and cramping. These symptoms should not be confused with lactose intolerance. Lactose is not present in whey isolates; therefore the underlining cause of the discomfort is peptide sensitivity.
What makes Mother Earth Labs’ REPLENISH© Whey and Veggie Protein products different from standard protein powders?
Mother Earth Labs' REPLENISH© Whey and Veggie Protein Powder includes a special protease and peptidase enzyme group specifically designed to breakdown protein in protein powders.
In fact, Mother Earth Labs’ recently conducted a third-party study on Replenish© Whey and Veggie Protein Powders to show how well the protein in the products are hydrolyzed with the added special protease and peptidase enzyme group ingredients.
The study compared One Ounce of Replenish WITH the special enzyme group and One Ounce of Replenish WITHOUT the special enzyme group as a control. In less than 10 minutes (the first measurement point), almost 100% of protein in the Replenish product with its special enzyme group was hydrolyzed.
Conversely, the product without the special enzyme group showed that even after 90 minutes (the last measurement point) only a small amount of protein had been hydrolyzed.
Following are the graphical results from the Mother Earth Labs REPLENISH© Whey and Veggie Protein Hydrolysis Study
Replenish© (Whey Protein) with Special Enzyme Group almost 100% hydrolyzed by 10 minutes
Replenish© without Special Enzyme Group no activity on measure at 90 minutes
Replenish© (Veggie) with Special Enzyme Group almost 100% hydrolyzed by 10 minutes
Replenish© (Veggie) without Special Enzyme Group no activity on measure at 90 minutes
It is interesting to note the group who conducted the study also conduct many of these types of studies on many different protein powder supplements. They supported the fact that protein powders without enzymes are not hydrolyzed well and some better than others depending on the enzyme blend used.
They were also surprised at how well the REPLENISH® Whey and Veggie Protein products performed and further stated the findings on the activity of the special protease and peptidase enzyme group were remarkable compared to other enzyme blends they have studied.
Adding enzymes to help digest protein in protein powder supplement definitely help, but not all enzyme groups are created equal. It is important the right type and a variety of enzymes are selected.
Mother Earth Labs selected the new enzyme group based on the variety and characteristics of proteins in protein powders and their proven efficacy in hydrolyzing specific types of proteins.
Proteins are considered the building blocks of life. Every cell in the human body contains and requires protein.
You need protein in your diet to help your body repair damaged cells and make new ones. Protein is also important for growth and development in children, teens, and pregnant women.
Most people today fall short of the daily required amount of protein needed in their diet to maintain strong and healthy tissue. As we age, we lose muscle and without adequate daily protein replenishment, it is impossible to maintain ample lean muscle mass. When we lose muscle, the body will replace that with fat!
Over time, our body tissue makeup becomes too high in fat and too low in muscle!
The majority of protein consumed today is from commercially raised animals. This type of protein contains "bad fats," antibiotics, and growth, steroids which all have a negative impact on our health!
Also, many of the commercially available protein powders lack the digestive support needed to ensure the digestion of protein.
This can become a major issue for those over 40. As we age, our ability to produce enzymes, especially protease enzymes, used in the digestion of protein is reduced. Plus, the HCL (hydrochloric acid) production in our stomach is reduced as well, which plays a major role in protein digestion.
This can cause symptoms like bloating, constipation, and acid reflux. When this occurs, many people reach for acid blockers and this actually makes the problem with protein digestion even worse, along with creating gastrointestinal stress, constipation, and the buildup of undigested protein putrefies in the gut, causing a toxic buildup! Many people avoid adding protein because of these symptoms.
The basic structure of protein is a chain of amino acids.
Protein-rich foods are broken down into parts called amino acids during digestion.
The human body needs a number of amino acids in large enough amounts to maintain good health.
Amino acids are found in animal sources such as meats, milk, fish, and eggs. They are also found in plant sources such as soy, beans, legumes, nut butters, and some grains (such as wheat germ and quinoa). You do not need to eat animal products to get all the protein you need.
Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body and must be supplied by food. They do not need to be eaten at one meal. The balance over the whole day is more important.
Nonessential amino acids are made by the body from essential amino acids or in the normal breakdown of proteins.
Conditional amino acids are needed in times of illness and stress.
REPLENISH offers many benefits over your standard protein powder on the market today!
One of the main benefits in both REPLENISH protein formulas is the addition of specialized Enzyme Blends.
A protein digestive enzyme complex containing special proteases and peptidases formulated to breakdown protein and optimize delivery of amino acids from protein supplements. This special enzyme group also helps to reduce gastric distress and the discomfort that can occur when taking a protein supplement without digestive enzymes.
A comprehensive digestive enzyme complex to provide further digestive health support:
First, we only use the finest ingredients starting with our unique blend of Whey Isolate and Concentrated Protein. This blend provides a very high amount of usable protein per serving, 24 grams per scoop! This level provides an ample amount of protein to meet your nutritional needs and also provides immune benefits.
Whey protein isolate is a dietary supplement and food ingredient created by separating components from milk. Whey is a byproduct of the cheese making process. Whey can be processed to yield whey in three forms: whey isolate, whey concentrate, or whey hydrolysate. The difference between the whey protein forms is the composition of the product, particularly the protein content.
The blend used in our REPLENISH Whey provides a high percentage of pure protein and can be pure enough to be virtually lactose free, carbohydrate free, fat free, and cholesterol free.
Whey proteins are highly bioavailable, are very quickly absorbed into the body, and have a high concentration of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) that are highly concentrated in muscle tissue and are used to fuel working muscles and stimulate protein synthesis.
We have added a blend of whey isolate and concentrate to provide balanced nutritional support.
For those that want to maintain a more "veggie" approach, we have formulated a top shelf veggie protein supplement.
Our REPLENISH Veggie Protein includes a 100% all natural protein and omega-3 veggie fusion of Sacha Inchi, Pea Protein Isolate, Artichoke, Brown Rice Milled Protein Concentrate, and Milled Chia Seeds, providing 22 grams of protein per scoop!
The Veggie Fusion Blend:
Sacha Inchi Protein, Our Sacha Inchi Protein Powder is extremely high in a highly digestible form of protein providing support to build and repair muscle. It is a complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids necessary to maintain good health.
Pea Protein Isolate - Is a complete protein that is free from common allergens. It is free of gluten, free of lactose, and free of GMOs. It has a balanced amino acid profile. It is also low in fat and carbohydrates. Pea protein isolate is an ideal plant protein for sports supplementation or weight control. It has high digestibility (98%) and high bioavailability.
Artichoke, Yes, artichokes provide a good source of protein and when eaten as part of a well-balanced meal plan, artichokes provide you with some heart-healthy benefits!
Brown Rice Protein, Has many benefits for health and fitness, for all diets and lifestyles. It provides a convenient source of protein for vegetarians and others who follow restricted diets. Being allergen friendly, it may also make an excellent choice for individuals with dairy, soy, and/or gluten allergies. Like other protein sources, brown rice protein can assist in weight loss or weight management, with the advantage of being very low fat and low calorie.
Milled Chia Seeds, Chia seeds are among one the healthiest foods on the planet. They are loaded with nutrients that can have important benefits for your body and brain including: protein; antioxidants; and being a great source of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and other beneficial nutrients. Chia seeds are great for hearth health, blood sugar regulation, and those that live an active lifestyle.
Both REPLENISH Whey and REPLENISH Veggie include the following important ingredients:
Phospholipids are the main building blocks used to make the cell membranes or “skin” that surrounds each and every cell in our body.
Phospholipids, and in particular Phosphatidyl Choline(PC) is fundamental to our existence. These cell membranes are much more than just abarrier to keep vital organelles from spilling out of the cell. Mitochondria or the “power plants” in our cells are also made of layers of these same membranes. The power that mitochondria produce is dependent on the integrity of these phospholipid membranes. So, if we want anabundance of energy and cellular health, we must support our cell membranes with essential Phospholipids.
Improving cellular health and energy also ensures that the cell can continually repair. The life of the cell would be continually threatened if a repair mechanism was not in place. There is cumulative damage to our cell membranes from exposures to alcohol, drugs, transfats, toxins, prescription medications, and free radicals.
This process of self repair and renewal can be hastened by Lipid Replacement Therapy (LRT). The Lipids used in LRT are Phospholipids, and are found in egg yolks, soy beans, sunflower seeds, and rapeseeds. It is best to have an abundant readily available source of Phospholipids to help support energy production and cellular health. Since most of us do not eat a diet rich in the foods that contain Phospholipids, our bodies must scavenge raw materials to manufacture Phospholipids.
The following articles are referenced from the Government Pubmed Website.
Lipid replacement therapy: a nutraceutical approach for reducing cancer-associated fatigue and the adverse effects of cancer therapy while restoring mitochondrial function. Cancer Metastasis Rev. 2010 Sep;29(3):543-52. doi: 10.1007/s10555-010-9245-0.(
Phospholipids are also found surrounding nerves and in brain tissue. The most abundant Phospholipid is Phosphatidyl Choline, which makes up 70 percent of cell and mitochondria membranes, and the most abundant source of choline. Phosphatidyl Choline can be hydrolyzed into phosphatidatic acid and choline. The reason this is mentioned, choline is needed to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. The mechanism of action for the most common drugs used to treat Alzheimer’s disease is to increase the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain.
One of the best ways to increase "Glucagon," which helps with fat burning, is to increase your protein intake!
Protein is the best fat-loss tool we have and most people that are fighting the "Battle of the Bulge" tend to go the other way and reduce protein and fats from their diet.
When you reduce your protein and good fats, you force your body to store more fat and lose muscle causing that "Skinny Fat" look!
Those nagging cravings that most fight when dieting can also be suppressed by increasing your protein intake. Protein suppresses the hunger hormone ghrelin and helps to release muscle building hormones, like testosterone. This helps to reduce the loss of muscle tissue and increases your stamina, strength. More testosterone also means increased libido!
Another major benefit of increasing your protein is it helps to boost serotonin, the "Feel Good Hormone!"
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (brain chemical) that is involved in many vital body functions and is very important in the regulation of mood and sleep.
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that is present in protein foods, including our REPLENISH Protein Powders. This amino acid is the building block for the neurotransmitter serotonin.
A well-balanced diet needs to include enough protein. Most people today rarely get an adequate amount of protein on a daily basis. That is where REPLENISH can fill the void!
Our REPLENISH Veggie Protein provides vegetarians with plenty of essential amino acids that are typically lacking in their diet!
