You probably know you need to eat protein to maintain a balanced diet, but there are many different types of protein from which to choose. While animal meats, dairy products, nuts and seeds are some of the more popular types of protein; soy protein—sourced from soybeans—is another protein option that adds efficiency to your nutrition plan.
Benefits of Soy Protein
Soy protein is the protein choice for most Herbalife® Formula 1 Healthy Meal Nutritional Shake Mix products. As a complete plant protein, it provides the full range of essential amino acids. Like other proteins, it helps preserve lean muscle mass and promotes new muscle development and is the most digestible of all proteins. Because soy is a plant, it does not contain the saturated fat and cholesterol found in animal protein.
By keeping hunger at bay, soy protein can be a useful part of a weight-management program. It also supports muscle development and can help promote increased strength during resistance training.
Facts about Soybeans
Plant-based nutrients, known as phytonutrients, provide energy for daily activities and meet the amino acid needs of adults. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, consumption of 25 grams of soy protein per day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Herbalife® Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix contains up to 20 grams of protein per serving.
