Combat Muscle Loss With Protein
You’ve probably heard that protein is critical for weight management and building lean muscle mass. Did you know, it’s also essential for healthy aging? Beginning at age 30, we begin to lose about 10 oz. of lean muscle every year due to lack of exercise and poor diet. That means getting the right amount and the best quality of protein is more important than ever as we age.
Protein intake is one of many areas of expertise for Medical Advisory Board member and inaugural member of our Scientific Advisory Board, Dr. Jim Logan. With decades of experience in weight management and preventative health, Dr. Logan has joined our One Plexus® team to share his expertise and wellness knowledge and help advance our amazing product line.
The Right Protein
“Since the early 2000s, meal replacement substitutes have emerged as an effective way to get our daily protein intake. In fact, as a high-protein snack or meal, a good meal replacement shake offers both convenience and nutrition.
Protein not only helps support lean muscle so that you can combat the natural aging process, it also helps you feel full. Plexus Lean™ shakes are a great way to get added protein in your diet in an easy-to-digest form. There may not be a one-size-fits all solution, but protein is absolutely necessary for everyone.”
– Dr. Jim Logan
As with anything we put in our bodies, it’s important to make sure we know what’s in our meal replacements—and what isn’t. That’s why we’ve formulated Plexus Lean with premium protein sources that support lean muscle, helping combat muscle loss associated with aging. Lean Whey is also loaded with 23 bioavailable vitamins and minerals along with prebiotic fiber and digestive enzymes.
Speaking of what isn’t in our products…Whether you choose our r-GBH-Free≈ whey protein or our ultra-pure, plant-based alternative, all Lean products do not contain artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners as well as common food allergens like soy and gluten.
