CrossBody 365 Organic Shake is a delicious, soy and fructose-free functional food powder that features 21 grams/serving of bio-active, New Zealand-sourced, pure whey protein, a proprietary fiber blend containing a prebiotic for gastrointestinal and cardiovascular support, and additional amino acids to enhance and maintain lean body mass. To help ensure patient compliance, this formula is available in a variety of taste-tempting flavors.
New Zealand Biosciences® Proprietary Whey Protein Blend (NZ Whey Protein Concentrate, L-Glutamine, Glycine, and Taurine) is sourced from New Zealand, which is known for its highly strict dairy processing standards. Guaranteed 100% pure (hormone-free), this high biological value whey concentrate contains a rich array of essential and non-essential amino acids, as well as high levels of bioactive immunoglobulins to support the immune system and intestinal function. Resistant to peptic digestion, the immunoglobulins increase the host’s defense against foreign microbes, reduce inflammation, and may reduce the likelihood of allergic reactions. Whey protein is the “gold standard” of protein for serious athletes, providing support for healthy blood pressure, LDL cholesterol, and C-reactive protein levels.
Glutamine and Glycine, in combination with the cysteine-rich whey protein, promote glutathione synthesis and combat free radicals. Glutamine, crucial in nitrogen metabolism, is important for replenishing amino acid stores, especially after exercise or stress. This amino acid aids in intestinal cell proliferation, thereby preserving gut barrier function and intestinal health.
Glycine, an inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter, is an important constituent of collagen and a building block for other substances such as CoA, nucleic acids, creatine phosphate, purines, bile, and other amino acids.
Taurine, a derivative of sulfur-containing cysteine, has many healthful clinical applications, including the support of stable cell membranes, cardiovascular health, glucose tolerance, detoxification, and bile salt synthesis.
Aminogen® is a patented, natural, plant-derived enzyme that is clinically proven to increase protein digestibility and amino acid absorption, thereby boosting nitrogen retention and aiding in the synthesis of muscle mass and strength, as well as promoting deep muscle recovery.
Fiber Blend (Inulin from non-GMO Chicory, Beta Glucans, Oat Fiber, Corn Bran) supplies six grams of fiber per serving of Food Balance. These fibers favorably affect serum lipids, healthy intestinal flora, formation of short-chain fatty acids, and blood sugar levels. Beta glucans and lignins impact the binding of bile acids and maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels. Beta glucans may offset immunosuppression caused by intense exercise.
Medium Chain Triglycerides are a rapidly absorbed, easily metabolized, and quick form of energy.
