LifeCORE provides a targeted macronutrient base to enhance protein intake and support balanced daily nutrition.
REBUILD: Healthy building block of 18 grams of protein per serving.
FUSION: Dual-sourced hypoallergenic plant protein; organic brown rice and pea.
Each serving provides 18 grams of high-quality protein from legume (pea protein) and rice protein. The unique complex of pea and rice protein has a well-balanced amino acid profile-including a high content of lysine, arginine, and branched chain amino acids.
Pea protein has been shown to have a strong effect on CCK and other satiety hormone release compared to other protein sources. Cholecystokinin (CCK) & Glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1) are two of the commonly known satiety hormones. CCK has been shown to reduce food intake and elicit behaviors associated with satiety in mammals. Two of the many physiological functions ofGLP-1 are to decrease food intake by increasing satiety in the brain and to promote insulin sensitivity. Organic Brown Rice Protein is an easily digestible, complete protein source with an amino acid profile similar to mothers milk.
LifeCORE contains alpha linolenic acid (ALA) from organic flaxseed flour and Medium Chain Triglycerides. ALA is an omega-3 fatty acid that has been found to be beneficial in cardiovascular health. Medium Chain Triglycerides are smaller, easy to digest fat units that provide a simple fuel source for the gastrointestinal tract.They are commonly found in coconuts and have been used therapeutically to treat malabsorption syndromes and other GI dysfunctions.
