Ultra Protein Plus is a delicious, flavored, nutritionally comprehensive protein powder that contains all the indispensable amino acids essential to health, as well as 25% of the nutrition provided by Douglas Laboratories' Ultra Preventive® III, a multivitamin/mineral dietary supplement. Ultra Protein Plus's source of protein is from yellow peas, a low allergenicity protein source that contains no genetically modified plant tissue and is pesticide free. This formula also provides a significant amount of the prebiotic fructooligosaccharide (FOS). Ultra Protein Plus can easily be added to water or other liquid to create a ready-to-drink protein shake.

The dietary protein provided by Ultra Protein Plus supplies essential amino acids that participate in all of the body’s metabolic and physiologic systems including the intestine, skeletal muscle, and the cardiovascular, nervous, and immune systems. Protein turnover in these systems is continuous and can be substantial. The dynamics of this constant degradation and resynthesis demand a daily supply of dietary protein and their constituent amino acids. Essential or indispensable dietary amino acids must be supplied by the diet as they are not made de novo by the body. Recent analyses of the dietary protein needs of people suggest that age, stress, metabolic factors and activity level may influence protein requirement for optimum health. For example, certain individuals may have a significantly higher protein requirement than others. This requirement may be higher than the suggested requirement of 0.8 g of protein per kg of body weight per day for adults. This higher requirement may derive from a lower efficiency of protein utilization in advancing age, despite the associated decrease in muscle mass.
Failure to meet these increased protein needs may negatively affect an individual’s immuno-competence and recovery from medical complications. Some scientists have also suggested that increased protein synthesis follows prolonged exercise. Athletes competing in body building or endurance sports may require significantly more protein that the normal requirement. Ultra Protein Plus contains BeFlora Plus™, a prebiotic soluble dietary fiber fructooligosaccharide (FOS). This dietary fiber passes through the small intestine into the colon without being digested or absorbed. Once in the colon, FOS selectively supports healthy levels of beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacteria, and other gram-positive, acid-producing bacteria. This in turn creates a slightly acidic environment in the colon that is inhospitable to potentially harmful bacteria and other microorganisms. Douglas Laboratories’ Ultra Protein Plus can help satisfy the body’s need for not only the indispensable amino acids, but also for the essential nutrients needed for optimum structure and function of all the body’s systems.
