Understanding Proteins- a building block of nutrition

As the global leader in Nutraceuticals, GNC has been making high-quality protein supplements for over 80 years. Proteins are essential for basic wear and tear of the body’s tissues.

Let’s look at Proteins in detail, and let’s bust some myths about this essential nutrient.

GNC is committed to help better manage the growing lifestyle issues we face in India- fatigue, stress, vitamin deficiencies, weight loss, cholesterol to name a few, through the principles of ‘Scientific Nutrition’ using the 4 building blocks of nutrition- Multivitamins, Omega-3s, Probiotics and Proteins- all of which have an the essential role in our diet and in our pursuit to ‘Live Well’!

As an important component of every cell in the body, Protein is essential

  • For strengthening our immune system.
  • It regulates the activity of cells and organs by stimulating the action of enzymes and hormones
  • Builds lean muscle mass and burns fat, increases the body’s metabolic rate.
  • For Weight watchers, protein has an added benefit- it provides satiety, or the feeling of fullness after a meal by accelerating the action of Satiety hormone-Leptin, thereby decreasing binge eating practices.

There are many types of protein supplements that are available.

So what’s right for you?

It entirely depends on your individual goals, an intensity of activity, dietary preferences and restrictions. GNC brings to you a wide range of protein supplements which not only caters to sports people but also to the laymen, even to the sedentary. Their superior protein formulas and products contain the full amount of protein stated on the label and are 100% real protein. The 80-year-old globally trusted brand ensures quality, potency, and taste of protein supplements.

If you walk into a GNC store, you get exactly what you pay for with their proteins- each GNC Protein supplement is guaranteed to carry the exact amount of protein stated on the label and it’s 100% real protein, with no other spurious ingredients. This is the GNC difference- a safe, potent product, true to its label and guaranteed to give you the results you seek. It’s a reputation GNC has built over the last 80 years, and a guarantee they take very seriously. This is not necessarily the case with other brands, where independent testing has proved the presence of added ingredients which spike test results making the product appear to have more protein than it actually contains.

Determining the amount of real protein comes down to accurate testing and measurement. To determine this, the nitrogen from other other ingredients like amino acids, betaine, and creatine are subtracted, to arrive at an accurate calculation of real protein content.  Some companies use this practice to spike their test results- it’s a practice referred to as ‘amino spiking’ and ‘protein spiking’ and is done specifically when the ingredients are not whole proteins. Though these ingredients have their own specific benefit and purpose, they should not be counted as protein grams.

When it comes to superior things it is the little things that matter. And this eye of detail is what keeps GNC well above the rest. With a guarantee that each GNC Brand Protein contains the full amount of protein listed on the label with no protein spiking.
