Overcoming the limitations of
plant-based proteins to achieve better physical
performance and optimal health.*
From active individuals to professional athletes, more consumers today want to get their protein from plant-based sources.
As consumers become interested in plant-based foods, studies show that they prefer combining their proteins with probiotics rather than enzymes.¹
Plant-based proteins do not contain optimal levels of key amino acids and are not absorbed by the body as efficiently as those from animal proteins.
AminoAlta™ significantly boosts the body’s ability to absorb plant-based amino acids, the building blocks of proteins.*
HOW AMINOALTA WORKS
AminoAlta’s proprietary, patented blend of two Lactobacillus paracasei strains has been scientifically shown to increase the body’s ability to absorb key amino acids from pea protein.
The more amino acids your body can get from food, the more protein your body can create to build muscle, strengthen bones, support the immune system, and more.
Protein powders have varying levels of protein after fats, carbohydrates, minerals, and other components are removed. Whey protein powder can be 80% to 90% protein, whereas plant-based powders are typically between 45% to 75% protein.
With plant-protein powders, the quantity of other components the body must digest along with the protein may prevent the body from absorbing plant-based amino acids as effectively as those derived from animal sources.*
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study, 15 physically active men consumed 20 grams of pea protein with either AminoAlta or a placebo for two weeks separated by a 4-week washout period. Blood samples were taken at baseline and 30-, 60-, 120- and 180-minutes post-consumption and analyzed for amino acid content.
Those men who consumed the pea plant protein along with the probiotic combination exhibited significantly increased methionine, histidine, valine, leucine, isoleucine, tyrosine, as well as total BCAAs and total EAAs maximum concentrations (Cmax) and AUC without significantly changing the time to reach maximum concentrations.⁴
This research suggests that AminoAlta does the hard work of freeing amino acids from their protein structure, making them more bioavailable for the body to absorb, and more effective in the optimization of muscle health.*
Our research demonstrates that AminoAlta made all amino acids more bioavailable.
Those taking AminoAlta showed significant increases in absorption of amino acids from pea protein, one of the top plant-based protein sources today.
AminoAlta is comprised of two (2) L. paracasei strains (CNCM I-1572 + DSM 26760) in a 50/50 blend.
A single dose of AminoAlta is recommended at 10 billion colony forming units (CFU).
AminoAlta strains and technology are protected by international and U.S. patents and patents pending.
AminoAlta is offered as a bulk powder in a concentration of 160 billion CFU/g.
AminoAlta is suitable for finished dose forms such as capsules, stick packs and sachets.
AminoAlta can be sold as a companion or “boost” to be taken with pea or plant proteins.
Plant-based protein products containing AminoAlta may include a scientifically supported structure-and-function claim calling out greater protein absorption and associated health benefits.
