Good in every body In today’s global marketplace, a growing number of consumers are looking to add more protein into their daily diets.

Protein is an essential macronutrient for people of all ages including: Older adults wanting to help limit the physical impact of aging Active individuals looking for improved strength and better recovery Adults wanting to take control of their personal health and wellbeing With consumer interest surging, nutrition products containing protein are experiencing strong growth.

Backed by clinical studies It is no secret that products containing ingredients backed by real science are preferred by today’s health-conscious consumers. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study recently conducted at the University of Tampa showed BeefISOTM helps to improve lean body mass and overall body composition in adults. In the study, subjects who completed an 8-week resistance program and supplemented with BeefISOTM saw significant increases in lean body mass as well as upper and lower body strength when compared to baseline. A separate crossover study examining digestibility of BeefISOTM, also conducted at the University of Tampa, showed that BeefISOTM is easily digested and readily absorbed by the body. These studies, in addition to pre-clinical work examining activation of protein synthesis pathways, make BeefISOTM a real food ingredient that is not only clean label, but also backed by real science.
