The need to generate mass isn’t limited to bodybuilders. Older people are subject to sarcopenia, or muscle loss that comes with the aging process; BCAAs can help retard sarcopenia.
In addition, these crucial amino acids have been found to help improve blood glucose levels (Journal of Animal Science and Biotechnology 1/23/17). BCAAs also support nitric oxide production, which is crucial for cardiovascular, brain and reproductive health.
What’s more, everyone needs protein to support energy production and to build hormones, enzymes (which help your cells do just about everything) and chemical messengers in the brain called neurotransmitters.
Just deciding to go with sunflower protein isn’t enough: You need to make sure the product you select is as clean as possible.
What you want is a protein that is certified USDA Organic, without synthetic pesticides and artificial fertilizers, and certified to be free of materials associated with genetically modified organisms. High-quality sunflower protein powders will be free of gluten and produced without any yeast or yeast byproducts. And your protein should be guaranteed to be free from all of the major allergens identified in the US Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act.
One thing you do want in a protein powder is a blend of enzymes such as bromelain and papain. These enzymes help break down plant fiber and other constituents to ensure maximum bioavailability.
Even if you aren’t a bodybuilder, strong muscles can help you live a healthier, more mobile life. Sunflower protein can help you get there.
