ANS Nutrition & Lifestyle

Nutrition is rapidly becoming a priority for a positive impact 
on health and wellbeing. Consumers are facing an increase in diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, joint disease and cancer, often due to a lack of knowledge about diet.

Good nutrition is an essential component of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and general well being. However, proper nutrition is only one part of the puzzle and may not be enough by itself to allow you to easily reach your goals or your full potential.

There are many factors to take into consideration before launching on a health and fitness regime. Through the years, with a lack of knowledge on diets and general complacency, easily accessible processed foods have become the norm, causing poor eating habits. Many people aren’t even aware that their current lifestyle could be detrimental to their health!

Retailers of ANS will help you to build a diet that will speed up recovery from physical exercise, increase your performance and assist you in reaching your potential. ANS products can assist in body building, recovery from physical exercise and assist consumers to reach their personal wellbeing goals.

When considering training, recovery, performance, weight loss or muscle development, an accurate assessment of your capability, fitness level and diet is first required to tailor the best program for you to ensure maximum results are achieved.

Why Protein Supplements?

Higher levels of whey protein isolate sustain muscle strength and encourage the body to utilize carbohydrates sooner for increased energy throughout the day without unwanted weight gain.

Balancing the right amount of protein, carbohydrates and fats are important factors. ANS protein will help supplement the protein requirements that diets may lack.

 

Why ANS Whey Protein?
The body does not store protein, yet it is the essential component of a healthy diet, so it is important to have the right amount every day. And while protein is found in many foods, like meat, soy and vegetables a superior protein like ANS delivers the highest levels in an easily absorbed easily digested form.

Whey protein is a by-product of cow’s milk. It’s the liquid left when milk solids are made into cheese. Until recently, this watery liquid was considered waste - and discarded, but it has been discovered to be unusually high in essential amino acids and other minerals that are highly effective in building muscle and contributing to all round good health. It is a natural ingredient in both mother’s milk and baby formula, and it is used as a fortifier in many grain products because of its health benefits and agreeably bland taste.

  • Suitable for both genders
  • 
Can be taken before or after a workout for immediate protein infusion
  • 
Can be taken at any other stage of the day / night as a snack / drink for a sustained, consistent release of protein
  • 
One to two serves (scoop) per day can assist in the daily needs of protein and help recovery from physical workload or exercise

 

Whey Protein.
When we eat foods that contain protein, the body breaks it down into amino acids. These amino acids are necessary for building muscle and blood. There are 22 amino acids, divided into two categories: essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids. While the body can make some essential acids on its own, certain amino acids can only come from foods containing protein.
ANS Protein offers many, many health benefits. It supplies quick nutrition to muscle and blood. It helps the body repair itself. Along with carbohydrates, ANS protein also provides energy, protecting against fatigued. It assists with bone health and helps protect against illness and disease as well as helping the immune system function properly.

 

Who benefits from ANS Whey Protein?
As we have already stated, whey protein has many health benefits, and these benefits are particularly useful in maintaining sports health and weight management. It is also the recommended choice for people on restricted diets – like diabetics. And patients suffering illness, or people with wounds or burns can assist the healing process by including ANS Protein in their diet. This is because the amino acids in whey protein are the key building blocks in the physiology of the human body.

 

Why do elite athletes use ANS Whey Protein?
Training and exercise depletes protein levels in the body. Muscle requires amino acids to prevent deterioration as well build endurance and sustain muscle mass. ANS Protein is an easy and highly effective way of supplying these amino acids. But, you don’t have to be an elite athlete to get the benefits. Everyone needs protein, and ANS Protein is a completely natural way of supplying it.
