Does your pantry have a nutrition gap?
Flu epidemics have us thinking hard about what foods to buy to support our family’s immunity and supply the best nutritional value for money.
When shopping for the pantry, remember that our bodies not only need proteins, carbohydrates and fats, but also vitamins and minerals. Refined carbs and saturated fats are generally affordable and typically part of Western style meals, but protein is often perceived to be more expensive. Correct levels of all vitamins and minerals, although needed in smaller amounts, are difficult to ensure even in a so-called balanced diet, so people tend to buy a variety of nutritional supplements.
Lifegain® ALL-IN-ONE Advanced Nutritional Supplement is therefore a good choice, particularly when seasonal changes might leave your body requiring extra nutritional support. Lifegain® (www.lifegain.co.za) costs just over R12,42 a serving a day*. It is high in protein with 15g per serving from the triple protein blend of soy protein, milk protein concentrate and whey protein isolate, and high in energy. The 24 vitamins and minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and Glutamine further support immune and digestive health. There is no equivalent all-in-one supplement that provides the whole body with the high levels of nutrients that Lifegain® does.
We usually can’t do anything about stressful events, but we can control good nutrition to help us through it.
For nearly 20 years Lifegain® has been supporting the healthy and those whose nutritional needs are higher due to age, injury, hospitalisation or illness. Just add two level scoops of powder to 200 ml of milk, water, juice or smoothies (http://www.lifegain.co.za/recipes).
