Health Benefits at a Glance:
Milk protein consists of major whey protein and casein among other bioactive compounds such as calcium, vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin B12, etc. Protein is known for its ability to help maintain and growth of muscle mass 1. Also, milk protein supports the lowering risk of metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disorders, hypertension, and some other diseases 2.

It gives energy throughout the day and the feeling of doing something good for yourself. No compromise and with a great taste.
Glucosamine and chondroitin are major components of cartilage that support the joints. Glucosamine is a key element for joint function and repair. It is naturally produced by our bodies, but the amount decreases as we age.
Extend-Release Magnesium supplies the body with magnesium for longer than ordinary magnesium, supporting cardiovascular- and bone health.
African mango extract has been shown to help support healthy weight management. Its active compounds modulate hormones and enzymes involved in maintaining appetite and fat metabolism.
Why it Works:
When starting with a regular workout exercise, it is important to have an optimum level of protein. This is crucial to muscle growth and recovery. Besides that, it is relevant to ensure that the intake is maintained especially if it cannot be maintained with food alone. 8
Caffeine has for a long period been known for its effect on sports performance by improving muscle endurance, muscle strength, anaerobic power, and aerobic endurance 3 Vitamin b6 and b12 contribute to reduced tiredness and fatigue while beta-alanine and l-arginine support enhanced high‐intensity exercise performance 4 5.
Glucosamine and chondroitin are major components of cartilage that support the joints. Glucosamine is a key element for joint function and repair. It is naturally produced by our bodies, but the amount decreases as we age. As a result, cartilage in areas such as the knees, hips, and hands begins to dry out, until it hardens. That, in turn, creates joint discomfort and stiffness.
Extend-Release Magnesium prolongs the period of time where magnesium is released and absorbed directly, promoting cardiovascular- and bone health in a more consistent way.
Integra-Lean ®African Mango Irvingia contains a clinically validated plant extract that has been shown to help support healthy weight lossIt’s active compounds affect hormones and enzymes involved in maintaining appetite and fat metabolism.4
The Science Behind the Product:
Protein supplement is a prerequisite stimulator of skeletal muscle protein synthesis (MPS). MPS is both critical for muscle growth, increased strength, and adaptive processes 6. Protein supplementation has been shown to improve muscle recovery. Muscle recovery can be measured by two biological indicators for muscle damage, cortisol and creatine kinase (CK) in the blood. A study including trained men showed that protein supplementation (25 g after workout) decreased excretion of cortisol and CK in the blood compared to the control group, indicating protein supplementation improves acute muscle recovery 7.
Glutathione (GSH) is a ubiquitous antioxidant and is the keystone of the body’s cellular antioxidant defence system and regulates many aspects of immune function. Cysteine is the rate-limiting amino acid for the synthesis of GSH. Milk protein and specially whey is rich in cystine (disulphide form of cysteine). Intake of whey protein has shown to enhance glutathione synthesis and protects against oxidant-induced cell damage. 8
Even though the mechanism for the effect of fermentable dietary fibres on immune function in the gut has not been established there is strong indicating that consumption of fermentable dietary fibres increase the proportion of beneficial lactic acid bacteria in the human colon. Also fibres can modulate immune parameters in gut-associated lymphoid tissue which is the body’s first line defence from environment 9 10.
The mechanism behind caffeine is due to its ability to act as an adenosine receptor antagonist. Adenosine is a receptor when stimulated will cause tiredness 11. Therefore when caffeine blocks the adenosine receptors you will keep feeling alert and ready for performance.
Chondroitin is a major natural component of cartilage and helps to stimulate its production. Acting as a carrier of liquid nutrient to the joints, it supports healthy fluid balance for better joint movement and mobility.
Sufficient intake of magnesium can help to protect heart muscle, blood vessel walls, and blood vessel linings . Indeed, people with the highest blood levels of magnesium, and/or the highest dietary intake of magnesium can promote longevity .
