Muscle-Building Workout and Diet


Hello and welcome to another episode of “Kyäni
Wellness TV.” My name is Dr. Andreas Boettcher, member of
the scientific advisory board here at Kyäni. And in this episode, we’re going to talk about
the importance of whey protein, but not just any particular form of whey, and also one
of the most powerful benefits that everyone needs to know when supplementing with this
powerful protein. Now, if you’ve been watching any of our episodes
here on “Kyäni Wellness TV,” you’ll know first and foremost that I always derive and
prefer to get my nutrition from whole food nutritious sources. With that being said, though, supplementing
with protein can be a very powerful and convenient addition to helping you meet your healthy
living goals. Now, I want to say that there are some benefits
to supplementing whey protein powder, and I’m going to go over those in a minute, and
also in this video I’m going to be breaking down a particular form of protein. I’m going to break down the different types
of whey protein out there so that you can make an informed choices when it comes to
supplementing and attaining your healthy living goals. Not to mention one of the most powerful benefits
that really not many people are talking about that you really need to know about when it
comes to maximizing your health potential. So, let’s begin with some of the benefits
of supplementing with protein powder. They’re very convenient and they’re easy for
on the go eating. Very important for someone like myself is
traveling, has got meetings to go to, got something to do after the gym. Don’t always have time to come back home,
don’t always have time to necessarily meal prep. So, it’s a really convenient way to ensure
that I hit my macro nutrient goals. It can also be very cost effective in terms
of price per gram of protein, as opposed to necessarily always buying grass-fed sources
of beef pasture raised, organic raised, chicken or turkey or wild fish and so forth. So, when you start thinking about cost per
gram and what you’re getting, and particularly if you choose the right kind of way, in my
opinion, you really will get a big ROI, it can actually help save you some money. They’re great for hitting your daily protein
targets without having to stop yourself full of food every day. Now I’ve coached thousands of people around
the world and one of the biggest things that I have seen is that people aren’t getting
enough protein. They’re getting plenty of carbs, getting plenty
of fat, but not necessarily enough of the protein to get that nice tone, that nice slim,
that nice athletic physique that most people are after, or to even prevent sarcopenia,
the loss of muscle tissue as we age. So, it’s very important that we hit our protein
goals and it’s a convenient way to do that. And of course it can be very low in carbohydrate
and fat, which is very nice for meal planning and the very versatile for purposes and can
be incorporated into all kinds of dishes, smoothies, cooking, and so forth. So these are just some of the benefits that
you want to consider when you start thinking about do you want to add a protein supplement
to your nutrition regimen? And of course, as you know, if you watched
some of our previous episodes, you know that we just recently at the time of this video
anyway launched our new FIT20 performance protein which comes with 10 grams of grass-fed
whey protein isolate and 10 grams of grass fed hydrolyzed collagen protein. Now, for the purpose of this video, I’m going
to be focusing on whey protein isolate. Now, you also know that there’s a many other
synergistic ingredients that are inside our FIT20 performance protein that can help replace
the costs of additional supplements you may be using, and I will break those down for
a later video. Now, let’s talk about the three different
forms of whey protein. Now, you’ll often see concentrate. Concentrate is the most popular form that
you will find in your back stores, your Costcos, your SAMS, and in many of your GNCs or vitamin
shops and so forth. Concentrate is the least processed form. It’s the cheapest form. That’s why it’s the most abundantly use. It does contain more fats, carbs and lactose
than your hydrosolates or your isolate forms. And it’s only 35% to 85% of protein by weight. So, the quality really can vary. And when you want to supplement the protein,
in my opinion, you really want to get the biggest ROI, the biggest return per gram supplemented
with as opposed to this variability of, it can be anywhere from 35% to 85%, depending
on the amount of additives that were added, fillers, binders, flow agents, sweeteners,
artificial sweeteners, sugar and other forms that people will fill in these protein powders
with because they’re cheaper fill up a big old tub but not necessarily giving you the
protein delivery that you’re ultimately looking for. Now, some will tout that because it’s the
least processed form that you are going to get the least denatured form of protein, and
the science and the research actually doesn’t support that. You’re going to see here as I break this down
that you really want to get, I think, in my opinion, the cleanest, purest form of protein
with the highest delivery rate and well as bio-availability. Now one of the beautiful benefits a way across
the board is its high bio-availability, meaning that it’s actually being absorbed and being
utilized, and is rapidly digested and really can help stimulate protein synthesis very
quickly, which is important for muscle repair, recovery, and can even be used prior to workouts
to prevent catabolism or muscle breakdown during your training sessions. Hydrosolate is the pre-digested forums, exposed
to more heat acid and enzymes. It does remove all on one, fats, carbs, and
lactose. However, it can be left with a very unpleasant,
bitter aftertaste. It’s very difficult to formulate and to work
with and to taste good. So, if you see hydrosolate, and many marketing
companies will market it as “Well, we have the whey protein hydrosolate,” and it sounds
fantastic, and it sounds impressive, however, you want to also make sure that you look at
the amount of artificial sweeteners and sugar or maltodextrin or other things that have
been added to help mask this very difficult bitter aftertaste that this form can leave
this whey protein in. So for these reasons, I am obviously leaning
towards the whey protein isolate side, which is the form that we chose to put in our FIT20
performance proteins. It’s microfilter, it removes the fats, carbs,
and lactose, and it’s 90% plus protein by weight, giving a very highly concentrated
form and also removing the lactose. You know, with over 60% of the population
being lactose intolerant, yes, you want to create a product that can be used by the masses. And I personally do not like dairy. My wife doesn’t like dairy, but we tolerate
using this really well. Now, technically this is still dairy because
it’s whey. Whey is basically a by-product of creating
cheese. It’s that liquid film on the top that you’ll
can often find in a yogurt container. If you flip that up, that’s typically whey. And they used to throw it away before they
realized that whey is very beneficial in terms of providing the essential amino acids that
our body needs to repair and recover and a high quality protein source. So for this reason, because of its high protein
by weight, lactose-free is the reason why that we chose to go with this because it can
be the most versatile and most widely accepted and used by the widest market today, taking
into consideration the lactose intolerance that many people experience. And we’ve seen it throughout the world, people
who have been using our products that are lactose intolerant but tolerate FIT20 performance
protein very well. And you’re going to also see there’s some
tremendous benefits to whey protein. So, let’s break those down. Now, like I mentioned, it does have a complete
amino acid profile. It provides the nine essential amino acids
that are required to be supplemented. You need to get them from your diet. Your body does not produce them. Now, in particular, it’s rich in leucine. And leucine is one of the three top essential
amino acids, the isoleucine and valine being the other two, that has been shown to help
preserve muscle tissue, to help…to maintain muscle tissue during dieting and weight loss
phases, and to promote muscle growth and protein synthesis is incredibly important amino acid. And so it provides you and very nice complete
amino acid profile. It helps us support the immune system and
weight loss, healthy blood pressure and vascular function. And as I mentioned, it’s easily digested,
has rapid absorption. It also enhances zinc absorption. One of the key minerals that many athletes
or people that are even just training and working out are deficient in your body, doesn’t
have a way to store it. It loses it very easily in sweat. And as a result, many people are deficient
in them. Muscle repair, recovery, and retention. It’s the purest form of protein. And which brings me to the big one that I
really want to focus on in today’s episode, which is glutathione production. Now, you might be asking yourself, “Why boost
glutathione? What is it and why does it matter?” Well, here are just some of the reasons why
you really want to consider boosting your glutathione production. It is known as the master antioxidant of the
body. It’s a pro-oxidant that actually helps to
regenerate other antioxidants, in particular regenerating vitamin C and E. And you know
we’ve talked a lot about vitamin C, E in here on “Kyäni Wellness TV” being a, it’s a key
ingredient in our water soluble antioxidant super food blend sunrise and, of course, our
tocotrienols, which I have an entire episode on here on “Kyäni Wellness TV,” because these
are powerful antioxidants that help squinch if you will, or squash free radicals, those
angry little Pac-Man that are a by-product of breathing and metabolism. It cause premature aging, degeneration linked
over 90 plus degenerative diseases. Yes, that is a mouthful. So, it’s very important to recycle these,
and these antioxidants are also very critical for collagen formation. So it’s very key that we need to preserve
them so that we can maintain healthy skin elasticity, joint health, gut health and so
forth. So, you can start to see how all of our products
are designed to work synergistically together. As a result, they support the immune system
as well. They’re critical for certain enzyme formation
and function. They also help to build your DNA, so not only
protecting your DNA from free radical damage, but they also help to build and support DNA,
formation of sperm cells, helping the liver and gallbladder deal with fat, assisting regular
cell breakdown, very important, and also transporting heavy metals out of the body, and particularly
arsenic. Glutathione is also a powerful detoxification
agent. So, if you are particularly low on glutathione
and you start supplementing with whey and start getting on a super food diet and a blend
with our triangle of health, you actually may start to have some symptoms of feeling
a little worse as we bring systems back online, cleansing and detoxifying, and then having
those dissipate and disappear as your body starts to rejuvenate and starts to become
healthier from within by giving the micro nutrients that it needs to boost these critical
micro nutrients. Now, I want to go over a couple of key studies
with you. Very important as it relates to whey protein
isolate and GSH, which is short for glutathione. Now, this is an out of “Toxicology in Vitro”
in February 2003. And one of the things I want to talk to you
about is that not only is it rich in leucine, but it’s also rich in cystine. And this is what makes whey such a key factor
in helping you to boost your glutathione levels. Because supplementing with just glutathione
in and of itself is actually poorly absorbed and poorly converted. It’s better to supplement, in my opinion,
with cofactors like inositol cystine or alpha lipoic acid together, or in a way protein
to help you boost those levels. You can also boost your glutathione by having
a sulfur-rich diet, you know, you have your organic meats, your pasture-raised chicken,
your grass-fed beef, your cruciferous vegetables like asparagus, bok choy, brussels sprouts,
as example. Getting enough sleep is really important. You want to make sure you limit your alcohol
intake because it’s toxic to the liver, and this is where glutathione production actually
occurs. And exercise, boosting glutathione is also
very important, requires ATP synthesis. So, when you exercise, you boost your mitochondrial
health, which actually boosts your ATP production. And when you boost your ATP production and
you have the right cofactors in place like cystine, you actually increase your natural
body’s ability to increase glutathione. So, very important that you really put all
of these things together. And this is a problem that I have in the bio
hacking language world. It’s not just one thing. It’s the sum of a lot of little things stacked
together that allow you to experience optimal health. And I really want that to be a take-home message
with this. Not only that, but whey protein is also rich
in immunoglobulins that help create the proper environment for GSH synthesis. So you can start to see how all of this comes
together. Now, as you see here, cystine is the rate-limiting
amino acid for the synthesis of ubiquitous antioxidant GSH. Now, bovine, which is the source that we chose
to go with for our whey protein, is rich in cystine, this disulfite form of amino acid
cystine. Now, the objective of this study was to determine
whether whey protein isolate could increase intracellular GSH concentration. Well, in short, they did. They were able to increase intracellular GSH
by 64% by using whey protein isolate. And as you can see here, they even had inositol
cystine donating a compound to help increase or elevate intracellular GSH. So, I want you to know that the science is
behind what we are actually saying and understanding why we at the scientific advisory board decided
to go with whey protein isolate. Also, this is out of general gastroenterology,
hepatology, excuse me. The results indicate that oral supplementation
assisting rich whey protein isolate leads to improvements in liver biochemistries, increased
plasma GSH, and total antioxidant capacity. There’s also been numerous studies that have
been done in the cancer field in helping to offset some of the negative effects of chemotherapy
in using whey protein to help for these many same reasons. Now again, I’m not saying by any stretch of
the imagination that taking FIT20 performance protein will cure your cancer. Absolutely not. I’m more or less highlighting the key components
in helping to boost your natural GSH levels to give your body every fighting chance, to
help you to experience optimal health. And of course, FIT20 is not just any ordinary
protein. It also replaces many other supplement needs
by other synergistic ingredients in citrulline malate, and citrulline, which helps to remove
excessive ammonia, essential nerve and structural proteins, nitric oxide production, helping
to alleviate muscle soreness or delay fatigue. So, FIT20 performance protein can be used
very well before workouts, about 30 to 45 minutes, and then also again after four recovery. And so that’s the way we’ve designed it to
be used. And if you combine it with some healthy carbohydrates
and healthy fat, you can turn it into a meal replacement as well. We added L-carnitine tartrate to reduce muscle
soreness in recovery, but also to assist in fat metabolism. L-carnitine tartrate actually helps to shuttle
the fatty acids into the mitochondria where they can go through their beta oxidation process,
kickoff those acetyl-CoAs, and help you to generate a very efficient source of ATP, which
is the energy molecule of the body. And then we also added magnesium, zinc, and
chromium for growth hormone, fat loss, immune support, helping to stabilize blood sugar
levels. As you can see, we added zinc and I told you
earlier that whey it actually helps to increase your zinc absorption. Most people are deficient in magnesium, and
we wanted to help stave off cravings and balance blood sugar levels as well. And then, of course, we’ve also added MCT
oil, so, to help boost metabolism, stabilize blood sugar, bump insulin, which is necessary. Insulin is not going to make you fat. A high calorie diet will make you fat. Go back and watch the episode on law of energy
balance if you want to understand why that is the case and for immune system function. And what I’ll be doing is I’ll breaking down
in more detail each of these other synergistic ingredients, how they work together with our
FIT20 performance protein to give you the results that you are looking for. Now, one of the thing that I really want to
make sure that I stress here about FIT20 is that it is 100% natural. It has zero sugars and zero artificial sweeteners. I know you have lots of choices when it comes
to the market today. You want to pay attention to fillers or flow
agents, binders, other ingredients, artificial sweeteners. Yes, that might be a cheaper protein, but
it’s the equivalent of, you know, basically, you know, maybe getting a, you know, how do
I say it? You’re not going to get…they’re not all
equal, let’s put it that way. I don’t want to offend any other brands or
companies. That’s why I’m struggling for a moment. So, I want you to understand what ours has
done in the lengths that we have done because I truly feel that we are the Ferrari, the
Lamborghini of performance proteins in the markets today. It’s 99% lactose-free, it’s non-GMO, it is
keto friendly, and it is also gluten free. Now, not only what’s it’s important, what’s
in it, but also what is not in it. There are no artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners,
fillers, binders, or flow agents. We’re not putting maltodextrin in there. We’re not going to add silicon dioxide, which
is a flow agent to it. We don’t have sucralose or aspartame or food
dye number 40 or number 60 or whatever stuff is that is in there. It is all naturally sourced and it is all
naturally flavored and, of course, it is certified by the highest levels of standards in the
supplement industry today, GMP, NSF, ISO. It’s also produced in a facility that is a
informed choice certified so it’s trusted by sports and for athletes, and in an FDA
audited facility, not to mention, we’re starting to hear rave reviews on how it helps to suppress
appetite, controlling cravings, improving fitness performance in the class, good energy,
no issues with digestion before and after workouts, improving strength, recovery. You can see these for yourself. And the point is, is that we have an entire
community call our Healthy Living Hub that for anyone that consumes any of our products
on a monthly basis, that you receive access to for free. What is that? Well, inside the Healthy Living Hub, we have
everything that you need from meal plans, workouts, nutrition, support, a private Facebook
group, accountability questions. I’m in there every single day answering questions,
providing ideas, training, support, to coach you on your healthy living journey and your
