10 Ways PermaLean Bars Can Improve Your Life
While we try to create healthy lives, committing to a natural, metabolism-boosting, nutritious eating plan can be a challenge. It’s a balancing act that takes practice on a daily basis. The key is establishing some consistently effective tools to help you nourish yourself and your family well—even during busy, stressful times. One such tool is the PermaLean protein bar. Why is it so valuable? We hope these 10 reasons give you food for thought:
Superbly Complete Protein
Your body needs protein every day to build and repair tissues, bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood, among other functions. Since you can’t store protein, your body depends on your daily intake to perform those vital roles. You need anywhere from .8 to 1.5 daily protein grams per pound of body weight, or more, depending on your activity level. Each PermaLean bar contains 21 grams of easily digested, well absorbed, complete protein from whey isolate, soy and milk sources.
Low-Carb, Low-Sugar Decadence
While it may taste like a candy bar, the PermaLean bar nourishes you beautifully without the sugar rush/crash scenario resulting from other treats—a vicious cycle that is slowly but surely fattening the greater American population. In fact, the PermaLean bar actually helps stabilize your blood sugar, due to the high-quality protein and minimal carbs and sugar it contains. Would you believe that this unique bar has only 3 net carbs, 2 grams of sugar, and a mere 190 calories?
They say good things come in small packages, and the PermaLean bar is no exception. This tasty gem contains an impressively broad spectrum of nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and E, biotin, phosphorus, folate, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, copper, manganese, iron and vitamins B-12, B-6, pantothenic acid (B-5) and rich levels of potassium to help balance dietary sodium.
Whey protein—featured in the PermaLean bar—helps curb hunger by promoting satiety, the feeling of being comfortably full. Whey protein appears to be superior to other protein sources in this respect. For example, studies comparing whey and casein on appetite and satiety-related hormones found that whey protein powder was most effective in promoting satisfaction and fullness resulting in reduced appetite and decreased food intake.1, 2
Work Out Booster
Do you hit the gym at least three times a week? Most Americans don’t, in part due to the vitality-sapping effects of processed/fast food, excessive caffeine and sugar, and meal skipping that can prevail in a typical work day. If this sounds familiar, take heart—such patterns can be changed. Imagine swapping that “quick fix” 4pm Snickers for a genuinely energizing PermaLean bar. Would you not be more likely to exercise later? If so, that same bar will go the distance for you, helping your body burn fat, sculpt muscle, and remain fueled during your entire workout.
How many times have you had one foot out the door—keys in hand—when your child said “I’m hungry?” If you’re like most busy parents, the response is “often.” So, do you dash by McDonalds before soccer practice? This pattern can also be changed. If you prefer to boost your children’s wellness and keep them happy too, PermaLean Bars are your ticket. How can you beat a kid-friendly snack that nourishes like a meal, energizing your child with 100% natural ingredients, no trans fats, preservatives, hydrogenated oils or artificial sweeteners—all with only 2 grams of sugar?
As so many Americans battle the muffin top, people need tools that support behavior change and help break vicious cycles like the blood sugar rise/crash syndrome—a primary culprit in weight gain. Enter PermaLean Bars, which help satisfy sweet cravings while safely stabilizing blood sugar levels. They’re also a perfect ally to prevent meal skipping—a self-defeating practice that depresses your metabolism and encourages fat storage. Keep a bar in your purse, car, desk, and gym bag and you’ll no longer be at the mercy of junk/fast food when you’re hungry on the go.
Can upgrading your diet with PermaLean Bars help prevent diabetes too? Yes, because whey protein increases insulin sensitivity, which is associated with better blood sugar control and reduced fat storage.3 One study found that while a high-fat diet promotes weight gain and metabolic complications linked to type 2 diabetes, introducing whey protein caused less weight gain and greater lean body mass, although calorie consumption was unchanged. Those fed whey protein also had higher metabolic rates and less insulin resistance, further reducing diabetes risk.4
Although whole food meals are ideal, they sometimes feel like an impossible luxury. Enjoy the grilled salmon, wild rice, and Caesar salad when you can, but if hectic days leave you with few options, the PermaLean bar is a superb meal alternative, ideal for work, travel, vacations—anytime a traditional meal eludes you. American Dietetic Association spokeswoman, Dawn Jackson, RD, noted that protein bars are convenient when you can’t have a turkey sandwich, but that many have as much sugar and saturated fat as candy. Agreed! Now, compare them with the PermaLean bar at only 3 net carbs, 2 grams of sugar, and a mere 190 calories.
Could the PermaLean bar boost immune health too? One study noted that whey protein not only provides nutrition, it can also prevent disease.5 In fact, whey protein demonstrates a wide range of immune-enhancing properties, including its ability to act as an antioxidant, help reduce blood pressure, even minimize tumor risk. The immune boosting feats whey performs are largely due to its ability to convert the amino acid cysteine to glutathione—a potent cellular antioxidant. In fact, many clinical trials have successfully used whey in treating cancer, HIV, hepatitis B, heart disease, and osteoporosis.6
