Energy is expressed in kilojoules and a nutrient’s energy value relates to its value to the body as fuel.2

Fats are the most ENERGY dense macronutrient, followed by protein and then carbohydrates.2

Proteins are a much slower and longer lasting source of energy than carbohydrates.3 Fats are the slowest source of energy but by far the most energy-efficient macronutrient.3

A key benefit of a high in protein, low carbohydrate approach is that it restricts refined carbohydrates.1

Refined carbohydrates can give you a sugar jolt because they have a high GI which means that they raise sugar levels in the blood more quickly. Blood sugar levels from high GI foods also disappear faster.1

Refined, high GI carbohydrates include processed ingredients like corn starch, sucrose, and maltodextrin to name a few. 4,5,6

LIFEGAIN® is a high protein nutritional supplement. According to research, for a product to qualify as a high protein nutritional supplement, more than 20 % of its ENERGY must come from protein and not from carbohydrates.11

70% of the carbohydrates in LIFEGAIN® are contributed by Soy supreme which is a certified organic, non-GMO soy made with natural processes.

LIFEGAIN® is refined carbohydrate free!
