Studies show thatsoy increased muscle mass inOlympic athletes and that Marineshad less muscle soreness whenusing a combination of soy proteinand whey protein. may makeyou smarter.According to a new study, soybeanpeptides were responsible for anincrease in dopamine levels in thebrain.

  4. 4. our soy is isoflaVone-free and non-gmo.What is an Isoflavone?Isoflavones are organic compounds, similar to antioxidants, oftenfound naturally in common foods such as coffee, soybeans, evenpistachio nuts. Modern research shows that Isoflavones canactually deliver multiple health benefits. However, given popularmisunderstandings around this subject, ViSalus®chose to removeisoflavones from the soy protein used in our proprietary Tri-Sorb™protein blend.Is Vi-Shape®Isoflavone-Free or Reduced Isoflavones?Answer: BothIn the unregulated wellness industry, where much of thecompetition takes liberties with their claims, we choose to applythe strictest standards to our own labeling.Non-GMOAnother example of our highest standards is our selection ofnon-GMO soy protein, meaning it does not contain any geneticallymodified organisms.CompleteProteinDigestionRateAidsLeanBodyMassHighinLeucineHighinGlutamineHighinArginineAntioxidantActivitySoy ProteinIsolateIntermediateWhey Protein FastCombination Prolongedsoy supports Weight loss.Soy can increase satiety, improve insulin resistance and reducebody fat contributing to weight loss.Source: Manuel T.

However,product advertising guidelines are regulated by the FTC, whichallows the statement “isoflavone–free.” All legal jargon aside, wewill always go to the most extreme lengths to ensure the highestquality ingredients, manufacturing and labeling so what you readon the label is what you put into your body.©2013 ViSalus, Inc.

  7. 7. Sucralose is a safe and effective sugar substitute, making theproduct friendly for those watching their sugar intake, and approvedfor use in over 80 countries. We use a small amount of Sucralose(equal to about ¼ of a diet soda). It is not recognized as a sugar orcarbohydrate by the body and is produced in a multi-step processusing a component found naturally in foods such as lettuce andmushrooms. It is approved for use by the FDA. More than100 studies conducted over a 20-year period have demonstratedthe safety of sucralose as a sweetener.Source: American Dietetic Association 2006: Facts About Sucralose.Sucralose is an artificial sweetener that the American DiabetesAssociation recommends for use by those who need to watch theirsugar intake. Artificial sweeteners have no carbohydrates and do notincrease blood sugar levels. recent study shows that low-calorie sweeteners are helpful inlowering your risk for certain diseases as well as your weight. adults consume an average of 22 teaspoons a day, orabout 355 calories, from added sugars, claimed a spokeswomanfor the American Heart Association and a nutrition professor atthe University of Vermont. Every teaspoon has 15 to 16 calories.Nutritionists and health advocates have come out recently to urgeAmericans to cut back on their sugar consumption.Source: MSNBC, we use Sucralose.Here’s why.Nicole LyonsChallenge Champion 2012Lost 48 lbs. with Body by Vi™over her ChallengesStudies have shown that there is a strongcorrelation between people sufferingfrom type 2 diabetes and obesity. We kept thistop of mind while building our shake formula.Global Health Organizations, including theWorld Health Organization, support the safetyof Sucralose. In order to even approach whatstudies have confirmed to be the upper safelimits of Sucralose, an adult would have toconsume over 2,000 Vi-Shape®shakes per day.Many well known Brands also use Sucralose©2013 ViSalus, Inc.
