Almased - more than just weight loss!

Written by Kevin, Nutritionist (M.Sc. Medical Science)

A new study shows how diverse the effects of our shakes really are!

In October 2022, the University of Freiburg published a new scientific article on Almased, which compiles the many exciting clinical results on the product itself. It's traditional recipe of soya, yogurt and honey not only affects body composition, but also our immune system, our metabolism and important, healthy blood markers.

For clarity purposes, we have summarized the results for you here:

Protein – Not just for athletes

For those who didn't know: Almased contains 80 different bioactive peptides! These are small protein elements, each consisting of only a few amino acids and because of their simple structure, can be easily absorbed by the body. One Almased shake provides you with enough essential amino acids for the entire day.

And that's not all! The many peptides produced as a result of our unique manufacturing process have a beneficial effect on blood pressure as well as fat and cholesterol levels within the blood. Results have also shown that the biologically active protein building blocks appear to have an antioxidant effect.

Iso- what?

Isoflavones! These are the bioactive components of the soyabean (the parts of the soyabean that can actively interact with our body's metabolism), the effects of which have already been examined in numerous clinical studies. For example, they affect fat and carbohydrate metabolism, thus helping you to lose weight. In addition, they appear to support a healthy insulin response in the body – an effect that is particularly beneficial for those with reduced insulin sensitivity such as type 2 diabetes or prediabetes.

Since soya is one of the main ingredients in Almased, by consuming one shake per day you are already providing yourself with enough isoflavones to benefit you and your health!

Honey, honey, ...

The health promoting benefits of consuming honey has been known for thousands of years. Important carbohydrates such as fructooligosaccharides (complex multiple fructoses) in our honey, which, in contrast to table sugar, act as a nutrient for healthy bacteria in our intestines and have an influence on our microbiome and intestinal health.

Together with so-called secondary plant substances such as polyphenols and flavonoids, this results in positive antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and hypotensive effects. For example, regular consumption of honey can have a beneficial effect on obesity and type 2 diabetes by strengthening the microbiome and can exhibit a positive influence on carbohydrate and fat metabolism.

The good thing about Almased is that we process our honey in an active, liquid state. This creates a unique recipe with all the health-promoting properties retained in each shake.

The messenger substances of our body not only influence our mood ...

... but also our eating habits!

The regulation of hunger and satiety is carried out by specific substances that signal to the body when energy is required or the stomach is full. However, prolonged poor diet and malnutrition can throw it off balance.

The good news: Scientists from Germany have investigated the influence of Almased on appetite regulation. After consuming a shake, a specific satiety hormone is released, while at the same time, a lower level of appetite-stimulating hormones are observed. We can therefore conclude, that Almased leads to a long-lasting and greater feeling of satiety than other same calorie meals.

Almased also makes sense in the long term

Studies conducted on Almased show that the majority of consumers prefer to continue eating a high-protein diet long after they have engaged in an Almased diet and pay close attention when selecting high-quality carbohydrate sources. Almased is therefore a great introduction to a long-term sustainable change to your diet!
