Does Protein Help You Lose Weight?

Weight Loss process

Pea protein, such as used in the Nature Zen Smoothie & Cooking formula and Nature Zen organic protein bars, has been proven in clinical studies to induce thermogenesis – i.e. it increases our metabolism and so, we burn calories even while at rest! 1

The satiety effect

• Thanks to its very nature (a chain of amino acid), Quality+ protein leads to a deeper, more long-lasting feeling of satiety, and more stabilized energy than carbohydrates or lipids – which are, nevertheless, essential for a healthy and varied diet. For instance, studies demonstrate that a Quality+ protein breakfast favors a lower calorie intake throughout the day1

• Pea protein is proved to have beneficial effects on increasing the feeling of satiety:

aside from its fibre content, it contains phytonutrients, which increase the secretion of leptin

• Nature Zen bars are an excellent source of dietary fibres (more than 40% of the recommended daily intake per bar) and are also a key ally in maintaining healthy, long-lasting satiety
