Futricio is available in various flavours. All Futricio recipes correspond to an optimal nutritional value and composition. Our shakes contain whey proteins from cow milk.
Oats are very nutritious and contain many fibers and proteins. They provide long-lasting energy and a saturated feeling. Oats contain zinc, magnesium, iron, antioxidants and soluble fibers such as beta-glucans. Beta-glucans support lower blood cholesterol ratios. This positive effect is achieved by consuming 3 grams of oat beta-glucans daily. Athletes will be pleased to know that oats improve fat-burning and promote muscle mass.
Fibers are included in the category of carbohydrates, but have a limited energy value. Fibers have many health benefits:
- They ensure that carbohydrates are absorbed less quickly in your blood, which makes the blood sugar level rise less rapidly.
- They give a saturated feeling.
- They have a positive effect on your cholesterol.
- They are easily digested and good for your intestinal flora.
Maltodextrin is a super carbohydrate from corn and is not sweet. It is absorbed very quickly into your body and gives energy to your muscles instantly, but it does not give a huge insulin peak like sugar. Carbohydrates are essential for combustion and for the proper functioning of the brain. People with an active lifestyle need extra carbohydrates for extra energy. Futricio contains oats and maltodextrin for an optimal carbohydrate ratio.
For optimal absorption, the body needs liquids to store the carbohydrates as energy (glycogen) in your muscles.
Futricio is slightly sweetened with Stevia and sucralose. No sugars added!
Proteins contain essential amino acids. Proteins are necessary for a healthy and strong body. These are the most important building materials for muscle building and repair. In addition, protein suppresses the hormone insulin and inhibits hunger sensation. Proteins are the basis for a good metabolism and they have a beneficial effect on various hormones. Protein stimulates the production of glucagon, the hormone that supports body fat burning and converts into new energy. Glucagon also causes release of sugar into the blood when your body needs it.
Whey protein comes from cow's milk and is rich in high quality proteins with a full amino acid profile and good bioavailability, which makes the proteins quickly and easily absorbed by our body.
Flaxseed is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids in the form of omega 3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are important and contribute to a healthy heart and healthy blood vessels, the immune system and normal functioning of our brain. Omega 3 supports fat metabolism.
Vitamins and minerals
Vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) do not contain energy (calories), but they are essential to all processes in our body. They control digestion and burning and they regulate the production of hormones, such as insulin. They make sure that you can concentrate and focus. In addition, they are needed for building up bones and body protein, the proper functioning of muscles and brain and they play a key role in the immune function.
When you’re active, you burn a lot of energy and free radicals are released. Antioxidants are vitamins that provide a quick discharge of the free radicals from your body.
