"..Profect’s formulation is ideal to provide extra protein in a patient’s diet because it is enzymatically hydrolyzed, which reduces taxation on the kidneys," says Jim Duffy, Protica President.

Protica’s new protein shot, Profect® was designed with medical patients in mind, specifically patients dealing with kidney disease. Many kidney disease patients need to make several lifestyle changes, which include following a different type of diet. Profect was designed to fit into a specialized diet for kidney disease patients.

"In the early stages of kidney disease, lower protein intake is suggested. At this point of the disease, protein is limited so that the body does not have to work as hard to digest it. However, in the later stages of kidney disease, the need for protein will actually increase, giving the body the strength to fight back and strengthen the immune system to fight kidney disease. Profect’s formulation is ideal to provide extra protein in a patient’s diet because it is enzymatically hydrolyzed, which reduces taxation on the kidneys," says Jim Duffy, Protica President.

Chronic kidney disease is directly related to blood pressure. High blood pressure (medically known as hypertension) can cause Chronic Kidney Disease and Chronic Kidney Disease can cause hypertension. Profect can help those with high blood pressure by helping patients lose weight and exercise regularly. When taken before a meal, Profect’s high protein content can help a patient eat less and feel full longer. The protein in Profect can also help speed metabolism and burn calories more efficiently. For patients who are having trouble starting an exercise routine, the high protein content and 100 calories in Profect provides an energy boost that will help patients get through a tough workout.

Diet is a very important factor in a healthy lifestyle and can help a person prevent high blood pressure and lower their risk of kidney disease. Kidney experts suggest following a diet which is high in fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and other healthy foods but low in sodium and fats. Profect can be used as part of this specialized diet. Profect contains no fat and sodium and provides 25 grams of lean, complete protein per serving. Protica hopes that kidney disease patients will benefit from using Profect as part of their specialized diet.
