ManaWhey™ Probiotic Superfood
Protein Absorption AND What ManaWhey™ can do for YOU!
Gastrointestinal transit time for viscous liquids, during which nutrient absorption can occur, is reported to be 1.5 hours. Protein powders and shakes frequently contain between 15 and 50 g of protein per serving. An hour and a half is not a long time for the body to absorb all the protein from one serving, especially if you factor in the rate at which the body can absorb protein. A review on the rate of protein absorption published in 2006 in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, reported that whey protein isolate absorbs at a rate of about 8g/hour.
Window of Opportunity
This means if one serving of whey protein isolate is 25g with an absorption rate of 8g/hour and it has a 1.5 hour window to absorb it, only 12g of protein would get absorbed.
No matter how “digestible” the protein is, its absorption is still limited by Gastrointestinal Transit Time. In fact, the faster the GTT, the less time your body has to absorb nutrients.
This is why we have added our EPA Tri- Complex System of enzymes, probiotics and AstraGin™. You have approximately a 1.5 hour window opportunity to absorb as much of your high protein meal, snack, or drink as possible.

“Less is More” with ManaWhey™
With ManaWhey™ you’re absorbing nearly all 15 grams
“One of the biggest myths there may be about digestion is that everything that you eat will be absorbed. The fact is that the body’s ability to absorb the foods, beverages and supplements that we take depends on our age, the quality of the product, what other products are taken with it, gastrointestinal transit time and so on. In order to benefit from the foods and nutrients we take in, we must break them down properly during digestion and absorb them.”
ManaWhey’s EPA Tri-Complex enhances the absorption of our protein.
Digestive Health is the key to Quality Protein Absorption
As live, health-promoting bacteria, probiotics act in the small intestine, where many of the nutrients from food are absorbed. Their activity helps to offset the presence of ‘bad’ and infectious bacteria. By keeping the microecology of the gastrointestinal tract in balance, probiotic bacteria help to create an environment more conducive to proper nutrient absorption.
Prebiotics – Prebiotics are like “food” for healthy bacteria. Since the probiotics you can take orally do not usually travel all the way to the large intestine, another way to cultivate healthy bacteria in this area is needed. This is where prebiotics come into play. When eaten, prebiotic carbohydrates like fibers like inulin cannot be digested. They travel all the way through the gastrointestinal tract until they reach the large intestine. There, they become “food” for the healthy bacteria that already live there, and help them to grow. Healthy bacteria help to keep the digestion process in check, interacting with the byproducts of the decomposed food so that they do not overwhelm the digestive system and wreak havoc on the ecology of the gastrointestinal tract.
Synbiotics – A combination of prebiotics and probiotics is known as a synbiotic. Together, they help to keep your gastrointestinal environment balanced and ready for nutrient absorption.
Digestive Enzymes – If prebiotics and probiotics set the stage for healthy digestion, digestive enzymes take a leading role. Digestive enzymes are needed to break down specific kinds of foods into smaller parts so that your body can absorb and use them. ManaWhey™ contains a blend of proteases and lactase, the kind of enzymes that break down protein.
The correct enzyme system enhances the digestion of many different kinds of protein, including whey.
ManaWhey’s™ enzyme system helps to break down protein and make protein digestion more efficient.
AstraGin™ – A 100% natural compound that transports significantly greater amounts of nutrients in the blood stream into the cells for truly improved bioavailability maximizes the absorption of the amino acids in our ManaWhey™ native non-denatured protein superfood formula.
