“All twenty amino acids in optimal balance and all eight essential amino acids in the right concentration”
A balance of natural ingredients.
The NGC macronutrients provide the body with essential building blocks, needed for the continuous maintenance of organs and tissues, cell function etc around the clock. High quality nutrition, as in NGC, protects the body from many diseases closely associated with nutrition.
Yes, we only use natural ingredients and flavours.
The NGC™ Ingredient contains no added sugar. The sugar and carbohydrates in the blend derives from the natural ingredients (apple, rosehip, sugar beet fibre).
Fatty acids that are required by the human body but cannot be made in sufficient quantity from other substrates, and therefore must be obtained from food, are called essential fatty acids. NGC™ Preload contains the two important essential fatty acids, Omega-3 and 6, both polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). These contain linoleic acid (LA) and alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), widely distributed in plant oils. The human body has a limited ability to convert ALA into the longer-chain n-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which also can be obtained from fish. The balance between Omega 3 and 6 is vital for health; the ratio in NGC™ is 1:2, which is the recommended level to stay healthy.
NGC™ contains carbohydrates that are slowly digested. Carbohydrates are divided into slow (complex) and fast (simple). Slow carbohydrates take longer to break down, such as fibre-rich vegetables and beans, while white sugar and white flour are almost instantly made available to the body as blood sugar. Foods with fibres and complex carbohydrates have a low GI.
NGC™ has three different sources of protein: eggs, peas and whey (from milk). Protein forms the body’s building blocks and is largely found in meat, fish, poultry, eggs, milk and soy products, beans and lentils. Peas and protein from peas are sometimes called “the meat of the vegetable kingdom”, thanks to their rich and beneficial amino acid composition. Peas are particularly rich in lysine and arginine amino acids. Whey protein is a rich protein source including all of the essential amino acids needed in a daily diet, and is biologically one of the most potent proteins. Whey protein contains a high level of leucine, which promotes the synthesis of muscle protein and muscle growth. The egg is naturally full of nutritional value thanks to its high protein content with essential amino acids, lipids, minerals and vitamins. NGC™ ´s amino acids are essential for life. NGC™ products provide a high content of essential amino acids, important to get on a daily basis since the body is unable to produce these amino acids.
NGC™ contains carefully selected ingredients:, Proteins from whey (milk), egg and peas, , It has carbohydrates from apples and rosehips, fibre from sugar beet and Omega-3 eggs (hens that have been eating special vegetarian food rich in linseeds for at least three months, which renders the exact balance between the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.). All ingredients are natural and have been combined to provide a health promoting balance of protein, fat and carbohydrates from high quality sources, also with a natural content of vitamins, minerals and trace elements. The three sources of protein cover approximately 1/3 of the body’s need for essential amino acids (NGC has a high amino acid score according to WHO criteria) which is important in building and maintaining muscle mass. The omega-3 and 6 fatty acids ratio is within the recommended ratio 1:2-4. Rosehip and apple are naturally rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C which is an important antioxidant. NGC™ contains both water-soluble fibre and water-insoluble fibre.
