How can Unicity’s new LC products (LC Ascent, LC Magna, and LC SNAP) count as a meal replacements when they have less protein than the 20 grams per serving found in Unicity Complete?
By focusing exclusively on the protein in a meal replacement, we forget all the other elements that can make up a meal—fats, complex carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, and secondary metabolites (e.g., catechins, polyphenols, and chlorogenic acids). A healthy meal can consist of adequate amounts of two, three, four, or five of these different components.
For example, the products below are not considered full meal replacements based on the protein content alone. Instead, they contain good amounts of other elements as well.
Unicity Complete = protein + primary metabolites
LC Ascent = protein + healthy fat + primary metabolites + secondary metabolites (catechins in Matcha green tea and cordycepin in cordyceps militaris)
LC Magna = protein + healthy fat + primary metabolites + secondary metabolites (phytosterols, curcubitins, and other compounds from pumpkin)
LC SNAP = protein + healthy fat + complex carbohydrates (as dietary fiber, 12–15 grams/serving)
Depending on your current need state, you can choose which meal replacement will work best to meet your specific needs. In some cases, you may even choose to double up or alternate between meal replacements in order to get all the benefits you are looking for.
