Soy Health Benefits
SOY IMPROVES MUSCLE AND PERFORMANCE.
For example, Olympic athletes and Marines agree that soy is a protein that is effective for overall performance. Studies show that soy increased muscle mass in Olympic athletes and that Marines had less muscle soreness when using a combination of soy protein and whey.
According to a new study, soybean peptides were responsible for an increase in dopamine levels in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical produced by the brain that influences your ability to learn.

Studies show that populations in Asia that consume higher amounts of soy are healthier than others.

Soy Health Benefits and Weight Loss
Soy can increase satiety, improve insulin resistance and reduce body fat contributing to weight loss.

OUR SOY IS ISOFLAVONE-FREE AND NON-GMO.
What is an Isoflavone?
Isoflavone’s are organic compounds, similar to antioxidants, often found naturally in common foods such as coffee, soybeans, even pistachio nuts. Modern research shows that Isoflavones can actually deliver multiple health benefits. However, given popular misunderstandings around this subject, ViSalus chose to remove isoflavones from the soy protein used in our Proprietary Tri-Sorb Formula.
Is Vi-Shape Isoflavone-Free or Reduced Isoflavones?
In the unregulated wellness industry, where much of the competition takes liberties with their claims, we choose to apply the strictest standards to our own labeling.
Product packaging guidelines are regulated by the FDA, which prefers the statement that Vi-Shape has been “processed to reduce isoflavones” due to the fact that there can be trace amounts of isoflavones that naturally occur in any ingredients. However, product literature guidelines are regulated by the FTC, which allows the statement “isoflavone free.” All legal jargon aside, we will always go to the most extreme lengths to ensure the highest quality ingredients, manufacturing and labeling so what you read on the label is what you put into your body.
Another example of our highest standards is our selection of non-GMO soy protein, meaning it does not contain any genetically modified organisms.
SOY COMBINED WITH WHEY AMPLIFIES RESULTS.
New research shows that soy, used in combination with a dairy protein such as whey, demonstrates prolonged delivery of amino acids to muscles and extended muscle protein synthesis when subjects consumed the blend, compared to a single source of protein alone.
