BodyWell Nutrition Introduces the First Protein Product for Women Only - Tight Curves

For decades, the fitness industry has offered men and women drastically different approaches to healthy living. While men focus on ‘bulking up’ through muscle gain, women are encouraged to ‘slim down’ with long and lean muscles. Each gender has specific programs, plans and routines to follow in order to attain the ideal picture of physical fitness.

Unfortunately, one area where many women are not catered to in the fitness industry is fitness nutrition. Instead of focusing on healthy living, women are barraged by ads claiming to drastically reduce fat and body weight, something which is never perceived as healthy. When women do attempt to incorporate healthy nutrition plans, they often are encouraged to add more protein, often in the form of drinkable shakes, to their diets. The alarming reality reveals that women often grab whatever is put in front of them at their local health store - not a product specifically tailored to their needs.

According to Kristal Richardson, certified fitness trainer, “women and men differ drastically in their protein needs, and accordingly, women who share protein supplements with the men in their lives are often placed at a disadvantage - typical protein shakes can cause weight gain, bloating, and taste like chalk!” Luckily, BodyWell Nutrition, the leader in health and lifestyle supplements is introducing Tight Curves, the first protein product exclusive for women.

What is Tight Curves?
Tight Curves is the first and only multipurpose HeartHealthy protein product for women delivering 14 grams of high quality protein, with only 4 grams of carbs. It also includes specific ingredients that support bone health, a concern of women susceptible to osteoporosis, mood management, a concern of women dealing with hormonal changes. Daily incorporation of Tight Curves into a healthy diet promotes toned muscles, enhanced fat oxidation regulated moods, increased endurance, and decreased recovery time from exercise or other activity.

Why Do Women Need Their Own Protein Product?
While experts agree that all healthy and active people need protein, there is a distinct difference between the type of protein meant for a man and woman’s body. Women need protein to maintain and tone muscles, and increase endurance. Tight Curves is a HeartHealthy protein powered by soy protein isolates, and PeptoPro, a scientifically developed protein that does not carry the digestive issues often associated with whey protein.

“The presence of PeptoPro in Tight Curves helps to enhance exercise recovery as compared to other common sports drinks,” says Kristal, “it also reduces muscle soreness and post-exercise pain - something every woman needs after a long, grueling workout.”

Most women experience issues with typical whey protein products such as bloating, gas, and diarrhea, all of which can be deterrents when trying to live a healthy and active lifestyle. Tight Curves protein has proven to be the best choice for women looking to incorporate protein into their diets due to its ability to support bone mineral density and increase firm muscles while losing unwanted body fat.

Benefits of Using Tight Curves
Each of the key ingredients in Tight Curves were chosen based on peer-reviewed, published data which demonstrated that with daily use the key ingredients aid in bone density, maintaining normal cholesterol levels, enhances fat oxidation, mood and blood glucose support. “According to published studies on soy protein and exercise, it was found that obese people who had diets high in soy protein and low in fat saw improved body composition - they lost fat while preserving muscle mass,” says Kristal, “with women, it is vital that exercise and diet go hand in hand - it often can turn into an adverse situation if a women loses too much muscle from her diet.”

Protein-Infused Recipes by Kristal Richardson
“The daily recommended amount of protein for women over 18 is between 46 and 50 grams of protein,” says Kristal, “this recommendation changes with added exercise - so it’s vital that women incorporate a healthy amount of protein into their diet to maintain their muscle mass and weight.” One of the common complaints women have when trying to achieve the recommended value for protein is a lack of variety and choices. However, according to Kristal, adding Tight Curves to your daily healthy diet does not mean it always has to come in the form of a shake. Through Kristal’s extensive fitness career she has amassed tasty recipes that help keep your diet interesting.
