The use of SON Formula to combat the effects of aging

The Use of SON Formula® During Health and Disease

 

SON Formula® is a dietary protein substitute that provides the MAP Master Amino Acid Pattern® (U.S. Patent No. 5,132,113) a unique pattern of essential amino acids in a highly purified, free, crystalline form.

SON Formula® is indicated as a safe and effective substitute for dietary proteins.

Clinical studies have shown that SON FORMULA® can substitute dietary proteins or protein supplements in a safer and nutritionally more efficient way.

SON FORMULA®, due to its unique characteristics, is indicated in substitution of dietary proteins or protein supplements:

• To avoid the overloading of cardiovascular functions.

• To avoid the overloading of gastrointestinal functions.

• To avoid the overloading of the renal function.

• To avoid the overloading of the hepatic function.

Chart 1. Net Nitrogen Utilization (NNU) for Body Protein Synthesis (BPS)

SON FORMULA® provides a 99% Net Nitrogen Utilization or NNU. This means that 99% of SON FORMULA’s constituent amino acids act as precursors of BPS, to become body’s constituent proteins. By comparison, the most nutritious dietary proteins, such as meat, fish or poultry provide an average of 32% NNU. Consequently, only 32% of their constituent amino acids can act as precursors of BPS. Meanwhile, most protein supplements only provide an average of 16% NNU - because they use milk, soy, casein or whey as their primary protein source. As a result, only 16% of their constituent amino acids act as precursors of BPS. Therefore, dietary proteins provide a BPS that is at least 3 times lower, compared to SON FORMULA®. Meanwhile, protein supplements provide a BPS that is at least 6 times lower, compared to SON FORMULA®

Fig. 1. SON FORMULA® is absorbed in the small intestine within 23 minutes from its ingestion. By comparison, dietary proteins and protein supplements need from 3 to 6 hours to be digested. This is 6 to 12 times longer compared to SON FORMULA®.

Fig. 2. By knowing a protein’s NNU (%) and its digestion time (min), a protein BPS/min ratio can be calculated.

 

chart 2

Chart 2.  SON FORMULA® BPS/min is 99% NNU/23 min. By comparison the most nutritious dietary proteins have a BPS/min of 32% NNU/180-360 min. This means that the BPS/min of dietary proteins is 24 to 48 times lower compared to SON FORMULA®. Meanwhile, protein supplements have a BPS/min of 16% NNU/180-360 minutes. This means that the BPS/min ratio of protein supplements is 48 to 96 times lower compared to SON FORMULA®.

Chart 3. SON FORMULA® releases only 1% nitrogen catabolites, namely metabolic toxic waste. By comparison, dietary proteins and protein supplements release an average of 68-84% nitrogen catabolites. This is 68 to 84 times more metabolic toxic waste compared to SON FORMULA®.

 

SON FORMULA® provides only 0.4 Kcal/g.

In contrast with dietary proteins and protein supplements,
SON FORMULA® is:

100% Sodium free. Which may help to control sodium intake
100% Fat free. Which may help to control fat intake
100% Sugar free. Which may help to control sugar intake

 

SON FORMULA® does not produce any fecal residue.
And, SON FORMULA® is amphoteric.

Therefore, the use of SON FORMULA®, due to its unique characteristics, is indicated in substitution of dietary proteins or protein supplements, during:

Alcoholism

Dosage & Administration

SON FORMULA® should be orally administered, preferably with food. To calculate the dosage of SON FORMULA® necessary to substitute dietary proteins it should be considered that: 1 tablet of SON FORMULA® can safely and effectively substitute at least 3g of the most nutritious dietary protein or 6g of milk, soy, casein or whey protein – which are the main protein sources of protein supplements.
