13 Main Ingredients
Soy protein isolate is obtained through the use of advanced technology to remove soybean oil and water-soluble non-protein components of dehulled soybeans. The protein content of soy protein isolate is as high as 90%. It is contains nearly 20 types of amino acids, of which nine are essential amino acids. Soy protein isolate is established as a high-quality plant protein with a high utilisation rate upon entering the human body. It is especially suitable for people with poor health, postoperative recovery, the elderly, infants and young children.
Pea protein is the least allergic protein among all protein powder products, as it does not contain gluten, soy or dairy. Pea protein is a complete protein that contains all nine essential amino acids that your body cannot create and must get from food. It is rich in iron, which is essential for blood production and oxygen transportation. It also contains dietary fibre, which increases satiety, promotes intestinal peristalsis, and improves bowel function.
YGF-251 is a patented natural plant extract that can stimulate growth hormones such as IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1) to increase bone length and density, and help growing children reach their potential height. Studies have shown that YGF-251 can stimulate six times the secretion of growth hormones compared to the control group.
According to WHO recommendations, the daily calcium intake for an average adult aged 19-55 yearsold) is 1000 mg. One study shows that the lowest calcium intake was found in Asia, with Malaysians consuming an average of 399 mg/day*. Calcium deficiency can cause retarded growth in children, dental problems, cataracts, brittle bones and nails. LIPOCALTM has a high calcium concentration, and its bioavailability is 41% higher than that of tricalcium phosphate and 15% higher than milk calcium. It can help to combat osteoporosis after menopause, as well as help children develop strong, healthy bones.

6. Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs)
Three kinds of amino acids. Isoleucine induces the uptake of glucose into cells, leucine promotes muscle protein synthesis, and valine promotes muscle growth and repair. Benefits: Increase protein synthesis rate, reduce protein breakdown, reduce fatigue, and reduce muscle soreness.
Extracted from chicory, inulin is a water-soluble fibre that is not absorbed by the human digestive tract and can relieve constipation. It is a prebiotic that can promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines, enhance the immune system and improve nutrient absorption. Due to its ability to swell up after absorbing water, inulin can increase satiety and control food intake.
Known as the “Mother of Food”, quinoa has been cultivated since 5,000 to 7,000 years ago. It is described as a superfood and listed as one of the top 10 nutritious foods in the world. Its protein content is higher than most grains, and it is a complete protein containing 8 kinds of amino acids essential for the human body, making it an excellent choice for vegetarians. In addition, quinoa has higher dietary fibre than typical grains and contains unsaturated fatty acids, which is good for heart health.
9. Brown Rice
Brown rice is a whole grain rice with the inedible outer hull removed. It consists of the outer layers of pericarp, seed-coat and nucellus; the germ or embryo; and the endosperm. It has high nutritional value and is rich in protein, dietary fibre, B vitamins, vitamin E, minerals and fatty acids. It can help to control blood sugar, improve insulin sensitivity, counteract oxidation, promote intestinal peristalsis and reduce the risk of cancer.
Japanese people have been consuming konjac daily as health food for over 1500 years. Konjac consists mainly of glucomannan, a zero-calorie dietary fibre. It also contains various vitamins, proteins, lipids, fatty acids and minerals. It can help to control blood sugar levels, reduce low-density lipoprotein (bad cholesterol), regulate the gastrointestinal tract, and aid in weight loss.
11. Cacao Powder
12. Vanilla Powder
Vanilla powder is made from freshly dried Vanilla fruits. It has a pleasant aroma and helps to lift and enhance the chocolate flavour of Bevité. It also acts as a natural sweetener.
Sucralose is a non-caloric sweetener that can be used to lower one’s intake of added sugars while still providing satisfaction from enjoying the taste of sweetness. Extensive research shows that sucralose does not raise blood glucose levels or affect blood glucose management. Substituting regular-calorie sweeteners with low-calorie options may lead to modest weight loss. Leading global health authorities such as the United State Food and Drug Authority (FDA), European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) have concluded that sucralose is safe to be used as a general-purpose sweetener.
