The Role Of Amino Acids And Protein In Building Muscle Mass

Protein powders and protein shakes have been on the market for a while now and have gained a steady following from people wanting to build muscle or lose weight. If you’re wondering why they’re talked about so often or if it’s the best option for you, we aim to answer some of those questions.

Remember that protein is needed for many of your body’s everyday functions, and proteins are not exclusively used for building muscle. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, so amino acids and protein go hand-in-hand. There are 9 essential amino acids that the human body cannot produce, so these must come from your diet. Three of them, leucine, isoleucine, and valine, help you to maintain muscle. These are called BCAAs or Branched Chain Amino Acids.

DO I NEED A PROTEIN POWDER SUPPLEMENT?

BCAAs can be found in protein-rich foods such as eggs, meat and dairy products, or whey protein shakes, and according to experts, consuming sufficient amounts daily in natural foods should be enough for building muscle mass. However, modern life is demanding, and we can often not take in our daily required nutritional servings of a balanced diet in every meal. In this case, a biopharma amino acid or protein supplement is an excellent solution. Whether you choose to get your amino acids protein purely from your diet or a supplement, you mustn’t allow your body to become deficient in protein, especially if you want to build muscle mass. Here are some benefits of BCAAs:

  • Build muscle mass
  • Reduce muscle fatigue and exercise fatigue
  • Minimize muscle damage
  • Improve exercise performance
  • Prevent muscle wasting
  • Improve liver function

BIOPHARMA CHOICES FOR BUILDING MUSCLE

For those wanting to maintain a natural lifestyle but struggle to get all their nutrients from food alone, Sunshine Biopharma Nutrition offers chemical-free dietary supplements for optimum health and muscle building. For example, our BCAA 2:1:1 180 Capsule helps develop muscle mass when combined with regular training. We also have the ISO Whey 100%, made from the finest Whey protein and enriched with amino acids. For advanced formulas that boost your amino acids and protein intake, contact Sunshine Biopharma Nutrition.

Are You Getting Your 9 Essential Amino Acids?

We’ve all heard of amino acids, the building blocks of protein. But why exactly do we need them in our diets? The human body needs 20 different amino acids for optimum growth and healthy functioning. However, only nine of them are classified as essential because our bodies cannot produce them, and they must come from dietary sources. 

These are the 9 essential amino acids: leucine, histidine, lysine, methionine, isoleucine, phenylalanine, valine, tryptophan, and threonine. Each one provides a different function to assist the biological processes in our bodies, such as muscle growth and regeneration, immune function, regulating appetite and sleep, regulating blood sugar, energy, detoxification, and absorption of certain minerals.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T GET ALL 9 ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS?

Contrary to popular belief, the 9 amino acids mentioned above do more than just build protein in our bodies. They influence our overall wellness and should be consumed in sufficient proportions from our daily food intake for healthy cells, muscles and tissue. 

A deficiency in one or more of the 9 essential amino acids can lead to general ill-health and loss of muscle mass, fatigue, unwanted weight gain, and a weak immune system. To avoid this, complete proteins should be consumed, as these contain all 9 amino acids. These are tofu, soy, meat, seafood, eggs, dairy, poultry and buckwheat. 

A SUPPLEMENT THAT TAKES CARE OF YOUR BODY

Unfortunately, some people may find it challenging to include complete proteins in their meals due to various reasons such as allergy, lactose intolerance or scarce availability of certain foods in unprocessed forms. When this happens, a supplement becomes necessary to replace those 9 essential amino acids that may be missing from your diet. 

Sunshine Biopharma’s Essential 9™ provides all 9 essential amino acids in a form that is ready for absorption and in the proportions recommended by Health Canada. Essential 9™ contains the exact constituents of the scientifically proven set of essential amino acids. Essential 9™ is vegan friendly and suitable for everyone, including athletes, seniors, dieters and anyone wishing to increase their health! Find Essential 9 here and give your body the correct dose of its 9 essential amino acids.

About Sunshine Biopharma
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the causative agent of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has claimed the lives of over 5 million people worldwide since it first appeared in December 2019. There are currently no drugs that can effectively arrest the replication of the virus in people who have contracted the illness. Sunshine Biopharma has completed the synthesis of four potential inhibitors of PLpro and subsequently identified a lead compound, SBFM-PL4. On February 1, 2021, Sunshine Biopharma entered into an exclusive license agreement with the University of Georgia for two Anti-Coronavirus compounds which the University of Georgia had previously developed and patented. The Company is currently advancing the development of these two compounds in parallel with its own SBFM-PL4 by conducting a transgenic mice study in collaboration with the University of Georgia, College of Pharmacy. The mice being used in the study have been genetically engineered to express the human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (hACE2) transmembrane protein in their lungs making them susceptible to lethal infection by SARS-CoV-2. The SARS-CoV-2 virus uses the hACE2 receptor to gain entry into human cells to replicate. The goal of the study is to determine if these protease inhibitors will protect the hACE2-transgenic mice from disease progression and death following infection with SARS-CoV-2. Should these mice studies prove successful, Sunshine Biopharma plans to submit the results to the FDA for authorization to conduct testing on actual COVID-19 patient volunteers in a Phase I clinical trial setting.
In addition, to working on the development of a treatment for COVID-19, Sunshine Biopharma is engaged in the development of Adva-27a, a unique anticancer compound. Tests conducted to date have demonstrated the effectiveness of Adva-27a at destroying Multidrug Resistant Cancer Cells, including Pancreatic Cancer cells, Small-Cell Lung Cancer cells, Breast Cancer cells, and Uterine Sarcoma cells. Clinical trials for Pancreatic Cancer indication are planned to be conducted at McGill University’s Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, Canada. Sunshine Biopharma is the owner of all patents and intellectual property pertaining to Adva-27a.

Why Science-Based Nutrition Works

From muscle building to vitamin intake to weight loss, science-based nutritional supplements are becoming increasingly popular for their effectiveness and trustworthiness. Knowing that these products are backed by science and thoroughly researched, consumers are becoming more confident in putting their faith in them to produce the results the labels promise. But why does science-based nutrition work when food fails us? Let’s take a closer look.

REAL FOOD IS GREAT – BUT NOT ALWAYS ENOUGH

Eating a balanced diet is a must for good health. We can get most of the nutrients we need from whole, unprocessed foods to live an energized life and support our immune systems. The problem comes when we tend to eat more processed foods, convenience foods or non-organic products with unknown substances that can be harmful. For example, we may consume a lot of fish to get our required intake of Omega fats but increase cholesterol and get exposed to high levels of mercury. We may eat meat for protein, but this also comes with unhealthy doses of cholesterol. We can even get fibre from store-bought granola, but it will be full of unrefined sugars.

Unfortunately, the cost is also a factor, as organic, whole foods often cost more, and processed sugary alternatives are cheaper. So while many of us may be following a disciplined diet, it’s not always possible to get enough amino acids, vitamins and minerals from our food alone.

HOW SCIENCE-BASED NUTRITION CAN HELP

You may have noticed that you’re trying to build muscle or lose weight on a natural diet, but the results are slow. This is because you’re not getting the targeted nutrients you need for your specific body type or individual needs. For example, you may be getting enough calcium in your diet, but is your body absorbing it correctly? A supplement that combines calcium, Vitamin D, and magnesium will aid in better absorption, boost your bone and muscle health, and regulate insulin levels and cardiovascular function. Similarly, a deficient diet in amino acids can lead to fatigue, weight gain or a weakened immune system. Again, this is because your body does not produce amino acids, and it’s not always possible to get them from food.

A scientifically researched, tested, and proven-to-work product can give you just the proper supplementary intake you need for optimum functioning. The great thing about biopharma, as opposed to synthetic pharmaceuticals, is that they provide a targeted nutritional boost with no side effects.

OUR PRODUCTS ARE BACKED BY SCIENCE AND SAFE TO USE

Whether you want to boost your immune system, build muscle or lose weight safely and effectively, Sunshine Biopharma Nutrition has the solution. We stock a wide range of science-based nutritional products continuously developing to give you the best results. For a healthy dietary supplement, contact us here or call 514-426-6161.

Sunshine Biopharma Files a Patent Application Covering mRNA Molecules for Treatment of Neurodegenerative Diseases

For Immediate Release October 6, 2021

Montreal, Quebec, Canada – (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Sunshine Biopharma Inc. (OTC PINK: “SBFM”), a pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of oncology and antiviral drugs, today announced that it has filed a  patent application for a potential new treatment for neurodegenerative disorders.  Sunshine Biopharma’s patent application contains experimental results showing that certain mRNA molecules provide protective effects against oxidative stress in differentiated neuronal cells, a process that mimics neuronal degeneration. This new patent application has a priority date of October 1, 2021. 

Neurodegeneration refers to the progressive loss of neuronal function, which may ultimately result in cell death. Neurodegenerative diseases include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and  Huntington’s disease. Neurodegeneration can occur in the brain as well as in the peripheral nervous system. At present, there is no known way to reverse the progressive degeneration of neurons and as such these diseases are considered to be incurable. 

Recent biochemical studies have revealed many underlying similarities among these diseases at the sub-cellular level. These similarities suggest that a given therapeutic approach for one neurodegenerative disease might ameliorate other diseases in the class. 

Neurodegenerative diseases affect millions of people worldwide. Alzheimer’s disease and  Parkinson’s disease are the most common neurodegenerative diseases. According to the  CDC, as many as 5.8 million Americans were living with Alzheimer’s disease in 2020. An estimated 1.2 million people in the United States could be living with Parkinson’s disease by 2030. There is currently no way to slow down the progression of these and other neurodegenerative diseases. 

“We are heartened by this recent finding in our ongoing mRNA-as-therapeutic-agents research that certain mRNA molecules provide differentiated neuronal cells full protection against hydrogen peroxide-induced oxidative stress, a system commonly used to study neurodegeneration in vitro,” said Dr. Steve Slilaty, CEO of Sunshine Biopharma. “We are excited about this discovery for patients suffering from neurodegenerative disorders. Our possible mRNA treatment could arrest the progression of neurodegeneration, alleviate symptoms, relieve pain, and increase mobility,“ he added.

What Are Bio Pharmaceuticals And Why Do Our Bodies Need Them?

Since their development, biopharmaceuticals have enhanced the quality of life in patients with various diseases. They can also help replenish the amino acids and vitamins we need from our diets but don’t always get in the proper doses. Amino acids are organic compounds that help to break down your food into the fuel you need. In this article, we take a closer look at what biopharmaceuticals are and how they can fuel our bodies to keep up with the demands of daily living.

BIO PHARMACEUTICALS VS REGULAR PHARMACEUTICALS

In broad terms, biopharmaceuticals are defined as pharmaceuticals that are inherently biological and produced using biotechnology. Their structure is identical to compounds already found in nature. They contain live entities and can include proteins, DNA  RNA, or antisense oligonucleotides for therapeutic purposes. However, they can be challenging to manufacture and require specialized and expensive processing and purification methods. In short, biopharmaceuticals are derived from living organisms. In contrast, pharmaceutical drugs are made from chemicals and synthetic processes rather than natural ones.

WHY BIO IS BETTER FOR OUR BODIES

One of the benefits of biopharmaceuticals is that they provide targeted treatment with fewer side effects, devoid of chemicals. Patients with cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, immune diseases, and other health problems benefit from this. Being healthy requires a balanced diet, physical activity, and general wellness. Amino acids are organic compounds that help to fuel us by breaking down our food and building proteins. Vitamins and minerals also help with healthy bodily functions and boost our immune systems, as well as repairing cell damage. Since our bodies cannot produce these amino acids and vitamins, biopharmaceuticals are a great source of these essential nutrients.

Ideally, a healthy diet should provide everything our bodies need, but it doesn’t always happen that way, as time, stress and resources sometimes prevent us from eating well. Even if we manage to eat balanced meals from time to time, there may still be some shortfall, which would have to be replaced with a supplement. Illnesses can also drain us of energy and affect our appetites, so biopharmaceutical products provide a safe alternative for the missing nutrients with little to no side effects.

GIVE YOUR BODY THE FUEL IT NEEDS.

Whether you want to boost your immune system, increase your protein intake and build muscle, or explore meal replacement options, Sunshine Biopharma Nutrition has the solution. All of our products are backed by science. We are continually engaged in the development and commercialization of science-based nutritional supplements.

SUNSHINE BIOPHARMA’S CORONAVIRUS TREATMENT ANTICIPATED TO BE EFFECTIVE AGAINST DELTA AND THE OTHER VARIANTS OF CONCERN

For Immediate Release August 12, 2021

Montreal, Canada – (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Sunshine Biopharma Inc. (OTC Pink: “SBFM”), a  pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of oncology and antiviral drugs today announced that it mapped the mutations found in Delta and the other variants of concern (“VOC”) identified to date and determined that the majority of the mutations are in the Spike protein and only a few fall within the genomic sequences that encode nsp3, a multi-domain protein that includes the PLpro enzyme. Serendipitously,  no mutations were mapped within the domain comprising the PLpro catalytic core. These findings indicate that our PLpro inhibitors currently under development at the University of Georgia would likely be effective against all of the VOC. 

The VOC currently recognized by the World Health Organization and the CDC in the United States include the Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta variants. All of the mutations of these variants were found to occur outside of the PLpro catalytic domain where our inhibitors function. Mutations falling outside of the catalytic domain of an enzyme are generally considered to be inconsequential to the activity of that enzyme. Based on the crystal structure of PLpro, the contact points of our inhibitors within the catalytic domain of PLpro remain unchanged. 

“We are delighted by these findings and look forward to completing our mice studies at the  University of Georgia soon,” said Dr. Steve N. Slilaty, CEO of Sunshine Biopharma.

Sunshine Biopharma Employs mRNA Vaccine Technology to Expand Its Fight Against Multidrug Resistant Cancer

For Immediate Release July 8, 2021

Montreal, Quebec, Canada – (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Sunshine Biopharma Inc. (OTC PINK:  “SBFM”), a pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of oncology and antiviral drugs, today announced that it has succeeded in inhibiting the activity of Nrf2 using mRNA vaccine technology. Nrf2 is a transcription factor responsible for the activation of oxidative stress genes as well as the cancer multidrug resistance genes, MDR1 (p-Glycoprotein), MRP1 and BCRP. By temporarily inhibiting Nrf2 activity with an mRNA injection immediately before or during chemotherapy, the Company hopes to achieve an enhanced performance of anticancer drugs and consequently better overall therapeutic outcomes for cancer patients. In separate studies using a small molecule inhibitor of Nrf2, the  Company results showed that the activity of a test anticancer drug (Etoposide) was enhanced approximately 4-fold. These studies were performed in MCF-7/MDR, a multidrug resistant breast cancer cell line. 

“The implications of these results for cancer therapy are enormous,” said Dr. Steve Slilaty, CEO  of Sunshine Biopharma. “We are excited about the prospects of making this discovery a future reality for cancer patients,” he added. 

About Sunshine Biopharma 

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the causative agent of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has claimed the lives of over 4 million people worldwide since it first appeared in December 2019. There are currently no drugs that can effectively arrest the replication of the virus in people who have contracted the illness. Sunshine Biopharma has completed the synthesis of four potential inhibitors of PLpro and subsequently identified a lead compound, SBFM-PL4. On February 1, 2021, Sunshine Biopharma entered into an exclusive license agreement with the University of Georgia for two Anti-Coronavirus compounds which the University of Georgia had previously developed and patented. The Company is currently advancing the development of these two compounds in parallel with its own SBFM-PL4 by conducting a transgenic mice study in collaboration with the University of Georgia, College of Pharmacy. The mice being used in the study have been genetically engineered to express the human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (hACE2) transmembrane protein in their lungs making them susceptible to lethal infection by SARS-CoV-2. The SARS-CoV-2 virus uses the hACE2 receptor to gain entry into human cells to replicate. The goal of the study is to determine if these protease inhibitors will protect the hACE2-transgenic mice from disease progression and death

following infection with SARS-CoV-2. Should these mice studies prove successful, Sunshine Biopharma plans to submit the results to the FDA for authorization to conduct testing on actual COVID-19 patient volunteers in a Phase I clinical trial setting. 

In addition, to working on the development of a treatment for COVID-19, Sunshine Biopharma is engaged in the development of Adva-27a, a unique anticancer compound. Tests conducted to date have demonstrated the effectiveness of Adva-27a at destroying Multidrug Resistant Cancer Cells, including Pancreatic Cancer cells, Small-Cell Lung Cancer cells, Breast Cancer cells, and Uterine Sarcoma cells. Clinical trials for Pancreatic Cancer indication are planned to be conducted at McGill University’s Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, Canada. Sunshine Biopharma is the owner of all patents and intellectual property pertaining to Adva-27a.
