Why Chose nutraMetrix TLS® Plant-Based Protein Shake
With the popularity of plant-based diets, it is not limited to just purely food. Plant-based protein supplements can be excellent alternatives to animal-based protein sources if you’re a health conscious person simply looking to cut out meat.
nutraMetrix TLS® Plant-Based Protein Shake is an alternative to whey-protein based shakes, providing a balanced blend of pea and rice protein for optimal nutrition. It’s an excellent source of protein that supplies essential nutrients to support weight management.
While rice protein is the more known plant-based protein supplement option (besides soy), pea protein stacks up just as high with benefits. Like rice, pea protein is a great option outside of whey for those who are sensitive to lactose, because it is dairy-free.1 Pea protein is a complete protein1, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids required in the daily diet. When combined together, rice protein and pea protein serve up all the amino acids found in whey protein.
Available in a tasty vanilla flavor, each serving of this protein drink delivers an ideal balance of carbohydrates, fats and protein. This nutritious shake may be used in conjunction with your TLS® Weight Loss Solution program, or as quick snack to keep you full and satisfied between meals.
nutraMetrix TLS® Plant-Based Protein Shake is free of major allergens and is the perfect addition to your active and on-the-go lifestyle! Discover your healthiest self and get the energy and nutrition you need to perform at your best.

Key Ingredients Found In nutraMetrix TLS® Plant-Based Protein Shake
Fibersol-2® (soluble fiber complex): 4,500 mg Fibersol-2 has a positive impact on the elimination of wastes and colon cleansing, as well as helping to maintain balanced bowels, helping support normal bowel regularity and fecal volume and supporting healthy digestive function. It is a safe (GRAS) maltodextrin, easily mixed in water and carries no flavor. Because it is high in naturally occurring chemical bonds that remain undigested even in the digestive tract, it helps to support overall health by helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels, helping to maintain normal blood glucose levels and promoting immune health. Some studies have also shown that Fibersol® can provide an increased feeling of satiety, leaving consumers feeling fuller for longer periods of time. This trademarked ingredient has far-reaching clinical research to substantiate its role of support for maintaining intestinal regularity.*
Vitamin A (20% as Beta-Carotene): 660 mcg RAE Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin. Sources of vitamin A include organ meats (such as liver and kidney), egg yolks, butter, carrot juice, squash, sweet potatoes, spinach, peaches, fortified dairy products and cod liver oil. Vitamin A is also part of a family of compounds, including retinol, retinal and beta-carotene. All the body’s tissues use Vitamin A for normal growth and repair.*
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid): 60 mg Vitamin C is found in peppers (sweet, green, red, hot red and green chili), citrus fruits and Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, collards, mustard greens, broccoli, spinach, guava, kiwi fruit, currants and strawberries. Nuts and grains contain small amounts of vitamin C. It is important to note that cooking destroys vitamin C activity. The body does not manufacture vitamin C on its own, nor does it store it. Therefore, vitamin C must be acquired through diet.
Thiamin (Vitamin B1): 3 mg Thiamin plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism and nerve function. Thiamin is required for a healthy nervous system and assists in the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).*
Vitamin B12: 120 mcg Vitamin B12 is naturally found in meats, liver, beef, pork, eggs, whole milk, cheese, whole wheat bread and fish. Vitamin B12 can only be found in animal products, with small amounts derived from fermented soy products such as miso and tempeh, and peanuts. Vitamin B12, when ingested, is stored in the liver and other tissues for later use. Vitamin B12 itself is responsible for maintaining optimum energy levels as it plays a vital role in the Krebs energy cycle.*
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2): 3 mg Vitamin B2 is found in liver, dairy products, dark green vegetables and some types of seafood. Vitamin B2 serves as a co-enzyme, working with other B vitamins. Vitamin B2 plays a crucial role in turning food into energy as a part of the electron transport chain, driving cellular energy on the micro-level. Vitamin B2 aids in the breakdown of fats while functioning as a cofactor or helper in activating B6 and folic acid. Vitamin B2 is water-soluble and cannot be stored by the body except in insignificant amounts; thus, it must be replenished daily. The riboflavin coenzymes are also important for the transformation of vitamin B6 and folic acid into their active forms and for the conversion of tryptophan into niacin.*
Pyridoxine HCl (Vitamin B6): 6 mg Poultry, fish, whole grains and bananas are the main dietary sources of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 promotes normal hemoglobin synthesis. It supports the norm al synthesis of neurotransmitters in brain and peripheral nerve cells.*
Vitamin D3: 10 mcg Regular sunlight exposure is the main way that most humans get their vitamin D. Food sources of vitamin D are vitamin D-fortified milk (100 IU per cup), cod liver oil, and fatty fish such as salmon. Vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and supports the production of several proteins involved in calcium absorption and storage.*
Vitamin E: 20 mg The most valuable sources of dietary vitamin E include vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and wheat germ. Safflower oil contains large amounts of vitamin E and there are trace amounts in corn oil and soybean oil. Vitamin E is actually a family of related compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols. The main health benefit of supplemental vitamin E comes from its immune-boosting antioxidant activity. It also promotes normal healing and is known to promote cardiovascular health. Vitamin E is one of the most powerful fat-soluble antioxidants in the body. Vitamin E protects cell membranes from free radicals.*
Calcium: 600 mg The highest concentration of calcium is found in milk. Other foods rich in calcium include vegetables such as collard greens, Chinese cabbage, mustard greens, broccoli, bok choy and tofu. Calcium is an essential mineral with a wide range of biological roles. In bone, calcium accounts for approximately 40 percent of bone weight. The skeleton has a structural requisite and acts as a storehouse for calcium.*
Magnesium: 249 mg Foods rich in magnesium include unpolished grains, nuts and green vegetables. Green leafy vegetables are potent sources of magnesium because of their chlorophyll content. Meats, starches, dairy products and refined and processed foods contain low amounts of magnesium. Recent research shows that many people’s diets are deficient in magnesium. The average daily magnesium intake in the U.S. for males is estimated to be about 323 milligrams; for females, it is estimated to be around 228 milligrams. Both of these are considerably less than the RDA of 400 and 360 milligrams, respectively.
Magnesium is a component of the mineralized part of bone and supports the normal metabolism of potassium and calcium in adults. It is also important for the mobilization of calcium, transporting it inside the cell for further utilization. It supports the normal functioning of muscle and nervous tissue. Magnesium is necessary for the synthesis of all proteins, nucleic acids, nucleotides, cyclic adenosine monophosphate, lipids and carbohydrates.*
Potassium: 25 mg Foods rich in potassium include fresh vegetables and fruits such as bananas, oranges, cantaloupe, avocado, raw spinach, cabbage and celery. Potassium is an essential macromineral that helps to keep fluid balance. It also plays a role in a wide variety of biochemical and physiological processes. Potassium is important in releasing energy from protein, fat, and carbohydrates during metabolism.*
Selenium: 85 mcg The best dietary sources of selenium include nuts, unrefined grains, brown rice, wheat germ, and seafood. In the body, selenium functions as part of an antioxidant enzyme called glutathione peroxidase, as well as promoting normal growth and proper usage of iodine in thyroid functioning. Selenium also supports the antioxidant effect of vitamin E and is often added to vitamin E supplements. As part of the antioxidant, glutathione peroxidase, selenium plays a role in the body’s ability to protect cells from free radicals.*
Zinc (Lactate): 15 mg Zinc is largely found in fortified cereals, red meats, eggs, poultry and certain seafood, including oysters. It is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins. It is also involved in the regulation of gene expression. Zinc is an essential trace mineral that has functions in approximately 300 different enzyme reactions. Thus, zinc plays a part in almost all biochemical pathways and physiological processes. More than 90 percent of the body’s zinc is stored in the bones and muscles, but zinc is also found in virtually all body tissues.*
Biotin: 300 mcg Biotin can be found in food sources, such as egg yolks, peanuts, beef liver, milk (10 mcg/cup), cereals, almonds and Brewer’s yeast. Biotin is used for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, metabolism of fats and amino acids. It plays a role in the Citric acid cycle, which is the process in which biochemical energy is generated during aerobic respiration. Biotin not only supports various metabolic chemical conversions but also helps to transfer carbon dioxide.*
