• Increases intake of branched chain amino acids (BCAA). Higher intake of these amino acids benefits muscle development and anabolic function as well as improving immunity.

• Decreases your omega 6 to omega3 ratio which reduces tissue inflammations and promotes healing.

• Lowers body acidity and normalizes pH balance. This reduces the negative effect of acidosis on bone and muscle while stimulating muscle protein synthesis. Reducing acidity in the body is even more critical as we age.

• The Paleo Diet is high in trace nutrients. Vitamins and minerals are necessary for optimal health. The most nutrient dense foods are vegetables and seafood. On average, vegetables have nearly twice the nutrient density of grains.

Can the paleo diet please get a new spokesperson. Preferably someone who is actually recording results on the diet and understands sarcasm.
