Net Weight: 532 g

Melcalin Pralbumina is a food supplement containing Proteins and Minerals. Proteins contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass while minerals help electrolyte balance and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Melcalin Pralbumina is gluten and lactose free.


PRALBUMINA is a food supplement based on proteins (egg white) and minerals. The product supplements the albumin properties to those of a very low PRAL (-35).
Albumin regulates and maintains the osmotic pressure necessary for the proper distribution of body fluids intra and extracellular (ECW-ICW), modulates vascular tone, regulates the acid-base balance, has antioxidant functions and scavenger, acts as a transport of hormones and toxic substances by acting as chelating of metals such as copper, zinc, cadmium, nickel and cobalt. These properties are integrated with those arising from the assumption of buffer elements (very negative value of PRAL-Potential Renal Acid Load) which are of considerable benefit for the maintenance of muscle mass (FFM Skeletal muscle, TBprotein) and skeletal (bone) and for the improvement of various problems in the cardio-vascular system load.
