Unjury Protein launches Protect & Restore Advanced Protein+ to reduce side effects of GLP-1 RAs

Unjury Protein has launched its Protect & Restore Advanced Protein+ - the first clinically supported medical food and co-therapy for GLP-1 RA anti-obesity medications (AOMs) – specifically designed to minimise side effects often experienced during GLP-1 RA use.

Unjury Protect & Restore Advanced Protein+ – the first clinically supported medical food and co-therapy for GLP-1 RA anti-obesity medications (AOMs)

An estimated one in eight American adults have taken a GLP-1 drug. Although GLP-1 RA AOMs can help people achieve clinically significant weight loss, up to 40% of individuals report side effects, including the loss of lean muscle, nutrient deficiencies, digestive discomfort, metabolic dysfunction and nausea.


The first two abstracts supporting the clinical benefits of Protect & Restore Advanced Protein+ as a GLP-1 co-therapy were presented during last week at the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Annual Meeting in San Diego.



"Protect & Restore Advanced Protein+ is a clinically unique and effective nutrient solution designed to support the millions of patients turning to GLP-1 RAs for weight management support," said Dr John P. Troup, Chief Science Officer, Unjury and Blueroot Health. "Early clinical research is extremely encouraging to support beneficial use of Protect & Restore as a co-therapy with GLP-1 RA medications. Larger clinical trials are currently in progress."


Protect & Restore Advanced Protein+ is a clinically studied medical food designed to support the safe and comfortable use of GLP-1 RA medications by addressing four key nutrient-based issues of support:

  • Promotes muscle mass and strength – The unique whey protein blend with leucine and branched-chain amino acids has been shown in scientific studies to be up to 5x more effective at building muscle than whey protein alone. This benefit can help minimize potential muscle loss during treatment.

  • Replenishes key nutrients – Protect & Restore Advanced Protein+ delivers 17 essential vitamins and minerals to help support the daily nutrient requirements and ensure optimal nutrition.

  • Promotes healthy digestive function – Soluble and insoluble fibres can support stomach motility and minimize digestive discomfort, such as bloating and constipation.

  • Reduces nausea – Plant phytonutrients can ease nausea, a common side effect reported with GLP-1 RA treatment.


According to the company, Protect & Restore Advanced Protein+ offers a clean product profile and is formulated without artificial flavours, sweeteners, or dyes, making it suitable for a range of patients. It is available in Tropical Twist and Chocolate Mocha flavours and offered in a 15-serving tub (MSRP: $59.95).
