What is "Ragless," a protein containing ▼glutamine?

Megumi Kurihara, official ambassador

Ragless Protein, of which Megumi Kurihara, a former Japanese women's volleyball player, is the official ambassador, was developed in pursuit of safety and taste.

With no additives such as flavors, preservatives, colorants, or artificial sweeteners, and manufactured in Japan, the product is loved not only by exercisers and strength trainers, but also by people who are trying to improve their daily health and dieters who are trying to replace meals.

Megumi Kurihara also gives her stamp of approval, saying, "It is rare to find a protein that contains neither flavoring nor preservatives, and as I am continuing my intestinal activities, the inclusion of 'glutamine' is also a great point for me.

Glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the human body, and is an important nutrient that prevents muscle breakdown and serves as an energy source for mucous membrane cells and immune cells.

One cup of Lagres provides approximately 5,000 mg* of glutamine, which is used to support weight loss and intestinal activity. *Use 3 cups of dedicated saggi.

Three flavors. Dried Strawberry flavor, which is rich in dried real strawberry powder to give it an authentic strawberry taste; Green Tea flavor, which is less sweet with plenty of matcha from Nishio, Aichi Prefecture; and Rich Chocolate flavor, which is a bittersweet, cocoa-strength flavor.

A no-obligation subscription campaign is also available, allowing customers to stop at any time.

Recommended by Megumi Kurihara, former member of Japan's women's volleyball team

No flavorings, preservatives, or other additives
