Wellness Tip: Did You Know … ?
Updated: Jan 29
In 1999 JANA winter edition reported from their study that 97.5% of the randomly selected market sold supplements tested to be ineffective, toxic, or both! Meaning 2 out of 100 products where actually worth spending money on (that’s like finding a needle in a hay stack)! This includes your Protein Powder(s) too. Go into any grocery or supplement store and you will find an array of protein powder options. How do you know if your are you choosing one that truly supports your health?
Consider the following: *Whey protein powders: Many whey protein powders contain protein isolates rather than whey protein concentrate. Highly processed, isolated proteins are stripped away from their nutritional cofactors. You may find an isolate product to be a little less expensive in the short run, but here’s the bottom line… it’s actually a waste of your money because your body can’t assimilate over-processed proteins in an isolated form! So your body is not getting any of the valuable benefits. In addition both your egg and whey market protein powders have a high potential to have – residues of: hormones, anti-biotics, pesticides – casenite which is a toxic form of pasteurized milk that causes mucus to build up in the gut that can cause constipation and create a web for bad bacteria to build up
*Soy protein powders: – today 85% of soy crops are Genetically Engineered (simply stated GE = pesticides are being grown inside your foods) – all soy contains phyto-estrogens which interrupt hormone balance of men and women
*Brown Rice and Hemp protein powders: – when these grains are not traditionally prepared (soaked and sprouted) it is very difficult for your body to digest these powders – they also usually contain “natural flavors” which is another word for MSG which is a toxin to your nervous system (aka “neurotoxin”)
On top of all of the above, most have SYNTHETIC vitamins added to them which the body actually treats as a foreign agent, rather than nourishing your body cells it actually damages them which all accelerates aging.
Here is just a typically example of a (purposely un-named) Protein Powder Shake mix sold on the market and by many nutritionists. Exclusive IsaPro Complex (whey protein concentrate undenatured New Zealand) calcium caseinate non-fat dry milk), fructose, sunflower oil powder, soluble fiber, natural flavors, soy lecithin, olive oil powder, flax seed, guar gum, xanthum gum, lemon fruit, magnesium oxide, tri-calcium phosphate, honey powder, magnesium citrate, ionic alfalfa, potassium citrate, lactobacillus acidophilus, copper amino chelate, Yucca root powder, ascorbic acid, psyllium seed powder, cinnamon powder, silicon dioxide, biotin lactase, vitamin E, A, zinc oxide, magnesium amino acid chelate, iodine amino acid chelate, niacinamide, B5, D3, Chromium acid chelate, niacin selenium amino acid chelate, molybdenum amino acid chelate, B6, enzyme blend (this is a just a portion of the list (I got tired of typing but I think you get the picture).
Just the list alone looks scary, compare the facts above to this actually very popular used protein powder list of ingredients and notice that instead of nourishing the body it’s simply putting more hardship into it. Why add more toxins for a short term effect when you can have a long term effect in a natural way without adding additional toxins to the body. Why not treat yourself to the real thing?
