1Why you could be wasting your money on one of the many protein powders which are very heavily processed and contain “controversial” additives such as genetically modified organisms (GMO's) and artificial sweeteners.
2How to choose a protein powder which ensures the best nutrition for your body (organic whey is only part of it).
This is where the problems start for most people who use protein powders. They make a good decision to use protein powders to increase their protein intake but they don't know the red flags to look for in the proteins they choose.
We all know that working out and eating right to build muscle and lose fat can be a real challenge. We know that hard training and healthy natural foods help us to build muscle and lose bodyfat but what many people haven't realized is that...
Unless you eat organic, muscle building and fat loss can be even more difficult.
The reason is simple but often overlooked.
Health, muscle gain and fat loss depend on a complex interplay of chemical processes and hormones. When we eat non-organic foods (which may contain by pesticides, fertilizers, hormones or heavy metals), these delicate processes may become unbalanced. In simple terms:
Non-organic foods can stop our bodies working properly and many people find that they build muscle and lose fat simply by eating the same foods but switching to organic.
So if you are serious about building a strong, lean, healthy body, you should ideally stop consuming non-organic, processed protein powders and use a pure whey like Protein 17.
There's more good news too:
It's a myth that eating organic costs more—it can actually cost you less!
Many people report spending less money on food when they eat organic.
Simple - it's likely that they get more nutrients (from the organic products) so their bodies crave less food. Therefore, they eat less.
Here's an example:
Would your body benefit more from 20grams of highly-processed, artificially-sweetened protein or 10grams of minimally-processed, organic, pure whey protein?
Many commercial protein powders:
Scary isn't it?
Whey protein concentrate that is certified organic and comes from cows that graze on organic grass pastures.
Do NOT accept whey made from factory-farmed, grain-fed or corn-fed cows.
Cows that are not treated with artificial hormones.
Do not accept whey from cows who are treated with artificial hormones. Many non-organic farms treat dairy cows with rBGH (Bovine Growth Hormone) to increase milk production. This hormone is highly controversial and actually been banned in many European countries.
Do NOT accept high-heat processed whey. Most whey protein is processed with very high temperatures. This can damage the delicate immune-boosting properties and amino acids naturally found in whey.
Whey protein organic concentrate from cows that graze on organic grass pastures.
Do NOT accept whey protein isolate, hydrolysate or isolate/concentrate blends, even if they claim to be grass-fed whey protein. Isolates/hydrolysates are proteins that have heavily can damage their nutritional cofactors (see below for a more detailed explanation).
Whey protein concentrate that is free from acid treatments.
Do NOT accept whey that has been acid treated or is ion exchanged. These methods are are cheaper (this is why they are used), but they may damage the protein.
Free from artificial sweeteners.
Do not accept protein powders that are contain artificial sweeteners like Aspartame, Sucralose or Acesulfame K. These sweeteners are highly controversial often used to mask the very bitter taste of inferior acid processed whey.
Know the origin of your whey protein.
Some top protein powder brands use whey sourced from China or India. As you can imagine quality standards vary significantly from country to country.
Whey Protein Isolates, Hydrolysates and Isolate/Concentrate blends have been well marketed but the reality is that they are more heavily processed powders in which the proteins are potentially damaged and many of the beneficial components of the whey have been removed (unlike grass fed whey protein).
You see, Whey Protein Concentrate is also known as WPC80.
All WPC 80 means is that it’s 80 percent protein.
The remaining 20% consists of beneficial nutrients and minerals that exist naturally in milk that your body will use to help absorb & process the whey optimally.
So why do manufacturers remove these??
The fitness business knows people are fixated on the amount of protein per serving so if they can list a slightly higher number on the label by reducing these nutrients, they will do it.
So, that's the difference between an isolates/hydrolysates and concentrate:
The isolates / hydrolysates have lower levels of certains nutrients just so the label can list a few extra grams of protein per serving.
(Note: be wary of anyone advertising “raw whey”. It is against the law to sell raw whey in many countries. Protein 17 is not raw but it is minimally-processed to maintain the quality of the amino acids and the nutrients).
If you really want the fastest health and muscle gains, make sure you are using the purest, grass-fed, organic natural whey protein concentrate powder.
Flavor: Delicious natural creamy taste.
Pure & non-instantized, from cows that graze on organic grass pastures. Size: 1 lb.
