3 PROTEIN MYTHS THAT REAL FOODIES NEED TO KNOW!

#1 Mainstream Protein Powders Are Highly Processed

The process of making protein powders often leaves a highly denatured protein, rendering it more-or-less useless as a health supplement in comparison to a whole food protein source. During processing the proteins are heated to a point that makes it difficult for our bodies to recognize it as food. Additionally many manufactures add synthetic and toxic ingredients to their products including aspartame, saccharin, fructose, and artificial colors. If you read the labels on most bulk protein blends you’ll see them there! Processed protein powders may also contain Mono-Sodium Glutamate (or MSG) in the form of protein isolates. This is because separating protein from its food source during manufacturing results in the creation of free glutamates. You won’t however see this in the list of ingredients because it is a by-product of manufacturing and does not have to be listed. Scary huh.

#2 Eating Protein Isolate Without Good Quality Fats Could Be Harmful To Your Health

Without the presence of good quality fats (in your protein blend and diet) your body is not able to assimilate and absorb many vital nutrients. This can lead to imbalances in Calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and Vitamin D. Some health issues associated with vitamin and mineral imbalances include heart arrhythmias, eye problems, bone loss, auto-immune disorders, thyroid issues, and kidney problems. Our bodies are designed to have a balanced array of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in order to function optimally. This is why whole foods are designed by nature the way they are.

#3 Popular Protein Blends Could Expose You To Toxic Heavy Metals

In a recent study of 15 protein drinks researchers found: “All drinks in our tests had at least one sample containing one or more of the following contaminants: arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury.” Even though the levels were relatively low, imagine consuming these products every day, sometimes 2-3 times a day as recommended by some health coaches. Alarmingly, the amount of lead in a single serving in 8 of the tested protein supplements would require a warning label in the state of California.
SAY GOODBYE TO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS & PROCESSED PROTEINS FOR GOOD!
