Grass Fed Whey Protein

on May 30, 2014

Why supplement your eating with organic, raw, cold pressed whey protein?  Personally, I need to supplement my daily intake of food with protein shakes in order to gain and maintain muscle mass – that’s just my body.  I normally opt for vegan based Epic Protein, but do rotate in Source Organic Whey Protein (raw and cold pressed).  I do not eat dairy, aside from this.

I supplement my eating with raw, organic, cold pressed whey protein because it’s one of the best gluathione promoting food sources.  Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants in your body. It’s different from other antioxidants because it is actually inside your cells. It can maximize the activity of all the other antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid, and fresh veggies and fruits you eat.  The main function of glutathione is to protect your cells and mitochondria from free radical damage.  Therefore, it boosts your immune system!  As you age, your body’s ability to produce glutathione diminishes – even more reason to eat foods that will increase it’s production, such as raw whey protein.

Supplementation of gluathione is NOT effective because of poor absorption and can actually interfere in the body’s natural ability to produce it – yikes!

 

Other benefits of organic, raw whey protein:

*Contains all essential amino acids for overall health

*Keeps your energy levels up

*Supports your joint and muscle health

*Helps maintain beneficial gut bacteria

*Promotes your muscle strength, endurance and recovery

*Protects all your tissues’ cells with its antioxidant properties

*Supports your body’s optimal metabolic rate and fat burning level  – we like this!

 

Remember, when choosing a whey protein please stick with these guidelines:

*All natural pasture raised and grass fed cows

*GMO free

*Cold pressed, NOT heated

*Acid free processing, NOT acid/ion exchange

*Whey protein concentrate, NOT protein isolates

*Sweetened naturally, NOT artificially

*Easy to digest medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), NOT digestive stressing long-chain fatty acids

*Free of from toxic heavy metals or extremely low as to not be a health risk, NOT mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic containing whey protein products
