Does My Protein Supplement Matter?
Let’s say that you were going to build a a brand new house. You hired the best architect and the
best builders in the world to create the house of your dreams. Now once it comes time to build, you start to choose cheap materials, Chinese Drywall, and low quality screws to hold the place together. So you now have this gorgeous looking house that’s ready to go. Years go by when you start noticing some creaking floor boards. Leaks spring up throughout the plumbing. The walls start to show signs of cracking.
You spend thousands of dollars trying to patch all of these holes, which could have been prevented by having great materials to start with. You get the credit card statement back, and all of the patchwork you’ve done now COSTS MORE than what your original investment would have been.
Your body is like that house, and the quality of materials is related to the food you put in. Supplements, especially protein are no different. Protein is the most important type of nutrient you can put into the body. It is the building block of muscle, but it is also what helps to form enzymes that allow your body to work properly. Getting the RIGHT protein is critical for a healthy foundation.
Here are some things to look for:
- Less than 15g of sugar per serving
- High quality organic and grassfed Whey protein (pea protein if vegan)
- Non-GMO and no antibiotics
- No artificial sweeteners (Sucralose, Nutrasweet, Equal, etc.)
After years in health in fitness, I can find no higher quality product than the Whey protein offered by Jay Robb. You can find it at your local Whole Foods or Health Foods store. For Vegan options, look into brands like SunWarrior or Vega.
