Confused about which Protein Powder to chose? New Study sheds light…

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 2:58 pm
Are you confused by all of the protein powders out there? Or are you simply looking at the marketing? Or are you going for the cheapest you can find?
👀check comments for recent research and CONTAMINATED products 😬.
JP Complete for the WIN!🙌🏼 Here’s what helped me make my decision.
👊🏼 NSF certified
👊🏼 Tested and researched in the human body and those results are published
👊🏼 Safe for pregnant/nursing moms, children, teens and adults
👊🏼 Plant-based (animal products are acidic and inflammatory)
👊🏼 Tastes good🙌🏼
👊🏼 Less than $2 per serving
If you or your child consume protein powder or collagen you’ll want to read this.

A third party company has examined 134 of the most popular protein powders and found that all of them tested positive for at least one heavy metal. 55% of them tested positive for BPA.

Heavy metals found were: arsenic, lead, mercury, and cadmium. They also tested for BPA and pesticides.

Some very popular brands were ranked poorly due to having the above contaminants.
•Muscle Milk
•Garden of Life
•Sun Warrior
and more

I can not stress enough the importance of getting your nutrition from real whole foods…and not isolated protein powders. If you do choose to use a powder look for a whole food option and be sure it is NSF Certified.

*complete lists in comments along with references

*the article states that whey protein ranked better than most plant proteins due to plants absorbing more of the contaminants. Keep in mind that whey has shown to be inflammatory which can be counterproductive to health. It’s wise to consume more plant food from clean sources…another reason why third party tests like this are important, and knowing more about the products you purchase is imperative.

Good to know that JP+ Complete is one of the cleaniest products there is.

Protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) is a method of evaluating the quality of a protein based on both the amino acid requirements of humans and their ability to digest it.
