Paleo Protein Powder
Are You Tired of Protein Powders that Cause Uncomfortable Bloating and Gas While Leaving a Heavy Feeling in Your Gut?
Introducing The First True Paleo Protein Powder
Featuring the Complete Paleo Bio-Matrix
Have you been looking for a protein powder that is dairy, egg, soy, grain, and legume free without all the fillers and artificial sweeteners?
Most of the protein powders on the store shelves come in a variety of options that can be confusing to sort through. Many of these proteins lack the purity that one would expect when using a powdered protein. Imagine that you are an athlete that demands a steady diet of protein. You have been using over-the-counter proteins only to find out that they did not have what the label actually claims. You would be frustrated and upset; feeling like you had been lied to. No one likes this feeling. However, athletes are not the only one using powdered proteins. These powders are an easy way to get protein in the morning and meet your daily requirements which make them suitable for all of us. So how do you know if you are getting a good protein? According to tests performed on products from store shelves, the quality is questionable. An article in Forbes blew the lid off of the scandal related to protein supplements and illustrated how many protein powders were ripping off consumers.
If you think the protein powder that you have been using is too good to fall into this category, don’t fool yourself. Even brands which carry celebrity endorsements, retail drug store, and major nutrition store branding were implicated as misrepresenting what they actually have in their products. Many products on the market have turned to using cheap fillers with the protein, rather than offering a pure protein product.
What Happens When You Consume Inferior Protein
Persistent inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract is one of the primary reasons for chronic disease. As a result, many are not getting the benefit of the proteins that they are taking in. Why? Most of these proteins are actually adding to the problem. Poor quality proteins are devoid of true nutritional value and nutrients. Many of them contain ingredients that are inflammatory. Moreover, the proteins are often contaminated with antibiotics and hormones given to the animals. Worse yet, the animals from which the proteins are derived are often being fed grains that are genetically modified. This means you are consuming some of the same toxic genetically modified compounds.
The artificial sweeteners found in many protein products should also draw your concern. Do you like drinking toxins that can destroy your brain and make you fat? The most common artificial sweeteners found in protein products are aspartame, acesulfame potassium and sucralose (aka Splenda). These toxins have been shown to promote excitatory effects on the nervous system that promote long term damage. Even more contradictory, and certainly less talked about, is that artificial sweeteners can promote metabolic syndrome prompted by changes to the gut bacteria. Most people take proteins to improve their metabolism, not damage it. Worse yet, the negative changes associated with the gut can create lasting effects. Protein should nourish your gut, not damage it.
Your protein doesn’t use artificial sweeteners. Instead it uses corn fructose and maltodextrin. So you should be okay right? Wrong! These sweeteners are derived from GMO corn. Thus they are likely to contain other unwanted chemicals. Regardless you are consuming a toxic substance that is making your sicker and not healthier.
Lack of sufficient quality protein is a significant contributor to toxicity, hormonal imbalances and many other problems associated with a breakdown in your metabolism. If you don’t consume highly bioavailable protein, here is what you can expect to happen.
- Protein is essential for supporting the second phase of detoxification.This phase helps us finish the transformation process of toxins, converting them to a form that is easily removable from the body. Without this conversion, these toxins are held in the body and contribute to an ongoing processes of aging and inflammation, a state consistently attributed to all chronic diseases
- Inadequate muscle tissue development Proteins are the dietary building blocks of muscle. If you want to live longer, you need more muscle. Skeletal muscle has been shown to improve the activity of the longevity proteins (1). Without the proteins to build muscle, you have a weaker overall muscular and skeletal frame which is associated with an early time of death.
- Weak immune system. The immune system is highly dependent on proteins. Proteins are used to make antibodies that help us combat ongoing challenges to our immune system. When we don’t have sufficient protein, our immune system cannot communicate effectively and does not recruit the cells needed to stop immune system challenges. Consuming poor quality proteins ultimately leads to lower protein uptake possibly resulting in decreased production of the immune proteins, or immunoglobulins, needed to protect us daily.
- Reduced production of needed hormones. Dietary protein is used to make important hormones such as insulin, growth hormone, and thyroid hormone. Without these hormones, you cannot control your glucose and your metabolism slows down leading to fat gain and poor mental function. Growth hormone is one of the primary anti-aging hormones.
Low Quality, Allergenic Proteins Inflame the Gut
After more than a decade of watching patients present with debilitating diseases and looking at their labs, one thing I have noticed is that protein can either work for you or against you. The consumption of the wrong proteins sets off a cascade of immune reactions that can lead to such symptoms as:
•Chronic gas and bloating
•Constipation and / or diarrhea
•and joint pain
•Weight gain that is resistance to diet and exercise changes
•Skin outbreaks, especially acne
Inferior proteins are likely to be more recognizable by the immune system of the gut, and beyond, thus resulting in the development of a series of reactions that create lasting inflammation with continued consumption of the protein.
How Are YOu Going to Turn Your Metabolism Around?
When you consume the right amount and sources of protein for your body, the results can be life changing. Here are just a few benefits seen with consumption of the Complete Paleo Bio-Matrix Protein.
•Breaks the Fat Cycle Catalyst: The fat cycle starts when you consume inflammatory foods that don’t help you build muscle and stimulate your fat tissue to be overactive. Consuming a high quality protein stops the fat cycle catalyst in its tracks and adds that spark often needed to shed extra weight and get your hormones working for you again.
•Increased muscle tissue development: Maximizing the effects of resistance training (weight training) depends on adequate proteins. Protein from red meat has been shown to be a safe and effective source for adding lean muscle tissue and strength, as well as reducing inflammation (8). Even better, the benefits are not just seen in the young, or in men. Both genders, old and young show benefit.
•Faster Exercise Recovery: The benefits of exercise are realized in the recovery process, but only if you fuel your muscles with the necessary amino acids in a rapidly absorbable form. Beef protein has a high biological value and will supply all essential and branch chain amino acids to generate quality muscle, getting you back to working out faster
•Stop the Hormone Deficiency Nightmare: Protein recharges growth hormone and thyroid hormone production. Dietary protein is the precursor to both. These hormones ignite your metabolism and with them you can enjoy easier muscle development and faster fat loss. In addition, adequate dietary protein helps clear excess hormones and stops the all-to-common hormone imbalances many women and men face.
•Increases Energy, Supports Hair and Nails and Keeps Weight Off: Red meat protein has a unique blend of amino acids and nutrients not found in other protein sources. Sufficient red meat intake can be a challenge for some. This has a direct impact on energy, iron intake and weight loss (5). Eating red meat reduces fatigue, makes nails stronger and reduces hair loss.
•Supports Reducing and Maintaining Lower Body Weight: The ability to maintain body weight appears to be improved with higher consumption of dietary protein (6).
•Antiaging Effect: As we age our ability to assimilate our proteins decreases. This increases our susceptibility to the stress responses of aging. Proper protein balance serves to maintain cellular function which likely has positive effects on chronic conditions such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimers and Parkinson’s Disease (7). A high quality, hydrolyzed protein promotes delivery of the needed proteins to promote healthy aging.
•Improved bone mineral content. Protein has a high amount of phosphorus. Higher levels of phosphorus from dietary protein are related to higher calcium and phosphorus levels in the bone. Both of these minerals are necessary for proper bone development. This is true in adolescents as well as later stages of life (2). Moreover, decreasing the risk of osteoporosis is not just dependent on the consumption of protein, but the consumption of good protein as noted by one study (3, 4).
Differences in Protein: Sources and Form
Protein can be derived from two sources, animals or plants. While we are lead to believe that plant-based sources of protein are comparable to animal sources, the simple truth is that they are not. By definition, animal proteins are complete proteins, indicating that they contain all of the essential amino acids. In contrast, plant-based proteins are incomplete proteins. They do not contain all of the essential amino acids. It is known that essential amino acids stimulate muscle protein synthesis to a greater extent than nonessential amino acids (9). Therefore, animal sources of protein provide more “bang for the buck”, especially when they are derived from the meat, bone and collagen as part of the Complete Protein Bio-Matrix.
It is common to have intolerances, allergies, and even sensitivities to supplemental proteins. This can be a factor of the original source of the protein or from the way that it is manufactured. Proteins such as whey and casein, both of which are derived from dairy, and egg, are likely to promote the development of an immune reaction that can be noted by some of the afore mentioned symptoms. These foods are also on the list of the top 8 allergens by the Food and Drug Administration. As a result, they are not recommended for many.
Other protein sources such as pea proteins are known to cause gastrointestinal distress for many. They can be hard to digest and may lead to excess gas or bloating as a result. Soy, another bean often used in protein powders has a long list of problems with it. This includes that it is an incomplete protein, missing the essential amino acid methionine in sufficient quantities, nearly all soy from the United States is genetically modified and should be avoided, and soy is known to have estrogen mimicking compounds that make it a concern for frequent use in males and those suffering from thyroid dysfunction. Without question, soy should be avoided. In addition, since soy and pea are not derived from animal sources, they cannot fully provide the Complete Protein Bio-Matrix.
Where to Get Supplemental Protein
After reviewing the information that I have shared with you here and looking at what my own patients had access to, I realized the options were problematic and limited. As a result, I got to work and came up with beef protein powder. At first, beef may not seem like a logical option for a protein powder. However, when you take a closer look, beef protein is the perfect option to jump start healing, improve metabolism and support the anti-aging process. This protein is unprecedented and is gaining the attention of not just more and more patients, but also nutrition experts and functional medicine doctors. It is bar-none one of the quickest ways to jump start your metabolism and here’s why.
Beef protein is an animal protein and the only one available that provides the Complete Paleo Protein Bio-Matrix. It has all of the essential amino acids needed to build muscle and fine tune your metabolism. With all of the essential amino acids, you can build the rest that you need. This is not the case with plant proteins.
