Hot new Protein Information
Hot Debate lately concerning protein supplements…..
And my goal is to get you some answers.
Some common questions that have risen lately;
Which is the best protein?
Which is actually protein?
Which isn’t full of fillers and artificial sweeteners?
Do the grams of protein listed actually reflect the actual protein content?
Is it safe?
Is it really healthy?
And then questions that many also have;
Is it gluten free?
Non- GMO certified?
Do you know the USDA actually doesn’t have to approve protein supplements for human consumption? Because they are not classified as food. But as as a supplement.
“* Terms such as "functional foods" or "nutraceuticals" are widely used in the marketplace. Such foods are regulated by FDA under the authority of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, even though they are not specifically defined by law.””
As I know most of us are extremely pressed for time and don’t have hours to devote to determining the actual best protein supplements you should be ingesting and why. I want to share this link with you:

Protein is necessary in the diet for tissue protein, for plasma protein, hormones, antibodies, hemoglobin, and to synthesize new muscle. However because of the unique ability to synthesize muscle and the conception that protein can not be stored as fat, fitness enthusiasts often overestimate the daily intake needed.
Yes, it is true that the body needs a fresh supply of protein for amino acid breakdown, But it is also true, that if there is a surplus the protein can be broken down by the body to create other nutrients, such as glucose, fatty acids, cholesterol or ketone bodies. = Storage of the surplus nutrients.
Not sure if you need to be using a protein supplement? Or how much protein you should be getting daily?
