Whey Protein: It’s The Taste That Kills

Whey is a natural product that has become the fuel of choice muscle protein for Body Builders, but they can not claim discovery of him. Although it is not clear when it was first used, we know that Hippocrates (4th century BC) Whey liberally used for its natural healing qualities especially in the treatment of liver disease and gout. Whey also served on the beauty market for over a thousand years, both for weight loss and skin care

Now Whey draws new attention on a new market segment :. The crowd of regular gym workout that adopts the new fitness and weight loss paradigm of interval training.

While whey in its natural form as a by-product of cheese making is still used in the same way, whey protein that is marketed to bodybuilders in Mega doses at gyms and nutrition stores, may be more harmful than beneficial to the health of users. Why? Because the whey in these products has been highly processed, mixed and falsified with the aim to hook consumers on the taste so they use more of it. It does not resonate well with good conscience complementary protein research individual fitness to burn more fat.

natural unprocessed whey powder has about 11% protein and 75% carbohydrates, fiber, abundant B-Vitamins, Minerals (rich in highly absorbable calcium) and amino acids. But to build muscle quickly supernaturally, the percentage of protein is to be increased and the carbohydrate (lactose) decreased. It’s easy enough to do by filtering liquid whey in a process called ultrafiltration. Although the protein may be concentrated and isolated nearly 100%, other nutrients are lost proportionately. As with any processed food, nutrients and lost natural flavors must then be added as synthetic substitutes that include unlimited shelf live.

Nevertheless, it is possible to produce a natural high protein whey and there are some products “All Natural Whey Protein Body-Builders” available, but hardly a gym or ordinary supermarket. It may be necessary to search the Web using the right keywords.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of whey proteins are highly toxic concoctions with incompatible ingredients and antagonists that can compensate or to cancel the beneficial health effects of total whey; Some products aggressively advertised amount to nothing more than flavored toxic filth. It is therefore in the interest of consumers to read – and understand the ingredients labels before purchasing a product. Most promising fancy product names instant success and good taste flavors reminiscent complex desserts using several artificial sweeteners and toxic chemicals that harm the goal of the athlete. Here is a list of typical ingredients to avoid like the plague:

Artificial Coloring:

Blue # 1 = It has the ability to induce allergic reaction in people with pre-existing moderate asthma. Brilliant Blue FCF has already been banned in most of Europe, but has been certified as safe food additive in the EU and is now legal in most countries.

FD & C Yellow # 6 = Tartrazine appears to cause the most allergic reactions and intolerance of all azo dyes, especially in asthmatics and people with intolerance aspirin. Symptoms of tartrazine sensitivity can occur either by ingestion or dermal exposure to a substance containing tartrazine.

A variety of immunological responses have been attributed to the ingestion tartrazine, including anxiety, headaches, clinical depression, blurred vision, itching, general weakness, heat waves, choking sensation , purple skin patches, and sleep disorders. Some people have symptoms of tartrazine sensitivity, even at extremely low doses, some for periods up to 72 hours after exposure.In children, asthma and urticaria have been claimed and links presumed with thyroid tumors, chromosomal damage, and hyperactivity

Red # 40 = is a food coloring dye used added to a variety of products. While it may make the food aesthetic in appearance, it can cause a negative reaction in those who consume it. Red 40 can also affect adults; this is a common trigger for migraines. It can also cause an upset stomach and make you feel at ease and nervous. Children with ADHD usually have significant improvements in their behavior and ability to concentrate when red food coloring is removed from their diet. Artificial colors are redundant in a whey protein product, there is absolutely no justification for their use, there is no benefit, only risks.

Propylene Glycol = In food, it is used to preserve the color pigments of foods and distribute them evenly in the mixture. solvent and flavor or color carrier in food manufacturing processes and beverages. MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for Propylene Glycol said: May be harmful if swallowed or absorbed through skin. May cause irritation of the eyes, irritation of the skin. Chronic exposure can cause gastrointestinal disturbances, nausea, headache and vomiting, central nervous system depression.


Fructose or HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) = A cheap alternative and widely used to sucrose (table sugar). It is highly chemically treated “GM-Corn” genetically modified and is suspected of causing diabetes and obesity, and proved to cause adipose (fat) tissue around the waist. Why is it used in whey products ? Protein The answer is because it is cheaper than sugar, no other reason According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol 79, No 4:..

“The digestion, absorption and metabolism of fructose differ from those of the hepatic metabolism of glucose fructose promotes de novo lipogenesis (meaning that it creates a new adipose tissue) .. In addition, unlike glucose , fructose does not stimulate insulin secretion or improving the production of leptin. Because insulin and leptin act as key afferent signals in the regulation of food intake and body weight, suggesting that dietary fructose can help to increase the energy intake and the weight gain. “

Other side effects of fructose / HFCS are: high blood pressure, high triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, the depletion of vitamins and minerals, and even gout, heart disease and liver damage. fructose inhibits copper metabolism leading to copper deficiency, which can lead to increased bone fragility, anemia, ischemic heart disease and the formation of defective connective tissue, among others. The magnesium modified balance increases osteoporosis. Fructose no enzymes or vitamins depriving the body of valuable micronutrients.

Artificial sweeteners

acesulfame potassium “is a non-caloric sugar substitute synthetic, and although approved by the FDA, it is controversial for its negative effects on health. Because the human body can not metabolize these drinks without calories, metabolism is disturbed and thus puts the functionality of the entire product. The only reason this ingredient or there is a cost, which benefits the producer as he makes the questionable product. This, sometimes called Ace-K, is usually present in more than

sucralose ” – another non-caloric artificial sweetener, although the FDA approved, it remains very controversial. Suspected symptoms with sucralose are gastrointestinal problems (bloating, gas, diarrhea, nausea), skin irritation (redness, rash, redness, itching, swelling), wheezing, cough, runny nose , chest pain, palpitations, anxiety, anger, mood swings, depression, and itchy eyes. Why this ingredient is used? Again, due to cost reduction and convenience that benefits producers, who know that most customers are shopping the lowest price, no more high quality.

flavor enhancers

MSG (monosodium glutamate) is present in almost all products, well hidden under “natural and artificial flavors.” This is a common misnomer for Nasties like MSG and many other substances that consumers do not want and are hidden in euphemisms. MSG has no taste, but enhances the flavors of almost any substance is added on. In Whey Protein MSG is hidden under Saveurs, but on other labels, it may appear as “spice”, “yeast extract”, “autolyzed plant protein,” and other terms. This is important because MSG is hidden in so . of different products, the cumulative amounts can not be added What is the problem with Dr. Russell Blaylock MSG, a board certified neurosurgeon states in his book? “ Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills “: MSG is an excitotoxin, which means it excites your cells to the point of injury or death, causing brain damage to varying degrees – and perhaps even triggering or worsening learning disabilities, the disease Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease and more. Why was added MSG? To get addicted to the product you use most.

potassium chloride ” is used as a low toxicity fertilizer ingredient. It is also one of the combinations of the three drugs in lethal injections. So what is he doing in a product of whey protein? Ironically, it is because of the presence of MSG in the product, and it is a cheap ingredient to increase the level of potassium in the blood. “ When magnesium stores are low, as we see in athletes, the glutamate receptor are so sensitive that even low levels of these excitotoxins can result in cardiac arrhythmias and death.” -. According to Dr. Blaylock

Conservatives – Shelve direct extension

potassium sorbate = Potassium sorbate is low toxic and is considered safe. However, its synthetic characteristic is not considered too favorable by some experts. Prolonged Conservative use could lead to allergic reactions, nausea, diarrhea and loss of nutrients in food.

sodium benzoate = Apreservative used for decades by the global soft drink industry. Sodium benzoate derived from benzoic acid. It occurs naturally in berries, but is used in large quantities to prevent mold in soft drinks such as Sprite, Oasis and Dr Pepper. It is also added to marinades and sauces.

sodium benzoate has already been the subject of concern about cancer because when mixed with the additive vitamin C in soft drinks, it causes benzene, a carcinogenic substance. A Food Standards Agency survey of benzene in drinks last year found high levels in four brands which were removed from sale.

Now, an anti-aging expert at the University of Sheffield in the UK, who worked on sodium benzoate since publishing a research paper in 1999, tested the impact of sodium benzoate on living yeast cells in the laboratory. What he found alarmed him: the benzoate undermined an important area of ​​DNA in mitochondria, the cells that produce energy

The mitochondria consumes the oxygen to give you the energy and if you damage it – as happens in one. number if pathological states – then the cell starts to malfunction very seriously. And there are a whole range of diseases that are now linked to damage to this DNA -. Parkinson’s disease and many neurodegenerative diseases

Other Ingredients

vitamins and minerals ” – are added to replace nutrients lost in processing and filtering the vitamins and minerals naturally present in the whey. These are synthetic chemicals petrochemical derivatives with missing co-factors; the lack of resonance cells and synergistic action with other nutrients. This means that the possibility of a “one size fits all” product to restore your body’s nutrient balance is arbitrary and can do more harm than good. The main reason for adding these chemicals is marketing, it may seem the product is cheap because you do not need supplements. But it is better to buy direct source of vitamins and minerals that you can dose them according to your needs.

triglycerides ” = oils. Do not be fooled by expensive, cheap vegetable oils added, such as the ubiquitous Canola-, SOJA or safflower -. All of which are transgenic crops containing pesticides

“soy lecithin” = A binder and emulsifier from genetically modified soya Finally, the ingredients to avoid extended to the source of the ingredients Whey: is 1999015] Milk [CAVO comes from cows ? A CAFO is a type of operation which animals are crammed close together in a confined space that functions as a plant, sometimes called a factory farm. The vast majority of milk in the United States comes from cows that are fed with everything but what they are designed to eat: Grass! RSS is fed to animals rather than the animals grazing or otherwise seeking feed in pastures, fields or rangelands. Unfortunately, but not by monitoring, you will not find this statement on the label – but if the milk is indeed comes from pasture roaming grass-fed cows, you will definitely find this statement! If the label is silent on this issue, you can bet that the VACO milk is used, which means antibiotics, steroids and synthetic growth hormone rBGH, and low calcium levels – in short -. Toxic dirt to start

It is really not difficult to identify the products that you do not want, simply by adding unhealthy ingredients. You can see which manufacturer priority lowest costs and highest margin on even the most basic health concerns.
