PROTEIN – The single most important food we eat. The name comes form the Greek “protos,” meaning “first place” or “takes first place.”
Protein is the number one food of all animals, and it does deserve first place.
It is in every animal product and even vegetables in fact there is more protein in broccoli pound for pound than in a steak, and 1 gram of raw vegetable protein is worth more than 2 grams of animal protein.
Thats because raw vegetable protein is easier to digest than animal protein, a good quality protein powder can be digested in as little as 15 minutes.
As with pork protein can take up to 18 hours to completely digest.
Why a Protein Powder Supplement?
Do we get enough quality protein?
According to Dr. Bruce Miller. The key to optimum health is getting enough, high quality, complete protein.
Most Americans don’t get enough protein and the protein they get is not high quality protein, Protein from animal sources has high fat content and other additives that make it hard to digest.
Consider this from the U.S. Surgeon General’s Report on Nutrition and Health, “For the two out of three adult Americans who do not smoke and do not drink excessively,
One personal choice seems to influence long-term health prospects more than any other: What we eat. “Protein is a star performer in what we eat for over-all health.”
All Proteins are not equal.
The quality of protein powder or protein in food is measured by the balance and amounts of the essential amino acids it contains.
If the protein powder or protein found in your food contains all nine essential amino acids in proper amounts to support your body’s health, it is called a complete protein.
Some examples of complete proteins are eggs, milk, most meat products, soybeans, fish and some cheeses.
Shaklee’s Protein Powder called Energizing Soy Protein Powder, has all nine essential amino acids in the proper amount and is a complete protein.
And Shaklee’s Protein Powder has the same high quality rating as cow’s milk which is the gold standard for Protein quality.
Shaklee’s Energizing Soy Protein is one of my favorite products I used to increase my energy and endurance over 30 years ago.
It helped me go from hanging 30 to 50 sheets of drywall per day in one month.
I also took Shaklee’s Vita-Lea Multivitamin the multivitamin is like new spark plugs and the protein is like high octane gasoline.
Only for your body not your car.
