Now that you have done that, allow me to explain in detail why ...
MY PROTEIN IS BETTER THAN YOURS
1. No Cow Hormones
I hate to break it to you, but eating cows jacked up off of growth hormones does not make you jacked up.
It just makes you full of toxic chemicals and unhealthy.
If it doesn't say rBGH or rBST ...
It has cow hormones ....
The protein I take proudly displays an "rBGH Free" stamp right on the front label.
Enough said ...
2. No Soy Protein
Several studies have shown that soy intake leads to increased levels of estrogen in the body.
Increased estrogen can lead to decreased testosterone.
If you are reading this blog, the last thing you want is decreased testosterone.
Even if you don't buy into the whole "soy decreases testosterone" controversy, studies have demonstrated that it is not the optimal choice of protein supplementation.

The protein I take does not contain soy protein.
It contains 25% whey protein, 25% casein protein, 25% whey protein isolate, and 25% milk protein.
(Note: When reading your food labels, the order of the ingredients is critical. The earlier it appears on the list, the more of it there is in your food. Remember this when we get to point #4.)
3. No Artificial Sweeteners
To keep it simple, the point of an artificial sweetener is to give you the sweet taste provided by sugar without the guilt of the calories.
Unfortunately, many of these artificial sweeteners are nothing more than poison.

If your protein has things like aspartame or sucralose in it, I wish you the best of luck.

The protein I take does not have aspartame or sucralose.
4. No Whey Concentrate
Remember when I told you to remember point #4 when we got to food labels.
Well, we are at point #4.
If you see Whey Concentrate right at the beginning of your ingredient list, immediately dump your protein in the garbage.
The purest form of whey protein supplementation is called Whey Isolate. It contains 90% or more protein and very little fat.
Whey concentrate, on the other hand, can have between 25% and 89% protein.
Do you really want to ingest a protein that can only be 25% protein.
I don't ...
That is why the protein I take does not have any Whey Concentrate.
It has the perfect blend of 25% whey protein, 25% casein protein, 25% whey protein isolate, and 25% milk protein.
5. High Glycemic Index
The higher the glycemic index (GI) a food has, the more it will increase the amount of blood glucose.
I was going to explain this in more detail, but I think the caption below paints a nice enough picture.
Does your protein have matlodextrin or dextrose?
I hope note.
Those ingredients have been known to have an even higher GI than sugar.
The protein I take does not have either.
What is My Protein???
In case you missed my blatantly obvious subliminal messages (which I only used 5 times), the protein I take is from a company called BioTrust.
It is the same company that created the Organic Protein Bar.
I respect the quality of their products so much that I became an affiliate.
If you are interested in purchasing BioTrust Protein, click on GET IT HERE anywhere you see it throughout this article.
As I mentioned with the organic protein bars, I highly recommend you read the information provided by BioTrust and consult with your physician prior to using this product. You should never consume any supplement without having good background information on it. With that, you should do the same for every other cow hormone loaded, artificial sweetener having, soy containing supplement you are taking now.
