What kind of protein is used?
We use a proprietary blend of whey isolate, whey concentrate and whey peptides. This gives our Shake a “cleaner” taste and reduces digestion issues such as water retention, stomach cramping, lethargy and a host of other discontenting conditions associated with cheaper protein brands.
Does your whey protein contain the hormones RBGH or BST?
No. Our whey is produced from herds of cows that are not given recombinant bovine growth hormone (RBGH) or bovine somatotropin.
Many companies sell casein protein and claim that the body absorbs it slower than whey, stating that it is good to take throughout the day and especially at night. Is this true?
The dictionary states: “Casein is a white, tasteless, odorless, milk and cheese protein that is used to make plastics, adhesives, paints, and foods.” Casein is a very cheap protein used by companies to offer pliability to protein bars, and to save money on the production of protein powders and other high protein products. Casein is also highly allergenic to many individuals and can be difficult to digest.
Does the Shake contain dairy?
The Shake contains whey protein that comes from milk, however, the process removes 99.9% of the milk byproduct, therefore making the Shake virtually casein and lactose free, but technically not dairy free.
How does chia help endurance in athletes?
Chia is hydrophilic and can absorb 10 times its weight in water. This means that Chia increases body hydration, which is especially beneficial for athletes who need to remain hydrated during long races and endurance activities.*
Can I lose weight eating chia?
Since Chia is highly hydrophilic (it absorbs water), it expands in the stomach giving you a pleasant feeling of satiety or fullness and if you feel full you’ll be less likely to overeat.
What is the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber?
Soluble fiber attracts water. When it’s mixed with liquid, soluble fiber forms a gel-like substance and swells. It is great for moderating blood glucose levels and lowering cholesterol.* Soluble fiber is found in peas, beans, lentils, oatmeal, and the pectin of fruit. Insoluble fiber does not swell or dissolve in water and passes through the digestive system in much the same way it entered the system.
