The Bio-Health Pasture Fed Whey Difference
🐄 🌿 Bio-Health Pasture Fed Protein is a Staple in Most Athletes’ Diets for Several Good Reasons...
.It's 100% naturally sweetened (with Stevia) and flavored made from exceptionally high-quality milk.
Pasture Fed Protein is a staple in most athletes’ diets for several good reasons:
✓ It’s digested quickly
✓ It’s absorbed efficiently
✓ It’s high in the amino acid leucine, which plays a key role in initiating protein synthesis
✓ It’s easy on the taste buds
Accordingly, whey protein quickly became the most popular sports supplement on the market, and it continues to dominate best-seller lists everywhere.
When we set out to bring Bio-Health Pasture Fed Protein to Get Yok'd, we wanted to achieve several things:
1. We wanted to maximize the amount of protein per scoop and minimize the amount of carbohydrates and fat.
If you’re like us, you don’t like “wasting” calories on carbs and fat in protein powders.
We’d rather eat those calories, not drink them.
2. We wanted it to be free of lactose, artificial sweeteners and flavoring, gluten, MSG, and GMOs.
Many people are lactose intolerant to some degree, so a lactose free whey protein means all-around better digestibility and fewer upset stomachs.
While artificial sweeteners may not be as harmful as some people claim, research suggests that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health.
A gluten-free diet is unnecessary for most people, but those with celiac disease or a legitimate gluten sensitivity must avoid all forms of gluten.
MSG is often used to hide the natural bitter flavor of whey, and we’ve chosen not to include it in Bio-Health Pasture Fed Protein.
The safety of MSG is the subject of ongoing scientific discussion, but research has shown that some people experience uncomfortable symptoms upon eating it and that it can be neuro-active in the brain when consumed in high dosages.
And, in general, GMO foods certainly aren’t as dangerous as alarmists would have us believe, but a large number of respected scientists believe more research should be done before we fully integrate them into our food supplies and diets.
3. We wanted it to come from cows that weren’t treated with hormones or antibiotics.
Similar to artificial sweeteners, milk from cows treated with such drugs may not be as bad as some people claim, but there is scientific evidence that it may increase the risk of disease in humans. We wanted it to have an outstanding taste and mouthfeel.
Too many all-natural protein powders taste mediocre at best, so we wanted to create something that you will actually look forward to drinking.
4. We wanted it to have an outstanding taste and mouthfeel.
Well, that’s exactly what we’ve done with Bio-Health Pasture Fed Protein.
Why Choose Bio-Health Pasture Fed Protein?
Grass Fed is more bio-available, which makes it more expensive than some options but guarantees a better-quality product, health, and muscle building.
You see, the three forms of whey protein sold are whey concentrate, isolate, and hydrolysate.
- Its on of the least processed form and cheapest to manufacture, and it contains some fat and lactose.
- Whey isolate is a form of whey protein that’s further processed to remove the fat and lactose.
Whey hydrolysate is form of whey protein that has been “hydrolyzed.”
This is a process that breaks down amino acid chains into smaller “chunks” for easier digestion.
A worthy whey protein powder is easy to spot:
- Whey concentrate, isolate, or hydrolysate is listed as the first ingredient
- The scoop size is relatively close to the amount of actual protein per scoop (It’ll never match because of sweetener, flavoring, anti-clumping agents, and other necessary substances in every serving.)
- It doesn’t contain any additional cheap amino acids
Bio-Health Pasture Fed Protein Comes from Hormone and Antibiotic-Free
It is 100% whey protein isolate, which makes it more expensive than some options but guarantees a better-quality product.
Many dairy cows are injected with a genetically modified growth hormone called recombinant bovine growth hormone, or rBGH , to increase milk production.
Studies suggest that consuming the milk from cows treated with such drugs may increase risk of disease in humans and that more research is needed.
Thus, we’ve chosen to avoid it.
We went a step further though and decided to source our whey protein.
The milk comes from cows that spend the majority of the year outside, eating grass.
Delicious with no artificial sweeteners, flavoring, food dyes, or fillers
It tastes great, and is naturally sweetened with stevia. While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health, and that more research is needed.
And while artificial flavors seem to be benign, they just aren’t necessary, natural flavors taste equally good.
We've chosen to stay on the safe side and use the natural sweeteners stevia and erythritol instead.Stevia is a sweet herb in the Chrysanthemum family, and research has shown that it can:
- Increase insulin sensitivity
- Help regulate blood glucose levels
- Offer anti-carcinogenic properties
- Decrease oxidative stress associated with eating large amounts of carbohydrates
- Reduce blood pressure and inflammation in the body
- Lower bad cholesterol levels
- Protect the kidneys
And in case you’re worried that naturally sweetened means horrible tasting, you can rest easy. We’ve taken special care to ensure that it tastes delicious whether it's mixed in water, milk, or dairy substitutes like rice, oat, and almond milk.
Bio-Health Protein contains absolutely no “label stuffing” ingredients. We have a simple standard that we live by: every active ingredient used in Bio-Health products must be backed by published scientific literature and must be integrated at clinically effective dosages.
