How to spot a good protein supplement...

Here are the signs you should be wary of


Good Proteins

NEWSFLAH… You don’t have to listen to a thousand people to learn what’s good protein. Do you know who is the BEST person to tell you if a protein supplement is good or not? Can you take a guess?

The answer is you! Here’s how you can know exactly which protein supplement is doing you good and which is not.

Generally speaking, human beings are not meant to be drinking cow’s milk or derivatives of it. If you have to do it, then you need to get smart about it. Your body is your best guide as to what is and what isn’t good for it.

When you try a protein supplement that is either not good for your body or just not good in general, you will see the signs immediately. It is just that you are not trained to spot these signs and this is perhaps why you may not realize what is good and what is not.

Let’s say you are really hungry and you buy a protein ball and eat it. It’s nice, sweet, filling and claims to be good for you. Upon a closer look, the ingredients are mainly syrup (sugar), cheap milk proteins and preservatives. Still, you try it and believe that it is doing you good or at least it’s better than having a chocolate bar. It may be! It can even be good for some people but not for all and you need to be able to distinguish between which protein is good for you and which is not.

The truth is in how you feel from 30 minutes to 10 hours after consumption and this “effect” is how you know if a protein supplement is doing you good or not; whatever format it is in. Here’s what to look out for to see if the protein supplement of your choice is doing your body good or not. If you see or feel any of the following signs up to 10 hours after consumption, the chances are your body is saying NO to that supplement:

  • Excess gas & bloating
  • Diarrhea or Constipation
  • Runny nose or sneezing
  • Irritability
  • Extreme tiredness
  • Problems concentrating
  • Headache
  • Lack of motivation
  • Insomnia in extreme cases

The best protein supplement today is still a powdered whey protein supplement such as LA Whey, no matter how many people tell you otherwise. A decent brand will mix well with water and should give you minimal if any side effects.
