There is so much poor quality whey protein powder and water out there; we wanted to give you our recommendations for the Best Whey Protein. Here are the brand we recommend:
- Ion-X Protein Water
These brand are tested to ensure low levels of contaminants and have not been treated with high heat, which are very important when looking for a good Whey Protein powder and water Supplement. The Ion-X brand is pure whey protein, and contains additional, high quality ingredients that may be beneficial for your health.
Best Whey Protein:
A lot of so-called “experts” recommend whey protein isolates as the best whey protein, but we believe in keeping nutritional supplements as natural as possible. That’s why we think it’s better for your to consume your whey protein powder and water as a concentrate rather than an isolate. The concentrate still contains the fat and other important parts of the whey that help to boost immune function, like phosphatidylserine. In addition, without the fat, your body has a harder time assimilating the protein in the whey.
In addition, most whey protein isolate is exposed to acid processing, and that is not good. More information can be found on our Whey Protein Isolate Page.
Whey Protein powder and water Should Be Cold Processed with No Denatured or Damaged Protein
If you are looking for the best whey protein, the whey supplement you choose should be cold-processed, as heat can damage the micronutrients that boost the immune system, as well as the amino acids. This denatures the proteins and makes some of the nutrients totally unavailable to your body. That is a waste of money and calories at best, and at worst is adding toxins to your body!
Best Whey Protein: Grass Fed Cows & No Hormones
The best whey protein is grass fed with no hormones. Grass and pasture plants are a cow’s natural diet, and those dairy cows out eating pasture will produce milk and hence whey of a higher quality. There are many webpages that discuss rBGH and I won’t get into the pros and cons here, but suffice it to say that this hormone is not natural, and has been implicated in many serious health concerns including cancer, and we recommend using whey protein powder and water from rBGH-free cows.
Best Whey Protein: High Quality Ingredients in Addition to the Whey
Many companies add ingredients in addition to the whey protein, and there is nothing wrong with that, but if you are looking for the best whey protein, just make sure that they are natural, wholesome additions. Some that can be beneficial to your health include coconut oil and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and lecithin, preferably from sunflower seeds rather than soy which is often GMO.
