The PB Mint was great and I’m happy because, I have 3 four pound bags of it lol

I found a great use for the natural organic unflavored whey proteins such as: Sweet Purity Organics and Protein 17. They work seamlessly in the flavored organic oatmeal! And add 22g of protein to your postworkout meal.

My favorite unflavored protein to mix in the oatmeal is the Brahman Whey, as it tastes a little better then the other unflavored natural proteins and it has the healthy healing Indian spices!

Brahman Whey claims to be Vanilla Flavor, but there isn’t enough flavor to get rid of the unflavored taste of the organic whey (spoiled milk taste) therefore; I classify it as unflavored with healing spices added. Which gives it a huge benefit over the others! It however; needs to come in a bigger size. 11 servings would be done in 11 days or in 5 1/2 on a bulk. 1 serving in each 1/2 cup of oatmeal daily.

Remember the reason we are using natural proteins is because this oatmeal comes flavored in a bunch of different creative flavors and we don’t want flavored protein to ruin the flavor. Other uses for unflavored proteins would be custom smoothies!

Brahman Whey Protein

20140322-175655.jpg
Brahman Whey all-natural ayurvedic whey protein supplement is a delicious alternative to other chemical-laden whey proteins on the market. Containing an amazing 20 grams of full spectrum protein in each serving, Brahman Whey mixes quickly and easily in any beverage.

Brahman Whey contains 5 treasured organic herbs used for centuries in the ancient tradition of Ayurveda to build muscle mass and overall body strength.

More information on each herb:

Organic Ashwagandha: Known as the the “ginseng of India”, this incredible herb promotes strength and stability in the physiology, and is also an anti-oxidant. It builds immunity and strength, and calms the mind and body.

Organic Shatavari: Possessing many of the benefits of Ashwagandha, it counterbalances its somewhat heating quality with it cooling effect, and augments their mutually beneficial effects on the body.

Organic Vidari Kandi: Is known in Ayurveda to support proper function of the male and female reproductive systems, is a nourishing tonic for promoting healthy muscle and nerve tissue, and strengthens and rejuvenates seniors and those with vata constitutions.

Organic Kapikacchu: Is used in Ayurveda to promote the proper function of the reproductive system in both men and women. It promotes calm and a healthy state of relaxation while supporting healthy nerves and proper function of the nervous system. Helps support potency, stamina, and a healthy libido and fertility.

Organic Gokshura: Gokshura is a rejuvenating tonic. A cooling and nourishing herb, it supports proper function of the reproductive system promoting virility and helps promote fertility. It calms the nerves, strengthens the body and is balancing for all doshas.

The unique synergy of these 5 organic herbs creates a strengthening effect on the mind, body, and spirit*.

Ingredients:

Whey protein isolate

Whey protein concentrate

Whey peptides

Stevia

Organic vanilla flavor

Organic french vanilla flavor

Organic ashwagandha

Organic Shatavari

Organic gokshura

Organic vidari kanda

Organic kapikacchu

Organic cinnamom

Organic cardamom

Non-GMO soy lecithin

Brahman Whey Protein

I can’t wait to try this later tonight stay tuned!!

Ok; well…

The Smell is non-existent
the mixability is 9/10 a little grainy residue in glass
the taste is 8/10 a tad better than Sweet Purity Organics and Protein 17. (no aftertaste)

I can’t wait to see if it works with the added spices. They should have added a tad more Cinnamon and Cardamom.

One thing I don’t like is there is no scoop inside. The directions say 3 heaping tablespoons, so if you don’t have one handy you have to go find one.
I use this as an additional protein serving at night 2hrs post workout and I use 2tbsp, so it will last longer.

I tried mixing with my oatmeal today, but It had almost zero taste in my oatmeal and I don’t like plain oatmeal!

Future Post Coming Soon: myoatmeal.com when it arrives I will add all of my natural proteins recently reviewed to the mix with the exception of Whey Natural USA as it is not to be heated.

Look for it! the results from all the tests will be there!

**Update** March 24th 2014
I wish they made a Chocolate with natural cocoa and what is organic Vanilla flavor? Is it real Vanilla bean?


Supplement Review: SFH Pure Whey – Natural Whey

20140316-053621.jpg

Whey protein is a pure, natural, high quality protein from cow’s milk. Our whey protein is derived from grass fed, free range cows, which are never treated with antibiotics or bovine growth hormones. It is a rich source of the essential amino acids needed on a daily basis by the body.
Our proteins hydrate well in water and are absorbed very well by your body. All whey proteins differ in lactose content, fats and calcium. Pure Whey has low lactose content; is low in cholesterol; and high in free calcium.
It is an excellent protein choice for all ages including children and provides a number of benefits in areas including sports nutrition, weight management, immune support, bone health, and general wellness.
If you are concerned about your child’s food choices, Pure Whey, with 82% protein content is an excellent choice to help kids grow up healthy.
sfh.com

It smells amazing! Fresh vanilla smell! The powder is super fine and mixes easily.

It contains sunflower lecithin instead of soy lecithin to help it mix. Something Protein 17 could have added.

It contains natural vanilla but not enough! Could use a tad bit more Vanilla!

It tastes ok. Not as good as Body Logix and no where near as bad as unflavored! It still had that distinct natural whey sour milk taste but the vanilla helped a lot! The Body Logix Vanilla had it a little also.

The chocolate is slightly better tasting! It wasn’t too bad!

This product is good, but it’s not the best thing that SFH has to offer! Just wait and see!! There’s more 😉


Supplement Review: Natural Protein: Protein 17 – Organic Grass Fed Unflavored Whey Protein by Body Uprising Enterprises *

20140310-103050.jpg

This is my Historic 500th post! Also; today is the 3 year Anniversary of my blog! Thank you to my Cousin AJ for getting me started!

The one thing I don’t like about Protein 17 is their infomercial looking website. It kind of hurts their credibility.

Tests:

Plain shake with water
In my cheesecake recipe
In oatmeal

Protein 17:

Take 2 minutes now to learn:

1. Why you could be wasting your money on one of the many protein powders which are very heavily processed and contain “controversial” additives such as genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) and artificial sweeteners.

2. How to choose a protein powder which ensures the best nutrition for your body (organic whey is only part of it).

Does your whey protein come from factory-farmed, hormone-treated cows?

What most people DO know
Having a higher protein intake can promote health and muscle gains

Whey protein has the highest biological value (proportion of proteins which can be absorbed into the body) of any protein
What most people DON’T know
The more natural your food, the more lean muscle and the less body-fat you’ll probably have (this is because natural foods are assimilated better into the body)

Toxins that you ingest can impair the fat burning and muscle building processes

This is where the problems start for most people who use protein powders. They make a good decision to use protein powders to increase their protein intake but they don’t know the red flags to look for in the proteins they choose.

More muscle thru better health
We all know that working out and eating right to build muscle and lose fat can be a real challenge. We know that hard training and healthy natural foods help us to build muscle and lose bodyfat but what many people haven’t realized is that…

Unless you eat organic, muscle building and fat loss can be even more difficult.

Unless you eat organic, muscle building and fat loss can be even more difficult.

The reason is simple but often overlooked.

Health, muscle gain and fat loss depend on a complex interplay of chemical processes and hormones. When we eat non-organic foods (which may contain pesticides, fertilizers, hormones or heavy metals), these delicate processes may become unbalanced.

In simple terms:
Non-organic foods can stop our bodies working properly and many people find that they build muscle and lose fat simply by eating the same foods but switching to organic.

So if you are serious about building a strong, lean, healthy body, you should ideally stop consuming non-organic, processed protein powders and use a pure whey like Protein 17.

There’s more good news too:
It’s a myth that eating organic costs more—it can actually cost you less!

Many people report spending less money on food when they eat organic.

Why?

Simple – it’s likely that they get more nutrients (from the organic products) so their bodies crave less food. Therefore, they eat less.

Here’s an example:
Would your body benefit more from 20g of highly-processed, artificially-sweetened protein or 10g of minimally-processed, organic, pure whey protein?

This is what you haven’t been told
Many commercial protein powders:

Contain very controversial additives including artificial sweeteners (many health experts believe these could be dangerous), genetically-modified-organisms (also highly controversial – the effects on humans not really known), fillers (additives just to make the powder bigger so that there is more profit in it).
Heavily processed whey protein powder.

Are heavily processed potentially leaving the delicate immune-supporting and muscle building components of the whey damaged.
Are treated with ACID (this is how casein is actually made).
Are treated with SOY just to make them mix well. Check the ingredients label on your protein powders and look for “soy lecithin”. It’s in almost all protein powders.

What’s the problem with soy?

1) Many health experts now consider soy to be an ANTI-nutrient because it prevents the body absorbing other nutrients

2) it’s thought to be estrogenic which means that it can cause an increase in female hormones in the body (which can make muscle building and fat loss much harder as well as other potential health complications)

3) soy is often genetically modified and sourced from cows who are fed grain (because it’s cheap but grain is not their natural food) (unlike pure, natural grass fed whey protein).
Many cows are injected with Bovine Growth Hormone (BGH) and antibiotics to make them produce more milk… is this where your whey comes from?

Cows who are treated with antibiotics and hormones.

Does it come from whey protein sourced from China or India (which is thought to have much lower quality control standards than Europe and the US).
Scary isn’t it?

Follow the 7 critical rules when choosing your whey:
1. Whey protein concentrate that is certified organic and comes from cows that graze on organic grass pastures.
Do NOT accept whey made from factory-farmed, grain-fed or corn-fed cows.

2. Cows that are not treated with artificial hormones.
Do not accept whey from cows who are treated with artificial hormones. Many non-organic farms treat dairy cows with rBGH (Bovine Growth Hormone) to increase milk production. This hormone is highly controversial and actually been banned in many European countries.

3. Cold treated.
Do NOT accept high-heat processed whey. Most whey protein is processed with very high temperatures. This can damage the delicate immune-boosting properties and amino acids naturally found in whey.

4. Whey protein organic concentrate from cows that graze on organic grass pastures.
Do NOT accept whey protein isolate, hydrolysate or isolate/concentrate blends, even if they claim to be grass-fed whey protein. Isolates/hydrolysates are proteins that have heavily can damage their nutritional cofactors (see below for a more detailed explanation).

5. Whey protein concentrate that is free from acid treatments.
Do NOT accept whey that has been acid treated or is ion exchanged. These methods are are cheaper (this is why they are used), but they may damage the protein.

6. Free from artificial sweeteners.
Do not accept protein powders that are contain artificial sweeteners like Aspartame, Sucralose or Acesulfame K. These sweeteners are highly controversial often used to mask the very bitter taste of inferior acid processed whey.

7. Only put pure, clean, whey protein organic concentrate in your body.

Know the origin of your whey protein.
Some top protein powder brands use whey sourced from China or India. As you can imagine quality standards vary significantly from country to country.

Choose a protein that is minimally-processed and guaranteed to have the exceptional nutritional value.

A whey that has a full spectrum amino acid profile and all of the nutritional cofactors still intact.
At last, a protein powder you can trust!

“I thought whey protein isolate was better?”
Whey Protein Isolates, Hydrolysates and Isolate/Concentrate blends have been well marketed but the reality is that they are more heavily processed powders in which the proteins are potentially damaged and many of the beneficial components of the whey have been removed (unlike grass fed whey protein).

You see, Whey Protein Concentrate is also known as WPC80.

All WPC 80 means is that it’s 80 percent protein.

The remaining 20% consists of beneficial nutrients and minerals that exist naturally in milk that your body will use to help absorb & process the whey optimally.

So why do manufacturers remove these??

Simple.

The fitness business knows people are fixated on the amount of protein per serving so if they can list a slightly higher number on the label by reducing these nutrients, they will do it.

So, that’s the difference between an isolates/hydrolysates and concentrate:

The isolates / hydrolysates have lower levels of certains nutrients just so the label can list a few extra grams of protein per serving.

(Note: be wary of anyone advertising “raw whey”. It is against the law to sell raw whey in many countries. Protein 17 is not raw but it is minimally-processed to maintain the quality of the amino acids and the nutrients).

If you really want the fastest health and muscle gains, make sure you are using the purest, grass-fed, organic natural whey protein concentrate powder.

This protein is totally stripped down! Not even Soy Lecithin to help it mix better.

I put it in a glass and that’s what happened. It says use a blender on the bottle, but I refuse to use a blender! So I tried a shaker bottle next and it’s nasty plain yuk! So I added natural cocoa powder, a dash of cinnamon and a tsp of xylitol. It wasn’t bad and it mixed smooth!
