Pressbox (Press Release) -
Matt Smith, a former all american collegiate soccer player turned nutritionist and founder of The Healthy Whey Blog, has launched a campaign calling all athletes, health conscious, and dieters alike to take advantage of the amazing health benefits of whey protein powder. However, he makes strong note that choosing the correct whey protein powder is vitally important in order to maximize whey's nutritional benefits.
"It is not enough to simply choose any old whey protein powder from your local supermarket" states Matt passionately. "With more and more research being done about whey protein's amazing makeup and nutritional advantages, people everywhere are jumping on the whey bandwagon for good reason. However, people need to understand that they way in which their whey protein is produced makes a dramatic difference in the amount of beneficial enzymes and nutrients that it retains."
The Healthy Whey Blog caters to anyone who is health conscious and trying to decide which whey protein to choose. The information does not stop with just whey protein as Matt often writes about other nutritional topics as well.
As someone passionate about nutrition and proper food production, Matt is urging people and food producers to begin using only whey protein that is derived from milk produced by open pasture grass fed cows. Matt states, "Time and time again we see the amazing nutritional superiority of grass fed products over grain fed cow products. This is especially true with whey protein powder as it is a fragile protein that contains many excellent enzymes for health. Whey protein is a derivative of cow's milk so the way that the cow is raised and fed is very important. In fact, grass fed whey actually contains the good cholesterol known to lower bad cholesterol, has fewer calories, and is stocked with vitamins, minerals, and tons of antioxidants not found in grain fed cows."
With whey protein powder's popularity on the rise, it is quite common to find it in any grocery store or health store. The difficulty comes in finding whey protein that is produced with the consumer in mind rather than profit margins. Unfortunately, it is much cheaper and easier to produce low quality whey protein. Whey protein is most beneficial when it is derived from grass fed cows and is undenatured. Undenatured simply means that the whey was produced using low heat to ensure that the healthy enzymes and antioxidants stay intact giving the consumer maximum health benefits.
