"What to Eat with Breakfast to Help Build
Your Muscle Naturally?"

You’d need to eat about 16 eggs to get your daily quota of this muscle-building amino acid. But make this super-food part of your New Year’s routine, and you'll get those 8 muscle-building grams you need in just a few ounces...*

Top athletes and those ‘dead-serious’ about enhancing their health and fitness never stop searching for and demanding better ways to improve their performance and overall well-being.

Swimmer Butterfly Race
Serious athletes never stop searching for ways to gain that extra
performance edge… from the fuel they need to
their training regimen.

I certainly can relate to this drive and attitude because I share it as well. I last seriously competed when I ran a 2:50 marathon in the early 80s. I have long ago stopped competing and have abandoned traditional cardio for interval Peak Fitness exercise and strength training to stay fit.

But I continue to demand the best possible all-natural solutions for building muscle and for peak performance.  

I need to stay fit as I seek to uncover the truth about natural health solutions to people around the world.

Athletes may search the world over for more efficient ways to train… and better ways to optimize their diet and maximize the fuel they need. Some athletes weigh their food in an effort to achieve what they believe to be the delicate balance between consuming enough fuel calories without sacrificing optimal performance weight.

I’m not sure how many athletes actually weigh their food, but this clearly illustrates the passion many top athletes share when searching for that extra edge they need to boost performance -- from pro athletes to Olympians to serious body builders.

If you’re an athlete at any level, or someone serious about enhancing your nutrition and overall performance, my team and I have helped formulate a unique combination of natural ingredients that can potentially give you the edge you’ve been looking for.*

More on this coming up…

Building Stronger Muscle, One Muscle Fiber at a Time…

Leucine is a branched chain amino acid found in certain foods.

It causes protein to be created and builds your muscle by its signaling of the mTOR (Mammalian Target of Rapamycin) mechanism.*

However, you need FAR more leucine than the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) to reap this muscle-building benefit.* In fact, you need massive amounts…

So where can you find leucine?

You'll find the highest concentrations of leucine and other branched chain amino acids (BCAA) in dairy products – especially quality cheeses and whey protein.

Even when getting leucine from your natural food supply, it's often wasted or used as a building block instead of an anabolic agent. So to create the correct anabolic environment, you need to boost leucine consumption way beyond mere maintenance levels.

Unfortunately, to get far and away your most competitive edge by exceeding maintenance levels is challenging. Here's why…

Based on nitrogen-balance measurements, the requirement for leucine that maintains your current body protein is 1-3 grams daily.

But to optimize its anabolic pathway, you need 8g - 16g daily.

This means that to reach 8 grams for anabolic purposes, you need the following humungous amounts of food:

  • a pound and a half of chicken
  • three pounds of pork
  • more than 1 pound of almonds (over 3000 calories)
  • 16 eggs
  • ½ pound of raw cheddar cheese

But remarkably, you only need about 3oz of high-quality whey.

Clearly, supplementing with whey protein can effectively allow you to get that 8g or more of leucine to build strong competitive muscle, without consuming freaky amounts of food and calories.*

Could This Be the Nutritious Edge Top Athletes Are Looking For?

What's the Right Protein Powder for You?

Miracle Whey Immune Boosting Protein Powder Miracle Whey™: Your choice for an immune supporting protein powder.* Miracle Whey™ is, in my opinion, the best tasting and comes in the largest variety of flavors: vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, blueberry, banana, peanut butter (made from organic peanuts), original, and maple.
Pure Power Protein Mercola Pure Power Protein: is a premium product designed to boost your overall health and fitness levels.* It contains a unique blend of high-quality whey protein, chia seeds, and probiotics to give you an edge over the competition or if you're more demanding about enhancing your overall health.*
Pro-Optimal Whey Pro-Optimal Whey: If you're looking for a multipurpose protein powder -- one that has additional vitamins and minerals, plus a full spectrum enzyme, then Pro-Optimal Whey is your choice.*
Pea Protein Powder Pea Protein: Perfect if you’re a vegetarian, lactose intolerant, or if you’re just looking to vary your protein source.

When it comes to building healthy lean muscle, many athletes swear by whey protein.

On my site alone, I offer three natural whey protein powders and even a third based on pea protein (for vegetarians) to satisfy different needs.

Personally, after my morning workout, I start every day with a tasty whey protein shake I make myself.

Sometimes I fast until early afternoon when I do my workout, but I always have my shake after my workout to give my muscles the fuel they need.

And even though I’m very pleased with the natural quality and taste of the whey protein shake I make myself today, I’m always thinking about what other natural ingredients and nutrients could be added to make it even better… in this case, for demanding athletes and those real serious about regular exercise.

Well, first off, to make anything better, we need to go back to square one to see how we got there in the first place.

With whey protein powder, there are 9 essential elements my team and I previously identified that still hold true for selecting any high-quality whey protein. In fact, the whey protein powder I use in my post-workout shake today was developed based on these criteria.

 

9 Basic Essentials Every Whey Protein Powder Should Have


To me, any whey protein powder is simply missing the mark unless it’s made from and follows these ‘9 Essentials’ at a minimum…

Grass-fed cows' whey
The most nutritious whey protein comes from pasture-fed, cows.
  1. All-natural, pasture-fed cows' whey, NOT pesticide-treated, grain-fed cows' whey – Compared to grain-fed cows, pasture-fed cows produce whey that…
    • Contains an impressive amino acid and immuno-supportive nutrient profile
    • Is rich in healthy fats – lipolic acid and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid)
  2. GMO-free
    • Always look for and choose whey that is GMO-free
  3. Cold processed to protect the nutrients in their natural state, NOT heat processed – The majority of whey is heat processed which…
    • Makes the whey acidic and nutritionally deficient
    • Damages the immuno-supportive micronutrients and amino acids
    • Makes whey inadequate for consumption
  4. Acid-free processing, NOT Acid / Ion Exchange Processing – The bottom line is that Acid/Ion Exchange processing…
    • Is a less healthful, cheaper process than acid-free processing
    • Denatures amino acid profiles by using acids and chemicals to separate the whey from the fats
  5. Whey protein concentrate, NOT protein isolates – Protein isolates are proteins stripped away from their nutritional cofactors. I have issues with isolates because...
    • Most isolates are exposed to acid processing
    • Your body cannot assimilate proteins in isolated form
    • Due to over-processing, isolates are deficient in key amino acids and nutritional cofactors
  6. Sweetened naturally, NOT artificially, and low carb – Many whey powders…
    • Are artificially sweetened making them undesirable if you have sugar sensitivities, or you want to avoid putting synthetic sweeteners or flavors in your body
    • Tend not to be low glycemic and low carb
    • Contain sugar alcohols, glycerin, or gluten, and some even use high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as a sweetener
  7. Maximum biological value, NOT compromised or damaged – Most whey proteins provide some benefit. But, due to the ingredients, the source of the whey, the concentration of beneficial nutrients, or the type of processing, many whey products simply don't deliver what they promise.
  8. You want whey that…

    • Retains its maximum biological value
    • Contains all the key amino acids, cofactors, and beneficial micronutrients present and intact rather than compromised or damaged
    • Is not lacking any amino acids or other essential nutrients
  9. Easy to Digest, NOT Causing Digestive Stress – Many whey products contain long-chain fatty acids which are hard to digest and require bile acids to absorb.
  10. You want a whey protein powder that…

    • Contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCT)
    • Is easily absorbed, digested quickly, and is utilized as energy without causing digestive stress
    • Ideally, contains coconut oil – one of the best sources of MCT
  11. Free from Toxic Heavy Metals or at Such Low Levels NOT to be a Health Risk – You want to avoid protein powders, both whey and non-whey, that contain dangerous levels of heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic. Any high concentration of heavy metals consumed over time could lead to serious health consequences.  
  12. In fact, a Consumer Reports' evaluation showed how some leading brands of protein powders exceeded United States Pharmacopoeia's (USP) recommended safety limits for certain heavy metals.

So, these are the basic ‘9 Essentials’ my team and I have used to date to filter out any whey protein powders not up to our highest natural nourishment standards.

However, I know we can continue to add to these ‘9 Essentials’ to enhance what’s needed even more for athletes and folks who exercise on a regular basis. I’ll have more of that unique solution coming up, but first let’s review…

How High-Quality Whey Protein Can Give Your Health and Fitness a Boost*

By using the ‘9 Essentials’ to obtain a high-quality whey protein powder, you can take advantage of a variety of health benefits… because top-quality whey protein potentially…

Natural whey protein powder helps boost your energy *
High-quality, natural whey protein powder helps boost
your energy and promotes muscle strength,
endurance, and recovery.*
  • Promotes your muscle strength, endurance, and recovery*
  • Helps to preserve lean body tissue (particularly during exercise) as it delivers bioavailable amino acids and cysteine*
  • Boosts your energy and supports your body’s optimal metabolic rate*
  • Helps your insulin work more effectively… helps support blood sugar levels already within the normal range*
  • Promotes optimal intake of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals needed for your optimal wellness*
  • Supports your immune system (as it contains immunoglobulins)*
  • Helps maintain your blood pressure levels already within the normal range*

These are just some of the health advantages you can benefit from if you stick to whey protein based on my ‘9 Essentials.’

And the current protein powder I regularly use, Miracle Whey™, delivers on all this. But what’s needed to take whey protein powder to an even higher level… a level by which demanding athletes will be rewarded with even more health and fitness benefits?

Why Good Taste is So Important

Delicious whey protein powder
Without a satisfying, delicious taste,
athletes won't come back for more.
That's why I've spent so much time
working with whey powder formulators
to get the taste just right.

First of all, when it comes to developing any whey protein powder, I cannot emphasize the importance of taste enough. Despite any added benefits, if it doesn’t taste good, even athletes won’t come back for more.

You can rest assured that any whey powder I offer on my site will not contain any artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols, glycerin, fructose, or gluten.

So, the challenge is how to naturally sweeten the powder just enough to make folks want to continue to use it.

That’s why I’ve spent many hours working with natural whey protein powder producers to make sure the taste is just right… as is the case with my current line of protein powders.

However, there’s some confusion out there about one particular natural sweetener that needs addressing…  


Maltodextrin – Make Sure You Pick the Right One!!

Most people aren’t aware there are two different types of maltodextrin. If you don’t know the difference you could be in for a very unpleasant surprise -- so let me help explain the difference.

The naturally-occurring digestive resistant maltodextrin used to enhance flavor and provide other health benefits is a far-cry from the more commonly used synthetic varieties.

The critical distinction here is “naturally-occurring.” Synthetic variants of maltodextrin do exist and are often used as cheap sweeteners in protein powders. I purposely avoid synthetic maltodextrin because it…

  • Is artificially created when acid/enzymes are applied to starch
  • Can potentially raise insulin levels
  • May cause depletion of your body’s vitamins and minerals
  • Typically is GMO (genetically modified)
  • Is not digestive resistant

Instead, the naturally-occurring digestive resistant maltodextrin is…

  • Classified as water soluble fiber*
  • Resistant to digestion*
  • Low glycemic *
  • GMO-free*
  • Rich in pre-biotic food to support healthy gut bacteria*

So, you can see the significant differences between synthetic maltodextrin and the naturally-occurring maltodextrin. Not only does naturally occurring digestive resistant maltodextrin enhance the taste, it also provides other health benefits as well… a win-win scenario.

And once again, you can rest assured that I would never approve anything synthetic to go into the very whey protein powder I use, or plan on using myself on a daily basis… even if it made the taste irresistible.

How a Centuries-Old Cucumber ‘Cousin’ Enhances Taste

There’s another sweetener I highly recommend… and that’s Luo Han. This all-natural sweetener is a cousin of the cucumber and a member of the gourd family. And from a health and wellness standpoint, it’s been shown to not affect your blood sugar levels.*

Luo Han extract has been used traditionally in China for centuries. But what brought it to the attention of American food manufacturers was the discovery of a secret locked in the fruit extract – called mogrosides.

As it happens, mogrosides are 300 times sweeter than sucrose… but contain hardly any calories and don’t spike your blood sugar.

These mogrosides are part of a group of compounds called triterpene glycosides. They taste sweet, but your body treats them differently than carbohydrates. Insulin levels don’t rise… they aren’t broken apart to produce energy… and you don’t put on the pounds when consuming them.

This should give you a pretty good idea why I like this sweetener so much and recommend its use in whey protein powder. It’s simply another piece of the puzzle to naturally sweeten the whey to create a balanced more desirable flavor.

Whey Concentrate or Whey Isolate? – Pick the Wrong One
and You’re Asking for Trouble

An area I feel that’s critically important whenever developing an elite brand of whey protein powder is whether to use whey concentrate or whey isolate in the formula.

This is an area that often gets glossed over and one I feel deserves more attention. And talk about an area of major confusion… many supposed experts favor whey isolate. But to me, they’ve not thoroughly done their homework on this.

And why is that?

Here are some of the reasons I’m NOT in favor of using isolates in any protein powder… because whey isolate…

  • Is derived from pasteurized dairy and processed with heat and acid.
  • Goes through a process that removes the fat which in turn removes important components of whey’s immunological properties… healthful properties such as phospholipids, phosphatidylserine, and cortisol.
  • Cheats you out of IgG immunoglobulins, which are excellent sources of glutamine and cysteine bound to fat globules.
  • Hinders your body from effectively assimilating proteins in this isolated form.
  • Is deficient in key amino acids and nutritional cofactors.

The bottom line with whey isolate… if you over-process the protein and remove the fat, you’re left with clearly inferior whey protein.

That’s why I promote whey concentrate… from raw unpasteurized milk… from pasture-fed cows… and cold processed to avoid over-processing and heat damage.

Why You Should Avoid Soy Like the Plague

Many whey protein powders are not GMO-free. And often at the heart of this matter is a cheap soy-based compound called soy lecithin.

If you look closely at a protein powder label and see soy lecithin listed in any form, this is something I strongly suggest you avoid. Sunflower lecithin is much preferred over soy lecithin. But if you can confirm that the soy lecithin used in the product is organic and non-GMO, it is ok, but not nearly as healthful as your whey protein should be.

There’s little doubt in my mind GMO soy lecithin is not an ingredient I would accept in anything I consume… including whey protein powder. I strongly recommend you take this approach as well.

Natural Fiber – An Often Overlooked Nutrient

Now that I’ve identified several ingredients to avoid and the importance of all-natural sweeteners in any whey protein mix, what about other ingredients that could potentially enhance it?

First off, I recommend taking a closer look at the amount of fiber included in your protein powder. It’s important to realize how fiber is a healthful ingredient for your digestive and elimination systems… an added help to your overall regularity.*

And by helping keep your digestive system ‘regular,’ the right kind and amount of natural fiber can potentially help…

  • Support your overall weight management*
  • Maintain blood sugar levels already in the normal range*
  • Detox your body on a regular basis*

I believe natural fiber content in whey protein powder would be worth the extra benefits to athletes and health-conscious folks alike. So, be sure to take a closer look at any protein powder label for evidence of a natural healthy supply of fiber within.

How Maintaining a Healthy Gut Can Enhance Your Protein Benefits

One challenge when optimizing protein intake from whey is protein gets digested in your stomach. This means that a large percentage of amino acids may not be fully utilized and may not reach your lower intestine.

Keeping your gut as healthy as possible is essential in maximizing your benefits from natural protein. And that’s where high-quality probiotics come in.

By introducing billions of tiny microflora (‘good’ bacteria) into your digestive system in the form of probiotics, you can help…

  • Maintain your ideal ‘good’ to ‘other’ bacteria ratio*
  • Support your production of B vitamins and vitamin K*
  • Promote mineral absorption*
  • Support carbohydrate digestion via probiotic enzymes*
  • Aid your metabolism and the breakdown of toxins*
  • Maintain appropriate bowel transit time*
  • Support your immune system function by helping remove toxins*
  • Produce lactic acid to support a healthy colon pH balance*

But, there’s even more probiotics can do for you when it comes to protein.

Probiotics can also help your body synthesize leucine, which you need for muscle building. So, not only can high-quality probiotics keep your gut healthy, when combined with natural whey protein, probiotics can enhance muscle development.*

Sounds like a win-win scenario to me.

Wouldn’t you agree?

Now, if only someone would find a way to combine both natural whey protein and high-quality probiotics into the same powder… that would be something.

My Five Additional ‘Essentials’ Take Protein Powder
to a Whole New Performance Level*

Whey protein with fiber, probiotics, and calcium
Adding more fiber, probiotics, and calcium to whey
protein helps top athletes better balance muscle
building, contraction, and recovery.

At this point, to achieve a more optimal level of whey protein powder geared more for athletes, I really feel that the ‘9 Essentials’ can be used as the baseline and tweaked with additional nutrients and ingredients (as well as making sure certain risky ingredients are not included).

Based on what I introduced above, here are five additional criteria I believe are necessary to give the ‘9 Essentials’ an added boost…

  • Put even more emphasis on good taste – Natural sweeteners like digestive resistant maltodextrin and Luo Han fit the bill.
  • Look for more fiber – Keeping yourself ‘regular’ can be key to maintaining top performance levels.*
  • Include probiotics in the formula – Helps to synthesize leucine to enhance building muscle and helps you maintain a healthy gut.*
  • Focus on mineral content – In this case, calcium, which plays a key role in muscle contraction and is necessary for exercise recovery.*
  • Avoid soy lecithin – This is a waste product laden with solvents and pesticides and should be shunned at all costs.

When these five are added to the ‘9 Essentials,’ we now have a minimum of 14 selection requirements I believe are needed for the optimal whey protein powder.

And once again, I’ve taken most of your guesswork out of finding such a difficult-to-find protein powder. That’s why I helped formulate a unique whey protein to meet and exceed the additional 5 requirements. I’ve yet to see another powder as good as Mercola Pure Power Protein that satisfies and exceeds my challenging criteria.

As you already discovered, a high-quality whey protein is not only dependent on the natural ingredients that go into the formula, it’s also dependent on the right kind of processing to yield optimal nutritious results.

In developing Mercola Pure Power Protein, one challenge that presented itself was how to include more natural fiber in the powder.

This was not a small task because the natural solution I wanted the most came from chia seeds… a food high in fiber, protein, and essential oils. This has one of the best combinations of water soluble and insoluble fibers on the planet.

Chia was a staple for Incan, Mayan, and Aztec cultures.

“Chia” is even the Mayan word for “strength”, and Chia seeds used to be referred to as "Indian Running Food" because they are so energizing. Apache and Aztec warriors sustained themselves by bringing the seeds along while on conquests.

The major issue faced by the manufacturing process was how to grind the chia seeds and add them to the formula without having them go rancid.

This is where a high-quality manufacturer became invaluable – with processes focused on avoiding rapid oxidation and rancification. Many producers of protein powder address this issue by using unnatural synthetic preservatives.

Using synthetic preservatives of any kind are unacceptable to me. You already know my commitment to using only natural ingredients in Mercola Pure Power Protein. And that totally applies to any manufacturing process.

My manufacturer of choice has not only solved the preservation problem in their innovative development of the O2Bä Peroxidation Blocker and CO2 DeepExtractä processes, these application specific systems…

  • Completely avoid the use of synthetic preservative chemicals – Only use 100% natural and non-GMO ingredients
  • Are designed to protect sensitive essential oils like the ones present in chia seeds
  • Combine highly effective botanical ingredients to prevent the destructive oxidative, photochemical, and rancification reactions involved in chia seed grinding and processing
  • Improve efficacy – Isolation of key components potentially allows higher dosage and targeted performance
  • Potentially enhance the shelf-life and stability of natural supplements

By naturally protecting the chia seeds and essential oils from rancidity and oxidation, Mercola Pure Power Protein contains added fiber without compromising shelf-life and longevity.

 All Natural Ingredients Working Together to Provide a Super Protein Powder Not Available Until NOW

To show you the extraordinary nutrients incorporated into Mercola Pure Power Protein, let’s take a deeper dive into a sample of the natural ingredients and their potential benefits….

Pure whey protein for athletes
Mercola Pure Power Protein…
nutritious ingredients combined into
a unique formula ready to help give
athletes the performance edge
they've been looking for.*

Immuno Whey™ – Non-denatured, cold pressed pasture-fed cows’ whey protein… needed to support athletic performance, muscle recovery and buildup.*  

This is the first time we have been able to introduce this higher quality whey protein. It is a very serious upgrade with immune supporting components.*

  • Organic Sweet Whey – Non-denatured natural whey… helps replenish essential elements, electrolytes, and trace minerals lost during exercise.*
  • Natural sweeteners – Both digestive resistant maltodextrin and Luo Han used to enhance the overall taste and provide other natural benefits.*
  • Omega 3 EFA (N-3) – Plant bases ALA will help complement any animal-based sources of omega-3, like krill you may be taking. These essential fatty acids which can play an important role in muscle recuperation and buildup.*
  • Chia Seeds – Regarded by botanical experts as a super food, chia seeds are high in protein, fiber, and essential oils. Due to its high fiber content, chia helps support weight management, blood sugar levels, detoxification, and regularity.*
  • Coconut MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) – Medium-chain fatty acids have been shown to be an ideal muscle fuel. MCT can replenish muscle energy without raising insulin, support weight management, and promote lean muscle gain.* 
  • Sunflower Seed Lecithin – Unlike soy lecithin which is typically GMO, sunflower lecithin is 100% chemical-free and non-GMO… provides phospholipds and nutrients to support muscle performance and increase resiliency to stress.*
  • Probiotics – 15 billion count per serving of blended ‘good’ bacteria… helps keep your gut healthy and helps synthesize leucine to support muscle development.*

If you’re a demanding athlete and serious about the healthiest whey protein powder I’ve help develop to date, you must be impressed by the ingredients that make up Mercola Pure Power Protein.

How Three Unique Ingredients Work Together to Deliver the Ultimate Nourishment*

In many cases in natural nutrition, the sum of combinations of natural foods and supplements can be greater than the individual nutrient parts.

I believe that to be the case with Mercola Pure Power Protein. The unique combination of natural super foods… whey protein, chia seeds, and probiotics potentially…

  • Provides a high biological value – The combination of all three super foods yields high absorption and digestion of protein powder.*
  • Maximizes immune support – Made with Immuno Whey™ which is especially high in immuno components to help counteract oxidative stress caused by exercise.*
  • Enhances muscle nourishment – Provides key nutrients required for nourishing muscles and triggering lean muscle gain.*

The exclusive triple-power of natural whey protein, chia seeds, and probiotics is like no other I’ve seen in satisfying demanding athletes looking for the optimal protein powder.

 Ready to Get an Edge on the Competition?

If you’re an athlete serious about gaining an edge on the competition, or just someone more demanding about enhancing your overall health, Mercola Pure Power Protein is something I strongly recommend.

There are many choices out there for you, but how many can even come close to making it through my selection gauntlet? I can assure you I’ve only found ONE so far.

The unique combination of natural high-quality whey protein, chia seeds, and probiotics cannot simply be found today.

And what is the underlying reason for that?

The bottom line is that my team and I personally helped develop this formula ourselves… we simply weren’t satisfied with what we found in the marketplace.

Once again, I want to reiterate that many folks may still feel that Miracle Whey™ is all they need… and that’s fine and quite acceptable based on their needs. 

Not everyone may be as demanding as you, and or even need the ultimate whey protein powder. I’m simply offering more protein power choices on my site to provide health-conscious people the flexibility they need… regardless of their health and fitness levels.

Mercola Pure Power Protein is a premium product and the price of $46.97 is more than Miracle Whey™. But that’s still only $2.14 per day and if you’re only satisfied with the highest level of whey protein powder, then I believe you’ll come to realize it’s a relatively small price to pay.

If you seriously want the most amazing all-natural whey protein powder to boost your overall health and fitness levels,* order Mercola Pure Power Protein today and take advantage of all it has to offer.

And with my guarantee (see below), you have little to risk with giving this extraordinary protein powder a try. Order Now!

Frequently Asked Questions
Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions
  1. Q: How is Pure Power Protein different from other 'outside' whey products?
  2. A: Several factors distinguish Pure Power Protein from many of the other products on the market. Here are what some our customers tell us are important to them:

    • Made of pasture-fed cows' whey, never pesticide-treated or grain-fed.
    • Cold-processed. Many products on the market are heat-treated, compromising nutritional value.
    • Made from whey protein concentrates – not isolates (a compound separated from the whole food, sometimes made in a lab)
  3. Q: Does Pure Power Protein have any soy in it? How about GMOs?
  4. A: Pure Power Protein is both soy-free and GMO-free.

  5. Q: How is Pure Power Protein different from other Mercola whey powders?
  6. A: Pure Power Protein is a best-in-class product designed to support your overall health and fitness levels.* It contains a unique blend of high-quality whey protein, chia seeds, and probiotics, for those who demand an edge over their competition – or just an edge over their health.*

    Pure Power Protein contains high levels of muscle-boosting leucine for benefits that reach beyond mere maintenance of muscles.* It can give you 8g or more of leucine without having to consume large amounts of protein and calories.*

  7. Q: Is Pure Power Protein only for body builders or people who work out all the time?
  8. A: You do not need to be a body builder or work out incessantly to enjoy the benefits of Pure Power Protein.* It may also be the perfect choice for you if you're trying to make great new strides in your health and fitness, and want to ramp it up quickly.*

  9. Q: What does pasture-fed mean?
  10. A: Pasture-fed means the cows are free to roam so they can eat the healthy grasses Nature intended them to eat. They are not cooped up in tight or unsanitary conditions.
