Whey Protein – Why Grass-fed Whey is Better for You

Grass fed logoTake one look at the protein powder aisle of your favorite Whole Foods Market or Vitamin Shoppe, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the abundant selection of meal replacements, performance enhancers and weight gainers that all promise more protein per serving than the competition. With so many products to choose from, how do you determine the best one?

Whey Protein has long been considered the king of protein powders due to its complete amino acid profile (it contains all 9 essential amino acids) and similarity to a human mother’s milk.  Because it is a by-product of cheese production, it is readily available in many countries around the world, but not all whey is made to the same high quality standards.

Here at Greens Plus, we demand two very important quality features in our +PlusShake Whey Protein:

First, we source only from countries that have banned the use of recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), a genetically-modified drug that is used to increase milk production in dairy cows. While its use is prevalent in the United States, many countries in Europe and across the British Commonwealth have banned rBGH, including England, Ireland, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.

Second, we source only from free-range, grass-fed cows. This insures that animals are raised in their natural environment and treated humanely. It also provides a diet rich in the essential nutrients required to produce the highest quality milk.

+PlusShake Meal Replacement powder contains New Zealand Whey Protein Concentrate and Sweet Irish Whey Protein Isolate, both from 100% grass-fed and rBGH-free sources, along with a powerful combination of whole food vitamins, minerals and performance-enhancing ingredients like colostrum, d-ribose and l-glutamine. +PlusShake is available at www.greensplus.com in delicious Raw Vanilla or Raw Chocolate flavor, or ask for it at your favorite local retailer.
