WHY DO WE NEED GOOD AMOUNTS OF PROTEIN IN OUR DIET?

High quality protein is essential for normal brain function, hormone balance and energy needs.

Dietary protein is the source for most all neurotransmitter production in the brain.  These neurotransmitters are necessary for memory, concentration, healthy emotions and normal sleep.

Some amino acids that are derived from protein are responsible for thyroid hormones, insulin, and hormones coming from the adrenal glands, pituitary and higher brain centers.

Many people with low protein intake show problems with metabolism, moods, concentration and deficiencies that effect every cell in the body.

High quality sources of dietary protein include: eggs, fish, seafood, fowl, and meats if desired.

Most whey protein from cow’s milk also contains casein, which can cause inflammation and other health problems. Our STAR Protein is a high quality protein without casein.

It is Malnutrition Awareness Week!



Traditional physicians in the U.S. are taught that true malnutrition is very rare in developed countries, like the USA.  However, we find that subclinical malnutrition runs rampant here.

Subclinical basically says that your doctor may not recognize nutrient deficiencies, because of what they were taught and weren’t taught in medical school.

Let’s take Vitamin C as an example.  According to the Merck Manual, What are symptoms of scurvy, due to a Vitamin C deficiency?  

Symptoms include fatigue, depression, and connective tissue defects (like gingivitis, rash, internal bleeding, impaired wound healing). 

Do you know anyone with bleeding gums, depression or tiredness?   Most doctors look for other reasons, because they are taught we get enough Vitamin C in our diet.   Emerging research says that we are biochemically and genetically unique and some people may need more Vitamin C, B vitamins, Folic Acid than others to maintain optimal health. Some people need 1000mg Vitamin C, some may need 5000mg ascorbate or more.  The same applies to B vitamins, Folic Acid and other nutrients.

We test you for individual nutritional needs and biochemical imbalances.  Once deleted, natural formulations and diet may make significant differences in your health and symptoms.
