What is the best all natural whey protein product?

What is the best all natural whey protein product?

There is no one!: All natural pure whey protein is simply that! there are products that hydrolize protein in to Amino Acids and peptides, and there are those that have added "branched" amino acids. But these by definition are not natural or organic. A good whey protein that is pure whey protein is all you need.

Protein (Definition)

Proteins are large molecules made up of a smaller class of molecules called amino acids. Proteins play an enormous role in the function of our bodies including enzymes, messengers, replicating dna, ...Read more

I am lifting weight. I am pure vegetarian. I want to take protein after workout. So which protein product is reliable without having any side effect.

I am lifting weight. I am pure vegetarian. I want to take protein after workout. So which protein product is reliable without having any side effect.

Whey, Hemp: Whey protein powder is commonly used to build muscle and is generally well-tolerated. However, i strongly recommend whey powder from grass-fed cows not given hormones & antibioitics and processed at low temperature, such as whey cool from designs from health. Another excellent protein powder is hemp seed protein powder, a great source of protein, minerals and essential fatty acids.

What's the best whey protein brand or product?

One of the best...: Hard to say one is the very best, but i advise whey from grass fed-cows not given hormones or antibiotics processed at low temperature so the immunoglobulins & other proteins are not denatured. My favorite is whey cool by designs for health: http://www.Rockwellnutrition.Com/p-designs-for-health-whey-cool-vanilla-organic-whey-protein.

Sir, please tell me Nutrilite Protein Powder (Amway Product) is really helpful for our health?

Sir, please tell me Nutrilite Protein Powder (Amway Product) is really helpful for our health?

Can't say that.: I am sorry, but I cannot make such a statement. There is really nothing better for you than a good balanced diet. Protein supplements can be part of that diet but they are not necessary.

I had a upep test done and all the result says is protein quantitive 22.1 mg/dl What does this mean?

Proteinuria: My interpretation of that result would to consider that amount of proteinuria as very mild and doesn't suggest significant kidney damage. However we don't see the breakdown of the types of protein(qualitative) in your report. Your ordering physician,who knows all your findings, is best qualified to answer your question.

What might a high C reactive protein result mean? Mine is close to 4.

What might a high C reactive protein result mean? Mine is close to 4.

CRP: This is a very non-specific measure of inflammation and is a worthless test unless applied to a specific clinical syndrome. It can only be of value in concert with the history, physical exam and other testing. The value of 4 is actually not very high and could be due to virtually anything. Hope this helps.

Protein, urine, qn <=11 mg/dl (my result <6) why does it say <6 instead of actual number?

Lab technique: Sometimes laboratories have cutoff values for determining the concentration of a particular substance. Anything below that value will be considered negative or insignificant.

See your doctor.: This is one of those problems where a visit to your doctor is necessary to figure out what's going on. Only after a thorough evaluation, including examination and possibly labs and other tests, can your doctor correctly diagnose you and treat you effectively.

How can I lower my c-reactive protein test result?

How can I lower my c-reactive protein test result?

Depends on cause: Elevated CRP usually indicates inflammation which may be due to infection or other causes of inflammation. The underlying cause needs to be treated. High sensitivity CRP is generally measured to assess risk of heart disease and the elevated hscrp often come down with statin therapy. In any case you need to consult your doctor for the proper work-up and treatment.

How can a change in a mutant protein result in hypercholesterolemia? Is that really the cause?

How can a change in a mutant protein result in hypercholesterolemia?  Is that really the cause?

LDL receptor: A properly functioning receptor for low density lipoprotein is one of the many proteins needed to maintain a normal level of cholesterol. A mutant LDL receptor may interfere with removal of LDL and result in hypercholesterolemia. This is just one example of a mutated protein causing alteration in cholesterol levels.

Which type of genes, if abnormally activated so that the protein is always present and active, result in cancer?

Which type of genes, if abnormally activated so that the protein is always present and active, result in cancer?

Oncofetal genes: The genes for oncofetal proteins are normally demethylated in the fetus to produce proteins to allow organs to function. At birth the genes are re:methylated. In colon cancer the most common gene activated is derived from MUC5ac. The protein is a post transcriptional modification of the MUC5ac protein which is immunogenic but present in too low a concentration to be seen by the immune system.

Question: recently ordered whey protein powder and when i got it, it is pure white color. Is it really whey or a fake product?

That will be diffi -: Cult for anyone to prove one way or the other. Probably the manufacturer can help you and if not satisfied with them, then maybe the local cops might be able to help. I don't know anyone can help you on this forum.

I did a urinalysis and the result said i had trace of protein in my urine, i am so scared please help me, every other thing was normal?

Most likely, okay...: Sporadic Isolated finding of trace protein in UA is not uncommon & could be normal as long as not being persistent or with red blood cells or white blood cells, and having no adverse clinical history to suggest possible kidney disease.

Many protein bars,etc add FOS(Fructo-oligosaccharides). Is it used for adding fiber in their product?Do they provide same benefit as fiber from foods?

Many protein bars,etc add FOS(Fructo-oligosaccharides). Is it used for adding fiber in their product?Do they provide same benefit as fiber from foods?

No way; all sugars:: Fructose (a specific & very unhealthy sugar when concentrated) & saccharides (chains of sugar), oligo means short (i.e. easy to digest quickly into simple sugars which are rapidly absorbed; also rapidly converted by liver into triglyceride fats for storage if not physically very active when consuming these-study: http://goo.gl/uDGIwD for understanding). Sugar use=sales/sweet tooth/?$, NOT health!

Alfha feto protein :- result :- 0.01 , previous :- 010 hcg beta specific :- result :- 1.60, , previous :- 1.60 ldh result:- 714. Previous :- 840?

Not enough info: You had testicular cancer and were treated with chemotherapy. The AFP and bhcg levels are normal. Were they abnormal at diagnosis ? If so, then this recent data is supportive of continued remission. The ldh is hard to interpret without your labs normal values; however, the fact that it is decreasing is evidence that the cancer is not progressing.

My urine protein test result is 175 mg per 24 hrs. What does this mean?

Proteinuria: presence of protein in the urine is usually suggestive of underlying kidney disease. When the kidney filters get damaged the protein from blood tends to leak into the urine and causes further damage. most common causes are diabetes and high blood pressure. Please make appointment to see a kidney specialist.
