It was great to learn that Bodi was recommended a particular protein powder and so we did a comparison on ingredients and I was wrapped to show him how our Paramount Nutrition Whey Protein Plus+ was a better choice.
So what's the difference?
Personal trainers and fitness professionals should know what is and isn't good for us. What is necessary and what isn't. We've been shown how to read food labels but do we understand what it all means?
Unnecessary ingredients are added to products to "fill them out" for larger profits OR perhaps the ingredients are of a poor grade and need support to be "stable" (e.g for shelf life, chemical structure).
Is a product necessary for you at all?
A quality personal trainer should know all this and should provide that higher level of service. Visit or contact one of our personal trainer stockists or health and fitness professionals here.
Do you know the difference between high quality supplements and others in stores? Well here's our take on it.
Ask the questions.
Where's all the money coming from for advertising, store overheads, fancy labels and endorsements of quite often "misleading results"? Remember the shareholders want their cut of the profit.
It costs money, loads of money for "testing" products and to put claims on labels like "banned substance tested". And in most, if not all cases the quality of the product is reduced to cover those costs.
Health and fitness professionals should know this stuff too! So pick their brain and ask them, that's what you pay them for!
Just because a product has labels on the front of them like shown below doesn't always mean they are of "the highest quality"
So what is high quality???Shown below are screenshots of two products from the same company with the above endorsement labels on the front of their products (Informed Choice OR Banned Substance Approved etc)
So when we look at these labels, not only do we want to know the macro ratio (protein/carbs/fat) of the product, but WHAT IS THE ACTUAL INGREDIENTS inside it to make up those ratios?
Do we need the following ingredients in our bodies for better performance or better health?
Emulsifers (soy lecithin)?
And goodness knows what other "fillers" or crap to increase profits instead of providing better quality!
Now check out our Whey Protein Plus ingredients here.
So go to your cupboard now, pull out your most recent protein powder and other supplements and compare the ingredients not just the macro ratios. Remember, no matter what brand or product you use, do your research, ask your trainer or health and fitness professional for more information and always assess your tolerance on supplements too.
