Tired of trying a protein or meal replacement shake and then finding out that it actually has an ingredient you’re not certain of? We’ve heard a lot of excuses (“it’s a different kind of soy,” “it’s just a little bit of artificial sweetener”) but really, if a company puts cheap, health-harming ingredients into something that’s supposed to be healthy, in any quantity, that company is valuing a profit over our health!
We’ve done our homework and found out that:
- There’s no one shake that’s perfect for everyone. But there’s probably one that’s perfect for you.
- Good shakes are available in paleo, vegetarian, vegan, low-allergen, easily digestible, gently cleansing, diabetic-friendly, celiac-friendly and many other special formulations…you don’t have to compromise.
- Here are just a few of our favorites:
PaleoMeal® is a great-tasting, nutrient-rich powdered meal supplement designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for overall wellness. The ingredients make this formula ideal for patients needing support with weight control, GI health, detoxification, immune issues, heavy metals, and muscle gain. PaleoMeal® is made with Proserum®, exceptional quality, native whey protein concentrate. This whey is produced using minimal processing, is never exposed to high heat temperatures, and maintains the full range of all the fragile immune-boosting and regenerative components naturally present in fresh raw milk (but without the casein and lactose that some people are sensitive to). It comes from cows that graze on pesticide-free, chemical-free natural grass pastures, and which are never given hormones, genetically modified organisms, or injected pathogens. The result is the highest quality protein supplement, rich in immunoglobulins and lactoferrin, and free of artificial flavors and sweeteners.
PaleoMeal™ DF (Dairy-free) is a plant-derived protein. It is casein free, lactose free, and gluten free and offers the same comprehensive nutrient blend as the original PaleoMeal™. This is a true vegan protein which is easily digested and hypo-allergenic. This blend has been assayed to reveal undetectable levels of lectins, meaning it should be fine even for those who are sensitive to legumes, or who are avoiding legumes as part of a de-flaming regimen. Pea protein has an excellent array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids). It is particularly high in leucine, lysine, arginine, phenylalanine and tyrosine. As pea protein has ACE inhibitory activity, it may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels. It has also been shown, in rat studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) by stimulating bile acid formation and excretion (which also supports the healthy digestion of fats).
PurePaleo™ Protein is a great-tasting, dairy-free protein powder, yielding 21 g of protein per serving. It contains HydroBEEF™, a highly concentrated, pure beef protein, produced through an exclusive proprietary process that allows the protein to be hydrolyzed into more peptides, resulting in easier absorption and assimilation. This product contains beef from animals raised in Sweden without hormones or antibiotics, and is free of any GMO grains, grasses, and/or ensilage.
PurePaleo™ is an ideal protein for those who:
- want a true Paleo protein source
- want the power of beef to build muscle, cartilage & ligaments
- are dairy sensitive
- don’t like the taste of vitamins in their protein shakes, or would rather take vitamins separately
