What is rBGH and why is it not good for you?
The rBGH makes cattle grow more quickly than they otherwise would, enabling them to produce milk, beef, and cheese more quickly. This works much more in the interest of the manufacturer than it does the cow or us for that matter.
Cattle fed rBGH are more prone to develop health problems, including udder infections and reproductive issues, while many of them go lame. To combat these problems, farmers feed their animals antibiotics which further exacerbate the problem.
When our kids eat meat or cheese and drink the milk from these animals, their systems are ingesting not only the rBGH, but also the antibiotics these cows have been fed!
We encourage you to seek out organic milk and produce where possible. That ensures that you won’t be getting the hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides that come with other non-organic options.
At EnergyFirst, our Whey Protein Powder is made from cows that are grass fed and not treated with rBGH, hormones, pesticides, or antibiotics. We use only the highest quality ingredients and never use any artificial flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
Our Whey protein isolate provides the richest, most biologically available source of the eight essential amino acids and branched-chain amino acids that your body needs for growth, energy, and vibrant health. In fact, it is the most biologically available (easy to assimilate) naturally known occurring protein. It will stabilize blood sugar levels and increase production of feel-good neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) that help to increase mental clarity and focus.
You can mix the protein with water to make a tasty shake your kids will love. Just be sure not to tell them that it’s good for them, as that would steal half of the fun!
