Why It's Smarter To Use Dairy-Free Protein Powder

Written by: Lindsay Sibson

Whether you are an intensive gym goer OR an active mommy on-the-go, protein smoothies can offer a healthy dose of nutrition and energy to fuel your day.

However, the TYPE of protein powder you use could either be helping or hindering your wellness.

If you have ever experienced any discomfort (especially with your digestion) after drinking a smoothie or protein shake, then it may be SMARTER and healthier to switch to a plant-based dairy-free protein powder.

Here is why…

Problems Of Consuming TOO Much Dairy

Highly Inflammatory

  • Most people generally have issues with dairy because of it’s sugar and protein content
  • Causes bloating, gas and abdominal discomfort

Influences Mood

  • Casein, the protein found in dairy, has been linked to aggression, anger, addiction and DEPRESSION
    • It takes a long time to digest
    • Creates a lot of stress and work for you body

Hormone Hazard

  • Dairy farmers inject cows with a genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rBGH) to increase milk production
  • This often leads to the cow’s udder becoming infected, which is then treated with antibiotics
  • Both the hormones and antibiotics can make their way into YOUR dairy products!

Acid Forming

  • Your body likes to maintain a neutral pH
  • Too much dairy causes your body to become more acidic
    • Forces your body to gather its alkaline reserve in the form of magnesium, potassium and calcium (all stored in your bones!)
    • Weakens your bones
