PRLog - Feb. 9, 2013 - WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- Athletes, fitness advocates and dieters who routinely use protein supplements have a good chance of ingesting a toxic ingredient in their supplement. This protein, typically found in raw milk, is called casein.
“Casein has been promoted as a highly nutritious protein with distinct anabolic properties. It has been used as a common ingredient in sport nutrition products to support athletic performance, increase muscle mass and prevent muscle breakdown; however, it can in fact be counter effective and potentially toxic.” stated Ori Hofmekler, creator of The Warrior Diet and CEO of Defense Nutrition.
Casein is found in everyday foods, including: coffee creamers, yogurts, ice creams, cheese products, infant foods and more.
Hofmekler indicates that there is good casein and bad casein and the consumer should know the difference. He adds, “Treat your body well. ‘Wisdom’ can be toxic if it comes from an inferior source.”
Hofmekler has developed a protein powder that does not contain the potential hazards of industrial casein called “Warrior Whey,” it is available for purchase at www.warriorwhey.com.
