Hey, what’s up guys? Sean Nalewanyj, of EliteImpactLabs.com
here. And in today’s video, I want to do a quick review on beef protein isolate powders.
Now, beef has been a staple in bodybuilder’s diets for decades. It’s packed with valuable
muscle building nutrition coming from high quality protein, creatine, branched-chain
amino acids, B vitamins and zinc. And because of the overall quality of beef as a bodybuilding
protein source, supplement companies are now offering beef protein isolate in powder form.
And the idea here is to give you all of the muscle building effectiveness of regular beef,
but in the convenient form of a protein shake. But is beef protein isolate a good investment?
And how does it compare to regular whey protein? Well, if beef protein isolate was actually
lean meat in powdered form, then I’d say go for it. Unfortunately, most people using these
beef protein powders have no idea what they’re actually made from. What they really are is
essentially the throw-away parts of the cow; they’re joints, ligaments, connective tissue,
hide, ears, et cetera. Basically, all the parts you end up with after the butcher is
finished with the cow. And all of these parts are combined to form a substance called gelatin,
which is actually the primary ingredient found in all of the popular beef protein powders
on the market. They take the gelatin. They turn it into a powdered form. And then they
fortify that powder with added creatine and branched-chain amino acids to make it seem
like you’re getting the real thing. Now, I’m not saying that this is a health risk or that
it’s going to harm you, but the overall protein quality is nowhere near that of what you get
from a piece of sirloin steak. Now, if consumed in limited amounts, gelatin is not going to
negatively affect your results. But why bother? For around the same price, you can buy a pure
whey protein isolate, which is the highest quality source of protein you can possibly
put into your body. Whey, has the highest absorption rate and the best amino acid profile
of any protein source out there, and is significantly higher quality than that of gelatin. So, that’s
really all there is to it. If you want a lower quality protein powder made from cow hoofs
and ears, then go ahead and buy a tub of beef protein isolate. If you want a pure source
of the highest quality muscle building protein available, and for the same price, just stick
with regular whey. And if you’re allergic to whey, then egg or casein powders would
be your next best choice. And if you do want to check out a very high quality, 100% pure
whey protein isolate product, make sure to check out our IsoM3 whey protein over on EliteImpactLabs.com.
