Health Conditions and Protein

Ensuring your appropriate intake of protein is important at any age. With an added health condition, it becomes even more so. Why?

Diabetes

Some health conditions make it harder for your body to absorb and utilize protein.banner ads diabetes_Page_3 Diabetes for example. Many of the drinks on the market are smothered in sugar to hide the bad taste, or, contain artificial ingredients.  From our point of view, artificial ingredients are as bad or worse than sugar – they trick the body into drinking/eating more – see more below. Which means that if you are supplementing your protein needs, ensuring you have a protein that is best utilized and absorbed by the body, and, is low or has no sugar, is essential.

JENNA’S CLEARLY PROTEIN has ZERO sugar, and is totally absorbed and utilized by the body.

Epilepsy

Anecdotally, individuals with epilepsy have seen improvement when food dyes and artificial ingredients are removed from their diet – our drinks’ namesake being just one of many, many people who have seen this firsthand.

JENNA’S CLEARLY PROTEIN has NO artificial ingredients or dyes.

Celiac Disease

JENNA’S CLEARLY PROTEIN is tested to less than 5 ppm.  A level that ensures even the most sensitive reaction to gluten won’t be found with our protein drink.

 

Gastric Bypass

Additionally, the first weeks post surgery consist of a clear diet. To help reduce cravings, a clear protein water such as JENNA’S CLEARLY PROTEIN packs 12 g protein in just 12 oz water.

 

 

Artificial Ingredients

“Dr. Mercola Calls Asparatame “By Far the Most Dangerous Substance Added to Most Foods Today”” and then went on to list a few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the FDA report as part of aspartame dangers:

Headaches/
migraines
Dizziness Seizures Nausea Numbness
Muscle spasms Weight gain Rashes Depression Fatigue
Irritability Tachycardia Insomnia Vision problems Hearing loss
Heart palpitations Breathing difficulties Anxiety attacks Slurred speech Loss of taste
Tinnitus Vertigo Memory loss Joint pain

And while the link between something like aspartame and childhood diseases and disorders is still tenuous – children with ADD/ADHD tend to do better when artificial ingredients are removed from the diet.
