an­tiox­i­dant helps re­duce in­flam­ma­tion, sup­port detox­i­fi­ca­tion, strengthen im­mu­nity, speed heal­ing, de­crease signs of ag­ing and pre­vent dis­ease.

HOW TO IN­CLUDE

Go low and get lean by sup­ple­ment­ing at least 25 grams of whey pro­tein be­fore, dur­ing or af­ter your round. Pack a pro­tein shaker bot­tle and a serv­ing of whey for a quick snack at the turn. Whey pow­der mixes well when added to wa­ter, yo­gurt, veg­gie juice or an elec­trolyte bev­er­age.

LOOK FOR

Not all whey is cre­ated equal. Many whey prod­ucts are pro­cessed in way that de­na­tures the pro­tein. They can also have lots of hazardous chem­i­cals, preser­va­tives, GMOS, re­fined su­gars and ar­ti­fi­cial sweet­en­ers. For max­i­mum nu­tri­tional ben­e­fits, se­lect a high qual­ity brand of whey that’s min­i­mally pro­cessed with few in­gre­di­ents and prefer­ably from hor­mone-free, an­tibi­otic-free, grass-fed cows/goats.

DAIRY-FREE AL­TER­NA­TIVE

Although whey pro­tein is low in lac­tose, it may still af­fect in­di­vid­u­als with lac­tose in­tol­er­ance and should be avoided by those with al­ler­gies to dairy pro­teins. For sim­i­lar ben­e­fits try Pa­leo Pro­tein made from grass-fed beef.
