Warning: Is this commonly used ingredient in your protein powder, weight gainer or diet shake?
Commonly referred to as a healthy source of protein, Soy Protein, in our opinion is far from healthy; in fact we strongly believe that it could damage your health and it’s why you won’t find Soy Protein in any Reflex products.
So what is the problem with Soy Protein?
So what are the main Soy Toxins?
Trypsin inhibitors, as the name suggests, inhibit the action of your digestive system’s Trypsin and Protease enzymes. These are two essential enzymes responsible for digesting protein. Yes you read correctly. They inhibit protein digestion. Why on earth would anyone be so stupid to add Soy Protein to a protein powder or weight gainer? It gets worse monkeys1 fed a diet around Soy Concentrate developed chronic pancreatitis a condition that leaves the pancreas susceptible to pancreatic cancer.
If you’re a male wanting to optimize Testosterone levels forget Soy.
Is soy protein in your protein powder?
Soy protein is an inferior protein compared to whey, egg and milk protein.
•Whey Protein 104
The other reason that whey, milk and egg proteins are superior to soy protein is the higher content of branch chain amino acids. Whey protein has the highest content of branch chain amino acids of any food. Branch chain amino acids (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine) are scientifically proven to boost protein synthesis aiding the formation of lean muscle tissue. They are by far the most important amino acids for athletes.
Reflex Nutrition have always favoured whey protein as our “King” along with other first class sources of protein like egg and milk. In fact whey protein was the first protein we ever produced as far back as 1996, and for reasons stated above we have absolutely no plans to start using soy protein in our formulations.
