How to Find Your Whey (Protein Powder)

How do you go about finding a high quality Whey Protein Powder?  This can be a daunting task.  The shelves are crammed full of different makes and models.  Deciphering the labels, and all the benefits they claim, can seem overwhelming without a degree in Organic Chemistry.  Below is a condensed list, thanks to Dr. Mercola, of 9 important rules to follow when trying to decide if that can of whey protein you’re considering ingesting, is not just a can of overly processed, additive enhanced, nutrient devoid, glorified talcum powder.  The video below will also help explain the benefits of whey protein powder and why this may be just what you need to include as part of your REAL food program.  Especially if you are looking to turn all that hard work into a hard body!
