Substitute the contents of one serving of Protein Plus powder for a meal as often as you want. For a wonderful treat, add a packet of Vitamin Mineral Powder or Super Charged Greens Blend®.
If you are trying to add lean muscle mass:
Aim for 5 meals per day. A combination of frequent meals of protein and carbs will keep your metabolism and muscle growth at a high. Eating right before and after your workout can also speed muscle growth. Fueling with protein and carbs within 1-2 hrs. of exercise provides your muscles with enough energy to build strength and burn fat more effectively. Eat a snack composed of carbs and protein 30 min. before your workout and eat protein right after. A Protein Plus shake and a baked potato are great options.

What is the difference between soy protein and whey protein?
Soy protein comes from soybeans, which is a legumes a source of carbohydrate. There are three problems with soy protein. The protein from soy is not complete; it is missing one of the essential amino acids called methionine. Most soy protein powders are fortified with this amino acid, making it complete. However, it is important to know that most soy protein products are processed using hexane and other toxic chemicals, which are not safe for the body. Also, the body does not easily absorb soy protein. It has a low biological value meaning that a significant percentage of the protein passes through your body unused. It is an inferior source of protein to whey protein. Additionally, soy protein can cause bloating and be estrogen-producing which, unless you are perimenopausal, can cause a whole host of problems.
Why is whey better?
Whey protein is the best source of protein, second to eggs. Whey protein is micro-filtered so fat and lactose are removed. Whey has the highest digestion/absorption levels of all proteins. It accelerates muscle development, increases antioxidant levels, and thus destroys free radicals. Whey provides the body with the building blocks necessary for each cell to produce Glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant and healing agent.
Isn’t whey protein just for athletes and body builders?
No, absolutely not. It has been the protein of choice for athletes and body builders because it is the most easily absorbed, purest source of complete protein available and it comes in a convenient powder that can be added to a variety of foods. It is so pure it is perfect for babies as soon as they are weaned off the breast, growing children (it strengthens bones), teenagers (it helps prevent and treat ADD and ADHD), and adults (especially busy ones). It is perfect for the aging because as you age, your ability to digest protein lessens and your muscles start to diminish. Whey protein isolate is very easily absorbed and is extremely anabolic– meaning it helps build muscle mass–and it is a powerful immune-booster, so it helps prevent sickness and disease.

Can I mix it with any type of milk?
Protein Plus should be mixed with water or unsweetened almond milk.
Can I use your Protein Powder if I am lactose intolerant?
Yes, David Kirsch’s MRP is made from 100% whey protein isolate which is lactose-free and is hypo-allergenic, meaning it rarely causes allergic reactions. Lower quality, cheaper protein products use blends including whey, soy and other protein derivatives. These often contain lactose and can cause allergic reactions including upset stomach, bloating and other digestive problems.
