Heavy metals (lead, copper, cadmium, mercury and arsenic) are found in everything from drinking water to toys but for most athletes the greatest concentrations are ingested from protein powders and for those who consume several servings a day – heavy metals can really build up. This is why I manufactured an organic hand filled protein powder – completely free of all garbage. A few side effects of heavy metals include: reduced growth and development, cancer, organ and nervous system damage, rheumatoid arthritis, kidney disease and death. In a nutshell, if you get the heavy metals out of your body – it can then heal quickly and efficiently. Methionine is excellent for removing heavy metals from the body. This is one of the primary reasons we included it in our product – Metabolic Activator. Don’t sabotage your health. Read the label on protein powders. If there’s a list of 35 chemicals after the word whey – put it back on the shelf.
