Isagenix vs Visalus Herbalife Shaklee and other SOY SHAKES

Isagenix only sources dairy (Whey) proteins from cows that are pasture fed in New Zealand. Because of its sparse population, New Zealand is one of the few places in the world to maintain a rich natural beauty in a temperate climate with abundant rainfall. Its pristine environment and warmth is a seeming paradise with richly diverse fauna, clean lakes and rivers, and beautiful beaches.

The country is home to more than four million dairy cows. This is about the same amount as there are people on the island, many of whom depend on the dairy industry for their livelihoods.

One plant is a relatively small operation with a focus on sustainability by sourcing only from small family farms with free-grazing cows that are never given artificial hormones (rBST free). The cows themselves enjoy a quality life on the pasture, are well rested after each milking, and are milked according to season as nature intended for them.

It is this plant that provides Isagenix with dairy protein produced exclusively for IsaLean products (shake, soups and bars) and IsaPro whey protein.

Dairy farming in this way ensures consistency of high quality and purity—that cannot be guaranteed from sourcing in the United States or elsewhere. The fresh milk is guided through a series of fine filters under low heat to separate whey from other dairy components such as fats and lactose.

The gentle system uses no acids and the protein remains in its natural state, undenatured, with protein folds left as they should be. The proof is found in the superior nutritional benefits and flavor.

We now know from gene expression studies that undenatured whey contains many bioactive compounds including antibodies and enzymes that have multiple beneficial effects in humans. When the whey is denatured, these bioactive compounds are destroyed.

Undenatured whey also contains numerous di-peptides (amino acid pairs) and tri-peptides (amino acid triples). These are keys that fit specific genetic locks in the body to turn on protein functions. If the whey is denatured, the keys are broken down into single amino acids and no longer work.

It’s true that the milk industry didn’t know of these problems until recent science uncovered them. But it is expensive to change your technology, and its not happening in this economy. Undenatured whey protein is extracted by cold-membrane filtration. It costs more, but it’s the only whey to go.”  –
