How important is Protein?


Our muscles, skin, hair, nails, eyes and even enzymes are mostly protein. It’s the second most plentiful substance in our bodies after water. And we all listen to people (I hate to say) that don’t know any better but think they get enough through the food they eat. Now friends, the fact is we live in a society where everyone that I know has a hard time finding time for themselves.  We are always on the run with work, kids, constant texting, emails, Facebook, house chores – need I go on?

Hey I’m 58, my blood pressure last week was 110 over 71. I work at being in shape and it’s not easy. But on a hardline approach I could say wait, (men or women) you make time to shower, make-up, shave, iron cloths, watch TV, blow dry your hair, go check e-mails ect. Oh kids need attention. We need an hour to get ready for the day so we set the clock for 45 minutes early to work out at home because finding time to go to a gym is crazy. The alarm goes off and we think, “ I need more sleep, I’ll work out tomorrow”.  You know I’m right.

So, after many years of trying different proteins and reading everything available on what this does and what this doesn’t do and what I need and what I don’t need.  And most importantly, I also looked at quality and price. So with all that being said, I feel the best is the Whey Protein Isolate.

Now why don’t we get the amount of Protein needed from our foods? Because, we don’t eat right.  I can’t tell you how many people that I talk to that don’t eat in the morning, (the most important meal of the day) or skip lunch or always eat high carb meals like pasta and night. So to make things easier for everyone, we have to stop thinking of breakfast, lunch and dinner and ONLY think of eating. Because you lose weight by eating, NOT not eating. Eating keeps your metabolism working. You need to start by taking Protein powder with your supplements between your actual eating.

Whey Protein: I’m absolutely convinced that whey protein is the best. It has more usable grams of amino acids than other types and low in lactose. It offers many different forms of filtration. I use Whey before and after working out as it hits my system quicker. It’s also the best right after you wake up before you do anything else. The two main types of Whey Protein are Concentrate and Isolate.

Here is the difference:

 Whey Concentrate:

The cheapest form of most proteins, a concentrate is created by pushing the protein source (milk, whey ect.) through a filter that allows water, vitamins and minerals to go through. The proteins, which are too big to pass through the filter, are collected for further processing that usually involves evaporation and a drying process. It’s about 70 to 80 percent protein, with the rest being carbs and fat.

Whey Isolate: bozoomer

This is a form of protein that’s more pure that concentrate, an isolate is processed through longer Microfiltration followed by Ultrafiltration. It gives you one of the highest percentages of protein and ours is Lactose-Free, Fat-Free, Sugar-Free, Cholesterol-Free and less than 1 gram of Carbs. What I have described to you is our bozoomer Whey Protein-26 Isolate.

Suggested Protein:

I mentioned earlier that I’ll have a new Protein brand coming out soon that you will love. Well it’s now available under our bozoomer label

You can even add any supplements – just open the capsules and put the contents into your shake once per day. Easy stuff! Did you know that studies have shown that men and women lost an average of 5 lbs by drinking two whey protein shakes per day for 12 weeks, without dieting or exercising? Whey protein is 31 percent more effective at boosting muscle protein synthesis immediately following exercise than soy protein and 122 percent more effective than casein protein. A gram of protein per pound of bodyweight per day is the most common recommendation.


Incomplete Proteins – Sources include grains, nuts, seeds and vegetables. They supply low protein or only some of the essential amino acids your body needs for muscle growth and repair.

Complete Proteins – Animal proteins like meat, fish, poultry, milk, cheese and eggs are complete proteins. That means they supply adequate amounts of all 18 amino acids your body needs for muscle growth and repair.

Lastly, if you don’t work on building muscle as you age you will notice the first things to go are the legs.

Getting up from the dinner table, going up and down the stairs, getting in and out of your car and for some, just walking. Protein is the building block for maintaining muscle.  If you are adding Protein to your diet ( and you should),  try different flavors from time to time. Mix it up. We have introduced a Chocolate and a Vanilla flavor. Put about 8 to 10 oz of water or skim milk into the blender or shaker (you can get a shaker cup from us) and one scoop of the protein powder. Add your sulfur or any other supplement to your shake and you’re good to go. We even have individual, one serving packets of each flavor.

If you’re leaving for the day, I suggest putting your stuff into the shaker and use the protein mix between meals during the day. All you have to do when you’re out is add water.

Shake it baby!
