Should you donate blood, how many nitrates do you need, what makes PureClean supplements special (Ask Dr. Cohen #3)
Welcome to the Ask Dr. Cohen series, part #3!

"I am partial to whey protein for the taste and amino acid content, can you please advise?
Whey, commonly used in protein powders, is a poor option because it almost certainly comes from diseased cows (as all big agra dairy does).
Even if it did not, you have to avoid consuming much at one time because unlike (say, casein), it is seen by the body a bit like sugar and anything over X (a low number that varies by individual) it will be converted to fat.
But it mixes easily, can readily be "enhanced" with sugar and various flavors, so it's popular. Plus the product packaging often features a steroid-abusing dude so you know if you just eat this stuff you will have huge muscles too (gee, it’s the protein powder and not the steroids?). The gas and bloating are just side "benefits" for you to enjoy!
As we know, and I can speak true with 30 years work in this business, for most in the "supps market" it is just selling stuff and not about what is best for people. Read it again.
As a side note, please read some of Morley Robbins work if you want to read ground breaking research. It is grounded in Weston Price but advanced by over 100 years of hidden or ignored research.
Humanity is copper deficient and iron overloaded, health stretches way beyond what is the best protein powder (which you can learn more protein facts here on which is the bestt). Throw in deficiencies in magnesium and retinolA and overuse of synthetic vitamins and we have been led down a life of disease and profitability for those who manage it.
Our unsung hero serum assessments can help, like a lot, but we are working on advancing this with T2 MRI for iron in tissue, mitochondrial enzymes and metabolic function.
These are the basics of this work, pay attention men over 30 because this imbalance hurts your health the most:
B vits from foods - liver, bee pollen, etc
800mg magnesium glycinate or bicarbonate or malate
Whole vitamin C Amla, camu 500mg to 1000mg daily
Adrenal support - pinki salt and potassium
Cod liver oil with natural vitamin A (Jigsaw, Rositas) 1100ug
Copper bisglycinate work up to 6mg daily or 4g and copper hydrosol 1TBS from Sovereign Silver.
"How many milligrams of nitrates do I need per day for cardiovascular and performance benefits from beet juice?"
400 to 500 mg per day. BUT, beet juice products are not allowed to say how many grams of nitrates are in their powder! WHY? Because "someone" bought a patent on the words "nitrates and beet juice powder", so companies cannot put the amount on their label or product description. To understand which beet juice powder to buy it can get really confusion and lots of people lie and get away with "iffy" marketing claims. To make things easy on you, we have a CoA on every of our PURECLEAN BEET beet juice powder jar that is 3x the nitrate content of any leading beet juice powder product, anywhere. Ask and we will send to you.
