MRM Flax-N-Whey™ Vanilla -- 1.99 lbs

Hormone Free & BSE Free. High Biological Value (BV Protein. No Artificial Flavors or Sweeteners. Fitness • Recover • Heart • Gluten Free. 36 Servings. Mixes Instantly. Meeting Nutritional Needs. Americans have an increasingly segmented life which makes meeting nutritional needs difficult at best. Modifying or supplementing the diet to compensate for the on-the-go convenience foods is a REALISTIC solution. Low Carb Diets Food Supplements and Fiber additives to food or juice are balancing mechanisms used to meet these needs. Women and men are recognizing the associated health benefits (weight loss cardiovascular and immune health etc) with these additions to their diet but are overwhelmed by "HOW!?"  . Omega Superfood. Flax-N-Whey™ is the perfect insurance policy for SAD (Standard American Diet). SAD (as reflected by NHANES [National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey] data) is considerably lower in Omega-3 fatty acids than U.S. Health Experts recommend. This specialized form of "good fat" offers a wide array of health benefits. Research shows the consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids (ALA EPA and DHA) may help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease while improving cell communication and function!  . MRM's Flax N Whey contains a soluble flaxseed meal from a gentle patented process that prevents the breakdown of its beneficial fatty acids. Stability of these essential fats is maintained  by an array of natural antioxidants found in flaxseed which act synergistically to protect these precious oils. This results in delivery of 600 milligrams of Alpha-Linolenic Acid along with heart healthy lignans antioxidant and fiber per serving in a whole food complex.  . Special Processing and Blend. Flax-N-Whey delivers the optimal source of whey protein by combining an ultrafiltered low temperature processed whey protein concentrate with cross flow microfiltered whey protein isolate. This specialized processing system insures a high quality protein source in the form of short and long chain peptides to increase protein retention - High Biological Value (HBV). Flax-N-Whey is also remarkably high in branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) which are the most required amino acids for maintaining metabolic rate (energy production) especially during dieting or protracted periods of "in-between" meals. Energy production is further enhanced through the addition of trehalose a sustained energy source with a low insulin response to help reduce "cravings".  . Enhancing Your Immune System. Regardless of ones lifestyle daily stress negatively impacts our immune system and our ability to remain healthy. Whey protein consumption has been shown to build our immune system by increasing glutathione concentrations a major antioxidant necessary for lymphocyte proliferation (white blood cell growth).

"I bought this for a few reasons. 1) because I am nursing and flax helps with milk supply, 2) it's all natural, and 3) it had a review saying it was sweet and that's what I wanted for my recipes (as I don't drink my protein, I cook with it). They must've changed the recipe because it is HORRIBLY bland, no flavor whatsoever, and turned my oatmeal to an almost inedible goo (and I've always had success putting both flax and other proteins in oatmeal). It doesn't blend well and I wish I had spent a little more money on something that I KNOW would taste good and work in cooking."

This tastes great!

"I love the taste of this whey. It is a bit sweet as with all the MRM whey powders, but I offset that with a heaping tablespoon of plain greek yogurt and it kills the overly sweet taste and adds a bit more protein. In my morning shake I also add Amazing Grass chocolate powder and yogurt, it's so good! I love the price here at vitacost and the auto ship option is great so I never run out."
