Nowadays, a lot of people are paying attention to what have been popping up in the lifestyle department of stores. Living a healthy life is very important, and thankfully people have started to realize this. One thing that has caught many people’s eyes over the years is protein shakes. But in a recent article by Consumer Reports “Alert: Protein Drinks” it mentioned the bad effects about protein drinks. This is some of the things they had to say: “Drinks in our tests had at least onesample containing one or more of the following contaminants: arsenic, cadmium,lead, and mercury."

 “Consumers who have three servings daily could be exposed to levels that exceed the maximum limits for one or two of those contaminants”

“The amount of lead in a single daily serving of eight of the protein supplements we tested would require that the product carry a warning in California.”

“Federal regulations do not generally require that protein drinks…be tested before they are sold to ensure that they are safe…manufacturers don’t comply…enforcement seems to be lax. Sometimes warnings appear only after lawsuits are filed.”

What was not mentioned is that not all protein products are the same, we care about you. Supplement Rx’s products are all tested thoroughly and regularly to make sure our products contain exactly what’s on the label and nothing else.
