Amino Acids – Part III

By September 26, 2022No Comments

The Word Protein is on the label of most cans of muscle-building products in the health food store or gym

But I believe that less than half of the users understand what protein is and how important it really is not just simply to muscle building, but to his state of health.

The last two articles went into detail in explaining what it is. Now, let’s talk about sources of nutrition. We will scout the area around Vegan Protein, Whey Protein, and other sources you can find that will work well for you.

Meat Protein

Beef, chicken, pork, and fish, are excellent sources of high-grade protein. So why even consider using any other source?  Yes, these items will provide 100% of the body’s need of the 9 essential amino acids, and over the history of man have provided a healthy balance with other nutritional needs. It has been our reliable source since the caveman days.

The problem is the adulteration of the food fed to the livestock and the plants with glyphosate, a weedkiller manufactured by Montesano, and a plethora of other things in growing the food from fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides, and god knows what else was given, plus GMO.  Then when it is prepared it is usually loaded with preservatives, GMO, radiation from cellphones and 5G, and a load of other poisons put directly into the food for a variety of reasons and none for your health. No wonder Americans are the most obese, ranking in the high twenties of the least healthy civilian population in over twenty other countries and rank about the same in life expectancy.  How can this be with the world’s most sophisticated hospitals and most highly trained experts in healthcare?

Ok, Enough Ranting about our Healthcare system.

I ghostwrote every word in The Death of American Healthcare,  for Dr. Mike Carberry, D.C., which book explains in detail how our healthcare in the US became what it is. Now let’s take a look at alternative protein sources.

Plant-Based Protein

Evidently, you can get all of the 9 essential amino acids, which produce the protein necessary for us to survive, through plant sources.  You just have to make sure you eat enough in the right categories, and you have it made. Vegan-only people walk a tightrope in my opinion, for they have problems as even a regular diet of them may leave you deficient. This little article is hardly extensive enough to go through the amount of protein that plant sources produce, but I will cover as much as I can.

How much protein do you need?

The World Health Organization says we need to have 10% to 15% of our diet be protein. The US Dept of Agriculture says 10% to 35%, and a leading expert, T. Colin Campbell, says 8%-10%. So who do we believe? I just know that we are not all carbon copies of each other-there are variations in races, body types and other criteria. “The Great Vegan Protein Book here is the formula:  (Your weight in pounds) X 0.36 = daily protein intake in grams. (Dr. Campbell did the famous China Study that is worth exploring)

Food Sources

  • meat, poultry, and fish
  • beans and lentils
  • dairy items such as cheese and milk
  • tofu and tempeh
  • eggs
  • quinoa
  • nuts and seeds.

So there you have the basic sources of Protein, and the basic sources in the Vegan World are:

  • Quinoa
  • Tofu, Tempeh and Edamame
  • Amaranth 
  • Buckwheat
  • Ezekial Bread
  • Spirulina
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Chia Seeds
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Rice and Beans
  • Pita and Hummus
  • Peanut Butter Sandwich
  • Mycoprotein (quorn)

Dr Minkoff Recommends

If you want to make sure you are Protein OK, get some Perfect Amino supplements. I am not sure where to get them, perhaps he has them.  I wouldn’t trust any other source other than Dr. Minkoff. There are hundreds of companies selling these supplements, but I wouldn’t buy from them without proof of the ingredients, their safety, and sources of the ingredients. You just never know, except you do know one thing, that in the last couple of years our national leadership has produced evidence of the capability of evil and dishonesty that constantly shocks the author of this peace and the level to which man can go for greed and power. So now, cynical me, I suspect everything. So should you. We can settle back down when it all is back to normal, as we know it.  So the idea is to get a good supplement and just use it as recommended via your weight, etc., and you could become as fit as Dr. Minkoff.

Whey Protein

Whey protein is one of the primary proteins found in dairy products. A byproduct of the cheese-making process, whey protein provides substantial amounts of the essential amino acids that are needed to carry out the functions that proteins perform in the body. It is used to kick the muscles into gear and seems to help lifters and gym enthusiasts. I am sometimes shocked at the excess these guys to in order to get those muscle bulging, and I mean bulging – Biceps, triceps, pecs, and shoulders look about to explode. To look like that they must really undergo lots of tearing down to get them up and protruding like that and need these build-back proteins to make them look about to explode.

In General

            To have a well-rounded and excellent healthy life you simply must have the 9 essential amino acids plus the remainder which will only go to work if the nine show up ready to rock and roll. So you have to have some understanding about what you are doing to keep it all in balance. But I just say, balance your meat and greens, eat enough, and supplement. You will be fine. Dr. Minkoff recommends the Paleo diet, which I like, but I also like beans at times.  (oh, by the way, my Cajun friends were wise in this respect.  Red beans and Rice is one of their tasty and at least weekly fare. They seemed to know what was good and what was good for them. Get my book, Cajun Delectables, and see my recipe for it. It will be on your menu from then on, and you will have solved the way to have some of the survival foods for your family’s diet.}
