When you are looking for a vegan (non-dairy) protein powder there are many to choose from. A few key things to be aware of when making your final selection will help you choose the best the marketplace has to offer.
Making sure you are getting organic ingredients ensures that the quality of the protein source itself is clean as well as any secondary ingredients. If it is not organic move on. The second ingredient in many protein powders is the flavoring or the thickening agent. This is where things can get a little hard to figure out without some experience.
The term ‘natural flavors’ normally means a flavoring that was developed in a lab through extensive processing. Although it may have started as a food or animal product the end result comes from extensive refinement. Also, even though the product is labelled ‘vegan’ it can have natural flavors that are derived from animal sources. Ideally the natural whole food ingredients or herbs themselves are the source of flavor.
You may also find fillers and thickening agents that are designed to make your protein creamy and consistent. These are things like acacia gum, guar gum, xanthum gum, and similar ingredients. These are essentially laxatives and prolonged use has been linked to health problems. Guar gum was banned by the FDA for use in weight loss products after several deaths occurred. It also means you are paying top dollar for cheap fillers.

Shilajit is considered a ‘jing’ herb that feeds your kidney which is extremely beneficial for people who are working out and exercising regularly. Each time we exert effort in our workouts we are tapping into our jing energy. This is why so many bodybuilders and workout warriors go bald early in life, they have consistently tapped into their jing without replacing it.
Vitamin C helps to potentiate the herbs in Immortal Machine® which is why Amla and Lucuma are added. They dramatically increase the efficacy and efficiency of the superherbs for optimal performance. Finally, sea salt not only helps bring out the flavor but also feeds our adrenal glands which are taxed during workouts.
