Adequate protein consumption is important for everyone, since protein is in all our cells (and is the main source of their structure, and of our organs, bones, tendons and ligaments), and acts as a fuel source, and helps keep up our immunity, and helps prevent muscle wasting. And for those who work out, consuming a high quality complete protein like this is an excellent way to help build your muscles and hasten their recovery by saturating them with important amino acids.

Whey protein - which is produced from what's left over from milk after the parts which make cheese are taken out - has a lot of protein. This type is 77% protein per gram, for the unflavoured type (or 71%, for the flavoured variety, since it has a number of additional ingredients, like cocoa), and provides 24 grams of protein per serving.
To get the purest, cleanest protein possible at this affordable price point, the milk the Bodylogix Natural Whey is made from comes from grass-fed cows in New Zealand, where they have strictest regulatory controls in the dairy industry, monitor and test for antibiotic residues, and prohibit the use of the Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) steroid.
Then, to isolate as many of the various amino acids which make up a complete protein while preserving as much of their biologically active properties as they can, they only use cold-processing techniques, which leaves the protein non-denatured (i.e., in its original form). They use a combination of cross-flow microfiltration -- a type of ceramic filter designed to remove large portions of the other components of the milk, such as fat, cholesterol, minerals (or 'ash'), and lactose, for particles as small as 0.1 micron in diameter -- and ultra-filtration (which filters down to as small as 0.01 microns).

Adults: Consume once daily. Supplemental protein is ideally consumed mid-morning or mid-afternoon, between meals. If engaged in exercise or training, consuming a protein shake post-workout is a wise choice.
If taking other medications, take this either a few hours before or after those. Add 1 scoop (= 32 to 35 g, depending on flavour) to a blender, shaker cup, or glass filled with 6 to 8 ounces (177-237 ml) of cold water or your favourite beverage. (Vary the amount of liquid to achieve your desired taste or sweetness level.) Blend, shake, or stir it for 20 to 30 seconds, or until the powder is completely dissolved, then drink.
After opening, close the jar lid tightly again each time right after using, and store the jar in a cool, dry place, away from direct light.
