Choosing a Protein Powder Tips and Information

I thought I'd pass along some great information from Nature's Sunshine. If you are looking for some tips regarding weight loss then the following information is just for you. I hope you find it helpful.

NSP Protein Powders

Protein shakes can be a great tool during a weight management program. They can help control calorie intake,
balance blood sugar, increase energy, and maximize nutrient intake!!!  Some important factors to keep in mind when choosing a protein powder:
• What is the source of protein?
• It is important to choose a protein that is digestible by your body. If you are not
digesting the protein powder it may lead to digestion issues, inflammation, etc.
• What is in a serving size? Be aware of the calorie and protein content of each serving.
For a snack you may consider using only half a serving.

• Add a handful of fresh spinach. Not only will you be getting a serving of vegetables,
