Why use Complete Truth Protein

Why use Complete Truth Protein (CTP)?  We’d like to share with you the main nutrients CTP has to offer which are Energy, Iron, Fibre, Calcium and Magnesium.  Many of us are lacking at least one of these nutrients in our diets.  In fact, many people take supplement for these nutrients (because we lack them in our diets).  At CTP we believe in food as a healing source, we believe if we consume a balanced diet and get your nutrients from food you don’t need to supplement with vitamins or supplements.  Nutrients from food are recognized differently by the body which makes them easier to absorb which means you’re getting more for your buck by choosing foods to supplement your body instead of nutrients in pill form.

Energy

The very first thing new customers tell us, without a doubt is the new found energy they find when they starting using CTP.  The secret to our formula is, there is no secret.  We truly believe in food and we’re not going to disguise anything and try to tell you it’s only our formula that gives you energy.  When supplementing your body with quality food and nutrient dense our body simply uses more of the nutrients.  When your body recognizes nutrients as food it uses more nutrients so it doesn’t discard much of what you’ve consumed and it certainly doesn’t store it as body fat.  When you use a high quality food that’s whole and nutrient dense your body almost immediately turns those nutrients into energy because because it’s all utilized by the body.

Iron

Iron is a nutrient many people, especially women lack as they get older.  We also lose iron in our sweat during activity which is rarely replaced.  The highest nutrient CTP offers is iron at 23!  Both quinoa and hemp hearts are good sources of iron which is why CTP’s percentage is so high.  So what’s iron for and why is it an important nutrient?  The human body needs iron to make the oxygen-carrying proteins hemoglobin and myoglobin. Hemoglobin is found in red blood cells and myoglobin is found in muscles which is why it’s so important to those are involved in physical activity.

If you run short on iron on a consistent basis you could be diagnoses with anemia which causes lack of energy, shortness of breath, headache, irritability, and even dizziness.  A quick tip for you if you’re experiencing lack of iron is to add vitamin C with whatever iron source you’re choosing that the time.  Vitamin C helps your body absorb iron.

Fibre

Fibre is an important part of your diet because it keeps the digestive system healthy and functioning properly.  Fibre also aids in digestion and also prevents constipation.  Most of us don’t get the recommended daily allowance of fibre.  Fibre is also important when it comes to weight control because fibre in foods help you feel full which will aid in the prevention of overeating.  It’s important to note that fibre can’t be found in meat or dairy products.

Calcium

The main concern with not having enough calcium is the increased risk of osteoporosis as we age (the weakening of bones).  As we age it becomes more difficult for our bodies to abosrb calcium from our diets, so our bodies take the calcium from our bones weakening them, which is why it’s essential we keep feeding our bodies with calcium rich foods as we age.

Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral different than any other kind of nutrient.  It’s not directly associated with any ‘partner’ like potassium and bananas or calcium and bones.  Although most experts will agree magnesium is absolutely essential to your health and well being.  Magnesium is mostly used for preventing constipation and regulating blood pressure.  Along with Calcium, Magnesium is also known to help strengthen bones.  Regardless of what we use magnesium for, it’s a good idea to find a quality source to increase the health of your body.
