Dr Oz: Does Protein Powder Help You Lose Weight?
Protein powders might promise to help you lose weight and build muscle, but have you ever wondered what is actually in them? The truth might be surprising, especially since Dr. Oz says they could actually be causing you more harm than good.
Dr Oz: Consumer Lab Protein Powder Study
Dr. Oz says his wife Lisa uses protein powder in her morning smoothie every single day and for good reason. They offer many advantages, including suppressing appetite, boosting energy, working fast and easy to digest, and convenient. Consumer Lab recently conducted a study into 16 popular protein powders, with the following criteria:
- Do the products contain the protein and other key nutrients that they claim to?
- Do they contain more fats, carbs, and cholesterol than listed on the label?
- Are they contaminated with heavy metals?
The results from the study were quite shocking, with several of the brands not delivering what they promise on the label.
