Chris Davis – Triathlete, Sydney
Being a triathlete has great demands on my body, training while following a gluten free diet can make things even more demanding. One of the most difficult things can be staying on top of it all nutritionally and being able to eat good clean food.
180 protein powder has been my saviour. I use it pre/post training and on race day. I truly feel it helps my energy and recovery. It’s taken the difficulty out of getting my hands on quality food at my convenience as I am on a wheat free diet, and made it all a whole lot easier. Great stuff, highly recommended.
Imagine a GLUTEN FREE protein powder that contains ONLY PURE INGREDIENTS, completely free of all fillers, thickeners, sugars & preservatives (this a must for anyone who suffers from celiacs disease). A protein powder that contains essential micro nutrients, antioxidants and fibre to assist metabolic rates and keep your digestive system functioning at optimum levels, a supplement that is ACTUALLY GOOD FOR YOU!
What Is Gluten?
Gluten is a mixture of several proteins found primarily in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten is very often used as a stabiliser in many products, including sports supplements, which can be a hazardous problem with anyone suffering intolerance’s and is on a wheat free diet.
Definition of Stabilisers: ‘Stabilisers are substances or chemicals that allow food ingredients, which do not mix well, to remain in a homogeneous state after blending’.
Another food stabilizer which is used in many protein supplements is Lecithin, which is derived from soy. Naturally, if you have soy allergies, Lecithin should be avoided. But it is also said, if you are gluten intolerant, soy should be avoided also, as it may contain extracts from wheat, barley or rye.
The importance of fibre
Not only is 180 a gluten free protein powder, it supply’s your bodies needs for protein, essential minerals, nutrients, amino acids, and contains high levels of digestible fibre. Most modern diets deliver only one tenth of the dietary fibre needed on a daily basis. 180 is of the highest natural form of fibre you can eat. Fibre is essential to help stabilize blood sugar levels, detoxify your system, and help combat the onset of many modern day diseases, including fatigue, bowel disorders and osteoporosis.
In a nutshell – Fibre stabilises blood sugar levels, improves your metabolism, digestive track and the role of the liver – which then regulates your metabolism, and processes nutrients better.
Tania Flack – Naturopath, Sydney
In a market flooded with protein powders and supplements that are filled with artificial flavourings and chemicals, it is great to find a product that I can recommend to my patients that is based on quality natural ingredients and manufactured to the highest standards. The usual Australian diet is high in refined carbohydrates which encourages an unhealthy muscle to fat ratio which ultimately contributes to many disease processes. Helping patients balance their protein to carbohydrate intake makes a big difference in their health as does the extra boost in nutrients, essentials fatty acids and natural fibre that 180 nutrition provides.
I would recommend 180 nutrition to anyone who is interested in maintaining a balanced diet and achieving optimal health. Visit Tania’s site here.
Do you have more serious health issues?
Did you know that 180 natural protein supplement is nutrient rich, low GI, high fibre/protein and gluten free? This means that due to these factors our supplement is often recommended by nutritionists to help resolve a variety of health issues, and it could help you. Do you have cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure or any other chronic disease for that matter?
Here’s how our protein supplement can help you.
Overwhelming evidence from a variety of sources, link most chronic diseases seen in the world today to physical inactivity and inappropriate diet consumption, and this is our belief too. Sadly we live in a society where we generally only treat the symptoms of ill health, not the cause. And the cause being mainly the choices we make on a daily basis, from the foods we eat and the activities we do. It is now well recognised that anyone suffering from a chronic disease should be looking at a low Glycemic Index diet. Our gluten free 180 natural protein supplement is 100% pure goodness, and would compliment anyone’s daily diet.
The problems with High-Glycemic (GI) Carbohydrates
The problem with an excessive High-Glycemic Diet, is it raises blood sugars too rapidly, and this is the number one culprit in nutritionally caused health problems. And our society is loaded with High GI foods.
Hi GI foods create an acute excessive insulin response. Insulin is an essential hormone for life, yet acute, chronic elevation of insulin leads to hyperinsulinism, which has been positively linked to Diabetes, obesity, elevated cholesterol levels, blood pressure, mood dysfunction and most chronic diseases.
We recommend a Low-Glycemic approach to food. By doing this, it will have a positive impact on your insulin response, your over all blood sugar levels and your weight too.
What foods should I be eating?
In plain English, a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. It should be organic when possible, all your garden vegetables, especially greens, certain low GI fruits (berries are good), unprocessed meats, nuts, seeds, little starch and NO SUGAR!
Food is perishable, and not made to be processed, it was designed that way. Anything with an extra long shelf life is probably processed, be suspicious. Modern diets are ill suited for our genetic composition. Evolution has not kept pace with the advances in agriculture and food processing resulting in a plague of health problems for modern man.
If you follow these simple rules to food, and combine them with exercise, you’ll be amazed with the results. Your body will be extremely grateful.
What foods shouldn’t I eat?
High GI foods for a start, they include rice, bread, candy, potato, sweets, sodas, anything that has white flour or sugar in it, and most processed carbohydrates. Processing can include bleaching, baking, grinding, and refining. If you eat a wheat free diet, you are half way there.
Think like a Caveman. If it wasn’t around back then, the chances are, you shouldn’t be eating it now.
