4. GMO Ingredients

Even though your supplement or protein powder might not list corn or soy on the label, they can still contain GMO compounds. Read the label and if you see your product contains any of the following:

  • Lactic acid
  • Vitamin C
  • Amino acids
  • Molasses
  • Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
  • Yeast products
  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein
  • Sucrose
  • Sodium ascorbate
  • Maltodextrin
  • Flavoring (natural or artificial)

Almost all of the above ingredients are derived from GMO soy or corn and none of them are good for your health. If your products contain any of the above, throw them out.

 

5. Hydrogenated Oils

These highly refined and processed oils are loaded with trans-fats and are highly unstable. They are known to increase the risk of nerve damage, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer to name a few. Hydrogenated oils are used as a filler and are often added to so-called health foods.

 

6. Heavy Metals

The strange thing about many detox products, protein shakes, and supplements is that they actually contain heavy metals, some of the very ingredients you are trying to remove from your body! You might be surprised at how many of them contain aluminum, arsenic, fluoride, and lead. Be especially careful about buying green tea, herbs, vitamins, or supplements from China as most of these have been tested and found to be contaminated with various heavy metals.
