The Momentous Minute with Tim Caron
Today's Momentous Minute is with Tim Caron, the owner of Allegiate Gym and performance engineer at Momentous, the sports nutrition company on a mission to clean up the supplement industry.
Tim, today's question is what's most important to look for in protein supplements and how do we sort through so many different options that are available today?
Ingredient list. Look at the back of the label and actually seeing what's in there. Can you pronounce the ingredients? Do they look familiar? Are these things that you feel like something that wouldn't be hazardous to your body?
I think there's a lot of intuition that should be used when you're looking at any supplements. The quality of the ingredients matters and as we dissect each one of these proteins, they have to have these products that have a shelf life and also have some sort of ability to break down and taste good when you're mixing it.
So, looking at the back of the label and making sure it's grass-fed, making sure it's organic, making sure you can enunciate each one of those names makes a big difference in terms of how your body's going to react to that.
Looking at the nutrition label should be paramount in most people's process of evaluating everything. Make that your first and foremost priority and you should be okay.
